Way better than expected.
6 years ago I was lucky enough to win an Electrolux Ergorapido stick vacuum. It finally died a few weeks ago and as I was reluctant to spend $250 replacing it, I looked for an alternative. After some research I decided on the Target 2 in 1 stick vacuum for $69. After the Ergorapido, I didn't have high hopes, but boy, was I surprised. This is a great little machine. It is light and easy to use, it handles carpet and tile and even my medium length shag pile rug. On the low setting (which is quite adequate) it lasts for around 20 minutes. ...Charging took around 4 hours. Only con is the hand held unit, the nozzle is at an odd angle and doesn't seem to pick up as well as the Electrolux unit did. I only use the Target stick vac for touch ups between weekly vacuuming with my trusty old Dyson and I am extremely pleased with its performance. It just goes to show that cheap and cheerful can also be reliable and efficient.
Purchased in February 2020 at Target Australia for $69.00.
Decent little vacuum cleaner
This purchase of the Target Home brand 2 in 1 vacuum cleaner was the best choice I could have made within my budget, it's the perfect size to fit in a small tight space, and it all neatly sits on its charging deck. Basic model, but does what I need, fairly good suction for carpets too, and doesnt scratch my wood floors. Easy to empty vacuumed contents, good for vacuuming small or large interior areas, and it comes with fast or slow speed settings, which is good because the "slow" lower sound doesn't seem to bother my dog, who normally isn't a fan of vacuum cleaners full stop...
Purchased in September 2019 at Target Australia for $69.00.
Questions & Answers
Just received on Friday but can't seem to get it to charge. Have check power source and connection. Is there an indicator light??
A red light comes on when charging (near top of hand held section). It will change to green when charging complete and when using the vacuum. Make sure the unit is sitting firmly on the charging base.
Exactly what I was going to say. If nothing works, take it back and ask for an exchange or refund... best of luck!
how do you disassemble the head
Not sure what you mean? If you mean take the rotating brush out to clean it, there is a rectangular tab with a round button on the underside of the head that looks like a screw with lock/unlock symbol. Just unlock with a coin or blade of a knife then pull that whole tab off. You can then remove the brush. If you mean take the head off, there is a silver button on the front of the cleaner near the bottom, press that and pull the head off. You can then use the cleaner as a hand held unit. Hope this helps.
Does this come apart so that I can use it to vacuum my lounge suite and car interior?
