Product description

Product Description

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.

Let's face it. Most vacuums just don't cut it when it comes to really cleaning a home or office. Pesky pet hair embeds deeper in carpet than traditional vacuums go; bits and pieces of tracked-in dirt and debris hunker down under floor trim just out of reach of the latest brush innovations, rendering us to the silliness of handpicking behind that expensive vacuum, filling our pockets with lint, and wondering--who's really the boss? Troubles like these made the folks at Eureka get down and dirty and, ultimately, design the Boss Smart-Vac Upright Vacuum.

Offering powerful performance for everyday household cleaning, the Eureka Boss is the solution for people who insist on having a truly clean home. The Boss's Direct Air Control System features an air selector switch that lets you direct all suction either deep into the carpet or to the hose for easy above-the-floor cleaning.

The Power Paw brush makes it easy to clean stairs and upholstery, and even claws up embedded pet hair, so Fido can spend more time inside. The motorized brush lets you go from carpet to bare-floor cleaning with the flick of a switch. The Boss Smart-Vac is powered by a beefy, 12-amp motor that provides plenty of suction power for deep-cleaning carpets, and leaves nothing behind on hard floors.

Captures Dirt on More Surfaces

Pretty smart, right? Well, here's the really smart part. The Boss Smart-Vac isn't just the best household carpet- and floor-cleaning vacuum on the market; it's also equipped with a unique, sealed, HEPA filtration system that captures 99.97 percent of dust, pollen, allergens, and bacteria. So, vacuuming the house doesn't mean you have to dust afterward, or sneeze while you're doing it. Cleaner carpets and cleaner indoor air at the same time.

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. A handy stretch hose extends to five times its original length for reaching around furniture and sucking the cobwebs off the ceiling. And, a 30-foot cord won't leave you coming up short. The bare floor brush is designed to smoothly glide across wood and tile floors while picking up more dust and debris in corners and along baseboards than any other model. One extra Type-R belt and one bonus bag come included. The vacuum cleaner measures 12 by 15 by 44 inches and carries a one-year limited warranty.

Easy Cleaning Steps

1. For bare floor cleaning, push brush roll control lever firmly to lock in "bare floor" setting to stop brush roll.
2. Turn height adjustment knob to bare floor position.
3. If brush roll still rotates, control lever is not engaged properly.
4. Loosen hose end from back of vacuum.
5. Place tool on end of wand or hose.

Getting the Best Results

• This vacuum cleaner creates suction and contains a revolving brush roll. Keep hair, loose clothing, fingers, and all parts of body away from openings and moving parts.

• Do not place vacuum cleaner on furniture or stairs as the brush roll may cause damage. Use extra care when cleaning on stairs. Place vacuum cleaner on floor with the handle in storage position while using attachments.

• Do not use without dust bag, motor filter and HEPA filter in place.

• Remove hair and threads from brush roll periodically.

• This vacuum cleaner has a special thermostat that protects the vacuum in case of motor overheating. If the vacuum suddenly shuts off, push the power switch to off and unplug the vacuum. Check the vacuum for a possible source of overheating such as a full dust bag, blocked hose, clogged tubes or clogged filter. If these conditions are found, fix them and wait at least 30 minutes before attempting to use the vacuum. After the 30 minute period, plug the vacuum back in and turn on the switch.
