VAX Has Good Reviews for Its Vacuum Cleaners

VAX has good average reviews across all vacuum cleaners, however it has poor reviews specifically for its high maximum input power vacuum cleaners.

Very Light

The weights of vacuum cleaners of this age and spec range from 1.2kg to 110kg. With a weight of only 4.3 kilograms, the VAX C88-W2- is one of the lighter vacuum cleaners of a similar spec and age to the C88-W2- amongst high maximum input power vacuum cleaners of this age.

Alternative vacuums with a heavier weight that you might want to look at include the Bosch BGL3A122[plb_2474817_price] (4.3kg).

3 Reasons Against

Very Low Suction Power

The C88-W2- has a fairly low suction power (only 280 Watts) compared to most of the other vacuums that came out more than two years ago. Comparable spec vacuum cleaners that were released more than two years ago have suction powers of between 170W and 2,100W, and the average suction power is 440W.

We compared this vacuum to all the other 280W suction power vacuums and we think because of it's better review score, the Dyson DC19[plb_2011092_price] is also worth considering.

Vacuums with a higher suction power that might also be worth looking at include the Polti VAPORETTO PURE[plb_3345045_price] (1,500W).

Not Cordless

Most vacuums of a comparable type and age to the C88-W2- are not cordless. The C88-W2- is no exception to this as it too is not cordless.

Chart Edit

Quite Short Cord Length

The cord lengths of vacuums of this type and age range from 2.1m to 16m. At only 5 meters, the VAX C88-W2- has a fairly short cord length compared to most of the other comparable spec vacuums that are a similar age to the C88-W2-.
