Sanitaire SL635 Vacuum Cleaner Introduction

If you are looking for a powerful and very durable upright vacuum cleaner at an economical price, the Sanitaire SL635 Professional upright may be the one for you. For many years Sanitaire has had an excellent track record of consistently producing commercial quality products which perform well and seem to last forever. The Sanitaire SL635 Professional continues their tradition of excellence with its outstanding cleaning effectiveness, incorporating an efficient motor with extra-large suction producing fan and very durable revolving brush roll.

Heavy Duty Construction

The Sanitaire SL635 is a professional quality upright which is designed for heavy duty home cleaning. Its base plate and complete handle are made from durable chrome plated steel. Even the handle release pedal and latching mechanism are made of hardened steel for extra long life. Eureka is an industry leader, having successfully used Lexan for manufacturing their upright bases, fans, and other parts requiring high impact resistance since the mid 1960s. Lexan is General Electric's registered trademark for a particular type of polycarbonate resin. It is an extremely tough and strong synthetic plastic with the ability to maintain its shape and size even under great stresses over a wide range of temperatures. This makes it ideal for the main base of the Sanitaire SL635. It is light weight but extremely tough, being able to flex and handle high impacts without breaking. The hood is made from high impact ABS plastics for long life as well.

Efficient 5.0 Amp Motor

Large amounts of air flow and rigorous carpet agitation powered by its 5.0 amp. (600 watts) high performance motor combine in the Sanitaire SL635 Professional upright to deep-clean all types of carpeted floors. Featuring lifetime lubricated ball bearings and well constructed motor parts it will perform dependably for many years. When it comes to cleaning carpeted floors, this upright will out perform most uprights, even those with higher amperage ratings.

Efficient and Durable Suction Fan

The sturdy, well designed suction fan in the Sanitaire SL635 is one of the most efficient in the industry. The fan's extra large diameter and tall blades are designed to handle large volumes of air efficiently. This special fan, combined with the extra large air passages and extra large paper bag, produces an extremely high amount of air flow through the system for very effective cleaning. Being made with Lexan, it is extremely tough with the ability to maintain its shape and size even under great stresses over a wide range of temperatures. Its ability to flex with impact enables its blades to take direct hits from large debris with minimal risk of breaking.

Center Mounted, Funnel Shaped Air Intake

The center mounted air intake behind the brush roll flares out to the edges of the cleaning nozzle as it approaches the brush roll. This wide funnel shaped opening causes the air flow to be distributed quite evenly across the entire cleaning width for more efficient and uniform cleaning. This also creates a flat dirt collection area immediately behind the brush roll so dirt and grit are gathered and whisk away by the air flow before they can bounce back out of the nozzle. This substantially reduces the scatter effect which many uprights experience when picking up grit and small stones.

Triple Filtered Bag System

The Sanitaire SL635 comes equipped with a filtered outer bag which is designed for use with extra large paper bags for greatly increased filtering efficiency. You can choose from two types of paper bags to use in the Sanitaire SL635, depending on your filtration needs. Their economical standard paper bag is designed for those who do not need the micron capabilities of Eureka's Premium paper bags. Their Premium paper bags have a filtration efficiency of 99.9% down to 1 micron in size, making them capable of filtering out over 99% of pollens, 98% of selected bacteria and 95% of all yeast and fungi that would normally be put back into your home's air after vacuuming with standard dust bags. Premium bags have the ability to filter out 10 times more of sub-micron size particles than ordinary vacuum cleaner bags. This filtration is accomplished with minimal loss of air flow.

Far Reaching 30' Power Cord

The extra-long 30' power cord enables you to clean large areas without breaking your pace to change to a different electrical outlet. Its kinkless vinyl cover and the quick release top cord hook enable you to wrap in on the handle and remove it again with greater ease.

Convenient Height Adjustment

Easily adjust the Sanitaire SL635 to match the exact height of your carpets with the front mounted height adjustment knob. This enables you to set it exactly as need for optimum cleaning and ease of use.
