Excellent vacuum, 25 April 2010
This is the best vacuum cleaner I have ever bought. I initially bought the same model to use in my business and was so impressed I bought one for home when my Panasonic bagless gave up the ghost.
Don't be put off by the fact that the Sebo requires a bag. Quite frankly the assertion that bagless vacuums perform better is bunkum. Not only is the suction no better, but when you empty the cylinder, you usually get a face full of dust as the wind inexplicably changes direction just as you empty it into the bin!! No such problems exist with the Sebo: just take the bag out (which incidentally takes ages to register as full even when the cleaner is used every day) and bin it.
I can see only two very slight drawbacks to the Sebo but these are a result of its strengths. First, it is quite heavy and might be a little difficult for some people to manoeuvre (but this is because of its powerful motor). Second, the suction is so strong that the machine sometimes tips over when using the hose attachment.
I cannot praise this brand highly enough. It's pricey but well worth the investment.
