Maureen Douglas wrote on Amazon “The vacuum's lightweight and flexibility is a godsend for a young 71 year old!” in her review of the Bosch BCH61840GB and scored it 4 stars. Last year Mick M scored the product 4 stars and wrote on Amazon “Easy to clean, lightweight, looks smart, holds charge well, stands upright on its own” in their review of the Bosch BCH61840GB.

Unlike most of the other vacuum cleaners of a similar spec and age to the BCH61840GB which do not have a brush tool, the BCH61840GB has a brush tool.

Chart Edit

Good Suction

A few Bosch BCH61840GB reviewers thought the product had good suction. Jenny Lodge rated it 5 stars and she mentioned on Amazon “Roller easy to clean, better suction on hard floor”. Len Ross wrote in his review “The Bosch is nice and light and suction is good enough for quick runarounds”.

Portable

Some Bosch BCH61840GB owners who reviewed the product thought it was easy to move around.

Bosch Vacuum Cleaners Have Good Reviews

Bosch has good average ratings for its vacuums as well as across its entire vacuum cleaner range compared to other brands.

Chart

Acceptable Noise Level

One customer wrote in their reviews that this vacuum cleaner was quiet. G. Edwards wrote on Amazon “It's light, quiet, cable free”.

Good Product Quality

A number of Bosch BCH61840GB owners who reviewed it agreed that it was good quality. Bobstob said on Amazon “A great investment and a quality cordless stick vacuum” in their review of the Bosch BCH61840GB. Justinitus mentioned “All in all, I'm very pleased with this - it's simple, powerful, well made and performs extremely well with no fancy frippery or bright purple toy-like plastics” in their review of the Bosch BCH61840GB and gave this vacuum cleaner a score of 5 stars.

Easy to Empty

One person mentioned that it was easy to empty. Bobstob mentioned in their review of the Bosch BCH61840GB three years ago “It is easy to empty the dust canister” and scored the product 5 stars.

Good Battery Life

One Bosch BCH61840GB owner reckoned that this vacuum cleaner had a good battery life. Mrs Glynis Harding mentioned in her Bosch BCH61840GB review three years ago “Battery life is very good and recharging does not take long” and scored it 5 stars.

Cordless

The BCH61840GB is cordless, which is unusual. Most of the other vacuum cleaners of this spec and age are not cordless.

We compared this vacuum to all the other cordless vacuums and we think the Hoover UNP252C001[plb_3092246_price], and the Bosch BBH21622[plb_3288905_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

3 Reasons Against

A Bit Expensive

One person thought the Bosch BCH61840GB was not cheap. Two years ago Len Ross wrote “The Bosch with hose attachments is much more expensive and reviews suggest they are awkward to set up” but in spite of that he still gave it a score of 4 stars.

Poor Support

One person considered that it did not have good technical guidance. Hussein wrote on Amazon “The only thing I did not like is the manual - not easy reading.” in their review of the Bosch BCH61840GB.

Not Cheap

The price range of vacuums of a comparable type and age is from £44 to £10,001. We think that this Bosch vacuum looks expensive compared to other vacuums of a comparable type and age.

3 Other reasons to consider the Bosch BCH61840GB

Dry Cleaning Type

The cleaning type of this vacuum is Dry, which is typical of many vacuums that have been on the market for more than a year.

There are a number of alternative Dry vacuum cleaners currently available that you might want to consider including a cheaper vacuum cleaner such as the VAX Powermax VRS30CG[plb_2928154_price], or the Sebo Felix Pet ECO[plb_2975582_price] or you might consider a better rated vacuum cleaner such as the Sebo Felix Navy ECO[plb_2975574_price].
