Default A year and a half later - any other recommendations?

I thought I'd ask again - most of the links are not working now guys. I've been thinking of a Miele but the price is a bit...

I've got carpets, one of which is particularly sticky, stairs and a border collie - long and short hair, a lot when shedding...

Any advice is welcome, my head is now sore, have been searching and reading reviews all day, it gave me such a headache.... help!

Thanks, I've looked into this one too. Unfortunately, I found quite a few negative reviews, written a year after the purchase. "the HEPA filter which pops out continually, breaking the seal and stopping the suction.", which makes it useless . They say it is a designer fault. So I am not sure now which models this applies to (that particular review is written on 28 March this year about" Miele S6220 2000 Watt Cat and Dog", I'm not allowed to post links yet). I was wondering if Miele had done anything about it in their later models, that's why I am looking for reviews from people who've had the hoover for more than a year - and which models they find successful.

I have had my Miele TT5000 Cat and Dog for 4 years, its as good today as it was on day 1. The only complaint is that its built like a tank and is a little heavy.

I guess you mean this one.

That's exactly the one I meant, yeah, thanks. Yours is a bit hard to find but I will certainly consider it - saw it on Amazon. Thanks again!

I've actually got the Miele cat and dog and the Henry. I got the Miele one about 12 years ago - from John Lewis with a 5 year guarantee, we had a dog then and it was great, its only slowing down now - my fault for not changing the filter and from hay bits blocking it as I've got guinea pigs indoors.

We've also got a Henry as my Mum finds the Miele too heavy and Henry's a lot lighter, its very good but I'd say the Miele is a lot, lot better than the Henry when it comes to pet hairs.
I'd always say to consider John Lewis and the extended guarantees they often include for no additional charge.

From all I've read, Miele with probably one of the best choices, I want an upright, so the rotating brush picks the hair from the carpet, and not me going over the same place over and over again

The thing is, it is a bit outside my price range at the moment, I'm afraid... I'll think about it though, John Lewis with their extended guarantee is also worth considering. Thanks.

Get laminate floors and you can use anything! Seriously our carpet was full of dog hair and was hard to get up.

I bought a Miele upright a couple of years ago because they're supposed to be the best. It cost me an arm and a leg and I stopped using it 12 months ago in favour of a lightweight vac. The Miele is just so heavy, it wore me out!!
Experience is a wonderful thing.
It enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again.

I don't really want to spend more than 150, car insurance is due this month

Not a hoover, but check out this device called a Furminator, its like a hook sort of creation, and you use it as a grooming tool - it really, REALLY gets the hair off them, so less moulting and less hair to vacuum up. We have one short haired lab/staff cross and one border collie so they have alot of hair between them, but we really notice a difference when regularly grooming with the furminator! Try to use it once a week minimum, although we've had periods of using it once a day, and the difference was just remarkable.

Hi Iv four cats a dog and other small feathered and hairy humans and animals. The best thing Iv found was this mop as it gets the hairs up so you can hoover them up .

No pets in my house now, but when I had a long haired border collie and a long haired ginger tom I found the best thing to do was "scrape" the carpet with my foot whilst wearing trainers! It really lifted the hair which I could then put into a bag and vacuum the last bits.
Try it!
