Does Not Have a Brush Tool

The BGS5SIL2GB does not have a brush tool. Most of the other vacuum cleaners of this type and age also do not have a brush tool.

We compared this vacuum to all the other vacuum cleaners with a brush tool and we think the PU71EN01001[pl_2978248_price], or the Telios Plus TE70[pl_2822797_price] both from Hoover or the Numatic Henry Hoover HVR200-11[plb_3799744_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Poor Brush

Some people who bought it agreed that it did not have a good brush. C. Cassisa said a few weeks ago “My only criticism is that it doesn't come with the attachment that has the brush that spins round” nonetheless they gave this vacuum cleaner a very good review score. Jaykay gave the product a rating of 40 out of 100 and wrote two years ago “I also have difficulty in separating the brush pole from the handle” in their review of the Bosch BGS5SIL2GB.

Heavy

At 8.3 kilograms, the BGS5SIL2GB is fairly heavy compared to most of the other vacuums that came out around the same time as the BGS5SIL2GB. Across all the low maximum input power vacuums that were released around the same time as the BGS5SIL2GB the weights range from 5.2g to 13kg.

Other 8.3kg heavy vacuum cleaners currently available which you might also want to look at include because of it's better review score, the Bosch BGS4[plb_2812974_price].

3 Other reasons to consider the Bosch BGS5SIL2GB

Average Operating Radius

At 10 meters, the Bosch BGS5SIL2GB has a fairly typical operating radius compared to most of the other vacuum cleaners of this age and spec.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 10m operating radius vacuums currently available including because of it's better review score, the Samsung VC07H40[plb_2815304_price].

If you are looking for a vacuum cleaner with a bigger operating radius then you might want to consider the James Hoover JVP180-11[pl_2901798_price] (26.8m and higher rated), or the Henry Hoover HVR200A[pl_3029321_price] (26.8m and higher rated) both from Numatic or the Bosch BSGL5AL2GB[plb_2815306_price] (15m and higher rated).

Dry Cleaning Type

The cleaning type of this vacuum is Dry, which is the most commonly supported cleaning type on vacuums of a similar age and type to it.

We compared all the other Dry vacuums to this vacuum and we think the Lyra LY71[pl_2561774_price], and the SE71 SE61[pl_3383772_price] both from Hoover or the Dirt Devil Rebel 24 HFC[plb_2973812_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If the cleaning type of this vacuum is too bad for you then you might also want to consider the VAX Powermax VRS17W[plb_2928149_price] (Wet) which also has a higher rating.
