The R17 ultra-lightweight vacuum has nearly the same features as the SupraLite Premium but with a few extra benefits. Designed for today’s carpet styles and busy families, the R17 has the soft carpet baseplate, making it easy to vacuum ultra-plush carpeting without bogging down and being hard to push. In addition to a seven-year warranty, this machine is eliglble for 17 service visits to your participating local Riccar retailer. Bring in your vacuum, and have the belt and other critical features checked to make sure your R17 cleans reliably for many years.
This model features a Hall sensor with lifetime belt, which virtually eliminates down time due to broken belts. It’s light enough to carry up and down stairs and has a 40-foot power cord to clean room after room without stopping. Equipped with a self-sealing HEPA media bag to trap dust and dirt, it also has rubber wheels and non-marking bumper, a two-speed motor and a metal brushroll with replaceable brushstrips that can be customized for delicate floor types or rugs. Because most homes have at least some bare floors, the R17 has a rubber squeegee that gently corrals dust and debris for easy removal.
