The Vax Air Mini vacuum cleaner comes at a bargain price for what you get. The unit is completely compact and can fit into the smallest spaces. A handy clip on top of the unit means you can stand the pipe and fitting upright, making storage much easier. It's bagless, which is always great, and is incredibly easy to clean (press button, press second button, done). It has a very strong suction on it so you carpet is sure to get a proper clean, and it comes with a number of different head fittings so that you can clean your carpet, curtains, wood floor and upholstery efficiently. The wire is extra long and ravels up inside the unit at the push of a button (no manual winding here), so no more switching plugs halfway through hovering the stairs! The filter ideally needs changing every 6 months, but you can buy these for relatively cheap from the Vax website.
I just moved into a one bed flat.
Ordinarily, I prefer an upright as I tend to find that they have better suction and are better for bigger areas. But as storage is at a premium and I have lots of tight corners in the flat, I decided to try for a little machine.
This stood out for me as it was on offer on Amazon at the time, and I had a few vouchers to use up. It had consistently good reviews on that site, so I decided to try it.
I have been incredibly impressed by this little machine! I measure the suction of a vacuum based on whether it sucks actual dust up, as opposed to just 'surface dirt'. Well, this has not let me down!! It has great suction, and can even deal with the little bits of thread that I drop when sewing. I've had issues with this in the past and this machine hasn't disappointed!
The machine does come with a number of attachments, which all work effectively, but I tend to just use the main attachment, which is great.
The best thing about this machine is that while it is powerful, it's very small and easy to stow away.
Nothing negative to say about it really, great little machine and well worth considering!
I moved to a new home a couple of years ago and decided that I would use my old vacuum to aid in
cleaning my old flat after the removal men had left and treat myself to a new model. The machine I bought, (not a Vax) works brilliantly upstairs, because that is where it lives- I cannot use it on the stairs nor carry it down the stairs to use, it is simply too heavy. A cheap remedy for the stairs and downstairs had to suffice. Until now, when I unpacked my new Air Mini C88-AM-B and within minutes of assembly I had cleaned both the lower floor and the stairs. When I say clean, I mean really really clean, I do not claim to understand what having 280 air watts of cleaning power means, what I do know is what the results show me and I am very happy. It only weighs 4.9 kg which is amazing for this level of cleaning power, as I say a cheaper light model has been used in the interim. cheap and light ...yes.. this level of cleaning?....not even close.
The C88 somes with a combination floor head, an upholstery tool, a crevice tool and a dusting brush. Vax have even supplied a telescopic extension tube and a tool stoarge clip. Short of sending someone around to do the cleaning, what more could you ask for? Did I hear you say an allergy filter?- no problem it has one of those too.
There is, as is pretty standard today, a button to use for plug storage.
My only grumble would be that the QuickStart Guide enclosed with the machine was very faint and the print was miniscule so thankfully I found a comprehensive user manual on www.vax.co.uk. You can also buy parts and accessories from this site, (well you never know, the dog might bury the crevice tool !!).
I have no hesitation in recommending this machine, with this level of cleaning guaranted for 6 years, how can you go wrong?
A really efficient little cleaner!!
For its small size it has incredibly powerful suction & has really cleaned my carpets very well, it has managed to find dirt that I did not even know was there & could not see & I must say I was a bit shocked at exactly how much it got out when I first used it. I thought my old Vax cleaner was good but this is heaps better. It is a bit fiddly at first to empty but when you get used to it even that is quick & easy.
It is easy to use & very light too so you can move it about with no problems & no more aching back for me!
A good buy especially if you live in a flat as its easy to store as well, I am really pleased with it & would not hesitate to recommend it.
