That’s one serious vacuum.

    Also handy for snow removal?

  • "In the event of a nuclear attack, specially trained teams of fallout decontamination technicians are dispatched to make the world safe for democracy again."

      Said special training appears to have glossed over the subject of personal protection a bit…

      "These specially trained teams may also be available on loan for asbestos removal"… if the fallout doesn't kill them first

    What a terrible design. First, that head is way too tiny, it looks like it's for cleaning throw pillows.
    Second, why is it shaped like a vacuum cleaner? Because it is? That's silly, it's because lawns are just like a big carpet that's outside right? NO. Lawns are like lawns. Make it shaped like a lawnmower, with a big wide head on some floppy flexy mount so it stays on the ground even when the ground is lumpy which it is.
    Think about actually using this thing. Only stop thinking "This is stupid, why am I even doing this?" It's because you appear to be in the army and they said so. You've got this tiny little head and you have to make eleventy sweeps to clear the area within wanding range without walking. nyurrrrr, nyurrrrr, nyurrrrr, nyurrrrr, nyurrrrr, nyurrrrr, nyurrrrr, nyurrrrr, nyurrrrr, nyurrrrr, nyurrrrr.
    Then you move on to the next patch, which you can because at least the hose is long. Then you get to the end of the hose and have to move the machine. So you tug on the hose and it falls over, because the hose is attached at the top and the wheels have sunk into the ground because they're tiny casters and this thing looks like it weighs 150lbs.
    How could this be so stupid? Is it because it's really is an inside vacuum and they just put it out here because photoshoot? Yes obviously.
    And those don't look like army pants, he's probably not in the army.

      At least the power cord is long.

      Besides shouldn't the women being doing this? I mean it is vacuuming.

      Look it's a fifties picture. So I'm answering in a fifties male manner.
