2 Reasons For

Wet Cleaning Type

The FH50240 supports a better cleaning type than most vacuum cleaners that are a similar age to it. This Hoover vacuum supports a Wet cleaning type, whereas most vacuums that were released more than two years ago support a Dry cleaning type.

This vacuum's cleaning type (Wet) is actually the best supported cleaning type across all similar spec vacuums that have been available for around the same time as the FH50240.

Across similar types of vacuum the worst supported cleaning type is Dry&Wet.

We compared this vacuum to all the other Wet vacuums and we think the Hoover FH40160 which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

Expensive Compared to Other Vacuums That Have Been Around for More Than Two Years

We checked 61 vacuums that have been around for more than two years and they range in price from £51 to £930. We thought that this vacuum cleaner looks expensive for a vacuum of a similar type and age.

Very Heavy

At 10.2 kilograms, the FH50240 is very heavy compared to most of the other vacuums of a comparable spec and age to the FH50240. The lightest vacuum cleaner of this age and type is 2.1kg heavy, the heaviest is 12kg, and the average weight is 5.3kg.

If you would consider a vacuum cleaner with a heavier weight then you might want to look at the Electrolux ZB3012 (£574.70) (2.5kg).

Not Cordless

Like most of the other vacuums that have been around for around the same time as the FH50240, the FH50240 is not cordless.

Vacuums which are cordless that might be worth looking at include the Electrolux ZB3012 (£574.70).

Quite Short Cord Length

With a cord length of only 6 meters, the FH50240 has a quite short cord length compared to most of the other vacuums of a similar type and age to the FH50240. The cord lengths of vacuums that have been available for a similar time to the FH50240 range from 0.6m to 16m.
