Sebo Airbelt D4
It's not often that Sebo puts out a new product, as this is a company that sticks with what works best. The Airbelt D4 is a marked improvement over the old Airbelt C series, with a sleek new design that houses all of Sebo's trademark features. The three-level S-class air filtration system (3-layer dust bag, pre-motor filter, exhaust filter) is advertised as being 'hospital grade', though most users will simply comment about the lack of 'vacuum odor'. The 1250-watt motor allows the Airbelt D4 to extract stubborn dirt and pet hair from carpet, and the power brush head can be swapped out for a parquet brush for use on bare floors. New to the Airbelt D models is a 40 foot cord, meaning the total cleaning range from one outlet is a handy 50 feet. The dustbag is slightly larger than the Airbelt C, meaning you'll get more cleaning out of a single bag before it needs replacement. The vacuum itself isn't overly light at just under 16 pounds, but this is a much more manageable weight to carry around than the competition.
