Features & Specs - Electrolux JetMaxx Green EL4040[ ]
Bag Denotes whether the model has a disposable bag. A growing number of vacuums, particularly upright models, use a container that can be emptied, eliminating the bag. To capture fine-dirt particles, however, these models must use a filter (such as a HEPA filter) that can need routine cleaning or replacement. Replacement filters tend to be significantly more expensive than bags. While vacuums with bags may also use filters, the bag acts as a prefilter that helps to keep the fine-dirt filter cleaner, thus extending its performance until cleaning or replacement. Another caveat: Emptying the dustbin and cleaning a filter can be messy, and handling it may expose you to dust and other allergens.
Brush on/off An on/off switch for the rotating brush lets you stop the brush from rotating when using tools or cleaning bare floors. This helps eliminate scattered dirt on bare floors and reduces the risk of injury if the vacuum tips over during use. It also reduces the risk of damaging a carpet or the finish of a bare floor if the vacuum sits in place at the low-height setting.
Easy on/off A switch that's located on the handle or where your foot can activate it is more convenient than one on the body of the vacuum.
Manual-pile adjust Lets you adjust the height of the machine to a carpet's pile height to allow for easy movement and thorough cleaning. Adjustments are automatic on some models, but we prefer the manual control afforded by some models.
Weight (lbs.) Weight of the vacuum cleaner, to the nearest pound.
In almost 50 years I have owned nothing but an Electrolux vacuum. This is my fourth purchase and my daughter borrowed my former sweeper and called to ask me how old it was. When I told her it was almost 15 years old, she told me it had better suction than her brand new one, which had already broken down. Anyone who has ever borrowed my sweeper raves about it. It is well worth the extra money.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
