Panasonic MC-CG885 Vacuum Cleaner Introduction

Panasonic is a leading edge company offering well designed vacuum cleaners with many advanced features. The MC-CG885 is an excellent example, combining style with functionality and durability in this midsize power team. Features include a finger-tip on/off switch on the hose, quick disconnect hose and wands, reinforced banded v-belt and HEPA exhaust filter.

Powerful 12 Amp. System

The main suction canister and its motorized power nozzle work together to create a powerful 12 Amp power team that produces strong suction and good agitation for deep cleaning any type of carpeted floors. Featuring lifetime lubricated ball bearings and well balanced motor parts in both the suction motor and power nozzle motor, it will perform quietly for many years.

OptiFlow™ Double-Wall Bag Chamber

The new OptiFlow™ double-wall bag chamber improves air flow by allowing air to exit the high filtration bag in all directions. This is especially important as the bag fills because air no longer has to fight through layers of dirt and debris in the bag to exit it. Additionally, the OptiFlow™ Bag Caddy allows you to easily replace the bag by lifting the caddy with bag from the vacuum and placing them on a convenient surface. No longer do you need to bend down to reach the bag in the canister.

Deluxe Power Nozzle

This Panasonic power team has one of the best power nozzles available. It features a reinforced, banded V-belt for positive power transfer from the motor and a brush roll with two rows of bristles for rigorous agitation to deep clean of your carpets. Being reinforced and held tight by a steal tension spring, the belt will not stretch nor slip like the flat rubber belts used on most power nozzles. If a large object inadvertently enters the cleaning nozzle and drastically slows or stops the brush roll and motor, its overload protector reacts quickly to shut off and protect the belt and nozzle motor.

Convenient Finger Tip On/Off Switch

With the Panasonic MC-CG885, you have complete control right at your finger tips with the remote control dual voltage electrified hose. The hose mounted remote power switch give you the ability to to easily turn the unit on and off with you finger tips. You can even use the power nozzle to clean small areas of bare floors by stopping the power nozzle motor and brush roll with a flip of the remote power switch.

Convenient Swivel Hose

The 6' hose can swivel freely for 360°, enabling you to work conveniently near the machine. This feature also reduces sideways stresses on the hose which can significantly shorten its life span, causing it to tear prematurely. The hose diameter is oversize as well, enhancing the power team's air flow by reducing the internal resistance from the hose.

Convenient Covered Attachment Storage

The Panasonic model MC-CG885 carries its small attachments conveniently tucked away in the covered tool storage on the main unit where they are always easily accessible. This design reduces the risk of bumping these attachments, accidentally knocking them from the vacuum cleaner. The hose and wands incorporate steel buttons which securely hold the attachments on them while allowing easy switching of attachment when moving to a different cleaning task.

All Three Wheels Swivel 360°

This Panasonic canister vacuum cleaner is designed to track nicely behind you as you pull it by the hose. It is equipped with three wheels which turn a full 360° making them very easy to maneuver and very stable. Going over electrical cords, door thresholds and around furniture is a breeze. Since it can be moved in any direction, being able to easily push it out of your path when working near the machine is an added convenience.

Additional Deluxe Features

To round out this midsize power team, Panasonic includes a number of additional deluxe features. The high efficiency spun polymer dust bag and fan-fold HEPA exhaust filter reduce recirculation of dust and allergens back into your home. Three swivel wheels plus the light weight design allow the cleaner to be conveniently pulled after you by its hose. When finished with your cleaning tasks, the 26' power cord automatically rewinds back into the cleaner with a light touch of the rewind button.
