  • Product Overview

    If you want the benefits of a canister vacuum without the bulk, look to the Panasonic MC-CG983 Platinum Canister Vacuum. This lightweight vacuum is part of Panasonic’s Performance Plus Platinum Line. Use it to clean all flooring types, from plush carpet to marble, in addition to drapes, mattresses, ceiling fans, and other housewares. Even if you have a big house, you can rely on this durable, premium vacuum, which includes such features as OptiFlow Technology and a strong 12-amp motor.

    Built to Perform

    The Panasonic MC-CG983 makes vacuuming faster and easier. Its 360-degree swivel hose doesn’t kink or twist, and its extra-wide 14-inch floor power nozzle covers more space. Enjoy the nozzle’s headlight, which is especially helpful when cleaning under furniture. An electronic performance indicator lights up whenever airflow is restricted by a full bag or hose blockage. This vacuum even has an ergonomic handle for added comfort.

    Sturdy Engineering

    Sturdy engineering ensures peak performance and durability. In most vacuums, airflow reduces as the dust bag fills up, which results in less pickup. Panasonic’s unique Optiflow Technology keeps the vacuum working powerfully, even as the bag fills. HEPA filtration prevents 99.97% of particles from exhausting back into the air. And because it's backed by the strength of a 12-amp motor, expect strong suction.

    Additional Features

    • Overload and Thermal Motor Protector—The overload protector stops the power nozzle’s motor if the brush gets jammed. The thermal motor protector turns the vacuum off in case of overheating, which is usually caused by clogs or an overfull bag.

    • Edge Cleaner—Both sides of the floor nozzle are flanked with active brush edge cleaners, allowing you to clean all the way against baseboards and furniture.

    • Manual Height Control—Four levels of height control allow you to adjust the vacuum’s height depending on what you’re cleaning for better suction.


    The Panasonic MC-CG983 Platinum Canister Vacuum is a lightweight vacuum made to clean carpet and smooth floors.

    What Customers Love

    • Cleans Pet Hair—The special Pet Hair Air Turbine Brush attachment can be used to suction up pet hair from stairs, furniture, and floors.

    • Onboard Tools—Onboard tools are stored inside the canister. Use the combination brush and the crevice tool to clean furniture, drapes, and walls. The floor brush can be used on bare floors and walls.

    • Cleans Bare Floors—Use a foot pedal to turn off the brushroll for smooth and easy cleaning of bare floors.  

    Things to Consider

    • Upright Models Available—Do you prefer an upright vacuum? Panasonic has several within the Performance Plus Platinum Line, such as the Panasonic MC-UG729.

    Comments about Panasonic MC-CG983 Platinum Canister HEPA Vacuum Cleaner with OptiFlow:

    While this vacuum cleaner appears to have all the bells and whistles and is fairly effective, it is really not well made. I have replaced wheels and the elbow that joins the cleaner head to the hose. The bags do not fit well and many times I have opened up the bag compartment to find that all the dirt and dog hair have filled the compartment rather than the bag. This was an expensive vacuum. I expected better. I'll not buy another panasonic. (Don't buy Electrolux either. It's no longer made by electrolux. They sold their name to eureka.)

      Comments about Panasonic MC-CG983 Platinum Canister HEPA Vacuum Cleaner with OptiFlow:

      I love this vacuum cleaner. It does a great job and is easy to use.
      Would recommend it to anyone.
      Great price too. Saw it at a vacuum store for $600.00 so I had a chance to look at one and see how it worked.
      It was shipped out fast.
