Finished in a sleek blue and silver exterior, the Black & Decker Pivot Dustbuster is a unique handheld vacuum cleaner.  It’s powered by an 18v battery, and delivers an incredibly powerful suction, especially considering this is a rechargeable lightweight handheld hoover.  The main selling point is the adjustable pivoting head – which enables you to set the vacuum angle in 8 different positions, giving you a 200 degree range.  This is ideal for when vacuuming awkward or hard to reach areas – no longer will you have to stretch or adjust your body into an uncomfortable position – simply set the vacuum to the desired angle instead.

In terms of portability, the Pivot Dustbuster is great – small enough to fit into tiny spaces, and lightweight at just 1.6kg.  Storage is simple enough – it simply folds up, and emptying the dust container only takes a handful of seconds.  Overall capacity is 500ml, which is quite large for a handheld – our testers were impressed.

In terms of performance, as you’d expect from Black & Decker, it’s powerful, yet runs fairly silently.  It sucked up all of the various dirt samples we tested it on, and battery life is pretty good for a handheld.

Overall, our testers really liked the Pivot Dustbuster PV1825N-GB – small and lightweight enough to be portable, yet powerful enough to make a difference.

Our Verdict for the Black & Decker Pivot Dustbuster PV1825N-GB Vacuum Cleaner

If you’re after a versatile and flexible handheld vacuum cleaner, then the 18v Black & Decker Pivot Dustbuster (PV1825N-GB) is well worth looking at – it looks sleek, is very lightweight at just 1.6kg, and has a decent level of suction.  The adjustable head is the main selling point, enabling you to reach and clean those awkward areas in your house.  Ideal for hoovering the bits your normal vacuum cleaner can’t reach – the Pivot Dustbuster comes highly recommended by us.
