this product is a waste of money. i had a different type of ewbank for years and it was great. it broke after 8 years so i had to buy another one.
i did lots of research and read lots of reviews - this one seemed to have good reviews. i thought because it was a ewbank brand, it'd be good, even if it was different to my original one. but no, this is a waste of money. it's rubbish. doesn't pick up dirt easily, you have to go over and over a bit of dirt on the carpet before it either picks it up, or leaves it on the carpet. also, to empty it, you have to press a button underneath the ewbank - but it's tricky to do and you end up with dirt all over your hands.
i'm gutted i bought this, wish i'd spend a little bit more and got something better - and something that actually works
