Has a Brush Tool

The Athlet BCH625KTGB has a brush tool. Most of the other high maximum input power vacuums that have been available for more than two years also have a brush tool.

We compared this vacuum to all the other vacuums with a brush tool and we think cheaper vacuum cleaners such as the Bosch BGL3A122, the Rowenta RO5253EA (£112.85), and the Hoover WindTunnel (£100.48) are also worth considering.
