The length of the electric cord is a little on the short side. It could do with being another 2 or 3 meters in length meaning you don't have to keep unplugging and moving the vacuum cleaner around the house (obviously this depends on the size of your house). Of course, a longer electric cord means a bigger housing and therefore a slightly bigger cleaner. I also found that the electric cord repeatedly trapped itself in-between the wheels and the cleaner sides because the wheels are a bit like cheap nasty frisbees stuck on the sides and the cable just traps itself under the gap below the frisbee like wheels.
The brush handle extends (control to disengage the ratchet to allow it to slide in/out seems to work backwards ie. you're pulling the control button up and pushing the metal pipe in/out which is awkward while vacuuming, would be better if the control button pushed down to disengage the ratchet allowing the pipe extension to slide in/out) but the full extension is about 2 or 3 inches too short. That means you have to stoop slightly while vacuuming (depends on how tall you are) and because the brush head is 'clamped' to the carpet due to the incredible suction power, it means it's quite a workout just to vacuum the house with this cleaner! Not suitable for a pensioner!
It's not difficult to empty the contents, but it's not a simple click-button and all the dust falls out the bottom. You have to lift the collection box out of the cleaner, twist the lid part to the side to lift it off, put the now unattached lid down while you then lift off the spongy filter underneath the lid and place that down somewhere, and then you can tip the dust out if the collector box. Put the spongy filter back on top of the collector box, put the lid back on with the right alignment and twist it right/left to lock the lid back on and finally reinsert the dust collector box back onto the cleaner unit. Not difficult, just fiddly as the lid and filter are all separate bits which you need to set down on the floor while holding onto the collector box so you don't spill it.
A good vacuum cleaner with excellent suction power but needs a few areas redesigned to improve it.
UPDATE: After 6months of using this vacuum cleaner, i feel compelled to re-rate it and update my review in the negative. This vacuum is SUCH hard work - its nothing to do with the suction power (which, although not as good as it was when new, its still pretty good), but its to do with the design of the vacuum unit itself. The main issue is that the wheels stick out significantly on the left/right of the back end of the unit. This means as you drag it along and in/out of rooms it *constantly* gets itself wedged around the door frames and you have to back-up and free the unit before you can carry on cleaning. This doesnt seem like a big deal, but when it gets stuck almost every door and obstacle in the room it just becomes infuriating. And because the wheels are large and on the back end of the unit with the hose connection protruding from the *low* front end, whenever you give the Hoover a bit of a tug on the hose (probably because its become wedged around the end of the bed or doorframe) then the unit flips up onto its back wheels and often overturns onto its top. Its just really really annoying and irritating.
Also, i've noticed the the little wheels that the designers have placed on the back end of the main brush head (probably in an attempt to correct the fact the brush sticks so strongly to floors) actually make the issue worse because when you push the head forward, the little wheels work and the head shoots forward an inch or two, then the angle means the brush hits the carpet and the head stops and then the wheels kick-in, then the brush and so on and on. So, in effect, the brush is stop/go,stop/go,stop/go when pushing forward and this action is hard on the hands/arms - its just not a smooth vacuuming experience! And, a more minor complaint, i've found that the hose length is about 6inches shorter than it needs to be - it means you have to stoop more giving you back and neck pains!
In summary, the Hoover has good suction power, but the unit is so poorly designed from a 'human use' point of view that I would never buy one again (even with the good suction abilities). If you are aged over 60years then I really do recommend that you do NOT buy this Hoover - its WAY too much work for someone of elder years (which I am not yet!)
UPDATE2: After 1year of using this hoover, I've decided that it is SUCH hard work, I'm giving up on it. It's just too much effort pulling/pushing, re-righting it upright, fiddling with the dust box lid, plugging/unplugging because of the short cable etc etc etc. I've just 'had it' with struggling with the poor design of the unit and have opted to buy an upright 'Shark' vacuum instead. I **STRONGLY** recommend that you do not purchase this hoover if you are looking for a standard household cleaner - it's just not fit for this purpose.
I’ve only had the vacuum for about 8 weeks and the pet attachment has already broken and won’t work. I haven’t been able to get a replacement without sending the whole vacuum back.
If you have the air vent on the hose open to reduce the suction then the end of the hose keeps falling off.
The hose section is really short. I’m 5’1” and even at max extension it still feels quite short.
The compartment that collects the dirt is small so you need to keep emptying it and it’s actually quite difficult to empty. You need to try and turn the whole top section to release the lid. Anyone with limited movement in their hands would struggle, I don’t think my mother in law with arthritis would be able to loosen it at all.
The cable length isn’t very long so you don’t get far before you need to unplug and move sockets.
Overall I’m disappointed with the vacuum and certainly wouldn’t recommend it. I am swapping it with my caravan hoover as it will get used less there.
However, the pet brush is useless for the task at hand (Collie hair) and gets tangled in minutes. It’s a shame the pet hair brush tool couldn’t stand up to Collie hair but to be fair, I haven’t found one yet that can. So I just use the standard brush in combination with the other vacuums and it’s fine for that. The suction is pretty powerful for such a small machine and it’s performance on laminate and linoleum is great, on carpet and rugs average.
The cord is quite short and could do with being much longer for our home but as it’s light it isn’t a problem moving it around. The brush and stair attachments are handy for skirting boards, radiators and window sills, the cylinders and filters easy to access and clean, which is good because with these dogs and rural living it fills up pretty fast. It’s also not too loud, light enough to lift for ceilings and crevices and dinky enough for smaller storage cupboards. I saw in another review that the Hoover itself can get static and attract hairs. This does happen a little but I just vacuum them off!
So - if you want one stand alone pet vacuum cleaner that can do everything in a larger home that requires frequent heavier cleaning it’s not the one.
If, however - you DON’T have pets with fur and lighter cleaning to do in a smaller home it’s a nifty bit of kit that does the job, particularly on hard flooring.
- If you DO have pets that don’t moult very much and a small home it’s a good easy to handle machine that’s easy to look after and convenient to use, clean and store.
- If like us, you have heavier cleaning to do and much hairier pets it’s good as a fast and easy back up for weekly maintenance cleaning in conjunction with a meaner machine for regular deep cleans.
