About Vax vacuum cleaners

Vax launched their iconic orange vacuum cleaner back in 1979, and has since grown to become the UK’s best-selling floorcare brand as well as expanding into multiple foreign markets. Vax in Australia offers a wide range of devices to care for your floor; their vacuum range includes barrel, upright and cordless cleaners, the former available in both bagged and bagless varieties, as well as more heavy-duty machines such as wet-and-dry canister vacs. They also offer more specialised floor-cleaning devices such as steam cleaners, carpet washers and pressure cleaners.

Vax vacuum cleaners incorporate multiple technological innovations to keep them at the cutting edge of the market. Their AirRevolve cylinder vacuum has a unique compact, cylindrical design that allows it to be carried or wheeled around in any orientation – it combines the power and versatility of a barrel vac with the portability of a smaller machine, making it highly effective. Their cordless vacs come equipped with LED headlights to help you see into tight spaces, as well as a boost mode to increase suction power for stubborn dirt.

What our survey respondents say about Vax vacuum cleaners

Canstar Blue’s most recent survey of just over 1,200 consumers who had purchased purchased a new vacuum cleaner within the past 3 years garnered the following comments, among many others, from customers of Vax:

Love Vax products have always had a Vax cleaner in my household. A fraction heavy to move about.
It is effective, not too noisy, barrel has a decent size to collect dust, easy to empty, can adjust suction as required, looks good, light so can be carried or wheeled around easily. The hose bends easily especially when trying to turn the vacuum around which constricts the airflow and has to be restored manually by hand.
It’s a very effective vacuum cleaner and I have been very happy with it. The bottom section of the barrel can be difficult to open sometimes, when I am emptying the rubbish out of it.
Works well on any surface and suction is good. The cord is in the wrong place.  Obviously designed by a man who doesn’t use a vacuum cleaner.
Good vacuum cleaner and does an excellent job. Does not seem to glide over the carpet easily.  I seem to use a lot of effort vacuuming.
