Portable

A few VAX U89-MA-L owners who purchased it considered that it was easy to move around.

Easy to Empty

A number of VAX U89-MA-L reviewers wrote in their reviews that it was easy to empty. Mrs D. wrote on Amazon in October “The cylinder & filters are very easy to empty & clean” in her review of this vacuum cleaner but even so she scored it 60 out of 100.

Good Brush

One customer who purchased it reckoned that it had a good brush. Mrs H said on Amazon “The turbo brush is excellent and the other tools are easy to attach” and rated the product 80 out of 100.


Design

Poor Product Quality

One VAX U89-MA-L owner who reviewed it reckoned that it was not good quality. Four years ago Puffin Face gave the product a score of 20 out of 100 and mentioned “The product was not fit for purpose and nor is their customer service” in their review of the VAX U89-MA-L.


Weight & Dimensions

Good Size

Several VAX U89-MA-L reviewers who reviewed the product agreed that it was lightweight. Mrs D. wrote on Amazon in October “It's lightweight & powerful especially with the turbo on” in her review of this vacuum cleaner. Mrs H mentioned “It is very lightweight and easy to manoeuvre around the home, On first glance it does not look very powerful.”. Puffin Face said in their review of the VAX U89-MA-L four years ago “I wanted an upright, bagless product that was also lightweight”.

Average Weight

At 5.3 kilograms, the U89-MA-L has a fairly standard weight compared to most of the other vacuums of this age and type.

Other vacuum cleaners with a heavier weight that you might want to look at include the Air Mini Pet C88-AM-P (£106.99) (5.5kg and cheaper), or the Mach Total Air Force U89-MA-T (5.2kg and cheaper) both from VAX or the Bestron Puro (£83.99) (5.4kg and cheaper).

Price

Reasonably Priced

One person who reviewed the VAX U89-MA-L thought it was good value for money. Mrs H said “However, if I had paid the full price I would have been very disappointed that this was not included”.

Packaging Content

Has a Brush Tool

The U89-MA-L has a brush tool. Most of the other high maximum input power vacuums that are a similar age to this vacuum cleaner also have a brush tool.

We compared all the other vacuum cleaners with a brush tool to this vacuum and we think cheaper vacuums such as the VAX Air Mini Pet C88-AM-P (£106.99), and the Miele S381 (£93.48) are also worth considering.

It is worth also looking at other vacuums which also have a brush tool including the Hoover WindTunnel (£100.80).

Power

Quite Low Suction Power

The lowest suction power of vacuum cleaners of this age and type is 170W, the highest is 2,100W, and the average suction power is 430W. At only 200 Watts, the U89-MA-L has a quite low suction power compared to most of the other high maximum input power vacuums that were released more than two years ago.

If this vacuum suction power is too low for you then you might want to consider the Polti VAPORETTO PURE (£125) (1,500W).

What does "suction power" mean? Less Chart Hide Chart Edit

1,200 Watt Maximum Input Power

This is a 1,200 Watt vacuum cleaner.

We compared this vacuum cleaner to all the other 1,200W vacuum cleaners and we think the Numatic HVR200A (£109.98) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this VAX vacuum maximum input power is not high enough for you then you might want to consider the H.Koenig SLC80 (£90.92) (1,600W and cheaper) or the Hoover BH50010 (£124.06) (1,500W and higher rated).
