Good build quality and brilliant on carpets and floors, the swivel head is excellent as is the auto function and the running lights are surprisingly useful. It easily goes under low furniture and around table legs as the main brush is quite compact. The AEG FX9 Animal is quiet, efficient and rivals any corded upright vacuum. It is not as lightweight as some reviews make it look and using the hand tools is awkward. The whole unit needs to be lifted which makes two handed tasks like dog hair covered cushions tricky. Also it comes with several tools but doesn't have a decent crevice tool or a small stiff brush. You can only buy these separately as part of a kit that includes two tools you will already have. For an expensive machine these should be included as standard. Overall though it is convenient and effective for every day cleaning, sleek and easily manoeuverable I am very happy with my purchase.
Intelligent power and performance. With FX9's Auto Function the advanced electronics will automatically adjust the airflow and suction, to suit the surface you are cleaning & optimize dust pickup.
