I got this when this deal was on a couple of weeks ago. Seems i must be lucky. I have only used it on carpeted floors but i am really pleased with it. The suction is great and it's simple enough to empty. Pick cylinder out, push the slider, click back into place. Takes less than 20 seconds. Contrary to previous comments, i also found it easy to use on the stairs.
Absolutely fantastic vacuum. Best I've ever had even against Dyson/Vax etc. Wouldn't be without it. Light and easy to use and excellent suction. Would personally recommend
I hate mine. It’s awful. Can’t even pick a raisin up. A £1 brush is better than this.

Yep.
Must admit, I got suckered in to buying the MK1. Hardly use it as cleaning it out is a pain in the proverbial. No real results on non-carpeted flooring.
Damn that "I want to break free" advert. Parted me from my money.

Agreed. We have this and the handheld and they are useless. The handheld moreso than the upright.

Cleaner at work uses this, swears by it, but then he does have a potty mouth
Absolutely rubbish to pick any rubbish! Avoid!
Can only say my MK1 is brilliant.Very powerful and easy to empty .Can only think negative comments are due to not cleaning the filters and brushbar.Plenty of family friends own one with no negative comments.
I own a dyson handheld which IS rubbish poor charge run time and no suction .

I have the latest version and the handheld and they are both great and pick up well on carpeted floors and ceramic tiles. Not sure why the earlier negative comments.

The MK1 air ram didn't have the air-lock flap that's why it's next to useless on non-carpeted floors, it just flicks things around the floor.
CEO guy's a bit of a wide boy. When asked to return for the newer MK2 model, I was told to 'vac off'.

Its because of human error .People forget that it needs some maintenance eg Clean filters ,brushbar .Astounding that some have said it's hard to empty as its compacted into 2 tight compartments and takes about 5 seconds.
Only known fault is the plastic cog can shear if it gets jammed but easy diy repair and new aluminium ones available on eBay .. Would definitely buy this but still going strong after 3 years .
I also bought one when the deal was on a couple of weeks ago. I love it! With a large black dog and a long haired cat, having a light vacuum that I can get around the house daily is brilliant. It picks everything up and is easy to empty!

I got mine last week..... It's brilliant as a 2nd Vac. It's not as good as my corded shark but it does pick everything up from carpets, laminate, tiles etc when a full on hoover isn't needed
Some idiots on here that don't know how it works properly...

Pushing forwards picks up the large bits then going backwards over the same spot picks up the smaller bits of debris. It's the AirLOC system. That's how it's intended to be used, by design.

Honestly people, it's not difficult. You've just been using it wrong. And this is an absolute bargain.

Sounds like we have some dyson sheep on here, I'm sure they say the same about Apple with smartphones.. which are also overrated. Brand snobbery.

These 'idiots' as you put it, maybe realise that a vacuum is meant as a tool to facilitate their lives and not a lifestyle replacement.
It's a vacuum cleaner and as such should suck in the right way.

I am talking about the MARK ONE AIR-RAM. Is that clear dear? Put your reading glasses on and turn your hearing aid up to max.

THE MARK ONE did not have the air-lock front flap. Instead, it had what appears to be the first signs of the Air-lock idea, consisting of a single squeegee blade approximately half way on the underside of the vacuum cleaner.

It's a vacuum cleaner. The same type of contraption that I somehow manage to repair by myself from the age of 10. Starting off with the Hoover Junior, then progressing to Panasonic's, Electrolux's, Vax's, Miele's and now GTech's.
When things go wrong, you dismantle them, you clean them and you can see for yourself where your money has been spent and whether there are good engineering principles in use, or if it is just style over substance.
GTech's are somewhere in between. They are not at all complicated, but nor do they offer bullet-proof build quality.
Nick Grey used to work at Vax, learnt a few things whilst he was there and THEN set up his own company so that he could market vacuums made in PRC off the coat-tails of the noise and glamour generated by chinny reckon I'm dumping the UK in favour of the far east Sir Dyson.
He's no Brunel of the vacuum world, and nor are his products finely tuned instruments of domestic cleaning.

The only thing "I just realised" is that spending time on forums making a comment is bound to attract some smart@rse who thinks their brand of sarcasm could be construed as clever.
Do you put Queen I want to break free when you vacuum your residence? 'Cause it sounds like you are overly infatuated with the Gtech. Afterall vacuuming is meant to be a simple chore. If you have to think of a strategy how to clean your home, you might as well give up your job and allow OCD to flourish.
The better the machine, the less time you spend doing the chore or maintaining the machine to make sure it can do the chore.
Cleaning the GTech Mk1 AirRam is far too time-intensive if you want to look after the machine so that you stand a reasonable chance of cleaning your home. The AirRam Mk1 only performs well on carpets. Anything else and it becomes time to play "CHASE the RICE CRISPY".
I ain't got time for that. Comprendé ?


