Monkey, South Africa. 2 November 2015

Efficiently delivered. Thank you Takelot. This very light and powerful little vacuum cleaner is very good. However, I already have a very good wet & dry vacuum cleaner of another make and wanted this one especially for the blowing facility. If it blew with the same strength that it sucked it would have served that purpose. I am keeping it as a back-up to my now, very old and trusty other wet & dry vacuum cleaner anyway as the price is very good. Going to test the water suction today. If anyone knows of a strong blowing vacuum cleaner, I am very interest but will use my leaf blower indoors for those hard to get at places for now.

Shericka, South Africa. 19 January 2016

Really Really noisy, returning the one we bought, the screeching whistling noise is unbearable.

Hannes, South Africa. 11 September 2017

The hose came loose from the plastic "handle" and there was no way to reattach it as the mounting point rotates inside the handle and there is no way to stop it. Before this went wrong, the vacuum cleaner worked ok.

andrew, South Africa. 18 February 2016

Does its main function really well, it sucks! The name on the machine "HOOVER" is all smudged (so not aesthetically pleasing). The machine makes the most hectic high pitched whistle that even the neighbours can hear...

Matthew, South Africa. 26 May 2016

Great vacuum cleaner - has awesome suction. Lots of good attachments and the Wet vac will come in handy with small kids around. It does make quite a noise, but then who hoovers while others are sleeping? The only problem I have with it is storage, because it's quite bulky I don't have a large enough nook to keep it, so it lives in the garage.

As usual the Takealot experience was phenomenal.

Doris, South Africa. 20 September 2017

Great value for money.
Just one small hassle, the foot does not glide smoothly over the carpet (Yes, I have it on the correct setting).

Elmari, South Africa. 11 August 2016

Good, powerful vacuum cleaner. Does a great job. Does make a high pitched noise when you switch it off, but nothing you can't handle.

Wayne, South Africa. 3 March 2017

I bought this vacuum because I've had the same one for 7 years prior to this purchase. All the other comments about noise etc, I guess I'm so used to the vacuum that none of the grievances listed bother me. It's a good, reliable and powerful vacuum.

Gillian, South Africa. 24 August 2017

So far the Hoover seems to be very good, but I need to use it longer to make a proper evaluation.

shane, South Africa. 17 November 2016

Very powerful, great value for money and comes with all essentials. Alot of people have complained about the noise, but it does'nt bother me. It's due to the high power motor. I would recommend it to anyone looking for good value & quality.

chris, South Africa. 14 March 2016

Hmmmm, horribly industrial looking, noisy, and it has an inlet and outlet which your helper will likely confuse at first.

Pierre, South Africa. 20 July 2017

Excelent product. Great suction and love the blowing function. Very happy with this vacuum cleaner.

Ronald, South Africa. 1 February 2017

Brilliant product so far. 2 monthes of blitzing vacuuming jobs. Disagree with criticisms of noise level, its in line with industrial vacuums of similar performance. Power cable is also quite adequate. Exercising reasonable care when emptying and re-latching the top assembly will result in perfect seal, and robust product performance. Performs way above expectations for a modestly priced vacuum. If foolishly, carelessly or incorrectly latched, I can understand the resulting bad experience of a disappointed buyer.

Johann, South Africa. 18 October 2016


Brodwyn, South Africa. 9 March 2016

I'm not sure if I was just unlucky or this model is just buggy. The first unit I ordered had a cracked fitting in the suction hole. The replacement unit emitted a painfully high pitched sound such that I had to turn off the unit after only a couple of seconds. I'm returning the second unit as well for a credit. I don't trust this model.

Lauren, South Africa. 13 November 2016

Very badly made, cheap product. After only a few months the hose broke off the nozzle completely. Has made a terrible noise since day one. Waste of money

Lester, South Africa. 10 May 2016

Very noisy, ear piercing whistling sound but gets the job done.

Marno, South Africa. 10 February 2015

Great vacuum for the price, does what it needs to do.

Kobus, South Africa. 14 August 2014

Very "industrial" type of vacuum cleaner. Easily maintainable. Good value for money

PAUL, South Africa. 13 August 2015


Jurie Grobler, South Africa. 5 May 2016

Love this vacuum cleaner, very powerful, solid build. Does the job very well for a small price tag!

