I'm actually really tempted, but curious to how good it is at actually being a hoover rather than a hovercraft!? Although, the hovercraft part is pretty awesome.

I still have a Hoover Constellation from the 1960's, the best cylinder Hoover ever made (although it's a ball and not a cylinder). The Constellation only used 500W for enormous power, has got no wheels because it 'hovers' over your carpet like a hovercraft. The best upright vacuum cleaner ever made was the Hoover Junior which only used 250W and beat your carpet as well as cleaned it. So why do modern vacuum cleaners use over 1000W to do the same? In a time where we are supposed to save for the environment, vacuum cleaner manufactures certainly have not caught up.

Left picture: Hoover Constallation .............................Right picture: Hoover Junior

Btw, Constellation and Junior used re-usable paper bags, another environmental friendly property which is completely missing today (except for bagless).

O.K., after this little history lesson, I wonder if the Bissell is as good as the Hoover Constellation. I use the Bissell Pet Erasur (upright) downstairs and a Henry Hound Pet (cylinder) upstairs, both very good cleaners, especially for pet hair, but use between 1300-1400W.

£29.90 is a cracking price, so this must be hot. You have a 30 day money back guarantee with Bissell Direct, so there is really no risk. (I am not connected to Bissell or Hoover, just a happy customer).

But if this uses hovercraft technology doesn't that mean that all the dust and hair will be blowing about before you can actually pick it up with the vacuum? lol :-D

No, it doesn't. Every vacuum cleaner sucks air in and has to blow it out somewhere (otherwise they'd explode). Usually this done at the back of the housing. The 'Hovercraft' blows the air out at the bottom and therefore floats.

Surprisingly, there is not dust been thrown around and the air never 'escapes' from under the cleaner (if it did, it wouldn't float).

it blows it into an inflatable bag and then exit through the back... otherwise it would blow all the rubbish around the floor

You lucky person we used to have a '60s Constellation inherited from my mum. What a fantastic machine! It took 40 years of extreme use and abuse. It still ran when we got rid of it though pretty much every part had broken and the motor bearings were so worn that if it tipped over the motor would jam. It outlasted her 1980's replacement Constellation which was rubbish in comparison.

We replaced it with an AEG Vampyr - what a piece of cr*p that was. When that died (there were celebrations) we searched for another Constellation but they had become collectors pieces by then and were making too much money. Instead we bought a Numatic Henry, another classic but I still miss the effortless 360 degree movement of the Constellation. They don't make 'em like they used to.

Are you sure?
I don't know the Bissell but the Hoover blows out the bottom and doesn't blow the dust around because the ring is very low (see picture). It creates an airbubble under the hoover without needing a bag.

The reason Hoover stopped building the Constallation and the Junior is because they almost bankrupped them. They lasted too long and people never needed to buy replacements, hence their total sales went down dramatically.

No waste of energy because air needs to go through anyway (to suck in your dust)

I cleared that with the picture. Air is released from the bottom.

Best suction ever!

Poor suction only occures when you overfill the bag and/or don't clean the round cloth filter, which is clipped onto the bottom part (need to be washed regularely).
#36
Thanks OP - have ordered as I'm so fed up lugging my dyson up and down stairs. Hope its a good 'un but worth a go.
Hot hot hot

i'd like one but no one has asked the question: can it actually do a decent job at cleaning and sucking the dust up!?
#38

Exactly what was the extreme use !!! :thinking: :oops: :thumbsup:

I want one, if only to see what it does, play with it for 10 minutes, then get the dyson back out.

This model is cheap as it is discontinued by the manufacturer.
That's not a problem in itself . . . until you need spare parts which you will then find are . .. also discontinued.
Sounds interesting though!