And, the so called air-lock on the Mark 2 Air Ram is a cheap component engineered to wear out, relying on friction caused by a rubberised edge that drags itself like a clubbed foot, in order to create a partial seal on smooth surfaces in the hope it will capture the dirt or spilt gravy granules.

I fail to see why people applaud this product so much. It's so inexpensively made it's unreal. It only makes sense when you compare it financially to Dyson's greedy RRP's - and his vacuums are not that amazing either. Style over substance using polycarbonate or polythene plastics - hardly the last word in durable materials.
The whole bagless thing isn't there for the consumer, it's there so that the brand can reduce its costs. It no longer has to convince retailers to support stocking of parts and accessories, the net result is that the manufacturer is more in direct contact with the consumer. More replacement spare parts are sold to you or your house get's dirtier.
Dyson took the direct relationship as an opportunity to fleece his product consumers. GTech is just a little less greedy, otherwise, he's just doing the same thing. Let's see how much he wants when the battery gives up the ghost. Then you'll be saying "what?" £50 for a battery!?" You greedy B@5trd Mr Grey. But it will be so far into the future, that you'll have lowered your guard and happily buy YET another vacuum cleaner. Have a check of either brand's spare parts prices then you'll understand their game.

As far as I can see, there's only a handful of honest products out on the market and none have a UK born entrepreneur at the helm.

Could you please recommend a good not to expensive lightweight vac …Could you please recommend a good not to expensive lightweight vac please,many thanks!


What surface will you mainly vacuum?
If it's carpet this reconditioned GTech at the price is pretty good value, but you'll need a different unit for the stairs and high to reach places.

I've been leaning towards Miele over the last 5 or so years because they are no fuss brand. All come with 2 year warranty. All corded. Most if not all, come with stainless steel extendable tube. They're made well, they get the job done and you don't have to hang it on a wall as piece of domestic jewelry.

Miele have a useful starting point that helps you on your way to deciding which product range suits you best.
miele.co.uk/dom…ZST

What you need to think about:
Do you need just an upright or a multi-purpose cylinder?
Size of property - length of cable or do you need cordless to get everywhere?
Range of tools that you need - if you've got carpets, you'll want something with a rotating brush bar.
Bagged or Bagless? Bagged = extra spending on bags, but cleaner, less hassle to maintain.
Do you have pets or suffer from allergies? - You'll need extra filtration.


If you've a small to medium sized property with mainly parquet or tiled floors, Miele's C1 Compact Powerline is a pretty good deal when it's on offer at £120 or below.
Not all that great on carpet flooring though, due to its lack of a rotating brush-bar head. I bought one on a HUKD offer of £99.99.
Compact and powerful.

If you want one vacuum that does the lot, look for Miele's Cat & Dog cylinder packages. Come with a multitude of different floor heads to help take the guesswork out. They also do "Total Complete Allergy" packages which goes one step further and should mean you've got every type of job covered plus even cleaner than clean air courtesy of multi-stage filtration with a final HEPA filter.
Any of their vacuums has multi-stage filtration. You can also change most cartridges to improve the filtration from normal, to Odour or to HEPA level filtration.

C2 Cat & Dog:
Amazon have it at the same price as Marks Electrical who have it for £204.18
markselectrical.co.uk/106…way
(I bought a Miele fridge from Marks - superb service. Customer service, beyond reproach in my opinion.)

The Cat & Dog nomenclature is important when talking about Miele's vacuums. It means it comes with the necessary tools to deal with animal hairs (which typically means it comes with a multi floor head AND a rotating Brush-bar floor tool - so carpets can be easily taken care of - works really well. Comes with an odour neutralising air filter cartridge dubbed Active Air Clean - so pet stink is kept to a minimum. You can upgrade to a HEPA cartridge if need extra defense against airborne allergies.

Miele COMPLETE C3 POWERLINE Cylinder Vacuum Cleaner £159.99.
freenetelectrical.co.uk/mie…er/

Set a Miele alert on HUKD so that you can get one at the best price.

Amazon do a cheap cylinder vacuum for £39 (which JL look to have a suspiciously similar looking JL&Partners version for £99).


