MC-CG917 Canister Vacuum Cleaner with OptiFlow Technology
Taking the Work out of Housework
Clean with ease using this MC-CG917 "bag" canister vacuum cleaner by Panasonic. Equipped with a powerful 12 amp system, the vacuum cleaner can handle everything from a quick once over before company arrives to a more detailed weekend or spring clean.
Designed for Bare Floors and Carpets
The vacuum cleaner accommodates both bare-floor surfaces and carpets beautifully. Simply flip the switch on the handle to "floor", which turns on just the canister motor, or to "carpet", which turns on both the canister motor and the power-nozzle motor. There's also four-position height adjustment depending on the height of the carpet.
On-Board Tools for Detailed Cleaning
A quick-release pedal frees the telescopic aluminum wand from the power nozzle, while the included on-board accessories allow for more tailored cleaning. Choose the floor brush for gentle cleaning of hardwoods; the dusting and upholstery brush for tabletops and furniture; the crevice tool to get in between couch cushions; and the pet hair air turbine to quickly remove pet hair from stairs and upholstery.
OptiFlow Technology and HEPA Media Filter
The MC-CG917 canister vacuum cleaner also features OptiFlow technology, which helps ensure a steady volume of airflow through the dust bag, even as it fills up with dirt and debris. The vacuum cleaner's HEPA media filter, which sits behind the dust bag, captures airborne allergens, while its removable caddy makes changing the dust bag a snap.
A true household companion, the MC-CG917 canister vacuum cleaner makes it easy to achieve a thorough clean throughout your home.
Powerful 12 Amp System
12 amp system offers powerful cleaning performance.
A revolutionary concept in vacuum airflow technology, OptiFlow technology helps maintain a consistent volume of airflow through the dust bag, even as it becomes full.

Air Turbine Brush

EZ Bare-Floor Option
A convenient switch on the handle shuts off the agitator for safe bare-floor cleaning.
Four-Position Carpet Height Adjustment
Adjust the setting to one of four positions for just about any carpet height.
14-Inch Cleaning Path
A 14-inch wide nozzle lets you clean larger areas in less time.
On/Off Power Switch On Handle
A convenient switch on the handle turns the vacuum on and off.
360-Degree Hose Swivel
The hose connection features a nimble swivel device that lets you clean in any direction without the hose getting twisted.
Automatic Cord Reel
A single touch activates the cord rewind mechanism making storage easy and convenient.
Ergonomic, closed-loop handle reduces fatigue.
