An oldie but still a goodie!

AdvantagesVery good cleaning ability. Not too tough to use once you've figured it out.

DisadvantagesHeavy and bulky. Not worth it as a vacuum cleaner only.

"...carpet cleaner, that being the VAX 6131. Now I know that this particular model is now quite old but just because something is old, doesnít make it rubbish, and in testament to this, it is still available online on websites such as Amazon, costing around £80 new. Vax themselves have a good reputation in the carpet cleaning and vacuuming industry, and that was the main reason my parents decided to buy this many years ago, and why I chose to half-inch ..."

The Fantastic Bright Orange Cleaning Machine! WOW

AdvantagesSuper at cleaning, Powerful, Easy to use, Reliable

DisadvantagesNone really, a bit noisey but thats it!

"...me, knowing it was a Vax I went to buy it straightaway as I had owned one like it in the older house andd thought it was good! But this is a newer version so I knew deep down that it would be better. The cost 139 Pounds - Quite pricey! But worth it. Includes a year gaurantee also, vax comes to your house and fixes it if something goes wrong, I doubt it would go wrong though. But...... What is a VAX....??? Well a VAX is a fantastic multifunctional ..." Read review

No more stains

AdvantagesCleans and washes well

Disadvantagesnone

"...I decided to get the Vax 3 in 1 as this is a brand name that has been around for years. THE PRICE The Vax machie is retailing in Argos at £129.99, although the original price is £159.99, I'm not sure how long this offer will be on for. As always this item could maybe be available elsewhere at a cheaper price, so shop about! This cleaner is quite big and heavy and as always comes in the usual cardboard packaging. GADGETS SUPPLIED Once the cleaner ..." Read review

For a cleaner world...

AdvantagesIt's three in one!

DisadvantagesBut a bit fiddly to set up for shampooing

"...orange, it must be a Vax 3-in-1. 3-in-1? ~~~~~~ What is this 3-in-1 business then? Simply put, this machine will handle wet or dry vacuuming and also serves as a carpet cleaner. Since most of us shampoo our carpets infrequently (letís be honest), having a dedicated cleaner is really dead money. This is why rental of carpet cleaners is still a thriving business (on the other hand, when was the last time anyone rented a vacuum by the day?). Combining ..." Read review

Vax the way to do it!

AdvantagesSimple to use, inexpensive, great results

DisadvantagesBulky, heavy machine, difficult to store neatly

"I bought my Vax 6131 back in October 2007 after my old upright vacuum cleaner finally gave up the ghost. I was searching for a new replacement upright vacuum cleaner but after stumbling across the Vax 6131 on special offer I decided a wet and dry vacuum that also shampoos carpets would be really handy, especially with a dog and cat in the house! The Vax 6131 is a cylinder or canister vacuum cleaner that as well as being used as an ordinary dry ..." Read review

Didn't Vaxes used to be computers?

AdvantagesWell made, good at what it does

Disadvantageslarge, heavy, noisy

"Vax 6131 three in one cleaner We live in a small cottage which has beams and is over 200 years old. Anyone who has lived in such a property will tell you that dust and cobwebs are an occupational hazard. As it is small we bought one of those compact bagless cleaners which turned out to be a real pain in the derriere, it would fall over rather than be dragged around, the capacity was laughable and the bits would fall out of the cupboard every time ..."

Vax 6130

AdvantagesIt cleans well, good suction

Disadvantagesdoesn't sit on the stairs! It has bags

"...orange, get your sunglasses out, Vax carpet cleaning system. I am now on my second one having bought my first when they were the state of the art vacuum cleaner and launched into the shops some twenty years ago. Now, donít get me wrong, I am not an obsessive cleaner, but we currently own three hoovers. Interestingly, none of them are actually made by Hoover! When we moved here my Vax gave up the ghost after years of sterling service. It was ..." Read review

RELIABLE HOOVER

Advantagessee review

Disadvantagessee review

"...think it is the 2nd Vax that we have had since myself and my husband started to live together all those years ago. I am not allowed to do the Hoovering at home as hubby decided that I wasn't any good at it. I don't take that as an insult, it's a lucky escape from having to do it, and I think the way I Hoover he is probably right - I just aim the brush at random bits. Since he was small he used to help his mum with the Hoovering so this is "his job". ..." Read review

Sucker

AdvantagesPowerful well made machine

DisadvantagesThe cost for replacement filters and bags is very expensive.

"...be if you purchased a Vax Rapid + 5140 blindly. Firstly I want you to know, I'm not mocking this excellent canister vacuum cleaner. With it's powerful 1400 watt motor and ability to wash and dry carpets and upholstery, it's more than a match for all those cat and dog hair's, not to mention the whiff they leave behind, You can even use it to suck up water and unblocking drains. The Vax itself is a great product which I would recommend to anyone, ..." Read review

BIG MEAN ORANGE VACUUMING MACHINE. Review with images

Advantagesgreat suction and cleaning power

Disadvantagesquite difficult to store when you have limited space

"I purchased the Vax 6131 when my old vacuum broke . I was drawn to it because it had the cleaning capabilities and vacuum at a very reasonable price, I paid £69.99, but I have noticed that recently the price has risen to around £85.00 which is still not bad. I was dubious of the fact it was a bagged vacuum and also it seemed a little too cheap considering its capabilities. It retains its 1300 watt powerful suction constantly, even as the bag fills, ..."

Ever faithful floor and carpet cleaner!

AdvantagesMulti-pupose machine

Disadvantagesa little noisy

"Last year my old Vax machine broke after 25 years of heavy usage. I have a variety of floor coverings from wooden panels, tiles to carpet and it never failed on any surface. I replaced it with the 6131 a few months ago and the quality is still as good as its predecessor if not better. I like the way I can use it wet or dry which is particularly useful when you have pets. I never need to spend huge amounts on hiring carpet shampoo machines and ..." Read review

Vax 6131 - Multifunctional to the max!

AdvantagesMany many uses, very well built

DisadvantagesNoisy, bulky to carry around the house and up stairs

"It seems this vacuum cleaner has been around for decades! - I remember having this when I was 5 or 6 years old and my mom and dad still sware by it now! This product goes to show that quality lasts, the shear fact that have still kept the same specifications and feel to the product is testament to a brilliant around the house vacuum cleaner, never again will you be red faced as you have to return your 6 month old £60 Argos special complete with ..."

It does what it says on the box - it cleans well!!!

Advantagesaffordable, cleans well, easy to use

Disadvantagesbit bulky and heavy to keep moving from room to room

"...happy with them, but my vax is literally my saviour. I honestly do not know where I would be without it. I brought my Vax from homebase, just over a year ago, and I brought it because it was on special offer (I think it was in a clearance section after xmas). At first I thought it was pricey, even for a reduced model, but now I know why it was more than similar (yet cheaper) models. With this carpet cleaner I am truly getting very good value for money.
