Panasonic MC-CL945 Plush Pro Bagless Canister Vacuum Cleaner
Lightweight and easy to carry, this quiet, compact and powerful vacuum is the is the ideal cleaning system for every carpet, rug or hard floor. Plush Pro was designed to clean all home carpet styles, including soft plush. Soft plush carpeting can be the most challenging to clean with a traditional vacuum because the nozzle is drawn into the carpet, making it difficult to push and pull the vacuum across floor.
With Plush Pro, cleaning every type of carpet is effortless. Twin vents on the top of the nozzle open and close automatically to infuse additional airflow in thicker carpet surfaces and to break suction lock for easier vacuuming. A smart 'Zero Turning' radius design lets you easily maneuver the vacuum around furniture while an array of included on-board tools make whole-house cleaning a breeze. The Gliding Pet Brush removes clingy pet hair from a variety of surfaces without clogging.
A New Force for Clean
Powerful JefForce Technology, driven by a muscular but quiet 12-amp motor, separates dirt and debris from incoming air and forces it to the bottom of the dust cup, helping to keep the filter clean and prevent loss of suction. Plush Pro is a total cleaning system that delivers continuous, clog-free suction for more complete cleaning throughout the house.
100% Washable Dust Cup
The durable, washable dust cup eliminates the expense and hassle of vacuum bags. A simple push of a button opens the cup's bottom-drop panel to make dirt disposal quick, clean and easy. The system's pre-filter and primary filter can be easily removed and washed to help eliminate odors often created by the build-up of pet hair and other debris.
Clean Carpets More Efficiently with Air Infusion
From short-pile area rugs to the plushest wall-to-wall carpeting, the vacuum's power nozzle features Air Infusion technology to deep clean your carpet. As airflow is drawn into the nozzle, a powerful stream of air is channeled through the brush bar and carpet to loosen and remove dirt, dust and debris more efficiently. This continuous movement of air reduces the push and tug effort of vacuuming to make cleaning rugs easier, and more convenient. For hardwood, laminates and other bare floor surfaces, a convenient pedal on the power nozzle quickly lowers nozzle height for optimum cleaning power.
Remove Clingy Pet Hair
The included double-roller, pet-friendly Gliding Pet Brush grabs and removes stubborn, embedded pet hair without clogging. Perfect for stairs, upholstery, beds and car interiors.
The long-lasting HEPA media filter traps millions of micro particles and eliminates harmful allergens, irritants and pollutants.
Clean Nimbly with JetTurn Radius
The vacuum's short wheel base and large, quick-pivot rear wheels can make instant 360 degree turns to move and clean more nimbly around furniture and corners.
Tools on Board for Hard-to-Reach Places
Quick-draw tools on-board make it easy to clean hard-to-get places. A telescoping wand extends your reach, a handy crevice tool gets into narrow spaces and a soft dusting brush gently cleans lampshades, blinds and curtains. For added convenience, an automatic reel retracts the power cord with a single touch for quick, safe and easy storage.
Selectable Nozzle Height
A nozzle height selector lets you move from bare floors to carpets without missing a beat. Four carpet height positions and the steerable nozzle enable the MC-CL945 to clean every carpet, rug or hard-floor surface in your home.
Maximized air stream delivers excellent cleaning and significantly reduces push/pull effort on super-soft carpets which are a challenge to conventional vacuums. Powerful JETFORCE technology forces dirt and debris to the bottom of the dust cup helping to keep the filter clean and prevent loss of suction. "Zero Turning" radius design helps vacuum to maneuver easily around furniture. Crevice tool and dusting brush located conveniently on telescoping wand which extends for above floor cleaning. Air turbine pet tool for pet hair removal on multiple surfaces.

