SEBO ESSENTIAL G4 Upright Vacuum


The sturdy, commercial-grade ESSENTIAL G-series is a technically advanced, upright vacuum cleaner that will provide years of reliable use!

The SEBO ESSENTIAL G4 upright vacuum is 12 inches wide with a 10.5-inch cleaning path and has one-sided edge cleaning to reach dirt and pet hair up against the baseboards. Designed to clean both carpets and hard floors, this vacuum is superb for deep cleaning and pet hair removal. It features an electronic controller that acts as a brain alerting the user to a worn brush, or when the brush height is set too high for optimal cleaning. It even shuts off automatically when there is a full bag, a clog, or if a brush-roller obstruction occurs, which protects the motor, belts, and carpet from damage.

Made in Germany, SEBO vacuum cleaners are constructed from the highest quality materials. Every SEBO vacuum cleaner is fully tested before it leaves the factory so that you can be confident that in buying a SEBO, you are buying the best.

Instant-use Wand and Suction Hose

The integrated, instant-use wand and suction hose are always ready. Just pull out either tool to clean hard-to-reach corners, edges, and crevices. The wand and hose together have an eight-foot reach. The suction hose is ideal for cleaning furniture. There is an optional nine-foot extension hose available which creates a total hose length of 15 feet, perfect for cleaning stairs.

Low, 5.5-inch Profile

Lower the handle flat to the floor to clean under beds or lower it to the intermediate stop position to maneuver over rugs. Depress the foot pedal again to bypass the intermediate stop position, or close this position by moving the orange, handle-position slider to the right.

Long, 40-foot Cord and 48-foot Operating Range

Its cleaning radius saves time because it can clean large areas without changing electrical outlets. Plus, the eight-foot suction hose provides superb user maneuverability.

Combination Carrying Handle with Rotating Cord Hook

The vacuum is easy to carry or quickly unwind the cord, using its unique handle with integrated, rotating cord hook.

Three On-board, Full-size Tools

The G machine includes a crevice tool, a dusting brush, and an upholstery nozzle. Also, many optional accessories are available.

Two Powerhead Widths with One-Sided Edge Cleaning

The ESSENTIAL G4 is 12 inches wide with a cleaning path of 10½ inches. The ESSENTIAL G5 is 14 inches wide with a cleaning path of 12½ inches. Both heads have one-sided edge cleaning.

Protective, Rubber-coated Wheels

Its wheels protect all floor surfaces and provide smooth maneuverability.

Large-capacity Filter Bag

The 5.3 litre ultra filter bag is convenient and economical because fewer bag changes are needed and closing its built-in hygiene cap prevents dust from escaping during bag removal or disposal.

Four-level, Manual Brush Height Adjustment

The brush height can be manually adjusted up or down for optimal cleaning effectiveness.

Brush Obstruction Light with Automatic Shut Off

If an obstruction jams the brush roller, the red “check brush” warning light flashes quickly, the brush roller immediately stops spinning, and the vacuum shuts off. This feature prevents the belts from breaking and protects the motor and carpet from damage.

Incorrect Height Setting or Worn Brush Light

When the brush height is set too high for optimal cleaning or when the brush roller should be replaced due to bristle wear, the red “check brush” warning light illuminates during use and the vacuum will not automatically shut off. The light shuts off when the condition is corrected, ensuring consistently effective brush agitation of the carpet pile.

Full Bag or Clog Light with Automatic Shut Off

When a full bag, a clog in the airflow pathway, or an excessively dirty microfilter is detected, the red “bag full or clog” warning light illuminates, the machine automatically shuts off after 60 seconds, and then the warning light starts continuously flashing. This feature prevents overheating and motor damage from a lack of adequate airflow.

Easy Brush Removal and Cleaning

Cleaning hair or other debris from the brush roller, or replacing it when its bristles are worn, is quick and easy, and no tools are required! This feature ensures consistently effective brush agitation of the carpet pile.

Three-step, Hospital-grade Filtration

It features an S-class, pre-motor microfilter, a three-layer 5.5 litre Ultra Bag, an exhaust filter, and a tightly sealed casing, which prevents dirty air from escaping through its seams. This system provides long-lasting filtration with smooth airflow, excellent suction performance, and meets the demands of users with allergies or asthma.

Durable, Heavy-duty Belts

The reinforced, geared belts do not slip or stretch, resulting in a more efficient use of power, and they should last the life of the machine.

Durable Matte Finish

The ESSENTIAL G4 upright vacuum has an exterior housing with a special matte finish that is extra scratch and scuff-re­sistant, so it looks great even after years of use.

Soft-start Feature

The vacuum’s gradual power-up capability extends motor life.
