Can't handle grit.
on 9 May 2012
Overall, a very nice machine. Small, light, good battery life, ok suction, looks nice. However, as noted by another reviewer, it seems incapable of picking up grit. It picks it up fine, I wait for a while or carry on hoovering, then when I turn it off it spits all the grit back out all over the floor. I've tried to pick up the same small pile of grit 5 times but it just gets deposited whenever I turn it off. Must be some badly designed aerodynamics in the tube where it's getting caught up and won't get into the storage compartment. The time saved by not having to plug a large hoover in is completely cancelled out by having to keep hoovering the same dirt over and over, and make tactical turn offs aimed at the bin.
Doesn't do it's intended purpose, clean the floor...it just moves the dirt around.
