Eureka Commercial Upright Vacuum Cleaner Review

Review of the Eureka Commercial Upright Vacuum Cleaner

The C5712A is an upright style vacuum that is built for rugged residential use or commercial use. This vacuum uses disposable bags and replaceable filters.

The C5712A weighs approximately 17 pounds, and is available for about $217. Eureka backs the C5712A with a 1 year parts and labor warranty.

Eureka Commercial Upright Features:

  • Sealed HEPA Filtration
  • Long Power Cord
  • Headlight
  • On Board Tools

Sealed HEPA Filtration:

If you have allergy sufferers in your home, you probably know how important HEPA filtration can be to their health. HEPA filters remove 99.97% of all particles with a diameter of 3 microns or larger. A sealed system ensures all air passing through the vacuum is forced through the HEPA filter, and not reintroduced to your environment.

Long Power Cord:

There is nothing more frustrating than continually having to search for electric outlets while vacuuming. The C5712A comes equipped with a 40 foot long cord. You’ll be able to vacuum instead of looking for available outlets.


Not all model vacuums are manufactured with a headlight. You’ll appreciate how much easier it is to see under furniture or in poorly lit areas when you use the C5712A.

On Board Tools:

The C5712A also comes with a few onboard tools. It comes with a crevice tool, and a dusting brush. The stretch hose allows you to reach into corners and crannies that you might not to be otherwise get to, as well as to reach areas aboe the ground.

Eureka Commercial Upright Recommendations:

Mrs Clean does not recommend this vacuum. Simply because the Cons outweigh the Pros with this model.


The vacuum has height adjustment so you can adjust the height of the beater bar depending on the surface you are vacuuming. This model has 6 levels of height adjustment.


The vacuum uses bags, be prepared to keep an adequate supply of bags in your supply room, so you don’t run out at some inopportune time. Vacuum bags can be difficult to find. Be prepared to replace filters also.

The C5712A is manufactured mostly out of plastic parts. This means the vacuum is lightweight, but plastic is not as sturdy as metal.

The beater bar on this model vacuum can’t be shut off. This means the vacuum is probably not safe on all flooring surfaces; you run the risk of scratching wood floors if you use this vacuum on them.

The cleaning path on this vacuum is not very wide. The C5712A has a narrow, (in comparison to other upright vacuums) 13 inch wide cleaning path. You may find it takes longer to vacuum larger areas, just due to the fact that you’ll have to make multiple passes with this vacuum.
