Does Not Have a Brush Tool

Most low maximum input power vacuums that have been around for a similar time to the BGL3A230B do not have a brush tool. The Bosch BGL3A230B is no exception to this as it too does not have a brush tool.

We compared all the other vacuums which also have a brush tool to this vacuum and we think the Princess Power DeLuxe[plb_2766213_price], the Numatic Henry Hoover HVR200-11[plb_3799744_price], or the Hoover Telios Plus TE70[plb_2822797_price] which is also cheaper is also worth considering.
