The AUTOMATIC X is the world’s most technically advanced and uniquely easy-to-use vacuum cleaner! The 15-inch X5 features truly automatic height adjustment, using an electronic controller that measures the resistance of the spinning brush roller against the floor, and then it signals up or down adjustments, which ensures optimal performance on both carpets and hard floors. The user is also alerted to clogs, a worn brush, or a full bag, and the vacuum automatically shuts off when brush obstructions occur, to protect the motor and belts from damage. The X also has an instant-use cleaning wand and suction hose, a lifetime belt warranty, tool-free brush roller removal, a 40-foot power cord, and three on-board attachments.
Instant-use Wand and Suction Hose
The integrated instant-use wand and suction hose are always ready. Just pull out either tool, or both together, 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. And an optional nine-foot extension hose is available, which creates a total hose length of 15 feet perfect for cleaning stairs. Choose from a range of optional attachments that can be fitted to the wand or hose!
A Low 5.5" Profile
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.
Automatic Height Adjustment: From Hard Floors to Carpets
The electronic controller adjusts the power head up or down to the appropriate brush height, providing optimal cleaning of both carpets and hard floors. The "sealing strip," located behind the brush, improves hard floor cleaning performance by channeling the airflow and preventing debris kickback.
Brush Adjustment Indicator Lights
Two green lights, one for "up" and one for "down," illuminate to indicate when the power head is in the process of adjusting brush height to the proper cleaning level. Optimal cleaning effectiveness occurs when both lights are off.
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.
Worn Brush Light. Easy Brush Removal and Cleaning
When the brush roller’s bristles are worn to a point that brush agitation is less effective, the red "check brush" warning light remains illuminated during use. (The vacuum continues to operate; it will not automatically shut off.) When needed, installing a new brush roller or cleaning hair or other debris from a used brush is quick and easy, and no tools are required!
Stationary Use Light
When the vacuum is stationary in its upright handle-locked position, the power head adjusts upward to the height necessary (or to its highest possible level) to disengage the spinning brush roller from the floor. However, if the brush remains in contact with carpet fibers, despite the power head’s upward adjustment, the red "check brush" warning light flashes to alert the user to avoid potential carpet marking from excessive use time in a stationary position. Usually, very high-pile carpets cause this situation, or the vacuum is tilted toward the brush roller while using the cleaning wand and/or hose. The solution is to tilt the locked upright handle backward such that the brush is raised above the carpet pile.
Bag Full 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 vacuum automatically shuts off after 30 seconds, and then the warning light starts continuously flashing. This feat- ure prevents overheating and motor damage from a lack of adequate airflow.
Combination Carrying Handle with Rotating Cord Hook
The AUTOMATIC X is easy to carry or quickly unwind the cord, using its unique handle with integrated rotating cord hook.
Three On-board Full-size Tools. Large Filter Bag
The vacuum comes standard with a crevice tool, dusting brush, upholstery nozzle, and a large 1.4-gallon filter bag. Also, many optional accessories are available.
A 40-foot cord saves time, by reducing the number of electrical outlet changes needed during use.
Lifetime Belt Warranty
Stop changing vacuum belts! With an AUTOMATIC X, they should last the life of the machine!
Power Head Width. One or Two-sided Edge Cleaning
The AUTOMATIC X5 is 15-inches wide with a cleaning path of 14½ inches and one-sided edge cleaning.
The clog removal door, brush, and replaceable hard floor "sealing strip" are easy to access.
