Doesn't live up to the hype
on 6 November 2016
I bought this so that I could hoover our stairs etc more easily than with our Argos Hoover, and hoped it would make it much quicker and require less effort.
I'm a bit disappointed with it, having used it just once so far:
- it's heavier than it looks and hurts your hand after a while
- power cord could do with being longer - got half way down stairs and had to change sockets (would be even better if cordless!)
- the attachments are so tricky to get in and out. It was only through a q&a above that I managed to get the tool adapter out - thank you to the person who said to push down as you pull!
- after doing only half the stairs the red indicator came on to say it needed emptying. It wasn't full up and the filters weren't particularly blocked but I emptied it anyway - indicator was still on when I started to use it again
- the floor head is a bit useless given that the suction hole is tiny and doesn't go the full width of the head
-instructions could be more detailed!
On the plus side
- it does have good suction and will be handy for getting into tighter spaces.
- the blower tool will be useful
I think I would have been better off paying more for something lighter and cordless but the reviews made this sound like it was really good!
