Rated 4 out of 5 by from not as good as 'which' claim.have had this a few months now, purchased on the recomendation of the which review. i also use the 'miele cat and dog' vacuum that is FAR superior to this bosch model.....if you, like me, read all the reviews, dont make the mistake i did - the beater bar is not powerfull enough to rotate on carpet, so its only does half the job !

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nope.I've had the ProAnimal for a bit over a year now. Absolutely the worst vacuum I've purchased. With 3 large (albeit shorthair) dogs in the house, I constantly vacuum. Constantly. On hard surfaces, it's fine. Normal pile carpets - forget it. The brushhead immediately looses suction and constantly clogs with both my hair, dog hair, and carpet fibers. As soon as I run out of bags, I'll go back to my old brand.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerful Little MonsterSubmitted as part of a selected review panel. Wow how powerful is this hover? very very powerful, in fact so much so i struggled to use the SilentClean head unless it was on the lowest setting. The hover was very easy to put together with simple instructions to follow. Its a nice vibrant colour but i was a bit disappointed it wasn't bagless. in saying that though I've been using it for the last 2 weeks in a 4 bed detached with 3 boys and a husband and I've not yet had to empty the bag!! I did find that the silent head cleaner struggled to pick up any small bits of fluff, probably down to the fact i had to use it on the lowest setting and i didn't really enjoy using it because of this fact. However the pro animal turbo brush was great to use and picked up everything, and although we don't have any pets, having a house with 3 boys you can imagine just what a mess they can make. The only down side was its quite a chunky attachment and doesn't fit under furniture and beds as easy as the SilentClean head so i did find myself swapping the heads over quite a bit. The hose is a good length and managed to get to the top of the stairs. The cord is nice and easy to use and i love that its hidden away inside the hover, meaning it will always keep nice and tidy. My husband loved the telescopic tube as hes six foot and i much shorter than him so adapting it for both of us to use could it was a bonus. and meant he actually hovered up for a change and had no excuses not too!! The hover i did find quite chunky to use probably as I've been using an upright for as long as i can remember, so be careful not to bash it into the walls and woodwork etc, i could have done with some L plates.The attachments fitted nicely hidden away inside the hover so made it nice and compact to store. Overall i loved using the hover and it actually made hovering up fun to do. it tackled both carpets, tiles and lino very well with no issue, it had plenty of attachments and gadgets making it very adaptable around the house. Its suction power was very very good and i guess if you have pets it would really tackle pet hair quite easy. My only disappointment was that it wasn't bagless and i've been using a bagless cleaner for years now so that felt like i was going a bit backwards. Although i did like the fact it has Washable HEPA filter as we are a household full of allergy suffers and less costly. I would highly recommend this hover, good all round use for a busy household.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Submitted as part of a selected review panel.Submitted as part of a selected review panel. This is a great compact hover suitable for any home. Its easy to get about the house and it has so many attachments for all different surfaces. We have always used upright hovers so this was a good chance to try something different. Even thought this is a great hover we did find it difficult to use on the stairs due to the hose length as it was just to short to reach the last 2 steps and the only other thing what its a hoover that still has bags! I didn't this companies made these any more? However overall its a great machine and i would defiantly recommend this hover. We loved all the attachments and the adjustable suction control for all the different surfaces and rugs etc... the retractable cable is also a bonus as every one hates winding up that cable when you have finished cleaning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a powerful little vacuum cleaner !Submitted as part of a selected review panel I've been using this vacuum cleaner for a couple of weeks and must say its surpassed all expectations. So sturdy yet compact and easy to use all around the house ( and the car) and surprisingly powerful and efficient for its size. The design and extra features are well thought out, especially the long cable and telescopic tube meaning I can vacuum from one and of the house to the other and up the stairs without unplugging or having the vacuum slam into the back of my legs as the old one did. The hard floor tool sucks up right to the edge of the floor and with a little twist to the telescopic tube will go right under furniture and low shelves right to the back without blowing the dust about. I have a deep seat sofa and this is the first time I haven't had to move it to get to the dust under the back. Onto the carpets this weekend, with visitors due.. such a powerful suction it was hard at times to move the nozzle along the carpet, but what a result. There was no getting away with a part vacuum though , the carpet actually looked lighter and proof it was getting a deeper clean. It showed up which bits had vacuumed so I did it all , it was hard work but worth it. There was only one bag supplied and due to its efficiency was filled fairly quickly , so a couple of spares would have been nice but I