can anyone recommend a decent vacuum cleaner (cylinder one)? Do you
know any useful and recent test/comparison made by some consumers
association reporting the best buy ?
Thanks for your suggestions!
for Italy's version of our 'consumer
Products recommended in a UK group (or misc.consumers.frugal-living
where a broom would be suggested ) would not necessarily be
distributed in your country.
FWIW, the 'henry' from Numatic has a good following here.
Regardless of what Which might say, Henry is the best selling vac in the UK
comercial cleaning market by a huge margin. Cleaning contractors don't ask
for 'vacuums' or 'hoovers' they ask for 'Henrys'. Daily office cleaning is
the toughest sector of the small dry vac market and the Numatic Henry &
varients have totaly dominated it for the last 20 years.
Every major multi national manufacturer in the world has tried to better
Henry & pals and failed miserably.
There is a very good reason for this........
But what is that? Is it really beyond the wit of vacuum cleaner
designers to take one of the cheaper products on the market and make
something comparably good? Yet no-one seems capable of it. Henry isn't
earth-shatteringly good in some peculiar manner, but no other maker
seems to get anywhere close to it. Dyson charge an arm and a leg, but
they can't even make a reliable mains flex!
Mind you, I'd spend the few extra quid and get the even better
steel-cased Henry instead, the NVQ250 (they ought to call it "Ron")
I don't think that's true - the latest report seems to be April
which doesn't have such a rating for Henry. Do you have a reference?
Although it has to be said there is a design fault somewhere in the
machine which stops the reduced power setting from working properly
after a (short) time.
You can buy robotic vacuum cleaners that are self learning and do it for
you. The newer models can be set to clean on certain days and automatically
go back to the base station for recharging when they need to. The lazy
bastards do not do stairs though, you have to leave that to the wife.
