The best vacuum under $200 is honestly not that much different than the best vacuum under $100 post I did a few weeks back. However, there is one model I would add to my previous list: the Eureka Boss SmartVac 4870MZ. It’s a little under $150 at WalMart, so it’s well under the $200 level. It has pretty much all you could ask for in a good vacuum cleaner: it’s quiet, has good attachments, is great with pet hair, the suction is great & the roller brush has an on/off switch.
While I think the 4870MZ model is the best vacuum under $200, I would also like to add a close runner up – the Bissell Pet Hair Eraser 3920. It also does great on pet hair and has tremendous suction for a cheaper vacuum. This one is also well under $200. Of course, I also stand by my previous post for the best vacuum under $100 – those 2 models are also great, and cheaper too.
