Itís been a while since I posted between starting a family and my obligations at my previous job, but Iím back with a new vacuum I bought a few months ago! This was from my local Sears Hometown Store and it was the display model at said store that I purchased for about $140. Iím really liking this vacuum a lot and itís been my daily driver as of late!

I'm strictley a rainbow guy but I have this vacuum with the hepa bags installed that I use around my woodstove. Paid 179 for mine. It does have a lot of power even when the hepa bag is full of ash and wood debris. The tools are very cheap and the hose is rather short but it's a pretty good little vacuum

That metallic copper orange colour is very cool. Iím glad Cleva finally added some headlights to the more deluxe models. I wonder how the Cleva versions in the independent vac stores compare in features and performance.

Isn't that a rebadged Kenmore cannister vacuum. I'd say a riccar sunburst but it looks like a Kenmore.

I love the color too. My experience with one of the Titans was limited, my work had the T9000 for a little bit before it was gone, likely that it got sold. So performance between the two, the same. With features, they both have mostly different attachments. Overall between the two, I would take the Kenmore over the Titan. I actually prefer to store the attachments on the Kenmore than the Titan because they still have those cheap plastic doors that are always so flimsy and can break easily. Also I don't like the dusting brush that comes with the Titan. And the handle on the Kenmore feels much better on my hand. Only thing that I like better on the Titan is the headlight.

Love the color

but I have a question. Do these use the old Kenmore bag design where the bag slides down on the collar? My experience with these in the past was that there was never a good seal between the bag/collar and dust would leak into the bag chamber, no matter what type of high-quality bags you use. Other than that, I loved the Kenmore canisters... but they would also develop a short where the quick disconnect connects from hose to wand/pn.

This does use the Kenmore C/Q bags like the older Progressives and Whispertones use. It seems to have a okay seal but we will see as time progresses.
I use the HEPA Cloth Bags with mine and it does a good job of keeping dust out of the bag compartment.

I have the red 400, so far so good on the bag chamber dust.
