Rated 5 out of 5Â by Wayne0x Excellent Vac missing features
This is an outstanding vac. I've only used it as a dry vac, but have used it without worry on minor spils after towelling up to get the dampness out of carpet.
Now for the pros:
Excellent suction, Bag catches plenty of dust.
The wife was amazed at how much cleaner the carpets seam (the old vac's pumped loads of dust out the back etc).
Negatives: but bear in mind the PRICE IS EXCELLENT STILL.
* Flimsy plastic pipes, with a single foot
(I swapped out our old vac pipe onto the fitting, so we have extension tube)
* NO CORD REEL.
* have to put wheels on yourself.
The wife actually moaned that this vac was too powerful (it was lifting the carpet as she vacced. But this was solved when swapped out the tubes so she can open the little air intake thing.
There are no brush feet supplied (but standard size tube means many brands will fit)
Other than the usual niggles, I highly rate this vacume for what its meant to do. It does an outstanding job for a good price.
For myself, after fixing a few issues (ie: tubes) the only major downfall is the price of the bags from screwfix. They are quite high priced - and only come in packs of five. I found a suitable replacement at an online vender for far cheaper, and they seems higher quality than the *one* supplied (which was full within a day)

Rated 5 out of 5Â by slimyeti Great Value, very light.
The flimsy plastic attachments betray the low price, but in every other way this is a great little cleaner. Very light, powerful suction and easy to pull round on it's castors. Very useful to be able to blow through the hose to clear obstructions.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by DanDaggers It sucks and it blows
Got this as it was a easier alternative than ripping apart my car, as I purchased this for sucking and blowing out my drainage pipes.
It also made cleaning out the in car swimming pool caused from blocked drainage a doddle.
The hose that comes supplied with this vac is very flimsy, but it dose the job.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by TTgirl Great no frills vacuum :-)
I ordered this as a vacuum cleaner for outside jobs (cleaning out the garage, car etc). It's a great little vacuum, similar in size to Henry but much lighter, so it moves around more easily. I really like it. The suction is very strong. I tried it out on my carpets in the house and due to the powerful suction, the floor attachment was quite difficult to move, so I fitted a standard cleaning head; the type that you can flick the tabs for hard floor or carpets. This made the vacuum easier to use indoors for domestic cleaning, if that's what you want to use it for. If you read the negative reviews about fine dust, such as brick dust, being blown out of the motor exhaust, those dopey people obviously didn't realise that you need to buy the standard filter to replace the basic foam filter. The standard filter blocks finer dust from entering the motor, so solves that situation, and I expect will give the motor longer life too. All in all, you can't expect this vacuum cleaner to match the build quality of Miele but for the price it's excellent. It's basic, sturdy and designed for industry rather than domestic, yet, as I mentioned, change the floor head if you want to use it in the house and get the standard filter for fine dust. Also, some people have commented that the vacuum volume is loud. I compared it next to Henry and it's slightly louder but not so much that it would bother me.
I purchased the 16L dust bags and they're fine with this.
Others have complained that this vacuum does not have auto cord rewind but there are grooves at the sides above the locking clasps which help keep the cable wrapped around the machine.
Granted, there are only 2 suction tools including a crevice pipe, but what do you expect for Â£35? This is nothing to moan about, as this little machine sucks up liquids with auto safety shut off and it can also be used as a blower, to gather together debris or, for those so inclined, to dry off your car wash quickly.
I have no complaints.
My daughter and friends needed a vacuum cleaner for their student home so they also ordered one of these.
She thinks it's an absolute bargain.
All in all, this vacuum cleaner is a good little work horse.
