Disclosure: I received these products for free to review. The opinions in my review are honest and my own.
While I have never had an issue with my vacuum, it has lead to a lot of aches and pains with a two story house with a finished basement. Our old Dyson is very heavy and without the assistance of my husband, it is almost impossible to get it up and down stairs with my height. It isn’t that I can’t carry it, but the vacuum is nearly as tall as me AND heavy. Since we need a better vacuum for both sets of stairs, we decided to start looking at various light vacuums on the market. As we were searching, we discovered the Gtech AirRam. Wanting to learn more about it, I reached out to the company, who asked me to review this super light vacuum. Excited, I waited anxiously for it to arrive, knowing that this could very well be the answer to our stair problem!
Gtech AirRam: What is It
Want to know what makes this vacuum even better? With its 4 inch profile it can get under furniture easily, making cleaning under furniture a breeze. It even works on all type of flooring, allowing you to easily clean carpet, hardwood, and even stairs! With its energy efficient and easy to use design, it could easily be the perfect vacuum for every household! To learn more, make sure to check out the awesome video below about the GTech AirRam.
Gtech AirRam: Overall
Before I go any further, I have to say this vacuum is absolutely awesome. When I first started vacuuming I couldn’t believe this little vacuum was so powerful. It was grabbing the carpet and picking up things that sometimes give our Dyson issues. Best of all, it was very easy to maneuver, allowing me to clean just about anywhere in the house. Where it really shined, however, was with our stairs. My husband and I both were able to easily manipulate it on the stairs, and our stairs looked great afterward (maybe the best since we moved in the house). While you may still have to get tight corners and along the wallboard with a hosed vacuum, this can easily take on 98% of all vacuuming jobs. So far, I absolutely love this vacuum and consider it a must for anyone with carpeted stairs. Based on my families own experience with this vacuum, I am delighted to give the Gtech AirRam an A+ rating!

claudia m says
great review ! and the Gtech AirRam sounds like it really does a great job. No Cord, lightweight …yes please 🙂
Susan Bewley says
I was skeptical but it really is amazing. I am also surprised at the cheap price. We paid a lot more for our previous vacuum 🙂
Sally T. says
I really could use a light weight vacuum cleaner.I have problems doing
stairways with my good ole’ heavy expensive one.
Susan Bewley says
Yes, stairs are my nemesis. It was such a pain doing them before we had this vacuum. My husband seemed to also being having fun with it (I won’t complain if he wants to help clean 😉 )
md Kennedy says
I am so intrigued by the “baling” concept of this vacuum, and the power you say it has. I hate pulling out my full-size vacuum every day and this may be a great replacement.
Susan Bewley says
It really is fantastic. I am still amazed at how much power this little vacuum has. I easily carrying this vacuum downstairs with one hand 🙂
I like that you can clean under furniture. That’s where so much dust collects. I usually trash a Swiffer pad dusting under the bed and sofa.
beverly i paquin says
sounds great. would like one.
This is a great vacuum and would be great for having to do the stairs and upstairs of a house. Thank you for your review.
The Gtech AirRam sounds great. I like that it can be easily transported to get dirt on the stairs. I am not that strong so I am glad I could transport it from room to room to clean properly.
I really like the idea of a lightweight vacuum like this. It makes it easy to tote up and down the stairs and maneuver. However, the price seems a bit high for us right now.
Alona Y says
Wow, I would love to have this! We have the same issue with 2 stories and a basement, I got a vacuum thinking it would be great but it’s so heavy and hard to lug around.
Wanda Bergman says
I’ve been looking for a new lightweight vacuum cleaner. I would LOVE to own this!
Claire D says
I would be curious to know how it does with pet hair. Otherwise, sounds nice!
Veronica Lee says
My current vacuum cleaner just died on me and this post couldn’t have been more timely! Bagless, cordless, and lightweight? Sold!
Ronald G says
As a 62 year old bachelor I sure could use an easy to use machine like this
DENISE SMITH says
i have one of these i love it it is light weight and easy to go around and clean hard areas in my home
Dandi D says
I really need a new vacuum, and this looks like a great one to try!
saminder gumer says
i love the fact that it cleans all over the house with such ease. i really need this because i have tile, carpet and hard wood all in my home.
Melissa S says
I could use a light vacuum that actually works for quick clean ups. It would be awesome to not have to drag out my heavy one.
