DESIGNED FOR CARPETS AND HARD FLOORSThe AIRBELT D4 is a powerful, yet ultra-quiet, canister vacuum, which features three on-board attachments, an unmatched 40-foot cord and 50-foot cleaning radius, rubber-coated wheels to protect floor surfaces, a durable telescopic tube with quick-release connections, and a full bag or clog indicator. Two sizes of its commercial- quality power head are available to deep clean carpets, and a parquet brush is included for cleaning hard floors. An ergonomically designed handle, which also has a suction adjustment switch, provides user comfort and effortless control of the power head’s 180° steering ability. The D4‘s tapered hose, along with its 320° rotating canister connection, improves airflow and provides smooth maneuverability, and its soft bumper protects the vacuum, furniture and walls from scuffs and scratches.
Two Power Head Widths, Amazing Steering Ability and Easy Brush Roller Removal – The ET-1 power head comes standard with the black and white colored machines, but when purchasing a red colored machine, there are two power head choices: the ET-1 (12-inch width) and the ET-2 (15-inch width). Both power heads have manual, four-level brush height adjustment, they effectively clean both carpets and hard floors and offer manual brush shut off, for use on delicate rugs or other floor types that require straight-suction cleaning. Their amazing steering ability provides 180° maneuverability, and they have easy brush roller removal, convenient clog access doors, automatic shut off for brush obstructions, and a light that indicates when brush height is set too high for optimal cleaning or when the brush roller should be replaced due to reaching maximum bristle wear.
A Flat-to-the-floor 3 1/2-inch Profile – The power head's low profile makes cleaning under furniture and beds easy!
A Huge 1.5-gallon Filter Bag – The large-capacity filter bag is convenient and economical because fewer bag changes are needed. An indicator window turns orange when the filter bag should be replaced, and closing its built-in hygiene cap prevents dust from escaping during bag removal or disposal.
A Durable, Rotating Suction-hose Connection – A brilliantly designed hose-to-canister connection allows 320° rotation of the suction hose, providing easier user movement and machine maneuverability.
LED Suction-power Indicator – This technology actually makes it possible for the user to optically monitor the vacuum’s suction power. When using lower power settings, the LED light rotates slowly. When using higher power settings, the light rotates more quickly. When the power is set to standby mode, the light slowly blinks back and forth, left to right.
Patented AIRBELT Bumper – The D4’s soft, textile-covered foam bumper protects furniture, walls and the vacuum itself from incurring scratches and scuffs during use. The bumper also diffuses exhaust air, which contributes to its ultra-quiet performance.
Four Castors with Rubber-coated Wheels, Mounted on Bearings and Steel Axles – The superb castor-wheels glide easily and gently over all floor types, providing exceptional maneuverability and protection of floor surfaces.
Convenient Parking and Storage Aids – After the work is done, the suction hose, telescopic tube and the hard floor parquet brush can be firmly stored on the canister’s underside or backside housing.
Adjustable Suction Switch on the Handle – The suction power of the AIRBELT D4 can be conveniently adjusted on the hose handle; therefore, upholstery can be cleaned with stronger suction, yet curtains can be gently vacuumed as well.
Three Full-size, On-board Accessory Tools, plus a Parquet Brush – For special cleaning tasks, a crevice tool, an upholstery nozzle and a dusting brush are integrated into the canister body, so they are on-board, easy to remove and ready for use at all times. Also, many optional attachments are available. All AIRBELT D4 models come with a parquet brush that was specifically designed for cleaning hard floors.
Full-size Canister Vacuum – The AIRBELT D4 is a full-size canister vacuum, which means it is a larger and more powerful machine that offers three full-size attachments, a huge 1.5-gallon filter bag, and an extra-long power cord.
Personalized Vacuums – The D4’s AIRBELT bumper can be personalized with any one of eight colorful textile covers.
AIRBELT D4’S FILTRATION SYSTEM:Bags are Better! Top-fill, three and four-layer bags are an integral part of SEBO’s filtration system because they hold virtually all dirt captured by the vacuum, which improves the effectiveness and useful life of the microfilters. They also ensure continuously strong suction because dirt enters from the top, deposits at the bottom, accumulates upward, and air exits through the sides, which allows unimpeded airflow as they fill to capacity. And they can be sealed when full, so no dust can escape into the air during bag removal and disposal.
