Choosing the right vacuum cleaner is basically like choosing the right car to take a drive in. It has to suit your needs, give you the right benefits and convenience. The Panasonic MC-CG902 is a user friendly canister cleaner that is a bit smaller and lighter than most. The product is available in only a burgundy color and weighs at about 26.2 pounds with a 12A motor, a 24 foot power cord with cord reel.
Its convenient features also come with an easy grip handle that makes for easy maneuverability up the stairs, carpets and in several rooms, and an on/off bare-floor option that ensures safe bare-floor cleaning. Handy attachments are also provided as on-board tools, all of which are found in a secure compartment under the lid for easy accessibility, and typically comprise of a brush for bare-floor surfaces, an upholstery brush for living room chairs and furniture, and a dusting brush for surfaces like lamps and tabletops. An additional crevice tool is also available for the suctioning between couch cushions and tight places.
Two chrome wands are included for places that are hard-to-reach, such as the far back corners and around light ceiling fixtures. Other features also include:
- Powerful 12 Amp Motor
- Dual Motor System
- 14 Inch Cleaning Path
- Hepa Filter
- Automatic Cord Reel
- Tools On Board
- Handle Grip
- On/Off Power Switch On Handle
- EZ On/Off Bare-Floor Option On Handle
- Curved Carrying Top Handle
- 360 Degree Hose Swivel
- 4 Position Carpet Height Adjustment
The features and options that come with the cleaner ultimately help the user get a better, easier and more convenient cleaning experience.
There is also a 9-inch extra floor attachment that can reach the crooks and crannies that the power head won’t be able to reach. One notable disadvantage, however, is the cleaner’s lack of durability, as they only last for about less than a year. They don’t last as long as most brands, powerful though its suction motor is. The handle light also goes off when in floor mode and rotates at about 90 degrees counter clockwise, which is advantageous for right handed users, especially when cleaning under sofas, but it can be especially difficult for lefties.
One of its most advantageous performances is its powerful suction. It can basically pick up everything, from little crumb particles to small rocks, and it’s a breeze to clean under beds and sofas. The cleaner’s light weight also gives it more flexible mobility, while the low profile power head provides the handler better access to toe kicks and sofas. It is also equipped with a power head, which makes it convenient to whip around the room. This Panasonic vacuum cleaner also operates with a low noise level compared to other brands and can be fitted with bags from other manufacturers too.
All in all, the MC-CG902 is quite convenient, with an exceptional suction. While it is not entirely durable, it cleans well for a machine with an affordable price.
