4 Reasons For

Fairly High Vacuum Suction

With a vacuum suction of 33 kilopascals, the Philips FC863 has a quite high vacuum suction compared to most of the other vacuum cleaners that came out around the same time as the FC863. Vacuums of this type and age have vacuum suctions of between 0.24kPa and 250kPa.

Vacuums with a higher vacuum suction that might be worth considering include the Metabo ASR 35 M (£269.65) (248kPa).

Dry Cleaning Type

The cleaning type of this vacuum is Dry, which is typical of many vacuums that are a comparable age to it.

There are a number of alternative Dry vacuum cleaners currently available that you might also want to consider including the Miele Complete C2 (£119.00) which has better reviews.

Narrow

Vacuums of a comparable age and type to the FC863 have widths of between 25mm and 880mm, and the average width is 380mm. The Philips FC863 is one of the narrower vacuum cleaners that have been on the market for around the same time as the FC863 (only 304 millimeters) amongst similar spec vacuums of this age.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Brush Tool

The Philips FC863 does not have a brush tool. Most of the other high maximum input power vacuums that have been on the market for around the same time as the FC863 also do not have a brush tool.

Chart Edit

Not Cordless

Like most of the other similar spec vacuums that have been available for around the same time as the FC863, the Philips FC863 is not cordless.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Airflow Rate

Across all the vacuum cleaners of a comparable spec and age to the FC863 the airflow rate range from 37l/min to 7,200l/min. At only 37 liters per minute, the Philips FC863 has a quite low airflow rate compared to most of the other similar spec vacuum cleaners that have been available for a comparable time to the FC863.

Chart Edit

Very Small Dust Capacity

The average dust capacity of similar spec vacuum cleaners that have been on the market for more than a year is 14L, and the dust capacities range from 0.25L to 70L. With a dust capacity of only 1.7 liters, the Philips FC863 has a fairly small dust capacity compared to most of the other vacuums of this spec and age.

4 Other reasons to consider the Philips FC863

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 80 decibels, the Philips FC863 has a pretty typical noise level compared to most of the other comparable spec vacuum cleaners that were released more than a year ago.

Chart Edit

Average Weight

At 6 kilograms, the Philips FC863 has a fairly typical weight compared to most of the other comparable spec vacuum cleaners that were launched more than a year ago.

Chart Edit

Average Operating Radius

At 9 meters, the Philips FC863 has a fairly standard operating radius compared to most of the other high maximum input power vacuums that have been around for more than a year.

If this Philips vacuum cleaner operating radius is too small for you then you might want to look at the Miele Complete C2 (£119.00) (10m and higher rated), or the Hotpoint SLB18AA0 (£69.99) (10m and higher rated).
