Heavy Duty Sebo Vacuum Cleaner
Sebo is a manufacturer of premiums upright and canister vacuums. A Sebo vacuum can only be bought from an authorized Sebo vacuum cleaner dealer. They are incredibly durable and thoughtfully designed for ease of use. They also produce very low emissions thanks to a high end multi-step filtration system, and are highly recommend for removing pet hair from carpet.
Sebo vacuums have the lowest rate of repair of any vacuum brand I have ever been familiar with. The Heavy duty design of there entire product line is reflected in there durability. If you buy a Sebo, expect to have it for a long time. Sebo vacuums have received very favorable reviews and ratings from European and American household and pet publications.
Most Sebo uprights ( like the Automatic X, G, and Felix series) can be taken apart without tools. This includes removal of the brush roller, which you can extract from the vacuum to remove any hair or string that might have become entangled. If you accidentally pick up something by accident that clogged up the vacuum, your Sebo upright can be taken apart by hand to locate and remove any obstructions. The belts are "lifetime" belts as Sebo calls them, so all you need to do is replace the bags and filters to maintain the vacuum properly.
The Sebo 370, G series, and Automatic X series are commercial quality upright vacuum cleaners. They all share a similar design and the same powerful suction. The G series is specifically for carpet, while the Automatic X series can vacuum any surface. Both Sebo upright series are available with an extra wide head if desired for increased coverage.
The Sebo Felix is a very unique vacuum, in that the powerhead can be remove and the Felix can be used a portable vacuum. It weighs about 9 lbs. in this mode, and can be used to vacuum stairs, drapes or furniture. It's available in four different designs. The Sebo Felix is the most versatile upright vacuum on the market right now, winning praise from various publications.
The Sebo C and K series canister are also very heavy duty and produce very low emissions. Certain canister models may offer a choice between an air driven powerhead or an electric model. The air driven adjust automatically to different carpet heights while the belt driven powerhead has a manual adjustment on the head. I prefer belt driven powerheads, but you really can't go wrong here. The main difference between the C and K series Sebo canister product line is the size of the vacuums and the type of attachments included.

Must Have Sebo Vacuum Attachments and Supplies
Sebo makes high quality vacuum cleaner bags and filters for it's upright and canister vacuum series. They also have make some very useful attachments that make using a Sebo vacuum that much easier. Here's a few quick tips on purchasing replacement bags and parts for a Sebo.
Sebo vacuum cleaner bags and filters are designed for optimal performance we don't recommend using generic replacements. The bags and filters play a vital role in limiting the emissions of your vacuum, which is beneficial to asthma, allergys sufferers and any small children in your household. The high filtration abilities of these parts combined with the design of you Sebo vacuum creates one of the best vacuum cleaner filtration systems available. Using generic replacement parts in this instance can result in a loss in filtration performance.
We recommend changing those filters once a year. Sebo sells vacuum bags and what are refferred to as Service Boxes, which include all of the filters for your vacuum. Depending on what model vacuum you have, there might be a Service Box available or you just buy the filters seperately.
If you have or your planning to buy a Sebo X, G, or 370 series upright vacuum, I strongly recommend the 9 foot long extension hose (Sebo 1495AM) and the Sebo 6127DA hand held turbo brush. The turbo brush has a roller that is powered by the suction of your vacuum. This set makes cleaning stairs and hard to reach areas very feasible. Vacuuming stairs with any regular sized vacuum can be clumsy, so using an extended setup to increase your reach make a lot of sense.
For Sebo Felix owners, buy the dusting brush. For some reason Sebo doesn't includes this cleaning tool with any of the upright Felix models. Dusting brushes are really necessary for cleaning blinds, framing around windows, corner of walls, etc. These is also a radiator brush that attaches the crevice tool for difficult to reach areas. Sebo Felix vacuums can be broken down in to a portable canister, so you can actually clean stairs without buying any additional accessories.
Sebo Felix owners also have the option of purchasing the floor polishing head. Sebo refers to this as a "Disco Head". The polishing head actually attaches to the bottom of the Sebo Felix where the powerbrush is. You remove the powerbrush and snap the polishing head on the vacuum cleaner and your ready to go. This Sebo Disco Head has 2,000 rpm disc speed, automatic height adjustment, and a Suction duct.
Any other Sebo vacuum parts you will need are probably going to be replacement parts. Sebo gives access to all of these parts to authorized dealers, so if you loose a cleaning tool or break something you will be able to find that part in the color that matches your vacuum.
