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.

That is in the ear of the listner... unless you have a meter, and I don't. This is much quieter then my previous Hoover. It is a bit lower pitched also then the hoover. But it still appears to be a DC brush type moter so it does still have that brush whine.

I have noticed on other models that when it gets high pitched it usually means that the filters are at capacity and need to be cleaned, and even then the power is not good anymore. This vacumm held its power the whole way through my home. The cup was full to capacity and it still was constant in sound. It is not loud but a constant purr.

It has a more muffled sound. It doesn't seem to have the higher whistle of wind a dyson has, the rumble of the motor is less grr sounding than a hoover. The brush does make a good hrummm sound but it depends on the carpet pile depth. Over all it's not bad. Worst case I'm sure you can find away to test them out at sears or lowes. Eurekas in general sound similar

There are several filters. Three inside the canister that you can wash, but over time they get warped and it's difficult to put back together properly. There are two hepa filters that you can clean or replace. I'm not sure they ever really worked on mine as they never looked dirty at all and I had it over a year.

You can wash the suction cup inside and then you need to get a brush to brush the white filter. I just washed the actual suction cup inside, and it was easy to do. I don't know how much a replacement filger is but it does tell you what filter will fit this if you go to the eureka website.

I work for Eureka, and the AS1000A AirSpeed does not come with washable filters. The dust cup filter can be cleaned by tapping the filter frame on a hard surface and by lightly brushing the pleats of the filter with the dusting brush from the vacuum cleaner. However, if you purchase the Arm & Hammer replacement dust cup filter style DCF-21, it is a washable filter and can be cleaned with warm soapy water. It should be air dried for approximately 24 hours after washing to allow it to dry completely before reinstalling it into the vacuum.

The AirSpeed also includes a HEPA filter at the exhaust to trap allergens such as dust mites and pollens, which is an Arm & Hammer style EF-6. This filter is not washable and should be replaced every six to twelve months, or as needed. To determine if this filter needs to be replaced, hold up to a strong light source, if you cannot see light through the filter, air cannot make it through the filter freely and it should be replaced. Clean filters are important for proper performance of your AirSpeed, if you have questions; please contact our call center at (888)274-3691. These replacement filters are both available at Walmart and on Walmart.com.

The brush roller spins 100% of the time, and there is no way to turn it off. I have a Eureka "Electric Broom" that I used for 7 years before "Upgrading" to this new Eureka. The old electric broom has a three position switch... Off... On... On with Brush Roller.

Most of the surfaces I clean are either Hardwood floors, or Tiled Floors. On the few carpeted areas I clean, the Eureka Upright does an amazing job. But when I move to Hardwood or Tile, I'm greatly disappointed. I'm always "Barefoot" inside my home, and when I clean bare floors, I can feel the brushroller hurling sand and larger bits of dirt straight out the back of the vacum head like a mini-sandblaster, instead of picking up the debris.

It makes no sense... you push the vacum forward.... It picks up dust and lint with no problem... yet hurls sand and larger bits of dirt out the back, onto areas ofthe room you have just cleaned. With the old electric broom, I would keep the brush turned off, and vacum up everything in its path, turning the brush on only when I needed it to "Scrub" a bit of dirt that was stuck to the floor.

I've found that I'm frequently using the long handled hose with tiny brush attachment to clean the floor, and pick up sand and grit that the roller brush has hurled around the room. It's like the vacum is good for a preliminary cleaning, but then I have to follow up, and clean whole floor with the hose and attachments.

I've had this Vacuum for almost a year, and I'm sorry I didn't return it within the first week or so.

I work for Eureka, and the AS1000A AirSpeed® does not shut the brush roll off when using the attachments. It does lift the nozzle off the floor when the handle is placed in the upright position for tool use. However, Walmart offers the new SuctionSeal™ AirSpeed® upright that does shut off the brush roll when the handle is placed in the upright, tool use, position. This on/off brush roll works in conjunction with the SuctionSeal ™plates to provide superior cleaning on hard surface floors, along with an automatic cord rewind, and new washable dust cup filter.

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.

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.

Yes. I have two dogs and a cat. Can't believe the suction on this Eureka. I had an Oreck and there is no comparison. People spend 3 times as much for a Dyson, but I can't imagine a vacuum cleaning better than this. It's also self-propelled.....much easier to use than the Oreck.

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.

There is a pet version AirSpeed Pet AS1002A you might want to get your friend with all the pet hair. And it comes with a pet version of the turbo attachment.

I own a AS1000A and we love it.

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.

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 vacuum moves very easily over carpet and bare floors and maneuvers around furniture and other obstacles quite well. Much more easily than my previous vacuum, a Hoover Whisper Cyclonic.

Yes it is. There are different height adjustments on the vacuum so that I cleans close to the surface but keeps it high enough that it's still easy to roll. It will adjust to any height of flooring, whether it is bare floors, low carpets, thick carpets, etc.

The vac rolls easily without a lot of effort. Not sure by what you mean by not much upper arm strength, but my 9 year old can vacuum with the Airspeed.

I have had the Eureka Airspeed since it came out. It is very easy to push and pull. I have a bad back and arm,so I love how easy it is to operate this vacuum. Ajust the height of the vacuum to see what is better for you. I found that any height that I have it set on works for me!

Not that I can tell! I haven't had that happen with this one at all. My mother borrowed the vacuum and she thought it had since she had dust on her furniture afterward but if it was from my vacuum it was because I hadn't cleaned the filters in a while and they were full.
