Is Henry going to make me happy?

every pub in the world has a Henry.... so they must be good to deal with that amount of crap!

pageturner · 23/05/2007 14:13

Ah that's true! i've seen loads in pubs!

Time for the big one now - THE STAIRS!

when you've done those stairs, can you get me a pint of lager and a bag of nuts, please, love?

Stairs good, though a bit awkward, stopping it from falling to its death at the bottom. But worth it for the results. very good.

Right. That's enough of housework.

I thank you for your attention!

I'm on my second Henry and wouldn't be withiout him.

The first lasted over 10 years and through a house renovation with dh using him to hoover up the rubble

Also had to inform him (dh not Henry) that he (Henry not dh) was not to be used for hoovering up liquids, after I went to empty the bag and found a soggy mess.

(also good for pulling small children around on.... so I believe, have never done it myself)

Henry's are super long lasting. My mum has had hers for about a gazillion years and he's still going strong AND he's always smiling!

Glad to hear happy Henry stories oggs. The number of hours of misery I've had with substandard vacuums lately.

In fact, in the interests of consumer protection, can I just recommend to anyone wanting to purchase a new vacuum cleaner NOT to buy this one (think it was this one though we paid more!
OR
this one

Crap. Waste of time and effort. Don't bother. Get a Henry!
