4.0 out of 5 stars Really Powerful Heavyweight, 21 Sept. 2011
This review is from: Vax U89-MAF2-T Air Force 2 Total Home Multicyclonic Bagless Upright Vacuum Cleaner (Kitchen & Home)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I recently reviewed a cylinder cleaner made by Vax and was really impressed with it, prior to that I had only used upright cleaners, so it was interesting to be able to review this model, and to compare it to the cylinder version and our old upright cleaner (another manufacturer's model, the one with the ball).

Both Vax models are well engineered and are guaranteed for six years which shows the level of product confidence and really takes some beating, I also like the Vax "we love to help" attitude to customer care, they display their contact telephone numbers and encourage you to contact them if you unfortunately do have a problem rather than returning the cleaner to the supplier.

This model has a generous length of lead and a good selection of tools, we have quite a long staircase and using the extension tube this one reaches to the very top of the stairs, in the past when I used the ball machine I always had to tackle the top section with the cleaner upstairs and then had to keep a wary eye out for it coming down to meet me halfway.

The cleaner certainly does its job looking at the collection bin, I found it cleaned better than the cylinder version on carpets and also picked up a lot more compared to the ball, in fact you can actually see the difference looking at the carpet, I do think this is a great cleaner but I must confess to preferring the Vax cylinder version for the hard floor areas, this is simply because it's lighter to operate, and being lazy I quite like the cylinder's auto winding power lead.

The only real downside I found with the cleaner is that some people may find it a little heavy to operate, its marketed as the world's most powerful multicyclonic upright cleaner and it is definitely a five star beast of a cleaner but unfortunately as it is heavy it will not suit everybody hence the four star rating.
