Instant-use wand and suction hose
The integrated, instant-use wand and suction hose are always ready. Just pull out either tool to clean hard-to-reach corners, edges, and crevices. The wand and hose together have an eight-foot reach. The suction hose is ideal for cleaning furniture.
Lower the handle flat to the floor to clean under beds, or lower it to the intermediate stop position to maneuver over rugs. Depress the foot pedal again to bypass the intermediate stop position, or close this position by moving the orange, handle-position slider.
Three-step, hospital-grade filtration
It features an S-class, pre-motor microfilter, a three-layer ultra bag, an exhaust filter, and a tightly-sealed casing, which prevents dirty air from escaping through its seams.
Four-level, manual brush height adjustment
The brush height can be manually adjusted up or down for optimal cleaning effectiveness.
Brush obstruction light with automatic shut off
If an obstruction jams the brush roller, the red “check brush” warning light flashes quickly, the brush roller immediately stops spinning, and the vacuum shuts off. This feature prevents the belts from breaking and protects the motor and carpet from damage.
Incorrect height setting or worn brush light
When brush height is set too high for optimal cleaning, or when the brush roller should be replaced due to reaching maximum bristle wear, the red “check brush” warning light remains illuminated during use. The light shuts off when the condition is corrected, ensuring consistently effective brush agitation of the carpet pile.
Easy brush removal and cleaning
Cleaning hair or other debris from the brush roller, or replacing it when its bristles are worn, is quick and easy, and no tools are required! This feature ensures consistently effective brush agitation of the carpet pile.
Full bag or clog light with automatic shut off
When a full bag, a clog in the airflow pathway, or an excessively dirty microfilter is detected, the red “bag full or clog” warning light illuminates, the machine automatically shuts off, and then the warning light starts continuously flashing. This feature prevents overheating and motor damage from a lack of adequate airflow.
The vacuum’s gradual power-up capability extends motor life.
Durable matte finish
The Essential G has an exterior housing with a special matte finish that is extra scratch and scuff-resistant, so it looks great even after years of use.
Combination carrying handle with rotating cord hook
The vacuum is easy to carry or quickly unwind the cord, using its unique handle with integrated, rotating cord hook.
Durable, heavy-duty belts
The reinforced, geared belts do not slip or stretch, resulting in more efficient use of power, and they should last the life of the machine.
