I have never written a review on anything like this before but felt compelled to due to the experience I have had with it. This machine is absolutely appaling. I could live with the fact that it topples over whenever you use the attachments and smashes you on the back of the head. I could even live with the fiddly mechanism to empty it. I could live with the fact that when using it on the stairs you need to be a contortionost to avoid it toppling down the stairs.
What enfuriates me is… Read Full Review

i bought one of these when our dyson packed up and saw one of these at nearly half the price of dyson, it comes with a 6 year warranty as does the dyson and it covers the same points as dyson. the turbo tool atatchment is brilliant for stairs and upholstory.
we borrowed a freinds dyson after ours broke and hoovered before using the new one and was amazed at how much more it picked up… Read Full Review

Best ever Vax in my opinion, i have had Vax vacuums before, all have been good but this is excellent, i could not believe the amount of dust/fluff & hair this vacuum picked up, i thought my house was clean until i tried this Mach 5. It is a little bit heavier then some vacuums but that is not a problem, it is of very sturdy construction and the attachments are easy to connect and use, it easy to empty, no bags so no problem of finding replacements. It goes from carpet to hard floor and back… Read Full Review

i thought id leave a review as most ive read have been negative. the only time my mach 5 has ever fallen over is when im doing the stairs and the pipe is stretched to it longest lenght and you pull it over. for me that was the only fault but i still managed to clean the top step. its not heavey at all. its heavey if youve only had a cheap hoover in the past. the tools with it work really well. just have a gander at the instructions for a minute and its simple. there was no assembly required… Read Full Review

i thought i would write this review as although i really do think the Vax VZL6015 Mach 5 is one of the best hoovers i have ever bought especially with 3 dogs and one being a border collie with a long coat there a few things that the description does not mention. 1: when delivered it is delivered in bits for you to build which was a bit of shock 2: im sure the description didnt mention that the handle slides back into the handle as part of the features which leaves it feeling a little unsteady… Read Full Review

Love the Vax VZL6015 Mach 5 hoover it sucks so much dirt and dust out of carpets. The handy adjustable height handle is great when in use and makes easier to store. My only gripe is that it is bit on the heavy side… Read Full Review

Worst cleaner I have owned in 40 years. Falls over suddenly & heavily. Has smashed items, chipped wooden floor & injured myself & pets, glad I have no small children.
Vax helpline suggests that 2 people should opreate it, yes, really!… Read Full Review

The Vax VZL6015 Mach 5 is probably the best vacuum cleaner I have had, generally happy with it. Has extreme suction, easy to keep clean never have to replace filters, the attachments for the hose spins with amazing speed and is easy to clean, lots of see through parts that let you see if there is blockages (not had one). 6 year guarantee. web site is full of useful vids, and spare parts. Bad points are: Heavy to push around and lift, quite often falls over when using the hose. Had to assemble… Read Full Review

I didn't mind this hoover to begin with, picked up alot of stuff but when using the hose it always falls.
It's so heavy I hardly take it upstairs to hoover!
Lastly just been totally unhappy with the guarantee, was using it tonight and the brush bar started making quite a noise, called helpdesk, said it sounds faulty and I'll need to buy a new part as it's classed as general wear and tear....6 months old in an average 3 bed house, don't expect things to need replacing after 6 months. Wouldn't… Read Full Review

This Vax VZL6015 Mach 5 is by far the best upright hoover i have ever owned. It is extremely powerful and picks up everything. I admit it is a bit heavy, but i'm willing to put up with that for a completely pet hair free home. 6 year guatantee is an absolute bonus. also price was fantastic… Read Full Review

Had a Dyson which did everything I wanted from it, but no sooner than the warranty ran out the faults started, this then resulted in high cost of repairs. So the Vax VZL6015 Mach 5 with a 6 year warranty looked just the job.......but that's where the good points end as there are only so many times you can put up with getting cracked on your legs when you use the tools as the thing falls over at the slightest movement. The weight of the machine didn't 'appear' too bad in the shop, but in… Read Full Review

I'm sure if I had the time or the inclination I could find more bad points. Normally I wouldn't dream of bothering to write my opinion of something on a reveiw site but I am so sick of this Vax VZL6015 Mach 5 hoover and incensed that someone has trialled it and thought if fit for human use that I felt I had to warn others. I went into Currys to buy a dyson and was stupid and gullible enough to be persuaded by someone I thought was a member of currys staff, and I subsequently found out worked… Read Full Review

This vax VZL6015 Mach 5 is the best of all the vacuum cleaners i have had.
Including the dyson animal, I have three persian cats there hair really sticks to the carpets . There hair is so soft it is as if you had rubbed cotten wool into the carpet.
But it got it all out that was once i had worked out the different hights settings for different carpets .It has not fallen over yet and I have used all the tools.I cannot rate this machine highly enough .
Plus I get a six year warranty what more… Read Full Review

Bought this Vax VZL6015 Mach 5 hoover to replace my ageing dyson DC01. Absolutely stunned by the amount of dust and dirt it picked up, bearing in mind i had hoovered only a few days previously.
Easy to assemble from the box, and adjustable height of the mach 5's handle makes it far less back breaking than non adjusting models.
The small brush 'turbo' tool absolutely brilliant for sofa's and curtains.
I was dubious at first having always been a Dyson person, and the fact this was £50… Read Full Review

I purchased the unit from Argos for £119.98. It replaced the Vax orange 6131 wet and dry cleaner.
Unit seems very solidly built and sturdy, but relatively heavy compared to other upright bagless cleaners. It took about 15 minutes to assemble the Mach 6 straight out of the box, and the instructions were clear.
I proceeded to hoover the house, and was astonished by the level of dirt and dust it picked up. I've never had a Dyson before, so cannot make a direct comparison. However, there definitely… Read Full Review
