5 Reasons For

Has a Brush Tool

The Philips FC832 has a brush tool, unlike most of the other vacuums of this age and type which do not have a brush tool.

It may also be worth considering one of the other vacuums with a brush tool currently available including cheaper vacuum cleaners such as the Bestron Ecosenzo[plb_2508553_price], or the Nilfisk Buddy II 12[plb_2382193_price].
