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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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 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.

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.

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 is nothing extraordinarily "loud" about it. I would not say that it is quiet...it is of normal pitch or what you would normally expect of a vacuum as far as sound level is concerned. :)

It's not too loud. I think it's a normal noise for a vacuum.

Compared to previous vacuums I have owned, this model seems very quiet. My kids usually run out of the room when I vacuum. With this model, they barely notice the noise.

I did not find it to be loud at all. Just a minute I will go turn it on and pay close attention. Ok it sounds like a vacuum I don't think it is any louder than my old Hover.

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

Question

How much suction does the hose have? Can it suck up sand and dirt from 3 inches away?

That'a a loaded question. Wet sand is almost impossible to pick up with a household vacuum. My shop vac will pick up wet sand. Also what kind of dirt, powder, clay...hard to answer.

What I can say is that when using the extension wand it pulls dust off the top of the baseboards with just the crevice tool, where my old vac had to "scrub" with the dusting brush.

After using the hose for awhile the AirSpeed attachment and extension need a strong yank to separate them.

It has great suction! It can suck up hair from that distance but I doubt any vacuum can get sand and dirt. Little confused by having to vacuum from 3 inches away. If it's hard to reach use the hose.

Mine can. We have to make sure larger loose objects such as paper and fabric are out of the way so they aren't vac'd too.

I only had the vacuum for a day (I bought it for hardwood floors, and it was not good on them at all), but the suction from the hose was very good.

yes. the power from the tool hose is every bit as powerful as from the floor beater.

I tried putting it one the floor across from a little piece of paper and it did not suck it up until about 2 inches away. But this vacumn has the BEST power I have ever felt on a vacumn. I think it is as good as my shop vac. It gets all the crumbs/dirt/etc out of the cracks in my hard wood floor.

3 inches is probably a stretch but probably on a bare floor, I tested this with some cat food that I laid on the carpet and it needed to be about an inch away for it to move it, that kind of suction is probably going to be hard to find in a $100 vacuum, but this does a fine job anyways

The suction is excellent. The down side
of this machine is the noise. But at the
price, I'm not complaining.
