This is an amazing machine. OK, so an obvious comparison is to a Dyson, which I replaced with this unit. We considered buying another Dyson...but the cost was way higher than this model. Decided to take a chance on this one and couldn't be happier. Its power is superior to the Dyson we had (as witnessed by the amount of dirt extracted from previously "cleaned" carpeting). The suction is so great on hardwoods that it's almost a bit too much. It simply does a superior job to any vac we've ever owned. Assembly was incredibly simple and easy. Whole thing took about 3 minutes to put together and required no tools. Not even a screwdriver. The essential cleaning tools are included as well as an air powered upholstery tool. All of them work well. The features on this thing are also impressive. Auto-rewind cord, push button on/off roller (very nice), and clear brush roller cover are awesome. I really appreciate the clear roller cover so you know when too much stuff has build up without having to turn the thing upside down. I would absolutely buy this machine again. Great job, Eureka.
Initially, it was great but almost on 1 yr it quit, shut down my circuit throughout the house. Eureka followed through with the 1 yr warranty. It never worked the same, it will just shut off at any given moment and the suction is nowhere close to where it used to be. This eureka had replaced my Dyson and now it just sits in the closet collecting dust while I use my old Dyson.....really disappointed and frustrated.
Our Electrolux high end Hepa canister bags became a pain. This was the replacement. I was sickened when I saw what our old machine missed. The hair I usually cut from the beater bar brush (human hair from two long blond hair female adults) and the dirt combined would have filled an old bag.
We just bought it, but I am impressed so far.
I like it, works good, hard to get the dirty stuff out though, you have to pretty much put your hand in there... Hose is WAY to short.. and the attachment, roller, does not work. I like the cord retracting feature ALOT!
I purchased this sweeper three years ago and it is still going strong! The first time I used it, I was shocked at how much filth came out of my carpets. After about a year and a half, it was not working well so I purchased a new bottom filter, which the maker recommends replacing every 6 months...oops. The suction was so powerful, I had to adjust the height setting. :D I love that I can wash the top filter and scrub out the canister. I purchased a second foam filter so that I didn't have to wait for it to dry. I love the bagless feature.
I agree with others that the tools fall off easily...I just put them in the closet as I rarely use them anyway. I have never had to replace belts or buy bags like my old sweeper. I am actually considering buying a second one for my guest house. I'm sorry for those who had a bad experience, this is the BEST sweeper I have ever owned or operated. Married 40 years, cleaned houses for many years and own a guest house...I have used a lot of different brands and this is by far my favorite.
This vacuum is only good for moving particles around. It doesn't ever actually suck anything up. I regret buying this every day.
I bought one for me and one for my daughter last Christmas. We both love the features: great suction power, retractable cord, easy to operate and clean, and the best part was the price. Hard to find great value for the money these days, but this sweeper delivers. I would definitely recommend this product.
