Best Upright Vacuum List Released by Vacuum Cleaner Advisor
Seattle, WA, March 29, 2012 --( Finding the best upright vacuum cleaner can be a difficult job. There are hundreds on the market today and many of them just aren’t up to the task, despite their marketing claims to the contrary. Vacuum Cleaner Advisor's just released Best Upright Vacuum list will help consumers make the right buying decision.

Manufacturers who made the cut include Hoover, Miele, Euro-Pro, Dyson and Bissell. In all, ten upright vacuums are on the list, ranging in price from about $200 to $800. The models were chosen based on cost, consumer ratings, features and warranty.

The #1 upright vacuum cleaner on the list is Euro-Pro`s Shark Navigator Lift Away Pro. This bagless upright gets stellar reviews from owners and works well on both carpet and bare floors. It is also powerful, lightweight (at 14 lbs) and very easy to maneuver. In addition, it includes the “Lift-Away” feature, which is a lightweight portable canister with carry handle. The canister provides easy above-floor access and even has the ability to clean automobile interiors. The Shark Navigator Lift-Away Pro can be found at some outlets for about $200 and carries a lengthy 5-year warranty.

In second place is the Hoover UH30010COM. This was last year’s Best Upright Vacuum. Like the Euro-Pro it has a 5-year warranty and excellent consumer ratings. The UH30010COM is extremely light at about 12 lbs and it has HEPA filtration, making it a great choice for those suffering from asthma or allergies. This bagged vacuum comes with a portable canister unit with shoulder strap for getting into hard to reach areas and for above-floor cleaning. It should be noted that the brushbar on this model has no on/off switch, however. Prices vary from store to store, but it can often be found for just over $200.

The Miele Cat and Dog comes in at third place. This is a well-built machine and consumer ratings are fantastic. The Miele Cat and Dog also ranks #1 on Vacuum Cleaner Advisor’s Best Pet Hair Vacuum list due to its ability to effectively deal with pet hair. This bagged upright features variable suction controls, a filter with active charcoal to help remove odors, an extra long 39 foot power cord, and a 7-year motor warranty. The Cat and Dog is manufactured in Germany and is more expensive than most of the other uprights on the list. It usually sells for about $650. Some owners find the machine a little heavy, as it weighs in at 22 lbs.

The remaining vacuums on the list are the Hoover Commercial Elite C1404, Dyson DC25 Animal, Shark Navigator Lift Away, Bissell Healthy Home 16N5, Miele Bolero, Dyson DC41 and Miele Twist.
