4 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Brush Tool

Most vacuum cleaners of this spec and age do not have a brush tool. The Dyson DC51 is no exception to this as it too does not have a brush tool.

Chart Edit

Very Low Suction Power

Across all the vacuums that were released around the same time as the DC51 the suction powers range from 160W to 1,200W, and the average suction power is 520W. The Dyson DC51 has one of the lower suction powers (only 160 Watts) amongst vacuums of this age.

Vacuums with a higher suction power that might be worth looking at include the Dyson DC52 Allergy[plb_2045859_price] (290W).

Very Small Dust Capacity

With a dust capacity of only 0.8 liters, the Dyson DC51 has one of the smaller dust capacitys amongst vacuums of this age. The smallest dust capacity of vacuums that were released more than two years ago is 0.3L, the largest is 100L, and the average dust capacity is 4.3L.

Chart Edit

Not Cordless

Like most of the other vacuums of a similar type and age to the DC51, the Dyson DC51 is not cordless.

If you want a vacuum that is cordless then you might also want to look at the Bosch Athlet BCH625KTGB[plb_2665395_price].
