Vacuum Cleaner Features
Upright Vacuums Bagless Design.Bagless Vacuum Cleaners were once only manufactured by the higher-end companies, like Dyson. But now this feature has migrated down to the cheap upright vacuum segment.
Even with a superior filter, bagless vacuum cleaners don't always capture all the allergens flowing through the filter, especially if the filter isn't clean. This is why manufacturers still produce low-priced upright vacuums with bags that need changing when full. Of the cheap upright vacuums, specs for the Hoover U5140-900 Tempo claim a filtration system that grabs 100% of dust mites and 99.98% of common pollens. The Eureka 4870 Boss SmartVac is the other bagged model among our top picks.
Low-Cost Upright Vacuums Filtration.When it comes to keeping your home clean, high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filtration is a highly desirable feature in any cheap vacuum cleaner. HEPA filters, dating to the late 1940s, traps more than 99.97% of the dust, bacteria, pollen, and other assorted nasty particles that zip through the filter. The Bissell 3950 Velocity Bagless (starting at $130, Amazon), Eureka 4870 Boss SmartVac (starting at $120, Amazon), and Kenmore 11 Amp Upright Vacuum 3701 (starting at $100) are all HEPA vacuum cleaners . The Hoover U5140-900 Tempo WidePath Bagged Upright (starting at $79, Amazon) and the Dirt Devil M088160 Breeze Upright Bagless (starting at $48, Amazon) have different filtration systems that trap at least 99% of harmful airborne particles. Specifications we found for the Eureka Upright Vacuum Bagless 4700 (starting at $60, Amazon) simply state it traps dust, dirt, and other small particles.
Inexpensive Vacuums Cleaning Path.The Hoover U5140-900 Tempo, Bissell 3950 Velocity, Kenmore 3701, and Eureka 4870 Boss SmartVac all feature a wide 15-inch cleaning path, which is two inches wider than the Dirt Devil M088160 Breeze and the Eureka 4700. Why does cleaning path matter? Well, a broad path design requires fewer "sweeps" across the floor and is ideal for large carpeted or bare floors. The downside, though, is that wide-path machines don't work as well in smaller rooms with tighter fits and more furniture; smaller cleaning paths are easier to maneuver around table legs, chairs, and sofas.
Don't Bother Cheap Upright Vacuums
Euro-Pro NV30 Infinity Bagless Cyclonic
Although this upright entry in the cheap market segment is described in user reviews as stylish, the consensus is that this is a poor performer with both function and design issues.
Eureka 2996AVZ Bagless
At first blush, this bagless model has all the needed features, including a HEPA filtration system, but user reviews of economical uprights complain about weak suction.
