Oreck Standard Portable Canister with Shoulder Strap - 830662
The more I use this machine the more I hate it. When over your shoulder the suction hose bends out quite a lot, so you need space to manouvre and the rear vent blows out so much air that anything delicate blows away. I use it by dragging it along the ground. The suction with the large attachment is not good. I have a parrot and it does not suck up bird seed. The good points are the long length of lead, lightness and compactness for easy storage.

Couldnt manage without it!
I can honestly say that this is one of the best items I have ever bought. It has made housework so much easier. It has a great suction for the size and I just love the light-weight of it. The on and off switch are also conveniently placed. As it comes with the extension tools you don't have to bend down too much either (but saying that I am only 5' tall). It also has a good length of cord fitted. Vacuuming around the edges of my wood floors and cleaning my stair carpet is so easy. I couldn't have designed this better myself. This is also a brilliant price, I couldnt find anywhere cheaper than QVC . I've tried all the other makes in the past and know you can buy cheaper alternatives but none can match Oreck. I wont use anything else.
