    lso have that one Uncle franc but alas wear and tare is taking toll and now needs a major repair or upgrade. Bought the small unit for interim use. The newest model R5000.00 is a stiff one for now. Still need to assess if it is worth it.

    Bought a Hoover vacuum with water and HEPA filter.

    vacuumed a piece of the living room carpet = dirty water =

    Vacuumed the same part again, water is still dirty

    But the real nice thing is that you smell no dust in the air

    With our previous vac cleaner you had more dust in the air than on the carpet after a sucking session

    Sorry for resurrecting this thread , but the wife is looking to get the Genesis Hydrovac Extreme.
    She is also thinking of the Bissell Pro Heat Turbo 2X.

    Does anybody have any recent experience with any of the two machines, and any reason why not to get either of them?
    They are priced the same, but not sure if spending that amount of money is worth it.

    Anyone Care to recommend a good carpet washer...?

    Having had a look at what is on offer at Game and Makro most of it looks like junk TBH. Also the spray and suck vacuum cleaners don't seem all that effective to me. I think something with a scrubbing action/rotating brush is much more effective.

    We use the Genisys system at our offices, but it cost way more than R700.
    Thinking of getting one for our home now as well.

    I have this little fellow. It's suited my flat just fine.

    Samsung Air Track 2000W

    The Hepa filter, although I trust it's quite clean, I still imagine there being a warm dusty smell afterwards lingering in the room. Maybe it's just the heat and the movement of air.

    Thing is with these kind of vaccuum cleaners, the more dust it collects the less it's power becomes. I don't wait for the dust to reach the bucket's max level. I empty it after every vaccuum.

    This is the best vaccuum cleaner in THE WORLD.



    VORWERK is the brand name. It's a German brand. They have a repair shop in Cape Town I think next to the M6.

    My mother has had this model (it's not my photo, I pick it from google) since the 19 seventies. The thing finally packed up 5 years ago and couldn't be repaired anymore. It has only neede to be repaired twice in more than 30 ****ing years.

    That vaccuum cleaner is the easiest vaccuum cleaner to operate EVER. The foot piece has it's own electrically powered brush the scoops up debris and the engine then sucks everything up.

    Most vaccuum cleaners nowadays, even my own (the 2000W one), rely on the sucking power of the motor alone through the long extended nozzle. It's not always sufficient. My mother's old cleaner did a FAR better job than any modern cleaner can do at the moment.

    Yes, you get similar models that also have a model with a powered foot attachment the brushes up the dust and debris ... but even in 2015 nothing my mother has tested comes close to her old 1970s model VORWERK.

    Do you think it works OK though...? I've been reading up on most of the stuff available in SA and genuinely everything looks rather underwhelming. The fact that they same vacuum sells for almost 4x less on Amazon doesn't help either.

    It works OK, but I am also of the opinion that most of the stuff on the market is crap. Buying anything under R2000 is a total waste of time to me. It will only last a year.

    I must say though, that I agree with Leonidas. Vorwerk is a good brand if you can find it.
    Now that I think about it, my Mom had one of those things for many years!
    But then we also had a Karcher (Nice steel one) that lasted us 20 years.
