8 Reasons For

Has a Brush Tool

The Philips FC917 has a brush tool, which is unusual. Most of the other vacuums of a similar spec and age to the FC917 do not have a brush tool.

Chart Edit

Quite High Vacuum Suction

With a vacuum suction of 34 kilopascals, the Philips FC917 has a fairly high vacuum suction compared to most of the other vacuums that were launched more than two years ago. The average vacuum suction of similar spec vacuums that have been available for around the same time as the FC917 is 30kPa.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Operating Radius

Across all the vacuum cleaners of this type and age the operating radii range from 2.5m to 27m. With an operating radius of 12 meters, the Philips FC917 has a quite big operating radius compared to most of the other high maximum input power vacuums that were released more than two years ago.

If this high maximum input power vacuum cleaner operating radius is too small for you then you might also want to consider the Miele S8320 Total Care (£209.50) (13m and higher rated).

Most of the similar spec vacuum cleaners that have been around for a comparable time to the FC917 only have between 2 and 12 air filtration stages, however this Philips vacuum has 13 air filtration stages.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Cord Length

With a cord length of 9 meters, the Philips FC917 has a fairly long cord length compared to most of the other vacuum cleaners of a similar age and type to the FC917. Across all the vacuums that were released more than two years ago the cord lengths range from 2.1m to 15m, and the average cord length is 6.8m.

Chart Edit
