Disadvantages: Small capacity, but easy to empty.
This vacuum really is quite brilliant! My giant breed long haired dog is moulting at the moment and my current vacuum just wasn't keeping up. I was having to go over and over and over the same spots to get the hair up, and it was really heavy. I have really bad back problems that stops me working and pushing the big heavy vacuum around was really painful. This vacuum is so light on first look you think hmmm is this up for the job, but it really is!!!
I was really excited to get using it, I decided to do my living room first to give it a good test run after I had just brushed my dog in there. It brought it up spotless! I had to go over a few spots twice but nothing like my old vacuum. It did such a good job and was so easy to use, especially with the dual axis it makes it so easy to go around furniture and due to it being quite a small vacuum it fitted under most of my furniture easily saving me so much time and effort.
It was so good and so easy to use I decided I could do the whole house! Some of the carpets that I thought probably needed replacing were brought up lovely, and doing the stairs was really easy. The brushes provided were brilliant for the job. And it being so light, getting it up and down the stairs was brilliant. The cord is also a really decent length so I didn't need to unplug it several times just to move from room to room.
When I got to my bedroom carpet, which I am actually quite embarrassed about because my dogs hair sticks to it like Velcro and it's really low pile and almost impossible to get the hair out. At this point I thought hmmm it's a really good little vacuum but is it this good? I couldn't believe how much hair it brought up! In such a short space of time my bedroom carpet looked as good as before we got a dog!
I had to empty the vacuum twice, which is much easier than other Vax where you have to twist the lid off, this one has a flap on the bottom, I still found I needed to pull the hair from around the filter, but it was much easier than my old Vax and a lot less messy! But after that first vacuum which got a lot of stuff up I didn't even know was in my carpets! I have hardly had to empty it in the few weeks I've had it. It looks like it won't hold very much, but it does get quite compact inside, and it is easy to empty so it's really not a problem to clean out. unlike my last vacuum which I really hated to empty and used to put it off for as long as possible.
Due to this being a "pet" vacuum I should really say my dog wasn't a big fan of my last Vax, this one is much quieter and he doesn't seem to mind it at all. In fact he is asleep almost on it right now as I type this! All in all I would highly recommend this product (which I don't do very often). I have been trying to think of any negatives for it and apart from emptying it a bit more often than my last one I am struggling to think of any.
Summary: Fantastic little vacuum.
