8 Reasons For

Has a Brush Tool

Unlike most of the other vacuums of a comparable spec and age to the U89-MA-L which do not have a brush tool, the U89-MA-L has a brush tool.

It is worth considering alternative vacuums which also have a brush tool including the Rowenta RO52[plb_2449258_price].

Portable

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

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”.

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.

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”.

VAX Has Good Reviews for Its Vacuums

VAX medium maximum input power vacuums have good reviews on average and across all vacuum cleaners VAX is one of the better rated brands.

Chart

Fairly Long Cord Length

At 10 meters, the VAX U89-MA-L has a fairly long cord length compared to most of the other vacuums that are a comparable age to the U89-MA-L. The cord lengths of vacuums of this spec and age range from 1.8m to 16m, and the average cord length is 7.3m.

4 Reasons Against

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.

Very Low Suction Power

The suction powers of vacuums of a comparable type and age to the U89-MA-L range from 78W to 1,200W, and the average suction power is 360W. At only 200 Watts, the U89-MA-L has a fairly low suction power compared to most of the other medium maximum input power vacuums that are a comparable age to the U89-MA-L.

We compared all the other 200W suction power vacuums to this vacuum and we think the Nilfisk VP300[plb_2287738_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Not Cordless

The U89-MA-L is not cordless, although keep in mind that most of the other vacuums of this age and type are also not cordless.

Chart Edit

Very Small Dust Capacity

At only 1.5 liters, the VAX U89-MA-L has a fairly small dust capacity compared to most of the other medium maximum input power vacuums that have been available for around the same time as the U89-MA-L. The dust capacitys of vacuum cleaners of this type and age range from 0.5L to 32L, and the average dust capacity is 5.9L.

3 Other reasons to consider the VAX U89-MA-L

Dry Cleaning Type

The cleaning type of this vacuum cleaner is Dry, which is typical of many vacuums that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other Dry vacuum cleaners currently available including the Nilfisk VP300[plb_2287738_price], or the Philips FC932[plb_2376948_price] which is cheaper; or the Numatic NRV200[plb_2286351_price] which has better reviews.

Average Weight

At 5.3 kilograms, the U89-MA-L has a relatively typical weight compared to most of the other vacuums of this age and spec.

If you would consider a vacuum cleaner with a heavier weight then you might want to look at the Nilfisk VP300[plb_2287738_price] (5.2kg and cheaper).
