“Spend more time clearing "Blockages" than hoovering”

Written on: 15/08/2014 by Ian_from_Midlands (1 review written)

This has got to be the worst hoover I have ever bought or used. Yes, it is light etc BUT the foam filter is constantly in need of cleaning out, the filter in the middle blocls with just a few hairs I have one cat and it can't handle the stray hairs from than. It can't handle any amount of dust and don't even get me started on the grand-childrens (paper) crafting The attachments are not the best of fits. The main Head needs to people to remove it, the extendable pine keeps falling out of… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/01/2014 by markaylott (9 reviews written)

not only is the vax vacuum cleaner the worst , but also customer service is terrible I had a faulty machine after 6 months from new and vax replaced this in warranty the new machine completely ruined a brand new carpet after 18 months but vax say that this was out of the warranty because it is 2 years from first purchase !!!! even though it was only 18 months old they sent round an independent assessor who agreed that the machine was at fault for ruining the carpet and vax took the machine… Read Full Review

“Vax disappointed me the first time, now I'm happy!”

Written on: 10/11/2013 by Mrs-Wirges (1 review written)

I've had in all 4 different vacuums since March 2013 ! 2 of which were vax pet zooms. I had so many problems with the pet zooms I changed the machine completely for a bissell, which again broke on me so I changed for a vax power 5 pet ( crazy right ? ) Well I have a male akita. Huge dog with extra fluffy coats that malt like mad ! This vaccuum was purchased simply because it was the same price as the vaccuum iwas exchanging it for, but had better suction, I was reluctant though because of… Read Full Review

“I have had this vacuum now for approximately a month. ...”

Written on: 29/04/2013

I have had this vacuum now for approximately a month. After being used to a Dyson, I was pleasantly surprised at the powerful cleaning and suction on this vacuum. Then the niggles started. I can't always separate the metal tube from the hose to enable me to vacuum the stairs and have broken one of the clips trying to separate it. The brushes constantly fall off the holder and I now keep them separate to the vacuum cleaner. The angle on the small turbo brush makes it hard work to use. Last… Read Full Review

“Do Not Buy”

Written on: 23/03/2013

This is without doubt the worst vacuum cleaner I have ever used. The only positive point is that it has very good suction power. negatives are:- It is heavy to use and very unbalanced. It will fall over very easily and is almost impossible to keep upright when using the tools. The handle is poorly designed and very uncomfortable to use made worse of course by the fact is so heavy and awkward to use. The variable hight setting don't quite fit the bill and are difficult to get right. The… Read Full Review

“Vax C89-P6-B Power 6 Bagless Cylinder Vacuum Cleaner”

Written on: 27/10/2012 by shamseft3345 (1 review written)

As Blur had it, Modern Life is Rubbish, and the Vax C89-P6-B Power 6 Bagless Cylinder Vacuum Cleaner is a piece of consumer goods that that punches well above its weight in contributing to that experience. My partner bought this, not from Amazon, from where I should have, but from Curries. Quite soon after buying it it began overheating and cutting out. I was disgruntled by how soon this occurred, but thought must be a blockage, which it was, and I cleared it. Next time I used it it went again… Read Full Review

“Out of the box and overheated half way round the FIRST...”

Written on: 05/08/2012 by mattsicles (1 review written)

Had this thing 2 days and it's going back. Sucked like a beast for about 5 minutes then cut out. It NOW says there is a blockage thanks to the helpful "it's not working properly" light on the back. Left it overnight and cleared soft and hard filters and guess what? It cut out after 5 minutes again. I have a cat, but as far as this thing is concerned I may as well have 4 lions and have been hoovering the lawn. Pants… Read Full Review

“worst vacuum ever!”

Written on: 10/07/2012 by GriffinM (1 review written)

I have a short haired dog but this vacuum cannot handle the hair on my floor. within a month of normal use it started to block up for no reason, it fires the filter out of the back every 5 mins. Even after dismantling it and cleaning it shuts itself down after two mins use. It gets so hot it has started melting it's own filter! I have never left a review of anything before but this vacuum is so bad I felt I had to warn people!… Read Full Review

“Wish I'd never bought it.”

