i hate him


I hate Henry the vacuum cleaner. I hate everything he stands for and i disagree strongly with his values and morals.
He is a disgrace to the community and should not be sold at any shops from today and going forward. I will personally be boycotting any stores I see Henry in and i cant wait to live in a Henry free world. Suction? Terrible. Power? My sister could slurp through a straw harder than Henry. He fails time and time again to complete the simplest of tasks and should be ashamed to call himself a vacuum. I am deeply disappointed in Henry and he will not be getting a second chance from me.

Great Long Lived Vacuum


Obviously this vacuum has a hilarious face which my kids love but its all abut cleaning. Its small but boy does it pack a punch! this is a serious vacuum and we bought it because of Numatic's fantastic reputation these last up to 20 years and I am hoping for that kind of life from it. Suction and cleaning power are fantastic and it comes with a comprehensive suit of tools. A serious vacuum despite the funny face.

Small but powerful vacuum


My roommate had this vacuum and I’ll be sad to leave it behind. It was fine for our 3-bedroom home and didn’t even run that hot. The best thing is it is so light and maneuverable - I used it to clean my car too. The winding mechanism for the cord is maybe the only thing people won’t like but it’s simple and quick.

Love my Henry, clean, powerful and reliable. I used to buy a new vacuum each year don't have to any more. With the bags I buy on line it is cheap and efficient to run and everyone that uses it loves it, long cord powerful suction and easy to use. great vacuum

This is best vacuum cleaner I ever have


I bought different vacuum cleaner twice and I end up to throw them away, Now I have Hendry and been using it more than 3 years and it still work perfectly as just bought, It works quite good on both carpet and floor tiles. The vacuuming power is strong enough to remove soil and small stones. The length of the cord is one of its strength.
Little bit heavy but that is fine because it has wheel to move around

Would not recommend


this hoover is terrible on carpets and has trouble picking up slightly larger things on tiles. It's bulky and hard to manoeuvre and definitely doesn't do a good job. The henrys I have are old hoovers however my old Dyson still does a really good job and is older than the henrys. Would never buy this Hoover again.

We use 2 Henry's in semi commercial environment. They have both performed very well, have excellent suction, are easy to manoeuvre and are very quiet. The dust bags are easy to fit and replace and they come with a good selection of crevice tools. The quality of the hose, fittings etc is very good. Highly recommended.

not easy to use


the suction on this vac is ok but for a $500 vac its not easy at all to use you'll be walking back to guide it around corners it constantly tips over it doesnt have an automatic rewind it constantly comes apart meaning the hose the most frustrating vacuum cleaner i have ever used theres a lot better choices then this one.

What a difference to the last vacuum.


After our last vac, we are amazed at the powerful suction of the Henry. Our Previous vac would have struggled to suck the skin off a boarding house pudding. Not so with the Henry, it actually lifts the carpet from the floor. We are using it in a very large house - half carpet and other half tiles. It is very quite and easily maneuvered.
After making comparisons, we purchased Henry from 'double t appliances'. Included in the delivery price was an extra vacuum head dedicated to hard floors as well as 13 replacement bags and free delivery. The all up cost was $389.00.
We would highly recommend the HRV200-12.

Can't live without him


Excellent suction, easy to move around, very easy to pick up, quieter than expected. Large two level house to vacuum, including that carpeted garage which was always difficult to vacuum but able to get around quickly. Bought this because of its excellent reviews on this website and definitely not disappointed. Only used once first time today, received a few days ago. Eloctrolux motor burnt out after 4 years, probably due to the plaster particles after having some renovations done. Shouldn't worry this one.

Questions & Answers



Dose a Henry HVR200-12 need a bag?

3 answers

No, I do not use one Mate.


They do have bags and I use them. It keeps the filter a bit cleaner. They're very cheap and widely available. Under a dollar each on eBay. They last ages too.


Yes I use the ones that came with mine, but have seen others say they don't use them, just keeps the filter cleaner for longer. Bought my on ebay for $389, came with 12 extra bags, would expect need to change the bag every 3 months, as only vacuum once a month.
