Happy I got my CycloneForce then! If all else fails I'm sure this is under the limits...
Such a joke as if we don't have bigger issues to deal with in EU than decent vacs

I have read on another forum that the EU claims that the cost of running a 1600w vacuum cleaner is £27 per year. Then someone there worked out it indeed is, if you run it for 100 mins PER WEEK!
Though I'm sure that's not the case for many other people who live in small flats and 2 story homes.
If you have children and/or pets, 100 minutes a week seems way too low!
What a load of absolute dross. The drop to 1600w perhaps I can see but down to 900w? That's ridiculous!
Like the toilet flush, it will just cause more energy to be used because you have to use it more than once or for longer to get the same results as a normal setup.
I mean in Europe they have a lot of hard floors so may be not a problem. Also I know that my Henry is 1200 watts and it as good as some of the more powerful cleaners.
Guess I'll have to keep my Vax pet vacuum going for as long as possible. It bends time & space when it's at full power.
"Out of my cold dead hands!"
I'll cherish my Henry for as long as he lasts.
We've tried God know's how many hoovers, even a specific pet hair one, and nothing works better than a Henry.
It's also good as the caretaker let's me borrow the hoover bags!

The best vac I ever had was a Hoover upright, which my Aunt gave me in 1980. It was probably third or fourth hand when she got it a number of years before. It was still going strong when I left Australia in 1993. I donated it to the local church and they are probably still using it.

Second best I had was a 1970's Vac wet and dry. It was invincible.
Finally had to get rid of it when the missus wanted a "modern" machine. Worst thing I ever did.
Was useful with the old car for sucking water up off the carpets when the door seals started to perish.
