    You could try renting a Hilti at 17 per month plus vat. Best vacuum by far, had mine four years, no bags. If any thing went wrong they pick it up,leave you with another and return it fixed(mine has never gone wrong).

    i bought a q-tech but it is knackered already! sounds like a jumbo jet also very heavy to lump about.
    just bought a nilfisk alto and could not be happier. very very light & quiet. would recommend it all day long.
    model nilfisk aero 26-01

    Hi Paul - re: noise - this should have been fixed under warranty - small fan inside seen a few of these go after 12 months usage although now improved and not seen it happen for a long while

    If you want it fixed so you can keep as a spare vac let me know

    Does this model have the female 110 volt point on it as my sander has the male connection

    Hilti is by far the best. I had one on Fleet too. To buy, they are 599 + vat. I've just bought a Fein Dustex 25 for 205 + vat. Didn't want a big hoover this time as i'm trying not to do too much taping as I fucking hate it now. Jase Hag bought a Q-tech and had problems with it. Load of shit by all accounts.
