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 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”.

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.


Performance

Fairly High Vacuum

With a vacuum of 200 kilopascals, the Buddy II 12 has one of the higher vacuums amongst high maximum input power vacuums of this age. The average vacuum of high maximum input power vacuums that were released more than two years ago is 42kPa, and the vacuums range from 17kPa to 250kPa.
