We had a 9 year old Eureka old model vacuum. It was very good as in cleaning power and it was just very convenient to use. Was light enough weight to carry with ease and easy for transportation within the house, vacuumed really well, very durable and most of all it was one of those vacuum that worked well in overall any surface area. Being so old we had to get a new one and were looking for another one that had same functions. By reading the description Eureka 6833B would do the job. It was also good to see that they had additional hypo allergenic filter you can purchase to clip on. The bad thing about this vacuum was that it was much heavier than we expected and was not easy to maneuver with it. It wasn't for all surface area. It was more for carpets and rugs than mixture. It was hard to carry and vacuum the wooden stairs.
