Written by James Hall | 0 Comments| Last Updated: March 19, 2017

Are you a fan of Vax vacuum cleaners but aren’t sure which to buy? Or simply want to know which are the best Vax cleaners on the market at the moment? Well you’re on the right page! Listed below are our top 4 Vax vacuum cleaner reviews, to make it easier for you to decide which to buy.

Vax is a UK based company that specialises in floor-cleaning appliances, including carpet cleaners, steam cleaners and, of course, vacuums. While the company is based in the UK, all of its models (as far as we know) are either manufactured in Mexico or China.

Unlike other brands that often specialise in particular types of vacuums (such as Morphy Richards which primarily manufacture cordless models), they product a range of models in almost every category. This includes upright vacuums, cylinder, handheld, steam cleaners and cordless – although they are best known for their upright models.

The wide range of Vax vacuum cleaners means there is almost certainly a model that meets your requirements – but can also make it difficult to choose. That’s why we’ve put together a list of the best models according to buyer reviews and features.

Keep in mind that this page contains short overviews of each model, but we also post regular Vax vacuum cleaner reviews. If we haven’t completed a full review of a vacuum you are thinking of buying, make sure you check back regularly as we are adding more all the time.

Top 4 Best Vax Vacuum Cleaners

Vax U84-AL-Pe ReviewVax U84-AL-Pe Air Lift Steerable Pet Vacuum

The U84-AL-Pe Air Lift appears on several of our “Best Of” lists, mainly due to its excellent all-round performance and very reasonable price. It’s built with multi-cyclonic technology, which prevents suction loss, and is designed to be easy to steer around your home. It also has a lightweight cylinder that can be lifted out of the main body for easier cleaning of stairs.

Other features include a TurboTool, which is great for getting rid of pet hair in upholstery, and AAAA performance ratings for energy usage, carpet and hard floor pickup, and dust emissions.

The U84-AL-Pe Air Lift is one of the most popular Vax models on the market according to buyer reviews. A reviewer writes that the machine is highly versatile, due to its attachments and removable canister. She adds that it’s also the most powerful vacuum she has ever owned when it comes to suction. Another reviewer writes that the vacuum is easy to empty and has a useful setting for adjusting height depending on floor type.

We think the U84-AL-Pe Air Lift is one of the best Vax vacuum cleaners on the market at the moment – especially if you have pets. The TurboTool is perfect for removing pet hair, but it also excels at almost any other cleaning job and the detachable canister makes vacuuming stairs much easier.

Vax U90-MA-Re Air Reach Upright Vacuum CleanerVax U90-MA-Re Air Reach

The U90-MA-Re is another popular upright vacuum cleaner, with a slightly higher RRP than the U84 (although, paradoxically, it can often be bought for cheaper). The model is also multi-cyclonic, which prevents suction loss, and is also designed for convenient cleaning. It’s lightweight at 4.9kg (although there are certainly lighter models available) and has a long cord and hose, to reduce how often you need to change plug sockets.

Other features include an eco-friendly motor, on-board TurboTool for pet hair and a 1.5L capacity. The U90-MA-Re also comes with several attachments, such as a crevice tool and dusting brush.

Reviewers have been impressed with the quality and performance of the U90-MA-Re, with the model receiving a high average rating on shopping sites. A reviewer writes that the machine is much less expensive than comparable models from brands such as Dyson, and also appears to be more powerful. Another reviewer writes that he has owned the vacuum for six months and has been impressed by its power.

If you’re looking for a cleaner that’s relatively lightweight, has a long hose and is easy to move around the home, then the U90-MA-Re Air Reach could be an excellent option. It doesn’t have the detachable canister of the U84, but is one of the best Vax pet vacuum cleaners and has received thousands of positive reviews at the time of writing.

Overview:

  • Price Range: £
  • Power: 800W
  • Weight: 4.9kg
  • Dust Capacity: 1.5 litres
  • Filter Type: HEPA

Vax 6131T 3-in-1 CanisterVax 6131T 3-in-1 Canister

Let’s move onto a completely different type of machine now – the 3-in-1 6131T (you can read our full review here). As you can tell from the picture, this is nothing like the other models on this list, and that’s because it’s designed to be a carpet and spill cleaner as well as a vacuum.

In other words, this is a complete home cleaner (at least according to Vax) that’s still a powerful vacuum when required. It’s a bagged model that’s easy to move around the home, due to the five wheels. It also comes with a crevice tool, dusting brush and several other features. It has a huge 10L capacity, making it perfect for getting rid of spills.

Reviewers seem to love the 6131T, with most rating it either four or five stars at the time of writing. A reviewer writes that she was shocked at how much dirt the carpet cleaning function removed from her carpet. Another reviewer writes that she could clean her entire flat without changing socket, due to the long power cord. She also adds that the vacuum has “fantastic” suction power.

If you’re looking for a versatile cleaning solution for your home, the 6131T Canister vacuum cleaner could be the perfect option. It’s a perfectly adequate and powerful vacuum in its own right, but the carpet and spill cleaning functions make it an excellent tool for any home.

Overview:

  • Price Range: £
  • Power: 1300W
  • Weight: 8kg
  • Dust Capacity: 10 litres
  • Filter Type: Standard

Key Features:

  • Multi-functional home cleaner
  • Powerful vacuum mode
  • Large 10 litre capacity

Another reviewer writes that the vacuum is superior to his previous Dyson in terms of suction power.

If you need an inexpensive pet vacuum, then the U87-MA-Pe could be the perfect option. It’s one of the best Vax vacuum cleaners on the market, and is available for a very reasonable price.
