OptiFlow™ System Maximizes Cleaning Performance

In traditional bag compartments, air flow is restricted as the bag fills with dirt. Panasonic's 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.

Dual Motor System

The dual motors allow for more consistent cleaning performance and extend belt life.

Dirt Sensor

The built-in electronic dirt sensor helps you clean with confidence by finding hidden dirt.

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.

Bare Floor Option

A convenient handle switch shuts off the agitator for safe bare floor cleaning.

Side-Hinged Door

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