Very powerful but long cable

Pleased with the vacuum, very powerful but.... I thought having the long cable would be great - in actual fact it is a bit of a pain as it gets in the way too much and I have already vacuumed over it by accident nearly cutting through it. It is as described though so not a criticism, more of a warning to be sure you really need such a long cable. Overall, pleased with it.

Confirmed fan of VAX

My last Vax vacuum cleaner eventually gave up the ghost - after 15 years! I had to carry out a few running repairs on it such as shortening the power cable, but it was reliable and effective until the end. Time for another Vax! This model works very well indeed. It's lighter, quieter, and has a good suck on all surfaces. Its motor was half the rating of my previous Vax, but the cleaning effectiveness is improved by its new design. It definitely deserves the accolade of Which 'Best Buy'.

I did not like this at all seemed very cheap and flimsy . I returned it the next day for refund.

Why do you not inform customers of the power of your vacuum cleaners

1 Answer


The power rated input of the machine is 820w. The performance of the machine can't be judged by the wattage and therefore it can be misleading, instead it is now measured by its energy rating. This machine has an overall energy rating of A. The breakdown of this rating can be found above in the 'Product description / spec'.

Hope this helps!

This is a personal opinion, and I recommend checking customers reviews.

Turbo brush?

Wondering if there is a turbo brush with this. I cannot see any mention of one yet it sounds like it picks up as well as one without. Does the turbo brush pick up more from carpets such as embedded pet hair etc or is it not necessary?

2 Answers

it picks up cat hair from long and short carpets incredibly well!


Hi there,

No, the Vax U85-AS-Be vacuum cleaner does not come with a turbo brush.
