Product Description

Product Description

Vax Air Reach

The Vax Air Reach is designed to be an incredibly light vacuum but with extra reach. If you hate lugging a heavy vacuum cleaner around your home, you’ll love the Vax Air Reach. Designed in Britain by an iconic British company, it has all the performance and capacity of a full size upright, but weighs a third less. Its long reach hose and power cord make it easy to clean high stairs and large rooms, or even valet your car.

Full size performance, a third less weight

Building from the ground up, Vax used precision engineering to reduce the weight of every component, piece by piece. Their goal was to create a powerful, high performance machine in an elegant and lightweight frame. Air Reach has the power, performance and capacity of a full size vacuum cleaner, but without the bulkiness and weight that make others such a drag. As it’s so light, it’s easy to carry upstairs and less effort to push across your carpet, so it’s the ideal choice for older people, or for those with back problems. Air Reach’s compact, slim design and retractable handle means it takes up less space than most uprights, so it’s ideal for modern homes where storage is at a premium.

Longer hose and cord for extra reach

Air Reach has an extra long power cord and stretchy hose, giving you an astonishing total cleaning reach of 15 metres. This means you can go from room to room without unplugging and clean right to the top of your stairs, leaving Air Reach safely at the bottom.

Ideal for homes with pets

Pet hair poses no problem for Air Reach, as the TurboTool easily picks up the most stubborn of hairs from stairs, upholstery and car seats. The H12 HEPA filter helps remove pollen and other allergens, making your home a more comfortable place to be, especially if you suffer from allergies. This filter is anti-bacterial too, helping to keep pet-related odours at bay.

Constant, powerful suction

Air Reach has multiple cyclone technology to provide consistent suction for powerful, efficient cleaning. The air and dust sucked into the machine spins through a series of cyclones that separate out most of the dust before it reaches the filters, so they don’t get clogged. This ensures that you don’t lose suction as you clean and you never experience a frustrating drop off in performance.

Ergonomic cleaning

As Air Reach has a telescopic handle, it’s comfortable for everyone to use – short or tall. It can be adjusted to 8 different heights to achieve the most ergonomic position for vacuuming. An LED Performance Indicator quickly alerts you of any blockages, so you always know how well it’s performing. The transparent brushbar cover can be removed by releasing two clips, so it’s really easy to clean too. The dust container is quick to empty too, simply hold it over a bin and press the release button.

There are two cleaning modes so you can switch between vacuuming hard floors and carpets at the touch of a button. Simply switch the brushbar on for carpets and off again for hard floors. A space saving 3-in-1 crevice tool, dusting brush and upholstery tool is stored on board, so it's always on hand and never gets lost.

The Vax Air

Other models in this range include the Air and the Air Pet, which has an anti-bacterial HEPA filter and a TurboTool for removing pet hairs. Designed for bigger, busier homes, the Air Force has more power and double the dust capacity of standard Air uprights. A new range of Air cylinder vacuum cleaners have all the cleaning performance of a standard sized multi cyclonic cylinder, in a smaller and lighter package.

1 x TurboTool
1 x 3-in-1 Tool (crevice tool/dusting brush/upholstery tool)

Vax U90 Mach Air Reach

Ergonomic, Powerful, Lightweight - a few flaws though

The timing of this device's arrival could not have been more perfect. Our venerable "Henry" was well into it's twilight years with masking tape holding the cracks in the hose together and more disturbingly, sparks would occasionally fly from the side vent.

Despite Henry being quite small in footprint, it's actually a bit awkward to store, so we'd decided that an upright was probably the way forward. My mum has 2x Dyson vacuum cleaners (one for upstairs, one for downstairs....) and they are both the more traditional larger upright. She swears by them for their great suction power, but our house is smaller than hers, so finding a home for a larger upright would be a problem.

This Vax MA-R by comparison to the overall space taken by Henry and by my mum's Dysons is comparatively small. It's an improvement over the Dysons by being shorter and having a height adjustable handle, so it goes into our under-stairs cupboard with ease (which has a half-height door) so it's bob-on convenient for us.

The cable length on this model is brilliant, able to get all around our 3-bedroom detached house with ease, and it has a length of hose extension clipped onto the side that can be used for the attachments to help you go up the stairs, and again there is plenty of it so this is no trouble at all.

The profile of the main cleaning head is nice and low (unlike mum's Dysons) so it can slide under our bed easier without butting it's head. The motorised brush bar can be activated and de-activated by pressing a button on the unit, which makes a dramatic improvement to the cleaning of carpets.

A remarkable cleaner
Over the years I have owned many vacuum cleaners and in fairness all have done the job one way or the other upright and and cylinder. I have just replaced my Dyson upright with a Vax Mach Air Reach; this is without a doubt the best cleaner I have ever owned. Firstly it is very lightweight and easy to manoeuvre, The Mach Air Reach comes complete with integral hose that reached very easily to the top of the stairs it also comes with a very good motorised head I was able to clean the stairs easily and quickly you will be amazed at the suction, the motorised head was also perfect in removing cat hairs from cushions something my Dyson was not able to do, I have two Main Coons cats. The long reach wand cleaned my curtains and pelmets something I have found difficult in the past on board tools was great. I tried an experiment firstly I cleaned my carpets with my Dyson cleaner then I went over the same carpets with the new Vax, you must try this yourself the Vax was lifting a lot more from the same carpets.
When it comes to using this machine as an upright cleaner it will not disappoint either, the motorised bar is efficient and easy to turn off for use on solid floors, the head is very responsive going round furniture with ease. I must also mention the cleaning of the brush roller bar instead of having to turn the vacuum cleaner over you can get to any blockage from the top of the roller bar by just unclipping the top roller bar cover. Emptying was very easy just one button and you are done, Vax also provides you with a very long cable with will almost cover your entire house from one socket!
I have been trying very hard to say something negative about this cleaner it is very difficult as Vax obviously have listened to the customer.
This is without a doubt a fantastic cleaner with a six year guarantee you can't go wrong highly recommend

The vacuuming power of the Vax U90-MA-R Mach Air is brilliant, whether on hard floors or carpet/rugs. A simple press of a button allows one to smoothly glide between the two major surfaces with no problems, enabling ou to clean the floor easily and quickly.

The only draw-back I can see with this machine is the lack of secure places for the additions. One of them comes with no space at all and the other two - whilst they fit nicely into each other - do not fit securely on to the cleaner.

Fitting the extension to each other can be a tad convoluted to begin with, but quickly becomes second nature. The handle can be removed from the vacuum to be attached to the main suction hose, and when extended with the extension hose (funnily enough!) enables the user to clean the stairs with ease, without having to lift the machine up and down the stairs, precareously balancing it half-way up. Coupled with the very long flex and this enables one to be able to clean several rooms - in our case the living room, kitchen, hall and stairs - with no need to unplug the cleaner and move it to a more central socket.

Very lightweight and easy to pick and move, this vacuum cleaner is to be very much recommended. We moved to this machine from a Dyson 04, and I would say that this is at least the equal of that one, and in certain cases the superior cleaner.

With the added brushes/extensions and the suction power and manouverability, overall this Vax is a welciome addition to the family of cleaners they provide.

Only 1 starr off for the lack of space for the additions. Otherwise - Brilliant!
