This review is about the Electrolux boss bagless cyclonic upright vacuum cleaner! For about the last year I have had a really terrible cylinder cleaner. It took me ages to hoover a room. This morning I received my new vacuum. I could not believe the amazing suction power of it. I had vacuumed less than a week ago but after hoovering one and a half rooms it was completely full of dust. I always thought my house was reasonably clean but this was obviously not the case! This vacuum is a massive 1500 watts. Not only is it powerful its also pretty light and easy to manoeuvre. The cables a very good length. I could get around the whole house without even unplugging it. It used to take me an hour to hoover the house but today it took me just 15 minutes. It sucks up everything so quickly and efficiently. This vacuum is bag-less. Although it may cost more than a hoover that uses bags initially this does not matter because you will never need to buy another bag again so it will pay for itself. People always make such a big deal about Dysons but I don?t see how any vacuum could be much better than this one. The main features are: Bag-less cyclonic action An easy to empty dust container. Just tip it into the bin and empty it out. Easy peasy! It took me ages to master the art of changing my bag in my old vacuum. I always put it in the wrong way! Onboard tools. This includes a crevice nozzle and a strange looking double holed triangle thingy. I have no idea what this is for! It has a 3 stage filtration system with a washable filter. I think you have to wash the filter every 3 months. A 7 metre cord A carpet pile selector for different thicknesses of carpet. I haven?t bothered to use this yet. A hose for stairs, corners and sides. This could do with being a little longer. This is definitely the best vacuum in the universe ever! It cost me £100 and was wor th every penny. As I am sure you have gathered I definitely recommend this vacuum to anyone looking to buy one. Happy cleaning!
Ok as you may have noticed this is in the wrong catergory but 1373 is pretty much the same hoover (as they both have the same instruction manual) When I bought the Electrolux Stairmaster (Z1379) with true hepa filtration I was a little dubious as previously I had a Dyson DC01 which provided a few years of reliable service (almost, but thats another opinion) and I really didn't think it would be as good. With four kids, a dog and two cats and a freind who brings her white German Shepard in a few times a week I needed a hoover that could handle pet hairs, ground in crisps and general household dirt with ease, and beleive me this hoover can do that without any problem. It has a powerful 1400 watt motor with six carpet pile settings, a wide selection of on board tools which allow the cleaning of upholstery as well as carpets and a long hose attachtment that will easily reach all the way up stairs without moving the hoover and a nice finishing touch is the backsaver handle and the unit being not too heavy. The disadvantages with this hoover are the filter prices, the hepa filter costs £20 and needs to be replaced every six months at the most, and the system also has two other filters which need replaced every few months (priced at £10 for a box of three sets, which will last about a year). I have found that I have to empty the hoover more often than I did with the Dyson as the collection container is smaller. Yet I think that the advantages far outweigh the disadvantages and it is more than £50 cheaper than the cheapest Dyson. After using it for a few months around the home I am more than happy with my hoover, although if I had to purchase another I would go for a model with permanent filters, but this is a powerful machine which has kept my carpets in tip top condition. Compared to the Dyson, which I previously owned, this hoover is just as good if not better, and since its a good bit cheaper and it is still in great condition, which is more than could be said for the Dyson DC01 after the same period of time (which had £50 worth of repairs done to it within the first 6 months), I will be sticking with the Electrolux cyclone range from now on.
The boss cyclone is a very good cleaner. It is very light and is easy to push around the house. It has amazing cleaner power through the 1300 watt motor and the air is noticable cleaner afterwards. This is probably because the air isn't dragged through a bag, and because there a 3 filters cleaning the exhaust air. The cyclone bit is pretty good and seems to work and you get to see all the crap you have just picked up spinning around. The only trouble with this cleaner is that it does rely heavily on the 3 filters and they do get clogged up very quickly. We have also broken two drive belts which seem to snap too easily when you pick up a rug or something. Having not to use a bag is a big advantage and you can really smell and see the difference.
