The Philips SpeedPro Max series 8000 XC8049/01 is not only a powerful stick vacuum, but it's also easy to maintain. The PowerCyclone 10 motor is one of Philips' most powerful motors. At the lowest setting, you can vacuum for 70 minutes, and the battery can last for 28 minutes in the turbo setting. The fact that the vacuum cleaner is easy to maintain is caused by 2 things: the motor filter is washable and the display indicates when it's time to do so, and when to replace the exhaust filter. The nozzle sucks up dust on all sides and the LED lighting shows you exactly where all the dirt is. If you're looking for a powerful stick vacuum with which you can easily vacuum the whole house, this is the right choice for you.
