I hate this machine with a passion. Sure it has loads of suction but it is compromised as soon as you start using it. the fill capacity is so small that it has to be emptied after hoovering a 3m x 4m carpet. So if you have a dog it is of no use what so ever, despite its name.
It overheats so easily then you have to wait hours for the thermal switch to reset. the filters are really fiddly to but back together. A real disadvantage considering it has to be emptied and cleaned with each carpet.
the tools are flimsy and the design is ill conceived. As soon as i can afford a new machine i will dumping this one in a skip. so come on vax give us back your original design because they were robust and did exactly what they said on the tin.
