Vacuum Highlights

  • Canister vacuum with motorized power nozzle.

  • The 360-degree swivel hose permits a wide range of cleaning without moving the canister. Canister tip-over is also greatly reduced since the hose moves freely in all directions.

  • A V-groove belt and agitator shaft team up for non-slipping positive brush action and more effective cleaning.

  • Tool attachments are recessed on top of the canister for easy access during cleaning. No time is wasted searching for the tool you need. Just lift the cover and it's right within your reach.

  • Auto cord rewind, 12 amp motor, HEPA exhaust filter, finger-tip controls, recessed tool attachment storage, and 4 cleaning attachments.

Panasonic CG973 Pros and Cons
MSRP$319 This vacuum is priced about average when compared to other canister vacuums.
Premium Features6 This vacuum cleaner has an average number of premium features when compared to other canister vacuums.
Variable Suction Control Variable suction control allows you to increase power as needed on deep, dirty carpets, or lower the suction when vacuuming delicate rugs and bare floors.
Finger-Tip ControlsNo Vacuum controls are a little less convenient to operate since they're not located at the top of the vacuuming wand within finger-tip reach.
Noise ReductionNo Special noise reduction features have not been incorporated and noise levels are typical of your standard vacuum cleaner.
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 Rewind Auto-rewind is a convenient feature that allows you to rewind the cord with just the press of a button. It saves time and keeps your vacuum neat and organized.
Wand StorageNo Without onboard wand storage it takes a little additional effort to keep the vacuum organized and securely stored when not using it.
Special FeaturesNo Like most vacuums, this vacuum cleaner does not have any special features that are unique to this brand.
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 LengthNo Cord length is less than 25 feet and may require more frequent outlet changing depending on the size and layout of the rooms in your home.
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.
Motorized Brush-Roll A motorized brush-roll helps agitate the carpet and loosen dirt so that the vacuum can suction up the debris more effectively.
Turbo BrushNo Does not include a turbo brush attachment that helps vacuum pet hair, dirt, and dust from furniture, stairways, or window coverings.
Weight (lbs)13.5 This vacuum cleaner weighs about average when compared to other canister vacuums.