Mpho, South Africa. 5 July 2016

Very good product but, you know there's always a but. It's LOUD

Lee-Anne, South Africa. 6 April 2016

Works perfectly. Great choice. It is light to move around. Very practical

Andrew, South Africa. 19 August 2014

Cant beat the price. It looks and feels strong.
Plan on using it my flat and powerful enough to use with a cyclone sawdust extractor in my garage.

Ross, South Africa. 3 March 2016

First machine broke on the first day (one of the very chunky looking but flimsy side clips broke).

Second machine being sent back today (about 6 months old) because it has broken again in a different place (where the hose connects to the handle).

I'll take a replacement gladly as it's a nice and powerful vacuum, but unless we got two duds, this thing is definitely not made to last. I kinda expected more from "Hoover".

Cindy, South Africa. 12 January 2017

Fantastic vacuum cleaner!

Fay, South Africa. 9 November 2016


Nick, South Africa. 20 August 2017

Broke after 18 months of light use

Stacey, South Africa. 7 March 2016

Great Purchase, excellent product and super speedy delivery.


Lucy, South Africa. 12 February 2016

Been returned twice and even return was damaged when we opened the box. Just not great...

chantel, South Africa. 2 November 2012

This is a BRILLIANT product! Thanks takealot for the quick delivery of my amazing vacuum cleaner. Hoover, you guys are amazing.

Ryan, South Africa. 11 August 2017

It's amazing! Not too sure why people saw it's loud?!?! I was expecting a Boeing 747 sound. It's small, easy to pack away and cleaned my flooring quick and easy.

Rhys, South Africa. 8 March 2016

When vacuuming it creates a high pitched whistle, but definitely sucks up dirt with ease.
So very efficient, but extremely loud.

Sean, South Africa. 10 October 2016

A simple, easy to use vacuum. It really is not that noisy - compared to our previous one, although it does allow for very funny comments. The hose came detached from the fitting, but was easy to put back after pulling the fitting apart. It is a simple design that works. Good value.

NERISA, South Africa. 14 September 2016

its light and easy to use.

Carlyle, South Africa. 7 November 2015

Extremely loud vacuum cleaner! Not only loud, but makes an annoying whistling noise as well. Bulky so terrible for storage. Very powerful suction though, it might be too powerful as it sticks to carpets, and requires some force to use. Not ideal for female users. The suction adjustment doesn't make a real difference. If you are looking for a cheap looking desperate purchase vacuum cleaner, then this is fine.

Matthew, South Africa. 8 March 2016

amazing little vacuum cleaner - no frills, just powerful, light to carry and gets the job done. A bit on the noisy side but bearable for the price and performance. Only little gripe is that the supplied 5m power cord is too short so expect a lot of unplugging as you move through the house.
Takealot service was impeccable - received my order in less than 24 hours and was informed of the status of my delivery every step of the way.

Angela, South Africa. 11 April 2016

I have had this machine for 12 months during which the clips on the side and the head have broken. I have paid to have the clips repaired and they have broken again within 2 months of receiving the machine back. I will never buy Hoover again as their machines are not durable even if they suck really well.

Chantelle, South Africa. 18 November 2016

This machine is just okay. The reason I say that is because it functions only as well as some other machines that are substantially cheaper. And there are no wheels on the actual nozzle part so it doesn't move smoothly over a carpet.

Claudette, South Africa. 17 January 2017

The two black plastic like pipes bend when vacuuming a carpet and all the fluff (pet hair) gets clogged up on the top and bottom of the brush. The blower function is not very effective and the grey plastic tube keeps on detaching from the handle. Very annoying. My previous 1200w vacuum was more powerful and productive than this vacuum cleaner. If you have pets which shed hair on your carpets, this vacuum cleaner is not recommended. It also makes a really loud noise. Rather spend a few more bucks and get a decent vacuum cleaner.

amanda, South Africa. 15 October 2015

Super sturdy and powerful little vacum cleaner and easy to use. Would highly recommend. The service from takealot was exceptional as always

Nicholas, South Africa. 21 December 2016

Works like a bomb - very powerful!
Easy use and clean, lead could have been a little longer.
I see some people complain about the noise but I do not see why what would you expect from a 1800 watt fan motor.
Got it for the Husky dog hair :)

Nanthakumar, South Africa. 4 October 2017

Good vacuum for the price. Gave it only 3 stars due to a couple of issues.

- Heats up very quickly
- releases quite a bit of dust in the air
- blower function is pretty weak

Tamiya, South Africa. 5 March 2016

I bought this based on reviews from other customers, and I'm glad I did! For the price you pay, this is an absolute winner! Powerful machine, if a bit noisy, but sucks up dust just like a Hoover should! It's also fairly simple to use, so even my 8 can clean up his own messes!

