Great for them. Henry is the best hoover I've ever used - even better than a dyson and certainly more robust. They last forever!

Dammit!! I looked for ages for a deal on one of these and ended up paying £99.99 at Argos!! They are great though!! I have loads of stairs, laminate floors, tiled floors, carpet, rugs and big hairy dogs and it copes with it all brilliantly!!

They're fine until you try to put them away! Pipes and tubes wiggling all over the shop!! Ours has been relegated to the garage specifically for the purpose of vacuuming the car - at which the Henry is rather good. I would have thrown the blasted thing away, but as per the quote above... They last forever!!! :w00t:AAARRRGGGHHH!

Our old one was relegated to DIY and fire duty when we got a Dyson and it still managed to outlive it despite all those nasty jobs we gave it to do. When that Henry finally broke as well, we had no hesitation getting another. I think a lot of people are fooled by the face but they are very, very good at what they do.
#7
We have a dyson and a very very battered henry that we inherited from a builder.
The henry dumps on the dyson from a very very great height. It sucks up everything including leaves, rubble, stones
The dyson is for the trendy types, a Henry is for people that want to vacuum.

Does the Henry come with any attachments? (i.e. Soft brush for cleaning a car dashboard)

Which? gave Henry a bit of a kicking, but I noticed a builder we used once had one for sucking up brick dust. Anything that can cope with that kind of punishment must at least be very well made. Wouldn't be the first time I decided Which? reviews were al oad of tosh.
#12


Yes, that's exactly what I'm after..don't want to be scratching the car interior with the plastic hose...good to see that the accessories are reasonably priced (unlike Dyson!)

Which Review of HVR200 (2/5 on carpet)

[INDENT]Henry the cylinder vac might be cute, but his cleaning capability leaves a lot to be desired.

The HVR200 is ok on laminate floors, but that's as good as it gets. It's poor at cleaning floorboards and terrible on carpet. It really struggles with pet hair, too, doing a very poor job of sucking it up. And if allergens are a concern, this isn't the vac to help as it fails to effectively retain them.

It's easy to manoeuvre on floors but cleaning stairs is tricky; ease of use for this is poor. It's easy to empty, though, not too noisy and has a large 5.3 litre capacity.

It weighs in at 8.1kg and has a really long power cable (15.6 metres) so you can cover loads of floor without having to change sockets.

Pros: Easy to empty, large capacity, very long power cable

Cons: Very poor on carpet, poor on floorboards, average on laminate, very poor at retaining allergens, very poor at picking up pet hair, difficult to use on stairs[/INDENT]


They liked the Henry Xtra HVX200-22 though (4/5 on carpet)

[INDENT]
This smiley-faced cylinder vac is pleasantly quiet and pretty good at its cleaning tasks, but not effective enough for Best Buy status.

It's great on laminate floors but just ok at cleaning wooden floors and carpet. It's not bad at dealing with pet hair, although there are better choices for cat or dog owners. It's poor at retaining allergens, so should be avoided by allergy sufferers.

The design makes it better than most at getting into nooks and crannies; it's excellent at cleaning along walls and in corners. It has a really long power cable, too (13 metres), so you can cover lots of floor without having to change sockets.

It's one of the quietest vacs on test although it's also quite heavy at 9.2kg. However, it's really easy to manoeuvre and good on stairs. It's simple to empty, too, and has a large 4.7 litre capacity.

Pros: Good on laminate. Excellent at getting into corners and along walls. Very long power cable. Quiet. Very easy to manoeuvre. Easy to empty. Large capacity

Cons: Average on floorboards and carpet. Poor at retaining allergens. Heavy[/INDENT]


Not sure which one this deal is about. They both seem to be the same price according to Which price checker, but that's an error, the HVX seems to be around £140 while the HVR is about £90.

There's a reason most professionals use Henry. Excellent deal!

That description from Which doesnt bear witness to mine and lots of other users experiences.

