The floor attachment that is included with the Samsung Air 5100C is a combination Rug/Floor tool, which allows a set of retractable brushes to come out for cleaning smooth surface floors, and retract into the head for vacuum carpets or rugs.
The Samsung Air canister 5100C is ideal for homes with a majority of bare surfaces, and justa few area rugs, or low piled carpets. Because the floor attachment is just straight suction (no rotating brushes) this machine is not recommended for homes with a majority of wall to wall carpets, of for the homes with pet hair and carpeting. The vacuum weighs in at only 6 lbs, so transporting the vacuum up and down the stairs is a breeze, and come to think of it, vacuuming the stairs on the way up or down is just as easy! The vacuum is perfect for taking out and cleaning cars, stairs, upholstery, quick pick ups on bare surfaces, and clenaing low piled carpets. With an automatic cord reel, never have to wind the cord back up when you are done vacuuming, simply press the cord release pedal, and it neatly retracts back into the canister part of the vacuum.
1 Year Parts and Labor Warranty is included with the vacuum, as well as 2 vacuum bags.
What people are saying: (1)
- Not up to Samsung standards
Pros: Attractive, compact, light, powerful motor/suction, good adjustable length handle, stores wand when upright or horizontal, good for small house with hardwood floors & short nap carpets, good value. Cons: EXTREMELY LOUD! Poor ergonomics -no carry handle where you need it when upright. Crevice tool is too short. Brush tool bristles are stiff/poor quality. Bags are very small -fill up fast & lose suction quickly. Bag hold-down device was defective -such a nuisance that I had to remove it -works well without it. On/off pedal is little difficult to actuate. Bottom Line: I would buy a bigger, quieter more expensive unit next time. I miss my old Samsung Quiet Jet.
