5 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Brush Tool

Most vacuums of a comparable spec and age to the BGS4 do not have a brush tool. The Bosch BGS4 is no exception to this as it too does not have a brush tool.

It is worth considering alternative vacuums which also have a brush tool including the TriStar SZ-1950[plb_2764134_price], the Numatic Henry Hoover HVR200-11[plb_3799744_price], or the Princess Power DeLuxe[plb_2766213_price] which also has a higher rating.

Chart Edit

Not Cordless

The Bosch BGS4 is not cordless. Most of the other vacuums that are a similar age to the BGS4 are also not cordless.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Dust Capacity

The average dust capacity of vacuums of a comparable age and type to the BGS4 is 3.4L, and the dust capacitys range from 0.24L to 10L. At only 1.9 liters, the Bosch BGS4 has a quite small dust capacity compared to most of the other vacuums of this age and type.

Chart Edit

4 Other reasons to consider the Bosch BGS4

Chart Edit

The cleaning type of this vacuum is Dry, which is typical of many low maximum input power vacuums that were launched more than a year ago.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other Dry vacuums currently available including because of it's better review score, the TriStar SZ-1950[plb_2764134_price], the Princess Power DeLuxe[plb_2766213_price], or the Hoover Telios Plus TE70[plb_2822797_price].

Average Operating Radius

At 9.2 meters, the Bosch BGS4 has a pretty typical operating radius compared to most of the other vacuum cleaners of this age and type.

If this low maximum input power vacuum operating radius is too small for you then you might also want to look at the VC4000[pl_2958660_price] (10m), or the F500[pl_2848956_price] (10.5m) both from Samsung or the Bosch BGL3A230B[plb_3223224_price] (10m) which also has a higher rating.
