TOWSON, Md., May 2, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- BLACK+DECKER®, a Stanley Black & Decker brand (NYSE: SWK) setting the standard for cordless innovation and home product design, introduces its latest innovation in stick vacuuming, the BLACK+DECKER® POWERSERIES™ Extreme™ MAX (BHFEB520D1). The new product features an extended runtime, with up to 56 minutes of runtime in hand vac mode* and up to 37 minutes runtime in stick vac mode. It also includes an anti-tangle beater bar that helps reduce hair wrap and a cyclonic filtration system that helps the vacuum filter stay clean for strong suction.

"At BLACK+DECKER, we are committed to making cleaning easy so that people can clean their homes more efficiently and have more time to do the things they love," said Aldon Blackwood, Director of Product Management at BLACK+DECKER. "We took aspects of vacuuming that were making chore time longer, like the dreaded hair wrap on the beater bar or clogged filters, and we addressed those concerns with anti-tangle and cyclonic filtration technology - bringing cleaning to the forefront of innovation."

POWERSERIES™ Extreme™ MAX Features Include:  

  • An updated floorhead design with a large diameter, anti-tangle brush bar to help reduce the dreaded hair wrap experienced with other stick vacuums.
  • A cyclonic filtration system to help keep the vacuum filter clean and seal debris in the dustbin.
  • A V-shaped bristle pattern incorporated into the brush bar to pick up messes of various types, including pet hair, dust and crumbs.
  • A floorhead with an easy-release button to allow for simple clean-up of the beater bar and surrounding area as well as LED lights to enhance visibility when cleaning your home.
  • Features a lightweight, portable design that is self-standing, and eliminates the leaning, falls and dustbin spills experienced with some top-heavy, need-to-lean stick vacuum models.
  • A 20V MAX* removable battery that can be used with various other BLACK+DECKER 20V MAX* products, a cup charger, a wall mount for easy storage, an on-pole accessory holder, 2-in-1 brush and a pet hair and crevice tool.

The BLACK+DECKER POWERSERIES™ Extreme™ MAX (BHFEB520D1) (MSRP: $229.99) is now available on, and at additional retailers. For more information about the POWERSERIES™ Extreme™ MAX, please visit,
