Not that great


Bought this vacuum because of the motor power 1600w it cleans good, but there is no extention pipe to clean under sofas. The flexi pipe is too short and the extention tool for dusting is too short. It should have a longer extention. Can't clean the...

very efficient!


i previously had the cylinder version and this is much better suction, lightweight and easy to move around. the only thing is it is so light it topples over when using the hose on stairs etc. but i still would recommend this vaccum cleaner.

very light


had this vacuum a few weeks to replace old vax. surprised how light it is, yet still powerful for the job. Gave it a good rating, but could be improved with longer hose attachment (as old vax) whereby you do not have to stoop for floor use. Also falls...

This hoover isn't very well made, it falls over very easily as the locking feature is not strong enough. The nozzle is quite long but again you have to hold the hoover to stop it falling down as its very flimsy. Fantastic suction on it, BUT the out...
