Dyson V8 Animal


Our fur-moulting, muddy-pawed companions have always necessitated the best in vacuum cleaner technology for the home. Big motors, powerful suction, dedicated tools and floor-heads with rotating brush bars are a must. So can Dyson's V8 Animal cordless...

Not so dusty.


"At last, efficient carpet cleaning on stairs and awkward corners, with very easy change of tools and so simple to empty. Was reluctant to spend all that money and have only been using it for a week, but a week when builders have been working, there...

Fantastic hoover


This hoover is by far the best ever I have ever had or used. A little pricey, but you definitely get what you pay for with this.

Amazing bit of kit


Had a Henry Hoover before this. And this vacuum in unbelievable pulled up so much more dirt than the Henry could manage. Worth every penny
