Eureka NES510 Flash Features and Specifications
When Eureka NES510 Flash arrives, it must be assembled, which can be done easily.
Assembled Eureka NES510 Flash features physical dimensions of 11.1 x 7.9 x 45 inches (~28.2 x 20 x 114.3 cm) and it weighs just 7.4 pounds (~3.35 kg).
The unit is powered by a 500-watt motor which creates good suction across 11 inches (~28 cm) wide cleaning path - maximum suction is ~15kPa, which is more than enough for thorough cleaning. The power cord is 30 feet (~9.15 m) long, providing the user with a long cleaning range using just a wall power socket.
Eureka NES510 Flash doesn't feature automatic power cord rewind system - power cord is manually wrapped around cord wrap hooks by the user.
When the unit arrives, the box contains a hand vacuum, 2-in-1 upholstery tool, crevice tool, motorized floor nozzle, storage base, cleaning wand, and of course, the manual (Owner's Guide).
Note: Although Eureka NES510 Flash is very simple to use and maintain corded vacuum cleaner, when it arrives, read the manual thoroughly in order to get accustomed to your new vacuum cleaner.
Eureka NES510 Flash is a lightweight unit, designed for cleaning both bare floors and carpeted areas.
The main cleaner head features a motorized brushroll and translucent brushroll cover.
As the brushroll spins, it helps clean carpets and area rugs by pulling out deeply embedded dirt including pet hair, human hair, lint, fibers, and similar.
To help users clean different floor types, Eureka NES510 Flash features a simple floor mode selector, integrated with a power switch.
When the power switch is in Off position, the unit is turned Off.
When the power switch is moved to the first 'active' position, the suction motor starts and creates suction, but the brushroll doesn't spin - this setting is intended for vacuuming bare floors.
When the power switch is moved to the second 'active' position, the brushroll is engaged and the unit is able to vacuum carpets and area rugs thoroughly.
A motorized brushroll does a very good job, but it doesn't feature any automatic tangled hair cleaning system - it is up to the user to periodically remove any tangled hair from the brushroll.
Motorized floor nozzle also features a very low profile and swivel neck, helping the user clean more thoroughly under and around floor objects like sofas, furniture, and similar.
To help the user clean in low-light conditions and to help spot the dirt more easily, the floor nozzle also features a set of LED headlights.
When the unit is not in use, it can be stored on the portable storage base, requiring very little storage space.
Additional cleaning tools include the Crevice cleaning tool and the 2-in-1 upholstery tool.
The crevice cleaning tool is a long and narrow cleaning tool, intended for cleaning crevices (hence the name), gaps, edges, corners, and other hard-to-reach and clean surfaces.
2-in-1 upholstery tool is designed for cleaning upholstery and as a dusting brush, for dusting sensitive surfaces.
Thanks to the convertible design and motorized floor nozzle, crevice tool and 2-in-1 upholstery tool, Eureka NES510 Flash is able to clean a multitude of surfaces from the floor to the ceiling - all three cleaning tools can be used regardless if the unit is in stick vacuum or handheld vacuum mode.
Dust cup is translucent, allowing the user to check the type and amount of vacuumed dirt. Dust cup capacity is respectable 1 liter, allowing the user to clean even heavily soiled areas without interruptions.
Dust cup is easily detached from the unit and emptied directly into the trashcan.
Air filtration is good, but the manufacturer doesn't state the actual HEPA level.
Air filtration is based on two washable pre-motor filters (Inlet filter, part number N0205, and Woven filter, part number N0206) and post-motor exhaust air filter (part number N0207).
After washing, air filters must be thoroughly air-dried first (for 24 hours, for example) and should never be assembled in the unit while they are still wet.
Since these filters are relatively cheap, it is good practice to have a set of filters in the unit and another set of air filters being washed and dried and ready for the next use.
Long Story Short: Eureka NES510 Flash is simple to use and maintain, but also affordable convertible stick/handheld vacuum cleaner.
It doesn't feature freedom and range like cordless units, but it comes with a long power cord (30 feet) and can operate as long as there is a mains power available.
Thanks to its cleaning tools, it can be used for cleaning of both floors and elevated surfaces.
