I have very mixed feelings about this hoover. Firstly I must confess I have a hairy house.Yes, thats right with 4 "lovely" cats it is very hairy- despite my best efforts. So really when I hear the words "pet cleaner " I am desperately attracted and sucked in. In some ways this hoover lived up to what it promised in others it didnt.I will let you decide. Firstily it arrives in a small box and you buld it up.The instructions are not very clear and you will need a star screwdriver.I deduct marks for the fact it does not give you a list of items contained, so you have to try to figure it out yourself.However it did only take about 15 minutes and a minor argument.
GOOD POINTS - Has good,powerful suction- which DOES lift hairs Clear bag that lifts out & is easy to see how full it is. Neat & compact -with all attachments stored on it. 3 attachments for closer cleaning- including a very good short brush Has a "high carpet", "medium carpet" and "low carpet" setting- with the turn of a knob. Leaves even beige carpets well cleaned
BAD POINTS - Handle is uncomfortable ,especailly after long use ( especailly if you have weak wrists or have fatigue ) Difficult to clean stairs as attachment will only go half way up. Short cable- means you need to constantily unplug and replug . REALLY noisy - gives a huge sonic squeel reminds me of the airport I used to stay beside.which for pets must be deafing- mine hide at the best of times. Definately something they should consider for a " pet hoover ".This is because of the " air " power. I found it was too heavy & bulky as I have arthritis & feel weak.Although it is lighter at the "low carpet " setting it then doesnt clean as well. Is not suitable for laminate/vinyl/ tile/wooden flooring. Although you could use the " low carpet " setting for laminate /vinyl I did not feel comfort with this.After working in flooring for 20 years I felt it was too abbrasive and they do warn you it is not suitable for these types of floors.I personally like one hoover that I can use on all my flooring.
Overall it does give a great ,clean & hairfree finish. I suppose it depends on how you feel about the pro's and con's of this hoover if this is suitable for your needs.Sadily it misses the mark for mine .
