2 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Brush Tool

The UH70400 does not have a brush tool, although it is worth noting that most of the other vacuum cleaners of this age and spec also do not have a brush tool.

There are a number of alternative vacuums which also have a brush tool that you might also want to look at including the Philips FC852[plb_2376938_price], the Kawasaki K-VCW 1250-20L[plb_2190745_price], or the DeLonghi XL125[plb_2530191_price] which is also higher rated.

Not Cordless

The UH70400 is not cordless. Most of the other medium maximum input power vacuums that were launched around the same time as the UH70400 are also not cordless.

If you are looking for a vacuum that is cordless then you might want to look at the RO7837[pl_1859772_price], or the RO57[pl_2359190_price] both from Rowenta or the VAX W86-DP-A[plb_2981455_price].

We compared this vacuum cleaner to all the other Dry vacuum cleaners and we think because of it's better review score, the Numatic HVR200-22[plb_421130_price], the Miele Complete C1 Parquet[plb_2538533_price], and the TriStar SZ-2135[plb_2531664_price] is also worth considering.
