Floors and All Pet (U86-PF-Pe)
The Vax U86-PF-Pe Performance Floors and All Pet, an upright vacuum cleaner that is versatile and has an innovative design. It features a detachable canister that can be removed from the upright with a touch of the single button, making it easier than ever to clean below and above the floor with the minimum of fuss.
The Vax Performance Floors and All Pet also features dual cyclonic technology, which provides powerful suction across both carpets and hard floors and allows for total home cleaning. This also enables you to complete a more efficient and longer-lasting clean, as you look to remove embedded dirt and maintain a pristine home. A rotating brushbar also agitates deep down dirt and stains, so that you can clean beneath the surface and leave your floors looking fresh.
There are also a host of tools and accessories that enable above the floor cleaning. Among these is a purposeful TurboTool, which is great for removing stubborn and embedded pet hair from your carpets, fabric and upholstery. You can also use a 2-in-1 crevice and dusting tool for cleaning awkward areas above the floor, including skirting boards, blinds, upholstery and stairs. The product is also sold in conjunction with a Microfibre Grab Pad, which have been designed to pick up and lock in dust across your hard floors.
The Vax Performance Floors and All Pet is also versatile and equipped with a long reach hose and extra-long power cord, which make it easy to clean up and down stairs or from room to room. It weighs a total of 8 kg and includes a longer power cord that enables you to clean with less frequent unplugging. Another design feature of the Vax Performance Floors and All Pet is its inbuilt HEPA media filter, which has the capacity to trap dirt, dirt and pollen across various surfaces.
Powered by dual cyclonic technology for powerful and consistent suction across multiple surfaces, it is ideal for busy home and pet-owners that are keen to maintain a clean living space. The detachable canister also provides you with an opportunity to effortlessly clean all around the home, without compromising on efficiency and quality. Also equipped with a host of tools that enable above floor and upholstery cleaning, the Floors and All Pet offers a comprehensive cleaning solution for busy home-owners.
The Vax U86-PF-Pe Performance Floors and All Pet has been engineered in line with the EU’s Eco-design and Energy Labelling regulations for vacuum cleaners, introduced from September 2014. Information about its energy efficiency can be found within the energy label.
What’s the energy label for?
From September 2014 all vacuum cleaners must comply with EU Eco-design and Energy Labelling regulations that dictate how they are designed and labelled. The most visible part of the legislation is the energy label, which will be displayed with every vacuum cleaner. The purpose of the label is to help you judge how energy efficient the vacuum cleaner is and assess its potential energy costs when compared to other models on the market. It displays information about the vacuum cleaner’s energy efficiency, noise levels, pick-up performance and filtration.

It comes with some of the usual Vax features. It has the legendary Vax suction, which really is very powerful indeed. All Vax hoovers seem to be able to pick up extra dust that my Dyson leaves behind, and this is no excption. It has a nice long cord that stores on the back. There is the usual crevice/edge device that clips onto the hose, and can be stored on the back of the device. It also comes with the very useful turbo brush; a mini spinning brush bar that attaches to the hose, and is really useful for curtains, sofas or the car.
The hose/handle has been redesigned, and makes using the hose a much easier process.
There are 2 new design features which I havent come across before, and both are great. The first is a hardfloor attachment; it looks a little like a mop caretakers used to use when I was at school, but it attaches to the hose. It's very good indeed for using on hard floors. We have a tiled kitchen and wooden floors downstairs, and this hoovers it really well. It attracts extra dust that would normally get left behind and protects the floor from scratches
The second feature, which I love even more, is that the main canister (incl motor/collection bin) detaches from the upright, so you can carry it around on stairs or hard to reach areas. Brilliant!
i would highly recommend this Vax, even over some of the more expensive/higher-end models.
This U86 combines the light weight and portability of a compact with the sheer dust busting power of a top quality upright. Some great design features further enhance its functionality. For general carpet cleaning, you can use it in default upright mode. Then whip out the extension tube and hose to access dusty areas where other vacuums would not reach. Finally, the piece de resistance is being able to disconnect the cylinder from the base unit, which is great for long staircases or even for reaching up to clean cobwebby ceilings.
This model is particularly effective on picking up pet hairs and, after the first pass across our living room carpet, we were genuinely surprised at how much fluff and of our domestic long-haired puss' shed coat ended up in the dirt container.
A crevice tool, hard floor head and turbo tool are included. I particularly like the latter, which is ideal for stairs and reaching under furniture.
The manual is well written and clearly illustrated and a two-year warranty completes this quality product.
Only very minor irritation is that you need to clean the filters every 3 months (which is more frequently than a Dyson). This means rinsing the pre-motor filter and allowing it to dry naturally for 24 hours. So, slightly irksome, but a small price to pay for such an efficient and beautifully designed vacuum cleaner.
I have no hesitation in recommending this Vax very highly indeed.
This VAX was used in a bungalow with laminate floors, apart from the kitchen and bathroom which have vinyl floor covering.
In addition we have some rugs and carpet-type runners in the lounge and hallways plus the usual door mats - and a ginger cat.
The actual quality of manufacture is very good, some of the catches and hose connectors are a little stiff and are expected to free off with some use, this vacuum has a longer than usual power cord which is a good thing, on the other hand the cord has to be manually wound but can be quickly released by rotating one of the storage hooks.
Unfortunately the cord needs to be wound neatly AFTER using the cleaner in portable mode e.g. stairs, otherwise it interferes with refitting the detachable unit back on the main body. This means there could some difficulty dealing with tools, cable, and cleaner unit.
The other thing that comes to light in carrying the unit in portable mode is that the motor switch is in the wrong place - it makes the unit ideal for left hand use (you can reach the switch with your right forefinger) and use the cleaning tools with your left hand.
If you wish to use the tools with your right hand and hold the vacuum unit in your left, a thumb cannot reach the switch, you have to put something down to switch the unit off.
- The motor is of the new generation of lower power EU 2015 spec units, but you would never know that from the suction power. Operation and is reasonably quiet and very smooth, the suction created is really strong.
- The dust disposal bin system is also excellent and works well.Read more ›
One of the big advantages of this cleaner is that the cylinder comes away from the base, so you can just detach it and carry it with you while hoovering stairs or awkward areas - this allowed me to easily clean the floors behind the sofa, a job which used to be a constant hassle with a regular upright, but was quick and simple with this. The crevice tool and hard floor attachment are great too, and give you pretty much all you'd need to clean all types of floors. The power cord is long enough to travel a good distance too, so you won't be constantly plugging and unplugging.Read more ›
