Cylinder vacuum cleaners consist of a main cylindrical base unit which houses the motor and dust container, which has a lengthy and flexible tube attachment which is used to suck up the dirt and dust from the flooring. This tube is usually constructed from plastic, and usually comes with a variety of head attachments for use on different floor types. The most famous example of a cylinder vacuum is the Henry model, which has sold thousands of units in the UK. These cylinder vacuum cleaners are also known as canister vacuum cleaners. The advantage of a cylinder hoover is that they often have a greater power output than their upright equivalent, due to the fact that you don’t have to move the main base unit as frequently, and so it takes less effort to hoover areas. Typically the dust containers tend to feature a greater capacity, and as such need emptying less frequently. The main disadvantage of this cylinder type of vacuum cleaner is that they can be awkward to transport up and down stairs as well as being difficult to carry between different rooms of the house.
