Sebo K3 vs Bank
Our remodel included replacing carpet and tile flooring with acacia hardwood floors. Time to buy a new vacuum. My old upright is beyond ready for retirement or reassignment. We need a vacuum that will handle: carpeting (mostly old but will be replaced in the lifespan of whatever vacuum I buy), hardwood flooring, area oriental carpets, one cat, one dog, two adults and one soon to be off to college last child, lots of dusty air and pine pollen in the spring and summer, snow and ice in winter-which hopefully will never make it from the mudroom to the hardwood-but it's hard to take off snowboots when nature calls.
The two local stores recommended Sebo K3 and the Bank vacuum (by simplicity with German components?).
Anyone with similar household used either of these or some other brand/model? I'd like your assement of how well the one you bought met your needs.
