I have just bought the V-026RD ( Rapide Deluxe)from Argos .The main ,perhaps only difference between the two is that the V-026RD comes with the hose and cleaning tool ,the V-025RC (Rapide Classic) does not ,so is just a floor cleaner. The previous answer is incorrect the tank capacitiesare identical(3.5 litres clean water 2 litres dirty water), the weight difference is that of the hose and cleaning tool. The hose and cleaning tool is used for stairs or upholstery . The hose and cleaning tool can be bought from Vax (and stockists ) for about thirty quid and fits the V-026RC , you then effectively have a V-026 RD. Re assembly ,a piece of cake ,4 screws,5 minutes,simples.

Hi, thank you for your question.
Having looked at these products for you, I can confirm that there are quite a few different specifications between the two products. The Vax Rapide V-025RC Carpet Cleaner has a 3.2 litre clean water tank capacity, 7.5m power cord and weighs 6kg.
The Vax V-026RD Rapide Deluxe Carpet and Upholstery Washer on the other hand has a 3.5 litre clean water tank capacity, 7.6m power cord and has a weight of 7.7kg.
Please view these products again for further product information.
Thank you for using Q & A.
