Awesome Vacuum Cleaners

Updated on June 14, 2011

Devices that use moving air to pick up unwanted detritus in the household are referred to as vacuum cleaners. Sure, the corner department store has a unit or three tucked into the corner next to the fishing rods, but the Internet offers a veritable plethora of automated devices engineered to both clean and amaze.

Hoover U6439-900 Self-Propelled WindTunnel Ultra Upright Vacuum Cleaner

Hoover is a famous name in dams and presidential administrations, but the Hoover Corporation also builds a sweet vacuum cleaner. The U6439-900 not only has a cool name, but also comes with a useful set of cleaning tools. It gobbles up filth along baseboards and smooth floors as well as deep pile carpet.

Dyson DC25 Animal Ball-Technology Upright Vacuum Cleaner

Company is coming... where do you hide the vacuum cleaner?

The Dyson DC25 Animal Ball-technology Upright belongs in a place of prominence. Don't hide it in the closet. Place it proudly in the corner, where friends and family can admire the engineering marvel that is the Animal Ball.

Better yet, let friends and family have a go at your living room carpet. Allow them the pleasure of guiding the unique device around tables, pets, and other cleaning obstacles.

Ladybug Tekno 2350 Vapor Steam Cleaner

Anything named "Ladybug" must, by law, be cute and predominantly red in color. This absolutely darling device cleans with automatically generated steam and a darling digital display. The boiler is warranted for 8 years, the remainder of the gizmo is warranted for 3 years.

Steam controls are located on the handle (thanks, engineers!) so no excessive bending over is necessary. Fill the tank with water, press a few buttons, and commence with steam cleaning.

Pentair P80730 Prowler 730 Robotic In-Ground Pool Cleaner with 75-Foot Cable

Walk outside and take a close look at your in-ground swimming pool. Yucky enough for you?

The Pentair P80730 Prowler vacuums most pool surfaces including vinyl, gunite, tile, and fiberglass. Depend on it to prowl around the bottom of your pool like a stalking predator eying a wounded wildebeest, except the wildebeest is pool algae and the predator is a waterproof cleaning device ordered online.

Overlarge large gunk is collected in a reusable bag while smaller yuk is trapped in a filter. The thing actually operates via remote control: no more swimming in the yucky gunk trying to vacuum in the deep end. Recline in cool comfort under a beach umbrella as the Pentair Prowler tracks down and inhales all the stuff you don't want in your pool, except your in-laws.

Dirt Devil Rampage Robotic Pool Cleaner

Dirt can be a real devil, yes? Look to the Dirt Devil Rampage to robotically scrub your pool until it's clean enough to swim in. Lake Erie would never be the same if about 1 million of these things were released into it.

Regardless of the size of your fresh-water chlorinated pool, this device scrubs floors and walls, all under your remote control. Tell your kids it's a video game and go back in the house to watch ESPN.

Powr-Flite PAS40R-BC Predator 40R Auto Scrubber

It's hardly fair that the lawn gets cut with a riding mower while the family room carpet must endure a manually-driven vacuum cleaner. Check out the Powr-Flite PAS40R-BC Predator 40R Auto Scrubber for welcome relief from actually lugging your carpet sweeper across the berber. This amazing device transports you in plasticized comfort from room to room while inhaling every loose item within 3 feet. Put the cat out first.

Macho Consumer Purchasing Rule #1: Anything named "The Predator" is automatically worth having.


Don't leave your dirt laying around. Vacuum it up into highly sophisticated devices.
