Hoover TC1185 Alyx
Advantages: good suction
Disadvantages: started falling to bits within weeks!
I was very pleased when my husband arrived home from shopping one day with this new hoover in tow. Hoover have always had a good reputation and with three cats, i thought this looked the perfect choice. Little did i know what stress awaited me within that cardboard box!!
I have spent the last year fighting with this hoover and its drove me around the twist. It is lightweight and being bagless, the suction is good. The hoover pipe is extendable and can be pulled out and adjusted to the appropriate hieght for ease of cleaning. Unfortunately within 2 weeks of use the catch had slackened and the pipe now flops in and out like a piston when using it. This is very annoying and painful if it catches your fingers! Not to mention what it does to your stress levels. A few weeks after that the wheel fell off and i ended up dragging the vaccuum behind me until my husband decided to superglue it back on! The attachments are also very poorly designed and soon become loose. This means that they regurlarly fall of when using it and i've actually even tried taping them on! Within three Months the hoover is now in such a state its barely usable, planning to buy a new vaccuum next week sometime and this time it definately won't be a Hoover.
Summary: Not worth it. Bad for your stress levels.
