Great Vaccum! No expensive filters!

Comments about Electrolux Nimble Upright Vacuum,:

I love my Electrolux Nimble. I have four pets, two dogs and two cats, and the vacuum cleaner has wonderful suction. The canister is really easy to dump, and I get three or four canisters full of hair every time I vaccum. It has great attachments, too, with an extendable hose that makes it really easy to vacuum my curtains, furniture, and stairs.

The best part is that it doesn't require any expensive replacement filters. It has one HEPA filter and a sponge filter on the top of the canister, and all you have to do is rinse it, let it dry, and put it back in. In comparison to other bagless vacuum cleaners, this one is the best. Great bang for your buck!

Maneuverability
Easy movement. Not heavy at all, and it has a handle that you can pick it up. I use it to vacuum my stairs, even!

Ease of Maintenance
Very easy to clean. You can take the inside canister out to wipe clean, and when you want to empty the canister, you just open the bottom into the trash can.

Suction Performance
Great suction; I have pets and it gets up ALL the hair.

Versatility
Very easy to use on both furniture and carpet. It even has a button that you can change from carpet to bare floor. Works great!

Design
Very nice design. Easy to keep clean, maintain, and it looks great, too! Doesn't get a grimy look after a while like some other vacuum cleaners.

Durability
I've had this vacuum cleaner for over a year, and it works just like when I used it out of the box. Very durable.

Great suction, all attachments are stored on the machine. Easy

Comments about Electrolux Nimble Upright Vacuum,:

I have pets, when I got this vacuum I was amazed at how much pet hair was in my carpets. I used my old vacuum frequently and thought I was cleaning. This new machine must have been pulling six months of pet hair that my old vacuum was unable to pull. The canister had to be emptied 6 times just for my small living room. I feel that my home is much cleaner as a result of buying this vacuum.

Maneuverability
It moves great, easy to turn. The powerhead is a little too large to go under my couch so I have to use the attachments or move the couch to get under the couch.

Ease of Maintenance
Cleaning the machine is not pleasant. The manual says to wipe the inside of the canister with a damp rag. I found that only caused streaks inside the canister and left dirt. I put mine in the sink and use the sprayer and let it dry. The filter needs to be washed also. The manual says to let the filter dry 24 hours. Mine was not dry after 24 hours and I live in a dry climate. I'm afraid if the filter is not completely dry it will cause damage to the motor.

Suction Performance
Amazing suction. When you use the attachments the suction seems to diminish but I was still impressed with the overall performance using the attachments on my furniture and stairs.

Design
I like the fact that the hose and attachments are all attached to the vacuum. No longer have to run to another part of the house to get attachments in the middle of vacuuming.

Durability
I have not owned mine long, so it is hard to say how well it hold up to the test of time. I have owned other Electrolux vacuums and they have a phenominal life. Hope to get many years of use.

Nice to look at, not so nice to use.

By

Comments about Electrolux Nimble Upright Vacuum,:

At first, I thought this would be a great vacuum. It has good maneuverability and I liked the design. However, suction utilizing attachments is almost non-existent. Emptying the canister is a dusty mess. I would recommend doing it outside and placing the canister in a bag and sealing the top while doing it. Remember to hold your breath after emptying because there will be a dust cloud. I could live with this if the suction were better.

Maneuverability
Very maneuverable.

Ease of Maintenance
The filter takes forever to dry. The canister is not easily emptied without causing a mess.

Suction Performance
It is satisfactory using it as a floor model, but once you use the vacuum hose and attachments the suction is greatly reduced.

Versatility
Not really known.

Design
Pleasing to the eye.

Durability
Not known.
