Looks a good deal for a numatic wet & dry hoover. I have one myself and it's brilliant, great suction, big wet capacity and can be used without a bag.

I think stock is limited but Shrewsbury and Chester both have stock for collect in store.

Would this be any good for carpet cleaning? I know Numatic have a special machine for carpet cleaning but £££ . Has anyone ever used a Numatic Charles to suck up the water off a damp shampooed carpet and if so did it turn out ok? Thanks

Super Hot deal! Mine is now four years old and showing no sign of wear. Great for car, carpets & even laminate floor etc.. (providing it has all the usual attachments). Very powerful suction wet or dry.

I have a question, and its not to get fanboys out. Ive always seen professional cleaners using Henrys!! I have not been able to find a good vaccum cleaner forever now. I dont want to spend dyson like prices. I am quite curious about the Henry/Hetty etc variety. Can some one tell me how do these differ from the regular 1800/2100W Vax/hoover/Samsung/Dysons!!
I would really liek to know. I have a very very hairy house, and all the standard HEPA ones need comstant filter cleaning (once or twice every hoover). Wondering if the numatic ones are better?
HELP!

I had loads of vacuum cleaners and nothing has come close to the hetty i brought about a year ago. They are quite simple so you dont get bits falling off like my old dyson and the suction is excellent.They are not very good on carpets though.

If you use a bagged vacuum cleaner then you will not need a motor filter. Apparently Miele are the market leaders as their machines do not release ANY dust back in to the air apparently. Dysons are bagless so you will need to clean the filters. AFAIK, not all of the filters on a Dyson are user washable. I'm not sure if this is the case with newer models but the fact that Dyson are not being upfront about it in their specs is something that worries me. It is also well known that Dysons use cheap plastics and some of the attachments and accessories don’t last long.

If you are looking for a HEPA cleaner then you probably have allergy sufferers in your home. They wouldn't like using a bagless one because there is no clean way of emptying them.

I have had my Henry for about 8 years, my Mum had it for about the same before me. However only last week did I discover it had a filter and you could wash it.

It has made a difference to the suction but nothing drastic. Goes to show how long the filter can go for though!

I am currently considering an airohead for my Henry as it helps pick up hairs.

I also have George (?). He can also be used as a normal vacuum but because of the faff of swapping bits about I only use him when shampooing the carpets. Good job he does as well.

What's the point of a vacuum cleaner if it's not good on carpets? It's only because of carpets that we need vacuum cleaners in the first place. Hard floors can be swept and/or mopped easily. Vacuum cleaners only need to do one thing - suck, and if the suction is excellent how can it not be good on carpets?
#26
These are rubbish on carpets due to no rotating brush, they just leave the dirt in your carpet.
#27
is that true on carpet

could say the same about dysons, and they really are pants.

ive just got a henry, beats all the dysons ive ever had.
#29
Unless you really need the wet-n-dry I'd stick to the Henry because it has a very good robust cord rewind - this Charles chap just lets it all hang out and we wouldn't want that.
#30
thanks!!
#31
Carpets! Well cars are all carpet flooring, so would you say this is no good for the car? And is the silly charles mark and smiley face a sticker, can they be removed?
#32
Ok so my house has carpets.. no issue with allergies as such!! I was originally thinking of Henry, but the bag changing, well I wanna avoid that. Can any of the numatic ones be used with out a bag?
The rotating carpet brush, how much is that extra??
#33
Calm down dears - it's only a very basic vacuum cleaner (with a silly face on it)!
#34
I have a airohead on my hetty and it does make a difference. However the airo head is not so good on hard floors. Even so hetty is fab and I would not change. I have a dog/cat/husband... and several children.
You can use hetty bag less but I dont, I have a washable bag from flea bay, which is quite good enough.
#35
get the turbo brush copy from ebay for around £10.. its very similar to a dyson we had. can confirm they are greatr at picking up any dirt from the carpet including hair.
#36
you got a link for the brush copy ?
#37
Nice deal thanks! Still in stock at Chester and Llandudno.
