Great Product


I love this vacuum! It picks up brilliantly and my carpets look great! I like the settings dial that allows the machine to be used on different types of floor and carpet pile length. It is rather heavy to lift up the stairs though. Otherwise cant fault...

Hoover HU4217 Hurricane Pets Bagless Upright Vacuum Cleaner


Fourth vacuum cleaner tried recently and for the money appeared the best. Good but not consistent suction and not convinced plastic parts will survive many years use. Good long cable and comfortable to carry up stairs.

Very Pleased!


Overall I'm very pleased with this vacuum cleaner; it's much quieter than my last one (Vax.....never again!), not to the point where it would send a baby to sleep, but still fairly quiet as poweful vacuum cleaners go. It's also quite light and easy to...
