The AUTOMATIC X is the world’s most technically advanced and uniquely easy-to-use vacuum cleaner! Available in two power head widths, the 12-inch X7 and 15-inch X8 feature truly automatic height adjustment, using an electronic controller that measures the resistance of the spinning brush roller against the floor surface to signal up or down adjustments, which ensures optimal performance on both carpets and hard floors. The user is also alerted to clogs, a worn brush, or a full bag, and the vacuum automatically shuts off when brush obstructions occur to protect the motor and belts from damage. The X also has an instant-use cleaning wand and suction hose, a lifetime belt warranty, tool-free brush roller removal, a 40-foot power cord, and three on-board attachments.
The X7 Premium model offers a choice between two modes of automatic brush agitation! The default setting is perfect for most flooring types, but by pressing the Brush-mode Button, greater resistance of the spinning brush roller against the floor is allowed before height adjustments are made, which causes more aggressive and deeper brush action. The X7 Premium and X8 models also have an LED headlight to help illuminate the cleaning path. However, the red X7 model does not have an LED headlight, and both the red X7 and X8 do not include a Brush-mode Button. Another model option, the X7 Premium PET, is only available in retail stores through our Medalist Dealers. The PET model is additionaly equipped with a hand-held turbo brush, a nine-foot extension hose, and a charcoal anti-odor microfilter that absorbs pet odors.
Three On-board, Full-size Tools. Large Filter Bag – The vacuum comes standard with a crevice nozzle, dusting brush, upholstery nozzle, and a large 1.4-gallon filter bag. Also, many optional accessories are available.
A Low, 6-inch Profile – Its low, flat-to-the-floor profile makes cleaning under furniture easy!
Soft-start Feature – The vacuum's gradual power-up capability extends motor life.
Forty-foot Cord – Its 40-foot cord saves time, by reducing the number of electrical outlet changes needed during use.
Automatic Height Adjustment: From Hard Floors to Carpets – The electronic controller adjusts the power head up or down to the appropriate brush height, providing optimal cleaning of both carpets and hard floors. The "sealing strip," located behind the brush roller, improves hard floor cleaning performance by channeling the airflow and preventing debris kickback.
Two Modes of Automatic Brush Agitation – Only the X7 Premium model offers a choice between two modes of automatic brush agitation! The default setting is perfect for most flooring types, but by pressing the Brush-mode Button, greater resistance of the spinning brush roller against the floor is allowed before height adjustments are made, which causes more aggressive and deeper brush action. This feature is not available on the red X7 or the X8.
Brush Adjustment Indicator Lights – Two green lights, one for "up" and one for "down," illuminate to indicate when the power head is in the process of adjusting brush height to the proper cleaning level. Optimal cleaning effectiveness occurs when both lights are off.
Stationary Use Light – When the vacuum is stationary in its upright, handle locked position, the power head adjusts upward to the height necessary (or to its highest possible level) to disengage the spinning brush roller from the floor. However, if the brush remains in contact with carpet fibers, despite the power head's upward adjustment, the red "check brush" warning light flashes to alert the user to avoid potential carpet marking from excessive use time in a stationary position. Usually, very high-pile carpets cause this situation, or the vacuum is tilted toward the brush roller while using the cleaning wand and/or hose. The solution is to tilt the upright and locked handle backward a few inches, so that the brush roller is raised above the carpet pile. Full Bag or Clog Light with Automatic Shut Off – When a full bag, a clog in the airflow pathway, or an excessively dirty microfilter is detected, the red "bag full or clog" warning light illuminates, the vacuum automatically shuts off after 30 seconds, and then the warning light starts continuously flashing. This feature prevents overheating and motor damage from a lack of adequate airflow. Three-step, Hospital-grade Filtration – It features an S-class or optional HEPA pre-motor microfilter, a three-layer Ultra Bag, and an electrostatic exhaust microfilter, all in a tightly sealed casing. This system provides long-lasting filtration with smooth airflow, excellent suction performance, and meets the special demands of users with allergies or asthma.
Brush Obstruction Light with Automatic Shut Off – If an obstruction jams the brush roller, the red "check brush" warning light flashes quickly, the brush roller immediately stops spinning, and the vacuum shuts off. This feature prevents the belts from breaking and protects the motor and carpet from damage.
Worn Brush Light. Easy Brush Roller Removal and Cleaning – When the brush roller's bristles are worn to a point that brush agitation is less effective, the red "check brush" warning light remains illuminated during use. (The vacuum continues to operate; it will not automatically shut off.) When needed, installing a new brush roller or cleaning hair or other debris from a used one is quick and easy, and no tools are required! Instant-use Wand and Suction Hose – The integrated instant-use wand and suction hose are always ready. Just pull out either tool, or both together, to clean hard-to-reach corners, edges and crevices. The wand and hose together have an eight-foot reach. The suction hose is ideal for cleaning furniture. And an optional nine-foot extension hose is available, which creates a total hose length of 15 feet . . . perfect for cleaning stairs. Choose from a range of optional attachments that can be fitted to the wand or hose!
LED Headlight – The AUTOMATIC X7 Premium and the X8 models are equipped with a headlight to illuminate the cleaning path in low-light conditions. However, the red X7 model does not have an LED headlight.
Foot Pedal Stress Release – The quick-release foot pedal maximizes durability, by relieving excessive stress or force on the handle and bag housing, when it's in the upright, locked position. Two Power Head Widths. One or Two-sided Edge Cleaning – All AUTOMATIC X7 models are 12 inches wide with a cleaning path of 10½ inches and one-sided edge cleaning. The AUTOMATIC X8 is 15 inches wide with a cleaning path of 14½ inches and two-sided edge cleaning. Combination Carrying Handle with Rotating Cord Hook – The AUTOMATIC X is easy to carry or quickly unwind the cord, using its unique handle with integrated rotating cord hook. Protective, Rubber-coated Wheels – Its wheels protect all floor surfaces and provide smooth maneuverability.Easy Maintenance – The clog removal door is easy to access, and its brush roller and "sealing strip" are easy to replace Lifetime Belt Warranty – Stop changing vacuum belts!
