Henry vacuum- hated
« on: November 29, 2015, 02:15:48 PM »
Here's a funny/entertaining video about a guy who really hates Numatic vacuums  :))  Some people may agree or disagree with him. Personally I like Henry's etc  :icon_nod:
Thought you might enjoy this :P  ;D

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.

I hate cylinders :| I tried to get on with them but I just don't like them. Uprights for me!

I don't mind them in general, but I wouldn't buy one for my main Vacuum. For the car yeah, I bought a longer hose for my Numatic and that's ideal for the car.
Uprights for cleaning cars are a pain lol.

Lol I find it much easier to vacuum cars with an upright because there's just a hose cuff whereas cylinders have a big banana handle. Henry's are probably my favourite cylinder vacuums, not sure why

I use my DC35 for the car used to have a "Basil" ( the orange Henry ) and it was useless

Very amusing video however

He has encapsulated my dislike of Henry.

Why we have a Dyson and Sebo shop I suppose........

Used my Auntie's Henry to clean her car once, was alright but still hated it because the hose cuff can't have tools unless the adaptor is used, and that adaptor is long and the hose cuff is long, so those two attached together is already long enough and then I need to add another tool :|

I'll stick to Dyson uprights in the car lol. I find the Dc04 best in the cars (nice tool set) and maybe the DC14 but hate the crevice tool on the 14 and 07 (large hole(s) and a bend in the 14

I just Vacuum the car, as long as it's clean after I don't care lol. I can spare the extra few seconds to add on the little plastic tube. But, I don't use any attachments I use only the hose with the diagonal cut end...

Lol I use the crevice tool, turbo brush, dusting brush and stair tool and sometimes the wand in the boot

Once used the DC25 with the cleaner head in the boot, looking back now it's embarrassing!

A few months ago I was vacuuming the car with the DC14 Animal and we live on a main road, like a really busy road with traffic lights, and there was traffic when I was vacuuming the boot. Felt really awkward cos I had a feeling people were looking at me! No sure if it's because we have a Dyson Animal or if it's just our car lol  :offtopic:
