vax u88 am pe modelAs part of the new range of Vax machines, in line with the new European commission regulations, the U88-AM-Pe has been given the thumbs up by many customers since its launch in the summer of 2014. The dust bin capacity is a large 2 litres, which is great for those who have to contend with masses of pet hair! The energy class, performance on all types of floors and dust emissions all pass with flying colours – As!

The dual axis makes such a difference when cleaning and you’ll find those tricky areas – under the dining table, behind sofas and around furniture – a breeze to clean.

Out of the box

The U88-AM-Pe comes with:

  • the main unit
  • 3 in 1 crevice + dusting + upholstery tool
  • turbo tool
  • telescopic handle

vax-u88-am-pe-dual-axisThis model weighs around the 5kg mark, which means it’s a pretty lightweight model compared to most.

The noise levels are low and the dimensions small for an upright, so (coupled with all the other features), this model is very good value for money. We have found the manoeuvrability makes the U88AMPe easy to move around corners, but it takes some getting used to. The suction appears to be powerful, which can make the machine feel ‘heavy’ when using. It doesn’t feel as lightweight as other models we’ve tested, especially when lugging up the stairs, but the drawbacks outweigh the benefits.

We purchased this new vacuum cleaner after using our previous one for many years. The suction is great and we love the colour! We particularly liked the idea of peace of mind, having a 6 year warranty. Stan McGregor

What are the benefits?

  • Lightweight model.
  • Easy to manoeuvre around corners.
  • Large 2 litre dust container, so less emptying required.
  • Turbo tool great for pet hair.

Any drawbacks? 

  • Can be hard to clean stairs due to the hose length.
