When is a Dyson a Hoover? When is it just £125?

OK, a misleading title perhaps.

And here on Dyson Medic, it isn’t often we write about something that isn’t a Dyson.

But a vacuum cleaner that is rather like a Dyson for just £125 new…..

Sounds cheap doesn’t it?

What if I told you it was really a Hoover? But really it isn’t, because “Hoover” isn’t printed on the box.

Are you confused yet? Not for long….

Well, it isn’t *really* a Hoover they would have us believe.

This is a brand new cyclonic upright vacuum cleaner.

It has HEPA  filtration and comes with washable filters – similar to a Dyson (it even comes with a spare filter).

It is cyclonic and bagless – similar to a Dyson.

It has a motor-driven brushroll – similar to a Dyson Ball.

It can be manoeuvred using the wrist – similar to a Dyson Ball.

It bears an uncanny likeness to the Hoover Heritage 5110 that isn’t sold in the UK.

We can’t tell you that this is a Hoover machine because it doesn’t have a Hoover badge on and it doesn’t come in a Hoover box. In fact it comes in a box with no branding whatsoever on it.

What we can tell you is that a machine remarkably similar (!) to this one is sold by Hoover in Australia and New Zealand for $300 (About £200) – take a look for yourself at this link to a major Australian retailer: Hoover Heritage 5110 (opens in a new window).


These machines are made by the original manufacturer for the UK market, with a proper moulded UK plug, etc.

These weigh 5.9 kilos (13lbs). A Dyson DC40 weighs 6.4 kilos. A Dyson DC40 Animal costs an eye watering £389.99 at the time of writing – these cost just £125!

These machines are really simple to assemble. Just click the body onto the cleaner head, and click the handle into the body. And that’s it. Less than a minute!
