I'm glad you appreciate the feedback, it's really not a bad machine, just not a bargain given the normal prices. Hopefully you'll be very happy with your purchase though. In terms of comparing this model from Argos and the Curry's one, I was only really considering the base unit itself and you are right there are subtle differences. The usual tweaks between models are colours, hose length, power cord length and the tools. There's not much scope to change the power cord as there's limited space in the machine to store it and changing the hose can effect performance so there's not likely to be much difference there either, however these are the things to look out for. Specifically on the tool front, you are quite right that this model seems to have three separate tools for upholstery, crevices and dusting (they may not actually be separate tools, but probably are). However the Curry's model actually has a three-in-one tool with all of these. This three-in-one tool is cheaper but on the other hand is less to store (or lose!) than three separate tools. Most importantly, the floorhead in both is exactly the same, this is critical to the carpet and hard floor performance, so is actually exactly the same on almost every Vax model. It's also the only tool they spent any money designing, not withstanding the tool set you mention. On the subject of which, with the three-in-one tool included you obviously do not have to buy that to make the Curry's model comparable (and £34 is at least £20 more than anyone should be spending on that!). In short, there's really not much to choose between the two machines, and I'd encourage anyone buying either to compare the details of the specifications before making a choice. However this is about the right price and with £3 difference you may as well choose on colour (as many people probably will).
Thank you for this balanced comment also the link. It is worth noting that the model you provide the link to has a separate attachment bundle for £34.99 ( 8 piece ) whereas, the Model above has: Crevice nozzle, upholstery nozzle, dusting brush, combination floor nozzle. included in the total price. :)
For you anything Zany. (angel) <3 <3
This vacuum has been in the Vax range for about seven or eight years. Although it did have a fairly major overhaul in 2013 when the EU legislation required the motor, filters and other bits be changed. Every year or two they change the name and colour scheme - more often if the bad reviews mount up. That said this is usually one of the better performing and reviewed vacuums, which is why it's been around so long. However it is regularly sold at around the £50-£60 mark and is generally only listed at a higher price so that it looks like a bargain when reduced (standard practice for the full Vax range). Currently available in a slightly different guise from Curry's for £59.99 - https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/home-appliances/floorcare/vacuum-cleaners/vax-power-compact-pet-ccmbpcv1p1-cylinder-bagless-vacuum-cleaner-silver-blue-10158371-pdt.html
thank you chucu, as per the title and description also. :) Appreciate your comment.
Bought this vax cordless from lidls a few days ago. It'll be going back! I've given it every chance, charged it a few times checked every seal and filter and suction is still less than my hetty with a completely solid full bag. Utter heap of shit!!
it was though so that’s why the rrp is £149
It’s not even £149.99 on the Vax website..
a very warm welcome newbie.heat added :)
i have one. They are not bad but I think I prefere the simple old ones.
800 watt is lower power, no idea on the overall performance though
Looks good, anyone got one?
Thanks op, ordered. 4% cashback with Topcashback - they also have the free delivery code to use.
Oh dear -static brushbar :( . About as much use as a chocolate fireguard . :S . Don't members ever read reviews before posting dross ? Pay a little extra and get a rotating brushbar / s model .
Thank you n15hu :)
Do the shake and Vax and put the freshness back. Super clean suction. Thank you Zany. <3 8)
The reviews are 88% favourable on ebay. (y) Always a good idea to check and research before buying such items. Thanks for your input it will help others deciding to buy or not. Edit: on the plus side it is nearly £30.00 cheaper with this deal than on Amazon.
Cheap enough but is it good enough? Over 30% 1 Star reviews on Amazon.
yup, totally agree with you mate
I really like this brand, but all vacuum cleaners are heavy AF..

Well that's yet another Vax in our house, I might have a fetish. That will be number 5 and my mother has 2. Good find thank you
If anyone's looking for the model rogparki recommended above (thank you again!), it has since sold out on both appliancesdirect.co.uk and amazon (£104.99). The one mentioned above in Studio doesn't have the stair attachment. I found the model with the attachment at freenetelectrical.co.uk for £91.98, next day shipping included. I had never heard of freeNet but after a bit of searching they seemed decent, so I took a chance and ordered. My order arrived yesterday, used it today. I'm pleased. Worth checking them out if you're hunting for a carpet washer with rotating brushes and a stair tool. https://www.freenetelectrical.co.uk/vax-w86-dp-r-dual-power-reach-carpet-cleaner/
These are truly pointless. Go on ebay and buy a refurbished higher end model. Or if you only want to do upholstery, stairs and car then buy a normal wet and dry "shop" vac from Screwfix. Buy carpet cleaning fluid and a suitable brush and bucket. Hand clean the area you want to clean. Buy a carpet cleaning nozzle off ebay for £16.99, this one works well and fits my shop vac.

These static brushes are rubbish in fact a good vacuum cleaner will probably clean your carpets better than this, I used one which did nothing except get the carpet wet, go for the one with the rotating brush, I use the Bissell powerwash cleaner which have very good results. Occasionly sellers have new stock at half price on eBay.
