The Eureka Easy Clean 71B\u2019s strong suction makes it a shoe-in for the best pet vacuum. It\u2019s designed to be the best vacuum for pet hair, in its own right. And since it\u2019s so small and easy to wield, it crosses over as the best car vacuum, too. More importantly, its Riser Visor system is intelligently designed to clean stairs and upholstery.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Eureka Easy Clean 71B\r\nFor a small vacuum, the Eureka Easy Clean 71B still packs a mean punch and is intelligently designed to lift pet hair from furniture, with a Riser Visor system that makes cleaning stairs a cinch.\r\n\r\nPower, Speed & Efficiency\r\nRunning the Eureka Easy Clean 71B is 120V and a 5.5 amp motor. On the other end that gives you ample suction power for lifting pet hair from carpets and upholstery alike. But its power doesn\u2019t stop there, it can also vacuum over bare floors. Since this is a hand held vacuum, speed is less of a factor, but efficiency is. This is best seen with its Riser Visor system, in combination with the brush roller. You\u2019ll get to vacuum every inch of your stairs, at any angle, making it the best vacuum for stairs. Not even the all-powerful Dyson V8 Animal Cordless Vacuum Cleaners have that.\r\nBin Capacity, Maintenance & Durability\r\nBin capacity is on the smaller side\u2014just 0.2 ounces\u2014but that\u2019s to be expected from handheld vacuums. For comparison, the Miele Complete C3 Marin has a capacity of 152 ounces. This is corded, not battery-powered like some models of Black Decker and Dirt Devil. Durability is solid and lightweight, albeit cheap plastic.\r\nValue\r\nIs the Eureka Easy Clean 71B worth investing in? For starters, it\u2019s cheap\u2014just under $60. The purpose is very limiting, but it\u2019s incredibly efficient in what it\u2019s designed to do. We wouldn\u2019t suggest you use this as your main vacuum, rather as a way to detail your furniture. For more top to bottom cleaning, however, perhaps investing in the Dyson V11 Vacuum instead. Better yet, there are alternative Eureka models, such as Eureka EasyClean Stick Vacuums and Eureka Easy Clean Upright Vacuums.\r\nEureka Easy Clean 71B Wrap Up\r\nThe Eureka Easy Clean 71B has a niche purpose, one that it carries out with power and efficiency. You\u2019ll see it when you transfer from carpet to bare floors, then to stairs with its Riser Visor system. While not battery powered, at least with a corded vacuum you\u2019ll always get consistent performance.
