    The Vax is delivered in quite a small box and you have to assemble it yourself. Its very easy to do, takes 5 minutes and only requires 3 screws the rest of the parts just click into place.

    Build quality seems fairly good although the holder for the turbo head is a bit flimsy, but I am sure it will do the job. The machine is heavy (mentioned in other reviews) so if you are not very strong look elsewhere. The on switch and recliner buttons are located on the left side and easy to reach with your foot, unfortunately it is near where the cable comes out and this is my only real gripe, the placement of the cable. On the positive side the cable is very long and I managed to do my entire flat from one mains socket.

    The use of the accessories is quite straight forward, just push them together, same as most other machines. My niggle here is that the crevice tool could have been smaller, it is too long for what I need to do but for most people it would not be an issue.

    To test the cleaning power I first cleaned the carpet and kitchen floor with my old vac then went over it with this new machine. I could not believe how much extra dirt it picked up, filling the cylinder to about 1/3 full. The carpets looked cleaner and refreshed. For pure cleaning power I am very impressed and would recommend this to anyone not wanting to spend loads of money on another well known brand as I cannot see it cleaning any better than this one and they are more than double the price.

    UPDATE: Having used this machine for quite a while now I should point out that its weaknesses are the catch that holds the handle up is not very good and often gives way when using the hose with tools. Never angle it so it can fall open and hit something. It never allows you to get more than a 1/3 full cylinder before it blocks the top filter and you have to empty it. The machine filter in the bottom of the unit must be taken out and washed every 3 or 4 weeks, there are 2 slots to allow you to use something like a knife handle as a wrench to undo the cover for this filter.

    I already used the Power Pet 2 and thought that this was amazing at picking up the dog hairs, we have 5 white haired dogs, a nightmare!!! |However, we got this to test and are totally gobsmacked at just how much of an improvement it is. The suction power is first class, leaving carpets like new and the pet attachment for furniture is amazing lifts the finest hair off, suite looks like new. The long length of cable is a bonus as you can go from room to room with ease.
    It is a bit noisy but not as noisy as the Pet 2 so this is an improvement even though it feels like a jet engine starting!! Great not having a filter in the collection chamber, no build up of dust and having to furiously shake the filter to free of dust, certainly a job I am glad not having to do now, so easy to empty and keep clean. Would absolutely recommend for anyone not just pet owners.Vax U89-P8-P Power 8 Pet Bagless Upright Vacuum Cleaner

    I am a house keeper/cleaner by trade so have used a lot of hoovers over the years. This new Vax Power 8 pet vacuum is by far the best. It works great on both hard floors and carpets. It has an adjustable head setting, so can even be used on shaggy carpets, it has brought mine up like new. The tools are great, I love the turbo pet hair tool as this makes hoovering the stairs and furniture a doddle. This is the only vacuum I’ve ever used that picks up all the hairs first time, so no need to go over the same spot again and again. It has a 3 litre bin capacity so needs emptying less often. If I had to find one fault with it, (and I have had to be really picky here) is that it is a bit noisy compared to other models, but I put this down to the powerfull 2200 motor. For asthma sufferers like me, the Hepa filters are great, it is also antibacterial, so a lovely clean machine to use too.
