Currently have two dysons, one old pull along and a newer upright, both done a reasonable amount of service. Both have given up the ghost. Bought a new Vax upright but its been put together with spit and is going back as it won't now remain upright
Can anyone recommend something suitable for small 4bed house with carpets upstairs and wood floor downstairs? I am really disappointed about the Vax as it was powerful and light and although it did feel really flimsy.
I've just bought my first Miele (S8310) and it's wonderful. I thought it would be too heavy but it just scoots along behind behaving itself.
Had a Dyson upright before (fine but heavy and awkward) and a cheepo bagless cylinder (a PITA to clean the filter every time to keep it sucking).
Love my Miele and it stores really well, there's a slot on the side to keep the tube thing upright and it stores really small. Amazing suction, great on carpet and feels kind of cushioned on hard floors. Other machines felt a but scratchy if you know what I mean.
I have the Miele animal one (we have a dog and a cat) and it's equally good on carpets, rugs, laminate and vinyl. The only downside is having to remember to buy bags again but then I always hated emptying the Dyson every bloomin' time I used it.
