Product Description

Equipped with a powerful yet quiet 12 amp motor, this upright vacuum cleaner provides exceptional cleaning results and improved indoor air quality. The unit automatically adjusts to the proper setting for just about any carpet height, while its HEPA filtration system captures 99.97-percent of dust, allergens, and small particles, so only clean air gets expelled into the home. The vacuum's motor-protection system channels dust and dirt particles directly into the vacuum bag, promoting long life and more efficient cleaning for the fan and motor. Quickdraw tools rest in a side holster on the vacuum, ready for immediate use. The included stretch hose, two standard wands, dusting brush, and crevice tool ensure fast, powerful, above-floor cleaning. Connect the dusting brush or crevice tool to the vacuum's 12-1/2-foot attachment for easier access to hard-to-reach spots. Other highlights include an ergonomic handle, a foot-step handle release, a headlight, a 15-inch cleaning path, an integrated carrying handle, and a 24-foot power cord. A single touch activates the cord-rewind mechanism, making storage easy and convenient. The vacuum cleaner measures approximately 12-1/2 by 15 by 44-1/2 inches and carries a one-year limited warranty.

The sleek-looking vacuum cleaner provides a 15-inch cleaning path for covering more area in less time and automatic carpet-height adjustment, which adjusts to the correct height for everything from berber to shag.

I was shopping for a vacuum lately and see this on sale at Fry for $39 !!(refurbished? didn't say but I know Fry is kind of sneaky)
I thought it was used or floor model but store clark told me they have 4 in stock and I can pick 1 that I like. I realize that contrary to the latest vaccum cleaners which are uniformly bagless this one still uses a bag but the price is just too good and I actually prefer an "oldfashioned" vaccum that uses a bag because a lot of reviews I read about bagless vaccum were complaining about how messy things can get when emptying them.

The setup was very simple -- I don't even need the manual. Out of box only 2,3 pieces need to be hooked to the main body and you are ready to go. The hoses and tubes are still in sealed bags and there was no sign of usage. if this is a refurbished machine then they did a very good job.

Pros: Very strong suction (the most important), coil rewind, a nice headlight, HEPA filter, VERY EASY to roll/move around( while it is not light it is certainly not heavy to me ), bags (easy to remove)

Cons: bags (costs $$ but ...) HEPA filter (it is a small size so I don't how long it can last)

** people complaining that it dosn't work on bare floor -- they need to use the attachment on bare floor, in my case it works fine

The initial impressions are pretty positive --> straight forward design and sturdy built. I realize that it dosn't have fancy colors and fancy shapes of parts but If you not buying it as part of your Art collection you should be fine.

P.S. you need to buy type U6 bags not the type U3 that are listed with the machine, U3 works but it is too small U6 fits the bag chamber

Verified Purchase
I'm glad to be back with Panasonic. I had a Panasonic vacuum that lasted at least fifteen years. Less than two years ago, in the process of blowing insulation into the walls, from the inside of the house, my beloved vacuum died. Needing one quick, I went to Consumer Reports, and, based on their recommendations, purchased an Eureka Boss. BIG MISTAKE! Pain to use, tired of getting hit in the leg with the hose, when not in use. When you needed to use the hose, you had to stop what you were doing, move the dial -- hose -- then move the dial back to vacuum regular. Tools falling off. You get the picture. Hated to have to vacuum!

Even though I take good care of my things (especially now a days, when nothing seems to last), the Boss broke in two, less than two years later. So, I came back to Panasonic and am VERY HAPPY I DID.

The UG471 is GREAT!

I have two non-stop shedding Siberian Huskies. This vacuum works great picking up their hair on hard wood floors and on carpeting. The tools, especially the hose, stay on board, when not in use and there is a place for all the tools on the vacuum. Retractable cord -- lovely!

The only downfalls I would site -- needs a longer cord (but it seems every manufacturer has shorten them to 30 feet, or less. And a "grab" place on the front, for when you do not want to use the "power paw" when vacuuming stairs.

Excellent buy/value. Next up, a new Panasonic answering machine. Goodbye crappy Uniden (another terrible Consumer Reports recommendation!).

My experience with Panasonic vacuums began approx 15 yrs ago, when I worked for a retailer who sold them. I remember being impressed that I never had a Panasonic return, however there were many vacuum returns from other brands. I bought my first Panasonic with my employee discount, and I will confess I won't buy another brand. I had others given to me [before I bought one], and have used others which were extremely inferior by comparison.

PROS: (In order of importance to me):
-Best suction of any vacuum I've ever used; if it decreases then it means your bag is full
-The CORD REEL/rewind! The cord is reeled into a built-in chamber by simply pushing a lever with your toe.
-You can save money and get inexpensive generic bags (without HEPA filter) for about $2/bag (12 for $24)
-Panasonic is the highest recommended brand by both of my local vacuum shop chains
-Easy to use out of the box; belt is easy to replace when needed, as are the bags
-Color of the unit itself is relatively neutral (brick red)
-The light is bright and very functional
-Easy to locate a clog due to the hatch that opens on the back (eg the occasional sock from beneath the sofa)
-This model requires bags (imo this is better; you have to take bagless ones in for cleaning by a professional)

-HEPA bags are costly type U6 (about 3/$10); I used my left-over U3 bags which also worked (they are w/o HEPA)
-Bare floor use is limited. I do use it occasionally, but it could be disappointing if you bought it for this use. (IMO you need to get a separate bare floor vac; look at the Hoover Flair for about $40; this is what I use when I have a big job on my bare floors.
