Lightweight Vacuum for mother.
I am shopping for a lightweight vacuum for my arthritic mother. She currently has a Panasonic upright with on board tools that works just fine, but it is kind of heavy. The local vac store has a few options. The Riccar Supralite models, a few different Oreck models and the new Hoover Platinum Upright. I was leaning towards the Riccar RSL5 model. I liked the lifetime belt (with hall sensor), steel brushroll and the two speeds. The new Hoover looks promising, but I can not find any reviews on it. The sales lady steered me away from the Oreck models, citing a few niggling quirks. Any other vacs I should consider? Anyone here have a Supralite model with feedback? Any info would be greatly appreciated.
