Riccar R50SS Prima Straight Suction canister vacuum is designed to clean hard floors and low pile rugs or carpets. Terrific suction for hard floors and comes with the best floor tool with a microfiber pad. Not only pick up loose dirt, hair and debris but also the microfiber pad gets up the film on the floors due to cooking grease, humidity and damp foot steps. The carpet tool it comes with is a turbine (air driven) nozzle. It will comb and groom the top surface of a carpet or rug. Extremely quiet for the maximum amount of suction power this canister has. Sealed HEPA filtration with a certified HEPA bag but also a HEPA cartridge filter that captures down to .03 micros of particles.
