Steerable so you cLightweight cylinder lifts out to clean high surfaces
Gives great results on both hard floors and carpets
This bagless upright vacuum cleaner from Vax is easy to empty and will help you to save money too, because you’ll never have to buy replacement bags. It uses HEPA filters which capture up to 99% of airborne allergens, making it ideal for allergy sufferers. This model also uses clever Cyclone technology to separate air and dust for powerful cleaning and has a lightweight cylinder which lifts out so you can clean high places easily. It’s suitable for carpets and hard floors, making it a great choice for all-round cleaning.
I hadn't realised how heavy & hard to manoeuvre our previous vacuum cleaner was until I got this. It is very easy to use but more effective than the much more expensive brand it was replacing. So far, I am delighted. The dust cylinder is smaller than my last cleaner but it's easy to empty.

This hoover is great. I had to replace my old dyson as its suction had completely gone, to be honest I was never that impressed with it anyway. I didn't expect this to be even half as powerful as it is and would definitely recommend tat people opt for this over the dyson any day.
If I had one complaint, it would be that it was almost too powerful as it makes hoovering rugs impossible. I would recommend to the makers that they design an additional function for hoovering rugs, reducing the suction.

Pet hairs? What pet hairs?
I love my new Vax, I have a dark red carpet and a little white dog.... after I Vax-innate it, (did you see what I did there?), you would never know I had a dog at all. The suction on full literally lifts my carpet up! Its a fantastic vacuum.

Vax U84-AL-Pe Upright Vacuum Cleaner in Silver / Blue
All in all the Vax Airlift Steerable Pet seems a really good piece of kit and a very capable vacuum cleaner. Assembly out of the box was straightforward and it was ready to use in moments. Build quality seems excellent and all the parts clip together with a satisfying click. The switches, buttons and releases were all easily accessible and in logical places, not to different from our previous model from another manufacturer.
My initial thought when assembling the Vax was that it was actually quite heavy, I was in fact wrong. When I compared it to our old machine it was noticeably lighter and as it’s articulated (steerable) it’s highly manoeuvrable making the negotiation of various bits of furniture a breeze.
In testing it for the review I vacuumed the whole house! This had two immediate effects. One was a very happy spouse and secondly a realisation that our existing machine simply wasn’t cutting it any more. The Vax picked up loads. I mean loads! It was clearly picking up stuff that the other machine had been unable to lift. I’ll put this down to the variable slider on the business end of the Vax. Slide one way for laminate and short pile carpets, slide the other for long pile carpets… and anywhere in between to two extremes for surfaces that differ.
I found that on a very short pile rug that at the Vax’s appropriate setting the vacuum wouldn’t move, it was simply sucking too fiercely. A slight adjustment to the ‘pile slider’ remedied this and the Vax moved freely while still giving the rug a thorough clean.
The Vax performed equally well on every other surface I cleaned and left me staring at a sizable mass of debris in the cylinder. The cylinder is easy to detach from the machine and simple to open over the bin to remove the dust.
My only concern about the Vax Airlift Steerable Pet was the ease, or lack of it, when using the clip on tools. I felt there was at least one step too many to assemble the hose/handle/attachment. Easy enough but not something I’d want to repeat over and over as I worked through the house.

Very pleased with this vacuum. Very good suction for picking up my molting springers hair from carpet and hard floors. The lift off section is great for stairs.
