    About this item

    The Eureka Rally 2 Canister Vacuum strikes the elusive, optimum balance between lightweight portability and robustness to provide unparalleled efficiency in the cleaning process. Weighing less than 12 pounds, this compact canister vacuum helps you choose from floor types to suit different cleaning surfaces. For instance, you can switch from bare floor to carpeted areas at the flick of a button, which adapts the cleaning process to conform to the change in surface. A cursory glance at the bag change indicator reveals if the bag needs to be emptied. You can set the height of the handle to suit your convenience using the adjustable telescopic handle. The hose swivels in 360 facilitating hassle free vacuuming in all directions while the 17-feet power cord lets you cover large areas without resorting to a different power outlet. The automatic cord rewind vacuum lets you rewind the cord using a cord-rewind button so you can store the Eureka vacuum cleaner with ease.

    After 25 years of reliable service, the motor on my Eureka Mighty Mite canister vacuum finally bit the dust. I was afraid that I would discover that "they don't make 'em like they used to." To the contrary, the new model offers many improvements relative to the classic model. The maneuverability of the canister unit is excellent, and the maneuveribility of the vacuum head is outstanding (the swivel joint and micro wheels are ingenious). The auto cord retract feature is super convenient. The metal wand is much more durable than the plastic wands on most other models, and it stays together better. The fact that the canister can store in an upright position makes it much easier to fit into my closet. Last but not least, the suction is more powerful than my classic model. ---- What don't I like? The dust bag on this model is much smaller than the bag on my classic old model. It doesn't come with a floor brush as standard (although the brush from my old model fits the new wand just fine). I'm not sure how durable the auto cord rewind mechanism will be (it feels like it will be the first thing to go). ---- This model is designed for hard floors, rugs, stairs, upholstery, etc. It does not have a beater bar in the vacuum head, so it would not be a good choice for lots of wall-to-wall carpeting. For the kitchen, hallways, etc., it's ideal, since it's powerful, light, and maneuverable. ---- Overall, I'm thrilled with the new vacuum. I wish I'd traded in my old classic years ago; the new model is clearly superior. ---- I researched comparable models pretty carefully before choosing this one. Interestingly, Amazon and other online stores didn't seem to carry this model, which is the only one that had all the features I wanted.

    Unit is lightweight but rugged enough to last if it is taken care of. T type bags are non-existant in stores so look elsewhere and stock up. Works very well on hard surface floors and steps. Cord is a little on the short side so buy a 25' extention cord to keep with the unit.

    It's a great vacuum for the price and for what it is. I only have hardwoods, so I'm not sure, if it's strong enough for carpet. But for my needs I love it. The only thing is, I wish the cord would be a little longer.

    I love this vac! I have arthritis and it's very hard for me to lug around my upright for cobwebs, this vac is easy to use ,comes with a great attachment for upholstery & curtains. I have to order bags because their a little hard to find, but ,it's worth it ! Glad I bought it , I'm very pleased!

    Bought this after reading reviews. It is a fantastic machine. The wand expands to various heights so it's easy to put away, yet adjusts to be comfortable when using. It maneuvers easily and is light enough to carry. Retractable cord works great so far. Wish it was a bit longer.

    I have never had a canister vacuum before. I am not sure if it is good for tall people

    • A. hey i dont know if you have ever seen a back pack vacuum cleaner but they are awesome for tall people...unfortunately they are a few hundred dollars. luckily though....this vacuum is around 10 pounds and can fit into a regular back pack. all you have to do is cut 3 holes - 1 for the hose, 1 for the cord and 1 for the heat fan vent....i think you will love this vacuum if you try to do that! i recommend this vacuum to everyone! also you can get hose attatchments to make the hose longer so you wont have to worry about bending over at all. good luck!

    • A. I'm 5' 9". I'd have to say that you need to have a sense of how you will use the vacuum. Today's "serious" uprights also do have the hoses, tubes, and common attachments. Do you have high ceilings? With uprights, in order to reach certain high areas, you may have to lift, and eve hold, the body of the upright--that's inconvenient, unnatural, and always far heavier than this (the hoses and plastic wands for uprights must be shorter than than the one for this). With this, given it's generous hose and adjustable wand (depending upon the height of your walls and fixtures)--you likely won't have to lift the canister body. If you do need to, though, it's far lighter and less unwieldy than an upright . An upright is far more convenient for large floors--you won't drag anything, except the cord. On the other hand, the versatile wands and heads for canisters are far more convenient for vacuuming underneath furniture, the tops of cabinets, fan blades, etc. Background: The old canisters and some rare extremely pricey ones available these days are metal. This is mostly plastic, yet, it sports a better stainless-steel wand than previous economy models. Of course, these are heavier than economy models. My mother has a decades-old Hoover, mostly metal--as indicated above. She complains about the small wheels on canisters. These economy models have similar problems--the two big wheels on the back, unfortunately, are inset--this defeats, at least somewhat, the purpose of those wheels; the front wheel is tiny, yet it does swivel. At this price level, a "power-head" simply won't exist. (A power-head is a motorized head--supplied with power from the canister via a cord inset into the wand. This luxury feature is the canister's "answer" to the powerful rotating brushes of non-stick vac "serious" uprights.Today's canister models with power-heads are heavier and far pricier than economy models. Naturally, such heads themselves are heavier--thus, some people prefer the lighter, lesser head--generally included as an alternative.) In the recent past, economy models usually were bagless--this is bad for spreading allergens. This does use a bag and features a stainless-steel wand, so, I'll give it a whirl.

    • A. I work for Eureka, and the model 972B Maxima has a metal telescopic wand to adjust for different heights of individuals. We had a coworker, who is six feet tall test the hose, wands, and nozzle and he could comfortably vacuum without bending or stooping. I understand from your question you have never used a canister before, so want to let you know while this will clean carpet, it will not deep clean plush carpet like an upright or canister with power nozzle. This is a straight suction canister and does not have a rotating brush like an upright, which picks up hair and lint, plus vibrates and spreads the carpet fibers to loosen embedded dirt. The Maxima is mainly designed to clean hard surface floors, above the floor cleaning, and light area rug cleaning.

    • A. Earlier today, I saw some nominally-priced packs of three Arm & Hammer deodorizing bags hanging next to the display model. I just noted, also, that one may order 9-packs at Wal-Mart's site. By now, Arm & Hammer and Wal-Mart likely have taken care of availability at all Supercenters and, certainly, online. I purchased this vacuum, as well as a pack of three bags, several hours ago. (I had never heard of style T.) Nine-packs may be available at our Supercenters here, also--I didn't notice--I'll check again.

    • A. I work for Eureka and some Wal-Mart stores carry this bag, but only the stores that carry the canister as well. The bag style is T, and a nine pack will be available on Walmart.com in the next two weeks if your local Wal-Mart does not have the bag in their assortment. We recommend using the Arm & Hammer bags we manufacture for Wal-Mart to our customers.
