4 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Brush Tool

The Classic 55 does not have a brush tool, although it is worth noting that most of the other vacuum cleaners of this type and age also do not have a brush tool.

We compared all the other vacuums which also have a brush tool to this vacuum cleaner and we think the Miele Comp[plb_2938537_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
