Their prices are amazing though. One of the vacuum which they sent was in like new. I found the ebay shop was better though as you could initiate the returns process youself. The actual website requires you to email them for an RMA no but they don't reply to emails anyway!
Exactly, i have no clue how they are even still trading, especially after i read so many comments after i purchased that this seems the norm for this company! good old trading standards are useless, and this firm knows it!
I've ordered from their ebay shop & directly from their website, both vacuums that I received were different from what I had ordered! They'll only respond to one email a day, even if you reply to them within minutes of their email. Last time I tried, their phone number was going to voicemail.
After being sent a hoover made up of different hoovers, mine wasnt new as should of been! Absolute nightmare getting a refund, until Bank sorted it out, so unless you want to waste 8-10 hours of your life, id avoid this company at all costs!! never again........
Bought one. Condition isn't immaculate but for the price it's good
Hi, have you received it / used it yet? Any good?
It's mostly battery life, suction and then design. Add on a few gimmicks. Personally I would get a robot vacuum such as a roborock and then a medium powered cordless to do quick cleans or any missed spots.
Just bought. Back in stock.

I got this model a few weeks back for the same price off Amazon. It replaced a Tineco and where this isn't so sophisticated it has far better suction. The battery lasts a while (40 mins) and I believe for £250 you can get the dual battery version of this. It's heavy though because the battery is so big. I like that you can turn the head on and off and when pushing it the head rolls anyway so on the kitchen floor no need to swap heads as it brushes up the bigger bits. For the price this is brilliant. Heat :-)
Do cordless vacuum cleaners have a good enough suction? I’m trying to decide between this and the Miele C2 deal that was posted a week ago. I live in a 2 bed flat with mainly carpet flooring if that makes a difference.
Maybe VAX has changed their ways but I'v had poor experiences with their budget models. breaking belts etc. Got a corded dyson from their outlet a few years ago and it hasn't needed any repair or lost any sunctiion as far as I can tell
I got refurbished one (from VAX on ebay, they only come with 1 year warranty) for £139 after the Batteries on my old Blade 2 max only lasted 10mins and has an issue with one of the wheels (it about 3 years old and we got it free from a 5 years old stand up battery vax hover that failed on us but was still under warranty) I cannot notice anything diffrence between the 2 apart from the changeable battery (all parts fit each other machine) The only issue I would say is the Batteries charger for this Blade 4 is designed wrong as you cannot wall mount it duo to where the cables comes out :( a refubised one on ebay (from VAX) is £179.99 (but only comes with 1 years warranty. where i beleve a new one comes with 2 years)
This looks good. Great reviews online. Need a new vaccum so going to order. Thanks op.
https://www.vax.co.uk/onepwr-blade-4-vacuum-cleaner?gclid=CjwKCAjwvMqDBhB8EiwA2iSmPEDZ4AWIM_fVYp_ARUU14VMQ_1oGgwhlmH6Th3KZeTQO-RMXcBrfOBoCD1gQAvD_BwE Not sure what the extra kit is and it has the one battery. Linked above if anyone wants a look. (y)
I had a look at the blade 4 on the ebay outlet store and it is currently £119 for a refurbished one or £179 for a pet refurbished one with a one year guarantee. On the Vax website they are selling a new blade 4 pet model with £50 of extra tools and a 3 year warranty on the cleaner and battery for £199. The new one is better value at this time I think.
Bought a vax 3 on eBay site very impressed and only £70!
Same here, got one for my mother in law from Vax on Ebay and genuinely think I'll replace my Dyson V8 with a Vax when I next change. Really like that you can turn the spinning head off to allow it to glide over hard floor and not need to change the head
Voted hot, great price. Recently bought a refurbished one from Vax's ebay store, really pleased with it - highly recommended
If you have any stairs get one with a handheld attachment. We have one that is like this, and it can’t do them at all. I regret buying it.
Thank you kindly.
I have a Bissel stain pro 6, which has a detachable hose. I paid £169 when it was on offer last year. Very good machine. Highly recommended. https://ao.com/product/20096-bissell-stain-pro-6-carpet-cleaner-titanium-55982-91.aspx
Is this worth buying, or rent a rugdoctor? I've never carpet cleaned my house, I think it needs a deep clean.
As per the experience of several others here, I managed to wash my patio one and a half times before my one carcked it. I returned it as a bare unit and they have said they are going to refund rather than repair. So I now have hose, lance's and patio kit - anyone know if these will fit another brand of washer?
My Nilfisk D140 has just let me down on its third use. Cut out in seconds after switching on through extension lead. Plugged in directly (no extension lead, still dead). Think it might be a fuse and swap plug fuses with the kettle- kettle works, D140 doesn't - not the fuse. 5 mins later it starts working for a very small job (jetting the car's rubber mats). In the meantime our surround amp in the living room has switched itself off twice and the kitchen lights flicker a bit. Unplugged and I get a residual shock from the plug pins after its unplugged. It's going back to Costco. Any ideas for a better one without spending a fortune?
Mine came the other day, 50% of the box was wet through but didn't notice any damage. Soon as I connected it up and turned the tap on the infeed connector snapped in half, will contact vax later for replacement. Luckily my garden tap adapt was the same size as the infeed and got it going. Seems to work well, the turbo attachment was strong enough to strip the old stain of the decking and the paving attachment cleaned the decking really well.
Same, received today with broken water inlet. Contacted VAX for replacement.
Mine just arrived.next day, inlet water Hose connector on the back was snapped.got back on to them said they will send one out ,use it over the w/end works ok at the min
Just missed out on one of these, had my order refunded.
Thanks, I was just about to buy the Ryobi pressure washer from Amazon. It looks like I bought the last one. Thanks again, we will see what it is like on the Patio.
If you connect a normal spray gun to the end of the hose that you plug in the machine does water come out OK. I had a situation once where I had the inlet and out connectors the wrong way around so no flow. Normally arrows show flow direction on connectors
I have the 2200w version, and I use a Autoglym Polar Blaster, which I would highly recommend. You'll need to buy an adaptor off eBay for a few quid.
Mine is out of warrenty problem is no water comes out i hear normal noise as if its working