Vennie M. says
Wow! What a great thing! Lightweight, no cord…a dream come true!
Maureen G says
This sounds ideal for daily use. I very much like the lightweight feature as my old vacuum is a back-breaker!
Paula @ The Tween & Me says
Wow! I love the lightweight yet strong aspect! I am adding the GTech AirRam vacuum to my list of vacuums to dream about (and put on my wish list!)
Kellie Murray says
This looks like the perfect vacuum for me. I was hit head on by an 18 wheeler in 1987 and now after many surgeries I have problems with my back and right leg. I have also had carpal tunnel surgery twice on my dominant hand as well as shoulder surgery (isn’t it fun to get olde? lol) The vacuum being lightweight would be a huge benefit as well as no cord to trip over. This just sounds like an amazing tool. Best of luck to all. Thanks for the opportunity to win such an amazing tool.
Sarah Elyce says
I like that it is cordless and bagless- the cord always gets in the way! It looks like it is great for stairs like you said.
I love that it cleans hardwood without scratching and reaches under furniture. There is so much dust under the bed. To get to it I have to move the bed, and scratch up the floor.
June S. says
This is awesome, I could use it for our upstairs carpet stairway instead of lugging that huge heavy vacuum up and down the stairs.
Debbie Welchert says
Boy this vacuum has everything I need. It’s lightweight, easy to clean and cordless. I also love that it only takes four hours to charge.
kathy downey says
Gtech AirRam sounds like it really does a wonderful job. I really like that it has no Cord is lightweight and also come with a fair price.
Jennifer Hiles says
My two favorite features is that it is cordless (I’ve never owned a cordless vacuum!). I also love that you can use it on all surfaces. We have carpets, hardwood and ceramic tiling so to be able to use one device for all would be fabulous!
OMG I would love to have this. It would be much better than the one I have.
Thanks for the great review. This sounds like a life saver. I have back problems and I like that this is a powerful but light weight vacuum.
Terri S says
This sounds like a fantastic vacuum. I have such a hard time dragging mine up the stairs. It weighs so much! UGH! Keeping my fingers crossed… 🙂
barbara corbitt says
you did a great review. you ansered all the questions i had about this wonderful product. it is super powerful, light weight, cordless and low profile to fit under furniture. what more could a person want in a vaccuum! babscorbitt at gmail dot com
Lauryn R says
This vacuum seriously looks so amazing! I love, love that it is cordless! It gets annoying (and tiring) having to lug the vacuum around the whole house, replugging it in every room!
Brigid OHara Koshko says
This sounds like the vacuum for me. I hate dirty carpet and with kids and lots of critters I am always vacuuming. I have a really hard time moving my vacuum around because it is so heavy. Stairs are impossible for me. This really would help me out.
Bri Galloway says
This vacuum has intrigued me! I love your review and would love to win this! I would totally buy this based on the reviews. I also paid way more for the vacuum I own and would love something this lightweight. Also the bailing system is so cool! I have three Great Danes and 6 cats…..so this would be well loved in my household! Thank you for reviewing this and for the opportunity to win this vacuum!
Amy Ditmore says
This little thing sounds amazing. My vacuum is about wore out so I’m looking for a better quality one, and I love that this is cordless as well. I think it would be great for the allergies in our home.
Cheryl Rahkonen says
This vacuum is amazing. I love that it hangs flat–it wouldn’t have to sit in my bedroom. I love that it compacts the dust into little bricks and is so easy to clean. I think the best feature is that it is lightweight for going up and down stairs and that it will clean under furniture. I did not read one thing or see one thing in the video that I did not like. I must have me one of these.
sherry butcher says
Lots of information here and this vacuum sounds great. I have beige carpart and a black dog so the pet hair removal is so important to me. TFS.
anna pry says
I have a lightweight dirt devil vacuum but it is corded and doesn’t work well. I need one that works better on carpeting because i usually have to go over our rugs very slowly to get the crumbs up.
Christina Kelbel says
I love that this is so light, hate lugging heavy vacs around the house. I could really use this since ours just quit recently and cannot afford new one right now. Fingers crossed 🙂
Rita Spratlen says
I always have trouble with vacuums. I am going to be moving from a 4000 square foot home to a smaller home. I have had so many stairs to do. I also have 5 animals which makes it hard. I love the ease that this one seems to have. I love that it changes from carpet to hardwoods. This is a great feature too!! Thanks for the great review.
