    Everything seems to be as advertised. Excellent suction, excellent at picking up bits of whatever, runs for around one hour, clear charging indication, easy to empty and clean brush rotor, the three power modes as advertised, the alert for need to empty and clean works and is clearly displayed, solid durable construction and elegant appearance. No complaints so far. Possibly a pity it doesn’t feature separate rechargeable battery packs but I’ll wait to see how long the installed battery lasts before attenuating.

    I can whizz round my hard floors in a jiffy. Quite hard to push on carpets as the suction is strong! It does what I wanted it for though. Very pleased with it.

    Golden Review Award: 2 From Our UsersThe new Bosch Athlet Serie 6 BBH6POWGB ProPower is much harder to use on carpets but is very good on wood floors and tile floor . I have the older Bosch and that is very good, the new Athlet serie 6 will help any customer that has a larger floor area to work on as it last longer in power.This product is a 4 to 5 star rate and the price is top end but for a new model is right .

    Golden Review Award: 9 From Our UsersVery easy to use – light and versatile. Flexes easily to go into corners, under things and round awkward areas. So handy just to grab quickly to clear up as messy area. Good suction power and good length of charge. A great choice.

    Golden Review Award: 13 From Our UsersI have a quite a large 3 storey house so I have more than one of these machines, one of which is now almost 5 years old. The good points are :-

    Very simple and easy to clean the filters and roller, which is essential to maintain suction. When suction begins to reduce, simply clean and dry the filter components and remove anything wrapped around the roller and it will return to full suction performance.

    Very manoeuvrable and more comfortable to use than stick vacuums which require you to support much of the weight at the top end.

    Better suction on full power than stick machines I have tried.

    The cons :-

    Removing the floor head and using attachments is only easy if you have strong fingers. I gave up bothering fairly quickly and bought a separate hand held device for edges, stairs etc. For an elderly person like my mother who has arthritis in her fingers it would be impossible to remove the floor head and use the attachments.

    Battery life is limited and once the battery charging has degraded (around 2 years or a little more depending on use) there is no cost effective option to replace the batteries with new ones. Watch the YouTube video of how to replace them and you will see that this is a job for an experienced engineer which involves use of a soldering iron, it is not a DIY job for anyone other than a real DIY expert. My older Athlet will now just last long enough for my hard kitchen floor, which takes only a few minutes to vacuum, but it runs out of power very rapidly. Any chance of doing a whole house, even a small one, would be hopeless. On the plus side it re-charges to give that short performance time very quickly.

    My advice for buying one of these, which does an excellent job provided you accept its limitations, is to buy one of the older models when available for an offer price, accepting it’s limited life span and that it is effectively a disposable product.
