Vax Carpet Cleaner
We have had this Hoover for years and years. I actually think it is the 2nd Vax that we have had since myself and my husband started to live together all those years ago. I am not allowed to do the Hoovering at home as hubby decided that I wasn't any good at it. I don't take that as an insult, it's a lucky escape from having to do it, and I think the way I Hoover he is probably right - I just aim the brush at random bits. Since he was small he used to help his mum with the Hoovering so this is "his job". He was in charge of picking the Hoover and he picked this as his parents had always had Vax's. Also since this double's up as a Carpet Cleaner then it is quite practical. We have used it to wash the Carpets now and again and the odd member of my family has borrowed it at times as well.
I can't remember exactly how much we paid for this all those years ago but I think it was around the £160 mark, which to me seemed pretty expensive.
In my view this is quite a cumbersome Hoover but it does have Wheels on it so it is easy to wheel this about. This stands quite tall though so has a tendancy to tip a little. The cable on this is pretty long and this wraps arounf the neck of the Hoover and is held in place with little clips. The attatchements sit near the neck of the Hoover as well and I always seem to make them fall off when I move the Hoover - it's best if I don't go near it at all to be honest.
There is 2 buttons on the top of this which is the dry and wet ones. The bag sits in the middle of the Body and you just unclip the top of this to get the bag in or out. If you are looking to wash the Carpets then unclip the top, take the bag out, remove the plastic tub and fill it with water and Shampoo. The only other bit you need to do is attatch the plastic tubes to the Hoover Head and pole, and this in turn will pump the Water down the Brush and then the dirty water will go into the bowl so you can tip it out easily.
This does the job it's meant to do and although it was a bit more expensive then other brands this hasn't gave us any problems and we've probably had this one for about 7 years.
