Strong suction


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...

Bought using mostly club card points, so can't grumble at the price! Little hesitant after reading reviews that express concern about handling, but we find the only minor issue in that regard is how it is VERY light to push but harder to pull back,...

good product


I recently bought this item and started to clean my carpets almost immediately. I found it easy to use and my carpets certainly looked brilliant after the clean. I have used earlier models and was always very tired after using them but this model is...

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...

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...

would not buy again


The hoover is to powerful and the body keeps falling, the attachments are useless as the don't stay on, the hose on the side is too small and has already split, so waiting for a new hoover, its light wight but flimsy, cannot use on hard floors

Vax U88 AM Be Air3 Multi cyclonic vacuum cleaner


A brilliant hoover that picks up pet hair beautifully. Judging by the amount that it has picked up in the bagless container it looks like my carpets have never been hoovered!!

Does what we bought it for


Excellent suction! Light and easy to carry. We got it for the upstairs bedrooms to save bringing the larger one up but we now take it downstairs and do everything!! However... it's not very big and I'm 6' and have to push it in a rather stooped manner....
