Best 12V Vacuum - Recommendations ?

Afternoon All,

I know to do 'a proper job' you need 'proper' tools and when it comes to the vacuum cleaner there is no exception, but....

To do a quick cleaning, central console, mats etc was thinking of some small, good 12V vacuum.

What is your recommendations guys ?

Something small would be nice.

Thanks,

Chris

The only thing battery powered that is any good is a Dyson. I've had loads of 12v machines and they only get used once or twice before you give up.

On closer inspection, its a 9.6v Dustbuster..... and its a bit crap at meaningful sucking up of dirt. Good for a few crumbs, but that's about it.

Well,. It's still £70 quid, so I think better to spend same money or a bit more and get a proper wat-dry vacuum cleaner me think?!

If you want a good value for money vac then try the Karcher refurbed ones, i bought 1 a couple of years ago and it looked brand new

Same one I got. Bought mine years ago and still going strong. So good I bought four friends one each when they went down to £30.


Incredible suction, especially for it's size.

Best 12V Vacuum - Recommendations ?

Ryobi 18v vac is spot on for what it is, brilliant for quick little tidy up jobs only downside is it dosnt have much reach on the extension piece. Not the cheapest but I have near on a full collection of ryobi +one appliances anyway, stick the 5.0 mah battery on it and its amazingly powerful for a handheld and lasts well.
