Features of Electrolux Twin Clean Bagless Canister Vacuum Cleaner
Bagless: Dust container hold 1.2 qt. of dry debris. Save money on maintenance by not having to constantly replace vacuum bags.
Easy-empty dust container: Using the carry handle and container release button, remove dust container from canister. Push back the lid release button and the top will pop open allowing for easy emptying.
Excellent filtration and sealed system design: This vacuum was 99.99% efficient at filtering the particles through the exhaust filter while vacuuming. There was no leakage through the sides of the canister.
Self-cleaning dual HEPA filters: With twin HEPA dust filters, you always have one filter in use and an inactive clean one ready to replace the dirty filter. The filter indicator light will flash when the active dust filter is dirty, signaling it is time to switch the filters. The self-cleaning process requires you to turn the top dial on the inactive filter clockwise in the chamber and the vacuum will clean the filter. When the filter is clean the filter indicator will stop flashing and vacuum will turn off. About once a year when the filter indicator begins to flash more frequently, the filters will need to be removed and washed by hand.
HEPA exhaust filter: Besides the dual HEPA filters, this vacuum also features a HEPA exhaust filter for excellent particulate control while vacuuming. This is the only filter that needs to be replaced. Replace every 1-2 years depending on use.
Powerful: 12 amp motor provides plenty of power to the vacuum cleaner and to the power brush providing great suction for the deep cleaning of thick carpets.
2 Suction speeds: High and low suction speeds allow you to adjust suction to appropriately clean all carpet types and rugs efficiently. Suction controls are located on the handle at your finger-tips with suction indicator lights on the canister.
360° Swivel hose: Allows for easy movement with 360° swivel at both ends of the hose where it attaches to the canister and wand. This 7’ hose will not get tangled up.
Finger tip controls: The controls for power on/off, suction speed and brush roll on/off are all located on the vacuum handle and are nicely labeled. The power brush height adjustment and wand release controls are easy to use foot pedals located on the back of the power brush.
Full-sized Power brush: Powered by a separate motor this power brush with a 14” cleaning path and edge cleaning offers superb deep cleaning of carpets. Adjust the suction speed to low for delicate carpets or rugs, or just turn the brush roll off to use power brush with straight suction for bare floors. Power brush features a headlight and step on foot pedal to adjust the brush height to high, medium or low.
Other cleaning tools: Includes a hard floor brush which easily attaches to the wand to safely clean delicate hard floor surfaces, dust brush and crevice nozzle are conveniently located under the handle for quick and easy use on the go, an upholstery nozzle is also included but not stored on-board.
Adjustable telescopic wand: Extend or shorten the telescopic wand by pushing the release button in the direction of the power brush and simultaneously adjusting the length of the telescopic wand. There are release buttons at both ends of the telescopic wand. Either button may be used to adjust the wand length.
Automatic cord rewind: 21’ cord automatically rewinds with just a quick tug.
We were very happy with how easily this vacuum snapped together. Every piece and every tool clicks into place and has straightforward, easy to use release buttons.
When we tested the vacuum for filtration efficiency and air quality while vacuuming we were very impressed to see that it did not release any particles back into the air.
The dual HEPA filters are a very neat feature allowing one filter to be in use while a clean one waits. These washable HEPA filters save in replacement costs and it only takes seconds to switch the filter cartridge making the clean filter active and starting the cleaning process for the dirty one. Plus you do not have to guess when it is time to switch the filters. This vacuum has an indicator light to let you know when it is time.
A bagless vacuum saves in replacement costs and helps out the environment by not adding to the landfills.
Powerful power brush works great on all types of carpets with two suction speeds (high and low) and three different height adjustments (low, medium and high) to make sure your carpet or rugs receive the appropriate cleaning.
We were glad to see that the power brush parks on its own. All too often large power heads will tip over. This one has a neat feature where you can turn the vacuum wand to the right when it is in the parked position for more balance.
We were surprised and happy to see that this vacuum comes standard with not only the full-sized power brush but also a horsehair hard floor brush with wheels for added mobility and two park positions – one on the back of the canister for in use parking and one on the bottom of the canister for use in the storage position.
All the controls for this vacuum are effortless to use – power, suction and brush roll controls are all at your finger tips and easy to reach foot pedals release the wand and adjust the height of the power brush.
The dust brush and crevice nozzle are carried on-board right under the vacuum handle allowing us uninterrupted above-floor cleaning capabilities.
Large rubber coated wheels on the canister protect your floors and allow the canister to move along easily. The power brush also has a rubber bumper guard which is great for those of us who do not always vacuum with the utmost care or attention.
We found the vacuum to be on the loud side and as you would expect the volume increased when the brush roll is on.
Dust particles escape into the air when you pop the top of the dust canister open to empty. Not good for those who are sensitive to dust.
We also noticed that the area underneath the dust container was dusty.
It seemed strange to us that only two of the three accessory tools were carried on board. The upholstery nozzle does not have a spot to be carried on board.
The term "Self-Cleaning" is a little misleading. You have to rotate the dirty dust filter clockwise in the inactive chamber for it to get cleaned.
The Twin Clean makes another good addition to our vacuum cleaner line up offering new features. For those who want a canister vacuum that has minimal maintenance costs and is a cinch to use, the Twin Clean bagless canister is your vacuum. Though we do not recommend bagless vacuum cleaners for allergy sufferers because of the dust and debris that escape when you empty the dust container, this vacuum does exhibit excellent particle control while vacuuming. This vacuum has all the right floor tools and accessories to be able to satisfy all your cleaning needs. As long as you don’t mind the noise of powerful suction and can handle emptying a dust container, we are sure you will be very pleased with the Electrolux Twin Clean canister vacuum cleaner.
