I know I'm not the first to get one of these and I think my first impressions may not add an awful lot to the sum of human knowledge, but here goes anyway.
- The bogie pickups made intermittent contact, I had to stretch the springs a little and in the end I suspect good old fashioned wire would be more effective.
- The hoover mode is surprisingly effective but the motor unit is not a close fit in the body so dust ends up in the electronics; if you don't want that then add some kind of airtight seal.
- Why is it purple? Mine will of course be sprayed yellow at the earliest opportunity...
I like this tool, it is unquestionably what I need with well over 100m of track to keep clean. With only a few minor tweaks I expect it to do the job very well. Guy
