Product Details

Electrolux Aptitude Upright Vacuum, Model EL5010A

The Strong, Silent Type

  • Superior Comfort
    Aptitude’s ergonomic handle lets you easily navigate your cleaner under and around furniture within your home.
  • Ultra Quiet Design
    Maintaining a peaceful home while cleaning is important. That is why we designed Aptitude to be extremely quiet without sacrificing power.
  • The Perfect Clean Anywhere
    Aptitude has features that allow for cleaning virtually anywhere because keeping your home clean doesn’t just mean vacuuming.
  • Functions Smoothly
    Vacuuming can be easier on you. Aptitude’s gliding tilt design lets you push the vacuum without putting strain on your body.


  • Ergonomic handle
    The Aptitude has a unique, soft-looped ergonomic handle that allows you to maneuver your vacuum easily and reduces the level of strain on your body that often accompanies the use of an upright vacuum.
  • Electronic filter indicator
    You will continue to get the best results and the freshest air from your Aptitude with the electronic filter indicator that allows you to see, at a glance, when the washable HEPA H12 needs to be cleaned.
  • 15-inch cleaning path
    Aptitude's wide, 15-inch cleaning path lets you clean more in one pass than other standard upright models, which leaves you with extra time to spend on the more important things in your life.
  • Variable brush roll speed
    With variable brush roll speeds on the handle you can clean all types of carpeting with ease. Choosing a higher speed will allow you to clean high traffic areas and, with a lower, quieter speed, you can vacuum without disturbing those around you.
  • Innovative gliding tilt
    With Aptitude's innovative, gliding tilt design, you can push your vacuum at a height that is comfortable for you or roll the vacuum flat to reach easily under low furniture, which allows you to clean any surface easily while putting less strain on your body.

      Comments about Electrolux Aptitude Upright Vacuum:

      I returned this product due to the design flaw with the main hose. It attaches from the bottom and was catching on a plastic piece preventing the vacuum from automatically adjusting to the carpet height. I had to reach down and physically move the hose every time. Was a very quiet vacuum and appeared to work well once adjusted, but knew it was just a matter of time until the hose broke and couldn't imagine having to adjust a hose every time with a brand new machine.
