Electrolux ErgoSpace EL4100A Canister Vacuum Specifications
Don’t be fooled by the size of this tiny vacuum. The 13 lb. Electrolux ErgoSpace canister vacuum, with its 12 amps of power, packs a mighty punch. Its powerful, quiet motor and dust magnet floor nozzle work great on bare floors, but it also comes with a full-size carpet nozzle for low pile carpets. This tiny vacuum is packed with convenient features. It has a cleaning path of 10 inches, and the combination of the 21-inch cord, nine-inch hose, and telescopic wands give you a reach of up to 34 feet. The long cord and hose allow for a single plug-in for small apartments or condos. The cord rewinds automatically, saving you the hassle of wrapping it up yourself, and the hose easily wraps up around the canister for easy storage in tight spaces. The 3-in-1 versatile aero tool is stored on the canister and includes a crevice tool, a dusting tool and an upholstery tool. It’s installed with HEPA filtration that captures 99.97% of dust and irritants. The patented s-bag traps dust and allergens and features a closure tab for hygienic disposal. The bagged canister has a dust capacity of 2 quarts, and the electronic dust bag indicator lets you know when the bag needs to be replaced.
