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.

I am very pleased with this vacuum. We have a long haired dog that we need the beater head to be able to pick up the hair and it works wonderfully. So amazing how it picks up dirt and dust. Couldn't be more pleased with this vacuum. Also like that you can control the on off switch by your hand and not having to bend over to reach the canister, that's a plus and the extra long cord so I don't have to keep unplugging it so often. The long length of the hose is great too. All that extra lengths added here and there are a great plus.
We wanted a vacuum cleaner that would work on all surfaces and for drapes too. This one has it all. The tools are handy and easy to use. Haven't had it very long but so far so good. Really enjoying it. Easy to store too.

Well...we bought this to replace our 5 year old red machine. This one sucks good and bad. Meaning good suction. They have made the plastic thing at the end of the tube much thicker so it will not fit under 5 our our dressers/night stands as our older Kenmore/Panasonic unit did. We had used the hard surface attachment under this furniture, but now the tube will not fit. Further, they have added an un-needed swivel to the hard surface attachment. When using it on carpet in a tight area instead of the carpet head, it swivels to an angle. An extra step is needed to flip it into the plane of the floor. When extending my arm using the power carpet attachment instead of moving my feet, the carpet head tips up away from the carpet as the tilt has been re-engineered, so I have to move more when cleaning. The tubes have been changed so attachments from our older Panasonic/Kenmore vac will not fit. The tube has a larger diameter. Our old red machine had numerous problems: cord rewind broke after a year, light on tube became a strobe light, rubber bumper on carpet cleaner came loose, electrical connection to power carpet head became intermittent, tube extension catch broke. But hey, these machines suck good and are relatively cheap. The issue of not fitting under our furniture is a tough one, and thinking seriously of returning it. Not sure what else to buy though.
Do not buy this. The ribbon wiring in the wand will break right around the time the warranty is up, and there are no dis-assembly instructions available. A new one will set you back about $108 from sears direct. Older Kenmores are sooooo much better.
The suction and "brush" power on this are great - which they better be, given that it's the size and weight of a small dinosaur. I loved this the first time I used it - until my wrist and arm got sore after vacuuming just one room. Unfortunately, adding storage in the canister for all but the powered brush tool means that the body of the canister is giant, it weighs a ton, and it's not easy to manipulate, move around, or even pull on hard wood floors. Stairs? Forget about it without a rest period. I'm going to sell this at my next yard sale and get a new version of my last Riccar.
I have this vac for 3 1/2 years. The wand/powermate broke within first year or so but I had a 3 yr warranty that paid for at purchase. Good thing! Warranty expired last April and Sears no longer warranties vacs. I wonder why?! Now I have the same issue with the powermate/wand connection. I will never buy another Kenmore vac. Three years of light house duty for a vac to have two major problems...I will look to other brands for a replacement...
Vacuuming always seemed like such a chore until I purchased this zippy little red one. It's very lightweight, has lots of useful, easy-to-use attachments, great adjustable sucking power. Works terrifically on bare floors and rugs (I no longer have carpet). You can even use it for dusting surfaces as you go. Simply amazing! I have owned it for 5 months and am delighted - which is going some for me considering my past feelings towards vacuuming - which was dread. I'm looking forward to a long and happy relationship with my perky red vacuum cleaner!
I've had all styles of Kenmore canisters over the last 25 years. I have found that the models that are $350 or above are the ones with the features that make life easier and anything less isn't really worth the money.
I love the power of this machine and the ease of using it. The best part is that I could vacuum under the bed or other furniture. Great vacuum cleaner and great price. I would definitely recommend this product.
