This was not a wise purchase. £60 from Argos, 18 months ago. Frustration from the start. The tools were 'held' in place on the handle above the tubes but always in the way, cumbersome - so I removed it (but have nowhere to keep the tools now). The filters/cyclone clogs repeatedly and after a only a little use. Emptying and washing(!) the filter seems to the only way to get this blighter to work anywhere near expected. Forget to do this, i.e. get it out for a quick vacuuming and it'll overheat and shutdown and the reset takes AGES! The flexible plastic tube collapses easy especially if you turn on the cleaner too quickly. The flexible tube material is simply too thin or the ribs not big enough to give strength. ANd boy, is it noisy! This is a mega loud vacuum - if only it worked to match the noise, you could put up with it. Its only plus point is that it looks good (but so what?). It is only marginally usable - looking for a new cleaner now - won't be VAX or Dyson (just as abysmal in my opinion).
