A new brand on the UK domestic scene is Nilco, a German manufacturer better known for its commercial cleaners. Perhaps not the most attractive on the market but it offers three good functional range of dry and wet and dry tank cleaners. Pictured is the entry-level NT21 described by UK distributor Charles Gordon as “a vacuum cleaner with muscles!” It is ideal for heavy-duty dry and wet vacuuming around the house, on the patio and in the garage. Tools are stored on the accompanying trolley and the cleaner can even change to a leaf blower. The two other models are NT12 (12ltr capacity) and the NT20 (15ltr).
