Good value vacuum sucks like my ex wife
Great vacuum for the price. Comes with handy little side vacuum that’s great. Sucks like my ex wife (according to half the town where I live). Can’t go wrong for $100. Why pay $1000 for a Dyson that maybe does a 10% better job.

Cheap and shows it.....
Hose connection to the barrel keeps separating from hose.... angle of the handle is too curved.....very noisy compared to another cheap brand vacuum that has similar wattage.... Most annoying vacuum I've ever had but have to put up with it until I can get a better one...

Honest truth, better than my Dyson
Own a newsagency/Post Office. Got a call from my wife, while I was in Big W, saying the Dyson smoked up. Brought the Piranha off the shelf for $99.00. Took it back to the shop, threw the Dyson into the bin and used the new vacuum. Incredible, sucked up much more dirt off the short pile carpet and rubber entry way than the Dyson ever did. Have used it daily for about 4 weeks now and still impressed. If it lasts for more than 12 months I will be happy.
Does the job
Con,s (if being picky)
Small barrell, requires empting more often
cord could be longer.
Would buy again.

Worst vaccum I have ever owned.
This vaccum doesnt suck well at all. I live in a farm house so get quite alot of dirt. It doesnt pick up much, you can see what it misses.

I’ve only had this vacuum for 10 months. The plastic lever on steel hose broke off while I was getting it out of the box so I taped it back on. Since then I’ve had to tape the plastic hose tube up as it has broken at both top and bottom ends 6 times, so the hose is now too short. The previous model (red) was outstanding and I had that for 7 years with no issues so I assumed this one would be as good! Don’t waste your money

I used this cleaner on both carpet and tile floors, the vacuum itself was disappointing, loud and not reliable. Haven’t even owned it for a year and it’s now broken (the filter decided to no longer sit on its base anymore so it cannot be used) the Cord length is very short making it a hassle trying to vacuum, the cord is too fast to go back in and has hit me many times which hurts, always tipped over and makes high pitched sounds and the hose always twists itself and also made high pitched sounds when it was twisted. The hand held vacuum isn’t even worth using!

Nice little vacuum that came with a bonus
Purchased the piranha Royale from big w and happy to see a bonus hand held vacuum that came with it both have great suction pulling the heavy rug up when vacuuming and I thought my old vacuum was doing the job but obviously not because canister filled up after I vacuumed the rug so now I know it’s gotten down into the pile with all that great suction power the hand held mini vac has a nice long cord

Just what I was looking for.
I have only recently purchased the product and so far am extremely happy with it, it’s lightweight making it easy to move around. I’ve had a Vax machine for approx 15 - 20 yrs and although it still works great I found it was a bit to large to manoeuvre around in the house I’m in now. I only have vinyl floors now so I was looking for something that would be on par with my old machine but smaller and more convenient to use. I’m more than happy with my purchase... it’s easy to assemble and comes with additional fittings and works great on my vinyl floors. It’s bagless which makes it easy to empty and clean and there’s no ongoing costs to purchase bags.

So far so good
I purchased this yesterday because I was at my wits end with a previous expensive purchase that ended up being a waste of $. After my one use, here's my feedback: 1) the cord is long enough. I have to use a long extension anyway, but it is longer than most vacuums (I'm a serial vacuum buyer), 2) the suction power is great. For those complaining it is scratching the floors etc, you need to loosen up the airflow on the handle 3) human hair - with girls in the house, I suspect most of my vacuum woes usually comes down to clogging and tangling of h...air. It's unavoidable and maintenance is the key. This vacuum let me know that it was tangled in the head immediately and I was able to clean it out. If you lose suction - something is caught so you need to get it out. 4) I have a combination of floor and tile and worked really well on both surfaces 5) The small head has advantage of getting under and close to what you need. The disadvantage as it take a little longer than larger head vacuums but I was happy to sacrifice for the quality of the job 6) It's light which I really prefer to the heavier vacuums. 7) came with a power hand-held that I haven't tested yet. Only thing I didn't like and took a star off is that the hose tended to tangle, and it is noisy - there's a high pitch that as I get older hurts my ears.

Don't buy it
It's easier to pick up the dust with your own hands . Don't buy it kids vacuum sucks more. That's why it's so cheap but still don't waist your money. I bought it used it few times and can't wait to check it in the bin
Purchased at Big W Retail Stores for $100.00.
OMG it's so bad
Where do I start..??
Why you shouldn't buy this thing..
Cable length too short
Metal suction tube too short (for anyone over 5ft)
Very small dust capacity
Crappy head sucks down tightly onto and then scratches timber floors.
Base unit too light (flips over while using it and clogs filter)
Aweful, cheap plastics and construction....

Had to return
It started off well but gave up after a week. It became very loud and had no suction. The chord that came with it was very short too. Eventally had to buy Miele from Binglee. But Big W offered return seamlessly., which was good.
Purchased in August 2019 for $99.00.
I purchased this because of the great reviews online however found the suction not as strong as reviewed and having to empty the dust bin half way through each clean or it loses suction strength. For the price I believe the $25 dollar Kmart ones are a better purchase!

Good suction for cheep price.
Purchased this cause it was cheep and we needed something to get us through until we could get a larger more expensive vacuum.
This vacuum has really good suction and picks up an excellent amount of dirt for its price. The head is to flimsy and designed bad, although it gets you through you have to be careful not to push to hard. The head also gets caught up on carpet making it harder to use. The head also tends to push large dirt on hardwood floor rather then sucking it up.
Cleaning filters is easy but annoying, as you will be doing that often. Emptying barrel is easy.
I would recommend this. It works fine, just remember it is cheep so some parts are going to feel cheep.
