brilliant carpet cleaner for when i got to use it, but the weight of the machine and water took its toll on the handle which snapped at the lugs which fit inside the handle housing, It would then not let water through so couldn't wash or rinse carpet. I think this machines handle needs redesigned… Read Full Review

I was lucky enough to have the Vax Rapide Ultra 2 W90RU carpet cleaner recently, which also picks up spills. A frozen pipe burst in the house and this machine picked up 90% of the water from the carpet involved. I really liked the accessories included, i.e the pre-treatment wand which worked amazingly well on even old marks/stains. The upholstery tool also worked very well on my settee and armchairs. I have already started recommending this to friends and family as this is the first carpet… Read Full Review

Good cleaner with nice design. A bit clunky when moving around, particularly up and down the stairs. Where this cleaner did very well is with getting out pet odours and hair. Even though the carpets had been professionally cleaned the Vax still got out plenty more. The shampoo leaves a nice smell too. Little bit pricey if your paying ful price but I got mine on sale - so overall very happy… Read Full Review

The day after my new vax arrived, the dog decided to be sick - disgusting green vomit on my pale cream bedroom carpet. Talk about good timing.
The machine came well packaged. The handle was easy to attach and within minutes it was ready to use. I measured out the detergent (you get a bottle included) and filled the tank. Then it was time to tackle the stain. The machine is lightweight and easy to move around. I went over the stain twice and that was it - gone. I honestly could not believe how… Read Full Review

Well I tried this machine out thinking my carpets weren't that dirty, they still looked relatively clean after two years of various food/drink spillages and many craft accidents (among other things lol) from three young boys I was rather proud that my beige carpets were still beige.
How wrong I was!
The carpet cleaner arrived a couple of days before Christmas and I thought it might make the house feel fresher before the million & one relatives came to visit so cracked the box open. My first… Read Full Review

I recently acquired a Vax W90-RU-B Rapide Ultra Carpet Cleaner and I cannot believe how easy and straightforward it was to use and set up.
The cleaner was easy to use, came with a bottle of shampoo and was being used within 5 minutes of me opening the box!
The only downside it is heavy but I was able to move it around easily if it took me a little time to climb up/down the stairs.
Before use you need to ensure you hoovered the carpets thoroughly - this is to make sure you carpets get a… Read Full Review

Quite easy to put together although a diagram of how the hoses connected would have been helpful.
Easy to fill and use: just press a trigger walking forward and release when pulling it back. Cleaned a much used cream rug surprisingly well; found it best to go over the area a few times and the result was only really evident when it was dry. The amount of dirty water left in the tank showed that to get carpets clean, you really do need to wash as well as vacuum.
Apart from the cleaning ability… Read Full Review

After hiring carpet cleaners in the past, normally at least once a year to clean the carpets I always thought that home use ones would not be as good or easy to use. After getting the VAX W90-RU-B Rapide Ultra cleaner I was amazed how easy it was to setup.
Once setup it did not stop there, it is easy to fill the water container and place back onto the carpet cleaner, which easily fits on the back and does fit securely as not to seem that it will come off. I thought to try out first I would… Read Full Review

Two words so simple. I was completely amazed how simple this vax was to use. Both the cleaner tank and the dirty water tank are easy to remove fill and empty. Carrying the cleaner upstairs was no problem as it has a wide grip on the front body below the handle which gives a good secure grip enabling you to carry it effortlessly. It takes up no more room than an ordinary vacuum cleaner.
The cleaner is easy to operate by pressing the trigger on the handle as you push forward… Read Full Review

We have a beige carpet in our home and there were some stains on it and I have to say that after the first use with this carpet cleaner the stains disappeared. It is quite easy to assemble and dismantle and easy to emptying the dirty water tank.
We've tried other carpet cleaner detergent and I have to say that it didn't work as well as the VAX detergent. I think that it is easier to clean with this carpet cleaner in large rooms. The carpet was left almost dry. The provided hose is very… Read Full Review

A fantastic product, truly excellent value for money.
With three little girls, as you might expect, accidents; food spills, craft and painting 'projects' and the like tend to take their toll on upholstered dining chairs and the surrounding carpets. Likewise, the midnight sickness bout that didn't quite make it to the loo in time can leave (despite your best effort with localised cleaning) noticable marks on carpets from bedroom, landing and bathroom.
This Vax W90-RU-B cleaner then is exactly… Read Full Review

I received my new VAX W90-RU-B I had previously owned the VAX V-125 All Terrain Upright Carpet Washer and from unboxing the VAX W90-RU-B I could tell there had been a number of improvements from that model.
Having a accident prone wife, a small dog and young baby sometimes accidents can happen things get knocked over, mud bought in and dirty paws!
Unboxing is straight forward the VAX is safely packed and comes with a hose hand attachment along with a bottle of VAX ultra carpet cleaner. the… Read Full Review

This is an excellent carpet cleaner. Easy to follow instructions and easy to use. I would recommend you read the instruction manual thoroughly to avoid any misuse.
I have three very young children and as you can imagine the carpets do become quite dirty, especially during the recent snowy sleety weather and not to mention the Christmas festivities, but I have to say this product has bought my carpets up a treat and with not too much hard work on my part, which is always a bonus!
The product… Read Full Review

Vax Rapide Ultra W90-RU-B - This is an excellent carpet cleaner that does exactly what it says it should.
Assembley is easy to do - although the instruction leaflet provided is for this model and the pre-treated model too and can be a little confusing - but only took 5 minutes to get together.
Using the carpet cleaner couldn't be easier. The instructions do say to vaccum thoroughly and this is a must - especially in all the nooks and crannies! I started by using the hand tool to do the edges… Read Full Review

I received this product last week (Vax Rapide Ultra 2) and as I have been busy lately I waited till the weekend just gone, to try it out. I thought It would be really difficult to put the thing together, but to my amazement It was so easy. All I had to do Is remove a pin at the neck of the hoover, then insert the handle and finally replace the pin. This keeps the handle of the hoover nice and snug. Everything else Is already in place: The dirty water tank, Clean water tank are already fiited… Read Full Review

We moved into our new house a year ago and I hadn't been able to get rid of the musty smell from our carpets as the previous owners had 2 dogs. I had not considered a product like this before as they are usually far too expensive but I had heard good things about Vax so decided to check out their products.
I have not been disappointed...this machine REALLY invigorates carpets and is incredible value for money. The machine took minutes to assemble, basically you just have to attatch the handle… Read Full Review
