tried mine today and very impressed. only downsides are size and weight but i guess that's same for all standard size hoovers
Ellie Phant - Agreed, but it will when the revised limit comes in - the limit will be either 800/900watts, next year sometime. If anyone wants the exact details you can find them online I am sure. All this is to combat global warming by using less electricity. I haven't bought one myself but I think tis a cracking deal if you need one.
It has a 1400w motor so doesn't come under the new regs. Mine arrived today and it is one hell of a sucker.
keejoonc - I don't know as I am not daft enough to pay more than £100 for a vacuum cleaner! So I have never used a Dyson. I note on BBC TV today that the EC is brining in new regulations to restrict the power of vacuum cleaners, to help protect the environment apparently, which may explain Bissell's sale on their website - the above model is one of their most powerful at 350 air watts.
how do these compare to dyson vacuums? obviously one is more expensive.
