What is the Vax Air Lift Steerable Pet U84-AL-PE? It aspires to become the lightest corded lift-out cylinder vacuum cleaner, and it may very well have that title. It also aims to be a true all-rounder as it has an 800-watt motor does pack a good punch when comparing it to other cordless models out on the market. It also has a 1.5-liter dust bin which you can take advantage of in cleaning a few rooms before it needs emptying. It comes with a number of tools which can then become a great bargain unit.
The Vax Air Lift Steerable Pet U84-AL-PE Brings Flexibility to Cleaning
Taking the Vax Air Lift Steerable Pet U84-AL-PE immediately out of the box, you can virtually get it going. Just clip on the dual purpose handle/wand to the main body and you can start sucking up dirt (amongst other things). Looking at the main floor head, it is large and wide, which promises good coverage when cleaning floors quickly.
Its turbobrush can be switched on or off independently, and it has a floor selector slider found on its top. The latter feature offers a choice between hard floors or low pile carpets under one setting, and deeper pile carpets for the other. This does not, in any way, alter the floor head height or the actual brush bar. What it does is it reduces or increases suction power depending on the type of floor. This way, the head won’t stick down to smoother surfaces (which would otherwise ruin your nice floor).
When it comes to detailed and spot cleaning tasks, the main handle doubles as a cleaning wand. This wand will then attach to a hose. It will then unclip just above the floor head. However, both are found to be on the short side of things. Even when the wand is combined, it won’t be able to reach ceiling cobwebs unless you stand up on something or someone from the household gives you a lift (or unless you’re a person with a considerable height).
Still, herein lies the neatest trick of the Vax Air Lift Steerable Pet – with a push of a button, the whole motor and bin assembly will lift separately from the main column. These can then be carried around and lifted to gain reach to avoid lifting the entirety of the machine when going through hard to reach areas.
When it all boils down to cleaning, the Vax Air Lift Steerable Pet U84-AL-PE is a joy to use. Even when using it as an upright cleaner alone, it will roll and turn without giving you too much trouble (if there is any). The balance while in the hand is great, even when you turn the device around sharp corners. It brings convenience to cleaning stairs and other difficult-to-clean areas if you’ve been using a traditional vacuum cleaner all this time.
