    I like my Miele. Very powerful. Replaced a 15 year old one that only died because I started vacuuming dust and rubble from under the house with it!

    The most used one is an AEG corded pet hair vac, then we have a full Kirby Heritage II kit in the cupboard almost new, a small battery job keeping that company and a Henry in my garage/workshop.

    In the early days, my parents agreed to buying an early cylinder vac from a door to door salesman, then changed their minds. They later bought a Hoover Constellation, which lasted for decades - that was the ball shaped one, which hovered. Brilliant suction.

    Had several Dyson cleaners, currently have 2 (need them for the Retrievers). Worst vacuum cleaner I had was a Sebo.

    I'd like a small handheld unit with good suction for cleaning debris (metal swarf, cable ties, wire sleeving etc.) from out of electrical control panels while I'm building them, my current one - a Vax that was the wifes cast off for her car is useless, an old granny could suck better I'm sure.

    We bought a vax a few months back. It was useless. So took it back and got our Shark.

    We have a Vax carpet shampoo cleaner and that works wonders.

    That's where we did buy a dyson. It's good enough to clean the inside of the car, all those little bits of stone etc. It's a good little kit. Battery only lasts about 20 mins though with continued use.

    We have the Gtech K9's, very impressed with both the upright and hand held, do 40mins to a charge and have taken a fair bit of stick!.

    This thread is about vacuum cleaners, not what you get up to in your spare time.

    Got a Vax here, first one the kids used as a horse and snapped it in half, Vax sent us a replacement no quibbles, this one is going strong, had a brush bearing seize so replaced the whole assembly for about 12pounds, cord a bit shorter due to cleaner refusing to acknowledge cable doesn't stretch, but still going strong, certainly paid for itself now.
