To maximize durability, these vacuums are entirely mechanical, instead of electronic. In addition, all electrical components are located in the power head, with none in the bag housing or handle, thereby minimizing electrical connectors and further improving reliability. This also means that the on/off switch is located on the power head, and the user’s foot easily operates it. Plus, the power cord is externally located, which allows
instant, tool-free removal and replacement. All this, along with simple access to most machine parts, means that maintenance is quick and easy.
The 300 and 350 MECHANICAL were designed to clean carpets, perform well on most hard floors, and have superb pet hair removal! They have a convenient instant-use cleaning wand and suction hose with an eight-foot reach and three on-board tools. The four-level manual height adjustment can be conveniently changed with the aid of the cleaning wand. Plus, the machine turns off automatically and gives user notification when a brush roller obstruction occurs, which protects the belts and carpets from damage. There is also user notification when a full bag or clog occurs. Additional features include excellent filtration, a giant 1.4-gallon bag, 39-foot cord, protective rubber-coated wheels, a low 5 ½-inch horizontal cleaning profile that fits under beds and furniture, and tool-free brush strip removal for bristle cleaning or replacement.
