Product Description

Kenmore Progressive Canister Vacuum - Superior Cleaning

Cleaning floors and furniture is now a simple process with the Kenmore Progressive canister vacuum. A 2-motor system, retractable cord storage, Stair Grip and variable speed settings make carpet and bare floor cleaning a cinch. This vacuum's true HEPA filter keeps pet dander and dust out of the air so you can breathe easy. From the 7-foot hose that swivels 360 degrees and reaches the highest surfaces to the Horsehair dusting brush for fine wooden furniture and floors, this vacuum has the tools to get the job done.

  • Designed to make cleaning-up after pets a cinch, the Pet PowerMate™ attachment lifts hair, dander and more from furniture, rugs and carpeting in seconds.
  • Ideal for all types of cleaning, the variable speed control lets you adjust the vacuuming speed based on the amount of dust and dirt you're picking up.
  • The exclusive Stair Grip™ feature keeps the canister body upright and securely in place while the stairs get cleaned, for solid performance and increased safety.
  • A 6-foot hose reaches from floor to ceiling, around corners and far beyond, so no matter where you need to clean, dirt cannot escape. 
  • Quick to connect and featuring an array of attachments, the CrossOver Handle rapidly transitions the vacuum from carpet to flooring, crevice cleaning to pet hair pick-up.
  • The True HEPA certified filter can be trusted to remove almost all significant allergens from air flowing through the vacuum, so you can breathe easy.

Attachments are not very useful
I LOVE vacuums. Absolutely my favorite household appliace. Pros (and background) - I've owned this vacuum for about six months, after my previous Sears Progressive (upright) had it brush literally come out of the moldings. I had it for over 12 years. I replaced it with a this canister, since I've never had one and it sounded likfe fun, and (practically) I have a combo of wood, tile, rugs & carpets. I've been very pleased with the pickup of pet hair, dirt - whatever else I throw at it. I do enjoy being able to go from carpet to wood/tile floors with just a switch of the button, conveniently located on the handle. The telescoping wand is fun - I've enjoyed vacuuming my ceiling and getting spiders at a safe distance .. Cons - Tools. The crevice tool is not long enough to use on my sofa, between the seats in the car, or in the dryer's vent. The dust brush is too wide to use in slender places. I use my old upright for the tools because they're much better.

Piece of ****, cheap and missing features that other older vacuums had.
This vacuum is a POS.... the motor cuts out when you pull on hose. There is warning that says the vaccum won't operate if the hose isn't fully connected but apparently it is never fully connected or just the activity of pulling the vacuum to a new location puts it over the limit. I would take it back but bought it several months ago and only now took it out of the box. Still may try to return anyway, it is that bad. Can't imagine keeping/using for 15 years like past vacuums. Also no way to attach the vacuum head to the unit for easy carrying and storage. This is my second extremely poor experience with Kenmore products. Sorry Sears you've lost another customer due to crappy/cheap products.

Powermate FAILURE

This our second kenmore vacuum. We like canister bag vacuums. We bought our original one in 2002 it lasted 10 years that one was rated 5 star. We bought this new vacuum 4/16/2012. It work wonderful for two years in july 2014 the Powermate head developed a short in it. So it makes the vacuum basically useless! Spoke with repairman in area 7th identical Kenmore vacuum with exact same issue that HE has seen! One of the vacuum was the repairmans. To fix this problem you must purchase a new Powermate. If you go to sear"s web site they'll sell you one for $304.99 . A new vacuum of Kenmore inferior quality only cost $269.99. Thank you for your time.

Piece of *****

After only 15 months of occasional use the wand release has fallen off several times and now the pile adjustment level has stopped working. Sears won't even talk about it because it's out of warranty. Look elsewhere for a vac that's built better.

The machine is doing a great job, I have had Sears vacs in the past. I have actually recommended this vac to other people. My daughter has also had a Sears vac for years and really likes it. It isn't too heavy if you have to carry it up and down stairs. I don't feel it is too expensive either.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Why I went back to a Kenmore...

About a year and a half ago, my very old Kenmore canister was starting to show its age, so I decided it was time to get a new vacuum. I wanted to see what all the Dyson hype was about, and my husband surprised me with their canister vac at Christmas. At first I thought it was great. I mean, it's a $500 vacuum, so it MUST be awesome, right? Wrong. I finally got fed up with that thing and sold it and bought myself a shiny new Kenmore Progressive canister, and I couldn't be happier. The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five is because I'm not sure that I like the changes that they made to the attachments, though I haven't really used them yet. Also, I wish that they'd made the door to where you store the attachments on board open and close more smoothly. Otherwise, I couldn't be happier to be back to the power of a motorized head and no more trying to dump out a canister. I prefer replacing bags, it's just less mess. One change they made from my old Kenmore to this one that I do like very much is the variable suction. It's great for use on more delicate rugs.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Love canister BUT

First, let me say I really do enjoy using this vacuum. It cleans perfectly, handles easily and is all around a pleasure to operate. Having said that let me add--the R&D people should not "fix:" something that is not broken. Having the attachments on the handle may sound like a neat idea--but it isn't. They make the handle top heavy, causing it to tip over whenever you want it to stand there while you move a piece of furniture or just plugging it in. Also, what did they do to the attachment cover. I've had Kenmore canisters for 40 years--the covers have always come off and back on easily for cleaning. Today, I tried for an hour to put the cover back on and finally took it to the store for a technician to put it back. I really do like this vacuum and will certainly purchase another when needed--but please can we go back to the original form without all these "improvements?"

I would recommend this product to a friend.
