3 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Brush Tool

The Rowenta RO6242EA does not have a brush tool. Most of the other vacuums of this spec and age also do not have a brush tool.

We compared this vacuum to all the other vacuum cleaners with a brush tool and we think the Rowenta RO 6432 EA (£223.30), or the Miele Compact C2 Hardfloor is also worth considering.
