Does Not Have a Brush Tool

Most low maximum input power vacuum cleaners that were launched more than a year ago do not have a brush tool. The BGS5SIL2GB is no exception to this as it too does not have a brush tool.

We compared this vacuum to all the other vacuums with a brush tool and we think the Hoover Telios Plus TE70[plb_2822797_price], the Numatic Henry Hoover HVR200-11[plb_3799744_price], or the Princess Power DeLuxe[plb_2766213_price] is also worth considering.

Poor Brush

A few Bosch BGS5SIL2GB owners who purchased it concluded that it did not have a good brush. C. Cassisa wrote “My only criticism is that it doesn't come with the attachment that has the brush that spins round” although they still gave the product an excellent review. Jaykay said on Amazon “I also have difficulty in separating the brush pole from the handle” in their review of the Bosch BGS5SIL2GB and rated it 40 out of 100.

Heavy

The lightest low maximum input power vacuum that has been on the market for around the same time as the BGS5SIL2GB is 5.2g heavy and the heaviest is 13kg. At 8.3 kilograms, the BGS5SIL2GB is fairly heavy compared to most of the other vacuum cleaners of a comparable age and type to the BGS5SIL2GB.
