Electrolux EL 7020B Oxy3 Ultra Canister Vacuum
After having my last two vacuums die unceremonious deaths, I decided to do a little more research in buying a vacuum than usual. I checked consumer, and epinions for reports on the latest canister vacuums. I tried out my neighbors vacuums to see if they met my needs, and ultimately decided on the Electrolux Oxygen Ultra.
I am not sorry! This vacuum is fantastic. The bare floor attachment in larger than most making the task of vacuuming easier. However, it still manages to fit into all of my smaller areas (between toilet and tub). It is also more narrow than most I have tried. Because of this, I was able to vacuum in between my banister poles, leaving me one less job to do.
This attachment, along with the telescoping pole, did a terrific job getting under my couches, beds, and dressers, with the exception of one of my daughter’s rooms where there isn’t much clearance. Furthermore, I decided to give it a go on my blinds. It did a terrific job removing the dust from…
EL7020A is the highest rated canister by Consumer Reports in 2006 – this is why I chose it. I had this vacuum for almost a month now, and I really like its performance. I like that the wand with the power brush fits under the bed where my upright did not fit. I like that this vacuum has HEPA filtration and I do not sneeze when vacuuming anymore.
The vacuum has powerful suction and nice features like “auto power-brush off when something gets stuck in it” and “auto suction reduction when something stops the airflow, so you can pull it out”. E.g., if a corner of a bathroom rug gets sucked in, the vacuum reduces suction power and you can pull the rug out, and the suction increases automatically.
The bags are very small (mine filled up with carpet fibers after vacuuming the house 2 times). I did not mind, all that means is that I don’t keep all that dirt inside my vacuum in my home and throw it away more often. Like one other user said, the “change bag” light…
I purchased one of these and have been using it for a little over a month. At this point I am totally thrilled with the product for the price. I have owned exectrolux products in the past that were more expensive and a hoover product for about the same price. To say the least I am back to electrolux. I love being able to go under furniture, and being able to disconnect head and use in tight or unusual spots with various attachments. We have a dog and this is a wonderful fur finder! The filtration systems are great for keeping dust and dirt where it belongs once it is sucked up. I’ll never stray from electrolux again.
