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.

The suctions is powerful and the vacuum is easy to use and performs well. The attachments are useful. The hose gets detached from the canister a bit too easily. Otherwise, it's great.
Have had similar model for many years and very functional. planned to replace with new but this one failed the test. Not as much suction, hose head much too bulky and very light material, power head kept working sideways when on carpet. Crevice tool had so many suction relief holes it was minimally effective. It did not have the sensor for uptake material so not able to tell when carpet clean. Old unit attachments could not cross over.

Love the vacuum (my 3rd one) , hate the plastic. PROS -Amazingly long cord - I only have to plug it in twice in my long L shaped ranch house -Amazingly long handle - I'm 5'7" and I love not feeling like I have to bend over -Nice long 6' hose - the long handle/hose makes it easy to clean the corners of the ceiling - old spider webs, vents, behind the bed, etc -I love the rug brush! It has no belt so stuff is less likely to get tangled up in there - I can even vacuum area rugs and the dogs Kong beds - The plastic around the bottom of the wand doesn't scratch door frames, furniture like the metal wand did CONS -ALL THAT PLASTIC!!!!!!!!! -I've had this vacuum about 2-3 years now and it has duct tape holding it together in 2 places. The first was the floor attachment - it broke within months - fortunately that's just a cosmetic fix. The little plastic piece that holds the wand and hose together was the next to go. You had to work it just so to take the hose off or more likely, to keep it on. It would fall apart while you were vacuuming. Finally, one day it just disappeared. Well too bad, I rarely use the hose alone, so now the hose is duct taped to the wand! -Oh plastic- that stuff that keeps you from scratching the bottom of your furniture also keeps you from vacuuming UNDER your furniture because it's so wide - about 3". So forget about vacuuming under the dresser, your couch, between the fridge and stove, etc. Now I own a Swiffer dry cloth sweeper-more work. -I feel like the bag gets full faster. And of course Sears is always out of bags! I only vacuum once a week whereas when my kids were small I vacuumed more often and did not feel like I was always changing the bag. We have about 70% non-carpeted floors so I also sweep them as needed during the week. So I'm thinking the canister must have gotten smaller also? CONCLUSION Overall performance, I have nothing to specifically complain about - generally speaking, on a day to day basis, it gets the job of vacuuming my floors done and is easy to use and maneuver - 5 STARS. Quality - plastic 1 STAR, so far, everything else is ok - 3 stars overall Out of the 3 Kenmore's I've personally owned, this one leaves me with a Love/hate relationship. I definitely love the pros, but really, how bad is it that I should have a duct taped vacuum cleaner within months of owning it? My guess is that when the Sears guys designed this pretty new vacuum, they made some great improvements based on some great suggestions. Then they prettied it up with purple and white and made it CHEAP with plastic. BUT they forgot to test the whole thing in REAL HOMES. As did that famous magazine who has ranked it so highly and we have all trusted for generations. Suction and a long cord are definitely pros, but if it won't vacuum where it needs to, is it the best it can be? So for that, I give it 3 stars. I hope they take the CONS and improve them. I love the canister vac. Bring back trim, sturdy metal!

I love my Kenmore Canister Vacuums. This is only the second one I have purchased in 45 years of marriage. It is so adaptable to any job I am doing and is light and maneuvers easily.
This is the 4th Kenmore vacuum I have owned. The first, purchased in the mid 80's, is still running, although it looks a little worse for wear. The powermate attachment bit the dust years ago. The next 2 died from lots of use. This one appears to have been designed by a large man who had never vacuumed a home in his life. The wand and attachments are too large to fit under the furniture - may as well have a canister vacuum. I am too old to move the couch every week to clean under it. I am hoping that the hose from one of the 2 dead ones will work on this one so I can use the wands and attachments from it. Otherwise, it works ok. The HEPA filter is great for people with allergies. Compared to a lot of other vacuums on the market, it is wonderful. Just wish it had been designed for women to actually use to clean their homes!
The suction is great but I do not like the attachments at all. Crevice tool is much too short and the brush ....... hate it. It needs to be smaller ... more compact with more bristles. Would love to be able to order one if there is one that would fit this vac. I gave only 3 stars based solely on the attachments. The attachments, to me, are just as important as the suction of the vac.
Following purchase I tried to vacuum my home and it repeatedly shut down. If I detached and reattached the wand it would start up again. The beater bar also repeatedly stopped working and could be restarted by pushing "restart".
