Pros:Quiet, durable, powerful, easy to operate, reliable, easy to push power-head. Cleans very well.

Cons:Hose can be cumbersome, Power-head is loud

The Bottom Line: Take a look at this over all other makes - Electrohome, Eureka, Beam, etc. Cyclovac is working to make a name for itself and not resting on its laurels.


We shopped around thoroughly to find the right central vacuum but most appeared to be serviceable, but noisy and clunky.
I liked the Cyclovac as soon as I saw the demonstration. The 12.1 Amp motor sounded smooth and much quieter than similar competitors but with steady, powerful suction. The canister is very attractive looking. The power-head looked plain but proved to be worthy. The power of the brush pulled it right across the floor. This "self-propelling" feature seemed to make it glide easily over the demonstration mat in the store.
Once the unit was installed in our garage, we enjoyed the ease and power of the E101. Everything on the floor was quickly gobbled up in the first pass of the power-head. The vacuum itself is barely audible from inside the house. The power-head is noisy, but I've never heard one that is quiet. It didn't quite glide over our thick carpet but it doesn't take a lot of effort at all to push it in the direction of the brush force. Pulling it back takes a little more effort but you can feel the vibration working deep into the carpet to dig out the dirt. After cleaning the house with this machine, a homeowner feels proud of his floors. Like all central vacs, the hose can be cumbersome.
Back in the garage, the garage kit is great for cleaning the cars. Then, it’s time to clean out the canister. About once every 3 months (or when I get around to it), the canister is dumped out and the filter bags cleaned. It’s a dusty job but thankfully, the dual filter bags can be thrown in the washing machine. The bags sit over the air intake inside the canister while the dust settles in the bottom. It’s an efficient system but it’s not easy to get it out without making a mini dust storm.
After four years, there has not been a single problem with any of the components. I’ve even sent the power-head crashing down the basement stairs several times in my failed experiments with various hangers and it still runs like new.
