Great Machine!

published

The power head is amazing, made my dog/cat hair covered rug new again.
My last VAX lasted 5 years and it was the bottom of the range, and this one has a 2 year warranty.
The hard floor head it nice and simple, it doesn't have any buttons or switches on it to change from carpet to hard.
Great on hard floors, even better on carpet.
No problems with the vacuum cleaner tipping over and it also has a very long hose.

Purchased in September 2019 at Bunnings Warehouse for $268.00.

Amazing performance for the price

published

Purchased from Bunnings for $269 to replace my Dyson Animal (the powerhead packed it in and a spare part costs as much as this tax).

As my entire apartment is carpeted and my kids have mild asthma and dust mite sensitivity, this has helped greatly. The powerhead agitates the carpet and draws out the nasties. The chamber fills up quiet fast with the amount of construction dust and general crappy Sydney air quality that makes its way into the apartment during the day when the windows are open.

A feature that would have been nice is adjustable suction levels like how a Miele or Wertheim has (mind you they are $700+)

Purchased in March 2019 at Bunnings Warehouse for $269.00.

Why are you reading this instead of going out and buying the VX59?

Very good value, for the money

published

With a vacuum cleaner the main thing is, does it pick up the dirt? And when you tie down the 'experts' they mostly tend to agree a powerhead is what makes all the difference. This model comes with a power head. It's replacing a 10+ y o $800 Wertheim, with powerhead, and doing an equally good job for $269. It may not last the same time, but technology is improving daily. It's bagless plus easy to empty and clean! Under 5kg to carry up stairs and hasn't tipped over, so far. There is a special head for hard floors and the 3-in-1 tool is handy. Only gripe, and it is a small one, the clip to hold the 3-in-1 tool to the handle is pretty ineffectual, that needs a rethink by the designers.

Very Effective Vac but Cannot be Cleaned

published

Very effective vacuum cleaner with a power head; very good suction for carpet vacuuming; and the power head glides over the carpet, very easy to maneuver. But the dust has quickly coated the small compartments which cannot be cleaned or washed with water. The inlet seal connecting between the vacuum body and the tub seemed to be not sealing tightly as I could see some dust collecting at the base of the outlet of the vac body connecting to the tub.

It is light comparing to the Hoover power head vacuum cleaner (bought from Godfreys) I had, which broke after 5 years of use. This Vax VX59 is less than half the price of the Hoover I had.

Good on carpets, not on hardfloors

published

If you want a good allrounder vacuum, then this vacuum isn't for you. Absolutely awesome on carpets, lifts every bit of dust, human hair, cat hair, etc. has basic suction on hardfloors without the power head on. If you have the power head on while cleaning hard floors it will just spit most things back out at you, particularly bigger things like popcorn, kitty litter crystals, toast crumbs, etc. It will also spit some of the bigger things back out on the carpet too but not as bad. Its ok. It will do us until it dies but I won't be buying another.

Most of the vax vx59 mention wonderful on cleaning carpets. My house is all wooden floors and was wondering if this vacuum cleaner is for me.

Hi Robyn. I would have to say that you're right, the standout feature of the 59 is its carpet power head. For non-carpet floors, the suction of the 59 would be perfectly adequate but the power head would be of no benefit.

I have recently moved and find the hardfloor tool is ok, however long hairs can clog the suction hole easily. Make sure you also dismantle the catcher and wash it every 2 months as the fine dust reduces performance

Doesnt the HEPA filter on this Vax need cleaning/washing like in a Dyson or does it need to be replaced regularly?

I've used mine 10+ times and haven't had to clean it.
But as the name 'filter' suggest it will need to be cleaned at some stage as it's filtering out something.
