Vax no longer exist in the US. The cleaners you used to have as Vax were the old style British made 3in1 cleaners. Vax got bought out by TTI, so the cleaners you know as Dirt Devil and Hoover in the US are Vax's in the UK and Europe.

Hmmmm not the best quality or reliability.

You get a 6 year warranty tho. Their workshop must be very busy 😁

What about the x3 & x5 (US models) which aren't TTI Vax

I don't know who made those - we had them here badged as Vax and Bosch. I believe they were the first bagless upright Vax we had, so they could've been made on licence by anyone really.

I had the Vac Air Reach. I think the reach must have stood for reach for the phone when they break down every month 😂

My Mum has an Air Reach, it's a nice little vac. And it's not broken at all - it's about 2 years old now, I think.

She should apply to the Guinness book of records for the longest lasting Vax 😊

It did a decent job when it was working but there are better options in my opinion. I also had a Vax carpet washer. That was always going wrong too.

I'll never buy another Vax.

Aren't you annoyed that your mum uses a bagless cleaner? 😱

TTI

Don't be so quick to poke fun at TTI. They make some very high quality machines. Check out my Royal Everlast 8300 made by TTI. This machine sold for $789.00 and has the same quality fit and finish as a Kirby which cost twice as much.

Haha yes the Metal Royal yes I agree but that's an exception. I didn't think you were a fan of plastic crap Stan 😁

No, I hate plastic unless when it is  used in quality Tacony machines like Riccar and Simplicity.

She can use whatever the heck she likes, it's no concern of mine. She needed something lightweight as she's got arthritis in her thumbs and wrists, so the Vax is ideal.

Well that's the vast majority of what TTI produce. Plastic crap. I'm very glad they haven't ruined the Metal Royal though.

I've heard rumours it's going to be discontinued and only the commercial cleaners will be available.

Those Royal  Rumors have been flying around for a couple of years. If you go on the Royal website, you'll see the household Royal Metal Pro Series is still being sold with a 7 year warranty I believe.