suspect they won't fill so quickly in future as it won't build up so much. Being used to a bagless, I thought this would be a negative , but it was a much cleaner way to empty than a bagless and in my opinion worth it to keep all that dirt contained. I've yet to turn the control to 'max' , yet its picked up all manner of dust, dirt, hair and fur and a dropped bag of sugar in the kitchen ! -seems like it can tackle anything just remember to turn it down when using the upholstery nozzle or it will suck the feathers out the cushions :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light and QuietSubmitted as part of a selected review panel. My Bosch vacuum cleaner GL-50 PowerAnimal-2 came with a ProAnimal turbo head. The cleaner is light to carry amd easy to use. The cable spools out as you move further away from the electric socket. I found the cleaning power fully up to expectations both on hard floors and carpets. The standard (non-turbo) head can be changed between the two types of surface by a foot-operated button. When cleaning stairs and crevices, a small head or a nozzle can easily be fitted from the holder on the machine. The ProAnimal turbo head has a whirling brush which helps pick up animal hairs. The head is powered by the airflow, which has to be quite high, and sometimes it is reluctant to spin. Removal of the brush is very easy, to free it off from clogging threads or hair. The turbo head is probably best cleaned fairly frequently. One disadvantage of having three different cleaning heads is finding a place to keep the two not in use. Overall the GL-50 is a very good light, quiet, domestic cleaner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bosch BSGL5PT2GB power animal Allergy GL-50Submitted as part of a selected review panel. On arrival of receiving this fantastic Bosch BSGL5PT2GB power animal Allergy GL-50 vac. I was surprised when unboxing the product the machine was well packaged and all the materials are recyclable. The machine came with various attachment’s for hard floors, a carpet turbobrush, and a combi floor tool (for hard floors and carpets) also a crevice tool and upholstery tool. All the attachments are sturdy and well-built and will live up to day to day life when being used. The vac its self is the same high quality you expect from Bosch (very well built and feels like a tank) the machine was very easy to assemble together and install the bionic filter was easy. The telescopic hose has two handy storage points located on the bottom of the vac (when stood in a vertical position) or on the rear of the vac (when the vac is in use) so you can store the hose with ease saving you having to bend over or when the machine isn’t in use its stored away neatly. When I used this machine for the first time I was completely shocked at the performance this vac’s the suction which this vac produces is for nominal it completely pulls up the carpet as you run the head over it and its removed pet hair first time removing the need to go over the same spot a few times like I used to do using my old vac. The aroma the bionic filter is a pleasant aroma as I’ve found with bagged vac’s as you use them the bag gets full and then you have the issue of the doggy smell. I’m now due to put in a new replacement bag as this vac picks up more than my old vac (even when it was new) and there is still no doggy smell just a lovely pleasant aroma and in 12 month’s time I’ll just replace the filter as required . the noise from the vac is minimal to be honest I think the turbobrush does make more noise when being used than the vac does but it does deep clean your carpet rejuvenating your pile and carpets do appear cleaner when using it. The vac glides around on four casters also have the bumper going around the side to protect furniture when it gets knocked in to it. The vac is effortless to use and it’s made the chore a pleasure to do. The 15 meter flex is a god send when doing the housework I can plug it in one central place and I can vac the house without having to un plug and then re plug in another room and the auto-rewind flex is a brilliant idea no more tangled flex and looks so much neater when being stored. When a friend came around for a cuppa I was talking to her and mentioned that id been selected to review the vac on showing her and she using it at my house the next day she went out to purchase the same vac as she was that impressed with it. Would I recommend the vac to anyone else? Of course I would without a shadow of doubt it’s a fantastic machine with suction to match. One very pleased reviewer

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Submitted as part of a selected review panelI have had this vacuum cleaner for a few weeks now and I have noticed a substantial difference in my carpets! The turbo pet brush has lifted even the smallest hairs from the carpets, there has been no need to vacuum again and again or use a special tool to scrape the hairs up. The pile on the rug in my living room looks improved and less dull. The only one thing I don't like so much is the noise. When using the turbo head it's a little louder than I expected. It's not a major issue but considering that the vacuum is quiet with the standard head, I was quite surprising when first used. Although this is designed with pet hair in mind it's also been beneficial for us in another way, I have quite long, dark hair and t seems to get everywhere! The turbo brush sorts that out perfectly. Another downside to this vacuum cleaner is that it's bagged. We have used it quite frequently and I think we may need a new bag soon. Only one is supplied so I would recommend purchasing some replacement bags also. Overall I am very happy with the BSGL5PT2GB and I would be happy to recommend it to anyone!
