Riccar has been producing and manufacturing vacuums in the United States for over fifty years. Currently based out of California, Riccar America sells upright vacuums, canister vacuums, lightweight vacuums (eight pounds) and central vacuum systems. Their slogan is "The first name in vacuums that last," and that slogan shows their commitment to producing quality and durable vacuum cleaners.

The upright vacuum line features sealed HEPA filtration and some include a seven-stage additional filtration system. Some Riccar upright vacuums also feature their patented Tandem Air design, which uses two source of airflow to keep dirt out of the motor. Many of the Riccar upright vacuums have luxury features such as a brush roll jam indicator light and a bag full indicator light.. They include multiple tools and accessories to increase the flexibility of the vacuum. Many of the cords on the upright vacuums are retractable. The canister vacuums are recommend for homes that have a mix of carpeting and hardwood surfaces. Riccar canister vacuums are exceptionally quiet and include sealed HEPA filtration. There is a line of both full size and compact canister vacuums. The lightweight vacuums weight only eight pounds and most models include HEPA filtrations as well.

Though none of the Riccar vacuums are bagless, they feature many advance filtration systems (some are HEPA, some are multiple stage filtrations, some are a combination of systems). Riccar also offers a line of central vacuum systems with two types of filtration systems: filtered cyclonic and performance HEPA (a bagged model). There is also a line of specialty vacuums from Riccar that includes a handheld vacuum, and a stick vacuum. All Riccar vacuums come back with a limited warranty in the event of problems and most of belts on Riccar vacuums have a lifetime warranty.
