3.5 product, 5 stars for customer service

published

Good vacuum used for carpet and floorboards. Have had for 2 and a bit years. Roller on the head piece stopped spinning ($160 to replace). Dealt with parts department and customer service @ Bosch. Parts department were friendly, and customer service woman (Jan?) was absolutely outstanding. Resolved the issue for me. I don't know what the lifetime expectancy of vacuums is these days, but 2 years (4 months) seems short... so from a product perspective, 3 stars, and from a resolution and service perspective - flawless. Thank you!

Charge lasts 20mins

published

The vacuum on full charge lasts about 20 mins in my one bedroom flat. For longer cleans it just doesn't cut it. The suction is great when its charged. I only purchased it 6 months ago. For a $300 vacuum I would have expected a bit more. You also need to buy the attachments for an extra charge of around $70. As the vacuum doesn't fit under furniture due to the motor and cylinder being at the bottom of the vacuum it makes it a pain to try use the extra attachments. Very disappointed.

Purchased in for $300.

Bosch have problems.

published

The vacuum has some minor issues which personal attention can rectify. What is of major issue is the inability of the Company to honour what was offered on the purchase of this product. The Company has been contacted by me on many occasions regarding this issue with no resolution. It may be that the company is experiencing some serious problems.

Worked well for a week or 2

published

Used on carpet and tiles.
Pet hair got caught in the head and barrel after every use. Would spend more time trying to clear the vacuum than anything else. Terrible, don't buy.

Throw away once battery is gone

Bought new for $259 and had it for 2 years. Then battery would not retrain charge for more than 5-6 minutes. Rang Bosch. First told that battery can't be replaced and later that it would cost $212 plus postage.

Purchased for $259.

Only lasts 1 year

published

This is our second vacuum cleaner. First one experienced exact same issues. After a year suction power is none existent as well as battery life. Turbo mode lasts all of 2 minutes and second mode has hardly enough suction to suck sand up. Would not waste time and money on this appliance.

Irreplaceable Battery??

published

We bought the Bosch Athlet from Harvey Norman in the late 2016 and have used it on carpet, tile and timber flooring. Thought it was fabulous product for the first year or two!! The use on carpet is a bit hard going, but given the vacuum is only for spot cleaning, I could put up with the exertion. Like many other reviewers on this site, the battery has slowly given up and now, the vacuum will only last for 3-5 minutes on a full charge. After contacting Bosch, I was provided with a new charger, but this was no help. I was happy to buy a new battery, but was told this really wasn't an option. Wish I had of known that when I was shopping for a new vac!! Don't bother with this product.

Purchased in at Harvey Norman.

This is a well built and great performing vac

published

We purchased this vac from Harvey Normans about 4 years ago. It runs perfectly, sucks up dirt and grime like you would not believe and has performed without a hitch. Because we live in a 2 storied house my wife purchased a top line Dyson 2 years ago - one for each floor. The Dyson cost twice as much as the Bosch and, while another great Dyson product, it is not really any better than the Bosch. The major difference is that the Dyson motor and dust collection are up at the top so you have to carry that weight. The Bosch has all the weight lower down and so it is not heavy in the same sense that the Dyson is.
Both good products but always consider this Bosch. It is a great and reliable machine.

Athlet ProAnimal BCH6ZOOAU

I am really disappointed. We bought this vacuum cleaner 2-3 years ago, and the battery time has declined quickly. A couple of months ago it stopped working altogether.

To pay this much money for a product that only lasts a couple of years doesn’t feel that great. And not very sustainable either to have to buy a completelt new product when there is only something wrong with the battery.

I live in Sweden, so don’t know who to contact. Any help?
