Sebo Felix. Effective and good customer service. And solidly built

Sebo X4 Pet. We don't have pets but the boost function is very useful. Best vacuum cleaner I've ever owned. Copies with all floor types brilliantly.

Shark duo - I don't even bother to charge my stain since I got the shark, it's unbelievable!

Shark lift-away

So you don't want to hear about my bastard Dyson then ?

Another vote for Shark lift away here too. I can’t see me ever going back to a Dyson.

I have a Seno felix and find it unwieldy and heavy and regret buying it. Prior to that I had a little LG which I had to replace once I could no longer get spare LG bands for, I could manhandle it up 3 flights of stairs easily. The Sebo probably is more powerful but the motor is high, not on the floor part of the hoover, so is top heavy making it harder work to use imv.

Dyson v6 cordless. Absolutely essential for a 3-floor townhouse. So lightweight.

Shark lift away.

Our Miele cat and dog has been brilliant.

Sebo 4x are amazing

Miele C3 Cat and Dog, now I may not have pets but I have long hair and it is fab for getting human hair off the carpet.

I love the variable suction choices, and that I can use my foot to choose them so don't have to bend down. The tools are stored on board and the automatic cord rewind helps me to be lazy after I have finished vacuuming.

I have previously owned a couple of Dysons, but this Miele is absolutely fantastic.

I love my Henry. He eats everything!

Marketed for commercial cleaners, but I bought mine second hand and it has suction so powerful it makes a Dyson look like a 60 a day smoker.

Vorwerk Kobold VK200, but they’re £1499. For the mid range, Sebo X4/x7

DramaAlpaca Wed 23-May-18 21:07:38

My Miele C3 Cat & Dog is the best one I've ever had.

Love my Shark, it’s the best vacuum I’ve ever owned and I’ve owned a few! Really powerful and easy to use.

Please don't review a dyson. Tired of hearing everywhere how brilliant they are when they aren't all that. I sold one which was rubbish and bought a Miele which is way better. I have now got a dyson cordless which is disappointingly mediocre, doesn't pick up on edges or anything bigger than a grain if sand for instance, is annoying to empty (dirt bloody everywhere), and periodically decides to just empty itself on the floor. It also gets clogged every few months and you have to sit in the floor digging dirt out if the crevices in its head. Never had this with any other hoover. Very poorly designed.

Henry! He's a hardy bugger, and always so happy.

Tinkobell Sat 26-May-18 08:56:57

Henry. They rarely break and don't damage the pile on Berber carpets...rotating heads do!

Miele C3 cat and dog. Best Hoover we've ever had.
