A great hoover from a great company. Really easy to pull around the place, and the suction is great. I had a dyson before, which cost a lot more, and I honestly can't tell the difference. I guess time will be the test, but so far I am very happy with its performance. Ron Glastonbury (read more)

We have owned a Nilfisk for about 8 years and although it still goes well, it had seen better days cosmetically and the wheels were coming off so we decided to go for a new one. The wife always liked the look of Henry and when we researched it on the web, we seen fantastic reviews everywhere ! We bought Henry and from the start have hated everything about the little blitter ! The pipes and attachments are only held together by friction so they pop off so easy no matter how tight you put them... (read more)

I've recently tried a more domestically focussed machine and have been utterly dissapointed, having gotten used to the fantastic performance of my Henry. Needless to say I've since ditched the piece of c**p that cost me twice as much and have purchased another Henry. Just as good as the last one (which never even broke but was replaced as it looked a bit tired!) I'll be looking forward to another 20 years faithful service then! (read more)

Got this thing on amazon( we got "james"), it is nothing more than a shop vac with a bag, really. If you want to clean your house with a shop vac, got to the hardware store and get one cheaper than this. Its load and doesnt pick up much. The worst part is the main tube pieces of the vacuum only connect by friction, no clips or conenctors. This leaves the pieces coming apart as you operate the vacuum. Also the suction control is nothing more than a slide clip at the hose end of the vacuum.... (read more)

When we moved into our new flat we couldn't afford an expensive vacuum cleaner so plumped for a cheapy from Asda. The thought was that we only had a couple of small rooms with carpet and the rest was laminate so it should do the job. How wrong we were. It was bloody awful, our lounge rug was never clean unless we got down on our hands and knees with the hose (very tedious). So in the end we got a Henry. The price wasn't too bad, only £60 more than the cheap one that eventually died on... (read more)

We bought a basic Dyson back in the late 90's, and it was great despite months of DIY abuse (polyfiller dust, plaster, bricks, etc). Then we changed carpets and were advised that the brush would ruin the loop-pile and we needed a suction only cleaner. Research said "Henry" - what a mistake! Dyson, I emptied after every use. Henry, filled the house with stench of stale dust/dirt. Sorry, I'm not buying bags for every time I use it. Dyson was an upright, yet still had long enough hose... (read more)

I started using Henry years ago when i used to be a cleaner in a nursing home, we had these a few months after i started working there and they were a huge improvement over the old one which was a Dyson upright vacuum cleaner that was useless, bulky, flimsy and all the attachments kept dropping off even though it wasn't that old.

Having wasted £100 on a bagless Electrolux which was the world's worst vacuum cleaner ever, it was a delight to get a Henry.... sure it's a bit cheesey but I still smile when I use it and the bag takes an age to fill.... and so much less messy than emptying a bagless cleaner into the dustbin. It's basic but pretty foolproof, it has good suction and moves around easily...the length of hose is good. The only minor gripe is the basic accessories but they're ok I guess....just a bit basic and... (read more)

I bought a Henry vacuum to replace our current Miele vacuum. The Miele is 7 yrs old, and although the motor is working fine, the door to it has come off and the attachments have been falling out - so I decided it was time for something different.

After working in the hire industry for many years the Henry is the best by far so much that I brought one myself.

Numatic HVR200A HENRY A1 Bagged Cylinder Vacuum Cleaner plus Kit A1, Red/Black
Cost £95 plus P&P
This cleaner was bought by my daughter with whom I live as our old cleaner (a very good one, actually, had come to the end of its useful time). She had been told how powerful HENRY HOOVERS ARE! Yes, they are and that is all that is good about it.

My review of the HVR-200A
I am sure I am not alone with this. - I had carpets with Dyson Upright Vacuum (hey, that's probably half the population then) The Dyson cleans well, but it is cumbersome and heavy, especially when you only have small to medium sized rooms, and it's a swine to carry it up/down stairs. I do like uprights and would not have a cylinder cleaner for carpets, full stop.
However, I changed over completely to laminate floors and sweepers are only good for crumbs. A friend... (read more)

By far the best, most reliable and most powerful pound for pound vacuum cleaner on the market. Dyson, Meile, Hoover and other manufacturers pale into insignificance by comparison.

Am not at all impressed with Numatic Henry . It's far heavier and more cumbersome than my previous hoover, especially on stair cases. The tubes do not fit together properly, stiff to pull apart and floppy when in use. Takes far too much physical effort to change attachments. Topples over easily. Hose pipe is too long so body gets left miles behind and caught around things. Low power is virtually useless. Carpet brushes are way too stiff so its hard to push along the surface. Hope it soon...

I was given the pink (Hetty) version of this hoover for Xmas by my daughter and I daren't tell her how much I hate it! She said oh they're fantastic for picking up cat hairs which is why I wanted one. It's rubbish. It pushes the cat hairs round the room so you have to use the nozzle end (backbreaking work) to get up stuff it can't cope with, and it's too flipping heavy. I'm going back to my old one as at least it was lighter to move around. (read more)

I am a graphic and product designer and designed HENRY for the Numatic company around thirty years ago when I lived in England. It has been a huge success and sold throughout the world. I am very proud of Henry, not only does it clean well but it is very compact and people love the way this little character folows them around the house.

Henry Vacuum cleaner. Forget about Dyson: you get a design compromise on every single model. The fact they keep feeling the need to change it, says a lot! The Henry has a very simple build so there is very little to break or go wrong - even if it falls down the stairs. No gimmicky extras like automatic card winders (which always break). Suction is excellent, they're easy to manoeuvre - even under furniture - and the cord is REALLY long so you don't need to keep moving plugs. The bag... (read more)

I had my last Henry for 23 years and felt I needed a change. After reading reviews of various makes I decided to stick with a Henry. Am I disappointed - no. I went for a change of colour, but the Henry is just as good. It is now easier to pull around, has a wind up the cord, is quieter than my old model and it now has an extra boost button. It can cope with being bounced off the paintwork, attacked by the dog, sat on by the kids and it still does a good job. How could I ever thought of... (read more)

Why didn't I buy the Henry Xtra years ago instead of wasting so much money on other vacuums, including a dyson that died after trying to pick up diy debris.
The Turbo /airflo brush is a must especially if you have pets, on the high power setting really works well.
While using it without tools it managed to find a battery that had fallen behind a bedroom unit. Couldn't believe how easily it picked it up.
Brilliant little machine.
