Kirby (G6) home cleaning system- The kirby was a brilliant buy and well worth the money,£1500 (approx 10 years ago). It's not just an expensive vacuum cleaner, there is a lot more to it than that. Where shall i start?! Ok, it vacuums my carpets and (on the lower setting) the wooden floor. When u accidentally vacuum something larger than a grain of sand (approx), it stays in the 'boot' at the bottom of the bag- no need to rummage anymore for earings! You can change the height settings for different pile carpets. Although noisy, very delicate on carpet and has never caused damage. Always feel as if the carpets have had a good clean, especially if it's the time of the ... Read the complete review

I have never heard anything good about Kirby's sales approach, I'm sure it works OK for the american market, but the british who tend to work on a more suspicous level when it comes to high pressure commision driven sales people is never going to work, we don't like all this good morning sir are you having a nice day by the way that's $300. The british tend to work on here it is, this is what it does, and it costs £x I do understand why they sell it the way they do most people wouldn't even look when they knew the price, however an upmarket selling approach through specialist shops like Bose or maybe through exclusive retailers Like Harrods or John lewis would work ...

If you see the Kirby and you don't buy it you are a filthy pig !! The salesman proved to me in 10 minutes it would get ALL the dirt out of my carpets, that I paid $6000 for. I for one don't want to buy new carpets ever 7-12 years when my kirby will keep them clean and stop them from wearing out. The machine cleans my kids mattresses of dust mites and also shampoos the carpet better than a so called "con man" professional carpet cleaner !! Get real ! Who can get dirt out of carpet by shooting it with hot water ?? That makes mud, mud doesn't float, it stays deep in the carpet to dry, turn back into dust and start wearing my carpet out.... You'll spend $3000 on a . Read the complete review

My parents have a Kirby. Big, heavy monster it is. But in a house with two kids and a mud-loving labrador, it worked better than the alternatives. They only stopped using it because it was too heavy. The weight alone put me off buying one for a few years - but when we bought a house that had been used as a builder's crash pad, the entire place was so filthy that every other cleaner we tried, simply didn't deliver the goods. I can't help wondering if there's some kind of knack the salesmen use to demonstrate the kit - when we had the GSix demo'd at our house, the results were astounding. It lifted out so much concrete dust, sand and ... Read the complete review

I used to sell Kirby vacuums.... just for a short period-- 2 weeks. But that was long enough for me to learn all about their tricks and scams. I was taught to try to sell the Kirby at around $1700- $1900. BUT, the price could be negotiable down to about $900!!!!! So, to let everyone know out there, interested in buying a KIRBY, don't pay more than $1000 for it!!! If you are, all the extra money you're paying, goes right into the pocket of your salesperson. WHAT A RIP OFF!!! don't get fooled!!!!! ... Read the complete review

Annoying bag changing!
Great on sealed hard flooring and Lino, slimmer floorhead, lighter weight.
Takes longer to bring steam through, useless on carpet stain removal, cheap build issues.
Easy to store away and has good suction, everything I need!
I haven't really come across any.
