The Philips FC9197 does not have a brush tool, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other vacuums of a similar type and age to the FC9197 also do not have a brush tool.

Alternative vacuum cleaners which also have a brush tool that you might also want to consider include the Siemens VSQ8SIL66A[plb_2769339_price], or the Miele Compact C2 Allergy[plb_2538534_price] which also has a higher rating.

Expensive

The price range of vacuum cleaners of a comparable age and spec is from £51 to £611. We think that this low maximum input power vacuum looks expensive compared to other vacuum cleaners of a comparable age and spec.

Not Cordless
