6 Reasons For

Good Brand

We calculated the average reviews for all Kärcher vacuums and also specifically for Kärcher high maximum input power vacuums and found that in both cases Kärcher had good reviews.

Fairly High Suction Power

Across all the vacuums of this age and spec the suction power range from 170W to 2,200W, and the average suction power is 600W. The Kärcher T12-1 has one of the higher suction power (1,300 Watt) amongst high maximum input power vacuums of this age.

If this Kärcher vacuum suction power is too low for you then you might want to look at the Miele Complete C3 PowerLine[plb_2476480_price] (1,400W and higher rated).

£9.83 Price Drop

The T12-1 has dropped in price by £9.83 in the last few weeks.

Very Long Cord Length

The Kärcher T12-1 has one of the longest cord lengths (12 meters) amongst vacuum cleaners of this age. The cord lengths of comparable spec vacuums that are a similar age to the T12-1 range from 2.1m to 15m, and the average cord length is 6.8m.

Chart Edit

Fairly Large Dust Capacity

The Kärcher T12-1 has a quite large dust capacity (12 liters) compared to most of the other comparable spec vacuum cleaners that have been available for a similar time to the T12-1. The dust capacities of high maximum input power vacuums that have been on the market for a similar time to the T12-1 range from 0.3L to 83L.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The noise levels of vacuums of this age and spec range from 57dB to 85dB. When compared to other high maximum input power vacuums that were released more than two years ago, the noise level of the Kärcher T12-1 of only 61 decibels is one of the quietest.

If you don't mind having a louder noise level then you might also want to look at the AEG UCORIGIN[plb_1721344_price] (79dB and cheaper), or the Sebo Airbelt K1 Pet[plb_1724680_price] (78dB and cheaper).

2 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Brush Tool

Most vacuums of a comparable age and spec to the T12-1 do not have a brush tool. The Kärcher T12-1 is no exception to this as it too does not have a brush tool.

Alternative vacuums which also have a brush tool that you might want to consider include the S5261 Cat & Dog[pl_2476482_price], or the S6210 Power[pl_1786797_price] both from Miele which is also cheaper.

Not Cordless

Like most of the other high maximum input power vacuums that have been available for more than two years, the Kärcher T12-1 is not cordless.

3 Other reasons to consider the Kärcher T12-1

Average Weight

With a weight of 6.6 kilograms, the Kärcher T12-1 has a relatively average weight compared to most of the other vacuum cleaners that have been around for more than two years.

Other vacuums with a heavier weight that you might want to look at include the Sebo Airbelt K1 Pet[plb_1724680_price] (5.5kg) which is also cheaper.

Average Vacuum Suction

At 24.4 kilopascals, the Kärcher T12-1 has a pretty standard vacuum suction compared to most of the other vacuum cleaners of this age and spec.

If you want a higher vacuum suction then you might want to look at the Samsung VC21F50[plb_2042270_price] (28.6kPa and higher rated).
