Answer(s)
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.

Thank you for your question.

After contacting the manufacturer, I am sorry to say that as the Vax V-025RC Rapide Carpet Cleaner has no hose attachment it is not suitable for use on stairs.

Thank you for using Argos Q&A.

Question
Which to buy if for upholstery and carpets
Any advice would be appreciated as unsure which model to buy
Do i buy the basic model and purchase additional tools for the upholstery / stair carpet ---- still making it cheaper ( does this make it just as good as the deluxe model) or do i go straight for the deluxe (is there any difference in cleansing power/ drying time of the deluxe model etc )
Many thanks

Question
How heavy is this item?
On your website, it says that the Vax Rapide V-025RC weighs 4.3kg. But on the manufacturer's website, it states that it weighs 6kg. Please could you confirm the correct weight? I have a bad back and am looking for the lightest carpet washer available.
