I've noticed this kicking about in one of our office buildings at work but only recently had chance to take a few pics without anybody seeing and people finding out about my secret vacuum fetish LOL

I think if vacuums could talk this one would be crying "please...cut my plug off and put me out of this misery"

Yeah its the only vacuum I've spotted in this particular building. Judging by the chunk of plastic missing I think the cleaning lady may of possibly dropped it down the stairs at some point LOL

When I did commercial cleaning the company I worked for used the X4 series as they seemed to hold up really well to the abuse they got despite being a household machine. Very rarely did we have any issues with them. Sebo actually happens to be a favorite of mine for commercial cleaning.

Yikes that's a bit knackered!!

Leaving work yesterday one of the cleaners was vacuuming in reception with a Mitie branded Numatic. It stank to high Heaven of old dust and wasn't picking up a damn thing. I had to point out "I think that vacuum is full, love". She didn't even notice it wasn't picking up.

Did she take your advice and empty it though Chris?

Strange as it is, I love that musty smell bagged vacuums make after they've been stood for a few days.

I'm almost disappointed that the anti odour filter on my Miele works so well....

And Electroluxxxx.... The Sebo X range are also badged and sold under various different names as commercial machines... Hence they stand up so well.

Heres a random training video from youtube for a commercial version....

I've a customer up in the same location that use Mitie and last time I was there, I had the same experience, Mitie branded Numatic and all.
Didn't have the balls to tell her though.

What's a 'full vacuum'? Reminds me of young drivers that pull into the oil change shop and ask how they can make that 'change oil' light on their dashboard turn off.
