Vacuum cleaner review
This is great little machine plenty of suction not over noisy does the job perfectly filters easy to clean all for $49 what more do you want highly impressed with this purchaseShow details
Best vacuum I've ever bought. Definitely not a case of You get what you pay for. Top line vacuum at bargain basement priceShow details
Makes cleaning chore effortless!
Cant believe such a cheap(Dyson look alike) vacuum cleaner is so powerful(2000W), light (3.5kg), easy to pull along and sucks so well. Was a bit skeptical as it was only $52! Just sucks the dirt, can see the barrel filing up with all the dirt, empty it out or wash out the plastic barrel, no big fuss or expense of getting new bags.
I made a good choice after all! Give it a go, for that price no big risk.
It is from K Mart
lasted just over 12 months
cheap and did the job though not remarkably so. Small 2bed apartment and it died with minimal-moderate useShow details
Good Base, terrible add on
I've used this vacuum only once. Suction seems to be good, a little loud but that's OK.
My biggest issue was that it was scratching my floor. For whatever reason both this one and the 2200W one have the same floor vacuuming attachment. Only the backside of the addon has 2 small wheels. The front side (which is bare metal) simply drags all over the floor. Luckily my floor was concrete but I wouldn't dare using this on wood. Perhaps ok on carpets. The vacuum itself is OK. The floor attachment definitely needs replacing which is $30 or so online.
Stops working after a few months
Bought in November 2021, won’t turn on anymore in May 2022. Very disappointed, waste of money. Would not recommend, best to spend a bit more on a product that lastsShow details
When I was doing my floor
It just shut off and never powered on again. You get what you pay for
Nothing I do not recommend this
To my worst enemy avoid
Falsely labelled as 2000W.
Bought this as my old contempo started switching off periodically. Compared old 1800W Contempo to 2000W Anko and Anko had less suction and didnt do a good job on my carpet. Went and measured power on both and Anko is only 1320 Watts (see pic) not 2000W as advertised. While my old one runs at rated power 1800w. Gonna be returning Anko tomorrow. FALSELY ADVERTISED AS 2000Watts.Show details
Poor cyclonic design
I bought this as a quick and cheap solution after my old Dyson stopped working. I like the bagless cyclonic design and Dyson no longer owns the patent, so there are lots of brands to choose from these days.
The Anko works, but its foam filter clogs up much faster than my old Dyson’s filter. It needs cleaning every second use, whereas the Dyson would go at least 20 times longer between filter cleans. A high volume of dust particles are somehow getting past the Anko’s cyclonic system. But I still gave it 3 stars because it’s so cheap. That said, I’ll eventually replace the Anko with something better.Show details
Bought to use "wrong", not disappointed
I bought this for $47 to attach to a ceiling sander, and to clean up plaster sanding work. This was expected to fail.
Yes I have a shop-vac, all it does is fire dust out the exhaust "hepa" filter kit, which alone costs more than this vac.
The vacuum is very light duty machine, very soft plastics used, wouldn't survive too many drops, but survived the 3 I gave it.
It handled an industrial application without ejecting plastering dust back out the hepa exhaust filter.
Very small and nimble.
Can break down and wash every part very easily.
Good for floors not carpet
If you’re on a budget and have floorboards or hard style carpets (industrial, non plush) then for $47 this is not a bad machine.
However, if you have plush carpets or carpets that were once plush and not so plush now, I would not recommend.
You need to vacuum over and over on the same spot and sometimes bend down to dislodge or pick up fibres that it just can’t pick up.
You must empty the dust bucket and clean the filter VERY regularly or it won’t vacuum as well.
The hand held component is not as comfortable as other vacuums and you can tire easily, so if you have wrist issues consider this before purchasing.
Not recommended. Cheap but not recommended
Purchased form Kmart based on the reviews I saw here, usually trust the users but guess we are on different spectrums on this. I thought I would write a proper review (note this is my opinion). The price is good. Hard to fault that, although its not value. Light, so you can move it around but the handle (too short you may need to bend) is so light it doesn't allow you to properly vacuum. The suction on the vacuum is bad. I have carpet so the main reason you buy a vacuum but the suction is not strong enough. I had to go over the same area 4-5 ti... Read moremes before I thought something happened. I tried the tiles, same thing, had to go over a few times, in the end, used a brush. The bin size is alright, but device is not worth it. The vacuum doesn't really do what it is built for, pickup dust and particles. I would recommend looking at another product
Good for a caravan
Good suction but overheat and shut down after 20minutes of continuous use. Good for vacuuming a car or a caravan, probably. Its pretty loud. I returned to the shop as it was still in warrantyShow details
You get what you pay for!
Surprise, surprise, it’s dead two weeks after warranty has run out, and we only used it in a holiday house. It was cheap, but you definitely get what you pay for! Suction is quite strong, but cord is too short, tube is easily clogged, it’s quite noisy and barrel doesn’t hold enough. Guess it would be ok for a small unit or as a car vac. I would not recommend.Show details
