I love this little guy!
This is the most underrated Vacuum. My Dyson died and wasn't convinced it was that great with the amount of money spent on it so I tried out Mums Henry and decided to buy one! It's a great little Vacum. It's got good suction and the bag space is huge so your not emptying it as often as other vacuums.
Purchased in October 2018 at Capital equipment machienery sales for $395.00.
Henry - my best cleaning buddy!
I purchased my Henry in 2007 on the advice of a friend who worked in hotels his whole life and saw that Henry was the number one choice in that demanding commercial environment. Fast forward 10+ years and my machine is still going strong. Used on hard floors, and mostly carpet plus vacuuming the car occasionally. I run mine on the lower power setting and rarely find myself needing the high power level. Originally came with the paper bags but I've since discovered the newer Numatic genuine cloth bags. I seem to be able to fit more into these wit...hout losing suction and they are much easier to fit and remove than the old paper bags which had could tear if you were a bit rough putting them in. If Henry ever dies (I hope he doesn't), i'd replace with another Henry without hesitation. I see there is a cordless model now, so that might be my next one!
Purchased in April 2007 for $499.00.
Best vacuum cleaner ever. It totally sucks!
I’ve had Henry for about two years now and he’s honestly the best vacuum cleaner I’ve ever had. No gimmicks, no bells and whistles, just a really sturdy, well-built little unit that you can rely on to do his job!
You can use him bagless, or do as we do and just empty the bags. Last week I finally threw out the first bag after two years of emptying it.
Really manouverable, long cord, plenty of storage for tools on board.
Buy Henry, you won’t be disappointed!
Best vacuum cleaner, value for money
This English made vacuum cleaner is sturdy and great for large areas. Has a very long cord. Comes with large bags and additional for about a $1 ea. can also be used bag less. Bought online and deliveredwas cheaper than in store. Adjustable suction and additional attachments make it suitable for a variety of surfaces. An economical purchase compared to some other brands. Virtually the power of a commercial vacuum cleaner. It's size might be an issue for a small home or apartment both in use and storage.
Edward (big brother) died after 25 years.
After 25 years of using Edward, I am more than happy with Henry. Very quiet and easy to use. Can vacuum the whole house from just 2 power points as the cord is a good length. Easy to change the heads. Plenty of suck. Made in England for reliability. Loved Edward and now love Henry. Paid $285.00 including postage from UK. Just had to get the plug changed to AUS.
The biggest surprise with the Henry is how quiet the unit is (I had to check that I had switched it on). This vacuum cleaner has simplicity with suction that is amazing. You are able to dial the amount of suction for every surface you need to vacuum.
Henry is a small commercial class vacuum cleaner which is easy to assemble and pack up, has a long cord that is retractable and the unit moves easily with you. In the box you will find all the attachments along with a set of vacuum bags to get you started. Henry comes with a face...you may or may not chose to attach this. Henry is available in two colours - Blue or Red.
Excellent Henry sucks like a trooper
Very pleased with this version of Henry, normal Henry wattage is around 500 watts. This 720 watt version with that little extra suction makes all the difference pulls really hard and makes out for a banging job. :) light weight and on casters, glides around the room fairly quiet in comparison to the 500w version. hardly any noise. I use Henry to suck the filth from everywhere.
Best vacuum ever
Built to last mine is now 15 years old & still going strong. I work as a housekeeper & have tried other models & this one has survived & beats the rest by far. Its been through the toughest even sucks up builders mess including sand & concrete with ease. Easy to wind extra long cord. Bags are inexpensive & last a long time. Love my Henry would never consider anything else.
The Best!! So reliable and efficient
I've had my Henry for about 5 years and wish they were more commonly available Australia as I would recommend to anyone looking for the sort of reliability and efficiency that Henry provides. So easy to move around and so easy to use - My only wish is that we had a Henry at work as well so I didn't have to struggle around with the old useless one we have there now.
Henry's are common place in the UK and trusted by so many - What a pity Australia hasn't caught up yet!!
