8 Reasons For

Has a Brush Tool

Unlike most of the other similar spec vacuums that came out more than a year ago which do not have a brush tool, the U89-MA-L has a brush tool.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other vacuum cleaners with a brush tool currently available including because of it's better review score, the Miele Classic C1 EcoLine[plb_2959088_price].

There are a number of other vacuum cleaners which also have a brush tool which you might want to look at including the Solac Apollo Cyclonic II[plb_3108114_price].

Portable

A few VAX U89-MA-L owners who purchased it considered that it was easy to move around.

Good Size

Several VAX U89-MA-L reviewers who reviewed the product agreed that it was lightweight. Mrs D. wrote on Amazon in October “It's lightweight & powerful especially with the turbo on” in her review of this vacuum cleaner. Mrs H mentioned “It is very lightweight and easy to manoeuvre around the home, On first glance it does not look very powerful.”. Puffin Face said in their review of the VAX U89-MA-L four years ago “I wanted an upright, bagless product that was also lightweight”.

Easy to Empty

A number of VAX U89-MA-L reviewers wrote in their reviews that it was easy to empty. Mrs D. wrote on Amazon in October “The cylinder & filters are very easy to empty & clean” in her review of this vacuum cleaner but even so she scored it 60 out of 100.

Good Brush

One customer who purchased it reckoned that it had a good brush. Mrs H said on Amazon “The turbo brush is excellent and the other tools are easy to attach” and rated the product 80 out of 100.

Reasonably Priced

One person who reviewed the VAX U89-MA-L thought it was good value for money. Mrs H said “However, if I had paid the full price I would have been very disappointed that this was not included”.

VAX Has Good Reviews for Its Vacuum Cleaners

VAX is one of the better rated vacuum cleaner manufacturers according to average reviews from experts and users, and VAX also has good ratings for its medium maximum input power vacuums.

Quite Long Cord Length

With a cord length of 10 meters, the VAX U89-MA-L has a quite long cord length compared to most of the other comparable spec vacuum cleaners that came out more than a year ago. The shortest cord length of medium maximum input power vacuums that have been around for a similar time to the U89-MA-L is 1.8m and the longest is 16m.

3 Reasons Against

Poor Product Quality

One VAX U89-MA-L owner who reviewed it reckoned that it was not good quality. Four years ago Puffin Face gave the product a score of 20 out of 100 and mentioned “The product was not fit for purpose and nor is their customer service” in their review of the VAX U89-MA-L.

Not Cordless

Most medium maximum input power vacuums that are a similar age to the U89-MA-L are not cordless. The U89-MA-L is no exception to this as it too is not cordless.

Vacuum cleaners which are cordless that might be worth looking at include the VAX Dual Power W86-DP-B[plb_2928155_price] which is also cheaper.

Very Small Dust Capacity

The average dust capacity of medium maximum input power vacuums that have been on the market for a comparable time to the U89-MA-L is 4.3L. At only 1.5 liters, the U89-MA-L has a fairly small dust capacity compared to most of the other vacuums that were released one year ago.

4 Other reasons to consider the VAX U89-MA-L

Dry Cleaning Type

The cleaning type of this vacuum is Dry, which is typical of many similar spec vacuum cleaners that are a comparable age to it.

If the cleaning type of this vacuum is too bad for you then you might want to consider the Powermax VRS20W[pl_2928151_price] (Wet), or the Dual Power W86-DP-B[pl_2928155_price] (Wet) both from VAX which is also cheaper.

Average Weight

At 5.3 kilograms, the U89-MA-L has a fairly average weight compared to most of the other vacuum cleaners of this age and spec.

Vacuums with a heavier weight that might be worth considering include the DSU 12[pl_2958918_price] (5.5kg and cheaper), or the DSU 10[pl_3099947_price] (5.2kg and cheaper) both from Viper or the VAX Dual Power W86-DP-B[plb_2928155_price] (5.8kg and cheaper).
