Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

The Vax 6131 Multifunction canister vacuum is the ideal total home cleaning system. Your carpets may look clean on the surface, but the 6131 cleans right down to make your carpets look and feel revitalised in three ways:

A great everyday vacuum cleaner
A powerful, easy to manoeuvre large capacity cleaner, the combination floor head enables effective vacuuming on both carpets and hard floors, with the accessories offering a range of cleaning from upholstery to stairs and crevices.

Washes and dries carpets
The 6131's patented Fibreflow technology reaches deep down into the carpet pile where vacuuming can not always reach, flushing out dirt and dust, leaving your carpets looking fresh and revitalised. Washing with Vax AAA Carpet Cleaning Solution, which is specifically formulated for Vax to gently lift deep down dirt and stains, will leave a fresh fragrance, without any sticky residue.

Sucks up spills
Washing machine flooded the floor? Spilt milk? Not a problem for the Vax 6131.

Why wash my carpets?
Although regular vacuuming of your carpets removes everyday dirt, it does not completely remove the deep-down dirt and grease that makes carpets look flat and lifeless. Washing your carpets will.

The benefits of regular carpet washing:

  • Prolongs carpet life
  • Brightens colour and pattern
  • Refreshes carpet fibres by extracting odours and stains
  • Removes pollen and dust - the main triggers of asthma and hayfever.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Still the best for your money 21 Sep 2006
    By Peter
    The Vax is somthing I grew up with as the house's main hoover. When they first came out they were the best money could buy, and lasted longer than most people could belive, our own lasted just over ten years, which for any vaccum is a hell of an achivement. The newer 3 in 1 which we now have (this one infact) is basicly the same design, modernised and still a scary shade of orange.

    The vaccum feature is the same as most, only with a bit more power, and an inconveniant way of storing the tools (they slot onto the side of the barrel and get knocked off easily when you move it about) but if you want a good job done, this is among the best to do it with.

    When it comes to cleaning, the first time can be tricky since the instructions are more a picture book than anything else, but once you figure it out, converting it from vaccum to cleaner shouldnt take more than five minutes. The cleaning head is not the old style little box this time round, its a full hoover head, only transparent with a tube section. the cleaning ability is the same as it always was, a great job so long as you dont use the Vax AAA solution, its a bit too mild for most jobs, and youll end up needing to do a second round. Astonish do a decent one for less than a quid so get that if you can.

    The claim that it will extend the life of your carpets really is true, every time you clean, youll be amazed how much dirt came out, and mow much cleaner it looks, obviously your carpets will still die off after time, no machine can undo constant abuse by size 11 feet.

    For a multi roll cleaner this is the one for the job, plus what you would spend on hiring a seperate cleaner would pay for one of these after the third job. only drawback being its fairly big, and needs a bit of space to store teh cleaner section when your not using it (its about the size of a pizza tray and 9 inches thick)

    5.0 out of 5 stars Best value on market 9 Sep 2008
    Verified Purchase
    Best washer / vacuum on the market.
    This will suck nearly as well as all of our Dyson's we've owned. It washes nearly as well as the expensive pro cleaners and it is tough. All of the filters are washable. The card filter will wash in warm water with a dash of soap powder.
    Much better over all than everything else on the market. My only criticism is the 2 catches that attach the top to the base are badly designed and many people will snap them. I think other than that it's the best vacuum around. Don't wash your carpets with company or you might be embarrassed by how dirty the waste water is, no matter how clean you think your carpet is.
    I bought an upholstery head separately for sofa etc and got very good results. The only real problem is that all your friends will want to borrow it when they see how good it is.

    Bought this in 2008 and now 2012 is ending and it's as good as new. I've had to replace the head as I crushed the old one in a door, the replacement was about 7.
    Have since had the upstairs carpeted with new carpet about an inch deep and this is a godsend.
    Several friends have borrowed it and all love it.
    Still very happy with it. The catches I thought were a weakness are still fine so maybe I was wrong.

    5.0 out of 5 stars fab 13 Sep 2009
    I recently moved to a new house. Carpets looked iffy and then between my dog and 7 year old son they looked like they needed replacing. Instead I bought the vax, and one for my neighbour (in a similar situation) and the results are amazing. The carpets have changed colour! All the fur came out (without the need for the turbo tool). Doing the stairs came close to pleasure! No more backache thanks to all the changeable attachments, light and easy to use, on a good set of wheels so it doesn't fall over on your foot!, a breeze to assemble. And my neighbour says it's the best vacuum she's ever had.
    What else can I say? Keep the box to store it in, as you don't use all the bits at once. And it even comes with 2 spare dustbags and vax AAA carpet shampoo. I bought some Astonish shampoo aswell (because it was cheaper), but it may have been a false economy, as you only need to use 4 capfuls of AAA per 4 litres of water, compared to 500ml of Astonish!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant machine 21 Dec 2008

    With my dog who sheds hair like no other dog I have ever known and four muddy feet, not to mention my own, it was quite a challenge keeping the place spick and span. So when my old vacuum gave up the ghost and went to the great vacuum bag in the sky I decided to shop around for a dule purpose machine, one which could wash as well as vacuum. Usually this would mean something that was ok doing its jobs but not the best. However I have been extreemly happy with my new Vax 6131 and I find it is an extreemly good all rounder. It is easy to use and to change from wet to dry and visa versa, add to this the very good choice of tools and you have an excelent machine for a good price. Just one thing though, don't be rough with the catches, though I have had no problems.

    This is a good all rounder and excellent value for the price. Build quality appears robust, which is more than can be said for some of its competitors at twice the price

    3.0 out of 5 stars Jack of all trades , master of none 15 Oct 2005
    Verified Purchase
    When I purchased this unit it was solely for the purpose of cleaning carpets and its ability to be used as a vaccuum cleaner was of secondary importance to me.
    My first impression was that it was fiddly to set up for carpet cleaning. The manual/documentation are relatively poor, but I did manage to figure it out. The manual is mainly pictures and very few words.
    Performance as a carpet cleaner seems to be pretty good - although I've never used any other machine, so I've no reference point to compare it to. Certainly took a lot of dirt out of our carpets and left them looking much newer. Also worth pointing out that although it put out a lot more liquid than it pulled back, that the carpets did indeed dry within a few hours as it claims.
    I've used it as a vaccuum cleaner when cleaning the car out - did the job fine. Reasonable selection of tools
    Because this unit is designed to serve multiple functions, you're left having to mess on with various bits and pieces (like filter cone vs clean water bucket and running the water feed pipe down the vac tube) to switch between cleaner/vaccuum. It can be tiresome to keep chopping and changing it around.
    At the end of the day, it does what it does reasonably well. I would describe it as jack of all trades, master of none.
