SEBO Automatic X Brochure
Learn All About the Automatic X Vacuum Cleaner

The AUTOMATIC X is the most technically advanced vacuum cleaner in the world! It features an electronic controller that acts as a brain, measuring the resistance of the brush roller against the floor and signaling the power head to adjust up or down to the appropriate brush height, to ensure optimum performance on both carpet and hard-floor surfaces. The controller also regulates a warning system that not only alerts the user to problems such as clogs, a worn brush, a full bag and brush roller obstructions, but it also automatically shuts off the vacuum, when necessary, to protect the motor and belts from damage. In addition, the Automatic X has a convenient instant-use cleaning wand and suction hose, and it comes with a lifetime belt warranty.

Instant-use Wand and Suction Hose
The integrated instant-use wand and suction hose are always ready. Just pull out either tool, or both together, 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. And an optional nine foot extension hose is available, which creates a total hose length of 15 feet...perfect for cleaning stairs. Choose from a range of optional attachments that can be fitted to the wand or hose.

A low 5½-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.

Automatic Height Adjustment:
From Hard Floors to Carpets
The electronic controller adjusts the power head up or down to the appropriate brush height, providing optimal cleaning of both carpets and hard floors. The “sealing strip,” located behind the brush, improves hard floor cleaning performance by channeling the airflow and preventing debris kickback.

Brush Adjustment Indicator Lights
Two green lights, one for “up” and one for “down,” illuminate to indicate when the power head is in the process of adjusting brush height to the proper cleaning level. Optimal cleaning effectiveness occurs when both lights are off.

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.

Worn Brush Light. Easy Brush
Removal and Cleaning
When the brush roller’s bristles are worn to a point that brush agitation is less effective, the red “check brush” warning light remains illuminated during use. (The vacuum continues to operate; it will not automatically shut off.) When needed, installing a new brush roller or cleaning hair or other debris from a used brush is quick and easy, and no tools are required!

Stationary Use Light
When the vacuum is stationary in its upright handle-locked position, the power head adjusts upward to the height necessary (or to its highest possible level) to disengage the spinning brush roller from the floor. However, if the brush remains in contact with carpet fibers, despite the power head’s upward adjustment, the red “check brush” warning light flashes to alert the user to avoid potential carpet marking from excessive use time in a stationary position. Usually, very high-pile carpets cause this situation, or the vacuum is tilted toward the brush roller while using the cleaning wand and/or hose. The solution is to tilt the locked upright handle backward such that the brush is raised above the carpet pile.

Bag Full or Clog Light with Automatic Shut Off
When a full bag, a clog in the airflow pathway, or an excessively dirty micro-filter is detected, the red “bag full or clog” warning light illuminates, the vacuum automatically shuts off after 30 seconds, and then the warning light starts continuously flashing. This feature prevents overheating and motor damage from a lack of adequate airflow.

Combination Carrying Handle with Rotating Cord Hook
The AUTOMATIC X is easy to carry, or quickly unwind the cord, using its unique handle with integrated rotating cord hook.
Three Onboard Full-size Tools.
Large Filter Bag
The vacuum comes standard with a crevice tool, dusting brush, upholstery nozzle, and a large 1.4gallon filter bag. Also, many optional accessories are available.

Lifetime Belt Warranty
Stop changing vacuum belts! With an AUTOMATIC X, they should last the life of the machine!

Forty-foot Cord
A 40foot cord saves time, by reducing the number of electrical outlet changes needed during use.

Two Power Head Widths. One or Two-sided Edge Cleaning
The AUTOMATIC X4 is 12 inches wide with a cleaning path of 10 1⁄2 inches and one-sided edge cleaning. The AUTOMATIC X5 is 15 inches wide with a cleaning path of 14 1⁄2 inches and two-sided edge cleaning.

Easy Maintenance
The clog removal door, brush, and replaceable hard floor “sealing strip” are easy to access.

The Standard Features of All Sebo Upright and Canister Vacuums

Designed and Manufactured in Germany
Legendary quality, reliability and performance make SEBO vacuums the choice of cleaning professionals and household users throughout the world.

