Not so good: Short hose length. Heavier than other Vax cleaners on the market.
Verdict: High power upright carpet cleaner that comes with a large cleaning width and range, not to mention heated cleaning, SpinScrub and Dual V technology.
The Vax All Terrain (V-125A) does exactly what it says on the proverbial tin – a multi-surface heated carpet cleaner that is perfect whether you want to get the dirt and grime from deep out of your carpet, off your upholstery or your stairs. Not only does it work on carpeted surfaces, but it also comes equipped with a hard floor kit so you can safely and properly wash your sealed hard floors. And thanks to its patented heated cleaning and its Dual V twin air path technology offering consistently powerful suction, your carpets will dry quickly enabling you to get on with your life in your own home rather than waiting for hours on end to walk around again. Whether you want to give your carpet a deep clean or you simply have to deal with an accident in the house, the cleaner can do it all: it can even suck up spills without having to treat or prepare the carpet first.
You can fill up its spacious water tank with 3.7 litres of water; its dirty water capacity meanwhile is 3 litres. It comes equipped with a 2.3 metre hose which is shorter than some that you’ll find with other carpet cleaners on the market, but which is still sufficient for most people when cleaning their homes. It has an auto-rinse facility which means it washes when you push it forward and rinses when you reverse. It is kitted out with an automix cleaning system that provides the right mixture of solution and water for the best results on your floors and surfaces. And its fingertip controls make it very easy to operate both before you start cleaning and when you switch it on to use around your rooms. In all, it is an efficient and effective cleaner which will leave your house looking clean and tidy.
This model comes with SpinScrub technology too which allows you to wash your carpets thoroughly. Its rotating SpinScrub brushes work to loosen dirt and stains that may have become embedded in your flooring. Also included in the box is the SpinScrub Tool with which you can more efficiently wash your staircase, your furniture, or any stubborn hard-to-clean stains on your floor.
When you buy your All Terrain you’ll also get two bottles of solution in the box: one 1.42 litre tub of Ultra+ carpet cleaning solution for your floors as well as one 1.42 litre tub of Floor to Floor solution for your hard surfaces. As well as your carpet washer and appropriate solution, your box will be packed with a flexible hose, a SpinScrub hand tool and an upholstery wash tool. For cleaning your hard floor you’ll also get a SpinScrub brush block, and squeegee. Your guarantee card offering six years’ free warranty as well as your instruction manual will also be included.
