“Amazing against pet hair and perfect for cleaning carpets”
The Eureka Brushroll Clean is not a state of the art vacuum cleaner and it isn’t a beautiful device due to its bulky design. Still, it is a very efficient floor and carpet cleaning machine that will allow users to clean the house, the stairs, the inside of the car and even the garage.
In our opinion, this vacuum cleaner is too loaded and packs quite a body to be easy to maneuver and carry around. The transparent bin is an interesting feature that sweetens the deal, but it can’t compensate for the entire big aspect. Another aspect that makes it desirable in front of other competitors like the Hoover Air Cordless Series 3.0 or the Dyson V6 Absolute is a brushroll that helps the vacuum-cleaner to clean itself so the user doesn’t have to touch things like hairs that get tangled in the brush. By simply activating a pedal, the hairs and other debris will be cleaned from the cleaning head and sucked inside the bin.
All in all, the Eureka Brushroll Clean is a pretty regular vacuum cleaner, with plenty of space for cord and a lot of power. The suction power is quite impressive and the cleaning performance is very good, especially if you have pets. The asking price is similar to the Hoover Air Cordless 3.0 (about $200) but the usability and handling can’t even compare with this one. The difference is made by their cleaning performance and capacity.
Type & Design
The Eureka Brushroll Clean is an upright vacuum cleaner, with cord, and a lot of body so it can be difficult to deposit if you don’t have a special closet for it. Also, the device doesn’t have a bag to collect the dust so it can be included in the upright, with cord, but bagless category. The fact that it doesn’t come with a removable bag that forces the user to come in direct contact with the collected dirt and dust is a powerful advantage in front of all the vacuum cleaners that come with a bag.
In terms of design, the producer didn’t consider this aspect too much. It is a bulky machine and all the visible items like the hoses, the cord roller, even the dustbin are visually upsetting. You can actually compare it with a big robot that moves with difficult because of its size.
What’s in the Box
The Eureka Brushroll Clean is delivered with a few very interesting and useful accessories like a crevice tool, a combination brush, one dust cup filter (washable), and the extension wand. All these accessories can be placed on the vacuum cleaner for storage, but users must be careful as the system is not very secure.
Because the device comes almost completely mounted, you won’t have to lose a lot of time to figure things out. Still, the package comes with a user manual that explains where everything goes.
Handling & Usability
Sadly, this vacuum cleaner doesn’t handle well as the user has to put a lot of effort into cleaning. The vacuum cleaner needs to be pushed (in straight line), pulled, rotated, and carried up the stairs just like a normal floor cleaner. We really missed the rotating brush that makes the Hoover Air Cordless Series 3.0 so easy to handle.
The vacuum cleaner can be used on both carpets and hardwood floors without any damage to the surface, but it is difficult to maneuver on surfaces that don’t allow for a smooth flow. It behaves well on areas impregnated with dirt and pet hair which makes it great for households with such problems.

Eureka Brushroll Clean AS3401A
The Eureka Brushroll Clean promotes new technologies like SuctionSeal and AirSpeed, fact that allows the vacuum cleaner to function properly in any situation without getting clogged or choked. The suction power is great at every level and remains constant for the entire cleaning time, allowing the user to finish the job quickly and efficiently.
The cord is 27ft long and, when not used, it is tucked in a role that protects it from any accidents.
Just like the vacuum cleaner that mother used to have, the Eureka Brushroll Clean is loud and has the capacity to wake up the whole house.
