Vacuum cleaners are always an essential part of life and we all need them to do various tasks and we always look for the cheapest and most reliable type of model.
Vax I have used in the past for cleaning vacuums those lovely carpet cleaners I had to use when I had carpets throughout the home. Fortunately I need a vacuum to clean up a few rugs and the carpet stairs I have in my home.
On an outing a few weeks again I saw this vacuum at a reduction centre for ex Argos products and it was priced at £35. The average price online was over £100.
I instantly made the purchase because of what it offered in terms of features but also the measurements and the brand name which appealed to me also.
The vacuum was simple to construct and took just moments there was no need for the manual for this machine which is always a nice thing to mention.
The vacuum is an upright machine so it means you get to carry it around and hide it away much easier and the size measurements are H109cm, W 38.5cm and D 33.5cm.
The machine is in black so if offers in my view a classy look which would suit most homes. There is the see through 3 litre cylinder which dominates the front of this machine.
The wheels which are grey are very bulky and made from plastic and make it easy to glide around carpet flooring or even the hard wood because some people do need to vacuum the wooden floors due to crumbs which spill over them.
My first time using this machine I found everything to be fantastic because you have a 7.5m power cord so it enables you to park the vacuum and then make sure you have plenty of extra room as well. I get so angry when I have a vacuum with a short power cord because it restricts the amount of movement you have available to you.
The main section which is used for the carpet is so powerful it sucks up so much stuff because the vacuum has got this 2000 watts but also 200 air watts and to me the air watts means very little but the overall effect it produces is excellent.
I used the machine on a carpet full of pet hair to get a glance at how powerful the machine was and I was left very proud. It sucked up the hair with little trouble and it made me think it was worth the £100 plus value. The machine has two plastic tubes which can attach to the machine as well.
There are useful to go underneath a chair or perhaps go around a bend in a room which the vacuum might have problems with. The only downside with the vacuum is the plastic cylinder which keeps all the rubbish you hoover up.
I had some trouble getting this to disconnect from the machine because you feel you might snap the plastic connection at the top. Once this is disconnected you have a handle and are able to throw away the rubbish from this bag less vacuum.
There is a filter which is easy to clean and can come out and the cylinder is very easy to attach again once you have cleaned the machine out.
You also have a little gadget at the front of the machine which lets you determine what floor surface you're using. If you have a hard carpet which might have dirt stuck right in the middle it can be very difficult to vacuum up so switching to this setting in theory enables you get that rubbish up much more efficiently.
You also have got the ability to suck up virtually everything however I did get a sock stuff and the smell was horrible so you have to be careful it can easily suck up virtually anything it wants to.
I was satisfied with the overall power it produced, how quickly it cleaned a carpet and also how good it was with making sure it got dirt from thick carpets up as well.
I would say the one downside is the cylinder the fear you could damage the plastic connection at the top is a real issue but overall the vacuum for £35 is fantastic value for money.
Summary: A great vacuum at a cheap price
