Cyclonic Compression for Easy Dirt Disposal

Powered by a high-efficiency 11-Amp motor, the Transform upright sends dirt, dust and debris into the hourglass dust cup where it's separated from incoming air and compressed. When full, the simple push of a button opens a bottom-drop panel for quick, clean disposal. The dust cup and chamber filter can be washed for easy maintenance.
Two Vacuums in One With the Transform vacuum, you get the power, versatility and convenience of a high-performance upright, plus the range, reach and ease of a detachable, portable canister and on-board attachments. Weighing just 17 lbs., the JetForce canister can used, moved and carried easily throughout the house, and stored neatly in practically any closet or home utility space.
Extend Your Reach With on-board attachments like an ergonomic, QuickDraw II extension cleaning wand with 10 ft. reach and pre-mounted dusting brush, you can conveniently clean on stairs, reach high ceilings, get behind furniture, in the crevices between appliances and more. Plus, a Pet Air Turbine Brush quickly removes stubborn pet hair and dirt throughout the house, and in car and truck interiors, too.
Deep Clean Soft Carpets with Air Infusion Soft, plush carpets can be hard to clean. Their denser fibers can restrict airflow into ordinary vacuum nozzles, drawing them tightly into the carpet, locking suction and leaving harmful dirt behind. With Transform, a uniquely vented Air Infusion nozzle draws and directs extra air volume into the system for enhanced ease of use, especially on softer, tighter carpet fibers.
Swivel Steering for Quick, Easy Cleaning The quiet, low-profile Transform nozzle is also highly agile. Its swift, swivel steering capability pivots nimbly around and under furniture and beds, and glides around corners for quicker, more effortless cleaning. Plus, wherever you use it, the swivel nozzle's wide 13-in. cleaning path lets you cover more floor surface area in far less time.
Safe for Every Floor Surface This advanced system comes with automatic height adjustment to conveniently raise or lower nozzle and agitator for optimal cleaning on different carpet/rug types and styles. Transform also excels on bare floors to safely and quickly remove dirt, dust, crumbs, sand and other debris from tile, stone, wood, linoleum, laminate and other hard floor surfaces.
HEPA Media Filtration Filter while you clean, and maintain a healthier indoor environment for everyone with the included HEPA media filtration system. As you vacuum, this high-efficiency filter instantly eliminates tiny particles, including allergens, irritants and pollutants, from carpets and rugs, floors, furniture and interior spaces, and returns cleaner exhaust into the home in return.

MC-UL955 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Vacuum Cleaner I love Panasonic Appliances. Own many for more than a decade and they all work flawlessly. My other Vacuum is a MC - UL915. The best machine on the planet as far as I am concerned. Built like a tank, easy to clean the canister and filters and most importantly it has a telescopic wand! That said I bought this Vacuum cleaner in hopes of replacing my other Panasonic. And here are the features that impressed me 1) Swiveling nozzle! 2) Suction control on the nozzle that helps with carpets with dense fibers! Very important feature as I have a Dyson that will stick to my carpet like a magnet and there is no way around it. Dyson has just release this feature on UK markets but Panasonic already thought of it! Great. 3) Cord clip on the machine so it is not all over the place. 4) Light weight 5)Excellent suction power. 6) Easy to clean canister and filter. However, I have bare floors and I use a floor brush with my other Panasonic often and also have an excellent floor brush attachment. But this Panasonic does not have a Telescopic wand and it is too short! So cleaning anything above(like AC vent grills) and the floor is impossible to say the least. Wonder why Panasonic though of everything but forgot this very important feature is beyond me. They did make this in their previous flagship machine the MC - UL915! Hence I ended up returning the item as that was personally important to me. If you don't care about the telescopic wand, then this might just be the best machine for the money!
