    Brilliant bit of kit and you can get a pack of 5 dust bags off ebay for around 25 (I slice the bottom of the bag about 4-5inches then fold it over and keep closed with bulldog clips, the bags last for ages this way)

    Thanks for the input guys I eventually went for a Nilfisk 26-21 Two main reasons first I don't do that much work and two they are very cheap all most throw away money. Have done about six plots now and find it very good but essential to use the genuine bag, also if you buy a pack of four from screwfix it come with a small secondary filter bag which goes inside the main filter. One bag lasted me about four plots and cost 2, I can live with that.
