"Vax 6131 - Multifunctional to the max!"

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 all the findings from your household stuck inside the tubing!

In the box
Vax 6131 vacuum cleaner
Combi head
Fibreflow head
Bottle Carpet Cleaning Solution
2pc Stainless steel extension tubes
Crevice tool
Upholstery tool

The first thing that strikes you about this is BIG! - It is a large unit in a bold colour (unfortunatly orange is the only colour variation). Once out of the box, assemble as instructed in the included manual and turn it on, another word hits you - LOUD!; these things will clean over just about any carpet surface but your ears will hate you!

All the included tools come in very handy, the only down point I find is lack of storage, it would be nice if I could carry them all around with me as I go...

Now not only is this a vacuum cleaner, it is also washes carpets with the aid of the supplied solution (more is available from most high street vacuum cleaner stockists and even some Tesco stores) and will suck up spills such as spilt drinks on lamiate flooring, overflowing water from sinks and even flooded washing machines! (believe me, all this has happened!)

I was actually amazed at how well this thing works as a carpet cleaner, it took around 15 minuts to get into all the areas of the room and to make sure I applied enough solution. Once dried it smelt and looked brand new! - No more hassle from the missus who constantly bangs on about new carpets every 2 years!

A final plus is that it works very well to clean out the car, especially with the aid of all the added tools you receive in the box.

Overall the best way to describe it is a jack of all trades, but a master of none - everything works very well but not quite as good as a stand alone vacuum/carpet washer etc... - You get what you pay for

Final score - 8/10

Other noteable options for under £100
Numatic Henry HVR200A - £89.99
Bosch BSGL4000GB - £99.99
Vax VZL-7071P - £99.99

All the above products are owned by friends or family members of mine and have received the thumbs up!

Summary: 8/10 - Jack of all trades, master of none
