Vax U91-MA-B Review

Very lightweight, doesn't lose suction, comes with a handy accessory pack and a 6 year guarantee! The brush bar occasionally requires unclogging - a minor issue, and not one which would put us off recommending the U91-MA-B

Our Vax U91-MA-B Vacuum Review

Looking to buy a high performance yet lightweight upright vacuum cleaner?  The U91-MA-B from Vax ticks these boxes, with 1600w of power and weighing just 5kg, it's an incredibly well thought out vacuum cleaner. With a 6m cord length, and a 1.5m flexible hose, the U91-MA-B features a huge overall reach, enabling it to be used far from the nearest power socket.  Storage is incredible simple too, with small overall dimensions of just 102cm by 30.5cm by 30cm.  The dust container is a touch on the small size at just 1.5 litres, but in practice we didn't have to empty it too often.  The built in "multicyclonic technology" eliminates any issues with loss of suction - we're not sure exactly how this works, but as much as we tried to make this hoover struggle, it performed admirably. The extension tube is telescopic, and gives you the option of reaching up to the ceiling to remove cobwebs - giving a degree of versatility to the U91-MA-B vacuum cleaner.  In addition,  the 3-in-1 tool which is supplied provides a few extra options - a crevice tool for those awkward to reach areas, upholstery tool for furniture and a dusting brush. We tested the 1600w Vax U91-MA-B over a period of weeks in 3 different houses, and it coped with everything from  mud to dog hair - we couldn't fault it.  Build quality is quite good, and performance is excellent - if you're looking for a do it all upright vacuum cleaner, then the Vax U91-MA-B  is well worth considering - our testers were impressed.

Our Verdict for the Vax U91-MA-B Vacuum Cleaner

Overall the U91-MA-B works very well indeed, which is pretty surprising considering it's low overall weight.  It feels as though it shouldn't be as powerful as it is given it's weight - we had no issues with suction, and found the Vax U91-MA-B to be extremely effective in removing dirt from our carpets.  Highly recommended.

    The wheel on our Vax turboforce 1700 has snapped off and am therefore looking to replace it and am interested in buying either VAX U91 ma b or VAX U90 ma r. Which would you recommend?

      Hi Andrea

      Both are very good vacuums – the Vax U90-MA-R has a higher RRP but both are currently available for around £100. In all honesty there’s not much to choose between them; both perform very well indeed, so ultimately it might come down to which colour scheme you prefer! Good luck with your purchase :)
