Greetings vacuumland. I haven't seen much love for a hyla vacuums up here. they're one of my favorite vacuum companies out there. So I thought I'd share this video how much it picked up after the hotel maid vacuum. Wondering how many others fancy Hyla in their collections?

Much love for my Hyla GST I also have the EST model With the brushless motor, in the box, in the closet in my bedroom. I get it out when guests come over.

We cannot forget the ocean blue. Another awesome vacuum that uses water and a separator.

I have a EST on the way, canít wait as Iíve never used a hyla before. I like that the est has the direct connect, thatís a big part of whatís been keeping me from getting one guess Iím spoiled by my rainbow black.

The Hyla vacuum could have been used in the "Another Dirty Room" series on YouTube-where the hosts review various motel rooms-most VERY disgusting-the place needs more than a vacuum cleaner to clean it up!Go to the series on YouTube to see!

I have a Hyla GST, it's a good machine but overpriced. If you want a machine that will work just as well, go for the Sirena or Quantum. The Hyla is a good machine though, it cleans very well, the separator is rather unique.

Has anyone ever taken a Hyla apart

and if so.....I would be interested to know that (since the separator never needs to be cleaned) do the fans still get dirt on them? I imagine even though the separator never needs to be cleaned, that these machines can still be abused by owners but I think there's be less chance of abuse since the separator is self-cleaning.

@n0oxy all door-to-door vacuums are overpriced. this is definitely the type of thing you need to get on the second hand market.
I personally wouldn't recommend this Serena. Too many of them have come in for repairs like all that have been sold.
The hose is a bit too short and the power nozzle is a little too cheaply made.

I would agree with you that all door to door vacuums are overpriced. But, if you have the salesman in your home & you're ready to buy, that's why you haggle him down as low as he will go. Even go onto Ebay or other websites that have newer secondhand models, & threaten the salesman if he doesn't lower his price, the website gets his business & not him. And like you said, if he doesn't give in, then buy secondhand & save some $$$.

As for seeing too many of the Sirena vacuums coming in for repairs, the hose being too short & the powerhead too cheaply made? Well, let's be realistic here - What would you expect from a vacuum that's Made In China with Globally Sourced Components & a Italian motor? Heck, the Italian motor right there should give you a clue as to it's build quality....some Italian made products are good, but most are cheaply made, overpriced junk. For that reason alone, I would be suspect of it's build quality. Plus, it's Made In China & it sells for 1/3 the list price of a Rainbow. How can you possibly compare the quality of the Sirena to something that sells 3x the price? You can't!

As for not liking the powerhead, that wand & powerhead neck Sirena uses now looks identical to the Wessel Werk central vac powerhead neck & wand that is used in central vac hose kits, with some slight modification to the top of the wand to fit the Sirena hose handle. I would be willing to bet that a Wessel Werk EBK340 or EBK360 direct connect powerhead should be directly compatible with that wand, no modification required. Also, maybe you don't remember this, but back a couple years ago, about a year after Sirena first entered the market, they offered a black Premium model with a Plastiflex hose, wand & EBK 360 soft clean powerhead with direct connect wand. I would be willing to bet they carried over the wand to their original powerhead with slight modification to the top of the wand & of course new powerhead neck.
