A Disappointing Vacuum Cleaner
Member Name: DavyMichelle
Advantages: Worked Initially, Now Inexpensive
Disadvantages: Was Grossly Over Priced, Failed Ahead of Time, Hard Work
These days you'd only look to pay around £70 for one of these vacuum cleaners because they're no longer the latest fashion. When we bought this though, we paid well over £200 for ours and that was only about four years ago now. When we bought it, the Mrs chose it because she did most of the housework. Now I work less, I do most of it and I'll be choosing a better vacuum cleaner than this piece of junk I tell you!
To start with I remember this being a decent vacuum. It's quite heavy to use but it did suck up all the dirt with ease for the first year or so. It wasn't long before I was frequently being called to untangle the brushes though and to have a look at why it wasn't doing so well.
Now we find that the vacuum cleaner isn't working at all when you push it along. If you use the nozzle, great - it works fine. But trying to use it as an upright just doesn't do anything besides move the dirt around. I know four years is a long time to have an appliance but I expected more from such an expensive model and reputable brand name.
I don't think we really had our money's worth out of this and to be honest I may just buy a little £40 number this time and replace it in a year or two's time as that will work out cheaper in the long run.
Summary: Not Recommended.
