Kirby Ultimate G Pros and Cons
MSRP$599 This vacuum is more expensive than average and is priced in the top 5% of upright vacuums.
Premium Features7 This vacuum cleaner has an average number of premium features when compared to other upright vacuums.
Variable Suction ControlNo Power and suction levels cannot be adjusted when vacuuming diffferent surfaces such as delicate rugs, deep soiled carpets, or bare floors.
Detachable CanisterNo Detachable canisters are not a common feature, but they are handy for using your attachments on furniture, stairways, or narrow areas.
Noise ReductionNo Special noise reduction features have not been incorporated and noise levels are typical of your standard vacuum cleaner.
Enhanced SteeringNo Uses standard steering which is generally constrained to pushing the vacuum back and forth across the flooring.
HEPA Filter True or absolute HEPA filters are best. They can capture 97.99% of particles down to 0.3 microns including dust, pet dander, and allergens.
Absorb OdorsNo Charcoal filters are not common, but if you're a cat or dog owner, they do help absorb odors out of the carpet.
Auto Cord RewindNo Manually rewinding the cord takes a little more time and effort, but the vacuum can still look neat and organized.
Special Features This vacuum has other special featues that are unique to this brand, and which help to make it more user friendly and effective.
Indicator LightsNo Does not have indicator lights to alert you when required maintenance operations need attention such as filter or bag changing.
Edge Cleaning Designed with side brushes and / or air suction to vacuum flooring all the way to the edges. Prevents dust and dirt from accumulating against the baseboards.
Longer Cord Length Cord length is greater than 25 feet which is adequate for most room sizes in a standard home and reduces the frequency of switching outlets.
Headlight Headlights are optional features, but they are nice for vacuuming in the evening, or trying to see in narrow areas or corners.
Longer WarrantyNo This vacuum is backed by a one-year warranty. Two or more years is desirable, but one-year is standard for the industry.
Brushroll On / Off Having the option to turn off the brushroll as you transition from carpet to bare floors helps keep the dirt from being pushed away from the vacuum.
Automatic Height AdjustmentNo Most vacuums have manual height adjustments that require a dial change as you move from carpets to rugs or bare floors.
Turbo Brush Includes a turbo brush attachment that helps remove pet hair, dust, and dirt from furniture, stairways, and window coverings.
Weight (lbs)28.5 This vacuum cleaner is heavier than average and ranks in the top 3% of upright vacuums.
User Reviews4.3 Kirby Ultimate G - Based on user reviews, this vacuum is rated higher than average by 181 users and ranks in the top 22% of upright vacuums.