Mine was dead on arrival. Back she goes.
Got few to see what they are like and it isn't to bad. Looks like the 130 they had in stock were ex demo's from Vax. Looked brand new but noticed Vax's hard to find demo sticker on it they are still putting it in the same place they did years ago LOL.
LOL did you look at the pictures ?? (y)
Ah brilliant thanks for that! Enjoy

Thanks for posting, ordered a TBT3V1P2 for 89.99. Well impressed, it looks new and performs better than my mains Dyson (highfive)
need to empty every use else it will clog up. but more than happy with mine. lightweight, powerful but 40 mins running time only possible on low power and brush bar off
No wonder they have plenty stock of returned units
The older Vax Air cordless has terrible suction too and whoever signed it off needs sacking. I was actually looking at one of these to replace the AIR but it seems that Vax still can't make a decent dry vacuum.
I have one of these, suction is so poor, even a Dyson v6 is light years ahead. Particularly bad on hard floor, all the crumbs etc. the motorised brush has picked up fall out when you stop.

Brand new, 1 year guarantee and free delivery. Oh and 60p cashback with TCB
Regarding the vaccum cleaners power The EU law in 2017 was that it was once again reduced from 1500 watts to 900 watts maximum power allowed for manufacturers
The machine barely qualifies as a hoover. Very week suction. I mean 1300W should be a clear indicator to the limitation of the product. When it came to wet cleaning, it didn't do anything. It barely made the carpet wet, didn't suck out much dirt. Just useless.
Got this https://www.wickes.co.uk/Wickes-Wet+Dry-Vacuum-with-Blower-20L---1250W/p/215735 last week to clean the loft before boarding it. Very impressed with the product.
Had one of these. Only used it a few times and the pump stopped working. Replacement pump is £30 plus labour. Waste of money. Look on internet pump breaking is a known problem. YouTube there is tutorials on stripping it down to replace pump as such a big issue.
What about it did you find so bad?

