Summary: Eureka should be prosecuted for ripping off the public with this junk! I bought a Eureka Boss Whirlwind Lite in 2003 for about $100, and it served me well until the motor died in 2010. For the price it was a good vacuum. I thought I would stay with Eureka for the 7 years they gave me. Well this trashy vacuum didn't last one day without breaking down.
Summary: Bought this vac at Kohls for my mothers day gift, and what a disappointment! I too thought after the first use that it was great, but now...after replacing 2 belts and spitting dirt, clogs easily and I am hating bagless. Now my vaccuum will make the room smell like smoke and then like crap. Don't waste your money... I am now looking to see what is recommended and there is another Eureka 4870MZ, but now I am a little skeptical. Thoughts?
Summary: We've had this vacuum cleaner for about 3 years now. At first it was great. I loved the cup that caught all the dirt. But over the course of the last 2 1/2 years I've discovered what a pain this vacuum cleaner is. Not only is there a cup to empty, there is also a little filter type thing inside where the cup is that needs to be emptied on a regular basis because it catches all the hair and dust bunnies before that stuff gets to the cup.
Summary: I've owned this vacuum for about 2 years and it's operation has been consistently poor for that entire time. The self-cleaning duster on the right side doesn't pick up dust so much as push it around a surface and it also doesn't self-clean very well which means I end up having to take it outside and brush the dust off with my hand (what little dust actually remains on it after dusting).
Summary: This thing has been spewing dust and dirt out behind it every time I run it. I find myself re-vacuuming areas of floor I just went over until I give up. It started smoking, too, and smells horrible. A quick google search today informs me I'm not alone. This is junk. Don't buy it.
Summary: This is the worst vacuum ever. It worked ok for the first few months then it went downhill from there. The filters clog very easily and it sounds like a jet is getting ready to take off. The bottom floor adjustment broke off and it cant be repaired.
Summary: I feel generous in giving this product 2 stars - but I will say that it has great suction and cleans the carpet wonderfully! HOWEVER, half the house it carpet, the rest is hardwood/tile and it only throws dirt on hard surface floors. I need to only use the attachments to clean my hard floors. Speaking of attachments... The hose and attachments are the most poorly designed of any vaccuum we have owned.
Summary: This the worst vacuum I have ever owned. It spews dust and dirt all over the place. The attachments are a joke. They are way too short and awkward to use. The unit itself is clumsy and not user friendly. You have to keep this unit close to pristine to get any use out of it. I bought this because it was on sale and I was on a budget. I didn't expect it to preform like a high end vacuum but still... It clogs so easy it's ridiculous. I would not recommend this to anyone.
Summary: At first it appears to be a good machine until you try to use the attatchments.When you use attatchments, the unit spays dust all over the place.Called eureka and they told me that this was NORMAL!!! THIS IS UN ACCEPTABLE AND I WOULD RECOMMEND THAT YOU NEVER PURCHASE A EUeRKA PRODUCT AGAIN.DO NOT BUY THIS VACUUM!!! And I will ad that the hose for using the attatcments is too short...
Summary: Do not buy this vacuum. I have had one for a year now. Within the first few months power brush attached stopped working , the lock that holds it upright has broken. I have disassembled numerous times to clean it out and within the next use it is blowing the recently vacuumed dirt back onto the floor. It has to the most poorly built vacuum I have ever seen.
