Collection: Canister Vacuums

Canister vacuums are more versatile and have more power than upright vacuums.

Canister vacuums are easier to use for someone with physical limitations.

Rather than pushing and pulling the full device across the floor, the majority of a canister vacuum sits stationary while you use the lightweight wand and the attached head to clean.
This difference is especially noticeable when vacuuming stairs and tight spaces.


Canister vacuums separate the motor and dirt container from the handle and (power) head. A hose connects the handle and head to a canister which houses the motor and dirt container.

Canister vacuums are usually quieter, provide better suction for bare floors, and cost more.

Canister vacuums are usually quieter than that average—around 60-65 decibels.
