I don't see much talk about the sebo k3 canister on here.
It's a wonderful compact canister that was supposed to be have been retired by now.
Sebo keeps producing it as a "budget option" . It's so quirky and fun I figured it would be up every collectors alley.

These are really nice canisters, I consider these as upgrades over the C3.1 models.

I'm getting into cannisters as I have had electrolux oxygen 3, riccar 1500p, Patriot and compacts.
This is a vacuum is buy. I don't think I'd be a fan of the power nozzle he showed. I'd need a more aggressive brush roll. The filters and bags are easy to access.
Nice thanks for the video.

Have the Sebo K canister in red like what is shown.Mine was sold as a special deal from the vac shop in Greenville who is a Meile and Sebo dealer.The K vacuums didn't sell here-bought their sample machine-without the hose hence the good deal.A hose from another Sebo machine works fine.also didn't have the wand and floor tools.Don't really like the combo furniture tool and crevice tool-chokes the airflow from this powerful small canister.This machine was intended for someone who has an upright for carpets and needs a basic suction only machine for above floor cleaning or bare floors.

Brushrolls for Sebo canister powernozzles-go to a Sebo dealer and he can show you the brush options for Sebo powerheads-and replacing them just takes moments!!!Just twist off the end cap on the nozzle-twist off the brushroll and twist in another one.Then put the cap back on-you are ready to go again!This is also used on Sebo uprights.

I like the idea of the K3. In fact, I almost bought one instead of the X7.

The only thing which I dont like about it is the suspect exhaust filter. It seems to be either a) not very well sealed, and/or b) not very effective. I see vacuums (below) which have staining from the carbon brush emissions on the air belt. Do you see this on vacs which come into your store? What are your thoughts?

K series and E series

The E series is the newest Sebo series of canisters and some have thought that it will eventually replace the K series. The D4 is Sebo's full size canister, I think it's a bit larger than the K series or E series. Sebo vacuums are awesome, I consider Sebo to be my favorite portable vacuum brand that is currently made.

@broomvac I really don't have any problem with the filtration of the K series.

But it definitely is no Nilfisk on terms of filtration.
I usually see that are built pretty beat up but I can't say I see carbon dust on the air belt. They hardly come in for service so I'm basing this on much lower numbers than I normally would have for a sample size.

In my opinion Sebo ET-1 powerhead has quite stiff bristles in the brushroll with good agitation.
Of course there is powerheads with stiffer bristle brushrolls, but they tend to eat a lot of carpet fibers.
But this is just my opinion.

Thanks for the info. It would make sense high quality vacuum power nozzle wouldn't be it's downfall. I have compact c9 compact xl power nozzle. I have used rainbow platinum meh, and wessell werk 360 I use on rainbow and xl. I have a Patriot with I'm pretty sure a weasel werk power nozzle. The Patriot if you get rugs tangled you have to turn off vacuum and reset. I also had a riccar 1500 p.
Wessell werk is my choice.
Wood floors bedrooms carpet and a 100 lb golden lab indoor pet who is potty trained.
The wessell werk I use every where dog hair is.
This vacuum is a little high on price but it seems much better than any canister I've used. I wouldn't compare compact or TriStar xl to this.
This just looks like a really great vacuum. If I can get vacuums sold I may pick me up one. Thanks for info nice to learn about vacs I'm not knowledge about.