The Henry has two suction levels. I bet they had it on low suction, which is for use on curtains and soft furnishings:whistling:

Henry does come with some attachments. You get a soft brush, a narrow space nozzle and a small hard nozzle with a slide on brush for doing stuff like stairs, difficult corners and upholstery. At least got these with both Henry's we've had - I'm pretty certain they're standard :)

Entirely possible, Which come across like a Dorset village WI*, I don't really rate their reviews other than for warning off dangerous things!



*though thinking about it, they would know about vac's!

We have a business that needs two cleaners every night. For years we used all sorts of hoovers, including Dysons and none of them really lasted. 4 years ago we bought our first Henry and he has just had to have new brushes fitted to the motor (Cost less than £10 and take about 30 minutes to fit with a little bit of nouse and a screwdriver)

Meanwhile staff complained that it was sexist that we had a Henry :? so this year we bought a Hetty - The girlie pink version ;-). My only complaint was that Hetty was £5 more expensive - THAT is sexist! :whistling:

2 Hours a day, 5 days a week for 4.5 years and still running - you do the maths.

The other advantage is that we buy complete boxes of the dust bags from Costco very cheaply. Every time you replace the bag you replace the majority of the filtration so Henry sucks as well as he did 4 years ago. The only other filter is a cloth one which is easily rinsed and dried.

It does come with a complete set of attachments and a couple of spare bags in the box. Most parts shops carry all of the parts in stock and replacement hoses and heads can be found really cheaply online. Everything is replaceable.

For those that want a wet and dry Vac / carpet cleaner we can also recommend George - Henry's big brother. Green and great at cleaning up everyday spills as well as proper carpet cleaning. About 180 litres of water from a broken fish tank completely sucked up inside 5 mins last year saved us a big insurance claim. :thumbsup:

Hope this helps - Good deal by the way - Just a shame we bought Hetty!

gutted went to homebase yesterday and brought mine paid £85 but its worth every penny, we hav the george cleaner and both fantastic. voted hot :)

Every time the Henry comes up on HUKD we get the same posts, Henry is brilliant, better than Dyson blah blah blah etc.

And the Henry is a brilliant hoover (use of genericised trademark allowed), I have one and I wouldn't be without it. However, I still have to have a Dyson, because the Dyson is better at carpets. YES IT IS! You see, the Henry is great at sucking, but doesn't have a powered beater brush which is essential for a proper carpet clean.

Horses for courses, chalk and cheese, they complement each other very well. I wouldn't expect the Dyson to last long if it had to regularly clean up after my DIY attempts, and I wouldn't expect my carpets to last long if they were only hoovered with the Henry.

So, the Heny is great but not without problems, unless you want to spend a very large amount of money of a powered beater head, the Dyson is the clear winner on carpets.

By the way, my Dyson is 7 years old, it's had one new hose and still works like a dream.
The Henry is 6 years old, a bit rubbed and scratched but still works.

Good shout on Costco, Hatchorder. I can confirm that a box of Henry bags costs around £17 for 100. Excellent value.

We bought a 'powered' brush head for our Henry for the carpets, the Air Turbo Head. It works off the strong suction of the hoover itself, which drives the brush. Not bad, but probably not as good as the best powered-brush vacs out there. Easy to clean though and, like the Henry itself, tough!

Thanks for that - Memory not quite what it was! :oops:

As our carpets at work are all contract grade we do not have a big issue with long carpet pile. We have a Bosch Cylinder Vacuum at home and it was top rated by Which when we bough and it has never let us down. Does not have a powered head but has been good and we still prefer bags and replaceable filters.
#29
I think this is the best hoover on the market - although i have the pink Hetty (henry's bird or mother - not sure!!) and she is brilliant too. xx
#30
Thanks for posting, got one today ,,,,, tried Dyson and other various vacuums all seemed ok but not as durable and hard working as Henry (via the parents).
Didnt buy henry years ago in spite of my mum and dad having one, but they proved me wrong (again) think we have had about four vacuums to their one Henry of about 13 years old!!! I gave in and bought one with an amazing saving,,,thanks again :)
