DESIGNED FOR CARPETS AND HARD FLOORS - The stylish FELIX offers all the flexibility of a canister vacuum in an upright configuration. It has a "flex" neck with amazing maneuverability, an ultra-modern filtration system, a detachable suction unit that becomes a hand-held vacuum, and an instant-use suction hose. The power head deep cleans carpets or its brush can be shut off to clean delicate rugs. The FELIX also has a parquet brush for hard floors, or it can morph into a polisher using the DISCO head. The brush roller is removable, and a light illuminates if it is set too high or is worn, and it shuts off if jammed.
SEBO 98XXAM 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 98XXAM Features:
FELIX Premium Model
Along with a commercial quality power head, the FELIX Premium comes standard with a crevice tool, upholstery nozzle and a parquet brush.
A unique 180 degree turning swivel neck offers superb maneuverability around and under furniture.
Variable Suction Control on Handle with Soft Start
The user can select the suction power needed, from curtains to carpet. And its gradual power-up extends motor life.
Instant-use Suction Hose
The integrated instant-use suction hose is always ready.
Pull it out to clean corners, crevices or furniture.
Two on-board tools and a range of optional attachments can be fitted to the hose, such as a wand for cleaning hard-to-reach areas or a ninefoot extension hose.
Detachable Suction Unit Creates a Hand-held Portable Vacuum
By removing its power head, the FELIX instantly transforms from an upright floor vacuum into a handheld portable vacuum, ideal for cleaning stairs, upholstery and car interiors.
It can be easily carried using its alternative side handle or its shoulder strap attachment.
A Flat-to-the-floor 6-inch Profile
The vacuum's low profile makes cleaning under furniture and beds easy.
Two Power Head Widths with One-sided Edge Cleaning
The FELIX 1 Premium model is 12 inches wide with a 10 1/2 inch cleaning path.
The FELIX 2 Premium - Ice Blue is 14 3/4 inches wide with a 13-inch cleaning path.
Multi-surface Cleaning Capabilities
With a power brush for carpets and a parquet brush for hard floors, the FELIX provides all the cleaning flexibility of a canister vacuum. It can also morph into a hard floor polisher, by adding a SEBO DISCO head (sold separately).
Four-level Manual Brush Height Adjustment
The brush can be adjusted up or down for optimal cleaning effectiveness.
Brush Obstruction Light with Automatic Brush Shut Off
If an obstruction jams the brush roller, an orange warning light on the power head illuminates and the brush roller stops spinning.
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 because of wear, an orange warning light on the power head remains illuminated during use.
The light shuts off when the condition is corrected.
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.
Manual and Automatic Brush Shut Off
The FELIX can gently clean delicate rugs or hard floors because the brush roller can be manually switched off, but suction remains on, by pressing the green illuminated on/off button on the power head cover.
Also, the brush roller automatically shuts off when the suction hose is removed from its housing port or when the handle is in its upright locked position.
Three-level Adjustable Handle
This feature provides compact storage, maneuverability when suction unit is detached, and easy adjustment to user height requirements.
Full Bag or Clog Indicator
When a full bag, a clog in the airflow, or an excessively dirty microfilter is detected, an indicator gauge "fills" with orange color and an airflow bypass valve opens, to prevent overheating and motor damage from a lack of adequate airflow.