The Plush Pro nozzle excels in carpet cleaning, including plusher carpet. It’s heavy and self-propelled and is as good as an upright in vacuuming. It’s also does a great job with heavy rugs and carpeted stairs. Only, the big power nozzle makes it feel very heavy when doing stairs. But that’s where the included air turbine attachment comes in–-it, too, does stairs really, really well and can be attached directly to the handle. Both the nozzle and the air turbine attachment easily suck up pet hair. The Multi Surface Panasonic’s nozzle also does a great job getting up pet hair, but I find its pet attachment useless on carpet. Moreover, if you’re vacuuming long silky type pet hair, you have to constantly pull or cut off hair from the agitator brushes and the two small wheels on the bottom of the nozzle. This is time consuming. The much larger, more powerful Plush Pro nozzle can handle more pet hair. (I’ll add a picture of the two nozzles side by side after the review posts.)
Both models do floors well, too, but I think the Multi-Surface excels in all floors. The Plush Pro sounds like a tank on ceramic tile floors, while the Multi-Surface glides, with its lightweight and super soft bristles. The Pro Plush bristles are harder, typical vacuum bristles. In addition the Multi-Surface has an innovative edge cleaning design, complete with super soft bristles in front of the nozzle that dusts the baseboards! The Pro Plush also does baseboards well, but nothing can compete with the Multi-Surface’s edge cleaning. As a smaller nozzle, too, it fits easier under cabinets and such, but the Pro Plush also fits under cabinets. In addition, the Pro Plush nozzle is more like the nozzles on the traditional canisters with carpet height adjustments.
The canisters are heavy on these Panasonics, so they don’t easily perch on stairs and can’t be held while vacuuming. Thus, even though the telescopic wand extends from two feet to three feet, a long, straight stairway could be a challenge to vacuum. There are three filters--a cleanable pre-filter in the dust cup, a washable sponge one in the dust cup, and a HEPA exhaust one in a drawer in the canister. To me, the HEPA one smells like an air purifier with an ionizer on. I really like that, but some may not. Both the HEPA and the sponge filters are replaceable. The HEPA filter is actually suppose to be replaced when it becomes evenly dirty. Currently, on the Panasonic website, the HEPA filter costs $8, the sponge filter costs $6 and the belt is $5. The dust cup is easy to empty and clean, and complete directions are included in the user’s manual, which is a most excellent and thorough one. Safety features include a motor protector and a thermal protector.
So, which model to get? As stated earlier in the review, it’s too bad you can’t get a model with both nozzles, or buy a nozzle by itself. Then you’d have the perfect canister vacuum. You can, however, buy an air turbine attachment for $25 at the Panasonic website, and I would recommend that for anyone getting the Multi-Surface model, who also wanted a good air powered small attachment. If you have a lot of floors and not too thick carpet, I would indeed suggest getting the Multi-Surface model, unless you think you would be constantly cleaning the agitator brushes due to long hair or threads and such. If you need a canister for lots of carpet, though, including plush carpet, the Plush Pro model might be your best bet. Both models are excellent canister vacuums, because Panasonic tends to excel in canister vacuums.
On carpets thick or thin it performs like a charm. The height is adjustable and the brush does a good job.
It's a little heavy for using it in staircases, but still much better than the average upright models.
Cleaning it works pretty good and the suction power is also very strong until the container is overfull.
The only downsides I found:
It sometimes is falling over when I pull it around corners, I never have this with my Dyson ball I'm using for hard floors (Dyson is awesome on hard floors! On thick carpets this one is MUCH better even with the carpet tool on the Dyson).
The handle can not be secured on the canister for parking (e.g. if you have to move something while cleaning) like it is possible on Dysons and other cleaners. It stands only because the carpet tool is heavy and locks the handle upright. Well this works if the handle is not pulled out to the longest possible adjustment and the carpet is not thick. It does not work in my house, it's falling over almost every time I try this. This is pretty annoying! I guess the Japanese designers are not 1.90m / 75inches tall as I am and do not have thick carpets.
But those are my only complaints. I like the performance and the built quality seems to be also very good.
the vacuum parts are easy to wash. this vacuum does excellent job on hardwood floors, rugs and upholstered furniture.
When I did manage to pull it wehre I wanted to go, it did a great job at picking up dirt. Great vacuum if your wheels are greased. Otherwise pulling it around is a pain. I returned mine.
