At our local billiards club, we have Dyson V8 Animal vacuum cleaners.

They're really great for vacuuming tables. The head is nice and wide and cleans the tables with only a few passes. At home, I've got a small handheld and it takes forever to vacuum with such a small tool.

I have used rotating vacuums and canister vacs on my Simonis since 2007 about once a month. Never had a problem/Kirby Vacuum lol.

Huhhhhh?? I'm stickin' to what i said, i've never seen Simonis in a room that had any level of traffic where the cloth didn't look like crap after three years. It usually looks pretty worn in half that time. Cleaning regimen must do wonders.

Iíve been using this on my table for three years. Itís a Shark model v15z with the brush assembly and belt removed. I got the idea from a thread I saw on here a long time ago. Thing works greatóbuilt in hose with brush, crevice tool, plenty of suction for the job, and it was only a little over $30 if I remember correctly.

Well its a long story for a guy typing with his thumbs....but here goes. 1990 I built a house, not being a rich man I was strapped for cash afterwards. Shortly after moving in a door to door salesman driving a Porsche came a knocking at the door. He was selling Kirby vacuums and could only fit one in the front of his Targa. My wife's mother always used Kirbys so of course my wife had to have one. After an impressive demonstration the salesman left without the vacuum and with $1200 dollars of our money

After 20 years of nearly daily use(the wife is a clean freak)the transmission went out on the drive system and we had to send it in for repairs. The repair place decided not to fix it but instead sent us a new machine Then I started to feel better knowing that I got two vacuums for $1200 or $600 each. The Kirby is bullet proof and really dose an amazing job. I thought I was the only one that had used it for a pool table(hence the "lol")

We recently re-floored our entire house with hardwood and tile so we bought a Shark lift away designed just for hardwood and tile, its really an amazing cleaner also and feather lite. It turns into a canister vac or upright and you can choose brush speed from low to high or turn the brushes off altogether.

I always wipe the rubber wheels off with alcohol before I use them on my table cloth as to not mark the cloth. We still have the Kirby but the dang thing is heavy and I now use the Shark due to how light it is.

May I suggest...... Whatever is used have a HEPA filter in it. Regular filters allow the dust to pass through it back into the room.

I didnít even realize it has that little hepa filter inside the screen filter. I had always just emptied the dust cup. I clean the whole thing after use now and havenít had any problems since.