I so much would love to have one of these vacuums . I like that it is lightweight – good for me. Cordless is another good thing for me- wont fall over the cord. My grandson likes to vacuum so he could help me using this one
Deb E says
I just love how tiny it is. Also I’ve had carpal tunnel and need a lightweight vacuum or the cleaning just won’t get done. Glad this one is lightweight.
David Smith says
I like that it is cordless and uses a 22 volt battery for high power. Also it has lifetime washable filters and even a USB connection.
I’d most love the cordless feature and being able to vacuum under things properly, to finally get them clean! Honestly, before today I couldn’t even fathom a cordless vacuum, but it makes so much sense!
Linda Pannell says
Wow! What a great review you gave for the GTECH AirRam! I am looking for a lightweight yet powerful vacuum for my home and this one is perfect! Thanks for the chance to win!! 🙂
Dana Rodriguez says
Awesome review!!! I hate my current vacuum.It is bulky,heavy and doesn’t pick up as well as I would like.I want my home clean without a huge hassle and this looks perfect!
Ms Heidi L Johnson says
Being disabled this would be the perfect tool for me. I can’t wait to try it!
Claire D says
If this vacuum is every bit as good as you say it is then I’m in love. It has all the features I’m looking for – lightweight, powerful sucking, can be used on multiple surfaces, and lasts long enough to do more than one room.
Lynn C. says
This is a brilliant design! I love that there’s no cord to get tangled and caught. I’m especially impressed that the debris is compressed and “baled” to allow for a slimmer machine profile. Way to use your noggins, AirRam! I’d absolutely love to win this!
debra dubois says
This is terrific i sure would love to own this i enjoyed your review. THANKS!
Lynn C. says
I’m really glad you brought this great machine to our attention! If it has strong suction as you say, it just may be the best sweeper out there.
Pam H. says
I want a lightweight vacuum that actually cleans up everyday messes. I have a 10-year-old Dyson, but it’s such a beast. I have to have my husband carry it up and down floors for me.
Karen Jaras says
Half the price of my Dyson that is now too heavy to push or pull much less carry up the stairs since I broke my back last fall. This lightweight and inexpensive alternative would really help me keep up with my housekeeping without having to hire a cleaning crew that breaks my budget.
Jenny Moses says
I definitely need this vacuum. Between the two dogs and a toddler, I’m way in over my head on the cleaning. I’ve got many dirty little feet to clean up after!
Dorothy Teel says
How cool this would be since it is light, makes it easily moveable, works for up to 40 minutes on a charge, no power cord to stumble over or to have to replug as you move and bagless, which makes it wonderful, thank you for sharing this review.
alesha ol says
this sounds just like thy vacuum we need, one to overtake our rugs, our dirt without manhandling it, and us,vice versa, in the process. We go through too many vacuums, with kids,, now cats..from your information, this sounds like a great vac!!
barnolds barnes says
I’m excited to read it works so well on stairs. We have a set of carpeted stairs and I can’t really vacuum them properly as it is now.
Janis Hill says
Can you believe that after all these years someone has finally come up with a vacuum that is light weight and can turn on a dime? Gtech did it! This has to be the world’s easiest vacuum to use. Even someone as old as me can easily navigate it and end up with clean floors! And that is not always and easy task.
Brooke Owens says
This would be fantastic for me so I could carry it around. The design looks like it will makes it easy to get in tight places and under things and when you have kids and a dog this is a must!
Nu. 1 – have no vacuum Nu.2. I need a lightweight one Nu.3 like that its bagless Nu. Sure would be good for getting cat hair up. Lots of reasons to have one of these.
Joyce Alexander says
I liked how easy the Gtech AirRam appears to be able to operate! Your review is fab! The vid is short, sweet & to the point! Also has me really wanting one. I can’t believe how long & hard I’ve looked & how much money & time I’ve spent looking for just the right vacuum! You know ‘the ONE’…’the last one I’ll never need to buy’ one. But so far I’m just not satisfied. Hopefully I can win this one & then I can tell everyone how happy I am with it & how they all need to get one! Since there is no way my husband will let me buy another one.
Karen Dyer says
This vacuum sounds wonderful! I think it will do a great job on my stairs! Thanks for offering this sweepstakes! I’d love it!
