As a vacuum for pet owners, the Vax Air Pet upright cleaner is a real gem. It works well on carpets and hard floors, it easily sucks up pet hair and it is easy to use. This model comes with a good set of attachments, including one that is specially designed for cleaning pet hair and it is very efficient with an energy rating of A.
This machine delivers impressive results for just about any job that you put it to. It has multi-cyclonic suction for cleaning power that is strong and consistent and it easily moves from hard floors to carpets. Pet owners will like because it is pretty reliable when it comes to getting the hair out of carpets and it has the pet tool for situations where it is a little tough.
For using the U87-MA-Pe from Vax, users will have few complaints. It weighs less than 5kg, so it is light enough to carry around, plus it has pivot steering for easy handling. The only issue with the handling is that the strong suction sometimes gets the vacuum stuck to the carpet. If you have deep carpets, it may take some arm power to get it to move back.
The Vax Air Pet also comes with all of the tools that you need for cleaning above the floor. You have the turbo tool, which is great for removing pet hair, but it is also good for working on furniture and cleaning the stairs. In addition to that, you have the cleaning wand, the crevice tool and a dusting brush. The one point that is going to disappoint some users is that the hose is kind of short. When you are using the attachments, you will have to keep moving the vacuum with you as you go.
For convenience, this is a bagless cleaner and it comes with a bin capacity of 1.5L. This is about average for the modern bagless vacuum cleaner and the user should be able to get most of their cleaning jobs dome without having to stop for an emptying. As an additional point, the bin is easy to access and the user should not have a hard time removing it or putting it back.
As for the build quality, the Vax Air Pet seems to be very well made. As long as you take care of the vacuum, it should last for many years. Further, the manufacturer does back this model with a six-year guarantee and that does offer some peace of mind for the buyer.
