Cleans faster with the wide 15 inch cleaning path provided with this vacuum cleaner
To clean the vertical portion of your stairs this vac features a Power Paw Turbo that paws at all that stubborn pet hair making cleaning this part of your stairway easy
You have the option of having all of the suction power directed to the 15 inch wide floor brush to pick up dirt and more from deep within the carpet or directing it to the hose for those hard to reach surfaces and for cleaning above the floor such as the walls, ceiling, chairs, couches, etc. with the Air Selector Switch.
Other onboard tools include a stretch hose that can stretch to up to 5 times its unstretched length, an extra long 30 foot long electrical cord so you don't have to keep switching to different outlets.
Vac measures 15 inches x 11 inches x 45 inches and comes complete with a one year limited warranty
Removes deeply embedded dirt and pet hair much better than most vacs
Works at about the level of a Dyson but at 1/5 the cost
Very easy to assemble when you get it home
7 height adjustments which will give you perfect suction when adjusted to the correct height for your carpet
Suction is so great that you have to be careful not to get too close to drapes or anything you don't want sucked up, Not Kidding!
Very reasonably priced unit
Vac is rather heavy to carry
Rather noisy, but that is what you give up for all that great suction you get for cleaning
Some parts are made of plastic
Rather difficult to use foot pedal to release the vac from the upright position
The lever for switching from carpet to bare floors has to be pushed very hard to engage
Doesn't work as well on bare floors, but excellent on carpets
Hose could be a little longer, but this is a rather minor issue
Summary for Eureka 4870MZ:
This is an excellent vacuum, very reasonably priced, great for getting your carpet and furniture to looking like new. Fantastic at removing pet hair, doesn't clog up while vacuuming. Unit is a bit heavy, for that reason I wouldn't recommend for someone who cannot lift heavy items. Is noisy, but not a big issue. Performs about as well as a Dyson at a fraction of the cost. Some minor issues, but nothing too major.
