Eureka is a brand name everybody can trust. Though they focus heavily on uprights and sticks, their selection of canister vacs is worth taking a look at. If you haven’t seen our review of the 3670G, make sure you do so after seeing what we have to say about its bigger brother, the also-budget-friendly 3670h. What it lacks in appeal, it makes up for in cleaning performance and versatility multiple times over.
Vacuum cleaners with larger motors are better equipped to vacuum a wider range of floor surface types. The 3670h features a 12-amp motor that delivers up to 19 kPa of suction at any given time, making it the marginally better canister vac for homes with large carpeted areas and stairs compared to its yellow-coated brother model.
In a general sense, the 3670h’s cleaning performance is at par with most of what you’d find on the market. It requires making a couple of passes to remove debris from medium-pile carpets so it definitely works as expected. For one reason or another, pulling the floorhead cleans a lot better than pushing.
10-inch Turbo Nozzle
The 3670h comes with a turbo nozzle that works on both bare and carpeted floors. This vacuum head does not have an active spinning brush so the bristles will not leave scratch marks on floorboards and vinyl tiles, but this is also why it takes several passes to remove debris from carpeted surfaces. On a brighter note, the nozzle will not fling dust and debris around.
This floorhead measures ten across from left to right with tiny bezels to enhance edge-cleaning abilities. Admittedly, it’s a bit narrower than we would have liked, at least for everyday cleaning, but it does have one advantage: it can move around furniture effortlessly without needing to temporarily relocate furniture for easier access.
Like the 3760G, this blue canister vac weighs a sliver under nine pounds. The convenient carry handle located on top makes transporting the unit up and down stairs pretty easy. Needless to say, it shouldn’t strain your back and shoulder muscles while carrying it, but there’s actually very little lifting involved since oversized rear wheels make it glide easily across carpets and bare floors.
Cleaning Tools and Accessories
Like every other canister vac out there, the 3670h comes with several cleaning tools for spot-cleaning tasks. There’s nothing too jaw-dropping about its narrow selection of tools—you get a crevice tool and a standard dusting brush for cleaning upholstery and carpeted steps. The good thing is that both of these tools fit easily inside of the unit’s storage compartment.
The 3670h also comes with two extension wands to help you reach ceiling cobwebs and dirt on drapes. Though they do extend your reach by several feet, they have a very cheap plastic-y feel to them, and we found them to bend easily with just a bit of pressure. You’ll have to keep these wands out of harm’s way when in storage.
2.5-liter Dust Bag
For some reason, Eureka has decided not to make the 3670h bagless canister vac but a bagged one just like the 3760G. It also uses the exact same 2.5-liter, easy-seal, disposable dust bags. Replacement bags are fairly cheap and easily found online, but we would have loved if it came with a washable dust cup instead.
20-foot Power Cord
The 3670h draws power from a wall outlet through its 20-foot power cord. By canister vacuum standards, 20 feet is far too short and will require frequent unplugging and plugging to finish vacuuming spacious rooms and floors. Just do what we did: plug the 3670h into an extension cord so there are fewer interruptions while vacuuming. To power cord wraps around two hooks on the 3670h’s belly for save storage.
There’s one feature that most people might not even realize they need: a blower port. On the opposite end of the suction hose is the blower port where, when switched to blow mode, delivers copious amounts of air to move dirt, dust, and large-sized debris. For those of you who have garage workshops or don’t have a leaf blower, this handy feature can be a time saver.
Verdict: Should I Get the Eureka 3670h Mighty Mite Canister Vacuum?
After looking at what the 3670h is capable of, we found that the quality of this canister vac really does reflect its affordable price tag. That said, it’s not a bad canister vacuum by any means, but its extension wands could have been sturdier. In terms of cleaning performance, it’s totally reliable but far from amazing.
