Cathy's Vacuum

Cathy has this vacuum and she's been using it all over my house. She said she bought it 4 years ago and it's still working well. Considering that the price at is under 50 bucks, and we've gone through 4 cheap vacuums in the last 2 years, I'm impressed.

But I notice 2 things when Cathy vacuums. She empties the bin (it's bagless) after vacuuming half a room. She also removes the filter often, shaking out, and sometimes rinsing it. After rinsing it, she wraps it in a towel to squeeze the water out, getting it ready for immediate use again.
I can see that I have not done the necessary routine maintenance on my vacuums.
Meanwhile, we've ordered an air filter from Oreck that comes with a free vacuum.
