My husband well (we) are starting a new business. I'm split time between my job (working two full time jobs basically) and he is full time getting his place up and off the ground. I have been working at getting the office and showroom up set up. With that being said I took my Kirby to the site and have been using that and I wasn't sure if I was going to keep it at the site or get a new vacuum for the business. Realizing that now everyone will have the patience to use the Kirby I went and bought a Bissell Cleanview Bagged upright. While Bissell isn't my go to brand they are an okay brand. But I feel like they come with one major flaw which is that they only come with one short little wand. I have never understood this. So me being the problem solver that I am I ordered two extra wants just so that I had that extra reach.

Why does Bissell think that this is okay. One short wand and it's about the equivalent of using the hose.

Basically just like everybody else in department stores, they do it to cut costs.

Off the shelf vacuums from the store are not meant to be used in a commercial or industrial setting, they aren't built or equipped for this which is why you void the warranty if the vacuum is used for industrial purposes. In a normal household setting you'd likely never need 2 wands unless you live in a McMansion that has vaulted ceilings. In my house the ceilings are only 7 feet even, so I can easily reach with just a normal vacuum hose.

I'm not using it out in the shopwhere all the fabrication and work is being done. It's used for the showroom and offices. We have a couple of shop vacs for those areas. I went with this model mostly because it seems to be the easiest to use and upkeep. I guess it was looking at a matter of cleaning displays, shelves, tight spots that type of thing. I use the vacuum for everything at home and work and extra reach is always welcome.
