SEBO Essential G Series Vacuum Cleaner
The SEBO Essential G
series vacuum cleaners are uprights that are an
excellent vacuum choice for allergy sufferers that have mostly
wall-to-wall carpeting in their home. The Essential G vacuum
features the same powerful motor as their cousins in the
Automatic X series, but they are slightly less expensive due to
their manual height adjustment. The manual height adjustment
is a rotary dial and is located on the right hand side of the
What I like about the SEBO G Series
There is an
electric sensor that helps you set the brush to the correct height.
The only difference between the vacuums in this series is that the
G1 has a 12-inch wide cleaning path, while the G2 has a 15-inch wide
cleaning path. At only 17 pounds, this vacuum is one of the lightest
upright vacuums made by SEBO.
The electronic controls on this upright are what separates it from other vacuums. It is equipped with warning systems and
automatic shut-off capabilities that are designed to alert the user to machine problems like clogs, brush obstructions, and
a full dust bag. It also tells you when you have the correct brush setting for optimal cleaning.
Other design features of this vacuum include an ergonomic grip, a
40 foot cord, and active wand with a flexible hose, and a flat to
the floor profile of less than 6 inches.
What I do not like about SEBO G Series
This vacuum cleaner has solid performance and it very easy to use. The manual
adjustment makes it a little less desirable than its close SEBO cousin the Automatic X4. However, this vacuum is a little less expensive.
One problem for some people might be that the G series is only available in one color. You do not really have a choice except for white with
teal (green) accents.
In summary, there is nothing really special about this vacuum, but it is a no frills, durable, work horse. It works best on carpeting.
I would recommend going with Essential G2 vacuum, because the G2 has the wider 15 inch cleaning path.
