    vacuum cleaner recommendations?

    Any vacuum cleaner recommendations?

    I have shoulder pain from arthritis, rotator cuff issues, etc. that only flares up if I do something I shouldn't.
    I just moved to a bigger home with rugs and need a vacuum cleaner.
    My daughter's is aggravating my shoulder. It's one of those with the heavy part of it high on the handle.
    I thought I should just get a cannister, but I keep reading those are "heavy" for the elderly or those with Parkinson's etc. so I wonder if cannisters are bad for bad shoulders too.

    Any vacuum cleaner advice or experience is appreciated.

    And, yes, I've been to doctors, had x-rays, MRIs etc. and might actually consider surgery after I get my COVID vaccine since I am now living close to family again.

    Mom has a Tineco A10 Hero - it's a cordless. But it only weighs around 5 pounds. She has shoulder issues, it was the lightest one we could find. May give it a look over.

    My daughter's vacuum is a:
    Shark LZ601, APEX UpLight Lift-Away DuoClean with Self-Cleaning Brushroll Stick Vacuum
    It weighs 10.7 lbs, with a lot of the weight just below the handle, which is the problem. It's been a very popular design for the last 6+ years.

    There is a Dyson V7 of similar design and price that only weighs 5.29 pounds, but it is cordless, which means when the battery runs down, no more vacuuming --and I really don't think my shoulder would appreciate it.

    But I am open to feedback and others' experiences.

    I considered that one, but the reviews said the battery charge lasts only about 20 minutes.
    I suppose having a battery that cuts me off after 20 minutes would prevent me from making my shoulder hurt.
    What does your mom say about it?

    I would look into the Dysons...their newest ones have a longer running time, light weight, but pricey.
    I agree that you won't be doing a lot in a single time. 5 minutes in one or two rooms a day goes a long way. They are very efficient and easy to keep clean regarding maintenance.
    Whatever one you get, ultimately it will be better with a split cleaning schedule and less balanced weight while vacuuming.

    Re: vacuum cleaner recommendations?

    Hi. Sometimes I also have some problems with my right shoulder but honestly I can't understand how vacuum cleaner can help. Can anyone explain that? Thanks
