Does anyone know of a good shop vac or vac with wide hose that picks up hair without clogging, or if it does, it's not often and is easy to unclog? Prefer bagless and reusable filter. Sweeping then vacuuming is too much for me. Tia!

[MENTION=27627]Artista[/MENTION], GuineaDad uses the bottom half of what I think might be a Bissell vacuum. He uses it in his cage to pick up the hay and poo. I don't know if you ever watch any of his videos on Youtube but he shows it being used in many of his videos. I know that many people have asked him what kind it is and he responds in a couple videos. He's never mentioned if it picks up the hair but he seems really happy with it. I have a Dyson wall-mounted handheld vacuum and I've used it a few times in my cage but I wouldn't say it's the best for a guinea pig cage. It seems to suck up the fleece too much.

Thanks Kelsie!
Yeah I bought that bissel sweeper pro based on his vids. You get too close to the edge of the liners and it goes in. Then you need to pull it out. Also the collection tray is small. Need to empty it more frequently. Wish it was larger capacity as I need it for the carpet too that gets full of hay.
