Thanks

Same as us

I use one of these:- Vax H90-GA-B Gator Handheld Vacuum Cleaner :(

 

I think its useless. Doesn't hold its charge so can only do one caravan carpet per charge.

We have got one like these. Can't be doing with ineffective battery operated vacuums that mean you have to get down on your knees. In fact we have got two, one for home. If you look you get them cheaper.

 

One here cheaper

We have one of the base models at home for a few years now and they are good. All the bits can be replaced and British too

I would love to be in a position to harness the hate that would be generated giving such a 'gift' for valentines day - power a small town for years. .. ;)

 

 

I've got one of the old DC10 Car & Boat Dysons - newer models look similar. It comes highly recommended. I clean-up everyday with it. Excellent build quality, amazing suction for such a small device. I would recommend getting a second battery* if you're planning a big clean.

 

*get a third party one, far more power than dyson's own, imho, and significantly cheaper.

We got a little Bissel one, you can use it as a little Dust Buster type or as an upright. It's so good and light that we've started using it around the house.

Argos do them for £59. 99 http://www. argos. co. uk/static/Product/partNumber/8551032. htm but we got ours in Tesco just after Christmas for £25 - an absolute bargain.

My cordless handheld Dyson does a good job. Don't know how long the charge lasts as I am generally done in less than 5 minutes.

 

Had the Dyson for many years and have had my monies worth from it. I used to have a mini vac with a bag, it looked like bagpipes and was about as good at hoovering.

 

I take my carpets out for continental touring and go back to my witchy broom. Can't be bothered hoovering in 30 degrees.

Oh dear; we have a Dyson too. It was expensive but it does do the job beautifully. Sounds as though jonbev has a knackered battery.

Enjoy every minute of every day. It doesn't last nearly as long as you'd like, and there's no guarantee of coming this way again.

The specs only give it 6 minutes, which for what it is designed to do (cars, boats, 'vans etc) is plenty imho. Though I must admit, the third party battery I bought off Amazon is significantly more powerful, lasts about eight minutes and was a lot cheaper than the Dyson brand spare battery. I would encourage you to invest is a new battery.

Hi timanita, Just bought the dyson dc59, did have a chilli mini upright but it just wasn't good enough, as a fellow OES owner I can highly recommend the dyson!

 

The motorised floor tool really picks up the dog hair very well and the battery life on the new model is a lot better than the older ones.

 

Currys have got a 30 day take it back if you don't like it offer on until the end of feb.

We bought a Panasonic for the house last September because we didn't want a Dyson. It lasted 3 uses before the belt broke and the brush fell off. Took it back to Currys who said that the part would be sent to us at home by Panasonic. I told them that the belt was broken but nobody took any notice. The part arrived and I fitted but of course it didn't work. Took it back to Currys who then wrote it off.

We are not Dyson fans as the first one we had ended up at the tip because bits fell off. There is now very little choice in vacuums as Dyson seem to have cornered the market. Chose a small lightweight one which seems to work and was £70 more.

We have used it twice and does the job but like all the ones I saw they are not very robost. We will see how long this last before bits drop off!!!

At that time in the morning all the women were doing the vacuuming not playing on a computer like the men :D

 

I can't remember what ours is but it came from Lakeland and is pretty useless. :D

Our Dyson handheld's battery last 15 minutes without the "Animal" pet hair motorised brush or 13 minutes with it fitted.

Agreed. it's a crawl around on hands and knees to do the caravan \ stair carpets but does work very well at collecting the sprollie hair.

 

Previously tried VAX, Hoover and Dirt Devil handhelds but none anywhere near as good.

 

Amazing what you can learn if you do manage to get the wife to talk (sociably for a minute) to you! ;):P:ph34r:
