Electrolux Nimble Upright Vacuum Cleaner - A Closer Look
A true HEPA filter captures 99.97% of dust and allergens 0.3 microns or larger, and the cleaner is completely sealed to keep all the dust away from you and your family. Only clean air comes out.
The Electrolux Nimble comes standard with a Quick-Release Wand. This wand easily disconnects from the vacuum to allow you to clean bookshelves, around curios, or other hard to reach places.
The Versatool is a 3-in-1 tool that can be configured in a number of ways. Each configuration provides you with customized cleaning ability for either crevices, flat areas or steps.

Good value! After the first time running this vacuum, I filled the clear bin with dirt I thought my other vacuum had picked up. The handle and hose were great when it came to cleaning furniture and baseboards. This is a good vacuum for carpet, though you might need more than one pass on hard wood floors.

Electrolux Nimble Upright Vacuum
Comparable the Dyson and Miele models, the Electrolux Nimble blends features of each of these premium brands into an affordable package. It is a new product in our vacuum cleaner line and I had the chance to test this vacuum in our office as well as take it home to use on my hardwood floors. Some uprights do not work so well on smooth flooring, but I liked the way the Nimble worked at my house.
What I like about the Electrolux Nimble
This vacuum is surprisingly light for how it looks. It is only 17 pounds, which for uprights, is a bit on the lighter side. This makes it fairly easy to take up or down stairs. On the both carpet and smooth flooring, the ability to maneuver this vacuum really shines. The way the Nimble turns reminds me of a cross between the Ball technology used by Dyson and the Swivel Neck employed with the Miele S7 vacs. What it means for you is an easier vacuum to push that mitigates the straight-line motion that most vacuum wheels suffer from.
For allergy and asthma sufferers, two features really stand out with the Nimble. First, a sealed system ensure no air leakage as air and debris passes through the vacuum. Secondly, a washable HEPA filter traps 99.97% of all particle 0.3 microns and larger. So unlike other vacuums, the Nimble actually filters allergens instead of simply redistributing them throughout your home.
The telescopic wand provides good reach, ideal for cleaning ceiling fans, the top of door jambs, and even the corners of rooms where cobwebs collect. The 30' cord meant that I was able to vacuum my entire ranch style home from one plug.
The clear dust bin is nice for me since it clearly shows me when I need to empty it (though allergy sufferers would be better suited with a bagged vacuum). Cleaning both smooth and carpeted surfaces was a cinch, and on steps the Versatool did help where other tools fail - edges.
What I do not like about the Electrolux Nimble
There are a couple of concerns that I had. The base is somewhat bulky, so it might not fit under all of your furniture. It is not the quietest vacuum, but is not really louder than a standard upright.
Overall, this vacuum is a solid choice for apartments and smaller homes with a variety of floor surfaces. For the price, the Electrolux Nimble is a great choice for home owners who want an affordable upright vacuum cleaner with HEPA filtration. The accessories are perfect for most homes and lend to the overall versatility of this vacuum. If you don't mind the somewhat bulky base, the Nimble is a powerful cleaning machine suitable for pet owners and people with most styles of carpeting and bare floors.
