Vax Power vacuum cleaners

The Power range of bagless cylinders and upright vacuum cleaners are designed to deliver ‘powerful, effective cleaning performance for busy families,’ according to Vax. 

There's also a limited 'scent of summer' edition of the Vax 6131 multifunctional vac and carpet cleaner. 

Which? vacuum cleaner expert Vivienne Fitzroy says: ‘We’ve tested the Vax Power 5 upright and the Vax 6131 multifunctional carpet cleaner but neither impressed in our tests. This feature will certainly appeal to some, but we’re not sure it would make up for some of the poor results we’ve seen in our tests.’