Pre-motor Filters – Pre-motor filters clean suction air after it passes through the filter bag, but before it passes over the vacuum motor. Cooling the motor with clean air is important because this increases useful life expectancy.
S-class Exhaust Microfilters – S-class Exhaust Microfilters (S =“Schwebstoff” = airborne particles) are made from electrostatically charged micro-fiber material, which attracts and captures dust particles from the airflow of the vacuum after it passes over the motor to cool it. This means that exhaust air is cleaned to the highest level. The S-class Standard requires filters to absorb greater than 99.9% of particles down to 0.3 microns in diameter. For comparison, 100 microns is the diameter of a human hair. Their advantages are a relatively open texture that allows smoother airflow for better suction performance, a longer life expectancy, and they cost less than HEPA filters.
SEBO STANDARD FEATURES:Designed and Manufactured in Germany – Legendary quality, reliability and performance make SEBO vacuums the first choice of cleaning professionals throughout the world.
Tightly Sealed Vacuums Ensure Effective Filtration – Dirty air, which flows through a vacuum, can only be filtered completely if it does not escape into the room through seams or seals in the machine. This is why all SEBO vacuums have tight seals throughout.
Many vacuum companies with high-filtration claims are actually quoting specifications made by the manufacturer of the filter material, as measured in the laboratory, not the filtration effectiveness of the vacuum itself while operating. Whether or not dirty air can escape through leaks in the body of the machine is not considered. The filtration effectiveness of SEBO vacuums is tested while they operate.
Save Money! SEBO Vacuums Last for Years and Extend Carpet Life! – If properly maintained, SEBO vacuums save ordinary residential users hundreds of dollars by providing excellent performance for ten to fifteen years or more, and their deep-cleaning power-brush technology extends the life of carpets. Typical vacuums perform poorly, even when new, and usually do not last beyond two years. So six or seven “disposable vacuums” must be purchased during the average life expectancy of just one SEBO machine.
Five-year Warranty Coverage – All SEBO models include a five-year warranty on the motor and all non-wear parts and a five-year warranty on labor charges.
SEBO Microfilters Ensure Continuously Strong Suction Performance – They are also long lasting, inexpensive and easy to change in seconds.
Changing Bags is Easy and Clean – SEBO filter bags can be changed in just a few seconds, and a cap keeps dust sealed inside during removal and disposal.
Effective Pet Hair Removal – All SEBO vacuums easily remove pet hair!

We have had this vacuum for 2 years now of regular use. My wife and I both love it. It was a tough choice between Miele and SEBO but we read too many reports of poor customer service and warranty issue with Miele in recent years. Unfortunately, our cord reel had problems in the first week of use. The cord reel tangled internally on itself, resulting in jamming. We almost returned the vacuum, but first contacted SEBO U.S. via the phone (a person actually answered). They sent a new, redesigned cord reel with replacement instructions. I believe we could have shipped the whole vacuum to them for repair, but I preferred to do the replacement myself since we live in Puerto Rico and shipping would be resource heavy. I'm a little disappointed that the cord reel broke, but I am happy I chose SEBO because they provided great customer service and warranty support. Oh yeah, and the vacuum is awesome!
Regarding other reviews...
- "The hose does not swivel indefinitely. It is limited to about 320 degrees." This is not a big deal for us, especially since I know there are no electrical contacts at this joint that will wear out; rather it is hard wired and therefore cannot swivel indefinitely.
- "The vacuum will not roll over its own cord." Ours rolls over it's own cord just fine. It doesn't come with off-road tires, so it requires a little tug.
- "The vacuum rolls all over the place and bumps into things." Yeah, it has nice castors; they work well.
I'm a fan.
My previous Wal-Mart purchase of a vacuum (Dirt Devil) lasted just over 3 years, often fraught with unexplainable clogs, difficult to clean brush rollers, nasty bin emptying, you name it. After it died recently I said to myself “I’m not paying 20 dollars to fix a five dollar vacuum”. I did some research and came across the Reddit AMA about vacuums and found out how wrong I was about the vacuum quality hierarchy.
With the information I discovered I pulled the trigger on the SEBO. I sometimes think “maybe I should have gotten the Miele”? I guess I’ll never know, that being said I am very happy with this vacuum so far. It’s surpassed my expectation thus far. As the cost is so high, as compared to a Wal-Mart vacuum, I decided against a pro vs con review and will talk about each of the major components individually. Let’s get started.
