I would normally recommend a 2-in-1 cordless vacuum for a quick pickup but when I saw the Monster H055.
This vacuum cleaner impressed me so much that I would recommend it to anyone looking for an affordable 2-in-1 vacuum cleaner.
It comes with a 15-foot cord, so you’ll have to find an outlet to plug it in.
What sets this product apart is that it can be used as a handheld device and a stick vacuum which eliminates the need to purchase two separate products saving you quite a bit.
Although it doesn’t have a motorized brush, consumers said it has enough suction power to clean carpets.
But I wouldn’t recommend this for homes with wall-to-wall carpets.
Tall people (more than 6 feet) may want to avoid this because it’s rather short.
- Powerful 500W motor
- very good suction
- The bagless and washable filter reduces operating cost
- 2-in-1 Versatility – Can be used as a wand or a hand vacuum
- Great on stairs
- There is no automatic brush roll that limits its efficiency on carpets
- 15ft short hose
- small dirt cup
- There is no rotating action
- Difficult to adjust floor tool
- The attachments rely only on friction to hold them in place unlike higher brands like Dyson that have a locking mechanism
What do you expect from Euroflex Monster H055?
The biggest reason to buy the Monster H055 is the versatility it offers you at a very affordable price.
The six tools included in the package can be mixed and matched to clean upholstery, floors, stairs, and even tight spaces.
The suction is above average due to the 500W motor which is almost unheard of for a vacuum cleaner of this size.
Here is the full list of features:
- Weighs only 3.8 pounds
- Comes with 5 accessories – floor tool, crevice tool, bushing/upholstery tool kit, 2 extension tubes and a carrying case
- Interchangeable attachments make this cleaner great everywhere
- 15 feet power cord
- 500W motor
- Made in italy
bare floor performance
This will work best on an exposed floor due to the strong suction.
You’ll have no problem picking up dust, hair, pet dander, cheerio and all kinds of debris that you usually wind around the house.
Consumers were very pleased with how it performed on this deck saying it picked up tons of dirt.
You will notice that the floor tool did not pick up the pet liter along the grooves, you will need to use a crevice tool for this.
I would like to clarify that this does not have any motorized brush roll so for deep pile carpet cleaning this will be limited but will still be able to clean a thinner pile of carpets and rugs.
Pet hair removal
This 2-in-1 should be able to remove pet hair from hard floors, low-pile rugs, rugs, and upholstery.
Not having a motorized brush hurt her a bit as she wouldn’t be able to remove pet hair from the plush carpet but apart from that she shouldn’t have any problem.
Attachments and accessories
It comes with a crevice tool, an upholstery brush/tool set, a floor tool and two pairs of 13-1/2″ extension tubes.
These tools are interchangeable making this vacuum so versatile – you can either use one extension tube if you want to clean a drawer or two if you want to use this as a vacuum cleaner.
Extension tubes can also be removed and you can attach the tool directly to the broom as needed.
It is about 15 feet long and has no wire to rewind or any wrap where you can neatly store it. For this you will need to wind the wire by hand and use a wire or rubber band to keep it tidy.
Removing the dust cup is very easy, simply press the lever on the top to remove and then pull out the filter holder to empty the dust cap.
You’ll have to use your fingers to remove some of the statically charged dirt like lint that might stick to the filter cloth and press it against a hard object to get other debris out that might be stuck there, so it can be quite a mess.
Euroflex gives this vacuum only one year warranty.

The consensus is that this vacuum had strong suction power and was very clever.
Consumers say it was able to clean their floors well, both carpet and floor.
Versatility is also another big plus point because it has allowed people to clean stairs and furnishings as well as tight spaces around their homes.
Remember that stairs and upholstery are difficult to clean because most vacuums are not equipped to clean these two areas efficiently.
Although consumers say that this can clean carpets, this does not mean that you should buy this if your home has wall-to-wall carpets as it does not have a motorized brush which is a must when cleaning carpets.
In fact, some complained that this didn’t clean carpet floors well enough, so I guess their homes have plush carpets.
Another concern for one consumer is the tendency for heavy pieces of debris such as small rocks to retract from the vacuum when it is turned off.
Remember though that this cannot be considered a shop vacuum.
If you want a heavy-duty vacuum cleaner, I recommend the Makita BCL180W which can pick up small marble bits of heavy debris without any difficulty.
The final concern based on the reviews is the tendency for the engine to overheat quickly which is a common problem for smaller vacuums, so it would be better to use this in short bursts rather than for a long period of time which can burn the engine out.
This is why I recommend this broom as a spot cleaner.
Where can I buy this?
You can buy this on Amazon but it is not currently available.
If you buy this directly from Euroflex, it will cost you $90.
This vacuum would be great for small homes or apartments with mostly hard surfaces because although it has a powerful powerful motor, it tends to heat up very quickly according to one review, so this is best used in short bursts.
The short 15-foot power cord will also limit this to small areas without unplugging.
The suction is very good and will pick up all kinds of dirt and grime from exposed floor surfaces.
This will struggle on medium to thick carpets because it does not have any motorized brush necessary to clean velvet carpets.
If you want a good 2-in-1 vacuum cleaner but don’t want to spend more than $100 on a good cordless vacuum cleaner, this should be a great budget alternative because uptime shouldn’t be an issue but you need to know where the power outlets are.
