Had it for 1 year. Then had a burning smell

Had it 1 year. Worked well until it made a burning smell. Called Godfreys but apparently only has a 3 month warranty. Only used to vacuum car, so not used enough for it to burn out. Would not recommend buying one. Put me off buying any more products from Godfreys. The cord is non existent which I knew about when I bought it. Used with an extension cord. Worked well until it burnt out. Show details

Very dissatisfied

Bought this March 2022. After using first time unit got very hot after only a few minutes of vacuuming. It burns your hand holding it by handle.
Using in confined areas like a car means the air coming out is so hot that you need to have the unit outside. Not very convenient. Power cord length non existent so you need to carry a long extension lead wherever you go. No small vacuum head. Show details

SECOND TIME AROUND

This is our second Work Hero The first one lasted for about 5 years. It blew up through no fault of it's own. We had an electrical fault and the RCD did not work. This little vacuum was used in the house, the shed (I do a lot of woodwork etc) plus cleaning the cars. Also we have a grubby Bulldog. I have no problem with recommending the Work Hero. Show details

Too many flaws

This vacuum is 50/50 for me
Pros.. good suction, lightweight, easy to clean
Cons.. the cord is very poor quality and it gets caught up on everything and gets kinks etc in it. Plus there’s nowhere really to store the cord unless you wrap it around but I do a lot of cleaning and don’t want to waste time winding/unwinding.
The wheels underneath are terrible, it constantly tips over or runs over the cord and drags it along.
Lastly mine just blew up. I turned it on and sparks came out from where the cord comes from. Not surprisingly they only have a 6 month warranty and I bought it early this year so no go now.
I don’t think I’d recommend it unless the price was a lot cheaper. It’s too expensive for the hassle and quality  Show details

Vacuum you can't kill

Have been using vacuum to dig holes in a sandy location. Vacuums sand up 2 metre below ground. Would have sucked up well over 300 kg of sand and still works well. Best work shop vac I have ever had the bag filter is easy to clean. Great performance for so little money, it's easier to vacuum the pavers with this vacuum rather than sweeping. Would buy another one, no problem.

Recomended

Originally purchased for the shed - but use everywhere.

No bags, very large bin - very simple to use, very powerful I recommend it.

I have used Dyson and miele vacuum cleaners and this is as good, can be used everywhere. Does not loose suction does not need too be emptied for months

magic little machine

It was bought for the shed, But tried it in the house first. We could not believe the amont of fine dust it picked up after our house vaccuum. Now it gets pinched from the shed all the time. It cleans up the cars,and our mororhome seats and removes the fine dog hair, like majic. The only downside is the plastic clips that hold the canister on. They need to be tighter. Otherwise, it's perfect !

This one is ALL you need

This vaccuum cleaner has a 10 metre cord, low power 1200W motor performing suction better than that of a 2400W vaccuum cleaner. I have used three different dyson and miele vaccuum cleaners and found this Work Hero is as good as one of the dyson and easily beats the other three in picking up pet hair and dust ! No bags to buy, contents go into the large round tin which some may find emptying to be a little unhygienic because the opening is so wide. ie you don't need to empty it as often as the smaller vaccuum cleaners. I paid 160 dollars for it which is fair price for a vaccuum cleaner that does the job! It is still going strong with no imperfections although I have used it so much.

Lives up to its name

The Work Hero vacuum cleaner is very powerful and has great attachments. And no bags. It's perfect for cleaning the car! Small and easy to move around and the attachments allow you to reach places that most others don't. You do need an extension cord to use it - the cord on the vacuum cleaner is very short. Overall great for the garage, car or anywhere.

Very powerful and easy to use

No bags, simple to use, not as noisy as expected, very powerful I can't fault it. If I was to reduce any stars for anything it would be the cord is very short (but it's an industrial vacuum cleaner you're expected to byo required extension lead) and if you pull it around too fast it could topple over.

Also I found the tube to be too short for me so I have to hunch over a bit (180cm).

Hi Jan,
Godfreys should be able to help.

Does the round black sponge-like inlet filter come with the vacuum cleaner? After I purchased my vac online (along some other things that meant I qualified for free delivery) I remembered seeing that a round sponge-like inlet filter could be also purchased for around $10. But if I buy that separately now I will have to pay a delivery fee. So I would like to know if there is or isn't an inlet filter included. (I'm hoping there is and that the one offered, as a suggested add on, is just a spare.)

Sorry I am not aware of an in-line filter.

Mine came with a black filter when I purchased it.
