Vax Astrata Vacuum Cleaner

AdvantagesSturdy metal poles that can be adjusted

DisadvantagesEasily clogged filters, Extremely unhygienic method needed to empty dust collection, Heavy

"Vax Astrata Vacuum Cleaner After a battling for 18 months with a bagged upright Hoover vacuum cleaner, that my Mum had given me, I decided it was time for something a bit more modern. I live in a 3 bed semi with my partner and 2 cats so I needed something substantial but nothing overly flash!

Ruined by poor accessories.

AdvantagesGood level of suction, provided the filters are cleaned often.

DisadvantagesVery poor accessories. Messy to keep filters clean.

"I have the V-064TB version of this cleaner. The TB is for TurboBrush. This is a machine with a good level of power that is ruined by poor accessories. I've found the suction good so long as the filter is cleaned regularly. It has never cut out on me unlike the other reviews. This is my first bagless machine.It is easy to empty although it needs emptying pretty frequently. The capacity is much less than it may first appear as the full level ..." Read review

What a load of rubbish

AdvantagesNo Bag, max & min suction option. cord retraction button

DisadvantagesMotor Cuts out very quickly, overheats, quite heavy

"Bought this last year, also bought one for my mum. The motor overheats very quickly and it just cuts out, have to wait an hour for it to work again. I cant even finish the stairs without it cutting out and my mums is just the same. I either purchased a faulty batch or it just cant handle carpets which take a while to vaccum. I wouldnt recommend at all. Very disappointed. There is no bag and emptying is quite easy and striaghtforward. The cord ..." Read review
