botheone40: Are these colletable or worth anything ? i have one of these with all the attachments. and the original box.
jimmy d: Which year did the last Blue series come out?
Pamela Chadwell: Hello great video thank you. I have a question hope you can help. my Rainbow is a SEPN2, can you tell me if there belt or gear driven? Thank you
Joshua Henderson: My family has a D3 in the basement but it might take 15 years to find it and all the parts becuase my basement is like a valley of old things :P
Bill Cole: Sure wish you'd covered my D2
Crazcompart: The same Rainbow used at home is the same Rainbow used for commercial apps...The difference is only the size of the water basin and the tirbulator...
Dax Marshall: my friends dad has a D4
SewVacuumIdahoFalls: Pretty good comparison of the different Rainbow vacuum cleaner models.
The SE is my favorite model. Parts are still available, the motor is powerful, and the hose and PN2 is a real improvement. Thanks for posting the video.
xncman: i love my rainbow...i have had 2..both i bought used..and had no issues at all..it sometimes a pain to load the water..but overall its a great vacuum...save yourself some money and shop online..
GreatVacsCOM: Thats right and great point :) The "SE PN2" and the "SE PE" are the same model. However most people refer to that model as the "SE PN2" but the "SE PE" is the same model as well. Good Point :)
GreatVacsCOM: Good questions :) We have also rebuilt and serviced the other brands as well. The other brands (all great vacuums) all use the Wessel Werk head and it is a quality head. Depending on the model I would say it is usually a toss up. The problem with those brands vs. Rainbow is parts availability because they are made in Germany. While Rainbow is made in the US and parts are easily found and Rainbow is more dependable. After the sale service can be spotty from the German vac
Art Konstantino: Are you an RGD? Do you like Rexair's new Power Nozzle better than the Wesselworks? Have you seen the Pro-Aqua? Thermax? Filter Magic? Miele? Hyla? Thanks a bunch! Art
mysqueeker: @ClassicTVMan1981X considering the newer pn's that rainbow produced it was the best performer in my opinion. i cannot afford a new 2 speed rainbow but i have used the sebo pn on a rainbow and it works much much better. the brush spins slower which allows the vacuum to keep up with the dirt being lifted by the brushes. rexair hasnt figured that out yet in their design.
$600 is still too much. I doubt they cost half that wholesale. Go to a yardsale/fleamarket in FLA and you can find 'em really cheap. My next door neighbors used to have a winter place down there a few years back and came home with two older chrome top models that cost them a whopping $200. I used to service them and the ones they had were in top condition.
Vacmasterthegreat: should have also mentioned the other big change between the D3 and the 4 was the power switch moved from the back to the top, and that therefor changed the inner design of the machine. The D4's carrying handle also was the 1st with a padded grip. obviously I know this, I was just putting it out there for everyone else.
Vacmasterthegreat: I like to refer to the last D4 as the SE PE. say that fast and you have a tongue twister. that's also what I thought it was called, the performance edition b/c of the pn2
GreatVacsCOM: Your right about the high price but even buying them from Rexair new they are totally worth it. We see perfect running Rainbow lasting 30+ years. Disposable vacuums other people buy last 2 years on average. How much money will you waste in 30 years on normal vacuums vs buying 1 vacuum like the Rainbow that also cleans much better?
Thats whats great about buying a Rebuilt one from us where we are 1/3 of the price of new AND all our Rainbows come with the 5 year warranty.
alwaysopen: Blah, blah, blah...I sold them and they aren't worth the money Rexair wants for them. The guy I worked for doubled the price he got them for - that's how Rainbow really works.
mazda3sp05: The blue two speed model has Acoustic Foam makes quieter motor, and Electric hose certified for wet up.
Eureka's design was, of course, used on its Roto-Matic Power Team canisters (also sold by Montgomery Ward and J. C. Penney among other retailers), and was also licensed to other door-to-door companies such as Fairfax, Compact and Tri-Star.
