Have been looking on the internet to buy a Henry and see that the 200P (200
Plus) is some £20 dearer than the HVR200. Despite extensive Googling
however, and a visit to the Numatic site, I'm no wiser about what you get
for the extra money. I suspect it's something to do with extra filtering but
would be grateful for any enlightenment.
It simply has the finer version of the filter (forget the technical
name) that is good for asthmatics, etc. You can buy that filter
separately for about 25 quid if you ever want to 'upgrade'.
ISTR I asked Numatic about this a while ago - or someone here did. I
can't remember if it was me - at my age I have a few bad sectors!
Many thanks Bob - that confirms what I suspected! I am only too aware of,
and sympathise with, all symptoms of 'increasing maturity'. Take care;

Hmm, thats not my experience with Henry at all. The only noticable drop-off
in suction occurs when the bag is getting very full. Incidentally, I fail
to see how even a cyclone cleaner such as a dyson can advertise no loss of
suction ever. Surely when the collector is full it is full, and suction
_must_ drop off?
Even with a three-quarters full bag my missus managed to suck up one of my
thick walking socks with Henry before she noticed what was happening...
Also shredded some old voile curtains when they got sucked up by a negligent
You sure that henry's filter is properly set up such that the plastic insert
is the correct way up and retained by the elastic straps provided? Suction
was adversely affected when I forgot to put the insert in there once.
