Out old vacuum slowly ran out of puff before we replaced it with this - what a difference! It went off like a tornado the first time I used it - powerful and fairly loud. It pulled up so much dust! I had to empty if after just the lounge and first bedroom.- I didn't mind though because that means it was getting in there and really cleaning. Great value for under $100
Works as intended.
This is powerful but not really a quality unit but in all fairness is is very reasonably priced. Its quite noisy but it does created a lot of suction. The body is fairy sparse with just an on off switch. The basil is good but the barrel is just so so. It works well but I don't know how long it will last. Worth it at the price offered.
Built light and easy to use
This is easy and simple to use. Its lightweight and simple to move around. Emptying the dust out is easy but a bit messy compared to bagged machines. Build quality is just OK bit on the cheap side of things but that is fairly reflected in the price. It's an OK proposition for the money.
Cant do without it
This cleaner has got BIG wheels and I use it all the time in my unit and the suction is GREAT.......I have no problems with it,sucking up all the dust and rubbish on the carpet of my apartment and it sucks up all the cobwebs that like to form around the windows so I have no dramas at all with this
Lots of suction!
This is the top of the Kmart vacuum range (nit sure what that means liol) it has a stack of power, you notice it from the first time you turn it on. Its loud too, very loud. It is kind of cheaply manufactured though and that OK because the price is less than $100. I cant think of any other vacuum that delivers so much power for the price. It aint beautiful but it gets the job done!
Not For the Pet Owner
crazy design of power head where the suction through a turbine provides power to turn power head eg all dirty air goes through turbine.. pet hair just wraps around shaft and it blocks. not easy to remove having to unscrew case of power head held together with small screws .
the main filter does not handle the pet hair well it goes through to small filter wraps around that and blocks.
best avoid if you have pets
I use mine now to clean car it does have the suction of expensive vac in a cheap fragile package
Best not for every day use
Powerful but cheaply made
This goes like a rocket. I really jumped the first time I turned it on because it's so loud (and powerful) but it is also made from quite cheap plastic so I doubt it will last forever. The tubes are good, they are made from chromed steel and the floor tool isn't bad. The whole rest of it is plastic and a bit flimsy here and there. It works well and would probably be best fora a non permanent situation such as a rental. That's where we use ours
Great vaccum for suction
Very happy with performance and suction but the cord seems to be lacking and can only vaccum one room at a time which is really time consuming but doesn't affect the overall use. Pretty good for the price and was easy to assemble. Would be good to have more height adjustment on the hand held stick.
I was very skeptical about buying a vaccum from Kmart but this vaccum is brilliant. It's easy to move around and works great on my wooden floors. There are plenty of attachments which are very handy as I have a varied house. The suction on this vaccum is very powerful and I've never struggled to pick up any thing.
Basic vacuum cheaply made
This goes off like a rocket when you first buy it but the power drops off quite quickly. By the time the barrel is half full the power is noticeably less. Its sort of cheaply made but works well enough. I would say think of it as "cheap but powerful". Its far from perfect but it cleans quite well. I cant see it lasting all that many years but its quite cheap to buy.
Good little vaccum, but don't last very long
It is a very light weight vaccum and it sucks up everything really well, but the cord is short and after using it every week for a few months it has started to loose its suction and button become stuck or harder to press. You get what you pay for I suppose.
Absolutely love it
This vacuum has served me so well. I was able to clean out two hostel hallways with it and it is more than worth the price. I would recommend this vacuum to anyone who is looking for an easy to use vacuum for their home or apartment. I will absolutely buy this one again when mine dies.
I bought one of these last year for my parents and I was impressed with its powerful suction and loved the little filter on the pole so I bought one for myself. Unfortunately, its performance was not good. The little filter broke off after a few months of light use. At the place it came apart, it was impossible to tape it back on. Without it, everything obviously goes to the main drum which is extremely difficult to empty. The smallest dust and bits separate which fall out when you open it but all the bigger dust and hair clumps together inside...the drum and you need much smaller hands than I have to get it out or you need a screwdriver everytime you want to unclog it. Without the little filter on the pole, it literally needs to be taken apart and unclogged every 5 minutes when I was cleaning carpet. After reading similar reviews on this site, I took it back, gave them feedback and the lady said 'not built to last then' and gave me a full refund. I am happy with the Kmart cordless stick vac (cost the same as the other at $99) but it needs to be charged frequently.
Super powerful vacuum very pleased
Can't believe how a cheap vacuum from Kmart has so much power. We were sick of replacing bags and didn't want to spend over a lot of money getting a bagless and this Hoover is great loads of suck power and gets dirt right up off the deep floors or carpets
At $99 this vacuum cleaner really does tick all the boxes regarding performance. Having to replace a Dyson after many years of use, and looking at the cost of a replacement, the benefits of a new Dyson could not justify the high purchase cost.
The 2400W bagless has excellent suction and a good selection of tools. The inline interceptor filter works well as long as it is emptied before it gets too full - an easy and quick operation. The attachment head for carpets cleans well.
The only negative is the rather short power cord - needs to be a few metres longer.
Overall, very happy!
Questions & Answers
Not familiar with dust interceptor can you let me know what to do with it or forward a link to user manual please
Manual is on this page
the roller on the head has stopped spinning i pulled it apart and now it won t go i think ive put it back togther wrong
Try pulling it apart again and fitting the parts back in. It can be as simple as a plastic holder put back in the wrong way. Also while its apart just check there is nothing stopping the belt from rotating. If this doesn't work, it can be easy to buy another head or one of a different model and an adjuster, but for this machine I wouldn't bother wasting the money.
