Has a Brush Tool

The Mach 8 C88-M8-B has a brush tool. Most of the other vacuum cleaners of a similar age and type to this vacuum cleaner also have a brush tool.

We compared this vacuum cleaner to all the other vacuum cleaners with a brush tool and we think the Princess Royal Jet Vac, the Bestron Optimo, and the Kawasaki K-VCW 1250-20L which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Very Low Suction Power

The lowest suction power of vacuums of this age and spec is 170W, the highest is 2,100W, and the average suction power is 430W. With a suction power of only 250 Watts, the VAX Mach 8 C88-M8-B has one of the lower suction powers amongst high maximum input power vacuum cleaners of this age.

Other 250W suction power vacuums currently available which you might want to look at include the Dirt Devil Infinity Rebel 50, the Grundig VCC 6270, or the Necchi NH9058 which has better reviews.

If this vacuum suction power is too low for you then you might also want to consider the Numatic HVR200A (£99.00) (600W), the Rowenta RH7921WF (750W), or the Polti VAPORETTO PURE (1,500W) which is also higher rated.

Weight & Dimensions

Not Good in Terms of Size

One VAX Mach 8 C88-M8-B reviewer who reviewed it thought it was not heavy and bulky. H. Ali wrote on Amazon “It is heavy, cumbersome and hard to store” in their review.

Average Weight

At 5.5 kilograms, the VAX Mach 8 C88-M8-B has a fairly standard weight compared to most of the other vacuum cleaners that have been on the market for more than two years.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 5.5kg heavy vacuums currently available including the VAX Air Mini Pet C88-AM-P (£99.98), the Nilfisk Buddy II 18T (£94.29), or the Bestron ABG400SGE (£56.99) which has better reviews.
