Eureka Eureka AirSpeed Bagless Upright Vacuum, AS1000A

Cleans Carpets Better Than The Leading Bagless Uprights* Unlike other vacuums, the Eureka AirSpeed Bagless Upright Vacuum, AS1000A has two smooth tubes, featuring limited bends and turns. This allows more air to pass through the vacuum. The direct airpath from floor to cup in the Eureka AirSpeed Vacuum Cleaner decreases the distance for dirt to travel, which increases the amount of air flow for power suction. *Based on independent lab test using ASTM F608 to measure embedded dirt removal from carpet as compared to top 5 vacuums in Dollar and Unit sales in 2009 according to NPD point of sale data.

It does have brushes on the edges on the front part where the main brush is. It does very well on edges. We purposely placed some little trash bits on the corners and it picked them all up. I think the design of the brush guard in the front is such that it allows the brush to be closer to the edge. I recommend it, just switched over from a Bissell (which totally lost suction) and it didnt handle at all as well as this one.

I wouldn't recommend for any of floor type. It leaves behind lint on carpet and drags on berber. I can't find a setting that works for berber. It's it drags or it's too high and doesn't pick up. The best feature is the tools feature but it's not worth the investment.

Yes, it is easy to push, however it depends on the level that you set the brushes on (based on the type of floor). It can be very easy to push, very lightweight, if you have the brushes up high, but much harder to push if you have the brushes sitting lower. I have used heavier and I have used lighter. My Kenmore was a lot lighter, but it only lasted a few months, and even with 2 trips to the repair place it was never the same. I would recommend this one.

There is a bar with two wheels on it on the bottom. That bar lowers when the handle is locked. That prevents the beater bar from touching your carpet. So while the bar is not "off" is it in effect not working and your floors are safe.

I had to force my bar to go into the main base the while setting it up. Now it works just fine.

I work for Eureka and you cannot shut the brush roll off on the AirSpeed.

These two cleaners have on/off brush rolls.

I work for Eureka and have been using AirSpeed at home for several months. We purchased a really plush carpet last year and the AirSpeed works fantastic with the height adjustment set on the highest setting. I did have someone ask about using AirSpeed on a Frieze Carpet, what used to be shag carpet in the old days, and I do not have any experience on this type of carpet. I suggest if this is the type of deep pile carpet you are cleaning that you consult the manufacturer of the carpet to find out what types of vacuums should be used for daily cleaning.

To be honest, I don't know.

All I know is that my experience with Hoover vacuums has not yet allowed me to be happy with them, including a Windtunnel model that broke shortly after we bought it!

Compared to that older Hoover Windtunnel model we had, when it worked, the Eureka AirSpeed AS1000A has much stronger suction.

Belt life? Don't know yet - I've only had this AS1000A for about two months. The Hoover didn't even last that long before the belt broke along with part of the housing that encased it. We were never able to use it again. ...And it cost us twice that of the Eureka AirSpeed AS1000A.

Hoover might be a fine brand for others - just not in my experience.

I have owned a Eureka canister model for several years before buying the Eureka AirSpeed, and it's still going strong. It, too, has great suction.

I work for Eureka and the Airspeed model AS1000A cleans carpets better than the Hoover bagless T series model UH70120 based on the industry standard test method for evaluating carpet embedded dirt removal effectiveness of household vacuum cleaners - ASTM F608-09. Both of these models have rubber belts that are subject to regular maintenance. We suggest changing belts every six months to a year in order to maintain cleaning performance and ship a spare belt with every AirSpeed vacuum.

I work for Eureka and the AirSpeed does not include any floor cleaning tools. There is a bare floor setting, which keeps the brush roll slightly elevated to clean debris from bare floors. However, if bare floor cleaning is a primary concern you should consider the Complete Clean model 8873AZ, the Pet Lover 8863AVZ, or the Smart Vac model 4870. These units all have on/off brush rollers, and rubberized wheels to improve cleaning performance on hard surface floors.

