"Lightweight but Flimsy…"
Having previously had good but heavy Dysons I decided to go for a Vac as it was a lot cheaper than the Dyson equivalent, lighter and more powerful. I am impressed with how lightweight it is and it is easy to maneuver. However, the lightness comes at the price of being really quite flimsy in comparison with Dysons. My main grumble is with the pipe, it doesn't fit well both when being used connected to the other ends/connections or when housed in the base of the vacuum cleaner. I almost have to hold it all together to use the pipe element which isn't good. Otherwise its fine.Read moreLess
"Great value & lightweight…"
I have had the Vax Air 3 for 2 weeks now and have put it through a thorough testing. I found the vacuum very easy to use, it is light weight, goes under the furniture with ease and turns a corner with a slight twist (I can't believe how this actually makes such a difference to using a vacuum!). The handle is height adjustable so you can have it to what ever height is comfortable for you, It is a very powerful vacuum and sucks up well also easy to empty.
My only gripe with the Vax Air 3 is that the hose is far too short even though you can attach the vacuum handle on to it is still no where near long enough when doing the skirting or stairs I can only go so far without the vacuum falling over but with it being so light you can carry it along with you.
Included with the vacuum are a 2in1 crevice tool/dusting brush & an upholstery tool - the 2in1 tool I found quite frustrating to use as you have to slide the dusting brush up to the top of the crevice tool and as I was using it, it would just slip down I can see it has been cleverly designed to reduced the space it takes up but could do with perhaps a slight rethink.
Hope this helps in your decision makingRead moreLess
"Really light and manoeuvrable…"
This is a light and powerful vacuum cleaner that does what it says on the tin - all of it really well. It's a simply click to empty - no bag - and you can take it upstairs with ease. Because it pivots you can get in and out of tight corners without lifting it and it's super powerful - ideal for carpets. It looks fabulous as well - all in all a good buy.
