A Great Compact & Lightweight Upright Vacuum for the Price
on October 5, 2005
The Eureka Superlite Widetrack vacuum is a fantastic little vacuum cleaner. Requiring no vacuum cleaner bags, the dirt and debris that it collects is stored in a plastic bin that is easily removable so that you can easily dump its contents into a wastebasket. With the telescoping handle that is released by a small pushbutton on the back, the Eureka Superlite Widetrack can be easily stored in a closet while taking up very little space. The power switch allows you to just use the vacuum motor alone or in combination with a rotating beater-bar brush at the bottom. The rotating brush comes in very handy for cleaning carpets, but isn't needed when vacuuming hardwood or tiled floors. I really like using the Eureka Superlite Widetrack for vacuuming carpeted stairs: instead of having to lug a heavy-duty upright or canister vacuum with an opening too large for each staircase step, I just use the Eureka Superlite Widetrack since it's lightweight and because its opening and rotating brush match the size of each staircase step better. If I just want to do a quick vacuuming, the Eureka Superlite Widetrack is ideal as it can clean up short pine needles, dried leaves, dirt, hair and other miscellaneous bits of debris. (This comes in very handy with two dogs going in and out of the house and tracking in dead plant matter and dirt from the yard.) Granted, the Eureka Superlite Widetrack isn't as powerful as a heavy-duty upright or canister vacuum cleaner, it was never meant to replace either. Instead, this handy little vacuum complements the use of a heavy-duty one when you don't really need that much cleaning power; but if you live in a small apartment or condo and don't have much storage space, the Eureka Superlite Widetrack you can still use it as your primary vacuum cleaner.
Overall, for ease of use, compact size and great cleaning ability, I rate the Eureka Superlite Widetrack vacuum cleaner with a resounding 5 out of 5 stars and highly recommend it to everyone.
