Thanks to an earlier posting by simate I managed to find a link posted by mike1212 and barneybar whereby the Bissell Lift-Off is available for £49.95 incl. P&P.
Ordered one last week after my Dyson died and it turned up this morning. Really chuffed with both it and the quick turnaround from the supplier.
When clicking on link, you'll need to scroll approximately 3/4's of the way down the page.
Following text copied from simate's original posting:
The Bissell lift-off Vacuum cleaner utilises the latest in vacuum technology by giving you 2 vacuums in one.
With its ability to separate into a smaller more managable vac with the "Grab and Go" handle, and its own stair cleaning tool you will find cleaning those normally hard to reach areas a breeze. When combined with its base unit it provides powerful suction with its dual motor system. You can tell when its time to empty the Bissell Lift-Off by looking at the easy empty clear view window. It also comes with a telescopic floor nozzle which means no more stooping and a 30ft cord so no size room will be out of reach.
HEPA media filter, plus 2 other filters.
Easy empty dirt container.
Extra wide powered rotating brush.
7 height adjustments.
Deluxe stretch hose, with telescoping extension wand.
Combination upholstery tool and dusting brush, stair cleaning tool and crevice tool.
