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 8-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.
- The Infrared Dirt Sensor activates a red LED that tells you where to focus cleaning power, then shines green once it's all clean.
- 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.
- Superbly maneuverable, the Swivel+ Steering System™ lets you easily glide around corners and into difficult places for an easy, fast and thorough clean.
- 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.
- Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America approval means this vacuum effectively removes allergens from carpets while limiting the release of dust and dander into the air.
- 6-in-1 Handle Technology serves-up a power nozzle and floor brush, a large Pet PowerMate™, a smaller pet upholstery tool, a horsehair dust brush and a crevice tool for tight spots.

This is a great vacuum. I especially appreciate the "pet fur" function, and the fact that you can adjust the suction. It's a bit heavy, but that means it does the job!

Do not buy this piece of garbage. I have to fight with it to remove the beater brush so I can put the floor attachment on. The lever that is supposed to adjust the height from low to high doesn't work at all. I try to set it on high and it keeps reverting back to medium. We bought the service contract so it will go back for repair but while it's in the shop I have no vacuum cleaner.
At first I loved this machine. I loved the maneuverability of the head and the ease of the attachments. I actually did recommend it to a friend. However, over the past two - three years, the power head has failed twice. The first time Sears had to fix it twice to get it right. (I purchased the maintenance plan.) I have yet to bring it in for the second repair. This seems like excessive failure to me since I don't vacuum very often, as I have a cleaning company. I may use it once a month if the kids or dogs make an extra mess. Considering how infrequently I use it, the amount of times it's broken is too many. I would no longer recommend this product and when my maintenance agreement is up I will purchase a more reliable product.
Was working really well, but like everyone else, the wand died. Sears says the part is on backorder. No surprise there. It's been three weeks without my vacuum. I think I am just going to go and buy a new panasonic from ******. Stay away from this vacuum cleaner.

This is now about 15 years with Sears vacuums and maybe the last. It's a good vacuum when it works. Unfortunately it is a very poor quality product. In just over one year I have now had the same problem (3) times. The wand switch turns on the vacuum but no power is delivered to the lights or powerheads. That means there is no way for us to clean the dog fur from our carpets. The wand assembly needs to be replaced again. I asked them about a product exchange last time but they said two repairs for the same problem in a year is not enough. I wonder if (3) will do it. I'm giving them a chance to handle it properly this time. I'll update the review shortly.

I purchased this vacuum to replace an older version, which I really liked but had damaged after about 5-6 years by running over the cord of a blind (and also breaking the blind). Was loath to give up the old vac, but this one has stronger suction, in addition to the better tools. I have already had to change the bag after just a few weeks, and that impressed me. Would rather throw all that pet hair and bird feathers and lint out in the trash than have it still in my carpets and rugs. Overall, I have had good experiences with Sears. Even in this case, I first ordered the wrong machine online and they took it back for exchange with no argument, even though I had taken it out of the box and tried it out. Very happy with the purchase. The pet power mate tool is great. I use the paper, not the cloth, bags.
