Hi everyone, I wondered if anyone could recommend a vacuum cleaner which is easy on the hands/wrists? I currently have a Vax cordless but I'm finding it painful to use. Thank you!

We both have long hair. Got into the mechanics of the rollers impossible to clean. It broke. Was very upset about it, £200 wasted.
Too ill at the time to deal with it then went past guarantee date. So they got away with it.
They must know if was rubbish because soon after buying ours they modified it and produced s new model!
Google Sebo, I believe they're the best. I'd love to try one of their lightweight models.
I have my late Aunt's upright Sebo it's excellent. She died 20 years ago, it's St least 21 years old! Problem is it's a bit heavy for me.
Let's know by how you get on.
I bought a Dyson v8. Very light and easy to use. It’s 3 years old and no problems. Last year I bought a Dyson V11 and kept the V8 upstairs. The V11 is a bit heavier but boy does it pick up great.
Don’t laugh but I’m a vacuum cleaner freak. I also have a Miele which is too heavy a Panasonic which is light but doesn’t pick up too good and a Sebo which is very heavy for me but is good if workmen are in . I have had a Gtech which was light but it didn’t do a good job on carpet.
Hope this helps because I like you can’t get to the shops to try them out.
I did order a cordless shark off qvc but it was far too heavy on my wrists so sent it back
I’ve got a shark cordless upright from Qvc it’s light. You get 60 days to try off them. I’ve also got Osteoarthritis and Psa and I manage ok. My dyson broke plus was heavy. I’ve got long hair shark have the hair wrap. Don’t get me wrong first time it did and I had to cut it away. But since then it’s not. Only had it a month.
I have the same problem when sending texts it drives me mad, lucky you we have a border collie and he never stops shedding his hair, I used to have long hair too but still found it very good for picking up hairs, though I have seen Shark have made ones that stops it clogging up the brushes. Love & Hugs Xx Also mine has little air freshners in with the filters with you can buy replacements but I just but a couple of drops of rose oil on them and it makes it smell lovely as you clean.
I have a Gtech air ram and a hand held one an a G Tech carpet sweeper. I spent decades buying one vaccum cleaner after another which left me struggling and out of breath and very hot. I find the original large G Tech the easiest to use. I use the hand held one for the stairs. The carpet sweeper I don't recommend as it won't stay flat on the floor. I have to constantly press it back down only for it to rise of the floor again. And this is from new. I bought the other two about 3 years ago. They do need maintaining at times. Mine keeps getting my hair caught up in the brushes. And the filters need washing. Proberly about every 2 months. It is the best I have found and charges quite quickly.
I have a shark rocket duo, its light and drives itself, all I do is steer it. perfect for me. like Nuttyshirlz said I also brought mine form QVC as you can try them before committing to keep it. I have a small dog and its excellent with hair & easy to clean rollers, filters and empty dust container as I am in constant pain. I gave my old faithful henry to my daughter as he was becoming way too heavy for me to pull around x (replacement filters are good price to replace too)
