  • Big mistake buying this - very poor bin design…
  • The design is good.
    Wobble (Amazon) - October 2015
  • It has a tremendous amount of suction It is reasonably quiet and not that hard to drag around The supplied animal brush is great The cord rewind is very useful Unfortunately it has some really frustrating design flaws…
  • Once you have got everything out of your eyes it's now time to try to get all the dirt and fluff, etc out, this is helpfully trapped between the cylinder and the ridiculously small bin casing…
  • Interesting design…

Customers Report Difficult to Empty

  • Good Cleaner dreadful to empty…
  • It's easy to empty (but make sure it's held over a bin otherwise it will go everywhere…
    JB (Amazon) - July 2014
  • The capacity to store dirt etc is minimal forcing constant emptying, itself a difficult procedure requiring better instructions than the child-like illustrations provided (worse than a flat pack furniture maker's!
  • Emptying the bin is messy as well…
  • The worst thing is the emptying, you press the button…
  • The bin is ridiculously small and difficult to empty…
  • Every other vacuum cleaner manufacturer in the world manages to make a cleaner that doesn't cover the user in its contents when emptying, why the hell can't you?
  • For the first time, emptying the bin is genuinely the only maintenance the unit requires - no washing…
  • The bin emptying is a bit messy because the hinged lid prevents all the fluff…
  • Powerful suction, excels on carpets - bin emptying is disgusting…
    Milzy (Amazon) - July 2015
