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 d...

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.
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,
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
I was really happy with this sweeper except that the battery never lasted long and now it simply won't charge. I purchased this product from Big W and now they don't sell them any more. I really expected it to last longer. It's been sitting in my laundry for a year unused because it won't charge, but I am reluctant to throw it away because if I had a new battery it would work. Surely the battery should have lasted more than a few months.
Product ain't grand Weak Pole
This G2 model was given as a gift when I bought the H20 HD. Pole snapped off (plastic part nearest to the charger) not worth paying postage $19.95 to NZ to replace pole for this product. Pity no direct shop in New Zealand. Gift or not, DANOZ should've sent replacement pole for free. " No complaints with the H20 HD" satisfied.
Started off great now unusable
I bought my swivel sweeper from Big W sometime last year. I really enjoyed using it. It did what it was supposed to until the day I left the battery on the charger overnight. Now it runs for about a minute and just stops. The light on the charger stays red. I think it's designed to break down so people will buy more batteries and chargers. And no I haven't contacted a service centre as I don't have a receipt and I refuse to pay one more cent to resolve the problem. Surely after enough complaints the company can fix the problems with the batteries and chargers. It can't be that hard.
It's good for the price $20 I paid from a cheapie shop of a run out model came with 2 batteries. sold for me it's no power house on hard floor it's ok, nothing else but it does work .
crumbs and bits it's not a carpet sweeper...Never charge the batteries for more than 4 hours..
prefer the old red one
I have just bought the new black swivel sweeper and very dis-appointed. I have quite flat carpet in my house and in between vacuuming I would use my red swivel sweeper and it did quite a good job, but after having it for 5 years it packed up so couldn't be without I bought the new black one and it doesn't do the carpet at all. Only good for the kitchen floor which is vinyl...
for a quick cleanup light job, its pretty good. Its plastic, so its going to break eventually, but for the purchase price, one cant really complaint.
This product is fantastic but has a fatal flaw
I have a very good and very bad report to make on the swivel sweeper. Big W have been stocking them for 4 years now and although I loved the lightweight, quiet cleaning of this product I have now returned for replacement 5 of them as they all broke at the same point at the bottom of the pole. With each replacement I have been more careful and gentle with it and still the last one broke off after couple of months so took it back AGAIN and there were no more left so had to buy heavy noisy upright cordless vacumn cleaner which I hate after the eas...e of using the swivel sweeper but I never had any problem with the battery, probably because the pole didn't last long enough for the battery or charger to wear out. So I guess unless they address the problem with the pole breaking there is no point in me trying to buy another one online. At one stage Big W told me no one else complained about pole and I was refused another replacement so have actually purchased 2 full price and now don't have one.
Value for money
I am rather surprised that although the product is very cheap, it actually picks up hair n dirt on floor very easily. The swivel is excellent as I can pick up in any nooks n corners. Would be good if the company produced a higher powered one using same technology of seamless bags.
Save Your Money!
The only good thing about this product is that it prevents me from becoming an on-line shopping addict! It is the most useless piece of junk I have ever bought! I had purchased this for only the kitchen floor tiles and my kitchen is relatively small. It doesn't pick up half the stuff (like dry onion skins for one); it never really gets the bits in the corners and if you every make a mistake and put it on any rug or carpet you have had it. When you empty it it goes everywhere. It takes an hour to clean the brushes (especially if any hair, or...string gets caught) and it seems to always be dirty after each use. The motor is so inefficient you spend more time cleaning the floor than cleaning dinner dishes and the whole of the kitchen. So I threw it away and bought a portable upright Dyson - expensive but well worth the purchase.
when they first came out my swivel sweeper was fine loved it. the second is so bad i cant believe it is so different it has no suction I talked my daughter in to getting one and hers is the same as my second one crap. what have you done to the production I would love another like my first one.
I have had a swivel sweeper from when they first came out I never had any trouble with mine. I find it great for picking up cat fur. Although it would be good to have a bigger tray to hold more dirt. I now need a new battery, I am wondering were I can get new battery from, Karen Vic
It did what it said it would do. It is for small job around the house or tuch up in between vacuuming. Great on cat fur as I have seven of them
After all the years I used it I now need a replace battery.
I have had the g2 sweeper about 12 months. Very happy over all, but I am finding the tray at the bottom is loose and doesn't click in properly anymore, sometimes spilling dust on the floor. Maybe stronger grips would help? Otherwise all good for a quick clean up. Have also bought one for a friend.
Quick clean up between vacs.
Tray at bottom loose and keeps opening. doesnt click in properly.
Questions & Answers
I bought TWO dANOZ sWIVEL sWEEPER THE BATTERY FOR BOTH LASTED two months only. To buy new battery the cost is more than the complete Sweeper. I am prepared to buy new battery provided the price is reasonable
I turned the machine off and it was resting on the wall. The long handle slid and hit the ground breaking in two pieces. A good machine that is very poorly built
I bought new batteries and while charging they broke the charger. How do I go about getting a new charger?
Please contact our Sales team on 1800 808 938 and they will place an order a new Swivel Sweeper charger to be sent.
Thank You, Danoz
