14" wide vacuum opening. Virtually clog free, bag is right behind brush roll. Can pick up nails, bolts, pencils/pens, silverware, etc. Has a stainless steel telescoping handle, and 40' power cord. Video can be seen on you tube. All jobs I do now are prevacuumed, so don't have a need for this machine. Has not been used much. These vacuums are being sold online for around 5 to 6 hundred dollars new. Extra bags included. (217)424-8916.
