Vax AWC02 Power 3 Pet Bagless Cylinder Vacuum Cleaner - £59.99 @ Argos

Found 5th May 2016
Just browsing for a decent quality lightweight vacuum cleaner, mainly for our staircase and the odd laminate vacuuming, also needed to pick up cat hair well, and found this. According to reviews it seems very powerful, too powerful for some users, but has a good sized 2.2 litre bin, a HEPA filter and a Turbo Tool for catching the hairs and stubborn dirt.

At £60 instead of £110 this seemed like a good offer so thought I would share

Just a warning for anyone thinking about this vacuum, dont waste your money, i bought this for £80 and got about 3 decent months out of it before it stopped sucking up anything despite cleaning filters and doing all i could do, ended up selling and buying a dyson...honestly stay away from this

So, based on your experience everyone should avoid this??
Did it work ok for the first 3 months?
Did it have a warranty /gurantee?

Thanks for letting us know It should come with a 2 year guarantee from new?

I think ill still give this one a go though as I notice the odd user from almost every vacuum cleaner I've looked at state that theirs stops working after a while. The reviews seem good from what I can see. And I don't have the budget for a Dyson, nor do I want one at the moment as this won't get used every single day.
It did come with a guarantee but it was pretty long winded trying to get them to sort it out, i had various conversations with them, we couldn't work out what was wrong with it but my feeling was that even had they replaced it the same issues would have continued after a month or 2 with a new one so i decided to go for something else...Initally i work great and the pet hair attachment was amazing but that stopped working and even when cleaned out completely never had the same suction, also it would have to be emptied after about 2 or 3 uses otherwise it would become clogged up

Personally even if you dont have money for a dyson i would suggest something else
I had problems with suction with one of these. Even after cleaning filters was the same, so I took it apart and there's a tube in the centre that had lots of fluff blocking the holes in it. Cleaned it off and now sucks like new. I know you shouldn't have to do this, but it works
Now £69.99
