We had the previous Vax so thought this one being a newer model would be better....WRONG! The worst hoover I have ever had. Falls over, loses suction if filter blocked (which seems to happen alot compared to last one?) filter is a nightmare to get to and clean, untenils fall of brackets, hose connection very poor so loses suction there. Shame you cant get a refund ater use - its only once you use an item a few times you know if its good - well this hoover isnt! cant wait for this to break so can get a new 1!

Great hoover. Firstly the only negative is it is noisy, but to be honest it's worth a little bit of noise for the excellent performance of this hoover. Carpets are like new and the attachment for pet hair is brill, removes the smallest finest hairs and suite looks like new. The long cable allows you to move around the home without having to go so far and having to unplug.
The assembly was straight forward and was ready to go in no time. An absolute great buy for anyone, would highly recommend.

With the old saying ’all I want for Xmas’ I am glad I picked this model before Xmas just to clear any unwanted mess up. I have had Vax products before but this was a long time ago and to be honest it is now probably obsolete , hence a new model .
This product did not disappoint. Easy to assemble, easy to use and easy to store. It is lightweight, manoeuvres easily and with the 10mtr cable ( life saver ) and just over a 3mtr hose it covers the entire downstairs easily.
The motor is very powerful ( the only downside is the noise) but the suction from the vacuum is fantastic. It sounds like a jet engine taking off. I can live with that for the job it does.
Cleaning the stairs was so easy and it must be the first time in almost a year I have been left with ‘no pet hair’ on the carpet. This model is also ideal for hard floors and long pile carpets . It has an easily adjustable switch which controls the height of the brushes.
The cylinder is very accessible and cleaning was very easy and could be carried out one handed.
The instructions were clear and concise and the colour schemes on offer were great.
Would I recommend it to a friend – Yes I would and that not something I do every day. One of the benefiting factors in choosing this product was the fact it comes with a two year guarantee. If this model lives up to my old one I do not think I will need it.

Surprising Vax

Relatively easy to build,only thing that tripped me up was were to put the brush-bar holder. powerful suction even on the turbo brush used on stairs with stubborn pet hair.
See through brush box a brilliant in-ovation means you can SEE why the cleaner isn't working INSTEAD of having to turn it over to find it's not snagged and that the bag is full.
Of course with this cleaner you can see if the "bag" is full at a glance too because of the clear cylinder.
Nice unassuming colour scheme means your vax isn't shouting look at me just to get attention.It does the job and then snuggles back into the corner until the parrots need doing again!
Only down side is when using the tools you can pull the machine over easily but this may reduce as the hose becomes less rigid.
Appears to be good build quality and proves it by coming with a TWO year guarantee.Overall definitely worth the money
