Pros:Great Suction

Cons:Small dirt cup
Filter needs to be cleaned often

The Bottom Line: Really gets the stairs clean with brushes and great suction.  Great for every home.


When it comes to vacuuming the stairs, there are only a few options.  You can try to use the Dust Buster to get the steps as it is light-weight, but it does not have moving brushes so it really doesn’t do too much.  You have the option of bringing out the full-size upright vacuum and using the attachments on the stairs, but again, the moving brushes on the vaccum may not be strong enough to pickup lint and pet hair.  Well, this Eureka handheld vacuum for $43 at Amazon was what has fulfilled that need I have yet to complete with my cleaning. 

You get over 5 AMPS of cleaning power for the suction and a separate motor for the brushes, meaning this thing really goes at the dust and dirt in the stairs like you wouldn’t believe.  There are the settings to turn off the brushes or to turn them on.  I would assume for the furniture it makes more sense to turn off the brushes (still has amazing suction power).  In addition, the light-weight yellow vacuum comes with a flexible hose with a crevice attachment (note that both fit on the little vacuum itself which makes it easy to not misplace the parts and in easy reach).  The power cord is 20 feet long which is more than enough to conquer the typical staircase. 

Now, onto the cleaning…This vacuum was amazing.  The brushes started to pick up a lot of dust that I have been missing with the Dust Buster and the Vacuum hoses.  The clear dirt cup on the vacuum (located on the top) shows you what you are picking up as you go along the stairs.  In addition, there is a pretty nice filter on the cup to prevent dirty emissions from coming out of the vacuum.  It does get dirty pretty quick, so make sure you empty the dirt cup and clean the filter well after each use.  One trick is I use my Shop-Vac to clean off the filter after each use as I am not sure I want to wash the filter each time.  It has the same sort of filter that the Dust Buster has on it, so it’s really easy to clean the filter overall.   A Neat feature is the “visor” on the brushes flips up so you can also do the side of the stairs perpendicular to what part of the step you use when walking up and down.  This part is usually neglected so it’s nice to see an engineer noticed this part of the stairs is rarely vacuumed and made this change. 


The results of this vacuum were very impressive.  The Crevice tool does wonders on my car and it almost seems this little yellow power-packed vacuum should be necessary in every household.  It is hard to find a handheld vacuum with powered brushes, and at this price, it is definitely worth buying.
