Commercial Hoovers What do you use ?

Posted by Les (Les), 26 January 2004
We need to purchase some bigger Hoovers.
We have been using the versatile 'Henry's' and found them to be great on most jobs.
However we do have some larger carpet areas to deal with and want something with a power head.
What do you use, I thought about Sebo's but respect your comments.

Hi Les
        We use Henrys as well for most of our jobs. I think you can get a turbo head to go on a Henry but i dont know how good they are. Wink

I use a henry and although good, it does seem to snag a lot, can't get it around corners (snags on any corner doorway etc) and seems to be back breaking (is it just me?)

I am tendering for 2 large commerical contracts so i am on the verge of ordering a twin vac upright, looks more professional and less bits to cart about.

thoughts guys 'n gals?

Hi Petra,
Do the power head drive belts last long on your Sebo's ?
I had a power head for a Numatic in the past and it was sooo unreliable. Spent more time putting the belt back on than working Grin
