AirRam is a new design of cordless vacuum cleaner, with mains vacuum performance. Change the way you clean your home forever. It is faster, easier and more convenient. It is ideal for use on both carpet and hard-floors, and you can glide from one to the other with no settings to change. The AirRam's powerful rotating brush bars also make it ideal for pet hair.

Cleans the average UK home twice on a single charge.

Up to 40 minutes run-time from Lithium-ion technology.

Lightweight 3.5kg.

Unlike other vacuums, AirRam collects the dirt in the head of the vacuum, compressing it into small bales. A removable tray simply lifts out allowing you to drop the dirt straight into the bin.

I'm still very dubious about these. The marketing seems very much like hype. The TV adverts for the old version, this model, made out they were the most amazing, super dooper, best cleaner there had ever been, etc, etc. If they were that bloomin brilliant why does the new model look like a complete redesign?

I've got one of these... I've had it 20 years

Looks like they are all in NW London. Maybe folks round there don't clean their homes so much!

LOL, it's new and improved! The original Dyson was supposed to be the answer to everyone's prayers, just look at the current monstrosities compared to the simplicity of the original.

Normal for Norfolk

In laws have got one suction seems superior to our dyson v6 animal, however it loses out on ease of use as it's still quite bulky.

Good price, I have the first model.keep filters clean and it works perfect.I wouldn't be without mine.

So many vacuum gangsters in the thread

I have sw02 sweeper which only lasted 2 years. Decent results though. I have a corded Murphy Richards bought for clearance from Argos for £20 7 years back. Still going strong.

So I have one as do my brother and mother and they are great although it does have a couple of Achilles heals. The battery lasts for ages, its very lightweight and what it collects off your floors is quite impressive. The problems the mk1 faces is anything that can jam it e.g. carrier bag may burns out a little plastic cog that drives the rollers. It does have a feature to detect this and shut the power off but it doesn't always work and its broken before you can reach for the power button itself. You can get a new cog for about £10 and it can be tricky to fit or a complete cog/shaft/bearings for about £20 iirc. The second problem is hair which gets wrapped around the brush roll and if not removed will melt the plastic around the bearings at each end cap or in the centre where the motor drives are.

I'm not sure if the mk2 has overcome these issues but its moved the battery from the handle in the mk1 to the base so that the top of the handle can slide collapse into the lower part of it for ease of storage. They have also improved the dust collection bin to make it more hygienic to empty.

Had one of these for a few years and it's excellent - replaced a Dyson and is at least as effective as the Dyson (but of course much lighter and completely cordless)

Have one of these the brush rollers are a nightmare to clean if they get clogged with hair once they do get clogged they don't pick things up off the floor

Got one of these, it does a great job and very easy to use. As the poster above says, the rollers do end up with hair wound around them, so you end up having to cut the hair out every now and again (something they dont show in the advert!) but overall I'd recommend it. (Had a compact dyson cleaner before, and the suction was RUBBISH)

Always have a problem for adverts for products/companies where the founder wants to be the star....
Edited by: "Gollywood" 2nd Oct

I picked one up off a local selling site for £20. I think it's great, although the power button is busted, and intermittent. Power is great, battery lasts ages.

Do you use that to do your carpets?

Sadly I have read a lot of rubbish in this thread about these cleaners. My wife has been through just about every cleaner there is. Meile Dyson & Panasonic are some of them. She has had two Dyson & they were great cleaners but they went wrong several times. I had to re connect the lead several times in spite of a loop to stop it being pulled out. Friends of ours recommended the Gtech. My wife bought the mk1 & she says it is the best cleaner bar none she has had. I would fully recommend this cleaner. Probably the best one out there.

It's called maintenance...like every machine known to man it requires looking after every now and then .Not sure which cleaner the guy is talking about who stated it's bulky ...Probably lightest cleaner on market.

Does it clean to the edges?

I have one made by Bosch but it is very similar to this, but it does not clean to the edges. Also it is a nightmare to change to the hose so I don't usually bother. Suction when the hose is attached is inadequate.

The new version of this is advertised as being able to suck up larger bits off the floor, which suggests that the old version has a problem with sucking up larger, heavier bits. I also had that problem with the Bosch.

Suck it Derry, suck it!, ah it's making a mockery of you boy! Mam you're no help behind the door! Ah no the dog's peed himself, suck it Derry, ah it's broke the motor now fer sure.

I adore my gtech certainly the most reliable vacuum cleaner I've had. I hated my 'top of the range' 🙄🙄🙄 dyson & my Henry annoyed the hell out of me, this is absolute brilliant it makes my carpets look new. I have the old animal version, I can imagine the updated versions are even better!

Kind of the point, always room for improvement (actually better), marketing opportunity (colour or number of bobbles on top) or make it cheaper to produce whilst upping the price (any Apple product).

It sucks to the edges & 98% of the time picks everything up. My wifes words. She loves it.

Tried one of these and I can honestly say I'm going to keep sucking crumbs up with my lips, it's quicker and more effective.

Iv got one that was my mums when she bought a new one and I LOVE it - I also have a dyson but I love my Gtech
