Our Numatic HVR200A Vacuum Review

Numatic HVR200A Henry Review

Arguably the most popular vacuum cleaner in the UK over the last couple of decades is the Numatic HVR200A aka the Henry Hoover.  It's reached this level of popularity for good reason - being both extremely durable as well as performing to a very high standard.  They're used everywhere from commercial environments by office cleaners, to households across the UK, and are proven to be versatile, reliable and effective at their job. In this review we take a look at the classic HVR200A to see if it still cuts the mustard against the newer vacuum cleaners on the market.

In terms of design , little has changed - it still features the same hard wearing and solid base unit, which accommodates a large 9 litre vacuum bag.  The 1200w motor is also very reliable, and we're yet to hear about one breaking down. Overall weight is 6.6kg and measures 340mm x 340mm x 370mm for the main vacuum body, so storage is fairly straight forward too.  Various accessories are also included with the Henry Hoover, making it suitable for everything from larger rooms to stairs, as well as cars and caravans.  In short, it's still the perfect all rounder, and although it might be lacking in featuring a modern design, in terms of function, performance and reliability, it can't be beat.

In use, the Numatic HVR200A offers the same reliable performance it always has.  Several of our testers have a Henry Hoover at home, one of whom has used the same model for 14 years without complaint.  It removes dirt and dust effectively from a variety of surfaces, and even cleaned a deep rug without any issues or missing a spot.  The accessories give the HVR200A a degree of flexibility, and enable it to vacuum cars and caravans - the long hose and 10m power cord means you can use it in areas that not many other vacuum cleaners can reach.  Asides from the occasional hoover bag change, the Henry Hoover just keeps on going - we've accidentally dropped them down stairs, used them on debris left over from building work, and tested them pretty hard over the years, and are yet to wear one out.  If you value function, performance and reliability over modern designer looks, then there is simply no rival for the Numatic HVR200A, which considering it's long life span offers truly exceptional value.

Our Conclusion for the Numatic HVR200A Vacuum Cleaner

Unrivaled in terms of reliability and performance, the HVR200A Henry Hoover from Numatic offers stunning value, and will last for years.  They're virtually indestructible, feature a strong suction and incredible overall performance.  Highly recommended!

Customer Reviews for the Numatic HVR200A Vacuum Cleaner

"Was after a new hoover and decided to go for the classic Numatic HVR200A "Henry Hoover" - I had one years ago and it was always reliable.  My parents have had one for years, and whilst it doesn't look particularly modern or as fancy as new vacuum cleaners, it just gets the job done without fuss.  My mate uses one for his decorating business, clearing up dust and dirt every day, and he's yet to break his despite years of abuse.  Put simply, it's the ultimate reliable vacuum cleaner - it might not look flash but it will outlast any other model" Jeremy, Portsmouth

"I've had one of these Henry Hoovers for years - it's been dropped down stairs, chucked in the van, survived 3 house moves, cleared up everything from dust to sand to confetti to grit, and still keeps coming back for more punishment.  The bags very rarely need changing, but they're pretty cheap and easy to fit.  Keeps my house looking clean, and doesn't miss a speck of dirt.  Recommended!" David, Kent

"The Henry Hoover is a classic design, and one which is used by everyone from office cleaners to home owners to builders.  It's tough, hard wearing and I've never heard of one breaking.  Very easy to use, strong suction, reliable and pretty lightweight too.  The Numatic HVR200A is quite simply best hoover I've ever used!" Marge, Norwich
