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. It does have a bare floor setting, but if you are looking to clean a lot of bare floors I would recommend the Eureka Complete Clean bagless upright or Smart Vac bagged upright, both available on Walmart.com. 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.

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

answer 1
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.

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

Is this vacuum capable of dealing with large amounts of long dog hair?

I just purchased this and so far so good with the dog hair. I have 3 dogs, a husky who sheds like crazy, a lab and boston terrier. The amount of dog hair in the cup when I was done was more than my other vacuum ever picked up! I also have hard wood and ceramic tile. It works well on them too, where other vacuums I have had in the past would just blow the hair around. This actually sucked it up off the hardwood floors. For the price, you really can't go wrong!

I had a Golden and for me I would not trust this particular model, not sure how it would handle the longer hair. I would think the less expensive model would do the same job, if not better. I believe this is a walmart only model I just found out so I am sure the other model is just as good for $25. less.
We vac almost everyday and know how the pet hair clings to everything, and with this VERY short hose and lack of crevice tool I'd look elsewhere.

ABSOLUTELY! I have 3 big dogs in the house,short hair and long hair, and they shed constantly and i vacuum everyday, sometimes twice a day and it has great suction. I do not have to go over a spot more than once, it picks up the hair w/no problem. I would definitely recommend to pet owners!

I have an Akita that "blows" her coat and it works wonders are sucking up her hair! Her's isn't quite as long as a retrievers, but it's the amount of it that should be comparable. I've only had it a few days, but I am really happy with my purchase....

I work for Eureka, and have been using the AirSpeed at home since June. We have a Chow and Colley mix with long hair that sheds pretty heavy and the AirSpeed Upright works great getting the hair off of the carpeting and furniture. It spins the dog hair into a ball in the dust cup, which is easy to empty with the push of a button to flip open the bottom of the cup. We really don’t use our AirSpeed to clean the tile floors in the house, but I have run it over small portions of the tile to get a stray wad of fur tumbling across the floor. No issues picking those up as well. Give the AirSpeed a try and let us know what you think by writing a review. If you don’t like it, return it for a refund within the first 90 days. It has a 2-year limited warranty, but 90 days is the return period for a refund or exchange at Walmart.

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!
