    After reading a post about what people thought about Mr Dysons vacuum cleaners, I need to ask what other people use.
    We have used a Dyson in the house, and a bagless Vax. We used to have a Henry but that got relegated to the garage for cleaning the cars etc, but it succumbed to a smoking related illness.
    I'd like to keep one in the van for those little domestic jobs, rather than using the customers. Any ideas?
    We have a B&D Dustbuster but that cant pick up a grain of salt.
    Something rechargeable would be handy. Cordless Dyson? or GTech?

    You thought about looking at one that uses your battery tool batteries ? Could be handy if you only want a little one.

    That's a clever idea, but I don't mind having a bank of different chargers.
    I think if you buy one of these multipacks with drills, jigsaw, SDS etc, even a radio... when the batterys eventually don't charge like they should, you maybe can't get a replacement... You've lost half a dozen power tools in one go.

    Festool for work best vac I have used. Miele cat & dog for home. Cordless have GTech OK and fine for basic cleaning and convenience Dyson which is nasty plastic and horrible bad mistake.

    Recently bought an elcheapo water vac from Stewfix to help empty some water pipes and tanks. It's surprisingly good, but feels flimsy. Still have Henry :)

    I bought a Bosch 18v hoover the other month which is perfect for the little bits in houses and it saves dragging my huge dust extractor around with me
