    Overall Review

    Riccar 8955 upright vacuum cleaner is accompanied with Manual Reset Thermal Fuse Protector. The basic function of this protector is that of preventing the cleaner from getting overheated owing to restriction with respect to air flow.

    If anything of this sort occurs, vacuum cleaner would be shut off at the next instant by ‘thermal fuse protector’; so that potential damage can be avoided. Riccars 8955 is specially being designed for removing ‘microscopic dust dirt pollen bacteria’ and pollution which none of the other vacuums touch.

    Filter system goes on to capture pollutants. At the same time, it doesn’t exhaust them (back) in to the room. Exhaust filter provided with these vacuums features and ‘advanced material filterate’ by 3M that captures around 99.97% of contaminants; thereby having made them an ideal choice for those prone to allergy.

    The finest part about the aforementioned vacuum cleaner is that the user need not be tech-savvy to operate it. All he/she has to do is to go through instruction manual thoroughly.
