Great Hoover, but mainly for its multi-functions
on 15 March 2011
I have read some reviews of this product and people rate it down for reasons that are kind of unjust.
This can't be compared to a standard hoover or vacuum cleaner, because it is not.
The hoover is quite large, light, and cylinder in shape. There is a set of wheels on the bottom which you attach and the whole device can be wheeled around the place while hoovering. It has a large on/off button which is easily seen and pressed. It has a long hose with many attachments and poles for it, aiding for both dry and wet usage.
I have mainly used this for normal usage, and it actually performs better than my existing vacuum cleaner. The suction is very powerful, and I didn't have to go over and place twice as it took everything first time. That for me is a huge plus.
The wheeling of the device works when it's close and no wires are in front of it...but sometimes it fell over as it is light and if the wheels get caught it topples over. But it can be managed so it doesn't do that.
So overall I am quite impressed with how it performed its function, only concerned about it toppling a few times.
I usually don't have anything that requires this, but managed to get a burst pipe in the house and the carpets were flooded, so thought it was a good chance to try this out. The bag inside needed to be removed, as it can only be used for the dry collection. The whole container of the hoover is a metal cylinder which is used to collect the water. It actually worked quite well, and removed a far chuck of water from the floor into the cylinder, which meant the carpet had a chance to dry out without being waterlogged.
Overall I did managed to do its function, but nothing a few towels couldn't soak up.
This hoover can blow leaves. I don't have any leaves in my garden so I didn't use this, and I'm not too keen on the idea of using a hoover outside on the grass or patio. But I tested it out on bits of paper, and it worked fine and was actually quite strong in how it blew them...I would say not too far off from a proper leaf blower.
For a multi-purpose hoover I would recommend it, but I find it hard to think of usages for the wet part of this hoover or even the leaf blowing part. But for what it is, it performed quite well, and if anyone is looking for just this, get it.
