The BOSS SMART VAC captures dirt other cleaners don't and on more surfaces. This model has an Eureka patented SEALED HEPA system . A system that filters all the fine dirt through the HEPA filter for cleaner indoor air. It comes complete with on-board tools and a Power Paw Turbo that's designed for vertical cleaning of stairs and upholstery. When the unit is on in an upright position it is designed for the brushroll not to spin. This setup is designed to protect the consumer's carpet. It is possible to re-position the tab that switches from barefloors to carpets in the "upright position". The tab is intended to move only when the unit is moved out of its upright position.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
And I called Eureka before I returned it to make sure I wasn't getting defective ones and they said that's how they do it now! They tried to tell me it was a safety feature to stop the brushes and I told them that was SO much bull because I've had 3 others over the last 9 years that have always stopped when you placed it upright and then it simply resumes. They had to admit it was a horrible new design and they would report it to development? Meanwhile they have ruined their reputation and they need to look up the bad reviews about this on Amazon. Or simply ask women who vacuum A LOT (I have several cats and two large German Shepherds that shed horribly) if this was a good idea before they did this! If you use this to vacuum bare floors then this won't bother you, but this is mainly a vacuum for carpet!
You can tell I'm really disappointed that after all these years and 4 of these that I have to start researching and find another that I will like as much as I have like these over the years because nothing before sucked up stuff as strong as this and I love love bagged vacuums because I cannot stand to have dust in the air with bagless, I hate them. The attachments are so convenient!
People who complain about the hose stretching out over time are correct, but what they must not seem to realize is that when it does, just start placing it through the top loop in the handle and then down, it works and holds it perfectly.
Oh well, the re-engaging is a huge deal breaker for me since I vacuum carpet 99% of the time and cannot stand constantly bending all the way down to the floor and pressing that hard button to start vacuuming again. And since I have the 3 that stop and start again, it makes me more upset they changed this.
UPDATE: I was on the last day to send it back (it would be the 2nd one I was going to send back) because I can NOT stand having to bend down to switch to carpet every single time, So for one last time I tried to see if I could make it do what my others had done (roller brush stops when standing up and then starts again when you start vacuuming). I started flipping that brush roll/bare floors switch back and forth a 1000 times over and over really quick thinking I might can just break it and make it stay on carpet , LOL. And guess what ! I didn't break it, but it now will stop when I stand it up and will start back to vacuuming carpets again when I let the handle down! But ONLY 50% of time, but still way better than every single time.
Next, just as before, the toggle that switches back and forth to activate/deactivate the beater bar so you can go back and forth from carpet to bare floor stops working. Fortunately it stopped working in the ON position so I can vacuum my carpet but I have to be careful on bare floors because when the beater bar is on, it can scratch the wood. There is a rubber hose that connects to a plastic wand for the attachments. The rubber hose rips after a month or so. I was really careful with that one, and it still ripped. Out comes the duct tape..... I keep buying this sucker because you can go back and forth from floor to attachments with the twist of a knob. But this is my last one. I could have bought a Cadillac vacuum cleaner for the money I have spent on this model. It doesn't matter how careful you are with it. It still breaks down all over the place. Sucky, sucky, sucky!
**Update to the below review** It is two years later and my vacuum cleaner is still working great and I still love it! The power paw attachment is great for vacuuming the stairs - we have two sets and it is easier to use the power paw than balance my canister vac on the stairs.
My 12 yr old Sharp upright gave up the ghost so I needed a new upright for upstairs. I read a lot of reviews here and at e-pinions and decided on this Eureka. First I will say it is very important to read all of the manual, because it actually addresses some of the issues people have with this vacuum, such as: (1) this machine is no heavier than my old one, but people complain it is heavy and hard to maneuver - the maneuverability and "heaviness" of it are greatly improved if one selects the proper brush height. Set it too low and yes, you will be struggling to pull this vacuum back toward you. The first time I used it OMG - it was quite a workout. I figured when I vacuumed I would count that as my upper body workout! Then I read the manual and duh! I raised the brush height one notch and what a difference. It's not light as a feather, but much better. (2) people complain that the brush roll stop (hard floor) switch is hard to move. The manual says it will be easier to move if the machine is on, the handle is released and you rock the machine back so there is no weight on the front wheels. It is hard if you try to move it otherwise. (3) the foot pedal for the handle release is pretty stiff, but if you find the "sweet spot" it's fine - just have to experiment with where to push. On my machine the hard part is getting the handle locked back up. I hope I don't have the belt breakage problems some people have had, but so far I'm pleased with its performance and it seems fairly sturdy to me. I had recently cleaned my carpets with Capture (a dry powder) and this new vac got up quite a bit of powder my old vac left behind. I loathe using tools on an upright thus I have a canister vac for that action - so I can't address the utility of that, but it looks way easier than on my old upright. So far I am happy with this vac, and I am a neat freak who likes her carpets to look perfectly clean! Hope this was helpful...
