German Test Scandal Vacuum Cleaners

Vacuum Cleaners:
In the wake of the Volkswagen scandal, German firms were keen to show they had cleaned up their act.
But British inventor James Dyson yesterday claimed to have found more dirt under the carpet.
His company has accused German rivals Siemens and Bosch of using trickery to make two of their appliances appear greener in lab tests than they really are.

In European Energy consumption tests, vacuum cleaners are not required to suck up any dust !!
Dyson claims the cleaners only appear green because they have a sensor that detects when dust is being collected and increases power.
Remind anyone of VW  Diesels Emissions Tests ?
Again, Lab tests v Real World tests

Kirby just another scaremongering thing, after all, Dyson invented nothing, he just stole the cyclone form an industrial vacuum and charges £300+ for something outcleaned (and outlasted) by a Hoover Junior... Grin
