Made in Germany, the Essential G1 is a super durable, technically advanced, commercial-grade upright vacuum cleaner! The 12-inch power head has four-level manual height adjustment, can effectively clean carpets and hard-floor surfaces, and has excellent pet hair removal.
The Essential G1 features an electronic controller that acts as a brain, alerting users to a worn brush or when brush height is set too high for optimal cleaning. Also, the vacuum shuts off automatically when a full bag, a clog, or a brush roller obstruction occurs, which protects the motor, belts and carpets from damage.
The ESSENTIAL G1 is powerful, yet quiet, and will provide years of reliable use! It even has an exterior housing with a scratch and scuff-resistant matte finish and a soft-start feature that extends motor life. It also has a convenient instant-use cleaning wand and suction hose with an eight-foot reach, three on-board tools, and a five-year parts and labor warranty. Additional features include excellent filtration, a giant 1.4-gallon bag, an extra long 40-foot cord, protective rubber-coated wheels, a low 5.5-inch horizontal cleaning profile that fits under beds and furniture, and tool-free brush roller removal for replacement or bristle cleaning.
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.
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 the brush height is set too high for optimal cleaning or when the brush roller should be replaced due to wear, the red "check brush" warning light remains illuminated during use. (The vacuum will not automatically shut off.) 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.
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 machine automati-cally shuts off after 60 seconds, and then the warning light starts continuously flashing. This feature prevents overheating and motor damage from a lack of adequate airflow.
Soft Start Feature
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.
Three On-board Full-size Tools. Large Filter Bag
The ESSENTIAL G comes standard with a crevice tool, dusting brush, upholstery nozzle, and a large 1.4-gallon filter bag. Also, many optional accessories are available.
Two Power Head Widths with One-sided Edge Cleaning
The ESSENTIAL G1 is 12-inches wide with a 10 ½-inch cleaning path. The head hase one-sided edge cleaning.
Durable Heavy-duty Belts
The reinforced toothed belts do not slip or stretch, resulting in a more efficient use of power, and they should last the life of the machine
A 40-foot cord saves time, by reducing the number of electrical outlet changes needed during use.
The ESSENTIAL G's clog removal door and brush roller are easy to access on the power head.
