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.

We've had this for almost 2 years now, and it has been an absolute success! My wife was always more of an upright vacuum person, until she started using this. Now she says she doesn't know how she ever got by without this vacuum. It's so versatile, and she raves about how well it picks up pet hair. I used to do all the vacuuming, but since we've gotten this, she actually enjoys using it so much, she uses it more than I do! We bought the extended warranty, but of course NOTHING has broken or malfunctioned. Typical Kenmore quality we've come to expect. It will be a long time before we need to buy another vacuum!
This is a replacement for a similar model. This one is easy to use and has good suction. I have mostly wood floors and like that it is relatively lightweight and easy to pull around
I have only used this vacuum twice since my purchase but so far I love it, I have 18 stairs to clean and this was easier to use than others I have had.
I've had sears canister vacuum cleaners for years, however this new design stinks. If it is not broke, why fix it. This new design has a big bulky end when you unhook attachments, so unable to get into tight spaces. The crevice tool puts half the suction out to the side so you loose full suction powder at the end. The power nozzle for carpets doesn't seem to really grip to carpet even on extra low setting. Just seems to float over the top without much suction. Had to end up buying an upright for my carpets. Didn't notice this with previous models. I have always liked these vacuums, but not this one. Another thing, the flexible hose that attaches to the hose handle will eventually crack and suck air there. Duck tape it and you will get a little more life out of it. They should have redesigned this area instead.

This unit was recommended by Consumer Report. For use on floors and rugs, very good and dependable. However, have to use dust mop to go under furniture and then vacuum up from that. This wand is to wide for under dressers, desks and bureaus. Now because of this wand end the tools are useless. The brush, I guess, is for baseboards only. Too little brush and too much hard plastic for causing scratches. Very disappointed. Had an ELECTROLUX since 1977. Motor died, but will pay for rebuilt and hopefully it will run for a long time....... This Kenmore is not even on par with my older vacuum. If needing to vacuum floors and will move all furniture out of room - go for it. Otherwise, use a mop.
