Upright vacuums are by far the most popular for at-home use. Many people like the portability along with the power offered in such a tool. This being said, many people are on a budget and are looking for something that's able to get the job done right the first time without leaving them with no money in the bank. Taking all this into consideration, the Eureka Boss Smart-Vac Upright HEPA 4870MZ incorporates all of that into one solid and hardworking vacuum.
One of the most loved features is the Power Paw accessory which actually is removable and able to life engrained pet hair as if by magic from just about anything! On top of this, another attachment that's help the 4870MZ gain its name is the Riser Visor Tool. Even though the name doesn't imply it, it actually has 7 different adjustable heights that allow the rolling brush to easily clean staircases, even the edges!
While all of this might sound great, many people find that the cord is often too short for their liking and hinders the use of the vacuum. If this sounds like you, don't worry because the 4870MZ has a 30 foot cord on top of the extendable hose which is able to extend more than five times its original length to aid in your cleaning endeavors!
As you might imagine, the vacuum is covered by a one year limited warranty and offers an extra bag and a Type-R belt just encase you need them. Please keep in mind that there are various other accessories included, but the ones listed above seem to be the most popular. There's actually an option for directing the air for deep engrained dirt or for surface dirt as well, so you're able to adapt to any level of filth.
- Great at cleaning up after pets
- Able to adapt to multiple floor types
- Very inexpensive
- Has a built in filtration system for keeping fine particles out of the air
- Includes a thermostat safety option which will auto turn off in case of overheating
- Fairly heavy and hard to maneuver
- Uses replaceable filters, so that adds cost to use of the appliance
- Received complaints about a loud noise level
- Controls layout is non-intuitive
All this being said, you should keep in mind that the Eureka Boss Smart-Vac Upright HEPA 4870MZ is a vacuum for those on a budget. By no means is this top of the line equipment, but it is able to get the job done. If you often have trouble maneuvering appliances, then you should be aware of the weight of this particular vacuum and how it's not that easy to steer.
Again, keep in mind that this is basically designed to be a bear-bones vacuum, so there's not many added bells and whistles. I wouldn't recommend this for someone who runs a cleaning service, but for someone that cleans only a few times a month, this should get the job done for you!
