Ewbank® Evolution Manual Sweeper 5 "Superb!" Mrs Davies 07 November 2009 I bought this because I used one as a child, am worried about power cuts in the future and have problems with short white dog hairs (JRT) of which my vacuum cleaner makes heavy weather... It is superb! Very simple settings, picks up those dog hairs and the children (11 & 14) like using it too. Mind you we live in the country and do not have any fluffy carpets - otherwise these other comments seem to be about a different machine! Recommended.
