Product information

Please note: Partial assembly with screwdriver required.

Boasting full height stair cleaning - a total cleaning reach of 15 metres - the Vax U90-MA-R Air Reach is the lightest, full size multi-cyclonic upright vacuum cleaner in the world.

Weighing just over 5kg, it has all the cleaning power and capacity of a full size multi-cyclonic upright in a compact and lightweight package. This makes it easy to carry from room to room and use with the minimum of effort, without losing anything in performance. Its compact design means it takes up less storage space than standard upright models too.

Powerful multi-cyclonic force is used to separate dirt from the air path so it collects in the container - not the filter - and your filters don’t get blocked. Clean filters ensure the suction of the machine is always as powerful as the first time you use it for consistently good dust pick-up. Constant powerful suction makes cleaning quicker too.

The Air Reach’s brushbar can be set for cleaning either carpets or hard floors and an LED performance indicator quickly alerts you of any blockages. Its handle can be adjusted to 8 different heights and it has a 3-in-1 crevice tool, dusting brush and upholstery tool stored on board for easy cleaning all around your home.

Q & As


Vax U90-MA-R Air Reach Upright Vacuum Cleaner 4.3 5 97 97
Brilliant - Highly Recommended Very surprised at the Vax. Compared to our old Dyson, it's a lightweight. Very easy to move around, goes from carpet to flooring with no fuss or bother. Fantastic suction and easy to empty. I'm a convert. 01 April 2014
not great! I bought this hoover and initially thought it was great, picks up every last piece of dirt, bit of a pain to swap to attachments but that was it. But then.. one of the attachments broke so I got in touch directly with vax who kindly sent me a new part. I'm now on my 4th part and it's not even a year old. I wouldn't of expected to swap parts this many times and its been a different part each time and some of them are quite difficult to fit. Wont be buying a vax product again. 06 March 2014
Not for me Used three times and motor blew up ! Fantastic customer care from John Lewis though. Worried as bought same model for my daughter 10 January 2014
Good Light Vacuum We have been using this vacuum for more than a month now. We find it light and easy to use and particularly good a picking up pet hairs. Would definitely recommend the hard floor tool to protect expensive hard flooring. Only down side is 3 in 1 tool is very basic. Turbo tool though is good for stairs along with the included extension hose 30 December 2013
Excellent little vacuum Lightweight, easy to use and manoeuvre around the home. From one power point I can do the whole of my staircase. I have 2 cats and this hoovers up their fur really well. Also very easy to empty. Overall, a great product. 22 October 2013
Poor suction and quality I've had 2 replacements in just over a year, I've not even waited for the 6 year guarantee to be up, I've traded it in to get another brand of bagless cleaner. The suction is poor, the motorised brush of poor quality, the clips break easily when you have to unclip from the bottom of the machine to clip into the handle for the hose. This was the worst decision I've ever made, I ignored the advice of the partner in the store to save a bit of money but now I'm paying the price. 04 October 2013
Great vacuum cleaner Just received my Vax from John Lewis...used it straight away and absolutely loved it. I actually bought this for upstairs. I have a "light" Dyson for downstairs, but its not a patch on this Vax. I am not the strongest 69 year old, but I don't find the attachments fiddly, as someone here has said, although I haven't yet found out where to store the turbo tool. The power lead is so long you can do the whole floor in one go. If you live in a bungalow, the whole place... I highly recommend this Vax ....btw John Lewis is great too !!! 30 September 2013
Designed by a man who's never vacuumed If you're looking for something to keep you busy - click this, unclick that, squeeze here, clip there - and your brain active, this is for you. If you're looking for a vacuum cleaner which will make your life easier and your house cleaner after a long day at work, putting the kids to bed, washing the dog, doing the ironing, cooking the dinner and watering the garden this is not. By the time you've fiddled about moving from the upright to the extensions, it'll be well after bed time. Great service from John Lewis, as always, though. 28 September 2013
