Panasonic MC-UL712


A great lightweight cleaner ideal for smaller homes

Lightweight and maneuverable ; Excellent clean on carpet and hard floors ; Low power consumption ; Handy quick draw crevice tool

Not great for stairs ; Rather unstable when wand removed ; Small dust container

The MC-UL712 is a great lightweight cleaner and ideal for smaller homes or perhaps as a secondary cleaner for quick clean-ups or to be left upstairs. It works well for pet-hairs and the tools are all handy additions. The bin emptying is very easy...

Poorer than poor


I am surprised that this is still on sale in JL as it is a store that I equate with a qualityservice. It would have no stars if that were possible. As others have mentioned, it clogs very quickly and filter required cleaning after each use. My vacuum...

Not fit for purpose


I bought this hoover a year and a half ago. I had been assured it would be suitable for a home with pets in it. I have had nothing but trouble since bringing it home. I found it clogged very easily and would not pick up anything from my carpets. The...

Don't buy Panasonic


I bought the earlier MC UL710 model from the now defunct Comet in August 2012 and was given what Panasonic said was a 6 year parts & labour guarantee. It proved to be worthless.Despite little use the beater bar broke up in about a year & when I tried...

Awful cleaner


Returned our Panasonic for exchange this evening for the second time and finally gave in and bought another product. First time the suction at the base stopped and we could only vacuum through the handle, manufacturers took it away for repair and 2...

Beater bar broke after 4 months - not covered on warranty


This hoover is just over 4 months old, during NORMAL USE, the beater bar containing the brush at the front of the machine broke. I telephoned Panasonic customer care team, told this was an ACCESSORY and would have to purchase...ridiculous, an accessory...
