When looking for a powerful carpet-cleaning vacuum cleaner, the most common assumption is over-priced equipment. The Eureka NEU182A PowerSpeed Vacuum Cleaner proves otherwise. With a little less than $100, you have a powerful and versatile vacuum cleaner.
The Eureka PowerSpeed vacuum cleaner is certainly designed to make cleaning easier. With a weight of 10 pounds only, it’s easy to maneuver and carry from one room to another.
I also found it pretty effective at cleaning awkward spaces like the ceiling corners, shelves, and stairs because the handle and the hose are detachable.
In addition, the hose is extremely flexible as it can stretch up to three times. When coupled with the long handle (7 feet), you enjoy a lengthier reach when cleaning vast spaces. I also love that the hose is made from a see-through material that makes it easy to spot a clog.
What stands out about this vacuum cleaner is its large dust cup. With a capacity of 4.1 L, it holds more debris, so I don’t need to empty it regularly.
As if that’s not enough, emptying the dust cup is quite easy- simply push the button, and the cup dislodges from the vacuum.
What’s more, the equipment has five height adjustment settings allowing you to clean low to medium pile carpets, hard floors, and high pile rugs. It also comes with a few attachments that make cleaning much easier:
- 7-inch crevice tool: It helps clean hard-to-reach areas like heating vents
- Dusting brush: It cleans delicate items like lampshades, window blinds, and drapes
- Mini-brush roll tool: For removing pet hair and cleaning the stairs
- Upholstery brush: For removing pet hair from chairs and couches
Ease of use
When setting up a vacuum cleaner, I always have my toolset ready to install and screw parts. Surprisingly I had a different experience with the Eureka NEU182A PowerSpeed Vacuum Cleaner.
I hardly used any tools, and it was set up in a matter of minutes. A simple push of the handle into the body and the device is locked into place.
The device doesn’t disappoint when it comes to cleaning. It has five cleaning settings, four for deep cleaning different carpet pile heights, and the last for bare floors.
The suction is impressive, deep cleaning hard floors, carpets, and area rugs in a single pass. However, I found it a little powerful for lightweight rugs as it sucked in the rug even on the lowest cleaning setting.
Admittedly the Eureka NEU182A PowerSpeed Vacuum Cleaner is a steal. Its powerful suction, handy accessories, lightweight construction, and flexible design certainly make cleaning a house easy.
However, its lack of advanced features might be a bummer to some users, and if it’s important, it’s best to look for a more advanced model.
The Eureka NEU182A PowerSpeed Vacuum Cleaner is a solid buy for anyone looking for a versatile cleaning device. The device is mainly designed to clean carpets, but the few attachments mean it can clean other floor types.
However, I wasn’t too impressed with the noise it produced when I was cleaning. The noise is high-pitched and can be unbearable. If you’re determined to purchase it, consider your noise tolerance.