Paula, South Africa. 2 September 2014

Affordable and brilliant vacuum cleaner! I've owned expensive and "reputable" brands that don't come close to this one's suction power.

Mogamat, South Africa. 19 August 2016

Great service and I am quite happy with my products.

Warrick, South Africa. 11 January 2017

Unit makes an unbearable high pitched whistling noise, returned the same day.

Charlotte, South Africa. 22 December 2014

Very Happy with my this hoover. Strong,sturdy with strong suction....no regrets. Takealot.com was also soooo efficient!!! Thanks

Lynette, South Africa. 12 March 2015

This is the 2nd Hoover I have bought from Takealot and could not be happier with the service and the product.

It is a pleasure doing business with you.


Lyn Sim

Nicholas, South Africa. 18 February 2016

This has a lot of suction power. The plastic piping is rather flimsy but hey for the price it's not bad. It's basically a bucket with a motor on, does the job.

Almari, South Africa. 29 March 2015

Got this on Friday and I'm very impressed. Cant believe the machine I got for the price I paid!!

Mike, South Africa. 27 June 2016

As intended. Good value for money (Wattage per Rand?)!

Kapeesh, South Africa. 6 January 2016

This vacuum whines when you use it - but that's probably cos it's powered by some sort of demon. Very impressed with the suction power and ease of use. For it's size it's also really light. Hoover for the win!

The Leader, South Africa. 2 May 2016

Despite the manufacturer's name, this product is terrible quality. Clips broke immediately, cord is very short, extended part is flimsy, it falls over when pulled and parts wear within weeks. I think that sums it up.

Garth, South Africa. 24 October 2016

LOVE IT!...If you need a machine that does the job, this one is it.

Aye-Htun, South Africa. 14 March 2016

Love this device. Bought it to replace the LG I had for 11 years. Was a bit skeptical about the plastic quality but it turns out to be pretty strong. Great suction power.

Mbuso, South Africa. 23 August 2017

Hoover Wet n Dry 1800W, really SUCKS...
and the blow job it's so cool
it's so powerful...

very good, South Africa. 21 July 2017

Does the job pretty well I'm happy with it. Excellent product

Ricardo, South Africa. 12 July 2016

Great vaccuum cleaner...highly recommended

Dale, South Africa. 10 July 2017

It does what it is supposed to do. Easy to keep clean. Yes it is loud but for the price who cares?

Christo, South Africa. 20 August 2014

Good product for a good price, very powerful

Alicia, South Africa. 12 July 2016

Always get excellent service from Takealot.

the vacuum is perfect.

Mary, South Africa. 1 June 2016

I love this vacuum cleaner! It's easy to use, light to cart around, powerful, and the noise is really very little.

Robert, South Africa. 21 July 2017

Dear Takealot.

you deliver what you promise.
product operates satisfactorily.

thank you very much

Vandra, South Africa. 12 January 2017

Great product. Suction is very good

Sjoerd, South Africa. 10 August 2016

Great product! It's much quieter than our previous Sansui (similar setup). Hoover REALLY sucks (Pun intended)

auub, South Africa. 17 January 2016

Use mine every week top stuff only problem is the 3pin plug is very cheap so please change it as it breaks

Divya, South Africa. 19 January 2017

Good vacuum cleaner. Does all necessary work around the house. Has enough power to clean out carpet and because of the wet option I can clean my own carpets and wet vacuum them.

Andrew, South Africa. 24 August 2017

Does what it says on the tin. Some have commented on the noise, but for me it's average. Construction is good, especially at this price point. Not having a bayonet where the host attached to the cleaner seemed odd at first, but it's actually a good thing as you're unlikely to damage the hose by pulling too hard.

Su, South Africa. 20 June 2015

A very efficient little machine. The turbo brush is very effective - albeit a mission to clean (definitely worth the pain). And the clear tank means that you know exactly when you need to empty the vacuum. The capacity is a bit of an issue. In a regular three bedroom house you have to empty the tank every two to three cycles.

Donal, South Africa. 18 August 2014

Exactly as expected. Simple, robust and no frills. Looks and feels like it will last forever.

Henno, South Africa. 13 December 2016

Great suction, good simple design, apart from the flimsy hinge and noise. Mine broke and had to replace. New model seems to have a more sturdy hinge.

