The Electrolux EL5020A Intensity is an upright vacuum cleaner that can fold up for convenient storage.
It’s 12 amp motor give this vacuum plenty of power for suction, but this vacuum goes one step further and introduces a 3 inch air path so that you get maximum suction without losing power because there are no long air tubes for the dirt to travel down – just 3 inches. It’s wide 12 inch cleaning path means you get even more clean carpet for each sweep of the vacuum.
The Electrolux EL5020A Intensity has fingertip controls and easy switching from bare floor to carpet mode. In carpet mode, the cleaning head will automatically adjust to the height of the carpet, while the spinning brushroll ensures the carpet dirt is agitated for a deeper clean.
The HEPA filtration system ensures airborne allergens aren’t umped directly back into the atmosphere during vacuuming, which means you get cleaner air in your home as well as cleaner carpets and flooring.
Also a nice feature are the indicator lights which tell you when the bag needs to be emptied or the filter needs to be cleaned. These two will ensure your Electrolux EL5020A Intensity works at optimum suction while you are cleaning.
The power cord is a little short at 21 foot long, when compared to other vacuums, but this may not be a problem for you. The large quart capacity dirt bag and adjustable telescopic handle make this a very comfortable vacuum cleaner to use.
