Need a new Hoover - advice please!

We never have much luck with hoovers, they always break down on us.
Our current one only works once my DH 'fixes' it then it stops working again after one or two uses. He is determined not to buy a new one but to keep fixing this one but it's getting ridiculous now and I am going to buy a new one.

I know very little about hoovers so I was hoping for some advice on a MN tried and tested one I can use? We have a four bed house to clean with a toddler and baby on the way. I have long hair so it needs to be able to deal with that.
Any advice or recommendations would be really appreciated please smile

Henry. Solid as fuck, steel hoses, very easy to get spares. Its the only vac I've had longer than a year, and I've had it for six or so now. Very good, and super long cord is brilliant too

I'd always recommend a Miele, they last for ages too.

Miele - proper suction.

I would recommend a Henry too, I work as a cleaner and have used several different brands. Nothing beats a Henry.

Sounds like you've got quite a lot of space to clean. What type of flooding do you have? Cylinders like Henry & Miele are great if you have a lot of different floor types. If you've got more carpets or if you prefer uprights, look at Sebo uprights. Ours is over 20 years old and has never gone wrong. It's out-cleaned a Dyson and a Miele.

I have waist length hair. I purchased the airbrush to go on my Henry what an amazing bit of kit. Henry is so robust. I want a Hetty as she's soooo pretty but DH husband says no as there's nothing wrong with Henry I've "accidentally" knocked him down the stairs, sucked up things I shouldn't and he just sits there gaily smirking at me. I WANT A HETTY!!!

There is also a hairdbrush which is for pet hair.

I think for the money it's brilliant. They must do a good job as cleaners always use them.
