Efficient, & powerful

Heavy to carry, instructions not easy to understand, storage of accessories on machine cumbersome.

Vax V-027 Rapide XL

 

Works exactly as described and does a very good job - The machine works better than I expected, the carpet is hardly wet when finished.

A little bit heavy to move around when fully loaded with water, but you soon get used to it and I would recommend you do not move this machine as fast around the floor as a standard vacuum machine as it would not do such a good job.

Vax V-027 Rapide XL

 

Very easy to use, it works well on stains. The amount of water it holds is great. It is very easy to get rid of the dirty water, unlike the old round vax's that you had to unlock the lid and then pick it up to get rid of the dirty water, this one you...

None that I have found.

After unpacking the VAX, it was very easy to put together, I did have one bolt that lost its' thread though and wouldn't connect to the screw it was supposed to. Apart from that it has been very easy to use, I like the fact that I can vertually leave...

The water spray on the attachments for the upholstery is a little too wide, but that might just be for my furniture - I was using it on the arm of the sofa at the time.

Vax V-027 Rapide XL

 

It powers up when switched on.

It clogs up and parts of it are almost impossible to clean. Wet carpet pile is lifted and clings to the brushes; and when it is stopped the brushes each leave a line of dirt on the carpet you've just cleaned - a concentrated black line that the cleaner...

Easy to use

Quite heavy

Vax V-027 Rapide XL

 

I was surprised at how well it worked on a very well worn and frankly, quite dirty, child-beaten living room carpet. That is also the main through route from upstairs to kitchen and so was heavily downtrodden as well. After use, the carpet was not...

It is quite big and heavy and finding storage space in our small house was not easy. Its size and weight also meant I lost a few calories using it. That was good for my waistline, but may prove a bit challenging for an elderly or physically frail person.
