This bag less vacuum features a dust cup that quickly and easily empties without a mess. The dust cup is installed with a standard filter. Its 2-in-1 design converts from a stick-style vacuum to a hand vacuum for use above the floor, on upholstery, countertops and more.

Other features include 2 amps of power, a 15-foot cord length, 8-1/2-inch cleaning path, and a telescoping handle. The unit measures 9 by 5-1/2 by 27 inches and is backed by a 1-year limited warranty. This vacuum is formally known as the Boss®.

Ideal for people who need to reduce allergens in the home

Plus, the Boss comes loaded with user-friendly features to take the frustration out of vacuuming. A wide 15-inch cleaning path covers a lot of ground quickly before company comes. In addition, the exclusive dust trap system captures debris and dust in three stages.


Getting the Best Results

• Use this lightweight vacuum cleaner for quick and easy cleaning. Move the floor nozzle over any floor covering to quickly clean dirt, lint or threads.

• To keep the cleaner operating at top efficiency empty the dust cup and clean the dust cup filter after each use.

• For storage, wrap the cord around the cord hooks on the top and bottom of the cleaner and snap in place.

Easy Cleaning Tips

  1. Pull the telescopic handle to its maximum length and release the latch so that the handle locks firmly in place.

  2. For above floor cleaning, remove the floor nozzle if it is attached.

  3. If desired, attach the crevice tool to the base of the cleaner.

  4. To re-install the dust cup, after emptying it periodically, fit the dust cup and the motor unit back together and push firmly until latch clicks into place.

  5. To clean the filter shake and brush the dust and dirt. If desired, launder the filter by hand under warm water using a mild detergent. Air dry thoroughly before returning to use.

When I opened the box to this Eureka Lightweight Easy Clean Upright Vacuum yesterday, I briefly thought I had purchased a toy-- the vacuum is feather light, the yellow is that of Tonka truck and the size of this machine is comparable to a child's baseball bat. After an electrical current and igniting the power button, I was so very satisfied to discover that this was no Easy-Bake Oven and it could probably inhale a toddler if I tried.

As soon as I unboxed the product I took to it to my living room floor and the two weeks build up of shedding dog, sloppy-eating residents (not myself, but my fiancé) and cat-tracked litter. After about one minute purifying a 5 foot square area, I took a peak into the machines dust cup/ filter compartment. This is where things got good (depending upon how you view the circumstance).

Viewpoint 1: Both the filter and compartment space were full of filth, which was very rewarding and proved to me the vacuum suction was legitimate and could pull up the accumulated food crumbs, dirt, and dog hair. DISCLAIMER: My dog has short hair, I do not know if it could handle a long-haired dog's alopecia.

Viewpoint 2: After cleaning this small area of carpet, dirt and hair heavily coated the filter. The area I was cleaning looked only slightly messy to the naked eye, so I'm lead to believe that frequent filtering and emptying will be necessary even on a daily cleansing basis. I will probably have to do this a few times per room, which is fine with me because it at least proves the grime is gone.

-----Other Features to consider-----

This was my first and only experience thus far, so I can't say much about longevity.

My house is mostly hard floors, so with 2 long-haired dogs and a cat there is hair everywhere if you don't clean it up every day or two. I bought another stick vac (Dirt Devil Power Stick) for $45 but it didn't convert to a handheld for doing corners and it was very powerful but the equally powerful exhaust just blew the pet hair everywhere. This little $20 vacuum is just perfect though. It's not a powerhouse but it has plenty of suction to pick up pet hair and most everything on the hard floors. The option of using it like a dustbuster is great for hard to reach areas and it's small enough and light enough to hang just about anywhere. Great product for the price.

I bought the Boss stick vacuum and the Featherweight vacuum because they were both priced the same and I couldn't decide between them. The Featherweight model had a lot of rave reviews about it but, having bought and used both, I think the Boss vacuum is SO MUCH better! The Boss's handle telescopes back into the unit; the Featherweight detaches. The Boss vacuum has more pick-up ability. The floor attachment of the Featherweight, when used on short carpet,lifts up on the backstroke; the Boss model does not. I put the Boss model in our R.V. to do quick pick-ups while on our trips (we bring our cats and needed a vacuum to get up cat litter as well as dirt)what a lifesaver!!! I kept the Featherweight in our house to do stairs and quick small clean-up jobs on our tile floor but, I wish it was a Boss model instead then I'd be really happy!!!!

Got this based on the reviews. This is a handy little vacuum for my Kindergarten classroom. It's not heavy duty---more like a dustbuster with more attachments and an extendable handle. Works great for quick clean-ups and I love having the crevice tool.

I read with interest, many of the positive as well as negative reviews for this item. My sentiments are very much positive. I have tile and wood floors and on first use (today this item arrived from Amazon),this did an excellent job...and I mean EXCELLENT!! picking up sand from the roads (lots of snow here in MA) and dust as well as cat hair. Interestingly, I swept the floor first with a standard broom, then tried the Eureka. Somehow it found a LOT of cat hair, dust and sand that my sweeping missed. This is much easier and much more efficient than the old broom and dust pan approach.

Now to address some of the negative comments:

"It looks like a Tonka truck." does...but who are you trying to impress with your electric floor sweeper? Is Martha Stewart coming for an inspection?

"It has little sucking power." WRONG! It works great. The only thing that it could not get totally clean of sand is the DEEPLY grooved mat we have at the door to trap sand. Heck, my regular vacuum does that...but what's the big deal with bending over, picking up the mat, shaking it and then using the Eureka (unless you're physically unable to do so which I understand).

"It's noisy." It is...the motor is reasonably powerful and naturally makes noise. The wheels do "click" a bit on the tiles when I hit the grout lines and to make sure there would be no scratching on my wood floors (which I don't think is a problem anyway), I put some cloth tape around the wheels. 2 non-problems solved.

The cord is too short. Ever hear of an extension cord?

"The canister fills too quickly." Try vacuuming a little more often...more vacuuming...less accumulated brain implant needed to figure THAT out!

"Blows dust out when in use". Nope. Not mine.
