What small vacuums are folks using?

We have a Dyson upright which is fantastic as an upright but really sucks (see what I did there ) when using the hose/attachments, it's powerful so the hose is always being compressed and pulls the unit over, and the tube at the end of the hose is about two feet long so no use for in the car.

So... been looking for a small handheld, could be corded, to use for the car, maybe handy to have in the house too.

I used to have a black and decker cordless that was rubbish, the small dysons are horrific prices, and we've had three vax over the years and all were mediocre at best.

What are you folks using, what's good, what's bad?

hendry style hoover with long hose and the three supplied attachments do almost everything you could want

I've a Henry and a Vax wet and dry. The Henry is brilliant. Loads of attachments too.

I've a Sealey PC310 for Wet and Dry duties however its not got a look in since we got a Dyson V6.

The Dyson V6 with the small motor brush head fitted has been a revelation. So quick and effective.

Dyson v6 here as well; forces you to vaccum everything in 7mins (high setting)

Get the toolkit for the mini hose and stuff brush

Yep, Dyson v6 too.

I got the v6 flexy for £200 which included lots of the tools.

Means we now vacume the house little and often.

I like the look of the V6 but already having a decent Dyson animal in the house, don't really want to spend that much on a second machine. Liking the idea of a wet/dry tho, can tell the mrs it would be handy in the house too..!
