11 Reasons For

Has a Brush Tool

The Buddy II 12 has a brush tool, which is unusual. Most of the other medium maximum input power vacuums that have been available for a comparable time to the Buddy II 12 do not have a brush tool.

We think you might also be interested in alternative vacuum cleaners which also have a brush tool including the Bestron Ecosenzo[plb_2508553_price], or the Philips FC832[plb_2376838_price].

Very High Vacuum Suction

The vacuum suctions of vacuums of this spec and age range from 14kPa to 210kPa. The vacuum suction of the Nilfisk Buddy II 12 of 200 kilopascals is one of the highest amongst medium maximum input power vacuums that came out around the same time as the Buddy II 12.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 200kPa suction vacuums currently available including the Nilfisk Buddy II 18[plb_2382209_price] which has better reviews.

Good Filter

A number of Nilfisk Buddy II 12 owners who reviewed it considered that it had a good filter. Lawrenzo said “I tightly wrapped this around the canister filter and it was much easier to clean off the fine dust” but despite that they gave this vacuum cleaner a rating of 60 out of 100.

Good Brush

A few Nilfisk Buddy II 12 owners thought it had a good brush. Lawrenzo said on Amazon in October last year “I already have a better brush unit, so I just need to source stronger dust bags”.

Reasonably Priced

Two Nilfisk Buddy II 12 owners who reviewed it agreed that it was cheap. Lawrenzo wrote in their review on Amazon “A desperate visit to my resourceful local electrical shop saw me come away with an inexpensive sheet filter that was meant for a kitchen hob fume extractor unit” however they rated this vacuum cleaner 60 out of 100. Lawrenzo also said “I purchased an inexpensive universal brush unit”.

Good Product Quality

One Nilfisk Buddy II 12 reviewer who reviewed this vacuum cleaner thought it was good quality. Lawrenzo said in their review of the Nilfisk Buddy II 12 on Amazon in October last year “I bought this unit based on my perceived feeling for the good quality of Nilfisk products” however they only scored the Nilfisk Buddy II 12 60 out of 100.

Good Suction

One Nilfisk Buddy II 12 owner who reviewed it mentioned that it had good suction. Lawrenzo said in their review “The canister filter soon clogged up and the unit's suction was vastly reduced” but despite that they only gave the product a score of 3 stars.

Price Has Dropped by £5.11

In the last 20 days the Buddy II 12 has dropped in price by £5.11.

Nilfisk Has Good Reviews for Its Vacuums

Nilfisk medium maximum input power vacuums have good reviews on average and across all vacuum cleaners Nilfisk is one of the superior manufacturers.

Chart

Light

Across all the vacuum cleaners of this age and type the weights range from 660g to 11kg. The Buddy II 12 is one of the lighter medium maximum input power vacuums that were launched around the same time as the Buddy II 12 (only 4.4 kilograms) amongst medium maximum input power vacuums of this age.

If you would consider a vacuum cleaner with a heavier weight then you might want to look at the Nilfisk Saltix 10[plb_2287598_price] (5.2kg), or the Philips FC832[plb_2376838_price] (4.2kg).

4 Reasons Against

Difficult to Use

One Nilfisk Buddy II 12 owner who bought it thought it did not have a good experience. Lawrenzo mentioned on Amazon “Not to allow customers to go through the painful experience of paper bags” in their Nilfisk Buddy II 12 review.

Not Good in Terms of Size

One customer concluded that it was not heavy and bulky. Lawrenzo said in their review of this vacuum cleaner “The cost was a bit heavy at Eur24 for a pack of 4” and gave it a rating of 3 stars.

Quite Short Cord Length

Comparable spec vacuum cleaners that are a similar age to the Buddy II 12 have cord lengths of between 2.5m and 15m. At only 4 meters, the Buddy II 12 has a quite short cord length compared to most of the other vacuums of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Not Cordless

Like most of the other medium maximum input power vacuums that are a similar age to the Buddy II 12, the Buddy II 12 is not cordless.

2 Other reasons to consider the Nilfisk Buddy II 12

Average Noise Level

At 74 decibels, the Buddy II 12 has a pretty average noise level compared to most of the other vacuums of a similar type and age to the Buddy II 12.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 74dB noise level vacuum cleaners currently available including the Nilfisk Buddy II 18[plb_2382209_price] which has better reviews.

If you would consider a vacuum cleaner with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Saltix 10[pl_2287598_price] (69dB), or the Buddy II 18 Inox[pl_2382223_price] (74dB) both from Nilfisk.
