Really Good for Carpets


Bought this product on the recommendation of Which and a family member. I wanted a vacuum cleaner that was A rated for carpet as my house is mostly carpeted. It is a lighter machine than others such as Electrolux or Dyson and has the swivel head found...

Avoid very poor breaks easily


Have had air3 for less than 3 years. Used 1-2 times pw in 3 bed house. Poor suction. Mechanism to attach tools falls off mid clean, the handle broke, tool attachment broke, the flex to the power cable broke so it keeps cutting out. Worst vaccum I ever...

great suction


Small compact and light just as described. Only reason for not giving 5 star is the handle, as it feels too low and I'm only 5ft 6.

brush spin on/off button ; compact ; great suction ; lightweight

handle a bit low

I brought a vax as I have had one before but a cylinder but this time I wanted a stronger motor, and a up right for comfort as well as ease of use it certainly that. It comes with a upholstery tool and 2- in - 1 crevice tool, if it had a down side it...

Suits me


I have had the vacuum cleaner a couple of weeks or so and am highly delighted with it. It weights a lot less than the Dyson I used before and the suction is much better, to be fair it is quite strong and needs a bit of muscle to move it about. The...

Good purchase so far


I am happy so far with the purchase, it is a light weight powerful cleaner. Only issues are the cable a little too short so you have to unplug in each room to clean it; the hose is shorter than I would like which means you have to lift the cleaner so...

These are my findings, having used this machine for almost a year. I'ts smaller than you think from the pictures of it. Leaves nice furrow patterns on carpets. You need to have a gorilla hand to uncouple the telescopic tube from the brush bar assembly...
