The Sebo X4 Extra is in our opinion the most reliable and versatile upright vacuum cleaner you can buy and at just £249 we feel is a bargain. This German upright is relatively lightweight at just 7.4 KG yet it's quality and reliability is unrivalled. Other features we love about this vacuum cleaner is that it is very user friendly and versatile with its built in hose & tools the Extra version that we sell even comes with an additional expandable hose that simply fits to the existing hose and allows the user to vacuum a whole flight of stairs or car without having to move the machine . The Sebo X4 has easy access points right through to help locate blockages and the Roller brush can be simply removed by the press of a button without need to fiddle with belts. As far as we know Barlows have never had to change a worn belt on a Sebo X4 as it is a cogged design similar to that of a car timing belt. This machine is so well engineered we can confidently sell it to customers not only for domestic use but to those who wish to use it also for light commercial use such as offices, restaurants etc. What's more is that the Sebo is British Allergy Foundation approved and comes with a 5 year parts and labour Guarantee.