Zakiyah, South Africa. 10 September 2017

Love it! It's very powerful. Just didn't realise we'd have to empty the drum instead of the bag, but it's worth it regardless.

nic, South Africa. 12 October 2015

My second one - very powerful and durable.

Ebrahim, South Africa. 10 June 2016

BRILLIANT little machine at less than half the price of a Henry vacuum cleaner. Powerful little sucker and performs better than my previous machine that costs 4 times as much.

Minor problem with the hose attachment.....which Takealot replaced within 3 days. SERVICE PHENOMENAL as usual!!!

Winnie, South Africa. 8 April 2016

Love this vacuum cleaner bit noisy but really tough and gets the job done! Thanks

Andre, South Africa. 17 May 2017

Bought this machine back in 2015. It has not given one days problems, sucks brilliantly, been dropped, been pulled around its snout, I even vacuum the patio & braai after use, this vacuum goes forever!!

Truhann, South Africa. 19 October 2016

Good value for price. Received the unit with a loose screw. Had to replace the screw with a bigger self tapper to secure the one side hinge properly. Takealot service super fast. Happy.

Chantelle, South Africa. 14 July 2016

Works very well. But the motor ceased after the warranty expired. And barely used the vacuum.

Jane, South Africa. 23 August 2017


Robert, South Africa. 11 September 2016

This vacuum cleaner has excellent suction, however, the plastic clips which hold the top onto the base are defective and break easily.

YMS, South Africa. 20 April 2017

Best value for money vacuum cleaner. Hoover, definitely a brand you can trust.

Barbara, South Africa. 16 February 2016

Good product

daniel, South Africa. 11 August 2014

incredible value for money for an 1800w vacuum cleaner.Its rugged,reliable but very noisy, but for that great price i'm not complaining.

Gillian, South Africa. 24 February 2016

An excellent product at a fantastic price!

Manoj, South Africa. 28 December 2016

It's a good product. It will be my 2nd one for separate hose.

Lesego, South Africa. 8 November 2016


Matthew, South Africa. 23 May 2017

A great product, we use it for our business and it is very good with great work power and also waste catching space.

Lauren, South Africa. 11 July 2017

Has good suction power and is a tad loud, but most vacuums are. Would recommend!

Peter, South Africa. 1 March 2016

Works well it is what we need.

Cobus, South Africa. 23 December 2015

Excellent value for money. Very rugged and likely to withstand everyday bumps and knocks.

Allen, South Africa. 25 July 2017

For the cost, it is 100%

Keegan, South Africa. 24 September 2015

Wow! Received it today after a speedy delivery (after placing order). Really impressed with it. It's the first vacuum cleaner I've ever had that's so powerful and efficient. Great product!

Claudia, South Africa. 1 May 2017

Im very happy with the vacuum. It was quite loud but you do get use it. The vacuum glides nicely on the tiles, and quite a strong machine aswell.

Kerry-ann, South Africa. 17 June 2016

Loving this product

Jasmina, South Africa. 15 December 2016

Just what I was looking for, very strong suction to pick up everything. Takealot service was excellent in terms of delivery.

marc, South Africa. 2 June 2016

Bought it a couple of months ago, came with two broken clips. Takealot replaced without hesitation.
Now the vacuum fell on its side, not from a height form the floor, and the clips has broken again... Not impressed with the cheap plastic.

Christiaan Olivier, South Africa. 28 July 2017

Value for money

Wenrui, South Africa. 4 April 2017

Awesome machine. Powerful and easy to use.

Francois, South Africa. 5 December 2016

It works well. There is a very high pitched whine(hurts the ears) when the unit is running at full speed and the nozzle is in the air. As soon as you start vacuuming (tile, or carpet - doing actual work with the unit) the whine stops.

David, South Africa. 3 December 2016

Great machine! Vacuums well and is easy to clean. Sadly, Hoover don't support this model or any parts. As a result of a freak accident (details withheld to protect the innocent) I now sit with two broken side clips that I cannot find replacement for. Highly frustrating. This Boer is going to have to maak a plan :-(

Paul, South Africa. 22 December 2014

Very powerful and works like a charm

Jano, South Africa. 28 June 2017

Works fine, one clip broke after 6 months. To return means 1-2 months without a vacuum cleaner, so I am left with a broken machine. Takealot do not want to assist with a "loan" unit or even let me purchase one and refund once return has been processed.

Farai, South Africa. 26 July 2017

Powerful package. Worthy buying. Sucks all dust and dirt like never before. For this price it's a give away. I highly recommend this product for home use.

