Electrolux EL8807 Precision Upright HEPA Vacuum Cleaner - A Closer Look
|U HEPA Filter
As an S-Class HEPA filter, the U-filter captures 99.97% of dust and allergens 0.3 microns or larger. Combined with the sealed system, the Precision's filtration traps those common household allergens like dust mites, pollen and pet dander. Hand wash/rinse and allow to dry. Replace as needed.
As the first stay of filtration in the Electrolux Precision, this foam dust cup filter traps visible particles, like dirt and fine dust, as well as some of the invisible household allergens that can cause allergic reactions. Rinse with clean water and allow to completely air dry then reuse time and time again.
Traditional vacuum cleaners often have belts that require annual replacement. Not so with the Electrolux Precision. This well-built, Lifetime Belt never needs to be replaced and will provide years of flawless performance.
Adjust and position this combination tool to use for one of three functions. Lay it flat to clean the top of upholstered furniture, or position the arms at 90° angles for the perfect corner and step cleaning tool. Lastly, bring the arms together to form a crevice tool, ideal for those narrow spaces where you cannot normally reach.

Electrolux Precision Brushroll Clean Vacuum Cleaner
For homes with a lot of carpet, dust bags can fill up rather quickly. The simple act of walking on carpet, over time, can loosen fibers, and carpets tend to trap and hold allergens, dirt, hair and debris far better than smooth flooring, so for these reasons a bagless vac, like the Electrolux Precision Brushroll Clean Vacuum Cleaner can save you money while helping to remove allergens from your home. With a sealed system, HEPA filter and powerful suction, the Precision offers everything you need to thoroughly clean not only your floors, but your entire home. And, the patented Brushroll Clean technology solves a traditional problem with vacuum cleaners - clogged brushrolls. So how does the EL8807A Precision upright fare after testing?
What I like about the Electrolux Precision Vacuum
From the get-go, this vacuum looks like it means business. It has a very modern look, with a bright refreshing color of tangerine. It looks like a hefty vacuum that will have great suction, and won't topple over when I'm using the wand to clean edges and such. It is stable when you use the wand, but not quite as heavy as it looks. At home, I started in the living room which has the highest pile height in the house. I turned it on, and had an easy time gliding across the open space in the living room. The wand was handy for cleaning under the furniture, as the head of this upright was bit too bulky to fit under low profile furniture. With a height adjustment pedal it was easy to transition from carpet to bare floors using high and medium settings for carpets, and the low setting, after flipping the brushroll off, for our bare floors. Overall, the suction, cleaning ability and performance on carpet was great, and it is satisfying, to see the accumulation of dirt and debris in the clear dust bin. That can also be a bit disconcerting too, particularly when you consider I vacuumed just two days prior.
For the above-the-floor cleaning, I used all three of the supplied accessories. Suction control for the wand was a must, especially for drapes and curtains, and vacuuming around the book shelves. The Versatool was a pretty nifty multi-tool that I was able to use on my stairs and sofa. I really like how it could be versatile while having just the right amount of suction to clean, and unlike most combination tools, there wasn't a big drop off in terms of performance. With most accessories like this, the trade-off is versatility for performance, but the curve wasn't near as sharp as it usually is with tools of this nature.
I took a stab at the Brushroll Clean Technology, which was triggered by a button found on the base of the vacuum. It basically rids of any hair/string/debris wrapped around the brushroll. This is a nice feature that eliminates the extra work and time in taking care of your vacuum. It takes a little time for it to fully clean, but I found that if you use it at the end of each cleaning session, it helps to prevent build up and keeps the process smooth and short. Emptying out the dust bin was not as messy as I thought it was going to be. I took the bin outside to dump into an old plastic bag before tossing it in the trash. The bin and filters were easy to clean, which I rinsed and air dried before placing them back into the vacuum.
The filtration of this model was excellent. The seals throughout the system, foam filter, and washable HEPA filter all work to ensure that the air that is coming out of this vacuum is clean and free of allergens. The washable filter always saves a bit on annual replacements, but if you purchase this vac, get a second filter. It takes a minimum of 24 hours for them to dry, sometimes longer.
What I do not like about the Electrolux Precision Vacuum
As I mentioned earlier, in the living room the vacuum wasn't suitable for going underneath side tables or the coffee table or other furniture because of the large base/cleaning head. You might have noticed a few other similarities to this model and Dyson vacuums... this is another of them.
For those with allergies, the bagless design can be a bit of a pain. Allergens, dust and other irritants can become airborne again if you're not careful while emptying the bin. For these folks, I recommend doing it outside since HEPA filtration does you little good if many of the allergens you're trying to filter get right back into the air when you empty the bin.
In all, the Electrolux Precision Brushroll Clean upright is very effective on carpet and above-the-floor cleaning. On smooth flooring, it will suffice, but it wasn't really designed for large areas of smooth flooring. The Brushroll clean feature is truly innovative, and the Versatool is surprisingly handy. The suction of this Electrolux is going to be more than enough for most people, and in terms of noise, it's pretty average. As a HEPA vacuum cleaner at the $299 price point, it's a really good value and well built.
