Hello Ciaoers, another review here from the resident Vacuum Cleaner collector!
Today I'll be reviewing the Electrolux Tango Z5001 cylinder Vacuum Cleaner produced by Electrolux in the early 2000s.
OK, lets start with simple specifications...
The Electrolux Tango is a bagged vacuum, which can take paper bags or High Filtration bags should you pay a couple of Pounds extra for a pack. It has a powerful 1400W motor with Variable Power, or as Electrolux would have called it back in the 80s - "Electronic". The power can be reduced right down to 250W where you wouldn't know the motor was even running unless you put your ear a few inches from the motor cover, or if the task requires, it can be boosted to the full 1400W. I run mine on Eco mode 99% of the time which is 650W and more than sufficient.
On first sight you would be forgiven for thinking it has no tools, but it does. Where ? Well, I'm ashamed to say at first even I couldn't find them without being told where they were. They are in a small compartment inside the bag chamber. The tools included are a crevice tool and upholstery tool. Both of good quality.
OK, using the Tango!
It really is simple to use, you have one button which has a picture of a plug on it which when pressed automatically winds the cord in and another with the power logo on it, which, you guessed it, turns it on!
As I said, I use mine on the Eco mode nearly all the time as the suction is more than sufficient plus it is nice and quiet. If used on full power I find it actually has too much suction and is a little on the loud side.
The Tango is equipped with a long hose, a telescopic metal tube and a floor tool which lacks a hard flooring setting. Though, it can still be used on hard flooring and works well.
The flex isn't longer nor shorter than the average length.
I am sorry this review isn't longer but I can't think of anything else to say, I feel I've given you all the information you will need to know about the Electrolux Tango Z5001 to buy it with peace of mind.
I hope you have enjoyed reading!

I take your points on everything except being vintage, it is 12 years old!

Actually for buyers a lot more info is required. On the basis that it isn't on sale anymore unless you put the extra research in, state how much the length of the cord is accurately, state what tools you get exactly, actual weight since buyers are often put off by vintage machines like this, cost of the dust bags, and filtration.
