I'll admit to using the Sebo for domestics.

I have a Victor D9 (tub vac) with electric brush-head, which does a superior job, but takes up more valuable van-space.

Kirbys are great vacs and very powerful, but forget the ancillary carpet shampoo attachments. If used purely as a pre vac then I think it's hard to beat.

Forgot to mention, Great vacuum, but over priced!

You may get a good deal on a second hand one though.

Vorwerk , excellent machines and in my opinion as good as a Kirby but cheaper and easier to use.

Thanks guys.

Just ordered a sebo from the clean machine.

It always pays to ask!
