3 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Brush Tool

The Thorne Electric U-40 does not have a brush tool, although it is worth noting that most of the other low maximum input power vacuums that were launched more than two years ago also do not have a brush tool.

Chart Edit

Only Dry Cleaning Type

The cleaning type of this vacuum cleaner is Dry, which is the most commonly supported cleaning type on vacuums of a similar type and age to it.

If you would prefer a vacuum with a better cleaning type then you might also want to look at the Hoover CleanJet CJ625[plb_2665907_price] (Wet) which also has a higher rating.

Not Cordless

Like most of the other comparable spec vacuum cleaners that have been around for a similar time to the U-40, the Thorne Electric U-40 is not cordless.
