CHICAGO, March 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Panasonic today announced the new JetForce MC-CL930 series of canister vacuum cleaners. Featuring a compact, lightweight design, the Panasonic MC-CL930 series uses the company's JetForce technology which uses a unique hourglass-shaped dust container to capture dirt with no loss of suction. The MC-CL930 vacuum cleaner series is currently on display at the International Home + Housewares Show, which starts today and runs through March 5 at McCormick Place in Chicago. Show attendees can visit the Panasonic booth #L12505 Lakeside to see the company's complete line of vacuum cleaners and home appliance products.
"Panasonic's new JetForce MC-CL930 series was designed to meet the growing consumer demand for a smaller vacuum model that does not sacrifice on cleaning power," said David Williams, Group Marketing Manager, Home Appliances, Panasonic Consumer Marketing Company of North America. "We have fused the small canister base with our JetForce technology to create a compact vacuum, at just 16.5-inches in body length, which packs a powerful punch against dust, dirt and pet hair."
The Panasonic MC-CL930 canister vacuum series is equipped with a unique dust-compression cup design that forces larger dirt particles toward the bottom of the cup, keeping it away from the filter so there will be no loss of suction. This is particularly effective with pet hair. The vacuum's 9-stage cyclonic technology offers long-lasting power and utilizes nine cylinders for multicyclonic dirt separation resulting in cleaner exhaust air. One main cylinder for large particle separation and eight smaller cylinders for finer dust separation creates an incredibly powerful system that helps maintain high performance.
The MC-CL935 is equipped with a motorized Powermate Nozzle which uses a dedicated agitator motor to deliver powerful, deep cleaning action and also features a quick release, automatic height adjustment and headlight. The MC-CL933 model is equipped with an air turbine nozzle. Both models offer on-board tools including a dusting brush and crevice tool. The Pet Turbine Brush, available on the MC-CL935, quickly and easily removes embedded pet hair from furniture and linens. A telescopic wand makes it easy to clean a home from floor to ceiling, offering users an extended access for hard-to-reach areas. Both models in the MC-CL930 canister vacuum series use a HEPA Media Exhaust Filter, which captures small particles such as allergens, irritants, and pollutants and have a washable cup filter for easy cleaning.
The series' sleek design is accentuated with the bold violet and black (MC-CL935) and modern white and green (MC-CL933) colorblock designs. The canister base uses a short wheel base and large rear wheels to allow for tighter turns, making it easier to move around furniture. Designed for quiet operation, the MC-CL930 series' canister features a long air path and strategic air exhaust vent location to reduce operation noise.
The Panasonic MC-CL930 Series will be available in fall of 2013. Pricing and availability will be announced approximately 30 days prior to shipping.
