In 1978, two engineers, with a vision of a cleaning system unlike anything ever produced, founded SEBO in Velbert, Germany. Since then, SEBO has become the manufacturer of the finest quality commercial-grade vacuum cleaners in the world. They've sold more than four million units to markets in Europe, Asia, Africa and North America, with cumulative sales exceeding one billion dollars. They also manufacture private-label machines for some of the top distributors in the world and are the preferred vacuum cleaner of the top hotels, hospitals, universities and government institutions worldwide . . . even The White House and Buckingham Palace!
SEBO vacuums have received awards and recognition from Better Homes and Gardens, Consumer's Digest, TIME, Real Simple, Wired Test and other magazines. Their future-forward, technological breakthroughs in the science of cleaning are without precedent in the industry.
SEBO's first shipment to the U.S.A. was in 1979 for commercial cleaning customers, followed by its duo-P Cleaning Powder in 1984, and its household vacuums were launched in 1997.
DESIGNED FOR CARPETS - The sturdy and lightweight ESSENTIAL G is a technically advanced upright vacuum. It features an electronic controller that acts as a brain, monitoring a warning system that not only alerts the user to problems such as clogs, a worn brush, a full bag, brush obstructions, and when brush height is set too high for optimum cleaning, but it also automatically shuts off the vacuum, when necessary, to protect the motor and belts from damage. And it offers manual brush height adjustment, years of reliability, a convenient instant-use cleaning wand and suction hose, and an exterior housing with a scratch and scuff-resistant matte finish.
Instant-use Wand and Suction Hose
The integrated instant-use wand and suction hose are always ready. Just pull out either tool, or both together, to clean hard-to-reach corners, edges and crevices. The wand and hose together have an eight-foot reach.
A Low 5 1/2" Profile
Lower the handle flat to the floor to clean under beds, or lower it to the intermediate stop position to maneuver over rugs. Depress the foot pedal again to bypass the intermediate stop position, or close it by moving the handle-position slider.
Four-level Manual Brush Height Adjustment
The brush height can be manually adjusted up or down for optimal cleaning effectiveness.
Brush Obstruction Light with Automatic Shut Off
If an obstruction jams the brush roller, the red "check brush" warning light flashes quickly, the brush roller immediately stops spinning, and the vacuum shuts off.
This feature prevents the belts from breaking and protects the motor and carpet from damage.
Incorrect Height Setting or Worn Brush Light
When the brush height is set too high for optimal cleaning or when the brush roller should be replaced due to wear, the red "check brush" warning light remains illuminated during use. (The vacuum will not automatically shut off.)
Easy Brush Removal and Cleaning
Cleaning hair or other debris from the brush roller or replacing it when its bristles are worn is quick and easy, and no tools are required! This feature ensures consistently effective brush agitation of the carpet pile.
Bag Full or Clog Light with Automatic Shut Off
When a full bag, a clog in the airflow pathway, or an excessively dirty microfilter is detected, the red "bag full or clog" warning light illuminates and the machine automatically shuts off after 60 seconds.
Soft Start Feature
The vacuum's gradual power-up capability extends motor life.
Durable Matte Finish
The ESSENTIAL G has an exterior housing with a special matte finish that is extra scratch and scuff-resistant, so it looks great even after years of use.
Combination Carrying Handle with Rotating Cord Hook
The vacuum is easy to carry, or quickly unwind the cord, using its unique handle with integrated rotating cord hook.
Three On-board Full-size Tools and Large Filter Bag
The ESSENTIAL G comes standard with a crevice tool, dusting brush, upholstery nozzle, and a large 1.4-gallon filter bag. Also, many optional accessories are available.
Two Power Head Widths with One-sided Edge Cleaning
The ESSENTIAL G1 is 12 inches wide with a 10 1/2 inch cleaning path.
The ESSENTIAL G2 is 15 inches wide with a 13 1/4 inch cleaning path.
Both heads have one-sided edge cleaning.
Durable Heavy-duty Belts
The reinforced toothed belts do not slip or stretch, resulting in a more efficient use of power, and they should last the life of the machine.
