Panasonic MC-UG383 Vacuum Cleaner Introduction

Panasonic is a leading edge company offering well designed vacuum cleaners with many advanced features. The Panasonic model MC-UG383 lightweight upright is an good example, combining style with functionality and durability to create an outstanding upright in its price range.

QuickDraw On-Board Attachments

The QuickDraw On-Board attachments enable you to conveniently clean you furniture and those hard-to-reach corners without slowing you pace. The deluxe wire reinforced stretch hose extends to give an 10' attachment reach for those high ceilings, etc. If you need an extra long reach, Panasonic now offers an optional Extension Stretch Hose to extend your total reach to 16 feet.

The QuickDraw feature enables you to quickly remove the hose and wand in one easy step. The small attachments are always conveniently nearby on the side of the vacuum cleaner as well.

Durable and Efficient Clean-Air Design

A key feature which all Panasonic uprights incorporate is the clean-air system design. The air flow which picked up the dirt is cleaned by the filtering system before it passes through the fan of the suction motor. This design eliminates fan breakage problems which can be caused when objects are picked up by a dirty-air system. Also, it typically produces significantly more suction, especially when the optional hose and attachments are used.

Powerful 12.0 Amp Motor

Strong suction and rigorous carpet agitation powered by its 12.0 amp. motor combine in the Panasonic MC-UG383 vacuum to deep-clean carpet as well as all other surfaces. Featuring lifetime lubricated ball bearings and well balanced motor parts, it will perform quietly for many years. The track record of Panasonic motors is one of the best in the industry.

Like most uprights, the Panasonic MC-UG383 has a 1-fan motor. Panasonic also manufacturers more powerful uprights in a special series which have their more efficient 12 amp., 2-fan Triforce Plus motors that develop about 1/3 more suction. Panasonic is playing a game of "Hide and Seek" with their policy of not selling the models in this special series to dealers who promote them on the web.

The maximum amperage permitted for UL Approval of an upright vacuum cleaner is 12.0 Amps. If you see a rating higher than that, it probably is an Efficiency Rating.

Automatic Carpet Height Adjustment

All Panasonic uprights have automatic carpet height adjustments. The weight of the main housing is carried on the two rear wheels, allowing the fairly light nozzle to float on the top of the carpet. This design makes them very maneuverable around furniture as well as convenient when going from one carpet to another. When the handle is moved to the vertical position for using the attachments, the agitator is automatically raised out of the carpet nap. This is helpful as well when you want to pause a moment to move a piece of furniture without turning off the cleaner.
