I have three sheepdog-esque Bearded Collies with loooong hair that tangles in the vacuum. (That vacuum brush is called a beater bar, who knew?) I have to pre-brush the carpet with a rubber lint brush, then pick up the bigger tumbleweeds by hand before I vaccuum with the hose attachmen,t otherwise their hair wraps up the beater bar and freezes it in action. I always have to stop after 5 minutes to disassemble the thing and cut the hair out with scissors. Would love to find a vacuum that could accommodate extra long hair so I don't have to do my carpet cleaning trifecta weekly!