Vanessa, South Africa. 5 February 2016

Great vacuum cleaner and is nice and quiet too!

Martin, South Africa. 18 October 2016

Very good for the price. Works as expected, no nonsense, suction power very good. Noise levels are appropriate for a vacuum cleaner - not louder or softer than any other vacuum. You can adjust the suction power making it easy to move on the floor so no issue there either. Solid.

John, South Africa. 15 April 2015

Great vacuum. Plenty of power.
Very Noisy but does great job.

Nkosenhle, South Africa. 9 June 2016

Product is very good

Keenan, South Africa. 14 July 2017

I was double minded buying this item after reading all the comments but eventually bought it and I am totally satisfied with the product. It has awesome suction power, the attachments are durable and it's not noisy like most people are saying - quieter than the Genesis Hydrovac Plus.

Steven, South Africa. 21 April 2015

This is a great product. Value for money.

mike, South Africa. 14 July 2017

The machine does exactly what I need it for no bells and whistles.

Theo, South Africa. 1 July 2016

Firstly, this was delivered within 24 hours of ordering it.

Secondly, great vacuum cleaner for it price. It is very powerful and cleans carpets with ease, and a lot better than similar watt small vacuum cleaners. It is also easy to clean out. I haven't tried to suck up anything wet or used the blow function. Obviously it is very loud

So, all in all - this is value for money

Claire, South Africa. 3 June 2015

Love this vacuum cleaner. It is lighter than the previous one I had and is just a superb buy. I couldn't have chosen a better vacuum cleaner. It's easy to use and easy to clean too!! I highly recommend it.

gwen, South Africa. 11 January 2016

brilliant !

Ursula, South Africa. 2 March 2016

All was great from ordering to delivery.

Hayden, South Africa. 22 November 2016

Our daughter forgot her bath water running in our en-suite bathroom recently. It flooded our whole room. We borrowed this same vacuum cleaner from my brother and it sucked up almost all the water from the carpets. We avoided terrible water damage as well as foul damp smells. I would recommend this vacuum cleaner to anyone. I'll be buying mine with my Christmas bonus!

CRITIC99, South Africa. 1 October 2017

Have been using it for more than 3 years and still going.

Bernhard, South Africa. 9 August 2017

The suction power not as strong as expected, but otherwise it's great.

Peter, South Africa. 29 December 2016

The cheapest yet, depite major stockist having them on special as well.. Very light and boy!! does it suck cats hair. A nice powerfull cleaner that is efficient.

Andreas, South Africa. 30 April 2015

Simple to use and works well.

Stephan, South Africa. 15 December 2016

Thank you for a great vacuum cleaner. It works very well around the house, also in the garage. I will really recommend this item for other people.

Riana, South Africa. 9 March 2017

Delivery was within the timeframe given, and the Hoover works great. Basic, but powerful and it gets the job done. It is loud, but that is because of the 1800W motor? Very happy with this purchase for the price.

Tarryn, South Africa. 9 June 2016

Great product and great service

Sharon, South Africa. 19 February 2016

Working fine thank you takealot

Loren, South Africa. 4 July 2016

Service was really good, thank you

Erik, South Africa. 9 March 2016

This vacuum cleaner sucks big time. I have not seen such a basic and subdued design deliver so much. It is an exemplary execution of industrial design, showing that we do not need flashy, expensive materials for something that will spend it's existence in a closet and occasionally get yanked out to suck up dirt and dust, get scuffed up and banged around the house and/or workshop. For essentially a bucket with a suction motor this machine is well designed and should serve as an example of form following function. I recommend this engineering marvel to anyone that needs a vacuum cleaner. It will probably never be recognized as it should be, a statement of efficiency in an era of excess. And apparently it also blows.

Ryan, South Africa. 11 April 2016

This vacuum cleaner looks good and comes at a competitive price but it's terrible to use. The high-pitched, piercing whistle it emits goes straight through your head a second or two after being turned on. I probably used it a total of 20 seconds before deciding I wouldn't be able to listen to it for longer than that.

Sarel, South Africa. 6 July 2016

First one broke within weeks.

Jan, South Africa. 10 May 2016

It does the job, but everything is sub standard. e.g. the hose, its super thin & flimsy, if it lasts 6 months, I'll be dammed. Same goes for every other part of the machine. One is too scared to touch some parts as it might break on touch. I should have spend double that on a descent quality machine. Next time ( I suspect in 6 months time ) I will go to a shop and see for myself what I will be getting.

