See our entire family of Sebo vacuum cleaners.
- Wants and needs a durable vacuum that provides very high filtration of allergens
- Has allergies or asthma that would benefit from S-Class (HEPA) vacuums that filter 99.97% of particles >.3 microns
- Wants to vacuum from carpet densities to bare floors easily with automatic carpet height adjustment
- Wants easy-to-change, large capacity vacuum bags with dust seal discs
- Wants a vacuum with reasonable costs for operation and filter replacement
- Wants to vacuum mostly carpeting, bare floors, stairs, hard to reach areas
- Would like a choice of many optional tools for specialized cleaning
- Sebo S-Class Filtration System - dirt is picked up and filtered through a 3-layer filter bag, electrostatic microfilter, and exhaust filter inside the Sebo vacuum cleaner. Any vacuum cleaners meeting the 'S-Class' standards are equivalent to meeting HEPA requirements to filter out 99.97% of pollens, household dust, dust mites and other allergens as small as 0.3 micrometers in size. For particles 1 micrometer and larger, the filtration rate is 100%.
- Automatic Carpet Height Adjustment -Sebo X series vacuums automatically adjust the brush roll to the correct height for cleaning any depth of carpet, rugs and bare floors.
- Easy to Change Patented 3-layer Sebo Vacuum Bags - these vacuum bags are sealable filter bags that are strong and act as a microfilter so no dust will escape when sealed; to remove bag: unlatch and remove the bag chamber lid from the vacuum and the paper bag comes out along with it. Then, place a green dust seal disk into the hole in the green plastic bag top and slip the vacuum bag out of the holder. To replace Sebo vacuum bag: simply slip a new bag into the bag holder on the vacuum lid and then latch the lid back onto the vacuum.
- Sebo Electronic cut out motor protection- automatically protects the motor from damage by items picked up. Also produces significantly more suction when using the attachments.
- Extra Low Profile - This vacuum cleaner bends to 180° to reach far under beds and furniture with a low required clearance of only 6".
- Reduced Vacuum Cleaner Operating Costs - enjoy efficient S-Class filtration without the need to replace costly HEPA filters every 6-12 months. Sebo recommends replacing tubular Microfilter and fine foam exhaust filter after using 10 - 20 vacuum bags. All can be purchased in one Sebo Service Box (sold below) that includes both filters and bags sold below.
- Headlight to illuminate cleaning path.
- 15 Inches wide with a cleaning path of 14 1/2"
- Powerful Motor - these vacuum motors produce great air flow and reduce sound level and maintenance costs thanks to 2 fans pulling together. The Sebo x1 motor, for example, is rated for 800 hours of use, which should bring over 10 years of dependability.
- Cog Type Drive Belts - the belts which allow the motor to spin the vacuum brushes are reinforced to work for the life of the vacuum, guaranteed by Sebo.
- Double Row Brush Roll - Cleans all types of carpets from short to shag, thanks to long wearing bristles designed to stand up against hard commercial vacuum use. In addition, the vacuums will tell you when brushes need to be replaced by lighting the 'check brush' indicator on the powerhead.
- System Status Lights - Indicators on the powerhead alert you to check for a full bag, blockage, or brush roll problem. Other lights show when the brush roll is being automatically raised or lowered.
- Sebo X series on-board tools - Includes three tools: crevice tool, upholstery tool and small dusting brush. All other Sebo vacuum tools, kits, and extra vacuum bags are sold separately below. Click here to view optional tools
Warranty: 7 year warranty on motor, 5 year warranty on parts and labor, lifetime warranty on belt. If under warranty, SEBO will pay to pick it up, repair it, and return it for no charge.

The Sebo X series vacuum cleaners have been a favorite of ours and our customers for many years. These upright vacuums pack superior suction, first class filtration, and user friendly features into a lightweight upright design. Sebo also offers a wonderful variety of optional tools that can be purchased separately to handle any cleaning task. We have yet to be disappointed by a Sebo vacuum cleaner.
Summary:At a first glance the X series boxy design may look a little dated, but once you use this vacuum you will know why its design has not been changed since first being introduced to the market. This vacuum works phenomenally with strong suction power that picks up embedded dirt and lifts carpet pile on the first pass. It also has a top rated filtration system that does not exhaust dust back into the room.
The X series top the charts for user friendliness. They are lightweight for an upright and have the ability to lay flat on the floor to easily get under furniture. They have an integrated wand, hose and 3 full size accessory tools that offer an outstanding nine foot reach for above floor cleaning. And as if that is not enough, they provide seamless transitions from carpet, to bare floors, to area rugs with no need for manual adjustment. The X series uses electronic sensors which automatically adjust the height of the power head as needed for optimal suction on any floor surface. However, though this vacuum is safe and effective for use on bare flooring, we recommend using a parquet floor brush with natural bristles for highly polished or delicate bare floors such as tile, parquet or hard wood.
Everyone who has tested the Sebo X series upright vacuum cleaner has given it rave reviews. Over and over, these are voted a hands down favorite upright vacuum for their lightweight, versatile and easy to use design. We have sold Sebos for many years with zero complaints and very little returns. That is a pretty impressive track record. These are powerful, upright vacuum cleaners and are built to last for 15 to 20 years.
