Overall rating

I don’t get the negative reviews. Here is my opinion I finally traded up from V7 (which didn’t need replacing and still going strong so I gave to my mother) as I had different needs as I now have disabilities . The lightness of it is great . The bin I find so much easier to empty as the bin no longer comes off with the open hatch :-). Obviously I have no issue with the battery life as I am in a self contained disability flat so I takes just 5 mins to Hoover However what I just LOVE about it is the No hair getting caught up in the tool head. No more pulling hair out of the brush constantly. I have mid length thick grayish hair so was constantly challenged pulling it out of V7 as so much on the carpet I absolutely can’t say enough good things about it. One other plus, I can even manage to Hoover without it affecting my back.
