Perfect except for the battery failure

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

1.5 year old appliance, battery massively declined

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 one

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't Show details

Regret this purchase

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

Wish I could give it 0 stars

Bought about 6 months ago, and the battery stopped working at full vacuum about 2-3 months after purchase. I don't recommend buying this product. High price, doesn't last, low quality.

Get a Dyson Animal Ball wall powered instead. Show details

Huge fault

Aside from the well documented flimsy neck, the biggest deal breaker with this vacuum is that it dumps a pile of sandy debris when I turn it off. I've cleaned and emptied everything in it, but the problem remains. So now after vacuuming I have to keep it turned to max power, walk outside, and turn it off while still directing it over the garden. This is so it doesn't spit out mess into the just vacuumed house. A vacuum that creates mess. I'll give it to Bosch, they're innovators. Show details

Non-serviceable battery in a $600 vacuum?

Writing this on behalf of my mother in law who was widowed a year ago and does not do technology well.
The vacuum has worked well for 5 years but now it doesn't hold charge. Even after several hours charging it stops running after just a few minutes. Have read other reviews and it is very disappointing the battery is non-serviceable.
More disappointing is just 2 year warranty - this seems cynical knowing a battery has a finite life and it's terrible design to then make it non-replaceable. Show details

3.5 product, 5 stars for customer service

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! Show details ·  1

Bosch have problems

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. Show details

Worked well for a week or 2

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. Show details

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.

Same as above, my Bosch ZOO is the same. It lasts not even one minute. Absolute rubbish. Having read all the similar issues above it is something Bosch musty know about as a dud part. Can you advise?
