Talk to me about cordless vacuums.
Mrs Squad’s a cleaner and she bought the G Tech one for us.Posted 4 months ago
She loves it. It’s great for just using to keep on top of things but we’ve got a normal Miele for doing the major hoovering.
She says the G Tech is the best thing she’s ever bought!

Minor hijack, but the op might be on board…
anyone tried the makita lxt vacuums? Cheap as a bare unit. Adds up once you buy a battery and charger. But then OP, you’ve the perfect excuse to buy a nice drill/impact driver/circular saw/sander/mitre saw/work lamp/dab radio/coffee maker….Posted 4 months agoBianchi-BoyMember
I know, proper rock n roll for a Friday night!
I’m kitting out a small gite and am thinking that a small space saving cordless vacuum would be a good investment. But, having looked locally, there is an awful lot of choice. Does anyone have one? Kind of looking for personal recommendations. Small house, set of stairs, mix of hard floors and carpets.Posted 4 months agospacemonkeyMember
In response to goldfish, I did exactly that. Bought the Makita combo drill and vacuum 3yrs ago. Drill brilliant. Charger bang on. Vacuum used virtually everyday for those convenient tidy up moments – again, brilliant but for 2yrs. Motor partially packed up so bought another.
FTR: We use a Dyson regularly for proper hoovering but the Makita is very convenient/capable for a quick once over here and there.Posted 4 months agowillejMember
We picked up a Vax Air Lift cordless upright, in their factory sale. It was £80 instead of £250, because there was a small hole in the box. We weren’t expecting great things, just for it to be adequate, but it is surprisingly good. Ours came with two lithium ion batteries and you get about half an hour of hoovering on a charge. Worth looking out for, I’d say.Posted 4 months agoMikeGSubscriber
Another vote for the Dyson one here, got a refurbished one from their factory eBay store a couple of years ago and have hardly used the upright since. Can’t quite do the whole house in one charge (medium sized 3 bed semi) but the chances of both of my girls rooms having a clear floor at the same time mean that’s not a massive problem.Posted 4 months agoyourguitarheroMember
I’ve been after one for a while – wee flat, laminate floors, cats and its a hassle getting the Henry out of the cupboard.
But didn’t want to pay the money.
Thanks to this thread I’ve now seen I can get a Bosch one for £40 that will run off the batteries I have for my drill!Posted 4 months agoyourguitarheroMember
Hmm, was a wee bit more.Posted 4 months ago
I can’t see any functional difference between the green and blue ones other than a HEPA filter insideade9933Member
I was out on Saturday night and the people I met were telling me how their Dyson cordless made vacuuming fun.
They did not ride bikes
They read the daily mail
They were talking about vacuuming over dinner and
They became upset at our misaligned views on the royal family
Take from that what you will.Posted 4 months ago
