Eureka 71AV - Yellow - Handheld Cleaner

Hand-held but very powerful, this Eureka model eliminates the hassle of lugging around a full-size vacuum for cleaning car upholstery, sofas, and carpeted stairs. A long 20-foot cord (which wraps for storage) provides good reach, as does the deluxe hose that stretches to three times its length. With the crevice tool on the end of the hose, this vacuum reaches into all kinds of tight places. And, with two motors, one to power the revolving brush and one for suction, the 5.5 amp vacuum cleans deeply.

Pros VERY powerful, versatile, simple to use and convenient.
Cons Just OK filtration.
Recommended it? Yes

Eureka really brought something very special to the stage here with this handheld vacuum.  Out of the box, the setup is very simple.  Unwrap the cord, plug it in and turn it on.  At first glance, this cleaner has odd proportions and looks as though it may be cumbersome to use,...

Pros POWER, size, dedicated brush motor, long cord, convienient nozzle stowage
Cons slightly heavy, corded not as convenient, but well worth it
Recommended it? Yes

Impressive power in a small package.  Corded vacuum, not as convenient as cordless but the power makes up for it.  Dedicated brush motor makes a BIG difference.  Cord is long and easily wraps around body.  Easy storage in back of the nozzle for getting into tight spots like car seats and crevices. ...
