VAX Has Good Vacuum Reviews

Average reviews across all VAX vacuums are good, however average reviews across just VAX's high maximum input power vacuums are unexceptional.

Chart

Quite High Suction Power

The average suction power of similar spec vacuum cleaners that have been around for more than two years is 600W. With a suction power of 800 Watts, the VAX Air Mini has one of the higher suction power amongst comparable spec vacuums of this age.

Chart Edit

Light

Across all the vacuum cleaners of a similar spec and age to the Air Mini the weights range from 5.7g to 110kg, and the average weight is 7.1kg. With a weight of only 4.9 kilograms, the Air Mini is one of the lighter vacuum cleaners that have been on the market for around the same time as the Air Mini amongst vacuum cleaners of this age.

If you don't mind having a heavier weight then you might want to look at the Polti Vaporetto Action[plb_1718656_price] (2.7kg), or the Dirt Devil Factory M3330[plb_2177431_price] (3kg) which also has a higher rating.

Shallow

Does Not Have a Brush Tool

The VAX Air Mini does not have a brush tool, although this is within the context that most of the other vacuums of a similar spec and age to the Air Mini also do not have a brush tool.

There are a number of alternative vacuums which also have a brush tool that you might also want to look at including the VAX U88-W1[plb_2927290_price], the Bestron Puro[plb_2507773_price], or the Princess Royal Jet Vac[plb_635712_price] which also has a higher rating.

Chart Edit

Not Cordless

The Air Mini is not cordless, although this is within the context that most of the other vacuums of a similar age and spec to the Air Mini are also not cordless.

2 Other reasons to consider the VAX Air Mini

Dry Cleaning Type

The cleaning type of this vacuum is Dry, which is typical of many high maximum input power vacuums that came out around the same time as it.

It may also be worth considering one of the other Dry vacuum cleaners currently available including because of it's better review score, the Princess Royal Jet Vac[plb_635712_price], the Bestron Puro[plb_2507773_price], or the Polti C110[plb_2562468_price].

If the cleaning type of this VAX vacuum is not good enough for you then you might also want to look at the Polti Vaporetto Action[plb_1718656_price] (Wet) which also has a higher rating.

Really good suction, but the hose is terrible. Kinks all the time and therefore the task takes twice as long to complete.
