Make cleaning a breeze with the Kenmore 22614 Pet Friendly Bagless Canister Vacuum. The Pet PowerMate™ attachment lifts hair, dander and more from furniture, rugs and carpeting in seconds. Compression technology means there's no loss of suction.
The HEPA-certified filter can be trusted to remove almost all significant allergens from air flowing through the vacuum.
Easy to Use
The compact size with a tight-turning radius makes this vacuum easy to move, lift and store. The filterless dust cup gathers dirt in a round chamber that empties quickly and saves you the cost of replacement bags. Upper and lower quick releases let you easily attach and detach on-board tools at the press of a button, making transitioning between surfaces a breeze.
I wanted a canister vacuum with a powerhead, retractable cord, metal telescoping wand, power controls on the handle, easily accessible tools, bagless with a washable HEPA filter. It even comes with a small powerhead to pick up pet hair. I use it for my stairs. WOW, I am so happy with this vacuum. This model has all these features in a sleek looking design.Plus it is quiet The powerful suction is impressive. Light weight and so maneuverable. Very easy to empty the dust container. The HEPA filter sits in a soft rubber case. Looks very easy to clean. This is the most I have ever spent on a vacuum. I would compare it to a more expensive brand that promises no loss of suction. This is a more versatile product. Plus it's a Sears Kenmore. Great quality. The only complaint i have is it took 27 days for it to get to my local Sears store. Twice the delivery date was changed. I called customer service to find out what the problem was. All the Rep could tell me is it was backordered. Very frustrating, but ultimately worth the wait.
I had high hopes for this machine based on reviews and the fact I've owned several Kenmore vacuums, including two bagless machines. While the overall operation is sufficient for cleaning most surfaces, there are a few things to keep in mind: -The wand "lock" on the powerhead didn't work right out of the box. Since home is a few hours away from the store, I decided to let it go but the wand does fall over because it won't lock. -The cord is short -- shorter than most Kenmore machines. This means unplugging and plugging every room if not more. -The hose is short. Both of my other Kenmore bagless units have had longer hoses. This means I can't leave the unit on the floor while I do the stairs nor can I reach very far into the car interior without lugging the whole base unit up into the car with it. -Emptying this machine is messy and inconvenient. Other bagless manufacturers have figured this one out. When you unlatch the door to the dust cup, only the dirt and heavy debris will fall out. If you have pets (and this machine is aimed at people with pets), you'll have to unlock the whole mechanism and pull the hair off the interior screen and get dust and dirt all over you in the process. Your other machines had this part down...why mess it up now? -The dusting brush is useless--stiff plastic bristles. Kenmore used to always ship with real horse hair, soft bristles but not anymore. -There is NO bare floor tool. Thankfully I have several but if you don't have one, you'll be disappointed with the results on bare and wood flooring. The suction is fine and it does a decent job of cleaning deeply-imbedded dirt out of the carpet. The Powermate Pet attachment is good and works well. Overall I think Sears should be embarrassed by this machine. If it cost $100, I wouldn't quibble but at almost $300, there are other machines out there that are better built, better equipped and more reasonably priced. If you've been a Kenmore fan in the past, be prepared for the new line of cheap plastic junk coming your way.
This is an exceptional vacuum. It picks up everything, easy to move around, light weight and easy to empty and clean. No bags is definitely a money saver.
I ordered a this vacuum because my last Kenmore vacuum lasted over 10 years and I absolutely loved it. This vacuum quit working after 6 months and to get to get someone to help me get it fixed was a night mare.
I ams so hsppy with my Kenmore Pet Friendly Canister Vacuum Cleaner. Light easy to hsndle..cleans GREAT!!
It is a bit awkward dragging around while vacuuming. I was not impressed with the carpet cleaning performance. It is convenient switching from rug to floors. I was hoping for a short bristled attachment that can be used on stairs and for throw rugs. The dust tank capacity is adequate and easy to empty.
