Guide Review - Eureka The Boss Lite

The Eureka Boss Lite is a no-frills, very inexpensive upright vacuum cleaner. While it does not include the extras that more expensive vacuums have, such as a HEPA Filter or headlight, The Boss Lite does an excellent job vacuuming up dirt and pet hair from the carpet. It leaves the carpet looking and feeling clean. The onboard cleaning tools work well for cleaning along walls and for upholstery and car cleaning. The bags are Style AA, are easy to find at most stores and are simple to replace. The Boss is very lightweight, too, so it's easy to push quickly around the carpeting.
