4 Reasons For

Light

The Philips FC8120 is one of the lighter medium maximum input power vacuums that are a similar age to the FC8120 (only 4 kilograms) amongst similar spec vacuums of this age. The average weight of medium maximum input power vacuums that have been available for around the same time as the FC8120 is 6.1kg, and the weights range from 660g to 11kg.

There are a number of alternative 4kg heavy vacuums currently available which you might also want to consider including the Dyson DC36 which has better reviews.

If you would consider a vacuum cleaner with a heavier weight then you might want to look at the Philips FC832 (£76.49) (4.2kg).
