Right-Hand Battlemate in 2007 Flea Fight: Eureka Boss Smartvac 4870

 

In March 2007, our home was disgustingly infested by fleas. Not willing to outright poison our home, our pets and ourselves, we desperately researched alternatives online and decided to try out some "natural" flea remedies, including Only Natural Pet ...

Suction (wah-POW!) ; Super Long Cord ; Attachments Galore ; Iron-Armor Filters ; Price Can't Be Beat

Nothing Substantial

Right-Hand Battlemate in Last Year's Flea Fight: Eureka Boss Smartvac 4870

 

Around March last year, our home was disgustingly infested by fleas. Not willing to outright poison our home, our pets and ourselves, or to expose ourselves to obviously dangerous toxins, we desperately researched alternatives online and decided to try...

Cheaply Made

 

I had done extensive research before I bought this vacuum. I purchased it in 2004 and not even a year later it was falling apart. The plastic piece that holds the hose broke and now I just flop the hose over the front of the vacuum, resting on the ...

Good suction, reaches high places with extentions

Plastic construction, falling apart

Had Many Vacuums before and I'm so glad I bought this one

 

Having bought many vacuums over the last 28 years of marriage, I am so glad I bought this Eureka Boss. I would never be able to afford the expensive Dyson's and such. I had read all the reviews on so many vacuums and many talked about how the Eureka ...

Sucks awesome, easy to use tool attachments, bagged so it's cleaner

Hose stretches and drags sometimes. Barefloor/Carpet switch is tricky.

Great features...but maybe not the best for shaggy carpet

 

After my last vacuum bit the dust...I bought this on a whim and from a recommendation from my mom, and also Consumer Reports...(when my usually thorough-research-happy husband was out of town). Did I make the right choice? Floor option Very ...

Suction is great and the switching between floor and hose is easy

Heavy and possibly damages longer carpet threads

I love vacuuming again!

 

I love vacuuming again! Thanks to my new Eureka Samrtvac I have reclaimed my love for vacuuming, and clean carpet. After my old vacuum died and went to vacuum heaven it was time to research and find a new one. I had three requirements for my new ...

great suction, decent price, nice tool storage

heavy

The Boss is the Boss of all vacuums at any price!

 

As with most long-time married couples, we have had many vacuums over the years, mostly Eureka with a couple of Hoovers interspersed along with one single disaster called Dirt Devil. So when our 10 year old Eureka began to make funny noises,...

Everything, it all works just as claimed by Eureka. And, it is QUIET!

Foot operated handle release is still a bit tight, but that will surely loosen up.

Really Picks Up Dog Hair

 

I purchased this vacuum at target.com five months ago after reading epinion reviews and consulting Consumer Reports. My first choice was the Dyson, however, I wasn't willing to pay that price, so settled for the Boss. I purchased it specifically for...

Great for dog hair Fair priceConvenient tool storagePowerful motor

Heavy and clunkyDifficult to tip handle back via foot button

Great vacuum for the money! Simply put!

 

I got this vacuum for my other place which has only one large room of carpet and really, I got it for all the wrong reasons, but was pleasantly surprised. I got it because it looked cool and was to be in a corner of the room, so I didnt want an ugly ...

Great carpet vacuuming, long cord, good attachments.

Cheap plastic body, Manufacturer doesnt make parts easily available for long.

5 Stars for this Vacuum-You Must be a Little Off!

 

Well I gotta tell you. I research Consumer Reports before I buy anything over fifty bucks. I like to get value for my hard earned money. This one was rated fairly high so thought I'd go for it; it was $100 bucks cheaper than the Kenmore that came in ...

Good suction. Does well on carpet & bare floors. Supposedly out cleans Dyson 60%. Inexpensive.

Very difficult to switch between carpet & hard floors.HEAVY!Quality not so great.
