Clean lines from Hitachi


Whether you prefer bagless convenience, a traditional canister vacuum cleaner with a cloth bag or even an upright, Hitachi?s 2007 range has something for everyone.

Hitachi?s premium machine is the 2,000 watt titanium gold CVSH20V ($339 RRP) bagless barrel vacuum cleaner. Weighing 4.9 kg, this cleaner has Hitachi?s dust compression technology (DCT) that reduces dust volume by 50%, said to create less mess and fewer trips to the rubbish bin. Hitachi says its bagless technology, called its ?cyclonic cleaner system? sends dust straight into the cyclonic chamber whilst the machine?s centrifugal airflow creates a tornado effect. The CVSH20V features seven stage filtration, capturing fine dirt and dust particles while antibacterial and deodorising agents work to purify the machine?s exhaust air.

Nano technology, first

Hitachi says it was the first company to install Nano titanium filtration technology (which  traps tiny bacteria and odour causing particles) in its home appliances. While the entire Hitachi vacuum cleaner range includes a Nano titanium filter, the CVSH20V cyclone barrel and the CV90CY upright vacuum cleaners incorporate a HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) clean filter, removing at least 99.97% of dust, pollen, mould, bacteria and any airborne with a size of 0.3 micrometers at 85 litres per minute. This is said to minimise allergy symptoms.

The CVSH20V has onboard tool storage with a detachable crevice nozzle and dusting brush. The telescopic extension pipe and the large wheels were designed to make vacuuming easier, allowing quick adjustment and smooth manoeuvrability. The machine?s blower function also allows you attach the pipe to the machine?s rear to oust dust from tight spots.
