do not pick up pet hair..or anything basically. got it about 3 years ago, turbo tool stopped working after a month. main component pick up ok on bare floor, not so good on carpets. you basically end up picking most of it by hand. Just finished hoovering my bedroom 4/3 square metres and took me 45 minutes. Very frustrating taking it's awfully heavy! i'll definitely stick with some other brand in future… Read Full Review

Can't remember which model it was as I thrown it! It's was a vacuum cleaner with the pet hair thing. Very powerful at start and was quite impressed. But quickly lost power, height setting broke very quickly as plastic parts are cheap and flimsy. My sons toys are better quality. Kept cutting out after hoovering one room. Power button broke and went into machine and then started smoking and now won't work. Couldn't use it to do stairs as too heavy and unstable. Would never ever buy any of thier… Read Full Review

Vax 1700 watt
Cable gets in the way
Difficult to use on the stairs
Only works well on floorboard setting
Thermal cut out has a problem and the cleaner has now broken after 18 months as a result of this. It now cuts out after 5 minutes and stays off for 30 minutes.
On the positive side, it is powerful and Vax has an efficient customer service but of course, it has they say now past it's guarantee by 6 months so tough.
My Hoover Senior lasted 25 years with one repair(brushes for the motor… Read Full Review

This vacuum cleaner is rubbish. It doesn,t lift unless your on the lowest setting and then you get the smell of burning rubber.I only use it for the stairs as it lifts ok using the tools. BUY ANOTHER CLEANER, NOT THIS ONE… Read Full Review

Awful. Sucks nothing up, keeps cutting out. Have complained to Vax but am still waiting on a reply.
Will never buy a vax product again.
There is nothing positive about this product except I managed to purchase it from the shop across the road, so I didn't have far to carry it. However, I am not able to return it there as the sticker on the top of it informs me. The fact that Vax have put a sticker on each of their products instructing customers to "not take it back to the shop" would suggest… Read Full Review

The worst vacuum I have ever had. It is very heavy and the turbo tool has never lived up to its expectations as it blocks very quickly after only vacuuming the mat which the pets lie on, and yet it is supposed to be excellent for pet hair. Also the hose does not stretch very far on stairs like it stated it would in the sales jargon… Read Full Review

Suction is quite good. especially on a wooden floor. Hard work hoovering the stairs due the weight of the thing. Major problem with overheating on my hoover causing it to cut out, it won't work for an hour then it will for 10 minutes, then it won't work for an hour and so on! Very frustrating!… Read Full Review

VAX 1700 WATT V006 really sucks, in a good way. Has lasted years, but starting to wish it was less reliable as I fancy upgrading to a vac that doesn't sound like an jet airliner on full thrust. Bought it regraded so it was a bargain… Read Full Review

REVIEW FOR Turboforce 1700watt cyclonic power cleaner.
I have read some reviews on this hoover and must say some people are rather stupid, I mean no offence but seriously.
First the person that complained about blocked hose, burned out belts, running over the cable and it cutting out. lets take this one at a time.
Easiest thing to fix, unblock it and dont pick up things like staws big bits of paper ect as they get stuck in the bends and dirt clogs up behind it causing the hoover… Read Full Review

When my Dyson broke I was reluctant to pay out for a new one and saw this online - I thought "what a great bargain!" however 1 month down the line when I attempted to vacuum up the Christmas tree pine needles I realised I should have splashed out on a new Dyson. The VAX cuts out at the drop of a hat and will not start for any time between 10 mins and an hour - I don't know why the time changes! I have been through 3 belts and the latest problem is that the dirt all seems to get stuck in the… Read Full Review

The VAX 1700 WATT V006 is relatively cheap to buy, but very poor pick up from day one. Has to be set to lowest level to have any effect on carpet, but this makes it almost impossible to push. Cheap build quality, first broke down two days after guarantee ran out. Sent back to Vax for repair, cost £30.
Has got through four brush rollers at £13 a time (each has split inn the same place, suggesting a design fault), and at least eight drive belts at £3 a time. Bought for £80, and in seven… Read Full Review

This VAX 1700 WATT V006 is the best hoover ive used to date. Its suction capacity is so good, its a pleasure to use although be warned "it will suck up anything in its path". It is heavy to lift and can be a bit heavy to push, but on the whole thats the only negative point.i personally find. Theres ample cord so u can hoover the upstairs whilst plugged in downstairs. The bagless cylinder is very large and even when eventually full still proves its suction capability. The flters are very… Read Full Review

Swear I will never buy another Vax , whoever designed this one has never done the cleaning at home. Poor design and would appear that its made to last just beyond the warranty. Cheaper than a Dyson but you'll need a new one every 12 months… Read Full Review
