Top Value for SEBO Vacuum Dust Bags!
on 19 July 2009
This is where the ownership of a SEBO vacuum cleaner over brands like Miele or Hoover makes a lot more sense. Instead of offering 4 or 5 dust bags for the cost price, SEBO offer 10 dust bags for a keen price - but be careful because these 10 bags in a "Filterbox" are running out since SEBO have changed the paper dust bag material to a synthetic disposable dust bag that offers 10 to 15% more fill capacity and a far longer dust fill capacity and goes under the same model number which must be confusing for Amazon pickers.
The 10 box relates to brown three layer microfilter filtration dust bags that have been sold with SEBO since they came to the UK in the 1980s and all of the dust bags have optional seal caps that seal up the dust once and for all.
When I bought these bags from Amazon UK I expected the 8 synthetic dust bags for the cost price. However, I got the 10 brown dust bags and after contacting Amazon UK they sent out the proper purchase specified. They also allowed me to keep the 10 brown paper dust bags giving me an added year and a half to what I normally find anyway with one box of these bags for my SEBO X1.
Oh yes, let it not be said that these bags are genuine and fill very easily. They don't rip when in use with the vacuum cleaner and they are long lasting, with one bag able to last up to to 4 months at the very most and when it comes out of my vacuum, the dust bag weighs nearly a kilogram of dirt alone! Hence why a lot of owners find that these bags are great value and cost effective.
I find the newer synthetic dust bags tend to last up to 5 months EACH - and with either dust bag style offering so many in the box, you should get a decent run out of one box that can last a minimum of a year to 4 years dependent on the kind of dust and dirt in your home. Top value here! Thanks for reading. (C)NR2 2014.
