I have very mixed feelings about Henry. I've owned a Panasonic and a Hoover that used bags, a bag- less Dyson upright and a bag-less Bissell upright so, obviously, I'm not sold on any one vacuum cleaner yet.
The Henry was bought after I got tired of the Bissell throwing dust back into the room despite having bought all the new filters. Enough was enough. I probably would have gone back to Dyson except for the fact I was tired of emptying the dirt out of the cylinder and the hefty price tag. So I started my search. Criteria: a bag this time around and something that was not going to fall over every time I used the hose attachment. I considered Miele but again, price got in the way. Ditto Bosch. Also, their replacement bags were expensive and people wrote the wands were not terribly robust. So I decided on Henry.
What I like: Henry is very versatile and the attachments are of good quality, quite numerous too.
The replacement bags don't need changing often - like 2 - 4 months depending how much you vacuum.
Henry works well in the yard vacuuming out my car. He works well in my greenhouse vacuuming up leaves, dirt, webs, etc. He works well in my garden shed too. I think he has the potential of being a workhorse for years.
What I don't like: He does take up room. He isn't that nimble around furniture (but he tries hard - just look at his face!) He really doesn't work that well on carpet. I think he gets it clean but he doesn't lift up the pile like the upright Dyson used to or the Bissell. In fact, my carpet seems quite 'flat' now having had Henry in the house. I also have the carpet roller attachment but although it removes pet hair pretty well, it doesn't really get the carpet pile up either.
To sum up: I'm still undecided.
I got this hoover as my last one (a vac bagless hoover) packed up.
I was reluctant to go for a bagged one at first because of the effort and cost involved when running out of bags.
I did a bit of research by looking at reviews and talking to friends who have used Henry's and came to conclusion that this was the one to go for.
I am very pleased that I did.
This hoover is superb and is so nice and easy to use. Changing the bags is so straight forward they are strong and fit in the hoover easily. The hoover is easy to take apart to do this.
The thing I like the most with this hoover is how strong and robust it is. It can take being bashed about and you can even stand on the thing. It is indestructible!
It is very easy to use. Comes with various different fittings for the end of the pole for different cleaning jobs.
The power cable is a good long 10 meters which is so useful. Don't have to change sockets all the time.
The suction on this hoover is brilliant making it very easy to pick up all dust. Has side suction too so picks up the whole area you are covering.
I would recommend this hoover to anyone wanting a strong robust hoover that works well.
