I second the Eureka bagless. They series is called the Eureka Whirlwind (some are all the "Lightspeed" version), it's a bagless upright and it ROCKs. When I got this vacuum we still had our Rottie and the cats and our son...so we had fur and crumbs galore...these things are powerful, the hose is a little wider so stuff never gets stuck and it's so easy to empty without having the bag. Here's a link to epinions on these vacuums and their reviewskitkat said:I have a Eureka Model 5856AV/BV that we got from Sam's that was $100 but I can't find this model anymore. It was bagless and a great vacuum but we never fixed the broken belt. If that's not the model #, that is what the vacuum looked like though.
