Out with the Dyson, and in with the Gtech AirRAM K9 and Gtech Multi

Tuesday, July 21st, 2015

Over five years ago, I purchased my first Dyson, and blogged here - I Thought My Carpets Were Clean Until I purchased a Dyson.

The big problem with the Dyson DC20, cylinder vacuum cleaner, it has a cord, and it’s very heavy, awkward to clean stairs, and very heavy to carry upstairs to clean the bedrooms, and landing….nothing wrong with it, and it’s just gone out of guarantee.

Honey sales have been good, so time for a new gadget, to help me (my new contract is to do the vacuum-ing around the house!).

After watching the TV Adverts, and reading all the reviews, I’ve decided to purchase a Gtech AirRAM K9 and Gtech Multi.

I placed the order with Gtech’s website on Sunday 19th July, and I was surprised it was not as automated as some websites, what I mean is, the email confirming your order, I never got one, one was never sent…and the Order Online, when I track it, is still sitting in Processing…..my other niggle, Gtech charge Credit Card holders 2% - this is a bit old fashioned! but they do not charge anything for Paypal, after a recent discussion by Martin Lewis about Paypal, Credit Cards and Losing your Section 75 Rights - this here Warning! Don’t use PayPal to pay on a credit card - I thought stuff Paypal on this one! But hey come on Gtech 2%, are you not making enough cash, to re-negotiate with the credit card companies!

yesterday, I was surprised to get an email from Interlink (sister company of DPD - I didn’t know this until today!) advising me I would get a delivery today from Gtech, and early this morning, as was advised Interlink would deliver between 13:57 - 14:57, and at 14:05 I was the proud owner of a Gtech AirRAM K9 and Gtech Multi.

So logistics and 2% CC charge aside -

WOW - these are fantastic - cordless, light, powerful, Dyson move over, there is a New Hoover King - Gtech! I’ve been vacuuming everywhere, until the charge they come with ran out, so both are on charge for four hours!

and they’ve got a fantastic new advert featuring music by Queen. (Freddie Mercury).

The old Electrolux Contour

The old Electrolux Contour

Well it finally had to happen our Electrolux Contour vacuum cleaner which we purchased in 1989, has finally gone to Vacuum Cleaner heaven. It’s typical after just purchasing replacement bags and drive belts, but it would appear that the motor is worn out, and it no longer sucks! When this was first advertised on the TV circa 1989, they showed it holding a dinner plate it had that much suction - not any more! It’s been repaired countless times, and it broke three years ago and we went and purchased an in-expensive Electrolux Cyclone bagless vacuum cleaner- this was rubbish, the filters were always blocking and needed cleaning under a tap every time it was used, so we stopped using it, and I fixed the Electrolux Contour again!

So, we are no longer Dyson virgins, as I purchased a new Dyson DC20 Stowaway later this evening, before taking the Contour vacuum cleaner apart earlier, and in the process damaged one of Lindsey’s ornaments in the lounge. The Carved Gourd now has a hole in it! (and you cannot bring anything home without the cats inspecting it!)

The amount of suction this vacuum cleaner has got is unbelievable, the carpets get sucked up, off the underlay, and it looks like I’m Arnold Schwarzenegger in Terminator!
