4 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Brush Tool

Most recently released vacuums do not have a brush tool. The Philips FC8578-69 is no exception to this as it too does not have a brush tool.

It is worth also looking at alternative vacuum cleaners which also have a brush tool including the Miele Complete C3 Comfort Edition EcoLine - SGSG1[plb_3951675_price].

Very Short Cable Length

Not Cordless

Like most of the other vacuums that have been around for the last year, the FC8578-69 is not cordless.

6 Other reasons to consider the Philips FC8578-69
