The AIRBELT K model is a mid-size, powerful and lightweight canister vacuum featuring clever storage of its three on-board attachments, easy bag changes, remarkably quiet operation, rubber-coated wheels to protect floor surfaces, quick-release connections, a full bag or clog warning light, and a soft bumper to protect the vacuum, furniture and walls from scuffs and scratches.
SEBO 9696AM Description:
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.
SEBO 9696AM Features:
Turbo Brush - No Power Head
AIRBELT K2 models have telescopic tubes and hoses without power cords, so they do not accommodate electric power brushes.
Instead, the K2 Hunter Green comes with an air-driven turbo brush for cleaning carpet and a parquet brush, like the K3, for cleaning hard floors.
Variable Suction Control on Canister Body
Because the AIRBELT K2 has a hose and handle without a power cord, its variable suction control switch is located on the canister body, not the handle.
Mid-size Canister Vacuum
The SEBO AIRBELT K3 and K2 are considered mid-size canister vacuums, which means they are small or compact machines.
They offer one mid-size and two full-size on-board attachments, a .8-gallon filter bag and an operating range of 32 feet.
The K-model canisters weigh four pounds less than SEBO's C-model canisters.
A Flat-to-the-floor 3 1/4 inch Profile
The vacuum's low profile makes cleaning under furniture and beds easy.
Three On-board Tools
The SEBO AIRBELT K models come standard with a crevice tool, dusting brush and upholstery nozzle.
Also, many optional attachments are available that can be fitted to the telescopic tube or the hose handle.
Large Operating Range
A 32-foot operating range, with a 20-foot cord, saves time because it minimizes the number of electrical outlets needed during use.
Tug and Retract Cord Rewinder
The AIRBELT K models offer a "tug and retract" cord re-winder, instead of a control switch cord re-winder, which is offered on the AIRBELT C models.
Full Bag or Clog Light
When a full bag, a clog in the airflow pathway, or an excessively dirty microfilter is detected, an orange warning light illuminates and an airflow bypass valve opens.
This feature prevents overheating and motor damage from a lack of adequate airflow.
Comfortable Ergonomic Handle
AIRBELT vacuum handles are ergonomically designed and positioned to reduce wrist and arm fatigue. For extra comfort, an additional swivel is built into the handle-to-hose connection.
The AIRBELT C and K vacuums allow for quick and convenient connection of telescopic tubes, power brush heads, accessory cleaning nozzles and on-board tools.
Rubber-coated Wheels with High-quality Castors
The wheels and castors on SEBO canisters prevent damage to floors and smoothly rotate 360 degrees for easy maneuverability.
Personalized Bumpers Diffuse Exhaust Air and Protect Walls and Furniture
The AIRBELT C and K canisters can be personalized with a replacement AIRBELT bumper cover, available in eight patterns and colors.
Bumper covers surround both the AIRBELT C and K canisters to protect furniture, walls, and the vacuum itself from incurring scuffs and scratches during use.
The bumper also serves to diffuse filtered exhaust air, as it exits the vacuum through hidden ports beneath the bumper's soft textile cover.
This design provides an ultra-quiet gentle flow of exhaust air.
