Great deal, love the user name too!

thanks :)

I guess you like bananas?

Last year there were more than 300 banana-related accidents in Britain, most involving people slipping on skins.

Oh I hate to be a killjoy but I looked up the which review for this cos I`m looking for a good carpet cleaner. mmm. Not too good review!!! only one star for cleaning!!!! I reckon I`ll need to pay alot more for something that will actually clean the carpets. Aaarg.

Ordered this from Marshall Ward the other day for £39 (in the sale to £69 and then used the £30 discount voucher).

Its alright for a giving the carpets a "refresh", but it struggles with any real stains/marks. Glad we didnt pay any more than we did for it.

I need a vacumn cleaner,i'm waiting for someone to post a deal but i havent seen any and there are soooo many to choose from i keep looking and then giving up..lol
#10
no onboard cleaning tools on this model,imho i would buy vax which has the tools ,great for using on stairs and the car plus better on stubborn stains,tg hughes worth a try

Vax used to be a british company with manufacturing in the uk. They went tits up and the chinese bought them and now obviously they are made in china on the cheap. I just don't think the vax china designs are as effective as the older british designs. 600 watts is a very low power motor for a vacuum. Its quite common to get vacuums with upto 4x maybe 5x that power and with a wet cleaning you need more power not less due to the weight of the water. Also its normally a single motor powering both the vacuuming and the powered brush. All the really successful wet carpet cleaners I've seen like the ones you hire have a powered rotating brush to really force the dirt out of a carpet. For an effective carpet shampooer type cleaner you'd probably want a minimum of 2000 watts I'd guess. I just can't see this working well and in a short space of time you'll probably looking for something better and this will be another pile of plastic in a landfill somewhere.

You would be better off spending a little bit more and going for the V-028 model at £84.99 from Amazon. Click here

Where have you been... this was posted this week - and one of the best offers for a LONG while! I am a Dyson fan, and I still think this Bissell is tremedous!

If readers had read most carpet cleaner & cauum cleaner threads in recent weeks, or they had ever owned one, then they would NOT be voting so highly for a Vax ANYTHING :-(

I was going to rent a cleaner to do the carpets and rugs, but maybe I should buy?

Rent a Rug Doctor, by far the better option.

I took that Which report with a large pinch of salt. We have the Vax model which they reviewed and it is far from useless, if fact it's invaluable if you've small children in the house when a stomach bug hits. Sure it doesn't clean as well as the £250 models, but it's great for removing nasty smells from carpets. we got ours for £100 ages ago and it's paid for itself several times over. My only regret is that we didn't get the model with the tools, our sofas are in urgent need of a clean.

Don't get signing up for Which, you can get useful reviews from this site. I certainly use this alot. Gives the impression this carpet washer isn't all bad -
