This review is from: Vileda WindoMatic Window Vacuum, 0.1 Litre, 12 Watt (DIY & Tools)

You cannot go wrong with this, it outperforms both my Karcher and Leifheit Streakfree Rechargable Window Vacuum Cleaner (51115) as well as being a great price.

The assembly is simple you open the box and remove the charger, handset and squidgee, follow the simple instructions and in a few hours you`ll be ready to go. Instructions recommend a charge time of 6 hours but mine was ready to use, when green light shows, in less than four.

To be fair I cleaned a mirror using all 3 of my window vacuum cleaners and the Vileda was the quietest, the only one with a flexible head making it easier to get into awkward corners, and it left no streaks whatsoever. So for a lightweight, wellbuilt, easy to use piece of equipment this is the one I recommend.

Wonder if amazon will price match.

Thanks OP

If u can replace battery a few year's from now ,unlike the karcher I'd go for this, anyone know?

I c it's also click n collect so very hot deal!

spiderman window cleaner

I don't know what the hell this is? is it for Dusty Windows? obviously still going to have to buy one at that price!

Same price as Amazon

Why have B&Q called this a windowmatic its a windomatic.

You wash them with an applicator as normal, but then instead of a rubber blade and rag, you use this, saves mess and time apparently - at £25 I'll risk it.

'Windowmatic Lithium Window Vacuum'.......... good grief, cleaning you're windows is so high tech these days lol heat added

Just looked on Amazon and ordered one, saves a trip out ....thanks FERONA

Note: That review (as most of the Amazon reviews for this product) was posted through the Vine program - e.g. the person was given the product for free in return for posting a review. Take it with a inch of salt.

What you see is what you get with these. It's a cheap copy of the original Karcher vac. The Karcher one is better quality, drips less, and is just nicer to use.

Ask yourself why they have to give away the product to get good reviews ;).

Just picked one up, stuck is the most inappropriate section as possible as is usual for b&q. The vileda heat mop was next to it at £30

I know the amazon price has been quoted but it was only £30 on B&Qs website, saving £5.

Would be interested in hearing some real life HUKD reviews, I just sacked my window cleaner so this could be handy.

Ooh decisions, the Karcher one is better...but this one looks like Spider-Man....

ordered off Amazon, my kartcher broke after a year and a half, poorly made.

"you save £5.00".........

Just tried it on the shower screen, did the job very well

Amazon price matched.

Banned

Never even seen one of these

Heat cause it looks like Spiderman

so my mop and bucket, sweeping brush, dustpan and brush all look like spiderman lol, i still think it's just as easy to wash windows by hand so passing on this spiderman window vac.

Is that some kind of shades of grey thing,did he mind and is it Hessian?

Too late now for Valentine's day for the wife!

Just braught from amazon online same price with free delivery

paid £25

Very good price .ordered from amazon
thanks for posting.i need something cheap like this, to clean up my car windows.

dont forget the cashback from topcashback if you order from B&Q on line every bit helps

Thanks OP just did the condensation windows with the Vileda, I borrowed a Karcher from a neighbour a while back there's no difference between them.

had a reply from vileda fb, they said you cannot get replacement batteries for this sealed machine same as karcher version that a lot of people say battery stops charging after 2to3 years or earlier!

Thanks OP, just ordered one.

For those who want the Karcher system with cleaner accessory, it'll be on offer from tomorrow for £54 at Tesco Direct:

Usually dispatched within 2 to 4 weeks.

B&Q oap Wednesday 10% discount - £22.50 - very happy!

Anyone used theirs yet ? I have a Karcher but the water keeps getting into the air vents so the motor sounds awful.
I bought the Vileda and not at all impressed by it. The flexible head is useless and doesnt make it easier to clean windows. Plus i have to press hard on the windows otherwise it doesnt suck up the water and it still leaves streaks.Even for £25 i am not impressed with it.Most of the reviews on Amazon are from "Vine" people who get it free so of course they are going to say how good it is.
