So I need a vacuum cleaner, hopefully one that is semi decent at picking up pet hair.
Though only have a budget of around $130. So hopefully there is something out there!
Anyone have any recommendations please?


TIA

I have a cheap nilfisk that I got from target about 5 years ago. I love it, easy to use, great suction, well designed. I think I paid around $100 for it. I dont think they sell them at target any more, but I am just so happy with it that I would recommend the brand.

My biggest tip is buy a Kogan! I have not looked back. We brought the more powerful model and oh my gosh it can suck. We paid $79 and my hubby waited until they were offering free delivery. Check their website out and read the reviews.

I recently bought a Kambrook one from Target for $99 (looking at their website I think I must have got it when it was half price as it looks like it now maybe $199).  This one http://shop.target.com.au/kambrook-bagless...-cleaner-kbv450

Anyway it came with two foots - one normal and one with rotating bristles.  

It has so far doing a good job of picking up pet hair as I am constantly emptying out the container(I have 2 dogs and  cats that shed everywhere).

I figured if I spent $100 on a vacuum cleaner a year I'm still ahead considering the time I spent $700 on a hoover that only lasted 3yrs.


The model below this one the kbv250 is $79 at Target on sale reduced from $139. I just bought one and so far very happy with it. I don't think you will get a better vacuum for this price.
