Good suction lasts only a couple of months
I use my vacum everyday at home on both carpet and tiles. Initially i was vwey happy with my purchase. I empty the vacum reguarly and dust out the filter but within twi months the suction has weakened alot. The vacum is constantly tipping which is very fustrating. Overall im not happy with this product.

You get what you pay for
Purchased about 12 mths ago and when it came out of the box it worked great but now, eh, not so much. If $$ is a major consideration then its a good purchase but if you have a large house, pets and active children I'd suggest invest a little more into a model that would be more sturdier, which is what I'm now researching.

You get what you pay for
Easy to use.
Mine mysteriously stopped sucking just after a year, despite the motor still working and me not being able to find any blockage anywhere, despite taking it apart entirely. A mystery. I suppose you get what you pay for...

I am pretty disappointed with this vac constantly clogs, I was planning on returning it but because of quarantine I’m stuck with it. It does have powerful suction but having pets , it needs emptying constantly .
Purchased in February 2020 at Kmart Retail Stores.
good suction bad everything else!
I've owned for about 1 year. brush head useless, cord button never worked, and too short. Now it squeals so loud i can't use it.
I could go on with other issues too. in the bin it goes.

Does what I need
I was looking for a vacuum machine to keep my house clean and it does what I need. It is not made to vacuum liquids but it works well with vacuuming dust.
I use it on my sofa as well. The only issue is being bagless but overall it is great considering the cheap price it has.
Part broken just after 1 year
I bought it in Nov 17; it had been a ok machine but it was noisy. Now 3 weeks out of the warranty. The handle is broken and could not connect it back. I cannot use it anymore.it is not worth paying $100 once a year.It is disappointing. It is
powerful, lightweight, powerhead and attachments a bit too lightweight
Yes tips over during use as cord not long enough
good for the car or quick run round
barrel hard to reattach following empty
if your looking for a very light weight unit you can carry around (very light) this is the one
sometimes blows the dirt around as very powerful
personally prefer their upright version (seems to collect more dust)
powerhead not motorised
OK Just OK Passable
I was quite impressed with this at first but as time worn on I see it has a few obvious faults. Yes, as everyone says it is powerful BUT not for long as it is not really cyclonic and stacks the dirt in a lopsided fashion and quickly runs out of puff. The second factor is that it has a huge central filter and you MUST remove this and clean it out regularly to keep it running well. - this is a very messy job and had me questioning the whole "bagless" thing. Its cheap but it has flaws.
Pet hair turbo brush? Don't bother
Had to replace my Dyson vacuum cleaner (after 10 years) which had a great turbo brush. Initially I was going to buy the cheaper vacuum cleaner but thought that the turbo brush on this $99 version would help keep my carpets cat-hair-free. This proved to be ineffective. I get a better result from the standard floor head. Wish I'd bought the simpler $48 vacuum instead.
Worked great for the 1st month
I was amazed at how much power this vac had in the first month and then i soon realized it was too good to be true. I would constantly empty and clean the filter but it lost suction in the second month. Ended up taking it back for a refund.
Great little machine for a small space
I own 2 quality vacuums but these were too big for the small space we needed to clean our caravan. We have used once and was really impressed with the suction. Cleaned well and stores well. This vacuum is way better than KMarts bagged Vacuum which honestly did not suck as well so I gave it away. Emptied out after first use but I would say you would need to empty after every two to three times. Dust/material gets stuck in both pieces so we used an air compressor to blow it clean and without an air compressor It would be a pain to get cleaned pro...perly because the spaces are small and fiddly to reach and you might have to take it apart from time to time. Happy overall with price,size and suction and material quality. People mention that this is loud but it’s not in my opinion and sounds like a normal vacuum. If it lasts a year we got our moneys worth. Feels like a 2000 wat and sucks just as good as my expensive machines. Will update in a couple of months if it looses it suction. Remember every month to wash the filters and dry properly because this should maintain the overall condition of this appliance so it performs well.
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 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.
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.
