Cons of Electrolux EL4300A Bagless Canister Vacuum:

  • Suction control is located on canister, not convenient when you want to change suction.

  • The dust bin is on the small side, could be bigger.
  • The power cord is somewhat short (21 feet), if you have large house, it’s kind of pain to change outlets.
  • There is no place to store all the tools on the canister, such as the bare floor tool.
  • It is not easy to wrap the hose compactly for storage.
  • No attachment for stair cleaning.