I work for Eureka and both the washable style DCF-21 pre motor filter and the replacement HEPA filter style EF-6 are available at most Walmart stores in the US. The AirSpeed includes a cleaning brush for the DCF-21 pre motor filter, which is also washable. To maintain suction please replace or clean filters regularly. Please note the side of the HEPA filter facing out is the clean air side, so it must be removed to check the reverse side to verify if the filter is dirty. Recommend holding the filter up to a light, if light cannot easily be seen through the filter or it is older than six to twelve months the HEPA filter should be changed to insure optimum cleaning performance.

Question

Does the beater brush bar stop spinning, once you turn the dial from floor to hose?

Is there a switch to turn it off when using on bare floors (ex: wood floors)?

No, The airflow changes byut not the brush. I just use my toe to kick it up to high carpet and the brush is pretty much out of the way.

Yes. It also raises from the floor when you have the handle in the fully upright position.

Yes there is a switch to turn it to tools. You just have to remember to turn it back when doing carpets which I forgot the first time and it didn't pick up very well. Then I figured out what I had done and turned it back to carpet and it was great.

I think you need to flip the switch on the base to "Bare Floor" to stop the brushes from spinning.

"NO" you cannot turn it off when you are using the hose & attachments so you just have to keep that in mind.

I work for Eureka and the AirSpeed does not have an on/off brush roll and the brush roll will not stop spinning when the selector is in the tool use position or bare floor position. When using the tools with the handle in the upright position, the brush roll is lifted off the floor. If this feature is important please consider the Complete Clean model 8873AZ, the Pet Lover 8863AVZ, or the Smart Vac model 4870. These units all have an on/off brush roll switch, and disengage the brush roll when the handle is placed in the upright position for using the tools, or when you turn the switch to the bare floor setting. These units also all have soft touch wheels for use on hard surface floors.

Question

I could see how one would empty the dust cup filter after every vacuum, but is it necessary to also clean the dirt cup filer after each use?

How many of you actually take the time to clean the dirt cup filter, in detail, as the maintenance recommends?

Honestly, this thing pulls up so much and we never wear shoes in the house, no pets and we are clean freaks, but it somehow gets enough that if I don't empty it every couple of vacs, the con tense starts to get to clumped and not appear to be allowing as much air flow.

As for cleaning the dust cup.. This isn't a hard thing to do and I do it every time. I only say this because I have a dyson that is nearly impossible to clean. ( see my review on the airspeed) and the airspeeds is easy to clean. I doubt not cleaning it often will cause such a failure in suction as it does in a dyson. Just from the looks of the design much simpler..

I clean it every other time it is used. It's very simple and easy to do. It only takes a few minutes to spray the dust off with the sink sprayer. Then a quick dry with a towel and it's done!

I think the dirt needs to be knocked off the filter after each use. Its amazing how easily dirty it gets. But one look at it and you will know if it also needs to be brushed and washed.

VacAnswers has a good response. Seems like you'll be rewarded with clean carpets if you clean the cups after each use. Not a big deal. We are reasonably clean and neither clean freaks nor dirt freaks. We have a Hoover SteamVac, washed a bedroom carpet twice then vacuumed it with a Dirt Devil, still wan't happy, bought the AirSpeed and wow, could not believe what was still in the rug after two washes and a vacuum. The cups were full.

I dont empty the dust canister everytime I use it.. lots of times I use it only 5 mins. Its a matter of common sense and opportunity..do it while the "hood" is up, its not a big deal. Takes seconds.

I do it about 1x a week because it just looks filthy by then. I take it outside and spray it with a power hose, then leave it outside to dry.

I work for Electrolux and we recommend emptying the dust cup after each use in order to maintain optimal performance. The Ergorapido has a mechanism to easily clean the filter before emptying the dust cup by snapping the spring loaded filter before dumping the cup. The filter is hand washable, but this does not have to be done after each use.

Not necessary to do either unless you are working on really dirty rugs. I empty the canister when it starts to get full and I clean the filter out about once a week.
