The Eureka 71B is an impressive little vacuum cleaner that really packs a punch. You will definitely want to read this review all the way through if you need a small household vacuum for your shop or residence.
Eureka 71B Review:
This Eureka vacuum model has a strong five and a half amp motor, and with a long stretch hose it is ideal for cleaning upholstery, cars, and tight spaces. It actually has two motors, one of which is used for suction and another which is used for the brush.
It also includes a special tool for cleaning off carpeted stairs that are difficult to reach with the traditional attachment, and it also has a crevice nozzle in order to reach hard to reach spaces where dust has encroached.
The Eureka 71B is bagless and uses and easily changeable dust cup to store debris. The cord is 20 feet which is sufficient for most areas. The weight is a mere seven pounds, and the product itself has dimensions in length and width about the size of sheet of paper.
Pros and Cons:
There are definitely a lot of advantages to purchasing this vacuum, and the first is that the suction power is amazing. With one motor dedicated to nothing but suction, this model is extremely powerful and does an excellent job of cleaning up pet hair trapped on furniture, which a traditional vacuum has difficulty getting.
This also works great when you are trying to clean out the nooks and crannies in your car, as the tools can get down into small crevices that would be difficult to reach with a shop vacuum.
The product itself has excellent durability, and this model is comparable to the quality of a small Dyson vacuum. The price of the Eureka 71B is also an attraction at about $60.00, or even less, if you can find it on sale online.
The only possible negative of this bagless vacuum is the weight. Some handheld vacuum cleaners may be lighter but remember that there is always a tradeoff between power and weight, so if you need something that is heavy duty, and a common complaint is the week suction power of a handheld, then this is the vacuum for you.
Excellent suction power, durability, and an attractive price point, make the Eureka 71B a must buy if you need a handheld vacuum that will actually live up to your expectations, but won’t ruin your budget with a Dyson price tag.
