Reviews

MC-CL485 is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from No canister vac is perfect but this one is close! Great suction and filter design, it traps dirt without clogging up the filter. It has a pre-filter that stops the main filter from clogging up too soon. And this canister bag-less is easier to clean than previous models. It has a good quality metal chrome extension wand that is adjustable, & good solid end connectors on the hose that don't unwind and fall out. Durable flexible hose too. Should last for a decade. The main thing that this canister vac is good for is cleaning both tile and wood floors, also good for cleaning low profile commercial grade carpet in offices and in cars and trucks. Great vac for vacuuming out the car ! This Panasonic canister vac should last for many many years, it is built very well and sturdy. I just hope there are parts for this vac down the line and Panasonic does not discontinue this model. The Main filter price to replace it is pretty reasonable. And hopefully the main filter will hold up well when cleaning it out with a compressed air nozzle ? As far as the owner's manual, Panasonic needs to add allot more information since it is way too vague in detail in use and operation. I am always impressed with the quality, performance and longevity of Panasonic vacuums.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from awful - not worth the money the "power" head stops the first second it touches any rug or carpet in the house. This machine is useless on any carpet or rug. Works reasonably well on bare floor, but that is only about 40 percent of what we need. Save your money. First Panasonic product I have ever purchased that was just terrible. Everything else has been very good quality.
