Henry vacuums are popular because they are indestructible, reliable, quiet, have powerful suction and they use Hepaflobags which is better as they seem to make the suction last longer. They also take a while to fill updue to the large capacity of the bags

They are used a lot in offices, schools, hospitals, airports shops and other commercial environments
DC14s are tanks, just need a slightly longer motor life. Do plastic parts often break on DC14s? Nope. DC41- Sexy looking futuristic and powerful machine. Just needs a better designed cleaner head wheel and cyclone clip along with a dense metal rod in the chassis.

Places where they have carpet tiles or very very short pile carpets.

They always sell well! I picked one up for a tenner on the way home from work.  A refurb and 12 Qtex toolkit will see it sold for 50/60 easily!

Oh right but does it cost a lot to keep buying the bags. Unless they buy in bulk. Thanks and never tried one before. Would like to though. Thanks

Qtex is a pattern spares supplier.  Accounts can be had,  but tbh its usually cleaner to buy via ebay or stu on here,  by the time you take vat and shipping into account.

I have an account,  but haven't used it in ages.  Unless you spend 00's at once,  it doesnt always work out cheaper

Stu will always do you a deal,  and can go collect it and post it cheaper than qtex will,  they charge 8 a delivery,  so buying a 60p filter is pointless

It's handy if you have a load of machines that needs parts then you can build up your list on the website until it reaches a suitable level and then order all your parts at once.
That's what I've been tending to do, but if you need to order one or two parts and need them ASAP then as said before it's going to work out dearer... In which case you're better off buying from here or eBay/Amazon etc...

When I order from Qtex I usually buy 2-3 more of each item that I need anyway so I've got a small stock pile for future needs ;)
