Sebo Automatic X8 Dark Blue

AUTOMATIC X models are the most technically advanced and uniquely easy-to-use vacuum cleaners in the world! Available in two power head widths, the 12-inch X7 and 15-inch X8 feature truly automatic height adjustment, an LED headlight, and an extra layer of micro-filtration. An electronic controller measures the resistance of the spinning brush roller against the floor surface and then signals up or down adjustments, to ensure optimal performance on both carpets and hard floors. The user is alerted to clogs, a worn brush, or a full bag, and the vacuum automatically shuts off when brush obstructions occur. The X7 and X8 also have an instant-use cleaning wand and suction hose, a lifetime belt warranty, tool-free brush roller removal, a 40-foot power cord, three on-board attachments, and excellent pet hair removal.


The three-X7 Premium models also offer the user a choice between two modes of brush roller aggressiveness! The default setting is perfect for most flooring types, but by pressing the Brush-mode Button located on the power head, the spinning brush roller is allowed to attain greater resistance against the floor surface before upward height adjustments are made, which causes deeper brush action on carpets and rugs. However, the X8 does not have a Brush-mode Button. The X7 Premium PET also includes a turbo brush, a nine-foot extension hose, and a microfilter that absorbs pet odors.


The vacuum comes standard with a crevice nozzle, dusting brush, upholstery nozzle, and a large 1.4-gallon filter bag. Also, many optional accessories are available.

It features an S-class pre-motor microfilter, a three-layer AeraPure™ bag, and an exhaust microfilter, all in a tightly sealed casing that prevents dirty air from escaping through its seams.

Its low, flat-to-the-floor profile makes cleaning under furniture easy!

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!

The vacuum’s gradual power-up capability extends motor life.

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 roller, improves hard floor cleaning performance by channeling the airflow and preventing debris kickback.

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

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 excessive use time in a stationary position.

When a full bag, a clog in the airflow pathway, or an excessively dirty microfilter is detected, the red “bag full or clog” warning light remains illuminated, and the vacuum automatically shuts off after 30 seconds to avoid motor damage from a lack of airflow.

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.

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. Installing a new brush roller or just removing accumulated hair is quick and easy, and no tools are required!

The clog removal door is easy to access, and its brush roller and “sealing strip” are easy to replace.

Stop changing vacuum belts! With an AUTOMATIC X, its heavy-duty, geared belts should last the life of the machine!

The AUTOMATIC X7 Premium and X8 models are both equipped with a headlight to illuminate cleaning surfaces in low-light conditions.

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

When it’s in the upright, handle-locked position, the pedal relieves potentially damaging force against the bag housing by unlocking the handle.

All AUTOMATIC X7 models are 12 inches wide with a cleaning path of 10.5 inches and one-sided edge cleaning. The AUTOMATIC X8 is 15 inches wide with a cleaning path of 14.5 inches and two-sided edge cleaning.

Its wheels protect all floor surfaces and provide smooth maneuverability.

It’s easy to carry the vacuum or quickly unwind its cord.
