I bought this product about 4 months ago and have used it at least once a day since then. With this I have only had to empty the dirt collection compartment twice! We have recently decorated and it has picked up small peices of wallpaper as well as our usual mess and sawdust from our hamsters.
There are two different attatchments for the hose, this is quite limited but it is useful if you only need the hose attatchment for corners or similar areas. There is a tube which attatches to the hose to make it extend. this is useful to reach into ceiling corners to suck up those cob webs!!
Well it's pretty simple to empty, to just detatch the storage
compartment and tip it into the bin, most of the dirt and dust falls
straight out. I would recommend doing it outside though as it may
make a bit of a mess.
The price is relatively cheap for this brand, and ours cost around £70. Additional charges may apply for a reuseable and cleanable filter, although we have not yet had to replace our filter, and find that removing it and dusting it into my bin helps.
There is a dial on the front of the machine to change the setting for longer carpets or shorter carpets. The suction is excellent for all types of carpets and you can feel it pulling the flattened carpets back to life! The only negative aspect is for wood and flat flooring the suction is more limited, even on the closest setting, but it does pick up most of the debris. I would advise not to use the machine on lino flooring if possible, especially not on a high setting, as it pulls on the flooring. I have found that it is ok on a setting for higher carpets. Also on flat flooring, often sometimes the dirt is blown around from the power of the machine.
Overall I do love this machine mainly for carpets and have bragged about the suction power to my family and friends, as it has revived my carpets.
