Vacuum Cleaners Buying Guide
Our buying guide will explain which type of vacuum cleaner would suit you most, how much you can expect to pay for one, and which features are worth looking out for.
Nothing like advertised
I have had 3 of the older type red swivel sweeper and they were fantastic. As for the new type it is dreadful. Battery does not last more than three minutes, does not pick up well and flicks pieces of dirt all over the place. As for working on carpet - hopeless. My old ones worked well on short haired mats this one does nothing except lose battery power. I am very very disappointed with this product. Give me back the old red one any day.
Purchased in June 2019 for $49.00.
Only used 3 times, Batteries dead or won't charge, great idea though.
Used 3 time only on immaculate polished tilled floors and it moved easily at first, I thought it great.
Then the "Super Sliders" as they're called on the box (white plastic caps on the base of the sweeper in all 4 corners) to make it "Glide effortlessly on all floor surfaces"(Reference from Packaging of the - Cordless Swivel Sweeper G2 , As seen on TV , Danoz) began to SCRAPE the Tiles, and brushes labouring like they were to close to the floor, then nothing......It would switch off. Tried leaving it on charge, it would buzz for seconds then die. Gave up and would urge danoz to send a replacement for the false and misleading information on the packaging and marketing of its features. I was looking forward to trying this and will patiently wait for my complimentary feedback and replacement sweeper from danoz, as I think they'll do the right thing by me as a customer. Thanks
Purchased in October 2018.
Life if battery non existant
Bought the first one through Big W. Battery dies after 1 month of use. Got my money back. Bought one via Danoz, gave one to my mum. Really embarrassed when hers stopped working and then mine stopped working. Waste of money. Sticking with my vacuum cleaner..
What a waste of money.
Don't waste your money . Battery will not hold a charge . Just sitting in the cupboard can't remember who I got it from . Would have been better off getting a stick vaccum . Charge it for hours and it will only vaccum for 4 minutes . Never again
It is Handy for a couple of things only.
Can not recommend it for hard floor sweeping as the compartment does not securely hold what you are sweeping up. It's a motorised broom only. If you have a lot of human hair around it will tangle around the brushes terribly and will stop brushes rotating and the advertising is not honest, the hair does not just pull off easily..it's a fight! And there are two large and two teeny brushes to remove for cleaning, very awkward. The one and only thing I use it for is for picking up annoying bits of fluff etc on carpets in between vacuuming.
Very disappointed. False advertising must be a camera trick on tv it won’t even pick up
Very disappointed. False advertising must be a party trick. Doesn’t even pick up a granule of bird seed just pushes it along the floor. I won’t be buying anything of tv again. Plus you say it’s quiet it is just about as loud as a vacuum cleaner. Waste of money.
Best little helper ever
I absolutely love my swivel sweeper max . Makes life easy. I use it every day. I bought 2 gave one away. Then accidentally bought Walter sweeper CHEAPER BUT NO WHERE NEAR AS GOOD AS THE ORIGINAL swivel sweeper. I have just ordered 2 more for friends. Cannot recommend more highly. Do be aware though to only charge battery for 8 hours as per instructions. I have two batteries so i won't be caught out half way through a job. I hope they never go off the market JUST LOVE IT debba953
Great but incredibly brittle
I loved it at first. Was great for Lino and even carpet. Was picking up heaps of grit and mess.
But my husband was putting it away and it fell off the hook and broke into pieces.
Was really disappointed I thought it would of been more sturdy than it was.
Waste of money
It clogs up quickly with animal hair. Spend more time picking it off the brushes than actual cleaning with it. I paid for the two deal, but, each of them had a packing charge so the company makes money this way. The battery for the second one was dead and unusable so the unused item was useless. I contacted the company and could have got another battery if I paid for it.
A terrible and wasteful product.
I purchased this thinking it would be even better than the original one I had a few years back but boy was I wrong. It spits everything everywhere and if it does pick simething up it will shoot it back out a minute later. I have called danoz and they told me to turn the brushes around but it made no difference. They also said to take it back to Big W so I did 5 days later (which is a 45 minute drive) to be told they cant refund or exchanged as it had been used. I did everything danoz told me to do including sending thru copies of my reciept on the first phone call and had no reply for danoz. My sweeper just sits in my cupboard. Waste of $59.99
Only worked well for a few months
Bought this for my elderly mother, after only a few months it completely stopped working. We thought it was the battery and contacted the vendor who sent one, unfortunately this did not fix the issue the Swivel Sweeper remains dead. We have since contacted the vendor again and they have informed us that Danoz refuse to refund or further investigate the issue as they've already sent a battery. Would not recommend using the product or Danoz.