If I had to buy again, I'd grab a C2 or C3 with all the accessories as part of Cat & Dog package when on promotion, making sure it had the power brush head and parquet floor brush head, plus the 2in1 head they all come with. (Miele do promotions a couple of times a year on their website). I'd use the C2 or C3 as the main vacuum.
Then a C1 compact Powerline (which can use tools from any other Miele) for tidying up between main cleans, leaving it within easy reach. I wouldn't spend more than £100 on the secondary every day convenient cleaner. Then perhaps a small rechargeable for breadcrumbs and spilt cereals for less than £40.



Miele introduce models only when something has had a drastic redesign and not every year like Dyson does. So Miele's prices are much more stable. When you spot a good deal, run it past pricespy.co.uk to see what else is going on and camelcamelcamel.com for pricing history.


I bought the Gtechs as part of a two pack deal. The one I use most is the handheld multi, but I can't justify the money I spent on them for the amount time use I get from them. When they fill up, the whole dismantle, dust cloud in the bin. Nah, not for me.
It was a fad.

Every year James Dyson releases a new vacuum using colours as a way of discerning it from the last gen product. With small tweaks to the battery longevity. The latest V10, the battery is part of the unit, so if it dies, you can't just swap it out like you can with most other brands. Not heard great things about how rugged they are.
Taking into consideration the amount of time it takes for designing, tooling and production, is this guy dreaming up new ways of cleaning your home every few months or is he just steadily releasing products as he tweaks the design? If he is such an engineering genius, why doesn't he just go all out and design a good machine from the beginning? It smells far too much of marketing hype. Since Dyson turned up, you can either buy cheap or expensive. The middle ground has shrunk a heck of lot thanks to Sir Greedyson.

Miele makes sense in that middle ground. They work really well, but you're not paying STOOOOOOOOOOOOOOPID prices that most people have succumbed to as the fee to keeping up with the vacuum Jones'es.

Quite simply if you can't read, get off the internet forums, or at the very least, stop posting on them.

You made an unprovoked comment bordering on an insult, and about what? A vacuum cleaner.
You then followed it up with another condescending remark which took you over a day to conjure up.
Is this how you get your kicks? Staying up late, drinking WKD, jerking off and posting on forums to insult people just before midnight.

...And you talk to me about life story.

You do realise it's knobs like you that kill off anything informative on the internet.
Mind you, it'll allow for more of the video content you seek as a substitute for, what was Coke's slogan, "the real thing".

Go have a WKD and back to your life telling people how to use a vacuum.

The one I use most is the handheld multi, but I can't justify the money I spent on them for the amount time use I get from them. When they fill up, the whole dismantle, dust cloud in the bin. Nah, not for me.It was a fad.Every year James Dyson releases a new vacuum using colours as a way of discerning it from the last gen product. With small tweaks to the battery longevity. The latest V10, the battery is part of the unit, so if it dies, you can't just swap it out like you can ith most other brands. Not heard great things about how rugged they are.Taking into consideration the amount of time it takes for designing, tooling and production, is this guy dreaming up new ways of cleaning your home every few months or is he just steadily releasing products as he tweaks the design? If he is such an engineering genius, why doesn't he just go all out and design a good machine from the beginning? It smells far too much of marketing hype. Since Dyson turned up, you can either buy cheap or expensive. The middle ground has shrunk a heck of lot thanks to Sir Greedyson-alot.Miele makes sense in that middle ground. They work really well, but you're not paying STOOOOOOOOOOOOOOPID prices that most people have succumbed to as the fee to keeping up with the vacuum Jones'es.

You sound like you have issues.


Sounds like you're running low on anything else better to do in your life other then patronise people you don't even know to get a rise out of them, from the safety of a computer screen when you get home for the day.

Seems the conversation has derailed a bit here...

Ordered this and used it for the past couple of days. I had no expectation of this being a vacuum replacement, but bought as an upgrade of my Gtech carpet sweeper. In that sense it does a very good job.

It doesn’t do edges great but as a convenient quick cleaner in between vacuuming, it is effective.

One minor annoyance over my previous sweeper is there is no dock for charging. It’s also not clear if you can leave this permanently plugged in or if this will cause issues for the battery. Anybody know?

How ironic
I heard from customers who have own the MK1 that it's a good product to begin with but over time it's ability to vacuum deminshes. Also the quality of materials isn't fantastic.

Exactly. Finally someone who isn't brainwashed and sees reality.
The brush central bar core piece of plastic is like it's made from chocolate, god forbid a piece of string gets wrapped around, it melts a groove into it.
No wonder Gtech advertises spare parts so obviously on the webpage.

Anyone want to buy a pristine AirRam K9 MK1, any takers?

Take a look at this deal, I think it covers pretty much all scenarios.
