Useful tips

  • Two power modes

    Toggle between Powerful mode – for longer suction – and MAX mode, for stronger suction. Just hold down the trigger and slide the control back and forth. 

  • Switch accessories quickly

    The quick-release tools click into place, and release in moments by simply depressing the release switch.

  • Don't overfill it

    To maintain suction, keep an eye on the bin and empty it as soon as debris reaches the MAX marker.

Secure the charging dock

ave at least 1.2m between the floor and the lowest screw point. Make sure it's within easy reach of a power socket so the cable has some slack.

Wash the filter regularly

Rinse under a cold tap until the water runs clear – you don't need any detergents. Squeeze out excess water and leave to dry on its side (at least 24 hours) before refitting.

Clean awkward spaces

Remove the wand and connect your chosen tool directly to the inlet pipe to use the vacuum as a handheld.
