Does Not Have a Brush Tool

The BSGL5AL2GB does not have a brush tool, although this is within the context that most of the other vacuum cleaners that have been around for around the same time as the BSGL5AL2GB also do not have a brush tool.

There are a number of alternative vacuum cleaners which also have a brush tool which you might want to consider including the Hoover TE70TE11001[plb_2979651_price], or the Samsung VC07H40[plb_2815304_price].

Poor Support

A few Bosch BSGL5AL2GB owners thought it did not have good technical guidance. Tailor said “It has memory.* It doesn't have a vent in the handle for when it does get stuck.* Instructions confusing as they cover a range of vacuums all with different filters” in their review of this vacuum cleaner.

Difficult to Empty

One Bosch BSGL5AL2GB owner who reviewed this vacuum cleaner reckoned that it was not easy to empty. Tailor mentioned “The bag can actually get full where as our previous (bagless) vacuum needed emptying every few uses” but even so they still gave it a score of 5 stars.

Not Cordless

The Bosch BSGL5AL2GB is not cordless, although this is within the context that most of the other similar spec vacuum cleaners that have been on the market for a comparable time to the BSGL5AL2GB are also not cordless.

4 Other reasons to consider the Bosch BSGL5AL2GB

Average Weight

The BSGL5AL2GB has a pretty standard weight (6.8 kilograms) compared to most of the other vacuums of a comparable age and spec to the BSGL5AL2GB.

If you are not worried about having a heavier weight then you might also want to look at the Hoover SP71[plb_2775363_price] (4.7kg) which is also cheaper.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Dry Cleaning Type

The cleaning type of this vacuum cleaner is Dry, which is the most frequently supported cleaning type on vacuums that have been available for around the same time as it.

We compared this vacuum cleaner to all the other Dry vacuums and we think cheaper vacuums such as the Hoover Lyra LY71[plb_2561774_price] is also worth considering.

If the cleaning type of this Bosch vacuum is not good enough for you then you might also want to look at the VAX Powermax VRS18W[plb_2928150_price] (Wet) which is also cheaper.
