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 7-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.

Cleans very well, but needs simple design improvements

After owning many bagged & bagless uprights, canisters, and central vacuums for the past 50 years, we found this Kenmore canister to be a great value and it cleaned our entire house very well. Miele, Electrolux, etc. were much more expensive and didn't have half the features that this Kenmore included. PROS: Strong canister suction, long retractable cord, long electric hose, hose handle with electronic suction control and power switch for the canister and the power nozzle, telescopic wand, sturdy power nozzle that stands upright, has multiple carpet height adjustments, a headlight, and an easy to use foot release (While vacuuming carpets, the power nozzle almost feels like it is self-propelled and is fun and easy to use). The power mate jr. cleans pet hair off furniture very well. The big wheels on the canister make it easy to move around. Stair lock on canister is a good safety feature. Large disposable dust bag (also available in cloth HEPA) is convenient, easy to change, and clean. HEPA filter is great! The color and design of this vacuum make it look very attractive. Many features at an affordable price. Often on sale too!!!! CONS: The canister, hose, hose handle, and power nozzle could all be much lighter and smaller. Although the hose swivels 360' on the canister, the swivel should really be on the handle to prevent the hose from kinking (Miele, Electrolux, Etc., have the swivel on the handle). Also, the hose should be crushproof like on Miele. The built in dusting brush on the handle is too wide for most cleaning tasks, the bristles are too short, is cumbersome to use, and looks very ugly. The dusting brush should have long bristles, should be narrow, and should be stored inside the canister. In addition, the crevice tool that is also attached to the hose handle is way too short for any crevice task and is the least used attachment of all (It wasn't necessary to be stored on the hose handle. This should've been stored inside the canister). The swivel design bare floor tool is too short for cleaning large area bare floors and the new swivel design neck keeps getting stuck and doesn't work well. CONCLUSION: None of the canister vacuums we researched were perfect, nor did they have as many included features of this Kenmore. A vacuum is supposed to clean well and this was definitely accomplished with this Kenmore model. If we didn't need the power mate jr. to clean furniture pet hair and didn't want a telescopic wand, we could've selected the less expensive green or orange Kenmore canisters that both had an electric power nozzle for carpets. These models also had much lighter hose handles, but had a shorter hose and exposed power nozzle wire on the wands.

Great vacuum sweeper!

This vacuum sweeper is very similar to my old Kenmore one and does an even better job with all the dog hair. I do like the fact that you can extend the handle easily.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great cleaner

This particular vacuum cleaner is very easy to handle and move around to get into difficult areas. It has enough power to pick up any dirt. Being lighter it can be used to do the stairs....

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great Vacuum

I purchased this vacuum to use on my carpet and hard wood floor. It's easy to switch from one surface to another (just flick a button) and the attachments are easy to use and all within reach. The canister moves with you and it is much easier than the Shark which I originally intended to buy. I prefer old fashioned bags to the bag free as the mess is all contained when you open it up to clean it out.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

vacuum

I THINK THE PREVIOUS TWO VACUUMS I PURCHASED FROM SEARS WHICH WERE ABOUT THE SAME PRICE WERE BETTER THAN THIS NEW ONE. THE PLASTIC HANDLE IS TOO HEAVY, AND I DON'T LIKE HAVING THE EXTRA NOZZLE STORED ON THE HANDLE. ALL ATTACHMENTS SHOULD BE STORED IN THE CANNISTER LIKE THEY USED TO BE. WHEN YOU THINK YOU ARE IMPROVING A PRODUCT A COMPANY MUCH OF THE TIME LOWERS THE QUAITY OF THE PRODUCT. I RECOMMENDED THIS VACUUM TO A FRIEND AND TOOK HER TO PURCHASE THIS VACUUM FROM SEARS AND NOW AM EMBARRASSED THAT I DID SO. GET BACK ON THE BALL AND IMPROVE THE CHANGES YOU MADE. I SEE YOU ALSO NEED TO IMPROVE YOUR WAY OF COUNTING LETTERS ENTERED. I ERASED SOME AND KNOW I DON'T HAVE AS MANY LETTERS AS WHAT THE CHARACTER NUMBERS READ AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS SURVEY.

Progressive Canister Vacuum Cleaner

I love this vacuum. The reason I purchased this particular vacuum was for its special pet cleaning feature. It has a removable hand held head with very strong suction, I have two beautiful dos that are always on the couch and the shed terribly. I have tried other hand held vacuums but the suction on this one is better than any I have tried. It is a canister vacuum so it make it easier to use with its long hose and it is very light weight.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
