Our  9 yr old Black & Decker PD1200 H1 is finally giving up the ghost. So we are in market for a replacement.

 

We have mostly used it to clean up cat dry food and tracked cat litter and for those quick jobs like window rail and fly screen rail crevices.

 

We have looked at:

 

Black & Decker 18V Lithium-ion dustbuster® Flexi Hand Vacuum $139 - $199

 

Dyson V7 Trigger $349.99

 

Shark ION Cordfree Handeld Vacuum WV203 $249 - $299

 

Any other recommendations please.

I'd like to know if anyone has used the Ryobi One stick vacuum too.

Ryobi stick one clogs the filter in record time, its a pain to clean them out. Things just sit against the mesh and block the flow up. Sometimes turning it off and hitting it will have them fall off the mesh to the bottom of the collection tub thing, but they swirl around and stick to the mesh again.

 

Also its ability to pick things up is pathetic compared to my dyson. But that has its own collection of problems and now a stuffed overpriced battery because it seems that a balance charge circuit is too much for them to want to put into the pack.

Oops - Thank you - I broke my own rule with this one. I have spent all afternoon googling and in two stores and did not even think to search geekzone before posting.

 

Though in my defence some of the above are stick vacuums and I am looking solely for a small hand held vac.

OK We ended up getting the Dyson V7 Trigger from Harvey Norman for $349.

 

Plus we ordered off Amazon.com LANMU Attachment Adapter for Dyson V11 V10 V8 V7 V6 Vacuum Cleaner, Universal Tool Adaptor Convertor for NZ$14.64

 

and

 

LANMU Drill Dust Collector for Dyson V11 V10 V8 V7 Vacuum Cleaner, with Flexible Extension Hose, Dust Sucker Accessories, No More Dust Messes When Drilling Holes NZ$38.55. Was mainly after the hose, which you can get separately but this also comes with the Drill Dust Sucker.

 

We already had the Dyson Tangle-free Turbine tool for our cats fur used with our DC8T Barrel Vac bought in 2006. so needed the above adapter.

 

Not all our original DC8T Barrel tools clicked into the Dyson V7 Trigger so was given by Mitre10 (free) a small bit of Wetta Clear Vinyl Tube 32mm dia. Now all our tools and accessories work on both Dyson Vac's.

 

So all our vacuuming needs are now covered. 😀
