Very strong suction. Tough motor,housing and parts. Nice long power cord which includes durable retraction by hand.
Heavy-ish. Powered brush head would be a welcome addition.
We have had our Numatic Henry for six flawless years. Prior to this I seem to recall having a new hoover every 2nd or 3rd year for some reason or other, they simply didn't last. I have not yet come across a superior hoover even amongst those costing nearly triple the price of the Numatic Henry. So you might have to change the bag ( 2 minutes tops for the Henry ) but even when the bag is full it is still sucking stronger than any bagless hoover I've come across. It only needs the addition of a powered brush head to become the only vacuum you'd ever need.
