Hi Guys,

Need a cheap and reliable hoover, any recommendations? I dont want to get into a vicious circle of buying these things and after 3 months they break...

Any ideas...around 20 - 30 quid?

thanks in advance..

cheers

Getting one for 30 quid kinda contradicts that.

We've had one of these for years. Cheap, but very solid and reliable.

You can't beat a Henry, they seem to be almost indestructable. If the world ever ends in a thermonuclear holocaust all that will be left will be the cockroaches and a few slightly damaged Henrys.

Buy a decent one that will last you years? Miele would be good but probably way more than you want to spend :p

Henry ones are meant to be very reliable, might be worth looking at one of those.

Dyson have been fairly poor at lasting in my experience.

I had one which lasted several years, someone slightly overweight fell on the thing and broke it. Other than that it was still in perfect condition, plus they don't lose suction like other ones.

Henrys are the tanks of the vacuum world, they just never seem to break down, personally I'd not touch a dyson with someone elses barge pole.

I would look at a Vax though, if you had pets etc.

Got a Vax VS-19 Swift, bit loud but sucks up fine dust, rotating brush cleans up much better than the standard head. About £60.

Why not splash out a little?
