JUST PUBLISHED - Our 2013 picks for the Best Bagless Vacuums.
This modern looking Hoover upright is very maneuverable and lightweight. It is also bagless and has cleanable filters. Owners generally like the UH72400 finding it easy to assemble and to move up and down stairs. On the downside the unit has a smallish dust canister so emptying is frequent, and it does not come with an air powered hand tool – a popular tool that upright owners often use for cleaning stairs and upholstery.
The Oreck Insight upright vacuum (model U7010ECS) gets very solid ratings from owners and is noted for being exceptionally lightweight and powerful. It is a bare bones machine however and while it includes HEPA filtration it comes with little else. It is bagged and performs well on low pile carpet and bare floors but is difficult to push on deep pile carpet.
If you want aninexpensive lightweight canister vacuum for bare floors then the Eureka AirExcel may fit your needs. But if you have lots of carpet to clean this machine is probably not the best choice. Owners like the unit’s powerful suction, relatively quiet operation and retractable power cord but lament the lack of a brushbar in the nozzle which impairs its performance on carpet..
The Bissell CleanView 9595 is a fairly inexpensive bagless upright but it still includes a nice array of tools and it carries a 2-year warranty. The “OnePass” idea seems like marketing noise to us but owners do report that the unit has solid suction and good pickup. The power cord, hose and extension wand are all on the short side however.
This bagless upright is fairly popular but that is likely because it is inexpensive. It can be found online for between $50 and $70. Consumers do not give this vacuum cleaner very high grades. Many owners feel that, despite the low price, it still isn’t worth the money, and they cite the need to frequently clean the filter, the short hose, and the small dust canister as reasons.
The Oreck XL 2100RHS is an upright vacuum that is getting good owner reviews and if you like no-frills machines that deliver then this one is worth looking at. Consumer ratings are excellent and the vacuum is extremely lightweight, easy to maneuver, and it comes with a very long industrial power cord. We’re not sure how much longer we will see this unit on the market however, as it can no longer be found on the Oreck website – but perhaps appearance on the website is not indicative of product continuity.
The Shark Navigator Lift-Away Rotator is yet another vacuum cleaner from Euro-Pro that is getting great consumer reviews - other popular Euro-Pro vacuums include the Shark Navigator and the Shark Lift-Away. The Shark Rotator is an upright, a canister and it also has a portable component. In addition, it has powerful suction, a brushbar with on/off controls, several useful tools, and a 5 year warranty. Criticisms of the machine are limited to secondary concerns such as the average fit and finish and headlights that only provide moderate illumination.
Should you go bagged or bagless? This is a popular question because there are many vacuums of both types on the market. Most residential vacuum cleaners sold in the USA today are of the bagless variety but bagged machines still sell well and have a special place in the heart of many homeowners.
