What vacuum cleaner? Not for racing!
Okay so its a change from the what tyre thread!
I mainly use the cleaner for leisure purposes, i’m not into this all mountain or free ride stuff, flat surfaces only though do occasionally do the stairs. The types of terrain I clean are wooden floors and some carpet. Weight is not too much of an issue, but reliability is (thinking bagless) and i’ve previously used a dyson original. Anyone got any good suggestions and or good places for deals, i’ve heard there have been some price rises recently due to the exchange rate with the yen.
(This is a semi serious thread, I do actually need a new vacuum cleaner) any suggestions welcome,

Miele cylinder*… we got the Cat and Dog to replace a dyson, I was skeptical about a bagged vaccum after the dyson, but the bag last for a good while considering (3 cat, 1 dog, 1 mtb’er and 1 horse rider).
There mutiple head attachements to do specific jobs, cleaning our stairs used to be a major chore, it’s now very easy with the right tool.
Can’t recommend the Miele enough – I know very sad….
* = upright is a major weight! G/f reckon she wouldn’t be able to carry it up the stairsPosted 9 years agostealthcatMember
If anyone in the house has long hair, avoid Dysons like the plague. It used to take as long to remove hair from the rollers as it did to vacuum the whole flat. And they aren’t great if you do lots of DIY either…
Henry is a far better option, but we have had problems with the bags splitting if you aren’t careful putting them in.Posted 9 years agoRudeBoyMember
I don’t know what people have against Dysons
Faddy poncy plastic junk. All sorts of plasticky bits that break off really easily. And then cost £87.58 plus P+P, for a little piece of plastic. I’ve seen Henries bounce down concrete stairs and still work perfectly. I clonked a Dyson into a bit of skirting board, and the front of the roller housing fell off! **** thing.
A Henry I was once using caught fire (inadvertantly sucked up a lit fag-end). Had to put it out with a fire stinguisher. Bit of burnt plastic, but the bugger still worked fine!Posted 9 years ago
