The canister is SO easy to empty.
After taking it apart and putting it back together several times it never worked.
Very "nimble", easy to use and vacuums great.

--> (2/10/14: Check the bottom of this review for a couple of updates)
A quick summary: This unit cleans great! No problems with pet hair, edge suction is very good (much better than anything I've used previously), and the cleaning wand & hose setup is ingenious (though largely copied from Dyson's DC33). Dumping the dust bin is a snap, with a few less parts than Dyson, and is a relatively clean process. The pivoting handle may be a little bit gimmicky, but it does indeed cause the vacuum's head to turn towards the direction it's tilted.

I'll preface this review by noting I have the green Nimble, model 8605 sold at Lowe's, but the review I wrote for that item a couple of days ago seems to have disappeared into cyberspace. Oh well -- these are identical vacs, with the exception of the color and the extra attachment included with the green one. Apologies for the duplicate reviews.

A possible point of confusion on that difference between models, from the product website itself: Electrolux lists this gray model (8602) with a roller brush on/off switch (hardwood floor mode), while showing the green (8605) instead with the bonus hose attachment, as if the on/off brush control isn't included. Rest assured, the green vac has the brush on/off switch as well.

I came from a Sharp EC12TW, which was the Consumer magazine Reports' top pick some 14 years ago, largely due to its solid performance and "library quiet" operation. I can confirm the Nimble easily matches that low volume level -- not at all high pitched or noisy, especially compared to an Oreck XL Pro I brought home for a few days and quickly returned.

We researched just about every single vacuum out there before purchasing the Electrolux Nimble. We found it on sale at our local Target, so we picked it up for right around $250. While we were obviously tempted to purchase a Dyson, there were just too many negative reviews to justify spending almost double what we did on this vacuum. The first day we brought it home we ran the test where we vacuumed our carpet with our old vacuum and then with the Nimble. We live in a fairly small home, and had to empty the canister THREE times while vacuuming! I could not believe the hair, dust, dirt, everything that this vacuum picked up.
*Putting it together was beyond easy and took less than two minutes.
*The canister is SO easy to empty.
*It is what I would consider lightweight-I am currently 9 months pregnant and had no trouble lifting or pushing the vacuum.
*The washable HEPA filter. There's nothing more frustrating than spending money on a product only to find out that you'll have to continue spending more money for little things like filters. I love that we can just wash this one.
*The 5 year warranty is great for us as a young couple without tons of disposable income. We know our investment will be taken care of for several years.
*The attachments have worked well for us so far, I don't find the stair attachment hard to use at all, and the extendable hose is great.
*The 30 ft. power cord is very convenient.
*Glides easily and swivels around furniture with no problem.
*Doesn't lose suction, and makes fantastic vacuumed carpet lines.

*The base of the vacuum is kind of bulky, it doesn't really fit under our beds or furniture. Not really a huge inconvenience, but it would be nice if it was a little slimmer.
*As other reviewers have said, it's a little bit loud, but it's not an annoying vacuum sound, so I don't find it that bothersome.

Overall we are more than satisfied!

My husband and I purchased the Nimble at Best Buy and we thought it is an Electrolux so it would be great! My mother in law has an older and much more expensive canister and she just raves about it. Not having much carpet in our home(hardwood mostly) we couldn't justify the cost of the higher end vacuums. When we opened the box and tried it out on our 6x9 area rug the brush sensor came on immediately. After taking it apart and putting it back together several times it never worked. Thinking it was just a fluke we exchanged it the next day. The same thing happened but we got it to work by taking the guard on the bottom off and readjusting the roller, subsequently breaking one of the turn screws with very little pressure. I contacted CS at Electrolux and they said this was normal because it has such powerful suction and it will lift big rugs??? I again inquired if they thought this was an acceptable defect and asked for a second time about the screw and they said the parts were on back order until June (this was in May) no comment about the defect and the return was from Eureka(interesting). We continued to use it with minimal problems until the hose attachment broke off with ease while vacuuming. I brought it back 32 days after the initial purchase and sprang for a Dyson and couldn't be happier. It is WAY better on HW floors and is much better made. Sorry for my ranting but I was just so disappointed!! Hope this helps someone make an informed decision and avoid the hassle!

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
If you decide to buy this vacuum, please do yourself a favor and write down the serial and model numbers BEFORE you assemble the unit. They are located under the unit by the back wheels. Because of the picture diagram in the manual I didn't know that and ended up holding a fully assembled vacuum upside down to get to the numbers. I was a very unhappy consumer!

This vacuum unit has been a series of highs and lows for me. Maybe you can benefit from my problems and save yourself some bruises!

+ This vacuum (model EL8602 Type A) has wonderful suction. I ran this unit over a carpeted area that I had already vacuumed with another brand of cleaner and was appalled at how much more dog hair this one picked up. In fact, the suction is so strong that I had to discontinue using it on a small throw rug because I thought it was going to get sucked into the vacuum. Keep your Kitty Cat away from this machine!

+ The sound level for this machine is not nearly as high as my other machines. I could talk to my husband and I heard the phone ring while this machine was running.

+ Emptying the dirt cannister is a super easy thing to do, but be aware that the bottom will spring open as soon as you press that button. I emptied the cannister inside the first time and was rather dismayed at the cloud of dust that lingered. Thereafter I have taken the cannister to the garage and emptied it into a plastic bag.

+ I get very good cleaning on carpets, rugs, and bare floors. Switching from one type of floor surface to another is very easy.

- Sorry, this is not 'nimble', not for me. Maybe a tiny bit more maneuverable than other vacuums I own, but not enough to use that as a purchase point.