Greg, South Africa. 5 September 2016

Excellent general purpose vacuum cleaner.

Neethu, South Africa. 16 May 2017

Poorly constructed. First one broke after 3 weeks, and the replacement broke after a month. Returned for a refund.

Debbie, South Africa. 18 August 2017

I am impressed at the turnaround time for delivery. Thank you,
Thus far the vacuum cleaner appears to be awesome.

Maryke, South Africa. 31 July 2017

Great product, great value for money. Works on bare floors and takes care of the pet hair problem. Can suck up to 23 liters of water. Very easy to clean.

Charlotte, South Africa. 23 November 2016

Excellent. Very light and user friendly.

Stephanie, South Africa. 13 January 2017

Really powerful and for the size, it is actually not heavy at all. Very happy.

Liezel, South Africa. 3 February 2017

Will not recommend this to anyone.

Pieter, South Africa. 24 October 2016

Had it for one week. Not quiet, but also not nearly as noisy as expected from some of the reviews! Yes, you have to handle it with care, but it does its job of cleaning without any problems. Good buy for the price.

thys, South Africa. 17 March 2017

This is the 3rd exchange due to very poor latch fittings made of plastic/carbon which does not last long even with careful handling.

Daniel, South Africa. 10 May 2016

It arrived very quickly and in good order. I have only used it once so far, but am very impressed with its suction power! My only problem with the unit is that the suction is so strong the vacuum head doesn't move well/easily on carpet. The unit itself rolls easily and is generally easy to maneuver. Many of the reviews I read complained of it being too loud, so I was expecting that; but, I was pleasantly surprised to find that it is quieter than my previous upright vacuum - still loud, but not unusually loud. Very satisfied with my purchase, thus far.

Nadine, South Africa. 9 June 2017

Very happy with the product

Wendy, South Africa. 24 April 2017

Great product!

Nicolaas, South Africa. 28 April 2016

One of the clips broke off instantly without any real force being applied and the sound that it makes is extremely piercing - not normal.

Anette, South Africa. 2 February 2016

Absolutely the best service ever.

Jody, South Africa. 8 September 2017

After purchasing what I thought was an established brand the following problems occurred: Shortly after receiving it, the cheap plastic latches holding the top onto the bottom broke off one by one. Then a few weeks after the 12 month warranty expired, the machine just stopped working. I have seen the same problems happen to others that have reveiwed this machine. Do not purchase it, its rubbish.

Stefanie, South Africa. 11 January 2016

Very satisfied

Rozanne, South Africa. 18 July 2017

Love the vacuum cleaner and sucking power is amazing!

pragasen, South Africa. 11 October 2016

Not really worth it. I purchased one a few months back, and it stopped working.

Maretha, South Africa. 2 August 2017

excellent product and excellent service as always

Jonathan, South Africa. 29 February 2016

Great product is a little flimsy but works great and plenty suction power

Gabi, South Africa. 22 August 2017

I've always purchased this vacuum, the overall quality has dropped significantly- very disappointed.

Christine, South Africa. 23 May 2016

Works excellent

Cape Town, South Africa. 30 June 2017

Great product for the price, I don't notice any whine that I've heard about before. Its light and easy to use, our office staff who get to use it more than I do love it as much as I do!

Tendani Tendani Tendani, South Africa. 15 November 2016

best machine ever, I love it.

Justice, South Africa. 16 October 2015

Powerful and easy to assemby.

jade s, South Africa. 26 November 2015

powerful machine but it made an awful screeching sound when used. too loud and uncomfortable to stand. I had to return mine... maybe I had a faulty one??

Luke, South Africa. 2 February 2017

Great Service from Takealot
But the Vacuum, is not a great quality product.
First one I bought, made an incredibly high pitch sound, and the clips on the side of the vacuum where broken. I returned it, the replacement works fine, sucks well, but is incredibly noisy. I would not purchase this vacuum again.

Henry, South Africa. 10 December 2016

Simple design, very strong engine. It doesn't over promise and as long as you keep its filter bag clean and dry it will last a long time. We bought two since it's not the easiest thing two carry up and down stairs.

Hendrik, South Africa. 1 February 2016


Anthony, South Africa. 16 January 2017

good value for money. Great suction power although a bit noisy

Mitzi , South Africa. 25 February 2016

Brilliant machine...looks like industrial machine and with the name and the quality of build really gives a feeling of quality.
Very good price as well if you compare to what is out there in terms of quality and kw.

