When we first moved into our home we brought a cheap as chips vacuum cleaner and it did its job. We have recently (April) had a dog who has started moulting like crazy due to the heat, which means hair is all over the hard wood floor, hair is matted into the carpets and rugs and our current vacuum cleaner wasn't doing its job.
We decided to purchase this vacuum and so far haven't been disappointed. It is lighter than our previous vacuum and it has more suction which is just what we needed. We can now vacuum every few days and our house looks spotless.
We paid £140 for it from an independent store and it has been worth every penny.
Our previous vacuum would clean fine on the hard wood floor but as soon as it went onto carpet it wouldn't pick any of the dog hair up. Now this vacuum picks up everything! I have had to clean it a few times but I have added this as part of your vacuum ritual to ensure we get a good life out of it.
+++Ease of use+++
It is quite heavy compared to my parents vacuum (a Dyson), but it is much lighter than our previous vacuum. My girlfriend finds it much easier to carry around when she uses it. Before, I had to help take it upstairs and hold it when hoovering the stairs, now she can do this without effort.
The extra brushes and accessories also make it a great machine to have. We find changing to the brush when cleaning the stairs gets better results than just the hose.
Cleaning the hoover is also a relatively easy task, it takes me around 10 minutes to clean every inch of it thoroughly.
The only bad thing is how it looks, but at the end of the day if it cleans well, who cares! With the additional brushes and accessories it makes cleaning easier and it does a great job! Our house is looking cleaner than ever.
