    “Best vacuum i've ever owned - over 7 years old too!”

    Written on: 05/10/2012

    I picked this vacuum up at biglots for $79.00, and thought it would be another throw away cheapo.. Man was I wrong! This thing has more suction than Obama's followers. It has withstood the test of over 7 years of beating it around, the main power switch did break from my daughter dropping the cleaner down stairs (i replaced that). I take my air compressor and blow the filter out every so often and it acts like a brand new cleaner. It sucks so hard that sometimes you have to put your back… Read Full Review

    Written on: 02/03/2007 by anorak (1 review written)

    I agree with a previous review. We bought on the reputation that Bosch has, but have been very disappointed. Like all vacuum cleaners it clogs up and needs to be cleared out, however it seems to happen more on this cleaner. When taking it apart it seems very fiddly and complicated, and if you need to take it apart to properly clear it out there are millions of screws. (well at least 12 holding the beater plate in place!).

    The final nail in the coffin was when the beater stopped working… Read Full Review

    I experienced the same problem with the beater motor shutting down. There is a quick fix to this usually. There is a "Reset" button just behind where you pull out the hose attachment. This thing sat in my closet for at least a year because I was worried about the repair bill and after I discovered the reset button - it works like a champ again!

    Written on: 22/12/2006 by Terence Wass (13 reviews written)

    The Bosch Cyclone Jet BUC11700UC vacuum cleaner has great suction. So much in fact, that it requires some effort to push it around. Once you get used to it, you can give your carpets a really good clean by slowly covering each stripe just once.

    Unfortunately, the brush motor has plastic teeth on the driving end. When a nail or paper clip jams the brush, this causes these teeth to burn away, meaning another £50 brush motor must be purchased. If just the belt was ruined, I could tolerate that… Read Full Review

    Written on: 13/05/2006 by devils advocate (1 review written)

    I was attracted to the Bosch Cyclone Jet by positive reviews, design and price, I happy threw out my Dyson DC01 and replaced it with the Bosch.

    Very impressed initially, but became aware of major loss of suction despite emptying cannister when only 1/4 full. Then I removed the round cartridge filter...
    This filter, which according to the manual should only require cleaning 'under certain circumstances e.g. when vacuuming fine particles', was completely chocked out with dust and was a filthy… Read Full Review

    Written on: 02/06/2006

    i have to agree with everything that has been said. I too own this vacuum and the paper filter trap blocks up extremely quickly rendering the vacuum virtually useless. i have to take this filter into the garden and tap it hard with a heavy stick to dislodge all the compacted dust. Further more the brushes get clogged up as well and its a job and a half to get all the screws out to lift the brushes clear of the vacuum. My brushes still won't rotate so it looks as if i will need to buy a new belt. Parts are not cheap and the paper filter costs around £25.00! I have only had this vacuum for 18 months. Its good when its clog free but i won't get another.

    Written on: 19/02/2006 by Batesrich (22 reviews written)

    The Bosch Cyclone Jet BUC11700UC is definitely the best vacuum cleaner we have ever owned, but it needs to be treated with respect and intelligence.

    If you are the kind of person who does not believe in looking after equipment, don't buy one. Our machine is now almost three years old and is still doing a great job. It has failed once when my wife decided to pick up some damp wall paper she had stripped (even though we do have a big 'wet and dry' job for doing just that). The said paper, of… Read Full Review

    I would totally agree, with this review. I've had the Vac 1 for just over a year and the beater brush jammed - I have phoned numerous numbers at Bosch UK and it is engaged. Customer service = nil.

    Bought the Bosch Cyclone Jet BUC11700UC as a replacement for my VAX AVC2, which correct me if i'm wrong, is almost the same but re-badged BOSCH? Did they buy VAX? I bought the AVC2 a couple of years ago to replace the over-hyped Dyson we bought (never again! Totally agree with all the other reviews about Dyson and their products!). The only reason I am having to replace it so soon is because I have abused it by using it for vacuuming a lot of building work! The suction on these things is… Read Full Review

    Written on: 18/02/2005 by lumberingjack (2 reviews written)

    Bought the Bosch Cyclone Jet BUC11700UC two days ago and now have an aching right arm due to the suction on deep pile "Wilton" carpets. Ordinary carpets are OK to push on and turning on the brushes certainly helps. Believe me I am no wimp as I am a 34 year old lumberjack and I would not recommend it for older people or people with bad backs, my wife uses two hands to push it.
    As for hairs we have a new sheepskin rug which constantly sheds hairs onto the "wilton" and it just will not pick these… Read Full Review

    Nothing wrong with good suction on vacum cleaner, its companies like Bissel and Dyson that make it easy to move and leave half dirt inside carpets.

    Written on: 17/01/2005 by Fierymac (1 review written)

    We bought the Bosch Cyclone Jet BUC11700UC after our Dyson died - seems quite common nowadays. Not happy with forking out £200 again for another Dyson with what appears to be approximately a two year lifespan, I decided to see what else is available. Just happened upon the Bosch by luck - but having used it now, I'm extremely glad I did.

    Written on: 03/01/2005 by oldfart (1 review written)

    We bought the Bosch Cyclone Jet BUC11700UC after a catalogue of disasters with our old Dyson, here's the story: Carolyn asked me to fix the Dyson on Boxing Day. The prospect of changing yet another broken belt on our old Dyson was just too much to bear. It wasn't a happy relationship with the old DC01 but since we had paid an arm and a leg for it a few years ago,(the same price as a semi in the 1930's according to Grandad), we soldiered on with it. I became quite adept at stripping it down to… Read Full Review

    I and my wife read this review and enjoyed the style in which it was written. It was very descriptive, and interestingly written. We were very impressed with the review, so much so that I placed an internet order soon after. Then I tried to relocate this review and could not find it. It took me 2 days to finally find it using Copernic Agent and painstakingly going through every Link that was found. It was just as pleasant reading it the second time. Thanks for a brilliant review, Oldfart!

    Nearly 18 months down the road with this model and still no complaints - it continues to do a marvelous job. I'm just about to try and buy another one for my business premises if it's still in production. Who'd of thought that I would get so enthusiastic about a vacuum cleaner. Middle age certainly brings you back down to earth!

    Written on: 31/12/2004 by Terence Wass (13 reviews written)

    I'm impressed with the Bosch Cyclone Jet BUC11700UC. This machine is just about everything the Dyson should have been but wasn't.
    I previously owned a Dyson which fell to pieces and I vowed never to own another. I borrowed my mothers cleaner (Dyson DC04?) to clean the dining room.
    The sparkly new Bosch arrived the next day, and for interest, I went over the same room (about 14' square) again.

    When I had finished, I had to empty the dust bucket!

    Bosch Cyclone Jet BUC11700UC - As far as I am concerned, this is 'the one'. Some people have said that it seems heavy to use but after a few minutes, I realised that this is only because of the tremendous suction power it is putting into your carpet. Because of this, you need to adopt a slightly different technique - don't try running it back and forth 'energetically', you dont need to! Just go along in straight lines slowly and let the machine do its job. You will be as amazed as I was at the… Read Full Review

    I had (still have in fact) a faulty Dyson DC04 and felt like I'd rather spend money on something new than trying to fix something that's broken. So for £99 (down from £199) I got the Bosch Cyclone.

    This vacuum cleaner is plainly amazing! I have not seen anything that good. Maybe it's the german engineering (probably), in any case it works perfectly well and goes beyond my expectations and anyone's normal expectations for a hoover.
