Eureka Mighty Mite Pet Lover 3684F

The Eureka 3684F Mighty Mite Pet Lover may be one of the most sought after of canister vacuum cleaners in the market. Priced less than $100, the budget canister vacuum has received strong reviews for its cleaning performance. Now let us have a look at some of the features of the compact canister that make it a great choice for many people.

The pet canister may not be in the same league as a $1000 models. That said, for its asking price, the vacuum cleaner still provides a number of that appeal to homeowners. It is a step up from the Eureka Mighty Mite 3670G. For only about a $10-15 difference in total price, the 3684F comes with HEPA filtration to capture 99.97 percent of dust and pet dander.

The 3684F Pet Lover can use Arm & Hammer odor-eliminating dust bag. As the name implies, the bag is designed to eliminate pet odors and capture allergy-causing pet dander. Two bags and one set of filters are included in the package. Replacement bags and filters are easy to buy at amazon. More than that, the bags are cheap enough. Many reviewers have commented that it holds a lot of debris for its size.

When it comes to accessories, there is dusting brush, crevice tool, hose, and telescoping rod. The vacuum is also shipped with a floor head and a pet-fur rotating brush head. Compared to the regular model, the Mighty Mite 3670G, it offers a wider cleaning path (11″ vs 10″). You will find that there are some negative reviews about the effectiveness of the special pet attachment. However, for the majority of the reviewers, the air-driven attachment works as expected.

Another feature that you may find useful on this cleaner is the blower port that you can use to blow away leaves, sawdust or other large debris. The port is located on the back side of the canister. The 3684F is powered by a 12 amp motor. When you use the blower, it reverses the airflow. Designed with safety in mind there is automatic shut-off feature to protect the motor from overheating.

The Eureka Mighty Mite Pet Lover is not perfect. If you want true HEPA performance for your home, for instance, this may not be the right product for you. Some reviewers have also reported that the hose is a bit flimsy. When it comes to construction, practically everything is plastic. This also applies for the hose and the wheels at the back of the canister. You have to be careful not to kink the hose. However, the lightweight design makes it easy to carry around the house. Others have found that the vacuum machine is a little loud.

Despite those noted shortcomings, it has received a lot of positive feedback from its customers at Amazon.com. The canister vacuum cleaner is currently rated 4.0/5 stars. Ideal for quick cleaning, the Eureka Mighty Mite 3684F weighs only 8.6 lbs. In temrs of area coverage, it is equipped with a 20-foot long power cord.

In terms of performance, many people have been impressed with the capabilities of this little machine. Without a motor-driven brush roll, it is not ideal for homes with carpeting. That said, customer feedback suggests that suction is really good on wood floors and rugs. It really picks up dirt and pet hair. There is a suction control that lets you add or reduce the suction for different floors. Many reviewers have also been pleased with the pet hair attachment. According to them, it does a great job picking up dog and cat hairs.

All in all, the Eureka Mighty Mite Pet Lover 3684F will not fit everyone’s needs. However, if all you need is a simple, lightweight canister vacuum cleaner that has some good suction power, then it is worth considering. Coming with a pet hair attachment, it can be a great accompaniment to your upright vacuum cleaner which is dedicated for deep-cleaning your carpets.
