Henry evertime. yes there are bagless. just dont attach a bag and just empty the "pot" stright into the bin.

henry-more commercial.....picks anything and everything up but more effort/expense needed with bags etc....
dysons-generally household, many break early often constly, well known for overheating.....easier to empty and look better IMO

Henry,

Dysons are over rated and problematic in my experience, They tend to over heat.

Henry all the way

you dont have to use bags, however they are the same price as what u would buy the filters for a dyson. So running costs they are the same

dyson for me, got the £100 offer from asda fab hoover!

What about Charles or Charlottes?

Our Dyson has packet up. Only bought it on reputation and 5 year warrenty. Cant find the receipt (despite it being registered) so no warrenty.


Wont be fooled again.....

Think I'll wait for a Susan. They seem to have good suction! :w00t:

Dyson for me. It picks up far more than a Henry.

Henrys are good in a commercial environment where they use carpet tiles or similar, they're cheap and more reliable so obviously a business will choose them.

Dysons on the other hand are exceptional at what they do, they just aren't as solid as a Henry. This shouldn't be a problem in the home though. Dyson are very good with repairs and spares out of warranty, you only have to call and tell them the hose has split and they'll send you a replacement hose even if you've had it for years.

At the end of the day I'd rather have something that did its job well and replace every three to five years than buy something that does an ok job but lasts forever. This is doubly important for me as vacuuming is a tedious job at the best of time so give me the best tool to do it quickly and efficiently!

Have you phone their customer services? You can pay around £65 for them to come out and service it - this includes price of any parts and they guarantee it for another year.

At least they did a couple of years ago!
They might be able to trace your purchase through your address too?

Thats what i came here to say! When we moved in to our last property nearly two years ago now a family member donated us their old miele which was already a couple of years old, and we have now been using it for just under 2 years and its still picking up as strong as ever. Changed the filters once, and i think 8 bags cost us £12 which included new filters. :thumbsup:

Dyson personally, you can get the one with a motorised brush bar. We use a Henry in work and it is crud.

It does get the bits up, but it wont condition your carpet in any way. Unless you have hard floor surfaces in your house, get a dyson. I have one for sale lol! But who would want to buy a used cylinder.

Had a Dyson but prefer my Henry, mind you I don't have many carpets mainly wood, laminate and floor tiles.

Henry/Hetty is always cheapest at Homebase particularly on 10% day which I think is this weekend coming.

dyson everytime, not sure how you have needed 3 when they have a 5 year warranty

Its under warrenty. If they are that dishonest to wriggle out of their obligations, I'm certainly not going to gift them any more money and will simply buy from another manufacturer. (Just something that annoys me tbh!)

sebo... just the best you can get in my opinion!!

'Henry hoovers', 'Miele hoovers', 'Dyson hoovers' ...

.. so what's a vacuum cleaner actually made by Hoover called, then? A Hoover hoover??! :-D

Crud.

Its a Henry Vacuum, a Miele Vacuum, a Dyson Vacuum and a Hoover Vacuum.

I've been given a Hetty for Christmas (the presents are always so exciting when you're buying a flat!!) - I know you can use it with or without the bags, but which is better? Does it clog up the filters if you use it without, or is it a nightmare to empty?

henry for me had top of range dysons in the past not a patch on henry and he was a fraction of the price

you dont see cleaners in offices pushing dysons around do you???

exactly

case closed

We use Henry's for work ( A large facilities management contract with over a 1000 properties)

But we use Dyson at home because we like the bagless design and it suits us better.
