The industry standard everyone compares it to is a Dyson. Is it a Dyson? It certainly is not. But it is replacing a Dyson. The suction is good, but having covered the same areas of my house, the volume of dust in the cylinder is much less.
However, it is around £200 cheaper than a Dyson, and if I had not had one, I would be satisfied with the perfomance of the Vax.
It's also much lighter and easier to use. The tools that come with it I think are more versatile and easier to put on and take of than my previous machine.
The downside. Although it's a compact machine, with the pipe and tools, it's less easy to store. Just a minor point.
Overall, very satisfied with the machine and consider it excellent value for money.Vax C89-P6-B Power 6 Bagless Cylinder Vacuum Cleaner
