I love this vacuum! I can’t believe I am actually saying that!
1. Why did I choose to buy this vacc over the Bosch Readyy'y 2-in-1 Handstick Vacuum Cleaner ( The brand of vacc I went in to buy.)??....
Simply put, it was because of 2 key reasons.
- I loved the manoeuvrability of this. Definitely better agility than the Bosch, but the real decider for me was the sucking and cleaning power.
- You see, I took in 2 small zip lock bags of my own made dirt mix. I live at the beach, so some sand mixed with hair, fluff, and dirt - a nice dirty cocktail!! :) Tipping both packets of dirt on the floor of Harvey N...orman store, with a Bosch in one hand and the Electrolux in the other, my vacuum comparison began. Both cleaned up all the dirt easily enough but it was the Electrolux that had the best first pass suction power to pick up the most dirt on the first pass over the carpet. In fact it sucked up about 90% of the dirt on the first glide over the carpet whereas the Bosch took about 3 passes over the carpet before all traces of visible dirt were gone. 2.) Since bringing it home- I love the light on the vacuum head. I use this nearly every day just to keep my floors fresh. I use it on tiles and carpet and I empty the catcher container after each use. I am genuinely surprised by how much dust I bang out of the filter that it sucks up. I also have a small poodle cross dog although she doesn’t shed much hair.
This was discounted from $349. The price made me lower my expectations, but I was genuinely surprised. Lightweight, moves easily & the suction is very impressive as long as you REGULARLY empty the dust bag & filter. I did not realize how much easier a cordless vacuum is to use (I hate this task), so much so that I have only used my expensive Miele a couple of times since. I have only run out of juice twice in my 3 bedroom house but you soon learn how to avoid this and recharging is moderately fast. I now vacuum my lounge & dining rooms almost ...daily. I love the long extension piece for the handheld which makes a great spider catcher on my ceilings. No more dramas with extension cords & reparking the car. Frankly, I will never be without a cordless from now on. The only disappointment is that Godfreys Napier (NZ) do not stock replacement filters and were less than helpful directing me to anyone that does. The only fault is the pull tab on the filter is flimsy (you need to use this often to loosen & remove dust) mine broke off, but I have nails, so not an issue for me. There are also a number of accessories I haven't used yet & I watched a couple of YouTube videos where I learned some surprising tips. All in All ...... a worthy buy for the $199 price I paid 18 months ago.
