JUST PUBLISHED - Our 2013 picks for the Best Lightweight Vacuums.
The Eureka AirSpeed ONE (AS2013A) is inexpensive and rather cheaply made but it has tons of suction. This is a bagless upright where compromises have clearly been made in an effort to offer a unit that can be found online (at some retailers) for as low as $55. The power cord is short, the fit and finish isn’t great and the dust canister is small. However the unit is very lightweight and consumers report that the suction is rather astounding.
The Shark Rocket is a relatively new vacuum cleaner and is somewhere between a stick vac and an upright. It is similar to the Dyson stick vacs, like the DC44, except the Dysons are smaller, lighter and cordless while the Rocket has a power cord. Dysons are also more expensive. Consumer ratings are fairly good for the Rocket but not stellar. Owners like that the machine has strong suction, is fairly maneuverable, and is effective at dealing with pet hair. But it is a bit top heavy and can be hard on the wrist.
The Bissell Big Green Deep Cleaning Machine is a rare animal - it is a carpet cleaner with absolutely top-notch consumer ratings. Many carpet cleaners turn out to be a frustrating experience for owners and we have never before reviewed one that generated an average consumer score in the 90’s. The Big Green scored a staggering 97.1 out of 100 and owners report that it does a fantastic job of cleaning carpet and upholstery. It is also very easy and straightforward to use. On the downside, the Big Green is a bit heavy and it doesn’t come cheap.
We’ve put together some useful vacuum cleaner troubleshooting tips that should help you fix some of the more common problems you may run into. But remember - before performing any maintenance please turn the vacuum off AND unplug it!
This is a no-frills upright vacuum designed to clean large areas of both carpet and bare floors. It is a commercial unit but is frequently used by owners for residential cleaning as well. It is very lightweight and quite powerful. In addition the U2000R-1 has an ”industrial” length 40 foot power cord, but like many commercial machines it is loud. Most owners feel the vacuum provides good value for your dollar.
The Hoover UH72450 generally retails for between $180 and $230 so it is not at a particularly low price point. Consumer ratings are good but not stellar. The vacuum generates powerful suction, has HEPA filtration, is very maneuverable, includes a turbo tool and carries a lengthy 5-year warranty. But the lack of height adjustment creates some problems for folks with thicker carpet and area rugs.
The Bissell Zing bagged canister vacuum (model 4122) is a fairly simple machine and it doesn’t come with a lot of frills and features. It is also very inexpensive at around $50. Owners are giving it great reviews and feel that it is lightweight, maneuverable and easy to store. It is a good fit for a smaller home or apartment but it performs better on bare floors than carpet.
Let’s cut to the chase. The Miele S6270 Quartz is a great vacuum IF you have lots of bare floors to clean and a few area rugs or a small amount of low pile carpet. It is not the best machine for a home or apartment with lots of carpet - especially medium to high pile carpet. The floor tool has no brushbar which limits its performance on deeper carpet. Aside from this the Quartz is lightweight, very quiet and powerful. It also has effective filtration, variable suction and is well built.
