    Recommend a vacuum cleaner please

    Hi. I'm looking for a new vacuum cleaner. My Hoover is on its last legs. Don't want to spend a fortune but need something that cleans carpets, stairs and hard floors well and not super noisy (I had a vax and it was so noisy I had to wear ear muffs to use it). Any recommendations please?

    All of them are loud if they aint its because the motor is weak, can't beat a Henry

    Miele is a good brand.Various upright or cylinder models available. Ive had my cylinder for about 10 years, it cleans everything from carpet to wooden floors with attachments for curtains etc.

    Probably cheaper to service your hoover than buy a lower powered device due to new legistation.

    ​I hadn't thought of that, I remember it was in the media a bit back. thanks for the tip.

    Personally can't fault Dyson. I've been using the same one for 8 years with no issues and has put up with 2 huskies.

    As for the lower powered ones, that they may be but i'm sure they will be more efficient at collecting dirt, compared with older more powerful ones. Plus smaller motor generally means quieter.

    miele, all day long.

    miele for me too

    Shark. Far better than Dyson.

    We have a neato robo one (the seabo upright was excellent but is now not used) - they work on all surfaces EXCEPT for stairs - quiet and effortless.

    Personally I would recommend a dyson, I've lent mine to a couple of friends to try before they replaced their vacs and both ended up buying one. Maybe you know someone who wouldn't mind lending you one to try out before you buy.
    In terms of the lower motor , I ended up having my last dyson insured and serviced for a couple of years because of the change. However the new dysons are built in a different way and I don't believe they have lost suction at all. Mine new one has a slider bar for suction power which I have to keep on minimum as the suction is too high if I move it up.
    We have a Henry at work, and they are fine , but not a patch on dyson , haven't tried the shark so can't comment on those. Dyson works equally well on carpets and hard floors and has a extended hose long enough for my staircase which bends around a corner without having to unplug and move. Also they have a five year guarantee and excellent customer service.
