Advantages: Many updates from previous model, picks up dog hair well
Disadvantages: Handle issues
Had this for about 5 years now, showing no signs of wear and tear, still as good as it was when i got it out the box.
Quality >>>> As stated above, the device is made, in part, from the same materials used in riot shields, so as you'd imagine, makes it a very hard wearing product. I'm pretty sure this thing could deal with being thrown down the stairs. Even when being bitten by the dog, shows no signs of damage. Comes with a good set of attachments, the brush being god for dusting, with a crevice and stair tool. No real need to spend more on extras. They tweaked some old design weakness on the the previous model, mainly:
The hose used to rub and eventually ripped at the connection point > They have added in a piece of flexible rubber that adjusts to which direction you pull the hose in. Done the job.
The crevice tool used to get stuck and cause the machine to pull violently > place a hole on the side. Fixed.
Annoying to empty > Place a button with an under hinged flap for easy emptying. Fixed.
Only issue with this one is that the handle about halfway up, is apparently not for lifting the machine, but as its quite heavy often gets used, and cracks have started to form...
Cleaning >>>> Great suction, picks up dog hair as well as dust and what ever else. This isn't the animal version, but deals with this pretty well when you go over it a couple of times. Easy to clean the filter every 6 months or so. Very long power lead, allows me to do most of the house from a central plug. Hose long and allows you to do the stairs leaving it at the bottom. Also an option to switch between wooden and carpeted flooring.
Summary: Great all round cleaner, pretty heavy and so carrying up stairs could be an issue.
