Henry Hetty HET160 Bagged Cylinder Vacuum, 620 W, 6 Litres, Pink
About this deal
Another of Numatic’s wet vacuum cleaners is the Charles. It’s less expensive than the George and doesn’t come with quite as many accessories, but is still a powerful and versatile vacuu m that’s suitable for both domestic and professional cleaning. The Henry Professional HVR240 is the commercial version of the Henry Hoover. It includes all of Henry’s features, such as a 9-litre capacity, cable rewind system and TriTex filtration, but adds a couple of features for commercial use.
Henry and Hetty’s reliable, powerful, fuss-free cleaning has made them instantly recognised and universally trusted household icons. The ultimate all rounders. Hetty Hoover is the female equivalent of the well-known Henry Hoover, but other than appearance there is actually no difference between Henry and Hetty, at least if we’re talking the standard Henry model. Hetty is pink in colour – and can be referred to as the pink Henry Hoover – whereas Henry comes in traditional red. She has her name printed on the top and comes complete with her own pretty eyelashes, but that is the only difference when compared to the Henry 160-11 model. Hetty has the same capacity, power and weight.Aside from a smaller drum capacity, the HVR160 is also lighter than the 200. It still has a 10 metre cable, on-board tool storage and energy efficient motor, but is easier to move around.
For this reason, we’ve compared Henry vacuum cleaners below before describing each in detail. So if you’re not sure which model to buy – you’ve come to the right place! Which Henry Vacuum Cleaner Should I Buy? One difference is the drum shape. As you can see from the photo, the HVR240 has a furniture guard above the wheels to protect fixtures and fittings. The Professional also has switches at the front of the machine for easy access.Hetty never misses a spot. The Crevice Tool is perfect for those awkward spots, whilst the Dusting Tool provides appropriate levels of care to delicate surfaces like shelves, ornaments and picture frames.
The Hetty Hoover wattage of 620 watts is almost half of its previous 1200 watts, and whilst a reduction of that significance sounds large, there has been no weakness in performance. If anything, Hetty seems even more powerful now thanks to changes made by Numatic to improve the machine’s efficiency. However, Charles is quite a bit lighter than George and doesn’t come with as many accessories as his older brother. The main thing missing with Charles when compared to George is the extra carpet / upholstery cleaner. If this is something you require, then you’d be better off going for George, but if it’s something you don’t feel you need, then Charles is the man for you as he’s generally cheaper than George and lighter. Probably best known for this appearance – something which has helped to make this vacuum cleaner something of a celebrity and household name – it shouldn’t be forgotten that he is also a very capable vacuum. Whilst the look and feel has remained pretty similar over the years, a number of tweaks have been made to improve his performance, ensuring that this vacuum continues to be the go to choice for many homes and workplaces.Like the full-size Hetty, the HET160 has on-board storage for tools, a cable rewind system and energy-saving motor. The only real differences are the smaller size and 6 litre capacity. This is still relatively large for a cylinder vacuum, but means you don’t need as much storage space as you do for the regular Hetty or Henry. Numatic calls the James Hoover the “frugal” member of the Henry family, as it aims to provide a similar level of cleaning performance at a lower cost.