Save Money! Sebo's Last for Years and Extend Carpet Life!
If properly maintained, SEBO vacuums save ordinary residential users hundreds of dollars by providing excellent performance for ten to fifteen years or more, and their deep cleaning power brush technology extends the life of carpets. Typical vacuums perform poorly, even when new, and usually do not last beyond two years. So six or seven “disposable vacuums” must be purchased during the average life expectancy of just one SEBO machine.

Five-year Warranty Coverage
All SEBO models include a five-year warranty on the motor and all non-wear parts and a five-year warranty on labor charges. The AUTOMATIC X vacuums include a lifetime warranty on the belts.


Effective Pet Hair Removal
All SEBO vacuums easily remove pet hair!

Remarkably Quiet Operation
Intelligent design and high quality motors combine to provide amazingly quiet vacuums.

Protective Rubber Coated Wheels
Sebo's wheels protect all floor surfaces and provide smooth maneuverability.

Changing Bags is Easy and Clean
SEBO bags take just a few seconds to change, and a cap keeps dust sealed inside.

SEBO Micro filters Ensure Continuously Strong Suction Performance
They are also long lasting, inexpensive and easy to change in seconds. Choose S-class or HEPA filters...either type of filtration is an excellent choice!


Effective Filtration Requires
a Tightly Sealed Vacuum
Dirty air, which flows through a vacuum, can only be filtered completely if it does not escape into the room through seams or seals in the machine. This is why all SEBO vacuums have tight seals throughout.

Many vacuum companies with high filtration claims are actually quoting specifications made by the manufacturer of the filter material, as measured in the laboratory, not the filtration effectiveness of the vacuum itself while operating. Whether or not dirty air can escape through leaks in the body of the machine is not considered. The filtration effectiveness of SEBO vacuums is tested while they operate.

Both S-class and HEPA Filters are Available
S-class filters come standard on all SEBO vacuums, and HEPA filters are an option available for most models. They both remove 99.97% of particles down to 0.3 microns in size and 100% of particles of one micron and above. For comparison, 100 microns is the diameter of a human hair.

Excellent for Users With Allergies or Asthma
The British Allergy Foundation recommends SEBO filters.

Step One. Bags are Better!
Top fill, three and four layer bags are an integral part of Sebo's filtration system because they hold virtually all dirt captured by the vacuum, which improves the effectiveness and useful life of the micro filters. They also ensure continuously strong suction because dirt enters from the top, deposits at the bottom, accumulates upward, and air exits through the sides, which allows unimpeded airflow as they fill to capacity. And they can be sealed when full, so no dust can escape into the air during disposal.


In contrast, without bags to hold nearly all the captured dirt, the micro filters on bagless vacuums quickly clog from excessive dirt buildup and must be replaced often or a loss of suction and cleaning effectiveness will occur. In addition, dust and other allergens become airborne when emptying the bagless dirt containers. Lastly, bagless vacuum micro filters are expensive, usually costing more than a multiyear supply of SEBO filter bags.

Step Two. S-class Micro Filters
S-class (S =“Schwebstoff” = airborne particles) filters are made from electrostatically charged microfiber material, which attracts and captures dust particles from the airflow of the vacuum. The S-class Standard requires filters to absorb greater than 99.9% of particles down to 0.3 microns in diameter. Their advantages are a relatively open texture that allows smoother airflow for better suction performance, a long-lasting life expectancy, and they typically cost less than HEPA filters. A charcoal S-class micro filter, designed for odor absorption, is also available for most models.

Step Two. HEPA Micro filters (Optional)
HEPA (“High Efficiency Particulate Air”) filters remove a minimum of 99.97% of all airborne particulate matter down to 0.3 microns in diameter. Because these filters use small grid like structures to capture dust particles, dirt buildup clogs the airflow pathway sooner than what is expected from S-class filters. However, Sebo's HEPA filters are sold along with four layer “Ultra bags,” which provide highly effective filtration before the airflow goes through the HEPA filter, greatly increasing its life expectancy and reducing the potential for diminished air flow from blockages of the filter material.

Step Three. Exhaust Filter
The exhaust filter cleans the air emitted by the vacuum motor.
