Karen Traviss also wrote “Charging even a nominal fee to replace a brand new faulty item is pretty shabby”.

A few people who purchased it concluded that it was not strong and durable.

Banks said on Amazon “The machine itself is very heavy, which I take as a good thing” in their review of this vacuum cleaner but in spite of that they rated the product as excellent.

Does Not Have a Brush Tool

The VAX V-124A does not have a brush tool, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other vacuums that are a comparable age to the V-124A also do not have a brush tool.

It is worth considering other vacuums which also have a brush tool including the Bosch BCH61840GB[plb_2812836_price], or the AEG AG3013[plb_3019082_price] or the Hoover CH30000[plb_3121061_price].

Poor At Cleaning Pet Hair

One VAX V-124A owner mentioned in their reviews that it was not good at cleaning dog hair. Five years ago Jethro said in their VAX V-124A review on Amazon “To be fair it was doing a good job of sucking up dog hair and the dirty water pot was full of fur”.

Wash and rinse modes
6-year guarantee, easy to use (once you know how)
