Rated 1 out of 5 by from I must have bought the wrong one!!!!!I bought the Bosch 18v athlet less than 12 months ago and have not been happy with it. A few months ago the handle snapped off completely in my hand , I was sent a new handle in 3 days, but still did not expect that to happen. Now the charger has failed and I cannot charge the cleaner. The cleaner itself has never cleaned that well so overall I am not impressed with this appliance and would not recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Spare parts for filterSpare parts for filter are not easy to find on line the web sight should list these for purchase otherwise very good except for small capacity and frequent cleaning needing face mask to avoid dust

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great but.....Bought this just under 2 years ago and had to take first one back as didn't start up at all. Replacement worked fine but about 3 months ago I found it harder to push. My husband has looked at it only to find one of the back wheels has broken and gets wedged and then marks all of my wooden floors. it's the most expensive vacuum I've ever bought and the only one ever to cause me problems

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Oh dear!I have had this for six months and originally, after returning the first one to the shop because it didn't charge, I thought it was great: easy to use, light and good suction. OK we have had builders (I haven't tried to shift builders dust with it) and we have a dog but this no longer works. I bought a new filter and filter cover thinking it might have got clogged but having fitted it, there is no improvement. It isn't even picking up from my tiled floors. This always seems to happen with vacuum cleaners, they work well for a short time and then don't do the job. If anyone can tell me where I'm going wrong please do.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great performance, just one small gripeThis vacuum performs as well as any corded vacuum (I previously had a Dyson). The only issue I have encountered is that the strap is Awkward to use and the crevice tool needs an extended tube to make lfe a lot easier. Is this available?
