Worthless! Get the G3 Instead
1 week ago
I have had this now for around 4 months. It is a piece of garbage. God forbid it encounter more than 3 leaves at a time it gets clogged inside or on the treads. I have previously had the Barracuda G3 and thought I was upgrading but that is far from the truth. I have gone back to the G3 as it does what it says and cleans my pool, unlike the MX8. Save yourself an almost $500 dollar mistake and do not buy this!

MX8 Cleaner

This is my second MX8. I gave my old one (about 2 years old) to my son when he bought a house with a pool last month. I love the MX8. It works just great. Repairing is simple. My old one was missing a C-clamp on the drive sprocket. This caused the gear to jam when it was about 6 months old. I bought a new drive shaft at my local pool store with the required C-clamp.The repair was quick,& simple.Both machines,the old one,& the new one are working just fine. I got the leaf catcher with my new MX8,& .. more

After experiencing extreme difficulties with my Hayward Ultra Pool vac, and spending enough on re-re-building(3x) I had enough! I bought the MX-8 and immediately saw results. It does a Superior job cleaning the floor and walls of my concrete in-ground pool. Wish I had bought one years ago. Great Device!

It beats a Hayward and cleans better
7 months ago
I had Hayward for about 10 yrs. and kept had to replace it or fix it every 2 or 3 yrs. at cost of $100 and up. So I decide to get a MX-8. It works better than Hayward on the steps and the sides of the pool. Also, if I ever need to fix it is only $80 for everything kit but my store told me most of time its like $15 for repairs and its usually treads. I highly recommend this pool cleaner
