5 Reasons For

Bosch Has Good Reviews for Its Vacuum Cleaners

We calculated the average ratings for all Bosch vacuums and also specifically for Bosch low maximum input power vacuums and found that in both cases Bosch had good ratings compared to other manufacturers.

A Dust Re-Emission Class

This vacuum has an A dust re-emission class, which is typical of many vacuums that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

B Hard Floor Cleaning Performance Class

The BGL3A230 has a B hard floor cleaning performance class which is better than most similar spec vacuum cleaners that were launched more than two years ago. Most vacuum cleaners of a comparable spec and age to it have a C hard floor cleaning performance class. The hard floor cleaning performance class of all vacuum cleaners of this type and age ranges from D (worst) to A (best).

Chart Edit

Quite Large Dust Capacity

The smallest dust capacity of low maximum input power vacuums that have been available for a similar time to the BGL3A230 is 0.1L and the largest is 100L. At 4 liters, the Bosch BGL3A230 has a fairly large dust capacity compared to most of the other vacuum cleaners of a similar age and type to the BGL3A230.

Chart Edit

Quite Light Weight (without Accesories)

Low maximum input power vacuums that have been on the market for more than two years have weight (without accesories)s of between 3.4kg and 6.7kg. With a weight (without accesories) of only 4.3 kilograms, the BGL3A230 has one of the lighter weight (without accesories)s amongst similar spec vacuums of this age.

3 Reasons Against