Bradley, South Africa. 2 January 2017

Great product, the pipe feels a bit flimsy though.

nishal, South Africa. 18 May 2017

Excellent machine. sucks well and loudly too. except for last week it blows dust everywhere...
Still to investigate whether the bag is tore. Used for light duty vacuuming around the house.

Chris, South Africa. 19 April 2016

I read many negative reviews about this vacuum, but so far it is working very well. There is a high pitched noise as others have said, but I have never expected a vacuum to be quiet. Very good machine for the price you pay.

lisa, South Africa. 29 September 2017

Brilliant vacuum. The only one I will ever buy, lasts long if you look after it.

iuliana, South Africa. 16 January 2017

The worst ever I had....
Not a month since I got him and the sound become worse and worse and now smells like smoke .i guess is just not worth the money at all.

Margaret, South Africa. 8 June 2017

Works like a bomb! I was without a vacuum cleaner for a few weeks before deciding to buy this one, and it has cleaned up the backlog well! My domestic worker is thrilled. I am a bit wary having read so many comments about the plastic clips, so we'll be extra careful when opening and closing. Great price on Take-a-lot - cheaper than anywhere else for the same product.

Samuel, South Africa. 10 February 2017

Very nice product, Looks a little industrial but it was not bought to win a beauty contest. It gets the work done.

Barry, South Africa. 16 June 2016

A hidden gem. Works excellently for pet hair and tiled floors.

David Richard Storey, South Africa. 3 April 2017

I am very happy with my vacuum. Excellent suction, large capacity and easy to clean.

Warren, South Africa. 13 September 2017

Sucks better than my wife :)

Nick, South Africa. 27 June 2017

Very good. Powerful suction causes whisteling noise but not that bad. Overall Good

piet, South Africa. 12 November 2016

Since I had received the vacuum cleaner last Saturday, I had not used it very much in a week. So far I am quite happy with it as it has quite some sucking power.
I do experience that the cord is somewhat short, but one adapts to that by sourcing another plug to get to the reach required.
The machine is also not as loud, referring to some of the reviews I had read.
I also find it a little bulky when it comes to storage.
Overall, a very good product for the price.

Jasmin, South Africa. 2 April 2016

Takealot Service excellent.

Machine is worthless, both clips broken - machine stopped working twice. Only used 4 months.

Elizma, South Africa. 18 August 2016

What a sucker! (In the best possible way...)

Jarryd, South Africa. 23 March 2016

Same day delivery is brilliant and great product

Sihaam, South Africa. 6 July 2017

It's a powerful vacuum cleaner and easily gets the job done. It is a bit noisy, but the noise is bearable and expected from such a powerful and effective vacuum cleaner.

Anton, South Africa. 12 December 2016

Good sturdy industrial type of vacuum cleaner, no problems as of yet. Its quite light for its size. Only draw back is the noise, but it does its main job good. I am satisfied.

Elizabeth, South Africa. 20 July 2017

Very happy with our purchase.

Nicholas, South Africa. 13 September 2017

Good strong quality. Powerful suction.

Lucas, South Africa. 5 July 2017

Used it twice and I am happy with the Hoover.

Jonathan, South Africa. 28 August 2017

Works extremely well, amazing suction and the noise level is like any other vacuum cleaner. Worth every cent

Natasha, South Africa. 13 May 2016

It works great.

Charl, South Africa. 30 June 2017

A few months in and still going strong.

natalie, South Africa. 27 June 2016

Great product, very powerful

Justine, South Africa. 22 March 2017

I love this HOOVER. It is very strong and sucks up all the dirt. The noise it makes is nothing out of the norm for a powerful machine. I love everything about it so far!

Johann, South Africa. 27 June 2017

The second unit I received, after I sent the first unit back due to being defective, was also broken. Fortunately I could repair the second unit. I did not send the second unit back, because I needed a vacuum cleaner.

zanap, South Africa. 23 March 2017

Service excellent! A good buy and fantastic with getting discounts.

PAUL, South Africa. 2 November 2016


Itumeleng, South Africa. 4 October 2016

Hoover doesn't work anymore, after one month.

Rencia, South Africa. 13 September 2016


Lynne, South Africa. 15 September 2016

After reading all the mixed reviews about this vacuum I was a bit skeptical. I am glad I did some more homework and went to see for myself at stores that sold the item before making my final decision. I have not experienced any whistling sounds which I am very pleased about and the design seems very sturdy and solid.

