“absolutely useless!!!!!!”

Written on: 27/02/2012 by morrishtribe (1 review written)

Doesn't get pet hair up, clogs very easily the adjuster doesn't seem to get the carpet level right. It's the worst vaccuum I ever had and a complete waste of money as for the 6 yr warranty that's a waste of time too they're not interested in having it in to fix and just tell you to try this try that etc do not buy this product you would be wasting your time and money… Read Full Review

“NEVER buy this product”

Written on: 08/12/2011 by SarahBrown17 (1 review written)

So heavy to use, got clogged within 1 week of use and I was told to clean out with cotton buds as this happens! still spat all dust etc out onto the carrpet. After 3 phone calls and an e mail, 6 weeks later I still haven't been able to use it, despite cleaning out the entire machine and 'rodding' the hose with the end of broom, as I was told to do. NEVER buy this dreadful product. I've had to buy a Dyson, just so I have a hoover to use and what a difference. It's definately worth spending more… Read Full Review

it is a very heavy hoover not recommeded for older people as my mum finds it hard work to use she is in her 60's. it picks up well, bulb at the front went within weeks phoned and told they would send a new one waited months for replacement! the worst thing about it is at the front on the cover over belt section the plastic is clear where you can see a build up of dust and dirt, which there is no way of getting to, to remove . i have rang and they told me to use a long handed paint brush which… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/03/2010

Whilst this product claims no loss of suction ever, I have found that it has actually lost its suction, its not as good as it was new. I have used the product for 2 years now, about 3 time a week. It is very heavy and hard to push around when on flat carpet setting, but doesn't pick up well if on a higher carpet setting. The bulb went within 6 months, the turbo tool broke and it is a lot of messing about to use the hose extender. I wouldn't recommend it… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/12/2009

I would give this hoover a 10/10 for suction-as it picks up animal hair,my old hoover wouldnt pick up the hairs.
10/10 for style-as it is very stylish and modern.
09/10 for weight-is not to heavy.
10/10 easy to empty-really liked this as it was very easy to open and easy to remove and put the bagless cylinder back.
10/10 for noise-as this is really quiet.

Written on: 09/12/2009 by astra39 (1 review written)

I was brought the Vax Mach 6 by my partner as i hated my dyson so much when it very first come out on the market.
Was easy to build and istrustions were very easy too follow.
I like the idea of the height adjustment on the handle. I do find the Vax Mach 6 heavy but never had any problems with using the machine. The on board tools are good too, was slightly disappointed that the extended hose couldnt be stored on board.The suction on this hoover is very good.I use it on carpeted floors and on… Read Full Review

“The vacuum should be avoided. It's very heavy, even...”

Written on: 26/11/2009

The vacuum should be avoided. It's very heavy, even for an upright. The hose extension is far too short, althought the range of tools is good.

The worse thing about the vacuum is its life. I recently sent mine back (under the 6 year warranty) for them to replace the motor (it had burnt out).

They sent it back with a new motor, however they never connected the belt which causes the brush to spin. I looked at the belt to notice it was damaged. They sent out new belts, however the rubber… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/11/2009 by scrapper123 (1 review written)

Do yourself a favour, and keep well away from this or indeed any vax product. This machine is really heavy, It does not do what it says on the tin, the 6 year guarantee aint worth the paper it's written on. Absolute rubbish. The story is as follows. 2 weeks after taking delivery, I was moving the machine from the Kitchen Lino to the sitting room carpet. This was a matter of perhaps 2 feet. The damn thing chewed my vinyl up and spat it out, leaving it looking as though a dinasour had been… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/10/2009 by kevspearson (2 reviews written)

I have just received a new vax air mach, my first impressions are really good.

The machine looks really good quality and feels strongly built.

You get everything in the box that you need and it comes with a six year guarantee which would solve any problems.

Hi everyone this is my review after using the hoover -

The hoover is the lightest i have used and it is easy to move about and this doesn't affect the pickup.

I left the room all week to give it a good test and it picked up everything… Read Full Review

Absolutely the worst machine I have ever had. Tried several makes over the years and vax seem to give the most problems along with dyson. Customer service not that heavy and the 6 year guarentee is not as straight forward as you may think… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/05/2009 by bluekitty (1 review written)

I bought the Vax Mach 6 on 17.5.09 in replace of my 1500 watt Sanyo hoover. I have 2 cats where their loose hair grips my bedroom carpet like velcro. Sanyo couldn't pick up these hairs, even when using the tools on the Sanyo it was a nightmare to shift the cat hairs. Mach 6 does this no problem and does better edge cleaning than my old hoover… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/04/2009

I bought tis vacuum as it was on special offer but was very disappointed and frustrated with it. Very heavy, difficult to manouver. Beware, there is a design fault on this vacuum, the belt slips off every time you go over a large bump in the rug, you then have to take it apart and put it back on. I got so fed up with this that I took it back to the supermarket I bought it from and got my money back… Read Full Review

“Well one thing first: the Vax Mach 6 is VERY heavy!...”

Written on: 22/10/2008 by me30 (1 review written)

Well one thing first: the Vax Mach 6 is VERY heavy! Also, belts on mine need replacing every couple of weeks and at a cost of £12 for 2 is very expensive. They are also incredibly difficult to replace. I only used mine for 6 months i have now replaced it with a much nicer model and make! Customer services were often not helpful.
Please not that they offer a 6 year garentee but please read the small print!
It says that if you have any problems they will send a big bag in the post to you then… Read Full Review
