What You Should Know About The SEBO FELIX 1 Premium
The stylish FELIX and DART offer all the flexibility of canister vacuums, but in upright configurations! They also include two on-board attachments, a convenient instant-use suction hose, an ultra-modern filtration system, and a detachable suction unit that can be used as a hand-held vacuum, or even morph into a hard-floor polisher by attaching SEBO’s DISCO head.
Their power heads feature excellent pet hair removal, four-level height adjustment, carpet and hard floor cleaning ability, tool-free brush roller removal, manual brush roller shut off that enables straight-suction cleaning, and an L-shaped contour that makes cleaning under counters easy! They even have a warning light that illuminates to notify users when brush height is set too high for optimal performance, its bristles are worn, or when automatic shut off occurs due to brush roller obstructions.
Importantly, however, the FELIX has some additional features that are not available on the DART, such as 180° steering ability, variable suction control with soft start, a hard-floor parquet brush attachment, adjustable handle height, and automatic brush roller shut off when using the integrated suction hose.
Bagged vs. Bagless . . . Bags are Better! – Top-fill, three and four-layer Ultra Bags are an integral part of SEBO’s filtration system because they hold virtually all the dirt captured by the vacuum, which improves the effectiveness and useful life of the microfilters. They also ensure continuously strong suction because dirt enters from the top, deposits at the bottom, accumulates upward, and air exits through the sides, which allows unimpeded airflow as they fill to capacity. And they can be tightly sealed with a hygiene cap when full, so no dust can escape into the air during bag removal and disposal.
In contrast, without bags to hold nearly all the captured dirt, the microfilters on bagless vacuums quickly clog from excessive dirt build-up and must be replaced often, or a loss of suction and cleaning effectiveness will occur. In addition, dust and other allergens become airborne when emptying bagless dirt containers. Lastly, bagless vacuum microfilters are expensive, usually costing more than a multi-year supply of SEBO filter bags.
Changing Bags is Easy and Clean – SEBO filter bags can be changed in just a few seconds, and a hygiene cap keeps dust sealed inside during removal and disposal.
SEBO FELIX 1 Premium in Action
SEBO FELIX 1 Premium Upright Vacuum Manual and Specifications
STANDARD FEATURES OF ALL SEBO VACUUMS
Designed and Manufactured in Germany – Legendary quality, reliability and performance make SEBO vacuums the choice of cleaning professionals throughout the world.
The World’s Best Pet Vacuums – Because of superior power-head technology, SEBO vacuums are the world’s best for pet hair removal!Excellent for Users With Allergies or Asthma – The British Allergy Foundation recommends SEBO filters.
Tightly Sealed Hospital-grade Filtration – Dirty air, which flows through a vacuum, can only be filtered completely if it does not escape into the room through seams or seals in the machine. This is why all SEBO vacuums have tight seals throughout.
Many vacuum companies with high-filtration claims are actually quoting specifications made by the manufacturer of the filter material, as measured in the laboratory, not the filtration effectiveness of the vacuum itself while operating. Whether or not dirty air can escape through leaks in the body of the machine is not considered. The filtration effectiveness of SEBO vacuums is tested while they operate.
Reliable, Commercial-grade Components – All SEBO vacuums are constructed with thick, reinforced ABS plastic, aluminum and metal parts, steel axles and bearings and high-end, quality motors. Therefore, SEBO users own reliable, long-lasting vacuum cleaners. Competing vacuums are made with thin, flimsy, inexpensive plastic materials, none of which are reinforced, and typically have a useful lifespan of one or two years (i.e., disposable vacuums).
Rubber Wheels and Bumpers Protect Homes – Smooth-gliding rubber wheels protect hard floors and provide exceptional maneuverability. In addition, the bumpers that surround the power heads and the soft AIRBELT bumpers that surround SEBO’s canisters protect furniture, walls and vacuum housings from incurring scuffs and scratches during use.
High-tech Brush Roller Technology – SEBO’s brush rollers are uniquely designed to funnel hair and debris into the power heads’ airflow channel, which improves vacuum cleaning performance on all flooring surfaces.
Changing Bags is Easy and Clean – SEBO filter bags can be changed in just a few seconds, and a cap keeps dust sealed inside during removal and disposal.
Save Money! SEBO Vacuums Last for Years! – If properly maintained, SEBO vacuums save ordinary residential users hundreds of dollars by providing excellent performance for ten to fifteen years or more, and their deep-cleaning power-brush technology extends the life of carpets. Typical vacuums perform poorly, even when new, and usually do not last beyond two years. So six or seven “disposable vacuums” must be purchased during the average life expectancy of just one SEBO machine.
Free Warranty – All SEBO models include a FREE seven-year warranty on the motor, and a five-year warranty on non-wear parts and labor charges. The AUTOMATIC X models include a lifetime warranty on the belts.