Agree you need the brushes we got the dual v advance total home, refurbished off ebay 3 years ago fantastic leaves the carpets dry with max extract
I'd have to agree with all of the above. We have a Vax Dual Power Pro (spinning and rotating brushes) and its great, i'd definitely recommend. Before that we had the one in the OP and it was rubbish. The static brush makes it really difficult to push on long pile carpet and it doesn't really do much scrubbing anyway.
Studio also has this carpet cleaner for sale, i think its the same one and its cheaper, just search vax dual power carpet cleaner on their website
appliances direct terrible company ordered this a week ago just got an email night before delivery to say it is not being delivered as it is no longer available so they have had my money in their bank for a week but I am not getting my order avoid these cowboys
Great for drowning your underlay, unless the newer models are any better!
This is 65 quid on studio. There is free delivery at the moment too. Word of warning though, this thing is tosh and has a design fault resulting in the belts just melting due to excess strain caused by two rotating bars. Had 4 replacements and counting.
Got this from lidl cleaned the whole house very easy and straight forward to use however you cannot use it on stairs as this model hasnt got the necessary attachment
Same price at the Penryn store, was debating wether to return the one I got from amazon a few weeks back to save myself £20
I've got this hoover, wouldnt reccommend it!
Voted hot! Posted a deal for this at £59.99 not long ago. But was a local deal in shop, so this deal is good, at least you can check if your local argos has it, so you don't waste time.
Save a bit of cash if you don't mind a bit less power, the toptech 1700 watt 90 bar is £42.49 with eBay's discount code or on their own site with their summer35 code
Seem to be plenty in my county (Cambridgeshire) - not sure about elsewhere.
225 miles to the nearest store with stock (slough)
Very different opinions from the two of us. The steering isn't the best I admit, is this what you base you heavy movement on? It doesn't turn effortlessly but I find it easily manageable.
Everywhere that the most stupid design I came across. Is like moving a stone .terrible
Where or what surface have you experienced the heavy use? The only time I have to put extra effort in but not much more is on my shaggy rug which I'd expect. It glides over all my carpets including the long pile in my bed room. It's a lightweight cleaner that I couldn't recommend higher. I'm 3 years in and had no issues. Clean it regularly and store it so it won't get damaged and it should go on and on. In the 3 years I've had this the only wear and tear it has is a scratched up brush bar (no concern) and over time it has got a little louder in use, I can tell the difference in noise from new but it's not a bother. No squeaking. If my family or friends were considering it I would tell them to buy it.
The VAX 6 year warranty is a joke as any faults are classed as 'wear and tear' The only part of the vacuum cleaner that is covered by the warranty is the motor. I wouldn't buy any VAX products again because of this and the woeful customer service.
These cleaners are great bought mine in the 75 % off vax sale excellent cleaners
Great cordless vacuum cleaner. They have a 5 year guarantee too. We have had the 'Duo' ( two battery) version for 3 years now, all good. Middle section lifts off to become a handheld for doing the stairs, although it's light enough to use the whole thing to do this. Good deal! Don't let all the negatives put you off posting, obviously they know nothing about vacuum cleaners.
99p change from £100
Hell of a deal,They should clean up
Cold, got this for 85p last week :p
Sadly no more in stock. Just been and checked. Perhaps next time :)
We got a vax last year. Yes, they feel very cheap, but they sure are powerful. Better than an old dyson we had. Not sure how they compare to a shark though
Remember Vax have little confidence in the reliabilty of their prooducts. The warranty period has been slashed from 6 years to a paltry 2 years. The cables are flimsy and very cheap plastic build. But a good price at £65. Maximum price of ownership is £32.50 per year! Should be less. This is the calculation I use!
Thank you bought it 😬 (y)
Ahhh I see I see (highfive)
Vast array of Vax cleaning solution online to as I posted over past few days, really time to stock up @ 1\2 price (party)
Got this yesterday and it got a unbelievable amount of dirt up and the carpet looks brand new :)
Vax are awful. Had 2 different models and Learnt my lesson, have a henry now and it's fantastic. Vax used to be good many years ago but seems as though they just suddenly turned into cheap Chinese crap one day lol
Does anyone know if it heats the water-up?
Is this really that bad?!
You can always return it and get a Shark instead :D
I bought their best cleaner 2 years ago off thei5site for £130 in the sale. It's brilliant. Sorry but I don't know when their sale is
Just ordered 2. Thank you
Does anyone know when VAX have their summer sale? or do they not have that anymore?
Shays different about this and home bargains stardrops or astonish carpet cleaners for £1??
Not sure, I use the standard carpet cleaner in the rugdoctor
Had a look but I don't think this one comes with all the accessories included.
This WAS a good deal. I've posted a few day ago the 1700W set for £59.99 and got some heat. Too bad is out of stock, I was waiting for the price to go under £50.
Someone has bought the last one...... ;(
OOS You can get it from direct-Vaccums in same price: https://ebay.us/rO9vd7
