4 Reasons For

Has a Brush Tool

The Mach 8 C88-M8-B has a brush tool, which is unusual. Most of the other high maximum input power vacuum cleaners that were released around the same time as the Mach 8 C88-M8-B do not have a brush tool.

Other vacuums with a brush tool currently available which you might want to consider include the Electrolux ZS320A[plb_3192890_price], or the Hoover UTP1611[plb_3178207_price] which has better reviews.

Good Suction

One VAX Mach 8 C88-M8-B owner said that it had good suction. In October this year Nic wrote on Amazon “Suction is top! No faults, been going years”.

Dry Cleaning Type

The cleaning type of this vacuum is Dry, which is the most commonly supported cleaning type on vacuum cleaners of this spec and age.

There are a number of other Dry vacuums currently available that you might want to look at including the Complete C2[pl_2437162_price], or the Dynamic U1 PowerLine[pl_2938540_price] both from Miele or the Philips FC9193/91[plb_3028694_price] which has better reviews.

Good Brand

Based on 4,882 expert and user reviews, VAX has good reviews for its vacuums. However, VAX has poor reviews for its high maximum input power vacuum cleaners compared to high maximum input power vacuum cleaners made by other brands.

4 Reasons Against

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.

Not Cordless

The Mach 8 C88-M8-B is not cordless, although keep in mind that most of the other vacuums that have been around for more than a year are also not cordless.

If you would prefer a vacuum cleaner that is cordless then you might also want to look at the Rowenta Air Force Extreme 24V[plb_2953061_price], or the Nilfisk 302003407[plb_2988098_price] which is also higher rated.

Very Small Dust Capacity

High maximum input power vacuum cleaners that were launched more than a year ago have dust capacitys of between 0.25L and 70L. The Mach 8 C88-M8-B has one of the smaller dust capacitys (only 1.6 liters) amongst comparable spec vacuums of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Short Cord Length

With a cord length of only 5 meters, the Mach 8 C88-M8-B has one of the shorter cord lengths amongst high maximum input power vacuum cleaners of this age. High maximum input power vacuum cleaners that have been on the market for more than a year have cord lengths of between 4m and 12m, and the average cord length is 6.5m.

3 Other reasons to consider the VAX Mach 8 C88-M8-B

Average Weight

At 5.5 kilograms, the Mach 8 C88-M8-B has a pretty average weight compared to most of the other vacuums of this age and type.

We compared all the other 5.5kg heavy vacuum cleaners to this vacuum and we think because of it's better review score, the VAX Mach 8 C87-M8-B[plb_2928094_price], and the Samsung VC15F50[plb_2551975_price] is also worth considering.

Vacuum cleaners with a heavier weight that might also be worth looking at include the Kärcher MV 3[plb_2851079_price] (5.5kg).

Released Over a Year Ago

It was over a year ago when this VAX vacuum was released.

Average Suction Power

At 250 Watts, the Mach 8 C88-M8-B has a fairly standard suction power compared to most of the other vacuum cleaners that are a comparable age to the Mach 8 C88-M8-B.

There are a number of other 250W suction power vacuum cleaners currently available which you might want to look at including because of it's better review score, the Zanussi ZAN7802EL[plb_2824251_price], or the VAX Mach 8 C87-M8-B[plb_2928094_price].

If this vacuum suction power is not high enough for you then you might also want to consider the C88-W1-B[pl_2928095_price] (260W), or the Zoom Pets U87-ZM-P[pl_2928140_price] (270W) both from VAX or the Samsung SC45S0[plb_3097311_price] (330W) which also has a higher rating.

Reviewed 26 July 2015 by Douglas Sneddon

This is the best small hoover I have had so far. Does the job without fuss and is easy to clean and maintain. Lots of suction and the tools are good.

This is probably the worst vacuum I have ever owned. It is heavy, cumbersome and hard to store. If you want a mega work out when hoovering then this is for you. It is awful...
