Does an OK job for $99


It's not the best stick vacuum on the market, it's cheap but not nasty. Does an OK job on carpet and tiles but no good with hair as the motorised head will clog up and stop working as the hair chokes the head from spinning. It can be fixed by simply disassembling the head and removing the hair. You don't have to unscrew anything, there is a small latch and with one turn it releases. Ensure you pop off the small plastic cog so you can removing the hair from the spinning shaft. I'd love a Dyson but for now this does the job and saves me from having to bring out the big vacuum during the week.

No Suction. Not Worth the money


Worst vacuum cleaner I have ever used. No Suction at all and makes a loud rattling noise near the brush. Took it back to the Godfreys store where I purchased it from and was told i must have had something caught it in and to put some wd40 on it. Would never buy anying from Godfreys again.

Value for Money


Wanted to purchase a hand stick, found this one on offer at Godfreys.
It is easy to use. Battery and suction power is not great but its fine for the price paid.
I have floorboards and it works fine, have not tried on carpet.
It is perfect value for money, purchased it online as it was out of stock in the shop.

Handy Dandy Stick Vac


I recently purchased the Ivac X10 stick vacuum to make the chore of vacuuming easier.
Suction is decent for a cordless vacuum knowing that I would still have to hold onto my corded vacuum to do the heavy lifting. with a toddler in the home it’s not simple to pull out my heavy vac and do the job. The Ivac runs for twenty minutes which is enough for what I use it for and it includes attachments so I can vacuum the couch and up high on the ceilings. If you are looking for a simple, quick clean this is good value for money. Couldn’t afford a Dyson so this vac for $149 was a good choice

Questions & Answers



how to remove brush on ivax x10

1 answer

Under the head, locate the screw slot. Use screwdriver to turn to the “unlock” position and the flap will come down and let you ease the brush out for cleaning.
Also the inside of the head can be cleaned at the same time. Good luck!
