Need a new Hoover. The reviews look very good,what are people's thoughts?

Love mine. Less than half the price of a Dyson. Less pretty but works better.

Yes yes yes! The hose is a pain when you're storing it but no worse than any other drag around one. The suction is amazing.

a miele is better, have had both.

Henry is fab

Henry changed my life. And my carpets. I just take his nose off to store him. DC love him too, so much so that they like to get him out, set him up and vacuum for me!

I think I must be the only one who hates the little red big eyed sod. We had one as a teenager at my dads. The things pipes would forever fall apart whist I was hoovering. I still bare a grudge for when it's horrid metal pipe bit fell mid hoover on to my broken foot. I sat and howled and cursed and swore I would get revenge on the little bugger.

My dad still possesses the cretin though and raves about him being the best vacuum he's owned. I like Miele and Dyson personally.

Was given the orange one. It is a good Hoover, suction as good as the dyson but the polea keeps coming apart which is a pain, the orange bit falls over and gets tangled up a lot. Storage of the hose is fine with an ikea Hoover holder thing on the wall.

I love mine. But it has been improved 1000% by adding in the orange aero thingy attachment , which costs about £25. Plus a "complete set of tools" for £5, both from Amazon.

I find the air thing much much better for picking up cat hairs etc. the tools are worth it as Henry doesn't come with its own.

What I like about the Henry is that the suction is really reliable. The bag practically never needs replacing as it Is huge- maybe two a year, and my house isn't small.

I used to have a Dyson and was forever unblocking it. And a Miele - or was it a Bosch-which lost suction for one reason or another.

I've now had the Henry for two years and I'm happy with it. And it was really cheap too, at about £100, plus now the tools I've described above.

Finally gave up on getting through numerous vacuums and got a hetty - and love it. Don't have any problems with hose coming off and it's hose is long enough to do my stairs whilst hetty sits at bottom

I have a 14 year old Henry, and when he finally dies I'll buy another. Although hopefully that won't be for a few years yet. For the money I think they are fab.

Oh and mine is great on dog hairs and also brilliant at eating up all the dust created by our wood burner. He is aloof wry good at dusting shelves with the brush attachment.

Love mine grin

It is very good especially if you have young DC's who create also sorts of mess, it fine sucking up anything that will fit, we lost a few socks at the beginning and a small car (...toy one obv).

It's just a bit big and hefty, I used my Mums Miele and I was a bit envious, however I think hers would die if it received the same treatment that the Henry gets.

Allinafankle Sun 23-Feb-14 12:35:24

I came on to MN just now to ask about vacuum cleaners. I LOATHE my Henry! Wish I'd never set eyes on him. angry I've only had it about a year but I'm looking for a replacement as it's absolutely useless. I read hundreds of reviews before I bought it, every one saying how great it is and all my friends who own one agree. Maybe I've just got a faulty one.
Sorry! grin

minesapintofwine Sun 23-Feb-14 13:19:30

Definately absolutely love my Henry. Suction is great really powerful and never loses. Hose long enough to do whole stairs. Had numerous vacuums this has been the only one that coped with dog hairs (inc. over ones that are designed specifically for pets hair) and now 2 2 year olds and still doing well. I would never buy anything else.

Mutley77 Sun 23-Feb-14 13:41:25

Is brilliant and such good value for money... Never had a problem. V reliable and c an deal with builders rubble too, most builders have them and 2 of our previous Hoovers were broken during building work and the associated clearing up!

Graciescotland Sun 23-Feb-14 13:49:51

Love my henry too. Poor thing will take any amount of abuse, cheerios, peas, hair, dust from open fire, and keep going. Toddler forever climbing on it and it seems fine.

Janorisa Sun 23-Feb-14 14:00:10

The suction is fantastic, but ghe hose on mine keeps popping out when I'm vacuuming. It's so much better than the Hoover that came with the rented flat.

I really loved my Miele before a house fire got the better of it.

Graciescotland Sun 23-Feb-14 16:10:11

My friend had the same issue as Janorisa but the new ones screw on so they don't pop off. Also buy your bags off ebay seven quid for ten fabric bags.

I love mine!

Absolutely hate Henry, Miele is by far the better hoover, really. I'm highly qualified to rank them, I'm a cleaner. grin
