Good At Cleaning Pet Hair

  • This has been great at getting the dog hair up of the wooden floors, only down side so far has been that it needs emptying after each room…
  • It doesn't pick up any hair at all (human or pet hair) The extension tube is not long enough…
    Liz10 (Argos.co.uk) - November 2014
  • No problems thus far, unless you count the wand and brush head attracting pet hair apparently by static attraction, requiring occasional removal of head…
  • This does the job, hard floors down stairs and carpets upstairs gives them a excellent clean, dog hairs were always a problem, not now, highly recommended…
    29jan61 (Argos.co.uk) - February 2014
  • It is lightweight and very manoeuvrable and and does a great job of lifting pet hair…
    DC5S2 (Argos.co.uk) - August 2014
  • Suction is great, works well on dog hairs…
    Zoo (Argos.co.uk) - October 2015

Good Brush

Five people who purchased it wrote that it had a good brush.

  • Much preferred the old revolving brush carpet head…
  • Tools easily carried on main body of machine, love the upholstery brush attachment…
  • Would prefer a brush head rather than the rubber…
  • Still gives good results, also shame the turbo brush is no longer available…
    Lady49 (Argos.co.uk) - January 2015
  • Very much like that the tools are now stowed on the handle rather than in a rear compartment as before; only very slight downside is the detail nozzle (which features a handy retractable brush) doesn't feel as sturdy as the old one…
  • Brush head not as effective…
  • 3) The main vacuum head now has a rubber brush (previously bristles) which doesn't pick up hair on a short pile carpet very well…
  • My only criticism would perhaps be that the main cleaner head assembly brush isn't that easy to switch up…

Features

Superior Technical Features

Two people who reviewed it reckoned that it had good features.

  • Very much like that the tools are now stowed on the handle rather than in a rear compartment as before; only very slight downside is the detail nozzle (which features a handy retractable brush) doesn't feel as sturdy as the old one…
  • There are some clever design features here too…