It is a great vacuum in terms of suction which is what it is meant to do. The blowing function works but not nearly as well as the suction.

Great service received from the Takealot team and I am really pleased with the purchase.

Thank you!

Thomas, South Africa. 24 May 2017

Great product, work excellent. The vacuum cleaner is easy to clean, and the bags can easily be replaced/cleaned. If you are looking for a reliable vacuum cleaner, this is perfect.

Lylanie, South Africa. 4 October 2017

Very happy with the vacuum cleaner

Courtenay, South Africa. 18 April 2017

Does the job - decent accessories and cable length makes it effecient

only complaint would be the noise but hey its a vacuum cleaner

Would buy again

Brenton, South Africa. 19 April 2017

Abit noisy very high pitched, but works a treat

Deon, South Africa. 2 December 2016

This product is worth every cent, works like a charm.

Janelle, South Africa. 15 August 2017

Love it! It is powerful enough to get the beach sand out of my car mats which was a challenge for my previous vac. The clips however are not very strong and broke after a week, but all in all I am happy with my purchase.

Aisha, South Africa. 5 March 2017

This is the second Hoover I bought thus far, the clips on the side keep breaking. Quite disappointing as this is a really nice vacuum cleaner. The bag inside has also broken. Trying to source one as well.

George, South Africa. 10 August 2017

Happy with my purchase so far!!

Thomas, South Africa. 18 July 2017

Awesome product. Just what I need in a vacuum: strong and simple. People are silly to complain about noise, its a vacuum cleaner, not a picnic on a Sunday afternoon in the park.

Adri, South Africa. 8 October 2017

Great product!

Igna Michelle, South Africa. 10 July 2017

This product does the job! Lightweight and easy to move around. Some may find it quite noisy, but it does not bother me at all.

JB, South Africa. 13 December 2016

Machine itself is very powerful and works well. The BIGGEST issue is the suction hose. Due to the material the hose is made of, it makes an unbearable screeching noise which will certainly deafen you. The company that manufactures the machine should definitely look into this defect.

Deon, South Africa. 10 January 2017

Works really well. Very happy with our Hoover.

Samantha, South Africa. 19 January 2017

This is a super, simple, powerful, foolproof vacuum cleaner. No fiddly bits to worry about. Our last one died after less than two years, which is a bit of a worry, although it probably wasn't treated with much respect. We liked it so much we replaced it.

Vale, South Africa. 20 July 2017

very easy to operate...

Shaun, South Africa. 29 May 2017

The vacuum cleaner works well, but the double extension handle does not join well together and is frustrating to use when cleaning the floor.

Carla, South Africa. 17 May 2017

When it's working, it does so really well. However, this is now the second time that I'm having to return it for the same reason: just loses all suction power. Not sure if it's a common defect with this make?

Andrew, South Africa. 7 March 2017

It is a powerful machine able to pick up fine dust as well as coarser stuff. Considering the power of the motor, the noise is well within reason. The easy change of the setting from smooth surface to carpet is convenient. It is easy to assemble, disassemble and clean.
Delivery was remarkably quick, within three days.

bronwyn, South Africa. 11 May 2017

I love my hoover. its powerfull and sucks like it should. the noise doesn't bother me as it is a vacuum after all. really an awesome machine. very pleased that I made this choice.
Thank you

William, South Africa. 1 June 2017

Great product.

Nick, South Africa. 1 September 2017

I have already had to send this product back once, so hopefully my latest order will not be faulty.

Tanya, South Africa. 15 September 2017

This vacuum cleaner works like a bomb.. Love it. It's easy to use, easy to clean and is light to carry. Great value for money.

Andrei , South Africa. 11 September 2017

Totally impressed with this hoover. It has excellent suction although a little bulky, it is light weight and easy to manoeuvre around. The pipes that you attach to the brush on the end are off a slightly flexible type of plastic that allows you to put a fair amount of pressure of them so you do not have to worry to much that the pipes may crack when hoovering rugs etc. It has a decent length cord which unfortunately is not retractable, however you are able to coil the cord around the top of the machine. This machine will not disappoint, whenever I use it my place feels like someone has come in and professionally cleaned. Worth every penny!

Carla, South Africa. 8 September 2017

Product did not include all attachments necessary to operate it. Return has been logged.

Keamogetswe, South Africa. 21 September 2017

Beautiful service, Machine works perfectly.
I am happy and getting ready to purchase something else.
