Key Features

This measures the power level of the vacuum cleaner, rated in watts.

The input power directly links to the suction power of the vacuum - a higher power means more suction, which means more efficient cleaning.

Operating Radius

The radius is a meausrement from the centre to the circumference (edge) of a circle or sphere. It is equal to half the diameter.

Noise Level

This denotes how much noise the vacuum cleaner makes while it's running.

A quieter vacuum makes for a nicer cleaning experience, and you're less likely to annoy your neighbours!

Weight

The weight of the vacuum cleaner, including all attachments that fit onto the device.

A lighter weight makes the vacuum easier to push, and makes carrying it up and down stairs less of a chore.
