So, just wondering if everyone rotates their favorites into daily use, or mostly one gets all the use? I have new modern for most daily, but others get in there weekly too.

I regualarly rotate vacuums and kitchen appliances. There they prove to be frequent flyer returnees...or not. :-)

I normally switch around my daily vacuums. Currently I'm using my Hoover Elite 600 as my daily one, but about once a week I go over with my 7amp Eureka Precision to deep clean. I don't really understand why I do that, I have this huge Kirby Heritage II just sitting in the hallway! My last daily vac was my Hoover Tempo. Great cleaner, just I hate hard-cover vacs (You can't see the bag inflate!) and the Y bags are tiny for an upright!

I usually use one for anywhere from a week to a month, or until I start to get tired of it and remember its flaws :)

Well, that is true, but I make exception for any of the Hoover Dial-A-Matics ;-) Right now, I'm using an Oreck Silver XL 3770 as my daily driver, and once in awhile my Hoover 61. Once I get a new brushroll, I may use the Kirby 510 I just bought off eBay now and again as well....

Normally I use the Dyson at my place (office style carpets throughout). At my moms its the Eureka Heavy Duty (Yellow hooded Sanitaire).

I try to rotate and use all of mine, but it does seem that some get more use than others, especially my Electro-Hygiene 903, Royal 602, Kirby D-50, and Electrolux G. My Hoover 29, Constellation 858, and Electro-Hygiene 966 get run frequently as well.

I do it all the time I used elux to kirby to elite to eureka to gosh whatever is laying around. I have a couple favs that are fun to use. my decade 80 is just a pleasure but my dial a matic made its way out tonight she needs a belt I did my tile with her such suction and so strong. I never really liked them until now its very nice. I have all the attachments to it also.

I usually grab and go. there are about 13 luxes in my home and several others. however I do love to use my Hoover 28 as it is a great pleasure to use. but the machine that has been my daily driver for a while now is my fantom cyclone XT. when I usually feel up to it the Dirt Devil Deluxe is the other machine I go for as it has a really nice brushroll and deep cleans and grooms my carpets better than any other machine that I have.
