I use a 14.4V Wet&Dry Hoover - works well / gets used every day - gib dust etc /only needs top up chargeing once a week - but it might be a bit of an over kill for home use

Folks have got one of these, it works really well. You can pull the vac out and use it as a hand held.

Black and decker 12V works well, I think their higher voltage ones work even better. They do take ages to charge and last hardly any time, but you can either accept that or pay heaps more.

Well I went to the black and decker website and looked at the range, then googled the model numbers. It's tough, I know, I'll put together a tutorial for you some time :p

DV1810EL
PV1210

Mitre 10, briscoes, and trademe were the sites most likely to have them. The 18V is LiIon so it'd be ideal, but not sure the price.

There's also a where to buy link on the product page.

yes i know ... the search is a dead end - it gives you infinite list of possible stockists of either "home products" or "power tools"!

i suppose i could pick up the phone and try every one of the 50 listed stockists ... might try mitre 10 coz they're the biggest but i dont remember them selling vacuum cleaners .... couldn't find it on briscoes website nor local store

....

Check the reviews on Youtube, some of these things do 'suck' badly...

Hi 

Harvey Norman has an Electrolux one for $169
http://www.harveynorman.co.nz/electrolux-ergo-rapido-2-in-1-stick-vacuum.html

No personal experience on this but did have a play at the shop.  Suction is average I would say.

I have been wanting one that can be used for small jobs and I suppose the detachable unit is handy for the car and also removing crumbs from the couch and lounge. 

cheers

I think I sold my fiance's one of those on trademe. It was ok, nothing special, I wouldn't buy one. Fine for very small areas.

Battery ones will only also about 15 minutes on a charge. Consumer has just done test on them if you are a member. I have got a black and decker DV9610-XE . I think the black and decker website is old and out of date, becuase it isn't listed. Consumer do recommend the DV9610-XE as one of the recommended models, and I find it good, and has reasonable suction, as it has a fine pull out nozzle. But NONE are a full vacuum replacement, they are just for cleaning up spills.

Gib dust totally kills vacuum machine motors. Would never use for that.

Hmmm I'm not sure how that would come about.

joker97: but how much did you buy your dyson for?


I don't remember now. I got it from Harvey Norman about 5 years ago. it was certainly more expensive than other handhelds but IMO worth the extra price. It also came with the motor head which works well too.
