  (Rating Hidden)

Expected better from Vax


Cleaner is quite bulky and has lots of parts. Long hose, grip and mains cord are a plus. The wheels also glide well and unlike many of these type of cleaners it doesn't fall over easily. Suction is great but using this cleaner is a lot of hard work so...
