With the Eureka PowerSpeed Lightweight Upright Vacuums, floor care is handled with multi-surface efficiency, a trait the best upright vacuum needs. Because of its powerful suction on hard floors and carpet alike, it’s essentially the best vacuum for pet hair. Lift away dust and debris with the crevice tool dusting brush or tackle pet hair with the pet tool. Visit our best vacuum cleaner reviews for recommendations on other great household cleaners.

Why We Like It – Eureka PowerSpeed Lightweight Upright

Featuring a much larger cleaning path than traditional vacuums, Eureka PowerSpeed Lightweight Upright Vacuum Cleaners are perfect for large messes, especially cleaning after pets.

  • Larger floor cleaning path than average
  • 960W of suction power
  • Easy maintenance
  • Cord length should be longer

Power, Speed & Efficiency

As an all-purpose vacuum, similar to the Hoover SmartWash advanced pet upright carpet cleaner, the Eureka PowerSpeed bagless upright vacuum cleaner nails just about every aspect. Its suction power of 8 amps allows for multi-surface cleaning, with adjustable height. More importantly, its cleaning path of 12.6-inches is over half a foot wider than traditional vacuums. Above ground, you have an upholstery tool, crevice tool, and Pet Turbo brush specifically for tackling pet hair. However, the Dyson V8 Animal Cordless Vacuum Cleaner is a league better against pet hair. Cord length should be 30-35 feet instead of 25.

Alternatively, cordless vacuums tend to get in places that corded vacuums can’t. Our reviews of the Dyson Cyclone V10 absolute lightweight cordless stick vacuum cleaner and the Dirt Devil Quick Lite have more details.

Bin Capacity, Maintenance & Durability

Featuring a 4.1-liter dustbin, you’ll carry quite a bit of debris before having to empty. Thankfully, it’s a canister vacuum with a quick-release handle, so no vacuum bags are required, unlike the Miele Complete C3 Marin. To maintain the Eureka PowerSpeed Bagless Vacuum Cleaner, all you have to do is occasionally clean out the canister to prevent dust build-up and wash the filter. Just as you would for the Shark rocket corded ultra-light, which is very easy to maintain, too.


Why grab the Eureka PowerSpeed Lightweight Upright Vacuum when you could have a Dyson V11 Vacuum or a Shark Navigator? For starters, the Dyson V11 Vacuum is incredibly expensive—7.5 times more, in fact. And while the Shark Navigator is amazing for its price, it doesn’t have that Pet Turbo tool that you’d absolutely need if you have pets.

Eureka PowerSpeed Lightweight Upright Wrap Up

For what it’s worth, the Eureka PowerSpeed Lightweight Upright Vacuum is the ideal companion to have if you live with at least one pet, thanks to its Pet Turbo brush. Wielding 960W of suction power on top of that and a wider cleaning path also makes it a great all-purpose vacuum. And maintaining it is quick, painless, and doesn’t cost a penny.
