3 Reasons For

Has a Brush Tool

The VAX U88-W1 has a brush tool. Most of the other vacuums of a comparable age and type to the U88-W1 do not have a brush tool.

There are a number of other vacuums which also have a brush tool that you might also want to consider including the Bestron Puro[plb_2507773_price], or the Princess Royal Jet Vac[plb_635712_price].

Good Brand

We analysed average ratings for each vacuum brand and found that whilst VAX has good average reviews across all vacuums, VAX has unexceptional reviews specifically within its high maximum input power vacuums range.

Light

At only 4.7 kilograms, the VAX U88-W1 is fairly light compared to most of the other high maximum input power vacuums that have been around for around the same time as the U88-W1. Across all the high maximum input power vacuums that are a comparable age to the U88-W1 the weights range from 5.7g to 110kg, and the average weight is 7.1kg.

If you would consider a vacuum with a heavier weight then you might want to look at the Hoover Steam Express 2-in-1 S2IN1300[plb_2665909_price] (2.9kg), the Dirt Devil Factory M3330[plb_2177431_price] (3kg), or the Polti C110[plb_2562468_price] (4.9kg).

2 Reasons Against

Very Low Suction Power

The average suction power of high maximum input power vacuums that were launched around the same time as the U88-W1 is 600W. The VAX U88-W1 has a fairly low suction power (only 210 Watts) compared to most of the other high maximum input power vacuums that have been available for a similar time to the U88-W1.

Chart Edit

Not Cordless

Like most of the other vacuums that have been on the market for around the same time as the U88-W1, the VAX U88-W1 is not cordless.

Vacuum cleaners which are cordless that might also be worth considering include the Dirt Devil Factory M3330[plb_2177431_price].

2 Other reasons to consider the VAX U88-W1

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 have been available for more than two years.

If you would prefer a vacuum with a better cleaning type then you might also want to look at the Polti Vaporetto Action[plb_1718656_price] (Wet) which is also cheaper.
