Panasonic Debuts JetForce Vacuum

PanasonicSECAUCUS, N.J.-Panasonic has launched the JetForce vacuum cleaner, which features a lightweight design and what the company called "powerful performance."

The new vacuum is equipped with Pet and Reach tool kits. The Telescopic Crevice tool can expand from 14 to 29 inches for out-of-reach areas such as between the refrigerator and the cabinets, or on high ceilings and cabinets. The Fan/Blind tool fits onto the Telescopic Crevice tool, and is designed with a three-way pivoting head to remove dust and dirt from ceiling fan blades, window blinds and more.

The Pet Glide tool features double rollers and silicone teeth to provide agitation and vibration to lift pet hair and dust from surfaces without sucking in fabric and damaging material. The JetForce's hour-glass shape forces large debris toward the bottom of the cup, keeping it away the filter.

The new vac will be available for $149.99 exclusively at Walmart beginning Oct. 1, according to a Panasonic statement.
