Vax 6131 multifunction carpet cleaner review

  (Rating Hidden)

Like other multifunctional cylinder carpet cleaners, this Vax 6131 can wash carpets as well as vacuum them like a traditional vacuum cleaner. We tried this Vax carpet cleaner in both wet and dry modes to see whether it would perform as well as its rivals.

I have one of the originals this machine is based on. I only use it as a dry vacuum in the garage or during building projects etc. It is powerful and extremely robust even after 20+ years of sucking up *really* nasty materials and living in an unheated...

We have had ours for approx 4 years and I am surprised by the rather poor review. I have found that ours has plenty of suction for ordinary dry cleaning of wood and carpeted flooring. I agree that changing over to wet cleaning is a bit laborious but...

Great vacuum and cleaner


I bought this vax a week ago and am really pleased with it. With 2 young children and a puppy it really had it's work cut out to clean our living room carpet but it's done a great job. Very easy to clean afterwards too.

Easy to set up & use


I am very impressed with this Vax carpet cleaner, I have used industrial "wet vacs" that are nowhere near as good as this little wonder. Worked well on my aunt's carpet that was looking tired due to her pet running in and out on her carpet, removed any...

They dont make it how they used too!


Feels like VAX has gone back 40yrs rather than innovating.... My last one was the 6151SX which seems to be far superior quality and its been over 10 yrs since i bought that one... I would have thought a lot of the features would now be the basic...
