We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 84dB noise level vacuums currently available including because of it's better review score, the Dyson DC19T2, the Rowenta Xtrem Power (£214.03), or the Zanussi ZANSC05.

5 Other reasons to consider the VAX Power 7 Pet

Average Operating Radius

At 10.5 meters, the Power 7 Pet has a fairly standard operating radius compared to most of the other vacuum cleaners that have been on the market for a similar time to the Power 7 Pet.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 10.5m operating radius vacuums currently available including the Felix 1 Premium (£204.98), the Airbelt K1 Pet (£168.00), or the Felix 4 Kombi all from Sebo which has better reviews.

If this vacuum operating radius is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the Sebo Automatic X4 Pet (£243.80) (11m), the Miele S8 PureAir (11m), or the Thomas Aqua+ Multi Clean X7 (£297.65) (11m) which also has a higher rating.

Dry Cleaning Type

The cleaning type of this vacuum is Dry, which is the most commonly supported cleaning type on high maximum input power vacuums that were launched around the same time as it.

We compared this vacuum cleaner to all the other Dry vacuum cleaners and we think because of it's better review score, the Princess Royal Jet Vac (£69.05), the Rowenta RH78, and the Dirt Devil Infinity Rebel 50 (£97.07) is also worth considering.

Vacuum cleaners with a better cleaning type that might also be worth considering include the 20570-56 (Wet), or the 21180-56 (Wet) both from Russell Hobbs or the Polti Vaporetto Action (£59.00) (Wet) which also has a higher rating.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 400W suction power vacuum cleaners currently available including because of it's better review score, the Samsung SC8830.

If you would prefer a vacuum with a higher suction power then you might also want to look at the VC21F50UKGC (450W), or the SC21F50HD (450W) both from Samsung or the SINGER SVCB 4527 ECO (420W) which also has a higher rating.
