There is an existing thread about vacuum cleaners at http://www.philmug.ph/forum/f88/vacuum-cleaner-36085/ but its locked, I think.. So, whats your vacuum cleaner? what brand to look for, what brand to stay away from? inexpensive replacement filter currently on the local market for some good heavy duty vacuum cleaner. At Ace Hardware, available good brands are Ridgid(made in China), Nilfisk(made in EU), and Karcher(portugal? i cant remember anymore). also, Where to buy | Dyson.ph looks like dyson is locally available now.
