Fantastic vacuum cleanerAthlet BCH6AT25AU (White)
Purchased the Bosch cordless vacuum from The Good Guys for $199. It has 3 speeds & transitions well from tiles onto carpet without a change in the dials. The battery life is quite long compared to other makes & brands. The machine is relatively lite in weight & moving it around into tight spaces is easy. It's bagless which is cost effective & has washable filters that can also be replaced after heavy use. Charging from zero to full does take a few hours, this is the only down fall I've found since purchasing it.Show details
I love this stick vacuumAthlet BCH6AT25AU (White)
It is so light and has fantastic suction on both tiles and carpet wouldn’t buy anything elseShow details
Buyer beware. Don't bother buying.Athlet BCH6AT25AU (White)
Rubbish, please don't bother buying this product. Doesn't hold charge for very long. Replacement batteries are mire expensive than the unit itself. Bosch are not what they used to be. Will not buy another Bisch product again.Show details
Joke of a machine and so is the customer serviceAthlet BCH65MSKAU (Silver)
useless customer service
KIE-RAN from customer service in NZ is super unhelpful and so is BOSCH. I thought it was Bosch so must be good only to be told they don't have parts for my vacuum after 2.5 years. cant supply parts to general public.
They want me to send my machine into their service center to replace a battery ffs. I can do it but no I have to pay someone from their service team to do it as they are Bosch appliances trained. I hope they have Bosch appliance trained employees sitting in china too where they get manufact
Perfect except for the battery failureAthlet ProAnimal BCH6ZOOAU
Have a Bosch ZOO'O 25.2V Lithium Power Pro-Animal Brush vacuum cleaner. It has been brilliant but then suddenly the battery is only lasting about 5 minutes on high speed which is the speed needed for the picking up of dog hair. Can the battery be replaced or is this for the dump now? Such a shame to throw it away and all the extras we have to go with it.Show details
Battery lIfe POOR.Athlet BCH6AT25AU (White)
I have owned this vacuum for three years now. In almost every respect this is a well designed product. Nevertheless, the lithium batteries have started to die. I was quite happy to replace them but found out that this is next to impossible which means an otherwise perfect appliance needs to go to landfill!!
I amoungst many others detest this needless waste. BOSCH makes quality products, so I am disappointed that they don't stand behind the products they sell. I tried to ring them but found their Australian number had benn disconnected?? I think this shows contempt for their customers, so I will never purchase a Bosch product again.
Don’t buy this junkAthlet BCH6AT25AU (White)
I’ve had 2 Bosch Athlet Stick vacuums and both batteries have failed to charge just out of warranty and the batteries are not user replaceable, I would never recommend this product, in fact I am dubious about recommending any Bosch product after continuous problems with other Bosch appliances, Bosch was a reliable product many years ago however these days the quality has taken a dive and now it’s temporary trash like most other brands.
Battery lasted only 4 years !Athlet BCH6AT25AU (White)
The battery will last only one minute of vacuuming after charging - for a vacuum that is only 4 years old. There is no way the user can change over the battery - it's fully sealed in.Show details
1.5 year old appliance, battery massively declinedAthlet ProAnimal BCH6ZOOAU
Same issue as everyone else on this thread. Vacuum cannot be run in turbo mode without the machine switching off after a couple of minutes. It runs on the lower settings which no longer provide enough suction to clean carpet properly. Should have stayed with Dyson! At nearly $400 this was a bad buy and clearly a dud product.Show details
Don't buy oneAthlet ProAnimal BCH6ZOOAU
We have owned this for less than two years. The suction is MAGIC and I was so impressed with it I raved when I first bought it. Now... Battery dies even on the lower settings within minutes. I'm extremely upset with this product and I've read the battery is irreplaceable unless you spend hundreds of $$ on it. NOT WORTH THE SPEND don't go there I wish I hadn'tShow details
Non-Replaceable Battery - Bosch Quote Over $500!Athlet ProAnimal BCH6ZOOAU
I purchased this vacuum in early 2019 from Harvey Norman. Over the years the battery has degraded to the point of only lasting a few mins (or a number of seconds on the highest suction). I contacted Bosch who informed me that the battery is not user replaceable and the cost for them to service it would be over $500! That's more than I paid for the vacuum in the first place, totally unreasonable. The customer service representative in spare parts said "it's cheaper for you to buy a new one"
Bosch are selling products with batteries that they kn... Read moreow degrade (as all batteries do over time) and telling customers it is "infeasible" to repair at their exorbitant costs, directing consumers to instead purchase a new unit (after only 4 years or less of use). This is simply unacceptable, repairs should be available for key components at a reasonable cost and for a reasonable period of time. The vacuum also does not work when plugged in whatsoever, so you can't even use it corded as a backup for when the battery dies. For a product to be a throw away item due to only 1 key component required for it to work failing is not okay. Other vacuum manufacturers (i.e. Dyson) allow battery replacements at significantly lower (and reasonable) costs Do not buy a Bosch cordless vacuum EVER
trash, battery dies within a few mins - worthlessAthlet BCH6AT25AU (White)
had for nearly 2 years, started off with a battery life of about 15 to 20 mins on high used on floorboards and occasionally carpet. now barely lasts 2 minutes after a full overnight charge. have cleaned and maintained it, the battery is just trash.
for the price i paid 2 years ago, its pretty disappointing! dont waste your money!
If I could give it less I wouldAthlet BCH6AT25AU (White)
Two years out of a Bosh stick vacuum purchased from Havey Norman only to find it is impossible to buy a replacement battery. Sorry, I found one supplier on the internet an Australian company and this is from their website. 12027242 BOSCH STICK VAC BATTERY ASSY 25.2V *PLEASE CONTACT STATEWIDE PRIOR TO ORDER Part Number: 12027242 $574.95
No more Bosh products for me.
Love my BoschAthlet BCH6AT25AU (White)
This is my 2nd Bosch Vacuum cleaner. I love how its solid & not flimsy. Have had this particular one for 2 years, my only frustration is the battery is now only lasting 7minutes when fully charged!Show details
Regret this purchase.Athlet ProAnimal BCH6ZOOAU
Our Bosch BCH6ZOOAU is a great disappointment. My wife finds it heavy and hard to push across carpets and rugs. She has given up using it. I can push it across rugs and carpets but the pressure seems to push the power head down rather than forward. For hard floors the price is overkill.Show details
Questions & Answers
My Bosch Zoo Vacuum Cleaner is not holding a charge and the manual tells me that the battery can only be replaced by a qualified Bosch service agent. I am in the Lake Macquarie area, NSW. Where is my nearest service agent? Greg at [Email Address Removed]
I really like the vacuum but am very disappointed that the part where the hand joins it has cracked in the plastic. So I'm not able to use it. It's the first time I have spent so much on a vacuum.
Why is vacuum not holding charge it’s only 2 year old I have already had to replace head as brushes stopped turning now battery not holding charge
Hi Mel. My one is similar as the charge is holding less and less as time goes by and mine is less than 2 yrs old. After reading other reviews it seems this is a Common problem with these models ):
