Most people think the best suction vacuum cleaner would have to be a Dyson. That’s what they are most known for – so it makes sense. More often than not, this generalization is true. I’ve actually found three different best suction vacuum cleaners, each in it’s own sub-category (upright, canister and handheld).
The Dyson DC25 All Floors is the vacuum with the best suction in the upright category. For Dyson to sell so many vacuums at a premium price there has to be some reason, right? Well, in this case it’s the suction. It’s also very easy to maneuver around.
The Eureka 71AV has the best suction in the handheld category. What’s great about this little model is that it is portable and lightweight, besides having great pick-up power. It’s nice for stairs and other hard to reach areas.
The Electrolux EL6985A canister also has superb suction. One thing that’s really attractive about this model is that it is so quiet. It’s also fairly lightweight, so you shouldn’t have a problem dragging it up and down stairs. A lot of people prefer canister models, but it really just depends on your taste.
Overall, I would probably rate the Dyson highest of these 3 models. Other than price, the DC25 has just about everything going for it – including being the vacuum with the best suction.
