It features a large, ergonomic handle on top so the vacuum can easily be carried up and down stairs or comfortably held for above-floor cleaning. The 11-amp motor offers powerful cleaning performance. Plus a 12-inch wide nozzle lets you clean larger areas in less time. Attach the blower hose to the blower port and you have a simple, efficient way to extract dirt from hard-to-reach nooks and crannies, blow debris outdoors or corral it for non-vacuum cleaning.
