A bit of a joke
I have just put my (approximately) tenth swivel sweeper in the bin; this is a great example of a device that shows initiative, and brilliance. However, the workmanship, measured over about eight years, has consistently failed the basic tests. batteries, screw-joints, and brush-cleanability, to name a few, all are designed to fail within a short period - and this plan has worked perfectly ! A short-life product, intended to support the view that Asian-built products are to be viewed with serious doubt.
Purchased in December 2010 for A$75.00.
Great for getting dust out of carpet
Very good, I use it to clean around the house, extremely good at getting Cat hair out of everything, and dust out of carpets. The battery has gotten a bit slower recently, and won’t fully charge for some reason, but it was still cheap and nothing really problematic. Originally saw it in home shopping, and I knew I had to buy it! It’s important that you clean it after every clean, however because it gets clogged up with dust easily.
Purchased in March 2018 for A$120.00.
Only used a handful of times before failing totally
My elderly Mum purchased the Swivel sweeper max for me from Danoz, a while ago but I only unboxed it 4 weeks ago, at first I was pleased with the job it did picking up surface dust etc on my tiled floor but after becoming clogged with hair and debris it shut of as it indicated it would in the manual, after clearing the brushes it no longer works at all. Wasted her money unfortunately
The best cleaning product ever
The best cleaning tool ever, I was given one for my birthday and it works very well. It picks up everything on my floors and it is lightweight and easy to use. With the touch less dirt tray it makes it the best cleaning tool ever and the RCR bristle technology is perfect. Because its lightweight I can clean my stairs easily. This is the best product I have ever owned and it will clean up anything. It is truly a great product.
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
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.

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 bo...
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.
Good on hard floors
I really like it on hard floors - not so much on carpets. It has replaced my broom - no dust flares, as all dust from floor is caught. A little harder to push along my carpets as its quite thick pile. Battery-life is good - enough to cover all hard floors - kitchen, bathroom, even front porch tile if I'm feeling frisky. Very easy to clean, efficient, effective, worth the money. Try not to let it get clogged. Murder to unclog the bristles! Recommended (for hard floors)
The Max is my best friend.
.This time I bought the Max Swivel Sweeper .I found this Max is amazing to the old ones.Better way of cleaning the brushes ,has a magnetic spot on the side of so that it folds to the side .Swivels so much better and picks up perfectly.I has a rechargeable battery .Very easy to get under furniture it has an amazing swivel head that can go under anywhere.I have 2 Dogs and the Max picks up the hair easily so I don't have to take the Vaccum out every time I have to clean the carpet or the wood floors or the tiles picks up on my floors perfectly .The Max swivel sweeper is light to use,and moves across carpet or any other type floors so easily.And extra batteries can be bought from Danoz Direct..My amazing Max could not do without it...
Its perfect for everyday quick sweep up.
I love my swivel max. I have had it for a long while now, about 2 years, and it is perfect for my 5th wheeler caravan.In the van it is easy to manouvre under furniture and in the small spaces. I have a bird, 2 cats and a dog in it and it picks up hairs and feathers fantastically.
Just so good and easy to clean - the battery has a life that does my 2 bed unit 2 times before recharging is needed. I need never need to use a broom again and does so well in-between vaccums. I have arthritis and even the broom on my vinyl floors caused my back and legs to ache. This swivel sweeper I call my buzz machine and does just so well. I do not like cleaning it much but so easily done and I take it outside to do so. Well the catch area is smaller than a vaccuum cleaner but so much easier to use and causes me no trouble at all with a good result. Hopefully it will last many years as I have seen in prior reviews. Mind you I have left bad review for the Flavormaster but I should leave good reviews for the good things too.
Questions & Answers
Are your Max Swivel Sweepers still available?
What may be the reason for the swivel sweeper not working properly?. Is it the batteries? or the charger ? or the cleaner itself. How do I make it function properly?. It is quite handy and useful for small vacuuming. It is about 4 years old and not used much. Both the G2 and MAX having the same problem of not working properly. My name is omkarnath and my email ID is [email removed] Thanks and Regards
We bought 2 of your sweeper max's ( purple ones) about 14 months ago and both have issues with the sweeper not spinning. I am an electrician so thought I would take one apart to investigate and found that the plastic teeth on the end of the motor have worn down so the motor just spins. The big cog also has damaged teeth. I also then checked the second one and same issue.
Can you please send me replacement parts so I don't have to throw them both in the rubbish bin as this would be a waste of money?
