Sebo X4 Extra
Advantages: Well made, solid, reliable and effeicient
Disadvantages: Bags & filters a little pricey, but bundle deals are around & good value
My last vacuum was a 'hoover' and whilst it seemed like a good one, until I bought my Sebo I didn't realise how good vacuums could be.
I shopped in John Lewis for my vacuum after having the Sebo brand recommended to me by a repair shop.
It's not very light (there are lighter ones from Sebo), but it is compact and easy to use. The handle is long enough to be suitable for a good reach when 'mowing' the carpet. All the accessories that come with it for edges, stairs and furniture are solid and well made. They fit nicely into the back of the vacuum and are held in place by strong plastic clips. The hose is a generous length, recoiling back into the body of the vacuum nicely so you are not having to gather it up or fall over it.
The cable is solidly made and curls around the back of the body of the vacuum and held in place securely.
The 'finish' is very good, with very strong bristles underneath picking up dust and dirt well on hard surfaces and carpets alike. It automatically adjusts itself to the surface you are vacuuming, even down to the pile height. It recognises this and makes the subtle adjustment.
The bag is of a good size and it's easy to change. With the replacement bags you get a plastic disc which covers the hole of the bag you have taken off. This stops all the dust escaping all over the place! You need to maintain two filters in the machine, both of which are easy to get to, take out and replace. They are not cheap to replace, but if you buy a bundle (service pack I think it's called) its works out very good value.
A warning light is built in to alert you to blockages should they occur.
I have owned my Sebo X4 for approximately six years now and I haven't had a complaint to make. I would recommend it and buy another one...if this one ever needs replacing!
Summary: An excellent vacuum which has stood the test of 6 years & 2 children - would recommend!
