“Don't be fooled by initial results!”

Written on: 19/01/2013 by Murph77 (1 review written)

This was a replacement for a Vax Mach 3 hoover which was excellent until it gave up. Anyway this was my replacement on the excellent warranty that is offered. When it arrived it looked the business and to be honest as a hoover it is very good. All the things they say and more! But the 1 star review is because of just how awful you realise it is after using it for a while. It is probably the most uncomfortable hoover to push around. The handle is really awkward in shape and hurts your hand. The… Read Full Review

“Vax Mach Air Force 2”

Written on: 19/09/2011

The Vax was easy to assemble with a place for all tools which makes it a compact machine. I did think however that the hook for the power cable could be a little bigger as the lead is very long and tends to slip off if not careful. Having a long lead is a definite plus as it means I no longer have to keep unplugging and plugging in as I move about the house. I found the machine itself fairly heavy to lift though this was not really noticeable when vacuuming and also means that there is no risk… Read Full Review

I totally disagree with the above review, in my opinion this is a very very poor vacuum cleaner, I have it for several months and I've had to take it to pieces and re-assemble it after every use, the air relief valve goes off constantly making a terrible hissing noise and the whole machine has to be switched off and cleaned again! Heavy, cumbersome and in my opinion cheap components make this a bad buy. I hope other people have more luck with it than I did

Couldn't have said it better myself. Awful hoover that has to be taken apart fully, screws and all to be cleaned at least once a month.

Written on: 18/09/2011 by Chocolate22 (1 review written)

I have three Springer Spaniel so finding a vacuum that's up to the job for the right price is tough. so I was delighted when Vax asked if I would test out the Air Force 2 Reach and tell you guys what I thought. I think Vax are onto something here. I like my house CLEAN and free from Vacuum Dust that doesn't set me off sneezing. One that doesn't require a degree to use and stores nicely in the cupboard or the corner of a room. So after taking it from the box and elementary assembly I… Read Full Review

“Very poor machine, mine lasted less than a day.”

Written on: 13/09/2011 by SimonandCharlie (1 review written)

Well my poor old Vax Swift bagless was getting very tired, but I had been so impressed with its performance that I thought I would get another Vax. I picked the "most powerful" model Mach Air Force 2 U89-MAF2-T due to it's supposed performance with pet hair etc, which my old Vax was so good at coping with. So I starte to unpack the machine and found that the "multi purpose" crevis tool was so badly distorted as to be useless, but I decided to carry on and get a replacement sent later. First… Read Full Review

“ Vax U89-MAF2-R Air Force 2 Reach Bagless Upright Vacuum”

Written on: 03/09/2011 by MASTIFF_MOM (1 review written)

This Vax looks both elegant and contemporary and was easy to unpack. The User Guide is short, simple-to-understand and mostly comprised of helpful illustrations. This meant the vacuum cleaner was ready to use in under a minute! I liked the long cable (30 feet), which meant that I avoided the irritation of having to constantly plug and unplug as I vacuumed. LAMINATE & TILED FLOORS Using the hard-surface setting, it effortlessly sucked up the daily load of fur hair shed from our 2 large mastiff… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/09/2011 by bacsa (1 review written)

I was very happy when the cleaner arrived. I have vacuumed my home the evening before, using my old machine from another brand, so I was very curious to see the difference. The first thing I’ve noticed was that it’s heavier than the cleaners I normally use. But I’ve soon forgotten the difference when seen the excellent result. And it’s very easy to manoeuvre. It was very straightforward to put it together, took only a few minutes without any difficulty. Clear instructions are… Read Full Review

Vax U89-MAF2-R Air Force 2 Reach Multi Cyclonic Bagless Upright Vacuum Cleaner I was excited to get this cleaner as it promised a lot and it ticked every box I wanted for me home. The first thing I wanted to do was put the power to the test as it claims to be the most powerful multi cyclonic vacuum cleaner. To do this I thoroughly vacuum a room using my existing Vax mach which is not old and is also a powerful vacuum cleaner. Then I went over it again using the air force 2, any difference?… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/08/2011 by pam61 (1 review written)

Nice, fairly lightweight machine. Good for stairs with the long reach telescopic extension tube. Picks up really well, carpets felt like new after using. Easy to empty dirt container. Very easy to operate and easy to maneuver. On board tools, come in useful. However I did not like where the power cord is situated, as very close to the hose and can be a bit awkward winding up after use, also the turbo brush did not seem very powerful on my machine. Overall I would recommend this machine to… Read Full Review

“Power and Performance - a vacuum cleaner with attitude!”

Written on: 31/08/2011 by judyspooneruk (2 reviews written)

I was delighted when my Vax Air Force 2 Reach vaccuum cleaner arrived. Only shortly before our old cleaner had succumbed to our relentless demands of it dealing with the fur, dust and dirt that 18 dogs can create in our house each day. The instructions that came with the machine were clear, well illustrated and easy to follow. Within a couple of minutes I had my Vax ready and working - couldn't have been easier.First thing I found most useful is the adjustable handle.I'm nearly 5'10 tall and… Read Full Review

“Vax U89-MAF2-R Air Force 2 Reach .. A Cracking Cleaner !!”

Written on: 29/08/2011 by Cerise100 (2 reviews written)

Easily assembled in a few minutes once un-boxed with simply explained instructions, the first noticeable thing is the weight, it is quite heavy when lifted, much more so than my old Vax cleaner. It’s also a little on the noisy side but again not as noisy as my old Vax at least I can hear the phone/doorbell when using this cleaner something unheard of with the old one and I have yet to come across a vacuum cleaner that isn’t noisy. The Good Points Are: Handle can be adjusted to suit your… Read Full Review

“Vax U89-MAF2-R Air Force 2 Reach Multi Cyclonic Bagless”

Written on: 26/08/2011 by Legs11 (1 review written)

This vacuum cleaner literally took seconds to put together. It was very easy to assemble, you slot the handle into the top, untie the power cable and I was ready to vacuum. As I’m quite tall I was pleased the handle height could be adjusted which took no time at all. To switch the vacuum on the on/off button is on the top which I found much easier, I’m not great and have broken foot on/off buttons before so this was a better design in my eyes. To get going you put your foot on front of the… Read Full Review

“at last a vacuum that does what it says - REACHES...”

Written on: 24/08/2011 by MadwithCatsandDogs (5 reviews written)

I have tried to add this review under the new product as described above but it keeps getting defaulted under the pet vax of a similar product code. BUT that said - this vax is amazing - I have 3 floors nine pets and this Vax allows me to clean all flights of stairs from the centre floor without moving the machine - it also has a long power cord which means less unplugging/plugging when moving from room to room. It has all the features of the pet vax but with the extra reach and I must say… Read Full Review
