Good Filter

A number of Nilfisk Buddy II 12 owners who reviewed it considered that it had a good filter. Lawrenzo said “I tightly wrapped this around the canister filter and it was much easier to clean off the fine dust” but despite that they gave this vacuum cleaner a rating of 60 out of 100.

Good Brush

A few Nilfisk Buddy II 12 owners thought it had a good brush. Lawrenzo said on Amazon in October last year “I already have a better brush unit, so I just need to source stronger dust bags”.

Good Suction

One Nilfisk Buddy II 12 owner who reviewed it mentioned that it had good suction. Lawrenzo said in their review “The canister filter soon clogged up and the unit's suction was vastly reduced” but despite that they only gave the product a score of 3 stars.


Performance

Fairly High Vacuum

At 200 kilopascals, the Nilfisk Buddy II 12 has a fairly high vacuum compared to most of the other vacuum cleaners that were released more than two years ago. The average vacuum of vacuums of a similar age and spec to this vacuum cleaner is 42kPa, and the vacuums range from 17kPa to 250kPa.

There are a number of alternative 200kPa suction vacuum cleaners currently available which you might want to consider including the Nilfisk Buddy II 18 which has better reviews.
