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.

stay away

This is easily the worst vacuum cleaner we've ever had. We've mainly had Kenmore vacuums over the past 30 years and they have been very good to excellent, but this is a stinker. The attachments are almost worthless - it seems as if they were designed by people who don't vacuum with input from people who only vacuum, so that the normal user is completely left out. The connections are proprietary, so your old attachments are made obsolete. The pet brush is very loud. The floor brush... what were they thinking? There is no mid-sized brush, but the on-tube attachment (duster? I don't think so; small brush? definitely not) is no substitute. The crevice tool is the ONLY thing that they improved. Suction is so-so and has decreased seriously over fourteen months, despite the fact that we use OEM bags and clean the filter regularly. It doesn't stand for storage as well as older models. All in all, not worth it. To indicate the depth of our (my wife's and my) dislike of this thing, we stopped taking Consumer Reports seriously because they top-rated this. Look elsewhere.

Good Value for the Price

It has very good suction. The onboard tools are convenient, come in handy, and work great. Much quieter and cleans carpeting better than our last canister. Have just purchased it and hope it lasts for many years, will check back in.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Lightweight Easy to Use and great pickup power

i bought this sweeper for my handicapped parents. They are able to use this sweeper with ease. The power is great and the power head has great pick up. Easy to change bag and the attachments are inside the canister. No falling off the unit.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

awesome

SO much easier to push than my old upright. I have neck and back problems and haven't been able to use my old vacuum. Also so much easier to clean the stairs. The only "problem" is they don't have the "intelliclean" the old progressive had. Cleans well and easier to do now

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Works great

The vacuum cleaner bag fit perfectly into my new Kenmore vacuum. I am very pleased with the durability and performance of the cloth vacuum cleaner bags. I would purchase these bags again.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Vacuum

Hi, just wanted to let you know that we are happy with our vacuum purchase. We've only ever had the Kenmore canister vacuums. We enjoy them. They are the only vacuums that seem so easy to use. Thank you.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
