engelbob: That Kirby G3 was made in 1990. See how well the other two perform after 20 years. Chances are they will both be in the trash long before that.
White Kita: Kirbys are way too loud not to mention way too expensive!..... I think you will get ear damage from using it daily.
sandra Evans: i have an old kirby and its great for cleaning the fireplace
Cain Albertson: Almost any vacuum you get for however much will get the job done, the only thing is some take 1-10 passes, i.e. Orek, Kirby, shark, and industrial grade vaciums. However, some take 50-200 passes i.e. dirt devil, bissel, dyson, etc.
Christopher Selph: Excellent video, I have my Sentria for most everything in the house, and picked up a Dyson DC35 for $150 for the kitchen, car, and small messes. Much better than getting the kirby down my apartment steps, or busting it out for small messes. It worked so great I even bought my mom one.
JR: Don't forget - you can send a dead Kirby in for a $100 rebuild.
Steven King: Nice video the Kirby always wins! I'll subscribe man. Check out my video of my Kirby gen 3. They are superior! Sweet.
Steven King: The newer machines are made for quick surface cleaning. The Kirbys are made for deep penetrating and concentrated cleaning. They take a little longer to do the same surface area yet they pull up twice the deep dirt and gunk. They have to be set right. But note the nozzle and brush roller design on the always superior Kirby.
Gunzee: Right when I left college my job was selling Kirby's. I remember this test we used to do, remove the bag and put a black cloth there held with a rubber band. Then spread salt on the customers carpet. We'd use their cleaner and tell them 90% of the salt is still there, it might look clean but it's not. Then with one pass (the customer could do many passes with their machine) using the Kirby it would get all the salt. One lady had bought a brand new vax, she'd just used it once for our test. I helped her pack it up so she could return it. Another test we would do was using the cloth again vacuum the foot section of the bed. The amount of dead skin it would collect was crazy. Doing that on a child's bed or better yet on a cot usually resulted in a sale. The Kirby's were great, brilliant build and excellent performance. I'm currently looking to get one but have no idea what to go for. Any suggestion on which one to get? Ps. Nice clip, I like how the shark really massaged the carpet. The brush and suction were visible on the return pass.
iri1shman86: For what Dyson wants for one of their vacuums you mine as well spend another $400 and buy a Kirby. It also doubles as a carpet shampoo'er which if you think about it it's worth it. The shark is good too and doesn't cost nearly as much as the Dyson or Kirby but the Kirby also comes with a lifetime warranty. If you think about it you'd probably save money buying a Kirby.
Jim Walker: I paid $100 for a G6 that will still pick that carpet up off the floor when the front it raised. It will also clean up very well after a Rainbow or Hyla :)
tknier88: Kirby.... Heavy duty, I have my old beast of a vacuum and it runs like a champ... Plus if it breaks down I can order parts and do the labor myself.
My wife doesn't like the weight but it is what it is...
Jordan Moza: Dyson vacuums are ok
Jordan Moza: The shark and Kirby did not leave any thing on the floor but the dyson left 6 pieces of paper
scott owen: KIRBY ALL THE WAY
JDozaJr: Notice how fast he went with the Kirby and it still picked it all up. I paid $1200 for my Sentria II and that was with the Shampoo/deodorizer, and every attachment known to man. Along with the most powerful motor, being made in the USA and Hepa filtration you can't beat it.
Maxx Fordham!:+caramelchaos Oh, well that's true, Kirbys do have that much going for them.
Maxx Fordham!: Oh, I like the sort of "crisp" way you divided the usual phrase "back and forth" with "and one pass..."! :-)
