Henry Family

Most people do not know what the differences are between all the different types of Henry available. Here we aim to clarify what these differences are so that you can choose the right Henry Hoover model for you.

FAQ

Q. What is the difference between the red, blue, yellow & green henrys. 
A. Nothing apart from the colour.

Q. What is the difference between Henry & Hetty?
A. Nothing apart from the colour & a set of eyelsashes!

Q. What is difference between the NRV200-22 & Henry?
A. They have the same motor ( so therefore same suction). They have the same kit. The cable is 12.5m on the NRV  instead of 10m on the Henry. The base on the NRV flares out making it more stable & less likely to tip over. Henry has autosave - so the motor automatically starts in low power mode. The NRV does not have autosave but can be manually switched to low power mode.

To keep things simple we will cover the dry vacuums first.  If you have a Charles or a George see the bottom of this page for a full description of what they can do. 



Henry/Numatic Motors

Numatic make 2 different dry motors a high powered one rated 600w/1200w & a lower powered one rated 500w/800w.
If you want a cheaper vacuum that uses less electricity then go for one of the machines that have the smaller motor. BUT remember this also means less performance. One of the ways that the power of a vacuum is rated is by number of the litres of air that the vacuum pull up in 1 second, called airflow. The airflow created by the smaller motor is 30 litres per second. Imagine 30 squash bottles whizzing through the air to imagine what this looks like. The larger motor has an airflow of 42 litres per second.

The high powered motor rated 600/1200w & is used in all of these machines:

Henry in HVR200A supplied in red, yellow, blue or green.
Henry Xtra HVX200A
Henry Turbo HVR 200T-2
Henry Hound HHR 200-2

James JVP 180A  

Autosave Models

Numatic International have developed a new feature used in many of the "Henry" models. When an autosave model is switched on the motor automatically starts in lower power mode (in a Henry this means 600w in a James this means 500w as it uses the smaller motor). This mode is perfectly adequate for 90% of cleaning, but when you need that extra bit of suction you simply press the "HI" switch & the power doubles to high power mode (1200w in Henry 800w in James).

The models that come with autosave mode have a letter A at the end of their model no. and include:

Henry in HVR200A supplied in red, yellow, blue or green.
Henry Xtra HVX200A 
Harry HHR 200A 
Hetty HET 200A
Harry HHR 200A 
PVT 220A
PSP 180A
PSP 200A  
NSP 180A
NSP 200A
James JVP 180A 

The models that do not have an "A" on the end do not have autosave but might have a switch which allows the user to reduce the power manually.

Cable Re-Wind

Some of the models from Numatic have a knob on the top of the vacuum that allow the user to wind the cable up into the head of the vacuum cleaner. The advantage of this is that the cable can be stowed away neatly. The disadvantage is that if the cable needs replacing you will currently need an engineer to replace it. Later in the year this will change as Numatic are developing a a rewind head that has an access plate to where the cable joins (this is not available yet though). All of the models that don't have a rewind head can have their electrical leads changed easily as they use a plug similar to a kettle plug & head in with 2 screws.

Models that have a cable re-wind facility are:

Henry in HVR200A supplied in red, yellow, blue or green.
Henry Xtra HVX200A
Henry Turbo HVR 200T-2
Henry Hound HHR 200-2
Henry Micro HVR 200M-22
Hetty HET 200A
Harry HHR 200A
NRV 200-22 
PVT 220A


Models that have a plug in cable that does not wind up into the head of the vacuum are:
