*Edit: Bit confused about the tools that come supplied with these Refurbished 32V Vax models from Direct Vacuums - see post here to see the accessories my sister received with her Vax Cordless TBT3V1P2 Ultra.
Actually better than expected! No User Manual, though, added a .pdf link below*


Only a few of these left. Yes, I know, I have posted about this seller a few times recently. My sister has been obsessively reading about cordless vacs and she tells me the higher the voltage, the more powerful and has a longer run-time - this is 32V. I have little knowledge or experience of cordless vacs!

Just don't. We got this when it came out and it's a total waste of money. Do some research and buy something else. Our old Black and Decker 18v dustbuster wipes the floor with it in every single way.

It's heavy, doesn't seem to actually do what you need it to, too weak and bulky to do the car. Once the attachments are on you lose even more suction. The dust collection bin is tiny because 90% of it is taken up by the filter.

Decent battery though.

This article might give some ideas, though I don't think any of them are £150. I'd go for Shark, but I have no experience of their cordless vacuums.
Direct Vacuums seem to have re-stocked the TBT3V1B1 - was only a few left of each listing when I posted this Deal this morning.

Sis went for the Ultra TBT3V1P2 (she refused delivery of the 24V version today after I found this 32V model - Direct Vacuums said that would be okay). Will update when she's tried it - posted today via Yodel 24 so she should get it tomorrow.

She has her heart set on the 40V Blade 2, maybe in the future.

I have one and would not buy again, Dyson are brilliant
Dyson too expensive
Got one, It's not as bad as some people say. The run time is nowhere near 45 minutes if you use the turbo suction and motorised brushhead, but it's still good for a full run round a level of the house. Quite frankly, no cordless vacuum cleaner is anywhere near as good as a mains powered one. Anyone thinking of getting one to replace a 240 volt cleaner is going to be disappointed.
I've had the pro model for about six months now and love it. I have a eufy robovac that takes care of upstairs and the lounge (when i can be bothered to bring it downstairs) so this gets a run-out once a week to do the stairs, downstairs hall, kitchen and dining room. Prefer using it to our old plug-in dyson, in point of fact. Also, unlike the cordless dyson, you don't have to continually hold the on button to make it work...

We have one and would buy again,mains vacuum hardly used now.Only ever had one Dyson and gave that away as it was useless.
Good to hear a few positives, was beginning to think my sister had bought a donkey! Her Ultra is due today. Hopefully no issues with Direct Vacuums or the vac itself.

Direct Vacuums don't spell out which accessories are supplied with the Pro or Ultra models, so I had to search online a bit.
We have had one of these for over a year. Its not that bad in use but the hose in the powerhead is prone to split and isn't replaceable meaning you have to replace the whole powerhead at £40+ Not a great design so would not buy again.
We have this and it's fine for the cheaper price, but wall mount has no where for the tools and emptying is a pain unlike the Blade 2

It;s not bad, we also have the 32v version. Good suction. Had the same issue as above - it's quite fragile in general - and hacked the stretch tool (not using it anyway) and used its hose, to repair the floorhead. Works perfectly.

What’s the difference between the pro and the ultra?

What’s the difference between the pro and the ultra?



The tools - listed above.
Sister has just phoned with her verdict on the 32V. She's really pleased with it and has done the house from top to bottom, she tells me.

Hers arrived without the original box, with all tools, main unit slightly scratched but fine otherwise. Personally I'd be a bit disappointed but it is covered by their Refurbished description. No instructions either, so you'd have to refer to the Vax website for the user guide.

The battery was nearly fully charged and she guesses it's been given a trial but not used that much.

The Blade Ultra TBT3V1P2 user guide is here (pdf)
(Edit: The instruction manual seems to refer to it as the "Slim Vac"?? so maybe it's just a user guide for all Vax cordless models, Slim Vac 22.2V, Blade 24V/32V?)

I wasn't referring to that at all. It's the images of tools I've copy/pasted from the Vax website. As I mentioned, I had to hunt for the information as Direct Vacuums don't make it clear what else is supplied.

Eg,37626947-EZdyf.jpg(+ wall mount)
I'd assume you don't get the User Manual as my sister didn't - seen a few mention on ebay feedback that they haven't had a manual either. But I added the link to that above.

Apologies.

Even the website isn’t that clear. I contacted Vax chat but they said the extra tool was the pet/stair tool but as far as I can tell you get this in both the ultra and the pro

I've asked my sister to send me a picture of the tools supplied with the Ultra.

Edit: She sent me two pictures! I'll just add both, as the lighting isn't great. Actually looks a bit different to what's mentioned on the Vax website, so, colour me confused as well!
37627095-QQJS8.jpg37627095-bE309.jpgI was considering buying her the Vax Pro Tool kit above, looks like she won't need it!

Another Edit: Sis hasn't explained herself well at all. Spoke to her again a few hours ago and she now says her Ultra DIDN'T have the wall mount, and she needs a hose for some accessories. She tried explaining over the phone but I wasn't sure what she meant - she was talking about the up-top tool (pictured top-right) as an example.
