Electrolux UltraSilencer Green Canister Vacuum Cleaner Review
Combining the design with user-friendly features, this canister vacuum cleaner makes it easy to keep the home clean, from top to bottom. The portable unit maneuvers smoothly from room to room on two large wheels, and it transitions effortlessly from carpets and rugs to bare-floor surfaces like tile, linoleum, or hardwood. Simply slide the lever on the carpet/hard-floor nozzle into position – from “normal” to “brush”.
For above-floor cleaning, the vacuum provides an array of on-board attachments including a telescopic tube, a hose and hose handle, a crevice tool, and a combination nozzle/brush for curtains, bookshelves, frames, and more.
Other highlights include a high-efficiency motor, low noise output of only 60 dB, a replaceable motor filter, and a bag-full indicator. This canister vacuum comes with a special foot-activated on and off button and a carrying handle. The adjustable suction power feature offers suction control on the vacuum cleaner as well as on the hose handle. When finished, a foot pedal rewinds the cord into the unit for compact storage. Also, an ‘S dust bag’ comes included.
With 20′ cord and 6′ hose, this vacuum cleaner on large and soft wheels can easily reach every corner of your home.
Canister vacuum cleaners use a bag for storing the dirt on-board. Electrolux UltraSilencer Green Canister Vacuum Cleaner is no exception from this rule. Here are some bags and accessories that might interest you!

Comparable Electrolux Canister Vacuums
Since we are talking about a canister vacuum that is rather hard to find, let’s check out some of the newer canister vacuum cleaners that come under the Sanitaire or Eureka brands.
- The Sanitaire S3681D Sanitaire Mighty Mite Canister Vacuum;
- The Eureka Mighty Mite 3670G Corded Canister Vacuum Cleaner with 2 bags.
If you are into older models from Electrolux, however, check out our guide and review on the Electrolux EL4021A Black Silent Performer Cyclonic Bagless Canister Vacuum. As we said when we reviewed it,
It is a compact, but powerful canister bagless vacuum cleaner. The EL4021A Black Silent Performer comes with two-floor cleaning heads, 3-in-1 cleaning attachment, very good air filtration, and few more features making it a very interesting choice for people who prefer low-maintenance, easy-to-use canister vacuums.
One of our personal favorites, nevertheless, is the Electrolux EL4335 Corded UltraFlex Canister Vacuum. It is a versatile canister vacuum cleaner, suitable for cleaning various surfaces ranging from low-to-high pile carpets, hard floors, stairs, upholstery, and other surfaces commonly found at homes and apartments. The main cleaning tool is a motorized, self-cleaning brush roll with adjustable height. It also comes with a sealed, bagless, true HEPA air filter cleaning system. Above all, the Electrolux El4335 also sports a respectable 5-year warranty.
The only issue with these vacuum cleaners is that they are quite hard to find. If you have trouble, look for their closest replacement vacuums. We also suggest you consider the Miele Complete C3 Canister Vacuums. They are corded canister vacuums that offer plenty of reliable tech specs and features, good air filtration, good suction power, and a handful of useful attachments for thorough cleaning from floor to the ceiling.
