Does Not Have a Brush Tool

Most vacuum cleaners of this age and type do not have a brush tool. The Rapide Ultimate W87-RH-P is no exception to this as it too does not have a brush tool.

We compared this vacuum to all the other vacuums with a brush tool and we think the Miele Complete C3 Cat&Dog PowerLine[plb_2875983_price] which is also cheaper is also worth considering.

Not Cordless

Like most of the other similar spec vacuums that were launched more than a year ago, the VAX Rapide Ultimate W87-RH-P is not cordless.

Chart Edit

Heavy

The Rapide Ultimate W87-RH-P is very heavy (10.6 kilograms) compared to most of the other vacuum cleaners that were released more than a year ago. Across all the vacuums that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Rapide Ultimate W87-RH-P the weights range from 1.1kg to 28kg, and the average weight is 6.6kg.

If you would consider a vacuum cleaner with a heavier weight then you might want to look at the VAX Mach Total Air Force U89-MA-T[plb_2927502_price] (5.2kg and cheaper), or the Miele Compact C2 Allergy EcoLine[plb_2915501_price] (6.5kg and cheaper) or the Sebo X4 Extra Eco[plb_2922002_price] (7.4kg and higher rated).

Average Operating Radius

At 11 meters, the VAX Rapide Ultimate W87-RH-P has a fairly average operating radius compared to most of the other vacuum cleaners of a comparable type and age to the Rapide Ultimate W87-RH-P.

We compared all the other 11m operating radius vacuum cleaners to this vacuum cleaner and we think a cheaper vacuum such as the Miele Complete C3 Cat&Dog PowerLine[plb_2875983_price] or you might consider a better rated vacuum such as the Sebo X4 Extra Eco[plb_2922002_price] are also worth considering.
