There’s absolutely no doubt in my mind that having a good vacuum cleaner is half the battle to winning the war on dirt and grime in the home. I usd to buy fairly middling machines, not that many, I’ve never been overly handed with them, or had them running so often and for so long that the motors burn out. I did however get seriously fede up with one cheaper, emergency buy that proved to be absolutely hopeless and inadequate to the task. After I’d used it for about 1 week over the free waraty period, it spasrked at the plug ajnd caught fire rather alarmingly. Once I’d got oVer the shock, I ordered myself a much better top market leader machine. Oh my goodnes it came the next day, sleek, shiny and so powerful. I still love using it and the thrill of having a machine that really does pick up all the fluff, hair and mucky bits is just too exciting to contemplate. have 3 tools in addition to the main head. Each has a specific shape and works exactly as designed. It’s fantastic and I wish I’d invested in one year and years ago!
