It may not be for you
The vacuum has been used on hard floors and woolen carpet. We have a small dog. The salesperson assured us it was perfect for the job.
We became increasingly concerned by how often we needed to clean impacted fluff and dust from the tube and the cannister housing where the tube enters. - every time.
We returned to the vendor, who cleaned the filter and said it would be fine.
Two weeks later we were back in the shop with the same problem.
The salesperson implied that we had an unusual carpet (standard woolen) and that type of stick vacuum was ...

Don't waste your money
This is the worst product I've ever purchased. The head and the light stops working while in use and there is very poor suction especially when using the attachments. Cleaning is a real pain too as you have to take out the roller to get all the hair out that's wrapped around it. The only thing I like about it is it comes with 2 batteries and the head has a good swiverl. Very disappointed and for the price it should be good. Should have stuck with Dyson. Never again don't waste your money.
Loved it at first but continually gets blocked each time we use it. Spend more time clearing the pipes etc over the bin than vacuuming. Disappointed for the high price .

Do not get fooled
Takes 5 hours to charge each battery separately! Poor suction. Battery only lasts for around 7 minutes. Supposed to go for 25 min each battery. Do not waste your money!
Should have got a Dyson.
Should have got a Dyson. The sales man's main selling point was they are better than Dyson. After 6 months it doesn't compare to my mum's 4 year old Dyson. Only works well in boost mode and then the battery doesn't last long at all. Cleaning the Dyson is also much easier. Took it to the shop they serviced it for free and said it was fine. $700 vacuum shouldn't need regular servicing.
Please do not buy this product . You will be very very disappointed with the function and service.
Poor sucking. Heavy to use. Unable to buy filters easily. Not support from wertheim goes through Godfreys. Overheard easily . 2nd battery does not charge through at and. Battery only lasts for 5 minutes. Really poor product. 10 months old .

Great time saver vacc!
I use the Evolution on carpet and tiled floor and it picks up well on both.
Love this vacc.Plenty of power ,suction,and battery life.
Saves heaps of time without cords to drag .
A handy vacuume but dog hair gets caught in the tube leading away from the main head it’s hard to clean as does not come apart had to make a wire clip to get in there
Not really worth the money as it does not pick all dust and hair up
My daughter has a Kmart one priced at around $150 and it does a better job
Great Suction and Light
I love how light and quiet this vaccum is . It’s very powerful for such a light vaccum cleaner . The head works on my carpets and hard floors easily . It’s made my life a lot easier . The double batteries ensure I don’t have to keep charging the machine.
suction plus power head makes easier to vacuum. I am really happy of 2 batteries that charges on the stand. Works well on both floor and carpet. does well as expected.
Has some good features, but lacks any real suction.
I have the big brother of this brand of vacuum and just think it's the best vacuum but the stick vacuum seems more a sweeper it collects dog hair and fibres but doesn't seem to have any real suction even with the boost on.
It's nice and light weight and has a great charging station, I wanted to get rid if our Dyson stick vacuum but will have to hang on to it to actually vacuum the dust and sand, I didn't even bother getting the salesman to demonstrate as I was confident it would be as good as it's big brother.
All the magic is in the powerhead...and that’s all. Disappointing.
I really want to love this vac, I truely do. We bought this to replace the ducted vac after we had the inside of the house repainted.
Is it well made? Seems to be.
Is it convenient and easy to use? Yep, certainly is.
Can the powerheads get dog fur off of an upholstered office chair? Nope.
Does it pick up dust, dog fur and most other things off hard floor and carpets? Yep......when you use the powerhead. Take that off and try using any non-motorised attachments and it’s..........all but useless; can’t even pick up a staple off a hard wood floor...
Cannot live without this product
amazing machine, has made my cleaning so much easier and picks up the pet hair in a breeze. its very easy to empty and I like the fact it comes with two batteries and best of all a stand as well. I recommend this to all my friends.compared to others, its the best value for money.

