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.

The bracket that holds the cord folds up when you are ready to vacuum so its easy to get the cord off.

"Easy release cord" sounds fancy but it just means you can unwind it from the back of the vacuum easily, which you can. There is no automatic release or retrieval system on the AS1000A.

the lower cord holding bracket rotates out of the way so the cord comes off the bottom bracket all at once.
answered 3 years, 8 months ago

All it means is that you don't have to manually unravel the cord, the little lever that holds it in place is movable so you can pull the whole thing off at once.

answer 8
There are 2 spots where the cord wraps around, top and bottom.

The bottom hook can be rotated so that it is no longer retaining the cord. Allowing you to easily remove the whole cord without unwrapping it from the two hooks.

The bottom cleat on the back of the vacuum where the cord winds turns so you can turn it up and take the entire cord off at one time rather than have to unwind it loop by loop.

answer 10
The cord wraps around 2 posts/holders. The bottom post pivots, so you can pull the cord off easily. That would be my only guess at what this means. It is like most other upright cord wrap mechanisms, where the vacuum does not have cord retraction.

I work for Eureka and this reference is to a rotating power cord retainer on the back of the unit. To release the power cord, turn the bottom retainer 180 degrees to slide the cord loose, rather than having to unwind the cord.

This vacuum is a little on the heavy side, but when pushing it or pulling it, it moves pretty easily... but if you had to get it up stairs or lift it alot, this is not the vacuum for you... for lightweight, I'd go with an Oreck... but they are much more expensive.

This machine has incredible suction power. I had an old vacuum, which I thought was great, until it broke and I bought this one, and my goodness didn't know I had so much dirt in the carpets. It's a good buy, and easy to assemble as everything clicks into place. I have never purchased a Eureka before, always stuck to the better know names, but this is a good buy. I see you inquired 6 months ago, so this is probably moot now.

This vacuum has tremendous suction power and I also have six cats, so I know about having cat hair issues... this vacuum leaves NOTHING behind and is very easy to clean. It is not lightweight and the hose is very short, so if she has stairs to clean, this may not be a good vacuum for her, but if it's just to use as an upright, it's a great deal for the money.

It works great at picking up animal hair! But I personally wouldn't recommend it for cleaning out the car because when using the extension hose, the bottom brush roll continues to spin which can create problems. (My brush roll destroyed my power cord). But for floors it works amazing.

I work for Eureka and think this is a fantastic idea. One question, does your friend like the idea of using bags? The reason I ask, some people like their Oreck because it uses high filtration bags because of allergies. Walmart now has a bagged version of the AirSpeed for shoppers that prefer bagged over bagless, which uses premium filtration Arm & Hammer dust bags that eliminate odors. The AirSpeed ABS bagged is model number AS1050A.

It has the normal narrow tube suction and a brush. Those are not motorized. Also thier is another brush that has the beater brush and will run just like the floor beater/brush but in a small detachable piece.

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.

?? It has an electric motor powered rug beater, so it pulls itself along if that is what you mean.

I replaced my windtunnel with this vacuum. In terms of the suction the windtunnel doesn't compare. The suction on this vacuum is awesome. I have not had a belt problem as of yet with this model, but I have only had it a month or so. I was burning up belts with the windtunnel too.

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.

Its a better vacuum without a doubt. It gets up dirt that other vacuums leave in your carpet, the suction is fantastic.

Hoover has always been my choice but to get the top of the line costs too much (though less than the Dyson I bought); I haven't had this one long enough to compare it with the Hoover's that I have owned but it is doing a good job so far. And the cost factor made my final decision for me.

can't say against that specific brand, but had to change a belt the first week. Miss my old direct drive unit. Carpet suction = good/very good. Tool suction = bad

This is the best suction vacuum I've ever had. I just replaced my bissel windtunnel. I borrowed my mothers dyson while my other vacuum broke and this one works by far the best.

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.
