Ovente ST2000 versus Ovente ST2620B: Canister Vacuums
Some people shy away from canister vacuums because they’re often bulky, which means they take up a lot of storage space. A lot of bending over tends to be involved with the uses of a canister vac too. However, Ovente makes several compact models that won’t hurt your back, like the ST2000 and the ST2620B.
Price perfectly for those who have to watch every penny, the ST2000 and the ST2620B are lightweight yet durable. The buttons on these canister vacuums are either located above waist level or operated by foot. Each vacuum comes with attachments for detailed cleaning and conveniences such as a retractable power cord, a swiveling hose, and variable-speed suction. Plus, you get the benefit of a reusable HEPA filter.
Interested in owning an Ovente canister vac? We’ve compared the features on the ST200 and the ST2620B to help you decide which model is best for your house.
Compact and Lightweight
Weighing 12.9 pounds and resting on a pair of oversized, smooth wheels, maneuvering the Ovente ST2000 around the house is a breeze. Its telescopic wand is made of stainless steel, lending the wand durability, and the canister vac has a holder that lets the wand stand without falling. With dimensions of 11.5 by 15 inches, the vacuum won’t take up a lot of space wherever you put it.
The Ovente ST2620B is also lightweight, coming in at 13.2 pounds, and it’s equipped with two large, non-marking wheels. With a width and depth of 13.4 by 15.7 inches, you’ll still have room in your storage closet for other cleaning supplies. Plus, the canister has a pole holder that prevents the stainless-steel wand from toppling.
Conclusion: Both the ST2000 and the ST2620B are lightweight and small, with the ST200 being slightly smaller and lighter. We like that the pole is constructed from stainless steel and that Ovente was thoughtful enough to add a clip that lets the pole stand upright.
On the higher end of the pole, there is a thumb slider that lets you adjust the suction to the task at hand. The 10-inch-wide floor head has a foot pedal that lowers and raises the brush roll for vacuuming carpets and hard floors, respectively. There are also foot pedals on the canister that control the power and retract the 15-foot cord.
No more bending your back to change a setting. One foot pedal rewinds the 15-foot-long power cord while the other pedal turns on the suction. The vacuum also has a foot pedal on its floor head that adjusts the height of the floor brush, so you don’t scratch your hardwoods or tile. There is even a fingertip slider that reduces the suction when you need to vacuum your drapes or area rugs.
Conclusion: Foot pedals and fingertip controls control all the settings, so you’ll never wrench your back. The Ovente ST2620B has a wider floor head; however, it’s only wider by 1 inch. Each vacuum also has a lengthy power cord that retracts, adjustable airflow and a brush raiser.
Switching attachments while vacuuming can be annoying. Ovente solves this problem with its combo tool. The combo attachment is part bristle brush, part crevice wand. When you want to change from the crevice tool to the brush, just flip down the brush. The ST2000 also boasts a heavy-duty 5-foot-long hose that swivels a full 360 degrees.
With the Ovente ST2620B, you get three attachments that slide on the end of the 5-foot rotating hose. There is a motorized brush that’s great for vacuuming stairs and lifting pet hair off furniture and a dual brush-crevice tool. The translucent multi-angle brush bends, so you can reach cabinet tops and baseboards.
Conclusion: Both come with a handy two-purpose tool that vacuums hard surfaces and in crevices. However, the ST2620B offers two additional attachments – the motorized brush and the multi-angle brush. With these extra tools, you can clean almost every corner and spot in your house with one vacuum.
A Reusable HEPA Filter
With a HEPA filter and an exhaust filter that you can wash, you’ll save a ton of money in the long-run on filter replacements. The HEPA media along with the vacuum’s 1,200 watts of cyclonic suction will prevent allergens from becoming airborne. The D-shaped handle on the dust cup makes it easy to empty the cup’s contents.
With its 1,400-watt motor and cyclonic suction, heavy debris and fine dust don’t stand a chance. Inside of the canister vac, there is a HEPA filter and an exhaust filter, both of which are washable and reusable. You’ll know right away when it’s time to empty the cup because it’s made of clear plastic.
Conclusion: Ovente pulled out all the stops with these vacuums’ filtration system. While the ST2620B’s motor has a higher wattage, both produce cyclonic suction and contain a reusable HEPA and a washable exhaust filter. The canister vacs’ dust cups are see-through, and they have a looped handle.
Powerful and Long-Lasting Canister Vacuums
If you want a canister vacuum that will last for years or will help keep your allergies at bay, you’ll be happy with either the ST2000 or the ST2620B. The swivel hose won’t crack if you accidentally step on it, and the pole is designed to resist dents and rust. Since the cord doesn’t wind around hooks, it’s less likely to become worn.
An onboard holder keeps the pole safe, and a dual-function tool means one less attachment to store. There are foot pedals for almost every controllable feature except the suction reducer, which is still convenient since it’s a fingertip switch. The height-adjustable brush lets you use the canister vacuums on hard floors and carpets. You can reuse the HEPA filter and the exhaust filter, which is rare.
If you want the lightest, smallest canister vacuum, the Ovente ST2000 is your best bet. If you have a large home, own pets or do a lot of detailed cleaning, go with the Ovente ST2620B. Whichever model you choose, you’ll be pleased with its smooth handling and strong suction.
