4.0 out of 5 stars Reasonable but not amazing portable vacuum 7 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase
Executive summary: reasonable suction, great portability, too-thin hose that can stop suction when bent, easy emptying, irritating accessory management, good for pets? - probably not, worth the money (92 in this case)? - not altogether sure, maybe.

I've just received a new Vax Air Mini Pet (C88-AM-P) and have given it a test drive. It replaces a larger Vax (of a similar type) that we had for 5 years and left in our old flat when we moved.

As many reviews of this model and its sister models relate, the build quality seems to have gone down over the years. While my previous model was a war of attrition with the accessories and the filters over time, the main unit remained solid. This one feels less solid - the hose fitting into the main unit doesn't feel nearly as solid, the hose (mentioned in a lot of different reviews - again mainly on sister models) is considerably more flimsy and does bend - cutting off suction, if you don't keep an eye on it. And the attachment that keeps some of your accessories along for the ride - yes, the attachments fall off (turn it so they sit on it rather than hold tight to it and you may have some more luck) and the attachment itself falls off too. Not a major, but in my previous model, the attachment was built into the handle (so couldn't fall off) and generally the "crevice device" didn't fall out of it. In the end, I just left the attachments nearby.

It IS a smaller unit and lighter than my previous Vax - but not dramatically so - but it makes for easy movement. Vacuuming difficult staircases and cobwebs is perfectly OK (I'm normally fit and healthy so that does have a bearing on that).

Like my previous one, emptying it when I've finished is totally easy.

I have tried numerous different small cleaners and read the reviews and the promises of how well they perform etc etc, well let me tell you this is the only true champion the suction is fantastic it will actually lift the carpets / mats out of the car. If like me you only want to do the job once and not spend hours going over and over to try and get it clean, then look no further.

4.0 out of 5 stars Second Vacuum 6 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase
This is very useful as our 'upstairs' cleaner as our Dyson is very heavy to drag up the stairs. It is quite effective at removing dog hairs from the carpets.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very noisy and now has stopped working 21 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase
Day 35 and it's so noisy... Day 36 stopped working, it was noisy ever since we had the thing, worked well so put up with it. Can't be bothered with all the repairs with Vax so in the bin it goes!

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic 12 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase
Had problem to start with has the hose creased at the connection point giving me little air flow, e mailed Vax of which they have never got back to me,, in the meantime tried to unconnect the hose and could not as it was too hard. My friend tried and had difficulty but eventually did it,we then put it back on but the other way and it worked. The hoover now is fantastic and the pet head a marvel but still not sure of the hose as it still sometimes kinks and I wonder what it will be like after some use.
It is only the hose that let,s this hoover down

2.0 out of 5 stars Not great! 30 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase
I should have listened to the reviews as the hose is way too bendy and I regularly need to stop to unlink it. Another drawback is how easily the top comes off. When I take the cylinder off the main body to empty it I often find that I'm left holding just the lid. Altogether feels a flimsy and I would not recommend or buy again.

2.0 out of 5 stars not great but ok 28 Mar 2014
By Fred
Verified Purchase
The good thing about it is its cheap!!!! The not so good things are:
Its a pain to empty the top filter cover (where the handle is) comes apart if you try to shake the dust out even just a gentle shake so you therefore have to get your hand in to pull out the fluffy bits that get stuck around the inside very messy also the bottom flap gets in the way when trying to empty it too a real pain!!
The pipe is very plastic and kinks easily.
The velvet strips on the upholstery adapter came off on the second use.
Its not actually that small!!
The filter needs a good bash to get the dust out after every use or the suction is rubbish, it does state this in the manual but I've had other vacuum cleaners like this and they didn't need the filter cleaning after every use like this one does!! And I've only got it for a 35ft static caravan its not like I'm hoovering a big house.
I would not buy again and do not recommend this hoover

1.0 out of 5 stars the worst hoover i have ever had!! 18 Mar 2014
This is the 3rd one i have had and i am now sending it back and getting a different one. The suction itself is good and i cant fault that but the hose has folded over on itself and is blocking the suction all the time. The last one i had the head fell off and i couldnt put it back on and the one before that the extendable clip on the hose stopped working. I am now fed up with this hoover and looking for a different make. I would not recomened anyone buy this item.
