This review is from: Vax U89-MAF2-T Air Force 2 Total Home Multicyclonic Bagless Upright Vacuum Cleaner (Kitchen & Home)
Well my poor old Vax Swift bagless was getting very tired, but I had been so impressed with its performance that I thought I would get another Vax. I picked this "most powerful" model due to it's supposed performance with pet hair etc, which my old Vax was so good at coping with.

So I starte to unpack the machine and found that the "multi purpose" crevis tool was so badly distorted as to be useless, but I decided to carry on and get a replacement sent later.

First job that needed doing was the stairs, so I fitted the handle to the long tube and fitted the "Turbo" brush, unfortunately the clip holding the flexi hose in place is useless, so by the time I was halfway up the stairs it had become disconnected and was back at the bottom. Anyway I held the tube in place and started vaccuming the stairs, but after just two steps a small amount of dog hair had completely jammed the turbo part of the brush, remember this part of the machine is specifically designed to cope with pet hair! I finished the stairs using the old non turbo brush off the old Vax and emptied the machine, not full but I wanted to see how much it had collected.

Next job, the hallway. Setting the machine back as an upright, I was very impressed with the way it cleaned the carpet, but not for long, within a few seconds the air was full of dust. I checked that I had put the collector back on properly, which I had, so took the collector outside to check it. The collector only had a small amount of dust in it, but the cyclone was clogged solid by a relatively small amount of pet hair. I cleaned the cyclone out and tried again, but the same thing happened, so I cleaned it for the third time.

I had nearly finished doing the hall now ( but would have done the lounge and dining room too with the old Vax) So I switched it on to finish the job, by now not at all impressed by this machine. At this pint there was an gentle "pop" from the motor and a smell of electrical burning.

It is now waiting in the box to be collected.

Do not ever be tempted to buy one of these, please.
