3 Reasons For

HEPA 14 HEPA Class

The Flex VCE 45 has a better HEPA class than most high maximum input power vacuums that have been available for more than two years. This Flex vacuum cleaner has a HEPA 14 HEPA class, whereas most vacuum cleaners of a similar age and type to it have a HEPA 13 HEPA class.

A HEPA 14 HEPA class is in fact the best HEPA class across all vacuums of a comparable spec and age to the VCE 45.

The worst HEPA class amongst comparable types of vacuum cleaner is HEPA 10.

Very Big Dry Dust Capacity

The average dry dust capacity of similar spec vacuum cleaners that have been on the market for a comparable time to the VCE 45 is 7.7L. The Flex VCE 45 has one of the biggest dry dust capacity (43 liters) amongst high maximum input power vacuums of this age.

Chart Edit

Fairly High Airflow Rate

The Flex VCE 45 has one of the higher airflow rate (3,660 liters per minute) amongst comparable spec vacuums of this age. The lowest airflow rate of high maximum input power vacuums that have been available for around the same time as the VCE 45 is 0.2l/min, the highest is 4,500l/min, and the average airflow rate is 2,200l/min.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Brush Tool

The Flex VCE 45 does not have a brush tool, although keep in mind that most of the other vacuum cleaners of this spec and age also do not have a brush tool.

Other vacuum cleaners which also have a brush tool that you might also want to consider include the Miele Steel Design[plb_1786818_price].

Very Low Vacuum Suction

The lowest vacuum suction of vacuums of a similar type and age to the VCE 45 is 16kPa, the highest is 250kPa, and the average vacuum suction is 30kPa. With a vacuum suction of only 23 kilopascals, the Flex VCE 45 has a fairly low vacuum suction compared to most of the other comparable spec vacuum cleaners that came out around the same time as the VCE 45.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 23kPa suction vacuums currently available including the Makita 447MX[plb_1921883_price] which is cheaper.

If you would prefer a higher vacuum suction then you might want to consider the Kärcher NT 65-2 AP[plb_2986322_price] (25.4kPa) which is also cheaper.

Not Cheap

We think this vacuum looks expensive compared to other high maximum input power vacuums that were released more than two years ago. We checked 80 high maximum input power vacuums that were released more than two years ago and they range in price from £53 to £996.

Not Cordless

Most vacuum cleaners that came out more than two years ago are not cordless. The Flex VCE 45 is no exception to this as it too is not cordless.

Chart Edit

Heavy

The weights of vacuums of this type and age range from 5.7g to 110kg, and the average weight is 7.1kg. With a weight of 13.5 kilograms, the Flex VCE 45 is one of the heaviest high maximum input power vacuums that have been available for a comparable time to the VCE 45 amongst high maximum input power vacuums of this age.

Other vacuum cleaners with a heavier weight that you might want to look at include the Makita 447MX[plb_1921883_price] (15.8kg) which is also cheaper.
