The floor tool shown may vary from the product selected but the process remains the same.
Three power modes
Toggle between Suction mode 1 and 2 – and MAX mode, for stronger suction. To change modes, simply 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
Leave 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. Shake off any excess water, then leave to dry for 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.
