Poor Battery Life


We purchased the Handy 2in1 a bit over a year ago and the batteries are useless already and it doesn't get used full time and they are not easy to replace, we have been told you can get replaceable batteries but it would nearly cost as much as a new...

Fantastic small but strong vaccy


I found this Nilfisk to do exactly what i wanted and more !!! Very powerful suction apposed to other similar stick vacs , quieter than other brands , very long life on battery which lasts over half an hour , very good filtration compared to others ,...

Very Disappointed - Broke way too easily.


Bought one of these brand new for around $200 (I think?) late 2009, seemed OK for a year or so though I was always unimpressed with the suction from the start. Part of the long handle broke soon after the warranty period expired making it far more...

Relatively lightweight, battery charge seemd to last OK.

Detachment/reconnect options dodgy & weak, some parts of the handles too weak & easily broken, unimpressive suction.

I was a bit skeptical about the capability of this type of vacuum machines, but needed something lighter and more compact for quick cleaning jobs. I have a Nilfisk King vacuum and it's an amazing machine - a real work horse. I've had it for many years...

Great suction power, very manoeuverable, does an excellent job and quickly, great value

The release button for emptying the dust container is a bit tricky; would've liked some more attachments, like a brush head

Great product


This is a great vacuum. 34min battery time at full power is awesome for this type of vacuum. Only takes 3.5 hours to charge battery. Amazing suction. Light weight. No more tussles with cords or hoses. I am thrilled with this purchase. It glides along...

Quiet, great suction, fantastic battery time, lightweight

No attachments for dust buster

Adequate for hard floors


It does not cope well with carpets, blocking easily & constantly needing emptied & so I had to buy another vaccum for carpets, however it does clean hard floors well enough

Nilfisk handy rechargeable handheld


It would be ok if you had a small area area to vacum something up. ie a pile of dust but I wanted it for our caravan. It didn't have strong suction & didn,t work very well. It wasn't cheap so I expected a better performance from this product.

No suction - Hair catches around rollers


Very unimpressed, no suction to speak of and, for this reason, i returned the product.

Handy "Handy"


The best thing about the Handy is that I dont have to plug-in and trail extensions around when I need to vac where there are no sockets. eg Bathrooms and stairs.