Written on: 27/04/2012

There's nothing I like about this Vax Power 6 Pet cylinder cleaner. It's heavier than I'd expected, the hose keeps twisting around itself or the cleaner or me. To empty the dust container, there are two parts which need emptying separately. All the buttons and twist-locks are infuriatingly stiff. Removing the hose is a nightmare: two tiny little "buttons" must be squeezed together on either side to release the hose, they are fiddly and stiff and hurt my hands. The metal tubing keeps falling off… Read Full Review

“Pet hairs!!!!”

Written on: 06/03/2012 by donorong (1 review written)

I have read some of the recent reviews. They are too recent, wait until you have used the Vax for a while. You will be OK if your pet is a hamster or maybe a snake! We have had 4 replacement turbo heads because Vax say they should work. They don't! Obviously with any pet type cleaner you have to remove the hairs that collect around the brush, but with these you have to dismantle the whole head because the bearings and belt get so clogged up the turbo siezes up. Whilst this is OK if you have… Read Full Review

“Small but Mighty”

Written on: 15/02/2012 by cherryblossoms (1 review written)

It's not very often that I only have positive things to say about a Vacuum cleaner but the Vax power 6 is my favourite yet! We live in a small flat and don't have too much space to store a large upright vacuum cleaner so this cylinder size is perfect for us. One thing I really love about this hoover is the length of the flex, I find that I only need to change the plug once during my flat sweep as the flex is really long as is the hose making cleaning time takes less time! I manage to clean… Read Full Review

“fab on dog hair”

Written on: 11/02/2012

This is a fabulous hoover for picking up dog hair.I have two German Shepherds, who shed terribly on a daily basis, which means that I have to hoover the house at least once a day!!! The Vax Power 6 has excellent suction and has cut down on the amount of time I spend hoovering as it collects all hair etc quickly and effectively. It is easy to empty the easy to manoeuvre around the house. Would definitely recommend this hoover… Read Full Review

“Vax Pet 6 is the best vacuum cleaner I have had”

Written on: 08/02/2012 by charliechinuk (1 review written)

For such a small machine, it has one powerful suction. My dog sheds fur for fun and this picks up his fur no problem at all! Nothing is missed! The attachments are superb. I like the good range provided. The vacuum is good to manoeuvre and it makes the job easy and quite enjoyable. It is easy to clean. The cable and the hose is very long which means that I don't have to unplug and plug in all the time. It is the smallest vacuum cleaner that I have ever had, which is brilliant. I don't have… Read Full Review

“Vax C89-P6N-P Power 6 Pet Bagless Cylinder Vacuum Cleaner”

Written on: 07/02/2012 by rachelnoble (1 review written)

The Vax Power 6 Pet is a light, very powerful and beautifully inexpensive model vacuum cleaner. It was effective at picking up the fur from my 3 cats. Was really amazed when I viewed the amount of fluff and dirt I saw in the bagless cylinder after using it for only a minute. The long hose and cord were also great on the main stairs. I noticed that my allergic reactions have reduced considerably after having this pet vacuum. I rarely sneeze now before using this vacuum was choking and had a… Read Full Review

“Powerful and compact”

Written on: 07/02/2012

When the Vax Power 6 came it was very easy to unpack and get started. I did have some problems with the turbo brush as it would not seem to turn all of the time but it was very easy to fix has the brush comes apart with such ease for cleaning. The Vax Power 6 itself seems to be very powerful with 3 power settings which is a very handy feature as I can turn it down to suit the room I am in at the time. I was amazed by the amount of dirt that was coming up from the rug in my living room. It… Read Full Review

“small but powerful”

Written on: 07/02/2012 by lilarasi (1 review written)

This hoover is fab - small, compact, good looking but really powerful. It picks up cat hairs even when not on full power and the additional turbo brush can be used on carpet to pick up any stubborn pet hairs. However there's nowhere on board to store this and the other additional tool- they tend to fall off the hoover when using it, which is a little irritating. However this is the only downside with the hoover. It really is powerful, I haven't had to turn it to full power yet. The cord is… Read Full Review

“Lightweight and powerfull”

Written on: 06/02/2012 by katym13 (3 reviews written)

When i first put it together i was slightly annoyed that there were so many extensions for it and the instructions didn't really tell me what they were all for and that there isn't anywhere on the hoover to keep them all so i would have liked a holder for all the parts. That has been my only problem with it and after using it the issues with the extensions were soon forgotten. I have never been able to get rid of all the dog hairs off my dark carpet but this hoover managed it effortlessly even… Read Full Review
