Vax Air Reach. You can tell just by looking at it that it is the business.
It is not a full capacity vacuum cleaner, but is absolutely perfect for use in the bedrooms and the upstairs landing - as it can be used on both carpets and hard floors.
The suction is absolutely amazing - I swear it sucks up dust and fluff before it even reaches it - it just disappears before your eyes. Because of its power, I did get into a couple of scrapes with it in the beginning, where it sucked up the fringe of one of my rugs, and tried to the take the whole rug with it. But it was easily sorted, by pressing the reset button, away to go again, avoiding the rugs.
It is incredibly easy to use, and empty out, it doesn't take up much space, and I am pleased I don't have to lug the other one up the stairs whenever I need to vacuum up the kids biscuit crumbs from their bedroom floor.
The original price of this upright was £259.99, but I now see that it is on offer at £149.99 - which is over £100 off!
