is there any hoovers available that workof low wattage
Try Halfords. As well as the somewhat underpowered usual 12V types they do some higher powered rechargeable and 12V models. We brought one for about £80 which is good for keeping the carpets reasonably clear of dried mud, sand and grass during a trip. Never going to be as good as the Dyson though :Laughing:
No can't beat a good old dustpan and brush.
Tear up the carpet and have the laminate floor.....sweep up, sweep out, job done! Your on holiday!!:BigGrin:
low wattage = low power= (in a vacuum) low suction.
take two or three times longer to do half a job.
for the actual use it will get buy a regular hoover.
ours is 1700w and even that struggles with dog hairs etc.
bought one (12v) 2 weeks ago very poor suckion, use my house hold hoover in the end did the job 10 times faster Don't waste your money.
I have a battery operated vacuum cleaner - it's a Ryobi one which uses the same battery as their 18V drills and other tools. You can pick them up reasonably cheaply, the battery lasts a while ands it more powerful than I've ever needed.
You may also want to look at alternative rechargeable ones over low wattage mains / 12V options.
do you mean low voltage ie 12v
or low wattage
If you mean low wattage mains, here is small cylinder vacuum cleaner at 800 watt / 230v
IMO this will be far better than any 12v machine,, the ones I've tried couldn't pull the skin off a rice pudding :Laughing:
henry hoovers have a half power mode
We never wild camp, use a small Dyson excellent results and never any problems with ehu.
We have tried a number of 'low wattage' mains cleaners and also the best in 12volt - all lack one thing - suction - we bought a Dyson Animal at a show a few years back - perfect - charges up quickly on EHU and has good suction the version we have has a powered beater bar and cleans up anything - expensive I grant but works out cheaper than the long line of useless ones we have tried.:Rofl1::Rofl1:
Never heard of this unit before until I saw it on a vacuum cleaner spec.. so had to look it up to see what it meant ..
as they say.. we never stop learning..
We have a great black & decker 12v vac that has a powered brush head and has loads of suction.
I have a very good vacuum cleaner, low voltage, low wattage. only fuel she needs is a cup of tea every now & then. That is if she can find time to makle one for me!!!!.