To begin with I loved this quick way to wipe up small messes without having to get out the big vacuum.
But one day the stick broke and now although it works still and does its job I have to bend down to the broken component to do the job.
I found the stick too flimsy and trying to repair it with super glue etc it broke promptly when used.
would buy this again if it had a thicker stick.
Not worth the money
I just received mine and it's not worth unpacking! It does not pick up anything on tile or floor boards and to send them back will cost just as much! So save your money use a broom or just pull out the vacuum. My grandson thought he would use it after spilling crumbs from a cake onto the tile floor guess what the swivel sweeper was useless and the good old vacuum came out,
Fabulous Product - picks up pet hair - ideal for elderly/those with mobility issues as it is so ligh
I don't usually purchase items advertised on TV but I did here & I am thrilled.
It was 2 for 1 - $99 + 2 x handling fees = $138.90 & worth every cent!
Initially I had a faulty unit & it was replaced within a few days without any drama which was great service.
The sweeper is lightweight, easy to use & picks up my cats long hair which is what I was hoping it would do.
I use it most days just to get any problem areas tidied & it only takes a couple of minutes.
The charge lasts for 3-4 weeks with my usage.
It gets closer to the skirting boards than my vacuum cleaner does & is great for steps & getting under chairs & other items.
I have picked up spilt rice & glitter without a problem but it doesn't like leaves off my potplants.
Due to my long-haired cats, the brushes also take a bit more cleaning than what was shown on TV as it gets stuck in the bristles but I don't mind as it is easier to clean them than be bending down all the time to pick up bits of hair &/or getting the full sized vacuum cleaner out all the time.
It doesn't replace the full sized vacuum cleaner but goes awfully close.
I could see it being ideal for small units, caravans, cleaning up after children, places with stairs & for people with mobility/lifting difficulty.
An elderly friend on a walking frame saw mine & had to purchase - she also loves hers as it allows her to do some of the cleaning that she previously couldn't do.
Only works well for few months
Purchased about a year ago. Black plastic clip on top of see through shield that opens the top to separate for cleaning fell off. Them machine stopped picking up properly. Had to attach tape to keep cover on when plastic clip fell off. Now after several months, one length of brush at front stopped spinning. Have to clean this product every few uses,cempty catch tray & clean brushes. Hair etc also gets caught around inside spinners of brushes. Elderly could not use this product due to constant cleaning maintenance.
3rd Time Around
3rd time around with the Swivel Sweeper started with G2 then 2 x Max. Same problem with all three at around six months with the plastic cog giving out. This causes as you place the sweeper on the floor the brushes from spinning. Plastic parts cannot take wear and tear. Only vacuum tile floor and carpet bedrooms. Sweeper cleaned regularly and not abused. Disappointed as it works well at the start when new, but only to get 6 months use not worth purchasing.
Great little battery operated sweeper
I sent for this fully expecting to be disappointed, but what a surprise, its great so easy to use and very light to lift and so easy to store close to where I mainly use it that is in the kitchen (we have two dogs so lots of dog hair on the floor) and it goes from Vinyl to floating wood floor to carpet with ease. Its great for everyday use. So easy to empty. Would recommend to anyone
Great for every day floor cleaning
Love the ease in which it moves it is very light and it swivels to get in all corners.We are in a rental at the moment which has vinyl flooring and carpet.It works perfectly on both and always amazed at the dirt it picks up.The house has 4 bedrooms a lounge and dining room and does the lot without having to recharge.
Worked for awhile
Bought this from Danoz direct at Munno para shopping centre last year it worked very good for awhile but after A few months stopped working it would be okay for someone with no pets as their hair gets.stuck in the wheels and around the brushes stopping it from working would buy if I had no pets
Excellent cannot recommend this enough
good charge lasts the whole house. not too loud.picks up everything. greats for spills kids pets teenagers. love this thing and cannot recommend it enough wish i could have one at work! dont have to drag out the big vacuum everyday. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT i have a back up still in the box for when the old one dies. wish Big W still sold them
