Why Has it Scored 77?

VAX is an excellent vacuum brand.
It is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer, better vacuums are available.
This vacuum cleaner has running costs of £220 over 10 years, which puts it in the cheapest 9% of all 1,700+ vacuums that we have calculated running costs for.
It has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Has a washable filter
Cordless
Very small capacity

What is the Kagoo Score?

We calculate the Kagoo Score for each vacuum cleaner by looking at its reviews, features, popularity, age, value for money and running costs.

The Kagoo Score is an easy way to understand whether the vacuum cleaner is recommended.

The Kagoo Scores are constantly being updated. As newer, higher spec vacuum cleaners come to market, the older vacuum cleaners will gradually have their Kagoo Score reduced.
