Diversey Taski Ensign Evo Vacuum Cleaners

We can save you money on new Ensign Evo vacuum cleaners, bags and spare parts.

If you have (or are thinking of buying) an Ensign Evo vacuum cleaner, we’re going to save you some money on either a new machine or bags and spare parts.

Liked by schools, nursing homes and hotels, the Ensign Evo range are usually supplied by specialist cleaning or trade supply companies. That usually means you’re paying very strong money for them. Look at these Google ads below.

In this article, we are going to save you a LOT of money on what you see there.

First, let’s discuss the heritage of the machines themselves. In the UK you buy these machines badged as Diversey, Taski or Ensign Evo models. They sell 3 models: the 300, 350 and 450. They are not made by Diversey, Taski or Ensign though, they are actually made by Stein & Co in Germany. The same company that makes Sebo vacuum cleaners. So what we have here is simple badge engineering.

Badge engineering is the practice of using the same engineering design to produce different models of something under another brand name. Badge engineering is often used by car manufacturers to produce variants of a car for different markets. In most cases, badge engineering is simply a matter of changing badges and other external features. Badge engineering allows manufacturers to produce multiple models from a single design, saving time and money in the process.

This is how a Vauxhall car in the UK is an Opel in Germany. Vauxhall may make a few adjustments here and there, but the overall design, for the most part, is identical. If you’re old enough, think of a Morris Oxford and an Austin Cambridge. Same car. It happens with vacuum cleaners too.

So here’s the thing. A Diversey Taski Ensign Evo is fundamentally the same vacuum as the Sebo Evolution.

The colours of the trims differ slightly, and they take different bags (we’ll do spares and bags later). Other than that, they’re identical. Same motors, same hoses, same body panels, same power cord, same everything!

However, you can buy Sebo Evolution vacuums typically much cheaper than you can Diversey Taski Ensign Evo models. So let’s save you some money and show you which models.

Equivalent Sebo Models to Diversey Ensign Evo Models

There are three Ensign Evo models.

This is the Ensign Evo 300. It’s 30 cm wide which is the size of a standard domestic hoover. Premier Inns use these for example.

The Sebo equivalent is the Evolution 300, and we sell that here: Sebo Evolution 300

But our Sebo costs much less than you’ll pay for an Ensign 300 Evo.

This is the Ensign Evo 350. Probably the most popular variant. It’s 35 cm wide and has a small protrusion on one side which allows you to get under radiators and furniture easier.

The Sebo equivalent is the Evolution 350, and we sell that here for much less than you’ll pay for an Ensign 350 Evo: Sebo Evolution 350. You’ll find the Evolution 350 at Blackpool Pleasure Beach’s hotel the Big Blue for example.

However, if you’re looking at that width of vacuum, consider also the Sebo BS360. It’s the world’s best-selling commercial vacuum. In our view, they’re better engineered and more durable than the Evolution/Evo and they’re twin motor machines whereas the Evolution and Evo are single motor machines.

This is the Ensign Evo 450. It’s 45 cm wide and has a large protrusion on one side which allows you to get further under radiators and furniture, and vacuum big floors faster.

The Sebo equivalent of this is the Evolution 450. We don’t stock this model (although we can order it in far cheaper than you’ll pay for an Ensign Evo 450) because the Sebo BS460 knocks spots off it in terms of engineering and durability. The BS460 is simply a far, far better machine, so we sell those instead.

About Diversey Taski Ensign Evo Bags

The Diversey Taski Evo models take >>these bags<<

The Sebo Evolution models take >>these bags<<

That is about the only engineering difference you’ll find between the two variants. As far as we can see, there’s no technical reason for that. The bags are made by the same company and there’s no advantage to one type over the other.

About Diversey Taski Ensign Evo Spare Parts

The consumable spare parts you’ll most likely buy are replacement power cords.

And perhaps the integral hose.

As mentioned earlier, the Ensign Evo models share these parts with the Sebo Evolution machines.

We also sell a huge range of extra hoses and tools which are suitable for your Ensign Evo hoover.

Why We Are Much Cheaper

You’ll have seen by now we are much cheaper than whoever you are using now for Ensign Evo vacuums and spares. And here’s why:

We don’t operate using purchase orders, invoicing later, terms, etc. There is no need to open any kind of account, so we don’t need trade references or anything similar. We don’t offer any credit or pay later options whatsoever. Nor do we accept cheques as a form of payment. What we do accept is:

  • Cash
  • Credit/debit card payments in person
  • Credit/debit card payments online
  • Bank transfer in advance for larger orders

You’ll find our prices extremely competitive, and here’s why: you would normally buy online from us and pay when you order or pay on collection. There are no accounts to open, no 30 or 60 days credit or invoicing later. You pay for it, we send it, job done. Or you call and collect it and pay for it then.

All transactions with businesses are on B2B terms, this means no change of mind returns.  That’s why you pay more on Amazon or from the large cleaning supply companies than you will with us. That’s how we keep the price down.

If you’re buying for a larger company or other organisation that usually gets invoiced later for this type of equipment, speak to your accounts people. They’ll usually find a way to pay online when they’re saving money. We supply many large PLCs, local authorities, ITV, and some branches of the NHS and government, and they all find a way to pay when or before they order. Our Sebos sit in companies such as Guinness, Toyota and even the British Security Services. If their accounts department found a way to pay online, so can yours.

If you need several machines at once or have an otherwise decent size order, we can send you a proforma, you’ll pay to the bank in advance and we ship when you’ve paid. Email us >>here<< if you need that. But that isn’t something we want to do for a few packets of bags or small orders as it’s too labour intensive for the modest profit there is on small orders.
