The alux vacuum is a cleaner that comes in a bright red colour, and we have had this for many years. It works like a standard vacuum, but has various heads and thing that attach to the pole bit that you whole. Its also a compeltely bagless vacum, and has s sort of plastic capsule at the front where the dust gathers, and you just simply throw this out, which is better for the environment and your wallet comparing with using those bags.
The good? This is a fairly cheap vaccum (i forget how much it was new, but i remember it was in the lower ends for a bagless type), and does the job pretty well i guess. Getting used to it is a bit tricky at first, as the instructions aren't very good, and everything seems to be not where you expect it to be. It doesn't have a "high power mode", you have to sort of press the power button, but i just hoover high power, whats the real problem with doing that?
It has 2 main buttons, one for power, one for the wire reel drawing in the wire. It also has a catch for removing the dust pot (not sure what the real name is).
One problem i have had with the cleaner is the wheels, it a sort of 2x1 arrangement, 2 wheels at the back, 1 and the front, and it means that sudden turns can tip the thing over. Also the vacumm isn't very moveable, its kinda prone to getting caught on things. But this is a fairly minor probem.
So, what to give it? I think i will give this 4/5. It does everything it says on the tin, and does it perfectly well, it just doesn't strive to do anything special, and honestly there is nothing standing this out from competition apart from the bagless system, so i guess it puts it aboe a 3/5. But honestly, just think of this as a bog standard cleaner that doesn't need bags.
Summary: kinda bog standard really
