Vacuum cleaners

I was glamoured by Vax ads a couple of years ago and now I have to tolerate a bloody awful vax cordless until it decides to die and I can get something that does what it is supposed to do. Also re Dyson, their cordless was awful when I bought one, returned so I could get a much more awful Vax, but the corded animal was excellent.

DO. NOT. BUY. A, CORDLESS. VACUUM. CLEANER

is my advice. A corded will last you so much longer and perform better too

 

Might end up getting both.

Numatic were simple, robust and you could get spares. We had one of the bigger ones at work and it was cool.

That was 20 years ago, and I'm not an expert. Got a Which? subscription these days ;)

They are still made in Britain, which is pretty cool.

Mike, are you trying to send me into another 8 year exile?

It's ok @Rugeley Villawill be along to tell us the technique to stick the vacuum nozzle up your arse for a quick thrill soon and all will be right with the world

Get a tradies Titan from Screwfix. 

Very cheap and could suck the skin of a banana.

Not great looking and they need a paper bag...but **** me it cleans the floor well!

I always wondered about the nostalgia that comes with a Henry.

Loud, heavy, bulky, hits all furniture and all door frames. Runs over small pets, toes.

But I guess it's got a funny face.

The one thing I have always wondered about Dyson vacuum cleaners, is how much of the satisfaction of using them, is due to the fact that you can see how much stuff you've sucked up?

Seeing all the fluff, hair and detritus, just has to unduce a satisfying feeling of virtue!

That's the best bit about it. Sucking up spiders is also satisfactory.

This. I had an admittedly pathetic cordless Dyson (boys and their gadgets eh ?) but I still laughed at my missus's stupid Henry with its ridiculous smiley face on it.

Then I used it. Oh how wrong I was to scoff. Beast of a machine.

Had a Dyson and was grateful when it eventually broke beyond being glued back together one more time.

Bought a Henry.

Embarrassed by how good it was in comparison and that I’d been suckered in to presuming ‘reassuringly expensive’ was a real thing in plastic vacuums.
