The Eureka Easy Clean is portable enough to use for quick clean up anywhere. Weighing in at 5 pounds with a 6 inch cleaning path, this powerful hand held cleaner is ideal for use in the car, on the stairs and for cleaning upholstery. The Eureka Easy Clean 71B hand vac is one of the top selling hand vacuum on the market, and for good reason.
The Unique Riser Visor System
The Riser Visor is an innovative solution to cleaning carpet on stairways. A plastic covers flips up allowing the revolving brush to clean vertical carpet on the stairs and then flips back down to clean horizontally. The brush can also be turned off for cleaning bare floors and turned back on for cleaning dirt, dust and pet hair from all types of flooring from carpet to hard woods, laminate, tile and linoleum.
The rotating brush works well for stairs, furniture, and surface tops that where upright vacuums are hard to use. The brush has a six inch cleaning path width. The brush is said to be quite strong however, and users should use caution when vacuuming delicate surfaces. The rotating brush has an on/off switch if you want to turn it off to use the hose.
The bag-less Easy Clean collects dust and dirt in a clear dust cup that can be easily emptied and cleaned. When full, simply remove the dust cup and the filter. Brush the filter off over a trash can. Cleaning the filter with water is not recommended. The dust cup can be emptied into the trash can and cleaned with soap and hot water. Dry the cup before using. The soft material covering the oval grip makes using the cleaner easy and comfortable.
Powerful Dual Motors
With two motors, one for the rotating brush and the other motor powering suction, this small machine is big on power. The motors are powered by a 5.5 amp engine and weighs just 5.5 pounds.While this is heavier than many other hand held vacuums, it is one of the more powerful handhelds available. The reason it is so powerful is that it is not cordless like many hand held vacuums. While this is somewhat of a drawback when trying to clean cars and some other places, electrical vacuums are generally more powerful than battery operated ones. Plus, you don't have to worry about recharging a battery. The power cord is 20 feet long. That gives you a wide enough range of motion to clean just about anywhere, and extension cords can always be used if a longer length is needed.
The hose works well for hard to reach spots in cars and houses. The hose also sets this vacuum apart from many other hand-held vacuums that don't come with them. This hose is three times longer than the length of the actual vacuum, which is great when trying to reach high places.
The handy crevice tool allows cleaning in hard to reach corners and edges and is stored on board the cleaner for easy access.
