Very good and affordable
I use my Ryobi stick vacuum cleaner on tiles and carpets. So more convenient than my regular vacuur cleaner regarding no cords and easy to use, especially with exstra fittings and light - easy to reach small areas and under beds where my regular vacuum doesn't fit. As we got plenty of Ryobi products and extra batteries, I never run out power.
Bought not long ago and was impressed by suction. Used regularly with a 5amp battery.
A little on heavy side so prob better with a 2amp battery for weight.
Lot cheaper than Dyson with comparable effectiveness according to Choice.
Best stick vacuum we have used
Works great on carpet, used this after we had already gone over our carpet with our Electrolux cyclone vacuum and pulled a heap of pet hair and, gross but everyone has dust which is actually dead skin, dust/dead skin that our supposedly more powerful bag less cyclone barely vac didn’t get.
Same story through the rest of the house which is a 4 bedroom house with 2 living areas and finished it with 2x 2.5Ah batteries.
We bought the skin without battery and charger as we already have 3 batteries and 2 chargers for our other tools.
I don’t know wha...
Very good for the money
Recently purchased the Ryobi stick vacuum based on good reviews, already having 4 batteries in my Ryobi arsenal of tools, and the price. Compared to the new Dyson at over $1000 it represents excellent value. My old Dyson stick has packed it in only working on slow speed and not for very long.
Happy with the Ryobi, it is a little top heavy, the collection container could be larger and the filter needs tip be cleaned often. A tip here, to make this quick I take the filter out with both the hepa filter and fluff catcher still clipped togethe...

Lightweight and easy to use.
I really like this vacuum cleaner, it's great for stairs, great for my car because it's cordless and can be made into a hand held vac. It has a brush and crevice tool with an attachment to keep them altogether in the stick so you don't lose them. There is a stand so that you can create a charging station and the battery last longer than a lot of other cordless vacs. It has enough guts to do my carpet and then slides easily over my tiles for that quick clean.
Questions & Answers
Overall I am not unhappy with the Ryobi on carpet.. it seems to fluff up the carpet nicely and is easy to use.. (much better than having a cord).. but I really struggle with getting the right combination of the filter and pre-filter in.. are there any sites to look at how to install? It needs cleaning out every time I use it, so it would be great to get this sorted?
Mine came pre-installed... And you are not supposed to wash the paper filter but can wash the prefilter. I have actually taken it apart many times to wash the plastic dust box as well with no problem.
Have a look at the picture on your manual and see if you can find clues. If things fit nicely, then you should be on the right track. If you have to force things in, then chances are you're probably not doing the right thing.
