3 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Brush Tool

Like most of the other vacuum cleaners of a similar type and age to the GL40, the Bosch GL40 does not have a brush tool.

Chart Edit

Only Dry Cleaning Type

The cleaning type of this vacuum cleaner is Dry, which is the most frequently supported cleaning type on low maximum input power vacuums that came out around the same time as it.
