Buckie rated the product 5 stars and he mentioned on Amazon in October “I also have a Nilfisk GS80 (late 70s early 80s) original machine which is more robust and a very good machine which they still make as the GM80!”.

Good Size

One person who reviewed this vacuum cleaner concluded that it was lightweight. Nigel P. Buckie mentioned on Amazon “Lightweight and storage for the tools onboard” in his review of the Nilfisk Buddy II 18 and rated it as very good.