Deal still live. Was debating on this or a dyson v10 but glad I went for this at more than half the price! Build quality and suction is 10/10.
I got mine a week ago, its brand new, just didnt have the original box so the saving was amazing. Its really good for a portable, a litle bit noisy on full power and obviously not as good as a mains powered unit, but on the whole, very happy. The suction looks like it will be easily good enough to vaccum the car! Also when using around the house, the brush is electric powered so it really pulls the dirt from the carpets and has a light so you can see filth in the dark. Recommended at this price. Also ebay is 1% on TCB so get £1.30 back to spend on some sweets.
Received today. Absolutely love it. You can actually feel the suction on the first setting! I got a cheap Chinese branded one on Amazon and sent it back because it was underwhelming. This Vax blows it out of the water. Build quality is great as well. It really looks like a premium piece of kit. Love the battery system too. It said refurbished but in quality Vax fashion that doesn't mean much - consider it brand new. It wasn't in its original packaging but it was well packaged and apart from a couple of marks you wouldn't know it's been used at all (I'm still not convinced it has been). Bargain of the year for me so far!
Thanks, ordered. My current vacuum cleaner is a corded Vax which was bought from Amazon Warehouse about 5 years ago and it's still going strong. The suction is fantastic, and I'm hoping the cordless will also be decent. I bought a cheap one of Amazon and I'm underwhelmed to say the least so I'll be returning it.
Was out of stock before this was even posted! (annoyed)
Out of stock at this price.
I was in the same boat as you , I already owned a bissel and it had been sound but was probably 10 or 12 years old and the last Vax I had was one of those bright orange darlik things that were pants at best . Anyway I debated between the vax platinum and another bissel . The vax had a 1200 watt motor and spinning scrubbers rather than the spinning bar the bissel had which also had the heated tank which the vax didn’t. I went with the bigger motor as you put hot water in the machine anyway and it gets used before it’s had chance to go cold and thought the scrubbers would work better. I got a free floor steamer with it for £250 I think. The machine has been spot on , I had a problem with the small tools for the stairs that the plastic locking tabs on to the hose broke off with little use . I spoke to Vax and sent pictures of the broken parts ( which still work tbh ) yesterday and this morning I received an email saying that the parts are in the post , so I can’t fault the customer service. The light clean setting is good too , carpets dry in around an hour with heating on and a humidifier. I’m pretty happy with it , hope this helps. Btw there’s a new version out now too
What about for v large rug? I actually have carpet cleaning products already just no machine etc so I could clean myself just not sure how to and as I’ve never cleaned rug before. Can anyone help with this?
Is this a brilliant product? Yes. Especially at these times when being able to sterilise surfaces, as well as clean them, is so very important. It's a regular wet and dry vacuum cleaner. It's a high pressure steam cleaner (4.5 Bar). It's steam is hot enough to break double glazing and glass tables (if you don't follow the instructions). The combination with a vacuum means that most of the condensate gets recovered, along with the dirt. Is this a brilliant price? Erm. Well, yes, compared to the list price. But I got mine from a cleaning products company at near enough this price, delivered in an undamaged box. Still, I would rather have bought direct from Vax as they have a good reputation, when it comes to returns/ warranty claims/etc. OK, so I'm highly medically vulnerable - so have to be paranoid about such things - but it is great for cleaning carpets, too. Super for kitchen floors. It's also good for removing stubborn laundry stains. Need I mention elderly pets and very young ones? Accidents can happen. Oh and dye out of non-colourfast material - be warned or be stripey.
Steam extraction..... (confused) (skeptical) Can't i just open a window (lol)
