MC-CG985 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from a Load of improvements We've enjoyed the first Panasonic canister vac for about 20 years - very reliable, durable, useable. AND we're still using it around the shed and shop, but wanted a hepa filtering version. This is the upgraded, updated version in spades: flow-thru air path, longer cord and hose, telescoping extension tube, power controls on handle, easier rewind lever, to name a few improvements. However,have not found good source of the ultra-low particle-size dust bag, Type c-19 MC-V295H, yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beyond superb If it's possible to get excited about a vacuum, I'm elated ! This is a machine that dreams are made of. Great power and every imaginable feature. I've had an upright Panasonic for over 20 yrs and I can only hope that this beauty serves me as well. It's one of the best appliances I've ever purchased !! I LOVE Panasonic!!!!
