Great power the cleans my rugs very well. The light really helps in dark corners. Self adjusting for my hardwood floors. The rubber wheels prevent scratching of my hardwood floors. I have spent a lot more money in the past for vacuum cleaners that could not rival Prolux 7000.Read More
I love the fact this machine is easy to manuver, It works very well on picking up cat hair(I have 3) on different types of carpet,sculptures,low pile, area rugs. and linoleum. I love the long cord allowing me to move from room to room with little replugging. I looked at quite a few machines. This one has very smooth lines. easy to get to bag (I didn't want bag less). In the price range I was willing to pay. I love the brush attachment!! It is easy to assemble for use on my upholsted furniture and carpeted stairs. It too does an excellent job of removing cat hair. Did I mention it is a pretty candy apple red!Read More
We have three border collies in our house, and the shedding, mud, pondscum, and whatever else they dredge in tends to break vacuums. When our last one bit the dust, we decided to look for something that would last longer. We wanted a bagged upright, with a simple/serviceable design, long warranty, and of course good capability as a vacuum. After reading several online reviews, we decided to give the Prolux 7000 a try. We received it a couple days later. It required minimal assembly and was ready to use in about five minutes. Our first test was to clean up all the messes that had accumulated in the couple weeks we spent looking for a new vacuum, and it delivered wonderfully. What would have taken ten passes with our old vacuum took one or two with the new one. We have a mixture of tile and carpet in our house. We really like that the vacuum isn't a bagless one. They're the most common type nowadays, but after owning both types I feel that the bagless thing is a gimmick. Our allergies have been significantly better, and the vacuum itself stays much cleaner. After a few months, my wife complained that it wasn't picking on our tile floor anymore. I started investigating and was impressed by the simplicity of the design. There was a clog in one of the hoses, but it was easy to get to and only took a minute to fix. Clogs have been a regular occurrence with every single vacuum we've ever had, but they've never been as easy to correct as with the Prolux and seem to occur much less often. More importantly, though, I don't see anywhere a clog could form that would be difficult to get to or fix. I attribute this mostly to the bagged vs bagless design, once again. I highly recommend this vacuum. It vacuums great, is serviceable, and has a seven year warranty. A++Read More
Before we bought our Prolux we used a Filter Queen. Tired of hauling a canister around, and being subjected to very expensive replacement parts, I did my research for a good upright vacuum. Prolux fit the bill with many positive reviews and a great price. I wanted something with a powerful motor like the Filter Queen, and I am not disappointed one bit! It cleans and combs the carpet beautifully, even worn down carpet! Changing the bag is a snap to! For its size it handles well. Anyone with minor back pain and shoulder pain can maneuver the Prolux with ease and comfort. The attachments it comes with are wonderful, they really make cleaning easier, plus they are so easy to switch out. The hose stretches a good distance and it's not difficult to use or put back. I am enjoying it, even my children! They actually don't mind vacuuming now!Read More
This vacuum is impressive! After using it for several weeks I am very pleased with its functionality. It was easy to assemble and has a great look and color. The power of this upright is truly phenomenal on low and higher napped carpets and on hard surfaces. I like that I can adjust the suction power so that I can do my smaller throw rugs without them getting sucked up into the beater brushes and that also allows me to use the wand to clean my blinds and drapes. It is extremely easy to change to the wand and cleaning accessories when needed and they are stored right on the vacuum. I personally like the longer cord as that allows me to go from room to room and up the stairs without having to change plug-ins which saves me time and steps. I do love the lighted path the vacuum provides which I have never had before on any upright that I have owned. I haven't had to change the vacuum bag or any of the parts but I did ck that out prior to using it the first time and managed diassembly and reassembly in a very short time! The sealed hepa system is great in eliminating the dust that usually accompanies most vacuums. With the sturdy construction and long warranty I am confident that this product will serve me for a very long time. I am so impressed I am contemplating gifting my daughter with a Prolux 7000!Read More
My first impression of this vacuum came while I was unpacking it. I liked the color, a Candy Apple Red Metallic. When I got it unpacked, which was not difficult, I looked at the fit and finish of the vacuum's pieces / parts and did not notice any flaws. The color was smooth and even and all of the parts, plastic and metal, were nicely finished with no sharp edges or flash / burrs from the plastic molding process. And everything fit together properly. The friction fit cleaning tools are well made and finished as well, and everything connects properly and securely. A well made, solid vacuum. I can see why it has such a good warranty, and it is an amazing deal for the price. Note: you will need a flat blade screwdriver to attach the handle, but a quarter will work if you don't have a screwdriver handy. After using it extensively for several days I still like it. It is probably the quietest vacuum that I've ever used. I don't feel like I need hearing protection to keep from hurting my ears, as compared to many of the vacuums I've owned / used. The stretch hose does have a tendency to cause the vacuum to tip, or to "follow" me, when I'm using it at close to its full extension, but this seems to be typical for upright vacuums of this style. It does seem to be less prone to tipping than the other uprights I've owned / used, though. But, with the (VERY convenient) extendable main wand, which securely locks in place where you want it, and the removable extension wand attached, you do have almost 12 feet of reach. So using the vacuum with the hose fully extended was not necessary for me. And with the 30 foot power cord I could vacuum a large area before having to switch to another outlet which is real convenient also. The vinyl wheels roll easily on all surfaces, and quietly on wood and other hard surfaces, and it is quite easy to maneuver. The carrying handle on top of the tank is comfortable to use and the vacuum is well balanced at that point, making it easy to carry when needed. And the attachments all fit neatly in the back of the vacuum, with the Mini Turbo Head stored securely and unobtrusively on the side, so everything is always right there handy when I need it. After giving my home a good top-to-bottom cleaning, I'm still using the 1st bag and the Full Bag indicator still has not come on, the HEPA filter still looks clean, and the vacuum still has good suction. And speaking of suction, the adjustable suction control is handy for reducing the suction when needed. It was a bit stiff to work at first, but it has smoothed out with use and works much easier now. The bags, HEPA Filter and post filter are all easy to get to for changing when needed, and the slide latches on the bottom plate make removing it a breeze when you need to change the belt or clear a clog. No screwdriver required, and NO lost screws either! Another plus is that when the beater bar brushes wear down, you can replace just the brushes, without having to replace the whole beater bar assembly. The bottom plate has channels for edge cleaning on both sides, and they seem to work quite well, whether on bare floors or carpet. And the Prolux 7000 really surprised me when I used it on my one bare floor, it didn't throw crumbs and other debris around, but sucked them right up, something I've never had an upright vacuum do before. The only Con I found is that when the handle is in the low position, actually laying flat on the floor, which I need it to do to vacuum under my bed, the nozzle/beater bar lifts up just enough that it does not contact the carpet. You have to hold the handle about 14 in.above the floor to have the nozzle/beater bar be in contact with the carpet, limiting this vacuum's ability to clean under furniture that is low and/or wide, like my bed. All in all, I would have given the Prolux 7000 a RESOUNDING 5 Star rating, except for that Con. But, because of the way I use my vacuum, I can only give it a 4 Star rating.Read More

how does it work with heavy pile carpet? I cant move a dyson on our carpet
Hello rjmj, thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately, the information you have requested is currently unavailable. We will continue to try and answer this for you. You will receive an email notification once an answer is posted. Have a great day.
Does the beater bar stop rotating when the attachments are being used?
Hello ken28, thank you for your inquiry! That is a great question! When the vacuum is snapped in the upright position (which is what most people will do when they use the tools) then yes the beater bar will stop spinning. When you release it from the upright position then it will start spinning again. I hope this helps. Happy shopping!
