I already own an earlier model called the Air Pet which I don’t particularly like so it was interesting comparing this to that.
Putting it together was simple enough although I did have to figure out where to put the tools on the back.
This vac is quite small; the same size as the DC25 and very light. Light enough that you can carry it around with one hand.
The power rating isn’t mentioned in the spec but is largely irrelevant as I think the suction on this thing is hectic.
The upholstery tool rather small but seems to work ok
Crevice tool has a switchblade brush which makes it quite wide so would be unsuitable for getting in between things.. like crevices!
You also get an extension pipe for extra reach.. more on that later.
The Air Pet came with a turbo-tool attachment for removing pet hair from upholstery; this one doesn’t.
This does not have the trick ‘ball’ hinge that the other models have which means it’s not as nice manoeuvring around.
Unlike previous models, there is a switch that actually reduces the suction on carpets. This avoids the heavy drag you used to get on the older model.
There is also a switch to stop the brush from rotating for hard floors.
The vacuum suction is very good indeed. I feel that it is better than my old Dyson.
In order to use the tools you have to physically disconnect the hose from the base of the vac, attach it to the telescopic tube (which also acts as the handle).Read more ›
There is little assembly required and first impressions are just how lightweight the Vax is. Much easier to carry if you have to.
A cleverly designed '3in 1' cleaning tool ( see photo) clips easily to the main body that also acts as home for the extension hose. All thoughtfully designed and easy to use.
Separate control for the brush bar allows deactivation for hard floors and tools and permanent washable filters are easily accessed. The handle can be adjusted for height and can also with minimal effort be lowered for storage,
The Vax is easy to a manoeuvre and, as the attached photos show, the design of the leaning head allows it to reach underneath furniture, a task that defeated our Dyson with its taller brush bar. The Vax's canister is smaller than the Dysons and will need emptying more often but that is a small issue.
An exceptionally long cord (13m!) allows the Vax to carry on working without frequent unplugging/ replugging to power sockets and the 'Stretch' description is we'll justified as the extension hose (which easily clips to the built in hose) allowed our stairs to be cleaned without moving the vacuum, a first for us and very welcome.Read more ›
1. I find it obnoxiously loud ' what a racquet.
2. It's bad on lino flooring ' the suction is actually TOO powerful, such it "sticks" to the floor. Maybe if I had carpets I would love it? (All the suction is concentrated into a tiny little rectangular strip such that it forms a tight seal around the edges.. ) (You can’t markedly reduce the suction strength.)
Because of the above two factors, I'm just going to jump in and nitpick about some other things:
- It's clunky
- It clatters
- It's heavy.
Miele is just head and shoulders above the competition (including Vax).
For this sort of money (it's selling for around £226 on this page as I write this), I don't know why you wouldn't just get a Miele instead.
I wanted to like this - sorry- the Germans do it better.
One positive thing I can say about it is that the design is visually interesting. But the components kind of look intricate and breakable? Oh, ABOUT THAT: Which? magazine gave this a best buy in March 2015 (misprint on box says it's April 2015) says this "Vax's uprights have an appalling one-star reliability rating according to our annual survey of Which? members." Which? rationalises this by saying it has a lengthy six year manufacturer's warranty. While that may be so, do you really want to go through the hassle of repairs?
