I guess it depends what you consider "heavy". We don't find it a problem
The Sebo self-adjusts its height to adapt to the type of floor / carpet,
thus the rotating brush is able to do its job effectively, and the suction
is not wasted "around the edges". This means it's heavier to push than if
it was floating around aimlessly in mid-air.
Presumably, you tried it "switched on" and also allowed a few seconds for
the height to adjust itself?
My wife always complained about the Dyson.
Our Dyson a DC07 weighed 8.7Kg, the Sebo a SEBO X4 Xtra weighs 7.4Kg, so it
is a little lighter.
The Electrolux Z2250B a 'lightweight' cleaner weighs 5.9Kg, so that gives an
idea about weights in general.
Weight is not something that's commented on anymore. Best thing is to go to
a shop a see for yourself. We bought the Sebo because of it's excellent
reputation and haven't regretted it (it wasn't exactly a cheap option),
though weight wasn't the primary issue. Ours came from a John Lewis store
and we had plenty of time to check out their range there.
