You wouldn\u2019t expect such an affordable vacuum to have great suction power but the Eureka Canister Vacuum does, and why it\u2019s the best vacuum for laminate floors. This makes it the ideal choice on a budget. At the same time, it\u2019s incredibly lightweight\u2014just 8 lbs\u2014which is great for elderly individuals to wield.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Eureka Canister Vacuum\r\nLightweight, easy to wield, and affordable are the three cornerstones of the Eureka Canister Vacuum, an ideal choice for budget and convenience.\r\n\r\nPower\r\nThe kind of suction power the Eureka Canister Vacuum is wielding isn\u2019t to be taken lightly. Going over a carpet, for example, can and will lift it off the floor. That\u2019s comparable power to Dyson V8 Animal Cordless Vacuum Cleaners, ripping pet hair and dirt out of carpets easily.\r\nSpeed & Efficiency\r\nJudging by the power of the Eureka Canister Vacuum, there\u2019s very few instances where you\u2019ll go over a spot again. It\u2019s simply that powerful that you\u2019ll get what you\u2019re after in one go, making it incredibly efficient at floor care, whether it\u2019s bare floors or carpeted.\r\nBin Capacity & Maintenance\r\nHandling up to 2 liters of debris in its dust cup isn\u2019t outside the realm of possibility; in fact, that's the average capacity for smaller vacuums like this one, and just slightly under the Shark Navigator Lift Away. It\u2019s also a bagless canister vacuum\u2014unlike the Eureka Mighty Mite Canister Vacuums\u2014which adds a small amount of maintenance to it, but otherwise fantastic!\r\nDurability\r\nWe didn\u2019t expect anything less than cheap plastic for the construction of Eureka Canister Upright Vacuums. You have to make cuts somewhere, right? It isn\u2019t necessarily a bad thing, but does explain its low price. On the bright side, the plastic is hardy and will always vacuums floors so long as you take care of it.\r\nValue\r\nThere\u2019s very few, strained reasons not to pick up third party corded canister vacuum cleaners like the Eureka Canister Vacuum, over something like the Kenmore Elite Vacuum. You get a crevice tool, plus washable components. And with an 8 lbs. body, they\u2019re the best vacuums for the elderly. Body. You\u2019ll have a hard time finding something better for that price.\r\nEureka Canister Vacuum Wrap Up\r\nChallenging the status quo, the Eureka Canister Vacuum provides that high-end suction for a low, affordable cost. And it only weighs 8 lbs! On top of that, it\u2019s bagless, so you\u2019ll never have to buy vacuum bags, saving you more money. A dustbin of 2 liters is average, but still admirable.
