    Mr Dyson never put his money where his mouth is so I went and purchased a Shark. My cleaner thinks it's wonderful and far better than our old Dyson.

    So there you go...

    Great for eating people but rubbish at vacuuming carpets.

    How the other half live!

    Agree. Had my henry 25 years and only ever had to change the filter. Changed only because I used it for hoovering up brick dust and plaster!
    They dyson my better half bought is up in the loft, unused because it's a palaver.

    We have a Dyson and two Henrys in the garage. The cleaner always reaches for the Henry.

    We have a shark, its excellent.
    One of the few vacs that actually picks up dog hairs and the shark customer service is excellent.

    It's great fun I chase the the Cat and my girls around the living room while it cleans. Kills 2 birds with one stone.

    She doubles as my other half. I'm great at multi tasking. Give her a bit of too so saves on wages

    Another vote for Henry...

    First one 29 yrs old and still going strong in the workshop.
    10 year old one in the house is like new.

    Got an extension hose for the stairs as that's the only weak point imo.

    IMG_20191023_100004.jpg I don't have a cordless vacuum, but I do have a vacuum-less cord. I'm going to take it back though, the suction is non-existent...

    We collect vacuums! Up in the loft is a Henry. We let our daughter have our previous one when she moved out. Good vac but a pain to move around. Also up in the loft is a Miele cat & dog. Current vac of the moment is a Dyson cordless V10 cyclone. Light, good suction and easy to use. I do like the Dyson stuff - we let our son have our other Dyson cordless that was still working after about 7 years. We also have a Dyson fan and the wife has one of those Dyson supersonic hair dryers.
