Err I would expect a lot more suck for £99 and I don't think a rechargeable is up to it................especially if it's from Lakeland who do seem to have a lot of overpriced stuff.

Spooky travelled with us for 5 years and over 20,000 miles.He died aged 11 and is buried in Delphi in Greece.
Now that's a great age and a great adventure for a rabbit and I think he deserves a mention.

We have the dyson

It has the extension pole and the rotating brush

It reasonable on the carpets but does need constant cleaning of dog undercoat out of the brushes

We need the carpets, ours are made to measure wool carpets

Because yeti feet are wet , yeti feet slip on vinyl floors

And wool is forgiving

Dry the mud and hoover it up

Of course we could just get rid of the hound from hell

Hi,
We have one of those VonHaus stick mains vacs that Webby linked to, which we use all around the house as it's so light and easy compared to our Henry.

. It's good value and really powerful being 1000W so we haven't taken it away in the van

We use a cheapo rechargeable Argos jobby, fifteen quid and it keeps our caravan spick and span, charge lasts for about 20 minutes, plenty long enough for a decent vacuum!!

Charges from 12 or 230 volts.

Canít see the point in paying a fortune for a Dyson or similar. 1 X Dyson equals about 10 Argos ones, the batteries last about the same time.

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, itís in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

Itís a morphy richards and itís quite good actually. No doubt it can be found cheaper though.

I am not a number. I am a free man.

B& D Dustbuster every time for me. Sounds like you may have had your money's worth. Did what you wanted it to do? Lasted well? Buy another one. Better the devil you know. I suppose wattage rating is the best indicator of performance. (Any expert feel free to correct me.)

How long would you expect it to last Viv with normal use?

My home one which remains permanently on charge is used for picking up crumbs etc off the kitchen floor mostly (and I'm good at spreading them around) has been in use at least since my house was built 15 years ago.

Well the two we have have started to fade badly after around 4 years of occasional use. They were around 80 quid a pop so I'll be looking elsewhere I think. They are still OK for the odd crumb spillage but after around a minute or two they fade.
