OptiFlow™ Series Performance Plus Platinum Upright Vacuum with Tri-Force® Plus Motor, Hepa Filter, On-Board Tools and Side-Hinged Door


Click here to view our latest example of Panasonic's ongoing commitment to bringing you HIGH PERFORMANCE CLEANING TECHNOLOGY with our new OptiFlow Series of Vacuum Cleaners.

New OptiFlow System Maximizes Cleaning Performance
In traditional bag compartments, air flow is restricted as the bag fills with dirt. Panasonics new OptiFlow double-wall bag chamber allows restricted air to flow through the vented bag case and into the gap between the walls. Air flows more freely to maximize cleaning performance.

Advanced Tri-Force 174; Plus Motor/Agitator
The advanced TriForce 174; Plus motor combines strong suction and high airflow to provide excellent results for carpet, bare floor and above- floor cleaning. The triple-brush metal agitator provides 50 percent more cleaning action than traditional two-row agitators.

On-Board Tools
The stretch hose, extension wand, combo brush and crevice tool are attached to the vacuum, allowing instant access to powerful, above-floor cleaning.

Automatic Carpet Height Adjustment
The MC-UG773 upright vaccum automatically adjusts to the proper setting for just about any carpet height, and the floating nozzle design adjusts to different heights without knobs or levers.

Side-Hinged Door
The side-hinged door opens wide for convenient bag and filter replacement.

MC-UG773 is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 10367.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Will suck the carpet off the floor Purchased this unit to replace 17+ year old Kenmore/Panasonic upright. Between the weight of this unit (25lbs) and its suction power, one gets quite a workout while vacuuming. The extra effort however is well worth it. The main unit , edge cleaning and included attachments all performed above my expectations. My only complaint is that it only has one short wand extension. Fortunately, the telescoping wand as well as the bags from my old Panasonic upright also fit this unit. So far I am very happy with the purchase of this vacuum.
