From the 6-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.

      • 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.
      • Ideal for all types of cleaning, the variable speed control lets you adjust the vacuuming speed based on the amount of dust and dirt you're picking up.
      • 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.
      • A 6-foot hose reaches from floor to ceiling, around corners and far beyond, so no matter where you need to clean, dirt cannot escape.
      • Quick to connect and featuring an array of attachments, the CrossOver Handle rapidly transitions the vacuum from carpet to flooring, crevice cleaning to pet hair pick-up.
      • The True HEPA certified filter can be trusted to remove almost all significant allergens from air flowing through the vacuum, so you can breathe easy.

      It sucks!

      Okay, we all saw that one coming!

      We have had this vacuum for about a month now and our floors haven't been this clean for some time that's for sure!  My wife says it must be a great vacuum since the kids all seem to fight for it and are always vacuuming their rooms!  I suppose I should say thank you, Kenmore, for that !

      Now, on to the review.

       

      The good: 

      I like the power of this thing.  It is a 12 amp motor spinning the impeller and it creates more suction than I have seen in a vacuum cleaner in some time.

      I can go from carpet to wood floors simply by turning off the brushes in the head.

      It sits on the stairs allowing us to clean the carpet on the stairs (nice).

      The Pet PowerMate and Pet Upholstery Tool actually work!  This is a big plus as we have a cat and a dog and they like the furniture! 

      Of all the features, my kids love the cord retraction system the most! 

       

      The bad:

      It seems to take more effort than it should to get it to turn a corner.  The handle turns a lot before the head actually turns in the direction you want it to go so it isn't as effortless as it could be.  For me it is a design flaw that is easily forgotten when you look at all the positive aspects.

      Most vacuum cleaners will allow you to lift the power head for whatever reason you may choose and this unit does not allow for that.  When the head is unlocked you can lay the handle on the floor and the head remains flat.  If you never have to lift the head you're golden, if you do (like the wife needed to today) then you're out of luck.

       

      Summary:

      I think, for the most part, Sears/Kenmore got this one right.  Aside from a couple of nit-picky complaints I liek the way the unit functions and my favorite feature is the "Exclusive Stair Grip" which is really just a piece of foam set at an angle but at least it shows someone who uses a vacuum was involved in the design of this thing!  It works and that is what's most important.

      Mac

      NOT new and improved!

      Not happy with this vacuum...I have purchased 5 Kennmore Progressive canister vacs in the last 15 years. They were the BEST vacuum anyone could own. The older model, couldnt be "killed. The first one I purchased is still working! it is 15 years old...my son stole it from me about 7 years ago...I bought another and two years later my other son took that one...still working...this has happened 3 times. I purchased this one with great apprehension due to the obvious changes they made.  The wand is shorter, the wand is also wider, and the (couplings??) where the attachments go on are so big that they dont fit anywhere the old one did. (under dressers, behind furniture) The "easy release" foot thing  is so big that it catches on the bottom of the bed and disconnects the power-mate. It wont get into corners  the handle is not comfortable to hold...I could go on endlessly! I dont think the person who designed this vacuum ever used one. It LOOKS all pretty and "steamlined," but it is not functional. Perhaps if someone never experienced the previous model they will like it , but this vacuum was not made better. Lots of plastic...including the button that releases the attachments....(used to be metal) that little clip broke today...Ive had the unit for 3 months....will not be purchasing another!  Sears, you should have stuck with the Tried and True!

      Circuit Breaker Tripper Vac

      The vacuum performed well enough when it was running, but it kept tripping the arc-fault circuit breakers required in newer homes. Exchanged the first one to see if it was a one-off anomaly, but even the second one did the same thing. Sometimes the breaker would trip immediately, sometimes it would take a few minutes. This never happened with our older vacuums - either uprights or the older version of this Kenmore canister. Brought it back for a refund. At least the return was easy with no argument at the store.

      Great Vacuum

      I have always like Kenmore products. Bought this vacuum because of the rating it received from Consumer Reports. Works well especially on stairs.

      Plastic and cheap

      If any of the sections fail between beater bar & hose your sweeper is done! the metal tubing no longer connects to each section, a hunk of plastic holds it together? You will love the fact that the sweepers little front wheel is locked and there for if you turn it goes straight?? I am looking at replacing ir with our old sweepers it swiveled. Did you ever take off beater bar and use the wand to get in a corner? Well forget that it has a big piece of fat plastic on the end? As most of sears sweeper suction is great so there you go it "sucks"

      Great Value

      This vacuum has been an incredible improvement from the much cheaper vacuum I had before. But, it does have room for improvement. Despite the rounded front of the canister, it does get caught in doorways and the edge of furniture all of the time. Another downfall is the cheapness of the materials used; I don't expect it to last a lifetime. If you really want a quality vacuum; I would recommend spending a bit more on Filter Queen.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Good value

      Have owned similar model for a couple years now, never any problems. Bought this model for my daughter, hers kicked the bucket, and no, it was not a Kenmore. Nice machines for the money.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Sears Progressive Canister is the way to go for versatility.

      Love this vacuum, from hardwood floors to carpet and tile it does an excellent job of cleaning. It's also amazing on stairways. No more dragging a heavy vacuum up and down and around the house. We couldn't be more pleased with this product.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Couldn't Wait For It To Die !

      I Own A Housekeeping Service And I Have Purchased Many Kenmore Canisters Over The Years And This Canister Vacuum Is Got To Be The Worse One Yet. The Bulky Connection Where The Powermate Attaches Makes It Hard To Get Under Low Furniture, The Vacuum Kept Spitting Out The Hepa Filter Even When Replaced, I've Had The Powermate Fall Off When Carried Down Stairs Damaging Two Customers Stairs And Wood Floors. I Will Be Giving This Vacuum A Dumpster Funeral Today As I Have Purchased A New Kenmore Canister That I Have Used Before And Was Pleased With.
