I bought a proper more versatile machine a true legend, a Kirby.
Far more versatile than a Dyson, to do what a Kirby does i would need about 3 different Dyson to do what the Kirby can do.
Well Kirby vacuums are by far the best vacuum ever made by anyone. They do everything. But at the same time, you have no leg to stand on to complain
about costs of vaccums if you own a Kirby or want a Kirby. A Kirby vacuum is double to triple the cost of the most expensive Dyson. It will last more
than triple the time, probably never break, and does way more, but it is one hell of an expensive machine.
You get what you pay for. I grew up with Kirby vacuums, but my house is mainly hardwood floor, and my wife wanted a Dyson which is lighter going up
and down the steps I keep carpeted in case my kids fall down them. If I had carpets in my living room and dining room I would definitely have a Kirby.
That also means I would have to haver a salesperson come, where they will then charge whatever the maximum they think you will pay is. Thats the
downside of Kirby. Have to go through sales people. Cant just buy one. You schedule a demo, and cant get a strait answer on a price no matter how much
you ask. Only the most experienced sales people who know how to talk you into all the extra accessories will come out for that demo to sell you more
than you need. They can sell it all to you for $1000, but will charge you $3500 if you are a sucker.
I know this for a FACT. When I was younger I worked as a door to door salesman, and I almost went and sold Kirbys. I know a lot of people who actually
did, and some made a lot of cash. A buddy of mine put some concrete blocks through the manager's vehicle back in 2003 because of their screwed up
commission structure setup to screw new people, and my buddy wasn't too smart.
Its all a scam or a hustle, depending on how you look at it. If you buy a Kirby, buy it used. They dont break and you can buy the parts from
suppliers, unlike the vacuum itself.
