Why the Riccar R10P is my favorite vacuum cleaner.
People ask me "What's the best vacuum cleaner?" I've never been comfortable with that question, because what's best for one person, may not be the best for another. That's why we carry dozens of makes and models in our store. I often respond saying, "The best vacuum cleaner is the one you like to use."
Although I sell many good vacuum cleaners, I do have a favorite. That would the Riccar R10P. This is the one I choose over any other when I need to clean the store. It's the one I use in my own house. It's the one I'd buy. Here's why:
#2. Ease of use. Even though I sell other vacuums that deliver similar performance to the R10P, I choose this one because it's half the weight of them. To me, it is like a high performance sports car. It maneuvers quickly and easily and it's not clunky awkward or cumbersome. It glides into hard to reach areas effortlessly, and allows me to get the task done quickly, without losing my breath. It has a 40 foot cord, so I can vacuum practically the entire house, changing outlets only once.
#3. It's high quality. This machine is made to last decades, not months. If you turn the machine upside-down, you'll find a robust solid steel brush roller. It spins at high speeds resulting in carpet agitation that is not possible in machines that have sparsely bristled, lightweight plastic agitators. Look at the brush on a typical Chinese made vacuum and see the difference! The Riccar R10P also has replaceable brush strips so they can be exchanged when they wear, rather than having to throw away the entire roller. It's constructed of metal in all the high wear areas, and other parts are made of impact resistant ABS plastic similar to that of a football helmet. Even the wheels roll on bearings, rather than plastic "snap in" construction.
#4. Low maintenance. Vacuum belt replacement is the most common maintenance task that we perform in our store. When belts break or stretch, customers often don't realize that their vacuum is performing poorly until weeks or months later. The Riccar R10P, however, has a lifetime belt that never needs to be replaced. It also uses an innovative dust capturing system that is absolutely the cleanest, easiest and most sanitary method in the industry. You have to see it to understand, but it's as close to a perfect system as I have ever seen. As a vacuum service technician, I find that washing filters and dust bowls is very unpleasant and far more time consuming.
Of course, this review of the Riccar R10P is my opinion. My opinion, however, is derived from many years in the vacuum industry, and extensive experience servicing and repairing over 20,000 vacuum cleaners of nearly every brand and model ever made. That said, we have dozens of other vacuums to choose from, and some may have certain features that are essential to you. Like I said, what's best for me, may not be best for you. Come into my store, and I will do my best to help you find the vacuum that is just right for you.

The SEBO X4 is another Sprague's favorite. It's not just smart, it's brilliant. It senses flooring height and electronically adjusts from bare floors to the deepest pile shags. There's also no need to guess when the bag is full, or when the brush is worn. It tells you. It even shuts itself off if there is a brush obstruction to protect the belt and motor. There's no easier machine to maintian either, as it completely disassembles without tools.
