I bought this solely for using upstairs and it works perfectly on bathroom tiled floor, bare wooden floors and carpeted staircase and landing. It's light, easy to use and the lead is long enough to use in all rooms whilst plugged into the landing socket.
Disappointed with this. It's large and the claim that the larger dies", eg strip cutter fits behind the handle is misleading. It does fit - but width-ways and is unprotected and subject to damage. There is also a problem with the tote toppling forward if not loaded in a certain way - but there is no advice on how to do this. Would have been fine at half the price but at over seventy pounds I think it is poor value for money
