We took the Eureka SuctionSeal Vacuum for a test run and we’re giving away a Eureka SuctionSeal Vacuum to 1 lucky ClassyMommy.com reader.
What we loved about it: This vacuum is 1/2 the price of a Dyson at $149. Fabulous! And yes the suction proved itself – we’re talking CRAZY awesome suction for cleaning power. I’d say that YES it lived up to the hype in the marketing materials saying that the new Air Speed Technology of the Eureka Suction Seal had BETTER suction power than the Dyson DC41 at half the price.
Honestly this bagless vacuum became instantly filled with incredible amounts of dirt since it was sucking better than any vacuum we’ve ever used at our house. We’re talking insane amounts of dirt here – after just 2 uses we needed to empty it! If you have a pet and lots of extra dirt, I think this might be the vacuum for you. I’ve never seen suction like this!
Why the great suction? Eureka’s popular and exclusive AirSpeed Technology. Here’s an explanation of it from their materials: ”AirSpeed Technology uses two wide, smooth tubes with limited bends and turns, allowing more air to pass through the vacuum for powerful suction – unlike most vacuums that propel air through a long nozzle and hose system full of twists and texturing.”
The cons: This vacuum is extremely heavy and far more difficult to lift for me than our Dyson or other lightweight vacuums we’ve owned. Also, the cord was far shorter than that on our Dyson which required us to do lots of unplugging and re-plugging which we found annoying. We have a big home with a very large finished basement and regular downstairs living area in our Kitchen/Family room so the cord length didn’t work for us the way we’d like it to or we’ve become accustomed to with our current Dyson and the weight of the Vacuum was a big obstacle for me as far as my ability to use the vacuum in various parts or floors of our home.