Overall the look is ok, this is of course a personal choice, but in my mind a vacuum lives in the closet and then is brought out to clean carpets. So long as it does that I am happy, it could be a rectangle for all I care!..lol. I guess the only time design is important is when it interferes with the function of the unit. I don’t really like the black glossy finish, it looks nice for sure but it will show dust pretty easily and the hose rubbing the unit will eventually cause scratches.
Cord Retractor and Cord:
The cord retractor seems to work ok; I haven’t had problems retracting the cord so far with the exception on one time where it didn’t rewind all the way. I just pulled it back out a bit and it retracted fully. I’ll report back later on how it holds up.
Another review on here mentions the cords being a small gauge wire. I happen to agree; this probably was done to keep the side of the retractor small. That being said make sure you pull the cord out on small increments and don’t just pull the cord across the room to rewind. The manual mentioned pulling out 20 feet of cord before using the unit. No doubt this is to help prevent heat buildup.
Works as designed, although I’d be wary to slamming your foot down on it to turn it on. Be gentle!
Bag Compartment and Filters:
The lid for the filter bag compartment has a catch to hold it open. I’m unsure how this will hold up over a decade or two. In the attached video you can see what I’m talking about. The latch holds the lid closed tightly and has a nice return spring action. I put my brightest headlamp in the bag compartment to see if I could detect any light leakage, no light was seen. Not a scientific test but still a pretty good one. On most videos it’s not obvious how the premotor filter is held in. After looking at it it’s well secured and should present no problems. I’ve attached an image of how it’s attached so you can see for yourself.
The filter bags are easy to change and the ultra-bags seem to filter ok. There is a small amount of dust in the bag compartment after a couple of days of use but nothing too serious. The mounting point for the filter bags seems plenty sturdy and should present no problems over time.
The compartment for the exhaust filter is easy to open and has a nice big seal on it. A few black specks in here but from what I understand these are from the motor.
Nothing really to say about these except to say that they are sturdy. I mainly use the crevice tool and it does its job perfectly. The tool storage at the back of the machine holds the tools firmly.
Hose and Handle Assembly:
This hose could pull double duty as a fire hose! An exaggeration to be sure but it is massive and should hold up pretty well so long as you don’t try to jump rope with it or tie it in knots. I’ve heard all kinds of theories about the tapered hose but it seems to me that the taper will help prevent clogs. Both ends of the hose attach firmly with a nice ‘click’. The wire at the top is sturdy and should last quite a while as long as you don’t go out of your way to pull on it.
The handle is comfortable for me and I’ve had no problems with the suctions level buttons. Pressing minus key several times will lower the suction level and eventually shut off the machine. The canister will still be on, pressing the plus sign will turn the motor back on the lowest level and eventually the highest level.
Powerhead and Wand
The wand is metal and plastic. The plastic part of the wand feels pretty substantial and I couldn’t detect any deflection during use. Extending the wand was easy and again made a satisfying ‘click’ when locked. Adjusting was as easy as pushing the button and extending or retracting as required. Pictures of all the different adjustment buttons are attached.
The powerhead is glorious! After using it over my raggedy, matted down carpet the pile was standing at attention waiting for instructions, looks so much better. I love the ability to remove and clean the brush roller without doing surgery. Easy to remove and easy to reinsert. On the highest suction level the canister is quieter than any other vacuum I’ve used and the powerhead is quiet as well. You can carry on a conversation with someone across the room without yelling.
The height adjustment worked as you might expect and the foot mount for the handle does as well. The one minus for the powerhead is the ridiculous switch! It’s almost like the ‘pump up to turn on’ breakers from Jurassic park. No satisfying ‘click’ here, just turn the machine on to see if the brush roller is on or not.
Sorry not going to play the suction contest or do crazy parlor tricks to convince you. For my carpet and as compared to the previous vacuum I had it’s amazing. Most importantly I feel that my carpet is clean and that the dust is well contained in the machine.
Now that I’ve rambled on for over a thousand words, hopefully I’ve brought something to the table that was unknown to you. Hopefully this review will help you make a decision on whether or not to purchase this vacuum. Would I buy this again…tough call. I think the real question is “Am I happy enough with the SEBO to forgo searching for something that may or may not be better”? I think the answer to that question is yes.
