10 Reasons For

Quite Big Operating Radius

With an operating radius of 11 meters, the BGS5POWER1 has a quite big operating radius compared to most of the other similar spec vacuums that were released around the same time as the BGS5POWER1. The operating radiuss of vacuums that are a comparable age to the BGS5POWER1 range from 7.5m to 14m, and the average operating radius is 9.9m.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 11m operating radius vacuum cleaners currently available including because of it's better review score, the Felix Navy ECO[pl_2975574_price], the Felix Pet ECO[pl_2975582_price], or the Felix Royale ECO[pl_2975584_price] all from Sebo.
