This little legend is £98.10 at AO on ebay with code PAPA10

We've got one that lives under the stairs. He's a nice chap, that keeps the floors in our house clean. He's bagged, but capacity is decent at 6L. Sometimes we have a laugh and wind him up, but this is purely to get his 10m power cord back in.

I believe he wakes up in the middle of the night and heads to the casino, I just have to prove it...

Under £100 though, not too shabby at all.

Okay, I will

These new ones are now only 620W, which is ok for wood floors, but I find carpets need more juice. I think the old models were 1kW.

Oh Henry, you are such a cheeky boy
This deal sucks!
Shop Vacs don't have the watt restrictions now so if you want some grunt get one of them. Domestic vacs have the power restrictions

They are a complete nightmare to use on thick carpets. Much better for solid floors.
Picked one of these up in Tesco’s a couple weeks ago for £100 can be very difficult to push in carpets much easier to drag it towards you. Have noticed that the carpet setting picks up more on wooden/hardened floors, any one else experienced this?
I bought the Miele c3 for £152 instead.
We have an Henry already but the Mrs wanted another for upstairs , she bit my head off when I told her I bought the Miele as she loves henry

The main floor tool isn't the best for the carpets. You're better off not using that setting. On wooden floors it's more effective and prevents the metal part of the tool from scrapping on the wooden flooring.

Different ball game for that kind of money tbh. Miele C3 is far better in fairness.

They last forever, when I worked in hotels they had henrys and they were in use 10+ hours a day needing nothing but brushes, new cords and duck tape to hold the hose together.

We have had ours donkeys years and it is still going strong.

In the same time mates have had loads of hoovers. Dysons only use to last a few years. Plus Henrys are still made in the UK, worth paying a few extra £ to support UK manufacturers rather than a tax cheat like Dyson.

Buy cheap, buy twice.

This deal expires soon, but now days The Henry's are only 620w model. The trade model was originally 1200w but can still be found for sale 2nd hand. Pushing down the brush will work best on hard floors , don't push it down for carpets.
Geebsie give me the link please, I see non original numatic bags on eBay ?

Not sure why people love Henry, unless as you stated, it's because they last forever?

In my experience, both the domestic and shop Henry vacuum are pretty similar, utterly trash and picking up most things, and especially not hair - unless it's on a wooden floor.

Most vacuum which come with a spinning brush are superior, especially Dyson - but yes, damn Dyson have built-in obsolescence in that either the battery will die after a few years, or in the case of both corded and cordless, the spinning brush stops rotating are a few years - and the brush alone costs in excess of £50+ !

I disagree. They do not 'last forever'.

I sometimes work for a local estate. They use Henry vacuum cleaners and have done for a number of years. Over those years a pile of broken units has been steadily accumulating.

Myself and the site electrician had a look at them a couple of months ago to evaluate repair. Most were found to have burned out or faulty motor units.

I can confidently say the definitely did not lasted forever!

As in my post, they last forever with basic cheap repairs.

95% of that stack could be fixed with £4 new brushes for the motor. A brushed motor will never run truly "forever" without repair because the brushes have to be sacrificial to protect the commutator. They are designed like that because brushes are cheap and easy to replace.

The rest could be fixed by fitting a £25 new motor. Both 15 minute repairs.

I'm surprised your electrician didn't tell you this. It's how things used to be, if an appliance breaks you get someone to repair it rather than sticking it in a corner and throwing your hands up. My current washing machine is a decent Bosch I paid the bloke at the dump £5 for. The reason it had been scrapped? Blocked filter. Someone had paid £300 for a new machine rather than five minutes working out what was wrong.

If you don't want to repair them please let me know and I will pay you £20 each for them, easy money for me to repair and sell them on eBay.

Yes, I am aware of motor brushes. It was starter windings and armatures on the motors on these particular units which were shot. Try and get a motor rewound economically nowadays

The average cost of a Henry - shall we say £100? The average cost of a OEM motor specific to each model we have here - £35. Labour - 2 hours (definitely not a 15 minute repair) at £30 per hour = £60. Total amount £95.00.

My main business at the estate I work for is dedicated to reviving broken equipment, I do everything possible to prevent scrappage. Sometimes, unfortunately, repair is not economical nor time effective.

Replacing Henry motor is seven screws and two spade terminals. Very easy. Though to be honest if youve already tested the motor you've spent more time then it would have taken just to replace it.

When I used to work as an engineer we hardly ever used to test non-spinning £25 motors beyond checking the brushes and continuity checking the wiring because the cost of testing and fixing the motor would invariably be more than £25. Stick a new one in, 20 mins later you'd be back in your van.

Maybe you should watch YouTube. Step by step, although I guess you're talking rubbish because testing and replacing are two sides of the same coin.

Presumably just out to knock a UK manufacturer who actually makes an effort to make their products repairable. Perhaps you can suggest the £100 vacuum which is as reliable?

Oh dear, another YouTube 'expert'. What a load of flannel. Seriously!

If you chose to read my dialog using rational thought, you would soon learn I am not slating Henry vac's. All I stated was they do not last forever.

Your mindset works very much like Trigger from only Fools and Horses. Do you know the episode in question? It's the one where Trigger brags about a broom he has owned for many years. It turns out it has had numerous handles and heads replaced over the years. YouTube that one Trigger!
I would like to say that Henry is the best! but it was the best, agree with the guys above that old ones were much better.
I found a Henry micro recently outside of an industrial unit where the former tennant had given up the lease, I plugged it in and hey presto it worked, saved around £137 as I nearly bought one the week before