One of the best vacuum cleaners that will last for years
Wertheim Evolution Handstick W7301 - We bought this vaccum cleaner a few weeks back
It is so convenient and powerful. It is not too heavy. Hope to use for years to come. We had a traditional vacuum cleaner by Wertheim and it lasted us 20 years...still in good condition. So hoping that this model will also last a very long time.
Purchased this vac with the idea it was going to be great but sadly this is not the case. Suction is terrible, needing to go over carpet 4-5 times to pick up dog hair. Purchased the Dyson V8 animal extra for $120 less from JB Hifi 3 hours later with a massive improvement on the Wertheim Evolution. I would not recommend this product!
Overpriced but an ok vacuum
This worked well on boost mode on carpets however then you lose battery time. I wondered if the lights could be turned off somehow to extend the run time? Otherwise I found it functioned OK on other floors on normal. Easy to maneuver and compact so easy to store.
I walked into Goddfreys with the intention of buying a Dyson, although sales rep advised not too - told me Hoover Vortex Pro Stick Vacuum and this one would be the way to go. I almost brought the Hoover because it had amazing suction in the shop but then once I returned he told me he...could get this one at a better price and can reach places the hoover couldn't, so I took the chance on this. Then I got home, and realised it doesn't reach stuff in the wall corners and between the tiles, probably due to lack of suction that I liked in the Hoover. I wish I got the Hoover now to be honest, I don't feel the value for money on this even though it works OK.

Not happy at all with this vacuum
I only get 20 mins out of it and I can’t even vac my whole house in one go cause the battery dies on me. I wish I had of got a Dyson now to be honest. Really really annoyed and totally regret buying it.
An amazing hand stick !!
I use the Werthiem Evolution Hand Stick on Vinyl hard floors, tiles and carpet.
The hand stick produces amazing results on all surfaces and drastically helps keep the dust and my allergies at bay. 10/10 for satisfaction.

Do not waste your time And money if you want to use this as your main vacuum. I bought this vacuum on Saturday at Godfreys in Fountain Gate. The salesman seems to be pushing it more than the Dyson. So after minutes of persuasion & $749 later my husband and I bought it.Took it home Charged for 3.5 hours and can only used it for 15 minutes max for both 2 batteries. I tried again and again but it was frustrating that I can’t even finish one whole room. I went and returned it today and the salesman refused to give me a refund. Told me I could on...ly either exchange it for another item but I cannot get my money back. With persistence and couple arguments and me showing the salesman consumer affairs law, I finally got my money back. It is frustrating and waste of my time.
We have just purchased this Stik Vac from Godfreys' at $899 with a $499 trade in so a $400 deal, and can tell you that we are impressed with it's performance.
We have had others but not at the standard of this machine and comes with a 2yr warranty.
This unit is easy to clean by taking all the filters off leaving it completely bare to clean. It has a washable filter sponge and a replaceable disposable filter. I must mention that there is another small round filter in front of the motor fan that can be lost or mislaid if not noticed, to me this ...
Questions & Answers
Can I Purchase the motor for the powerhead separately
i have dismantled the powerhead as the roller was not turning and found the motor is faulty
Unfortunately the motor for the powerhead is not sold separately, the whole powerhead would require replacement.
Replacement powerheads can be ordered through your nearest Godfreys store or over the phone by calling 1800 815 270.
The Wertheim Team
The replacement powerheads are $129.95.

Do both batteries charge at the same time in the charging dock ?
The batteries for this machine don't charge at the same time, the one attached to the machine will charge first, once fully charged the battery on the back of the charging stand will start charging.
The Wertheim Team
The lights on the roller is switching on and off well before the battery going flat while on booster.
The battery doesn't line up and click into the unit
We are sorry to hear of the issues you are experiencing with your machine.
We would recommend taking the machine into your nearest Godfreys store, with proof of purchase, for further inspection.
