Q & As

Numatic John Cylinder Vacuum Cleaner 4.3 5 6 6
Peaceful vacuuming! I bought this to replace my Dyson DC24 which is a lovely compact vacuum but so noisy that I could no longer listen to the Archers through headphones when vacuuming - even at the highest volume! Although John is more bulky he is much quieter and I think the suction is better (but despite the strong suction it is still easy to push over carpets). I am very pleased with him and vaccuming is now a much more peaceful, enjoyable experience. 18 November 2014
Hate this hoover For some reason i bought one of these when i moved out from my parents (I guess because they had one). Have to say although i don't have too much issue with the suction i think the design is highly flawed. It acts like a drunk constantly falling over and gets stuck on door ways and skirting board, soooo annoying! Avoid! 19 October 2014
Repeat Purchase Bought this to replace my ageing Henry and am very pleased with it. I have had Dysons and Vax but find the Numatic products easier to use. My only complaint with this new one is that it feels a bit loose where the carpet brush fits into the hose, hence 4 stars instead of 5. 02 September 2014
Fantastic buy Brilliant just as good as my old Henry but now I have a John !! love it 05 August 2014
Numatic John Superb product, a really first class vacuum. The new John Numatic has the new lower watt motor but is far more efficient & works better than the current/ older Henry's (who will also get this superb new motor soon). The John also comes with extra's such as the airo-brush as well as the standard floor tool, making him great value. Excellent service from John Lewis too. Highly recommended. . 10 July 2014
Good buy Excellent product. I bought this model as it came with a turbo head and as I have a dog I needed something to pick up the hair she shed. 17 June 2014
