GTECH AIR RAM
« on: December 15, 2015, 09:02:48 PM »
Anyone had any dealings with these? I have one, an AR02,that will not turn on. Lights up the leds for a second and then nothing. Tried a different battery and still the same. Any ideas?

Blimey, my cousin had bought one, I said she's stupid because for 199 you can buy a better Vacuum...

Glad you fixed yours.

The only problem I have come across with them is the plastic gears fuse together so the brushbar won't turn. They may have solved that now though.
I bought quite a few of these a while back all less than 30 days old. I paid 59 each for them. They proved very popular and I was getting 100 each very easily.

I have these Miele Swing H1 things at the moment. Again less than a month old but they are proving harder to shift. Miele website has them at 200 and I had them for 40 so might have to shift them on for 80. They only need cleaning and probably have not even had the warranty registered.

You can get 2 Henry's for 199, or a Henry Xtra, or a Numatic George with everything and an airo brush separate for under 199, or a Dyson DC40! The list goe on

Not a Gtech Air ram fan really, tried one in Comet years ago and it picked up like a DC01 off carpets, meh but when I turned it over to look at the brushbar, the debris came out! Cos the dirt container is literally next to it :o wtf why is it 200?! A DC44 is only like 30 more aswell and has suction and more benefits

The only thing I like about the Gtech Air ram is the battery life :)
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.

My cousin got offended when I called her a fool for buying one, and told her to buy a Kirby or Sebo. To be honest, they're for lazy people who think because it has a battery and makes the dirt into small bails it's better... Really they're just for lazy people who can't be bothered to unwrap a power cord and plug it in lol.