BRENDA DWYER says
NOT ONLY WOULD I LOVE TO WIN THIS BECAUSE I WANT IT,BUT BECAUSE I TRULY NEED IT!! I SUFFER WITH CONSTANT CHRONIC NEUROPATHY PAIN THAT BASICALLY LIMITS EVERYTHING I DO…BECAUSE OF ELEVATING PAIN LEVELS..:/ THIS IS LIGHT ENOUGH IT WOULD HELP ME OUT SO MUCH!! I ALSO HAVE 2 CATS WHO SHED ALOT..SO WITH THIS BEING SAID YES I WANNA WIN THIS!! THANK YOU FOR SUCH A WONDERFUL OPPORTUNITY!
I am very interested in the tiny debris bales! I’ve never heard of that! I’m glad to hear it works well on hardwood floors.
Valarie Davenport says
This looks like an amazing vacuum. I need something lightweight that is really effective. I have a back injury and vacuuming really does a number on me. It doesnt help that I live with two really sloppy guys (my hubby and my dad) and a dog that sheds like crazy. Thanks for bringing this to my attention.
Daniel Velez says
This is cool! I love how the vacuum is cheap, effective, and just totally awesome!
Rhonda Martin says
I really like that the AirRam is cordless and light weight. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and I can not use a regular vacuum because they are to heavy and the cord gets in the way of my wheeled chair. To Vacuum has been impossible. I hate using the broom because it just blows dust and dog hair every where.
I’m in bad need of a new vacuum. This one looks awesome!!! I have a large carpeted stairway – And that is the worst to vacuum! The air ram makes it look easy!
Jo-Ann Brightman says
I think that this vacuum sounds great. I have arthritis and need a light vacuum that works, especially since I have to go up and down stairs to clean the entire house. I like that it compresses the dirt into tiny bales.
I would love to own one of these because I am unable to use a regular sized vacuum at this time due to an injury I sustained over a year ago. I think this would work for me because it is so lightweight.
Suz Saves says
This vacuum looks amazing! My cat and I both have terrible allergies so this looks perfect! I love that it’s lightweight and works on carpet and hardwood too! Also, that it doesn’t blow dust when using it because my current one does that! Thanks for the great review!
Amy S. says
This vacuum looks awesome. I love that it is cordless, lightweight, and actually picks up dirt. It seems like you can find two of the three in other vacuums but not all three together. Thanks for posting this and I’ll be sure to look into it when we get a new vacuum soon!
I love that this is light weight, bagless, and no cord. This would make cleaning my apartment so easy and seems like an easier vacuum to use than my current one.
Hannah Avery says
This would be so awesome for the stairs in our new house! I like that it is light to carry up stairs. Also, I like that it is cord less, because it bugs me when cords come out of the sockets while I am vacuuming
Edna Williams says
I really am amazed that it is bagless. I love that it only uses a battery.
Rhonda Martin says
This is exactly what I need. The AirRam from GTech has all the features I’m looking for. It’s cordless, light weight, Bagless and more. With Rheumatoid Arthritis I can’t use a regular vacuum. The cord gets caught up in the wheels of the chair and my hands can’t hold anything heavy. This is the perfect machine for me. I’ve pinned it to my wish list. Thanks for introducing us to GTech AirRam.
Wow! no bag, no cord and I think this would make for a great cleaning machine. Can’t wait to win this awesome vacuum cleaner!
Rebecca Swenor says
This would so come in handy. I have three dogs and watch my niece and nephew who are 5 and 3 years old.
Marlene A Green Cooper says
I love that this is very light weight, and can go from wood floors to laminate to carpet (all of which I have in my home). Being disabled I need something that’s easy to use and my Dyson is not allowing me to use it the way I want to w/ the RA in my hands. This seems like it would do the job perfectly.
From the review this looks like a good product. I have not been able to find a decent vacuum in years. Between breaking belts and spewing dust, I need something that works well.
Stacey Kostich says
I also have a Dyson and although I love it for its suctioning power, it is very heavy and cumbersome to lug up and down the stairs. I would love to try a much lighter, still as powerful vacuum.
This vacuum looks amazing! I have been using one with a hose that is so hard to pull around. This looks much easier.
Loraine Ellis says
I really enjoyed this review. We are in the market for a vacuum and it’s so hard to not just cave on some Walmart brand. So we continue to look and might purchase this one!
i love the fact that it does the work nicely and is easy to carry as i like lightweight vacuums the one i have is very heavy and very difficult to carry it breaks my back easily and i have to think twice to vacuum.
GL Long says
I just purchased a highly rated upright and am not at all happy with it. The Gtec AirRam has all the features my over-rated upright does not. It’s cordless (yeah!). It’s light weight (yeah!). It’s easy to maneuver (yeah!). My back kills me when I use my current upright so I don’t use it very often. I need the Gtec AirRam so I can keep my house clean.
Cordless, light weight and bag-less!? Wow!! The 4 inch profile could be an issue with vacuuming a large area because it would take longer…or didnt you find that to be the case since it sucked up so much better than say a 12-15 inch vacuum?? I would love to have one of these since our old vacuum died. We had a old Bissel for 8 years!!! It was wonderful and sadly when we had to replace it (because it was making a weird noise for months and I was waiting for it to blow up), we got another bissel only to be disappointed on how cheap they had gotten over the years. It is not sealed or sucks up like the old one did (even with the seals drying out). It kicks litter every where and does not seem to pick up as much cat hair as much as I would like….not to mention our 2 year old tripping over the cord because he just has to dodge the vacuum every time I use it or blowing a fuse when it’s summer time and running the air conditioners. It would just be wonderful just pick up a vacuum and go!!! Esp when our son decides to make a huge amount of crumbs with his poptarts in the morning. :/
Angela P. says
Wow.. I need one of these. My lightweight vacuum sucks up nearly nothing.. and my big one that actually does work weighs a ton. I hate dragging it up and down the stairs. This would be great.
cheryla lister says
This sounds like an amazing little vacuum! With my allergies, I always have to have someone else in the family empty it. I could probably take care of this one myself.
This looks like a fun vacuum. I’d like to try it out at my house.
I really like that the handles rotate, and mostly like that this is light weight. My much loved light weight oreck vaccuum is currently on the fritz and we’re in the market for a new one. We are definitely considering this one.
Karen Beckett says
Wonderful review! Lightweight & super efficiency – what more could you ask for in a vacuum? I really am hoping to win, as my old vacuum has seen better days!
Susan Smith says
I really could use a light weight vacuum cleaner.I have problems doing stairways with my heavy expensive one. I love that it’s cordless lightweight and bagless.
Danelle reed says
I am also having trouble with my vacuum being that I am a towering 5 feet tall, haha!. I currently own a Kirby and its great but soooo heavy. I cant do the stairs with it and the attachments are a real pain in the rear to put on then take back off again. my poor neglected stairs!
Sharon Siqueiros says
This looks like the perfect vacuum for our home! I really like that it can be used on wood floors, that probably means I could also use it on the tile in the family room…..all those little pesky,puppy hairs under the furniture is making me crazy hahaha!
Thanks for your honest review
Bobbie Smith says
I have to say I have never heard of this vacuum until reading your review on it. I think it’s absolutely wonderful that it is lightweight and no cord! I love the idea of not having to lug my big ole vacuum around, and not having to fight with cord when I’m vacuuming.
paula v says
Wow…when you said bagless I’m like okay so where does the magician magically make the debris go. Haha…tiny bales. That’s so cool. Honestly, I don’t vacuum my stairs much because of the heavy vacuum. On occasion I use my dust buster.
I really like that it’s so lightweight; perfect for lugging up my stairs. I also like that it’s cordless.
kathy pease says
This looks really awesome! I have a small dirt devil currently and it does not seem to clean very well
Christina Strapp says
I love love that it is cordless and light weight. Looks like it would work well with pet hair.
laurie nykaza says
I really could use a lightweight vacuum cleaner because I have 4 cats in the house and 3 disc out in my back and this would help me to do the floors each day.The old one is to heavy for me to pull out everyday this one would be perfect to use.
Lily Kwan says
This vacuum looks very useful. Thanks for sharing!
jenn huey says
I’ve never had much luck with a cordless vacuum, but this one looks super and I also need something lightweight and not too bulky because I am so short its hard to carry any vacuum up and down the stairs.
Brittany Frazier says
This looks like a amazing product and I would love to have one. I have many health issues and vacuuming is something I do enjoy doing but takes me forever to do because vacuums are so heavy, plus I have a 2 yr old chasing me around wanting to help but he can’t operate our vacuum. He totally could this one though. Haha
RICHARD HICKS says
This is a vacuum that I would love to have. Lightweight so that you don’t get tired doing it and powerful at the same time.
maria carrasco says
This vacuum sounds amazing. I really like that it is lightweightand energy efficient. I also like that it is cordless.
