PowerBlast 8482; Cord-Activated Filter Cleaning Prevents Loss of Suction
A blast of air cleans the filter every time you turn on your AeroBlast 8482; vacuum. This proprietary technology enables the vacuum to always operate at full power without dirt being trapped and clogging up the filter. And Panasonic's Dual Motor System allows for more consistent cleaning performance as well as extends the life of the belt.

More Features for More Cleaning Power
If the agitator is accidentally jammed by an object or rug fringe, the Belt Saver feature shuts off the agitator motor to save the belt from breaking. The built-in electronic Dirt Sensor helps you clean with confidence by finding hidden dirt. Use the fingertip control of the EZ BareFloor 8482; On/Off Switch to shut off the agitator for safe, suction-only cleaning of all bare floors. And Automatic Carpet Height Adjustment automatically adjusts to the proper setting for just about any carpet height.

Pet Hair Won't Stick to the Anti-Static Dirt Cup
The large-capacity dirt cup with easy drop-down disposal helps keep pet hair from sticking to the cup. Swirling pet hairs create static cling that can cause the hairs to stick to the inside of the plastic cup. But a special anti-static plastic reduces cling, allowing pet hair to be easily emptied from the cup.

QuickDraw2 Tools Make Above-Floor Cleaning a Breeze
QuickDraw2 Tools like a stretch hose and a telescopic extension wand allow quick and easy whole-house, above-floor cleaning. Also included is a dusting brush, a floor brush, a crevice tool and an air turbine brush 8212; ideal for cleaning stairs, upholstery and pet hair.

MC-UL975 is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Heavy, med suction, awkward handle Darn It was a mistake to buy this baby. I was impressed with the earlier Panasonic Vac with auto cord reel and bag. It worked like a champ for me until my wife broke the lock for stand up. It still vacuums like a good old Vac should be. Back to the UL975, the darn suction is about low to medium, compared to an older one. The design is mostly bad, handle is hard to hold and control, cord winding place just awkward, the canister lid just drop off every time, cleaning the canister and filter is just not worth the bag less value. If you into the spinning trash in the canister, this Vac is for you. Get a real Vac for home, at this price, look for something else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a superstar This is the best vacuum I ever bought. from the first room I cleaned I saw a dramatic difference of how clean the room was and actually had fun cleaning. The best was the gauge telling me how dirty my floor was and giving me the green light to go on was very reassuring it was finally clean. We have 2 big dogs and 2 cats and its picked up ALL of the hair. I was blown away. If you have pets in your house this is a MUST have!! This will be the last vacuum I ever buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from solid vacuum; powerblast could work better I bought this vacuum about one year ago. It is very durable with solid build quality. Note, that with that comes weight - so consider that in your purchase. Its strength is definitely on carpet with the agitator on. It cleans up. I have issues with the edge cleaning powerm, which is so/so. Additionally, the PowerBlast does not work at all. I have a short haired dog, but her fur seems to clog up the creases of the filter. I have to clean out the filter almost every time, which is inconvenient under this design. Given the weight and size, it is hard to effectively do stairs with this vacuum. The tools and extension wand work okay, but they can be hard to manuever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super vacuum We have three dogs who shed, this vacuum has done a better job of keeping the dog hair under control than any we have used before. The only complaint that I have is that the dealer where we bought the vacuum is unable to supply the filter. The filter is washable, cleans itself every time you turn on the vacuum, however with three dogs and after heavy use I would like to change the filter!
