    Default Q-tech vacuum


    Just a quick review had the q-tech Hoover from Belmore one a month or so and what a great machine totally dustless, slightly heavy but vibrates the filters and comes with a reusable dust bag. Really impressed for money

    had mine a while now aswell, really impressed with it.
    if the zip becomes stiff just spray a bit of wd40 along it mate. works a treat.

    umm vac that wears out in few months.. mine is ok but for odd time it shuts down.. quick bang and starts again. they are big clumsy and the hose tends to brush past the control switches and cause havox while in full flow. a throw in skip offence in my younger days for sure. now i just laugh and think its my fault for wasting my soul away on a building site... best hover is no hover get some poor young sod to rub for you, give him a pole and a can of red bull..

    Haha, we had a boy like that, can of red bull and the idiot stick! We use the flex 500 now and he won't go back to using the pole. Trouble is, he is still coughing his guts up every morning travelling to site, I'm starting to feel guilty like we're putting him in an early grave

    You would think, unless they know that the product is utter shite. It's either fit for purpose, or not.

    When I bought my Flex sander, it was on offer with a Fein QA55 vacuum. After a couple of uses, the hoover started whining so it was returned and inspected by the Fein engineer. He said that it wasn't built for drywall dust because it was too fine. I keep it as a spare and have used the Hilti ever since. I reckon a lot of these cheaper vacs just aren't man enough for the job.
