7 Reasons For

Reasonably Priced

Some people wrote in their reviews that it was good value for money. Donna Michelle Robinson mentioned “Price reasonable” in her Hoover Globe GL71 review however despite that she only gave the Hoover Globe GL71 a rating of 2 stars. Graham Kennedy mentioned “Good value for the money” in his review of this vacuum cleaner. Graham Kennedy also wrote “I wouldn't recommend this for an old person who wasn't too strong! Good value for money though”.

Fairly Big Operating Radius

At 13 meters, the Globe GL71 has a quite big operating radius compared to most of the other vacuum cleaners of a similar spec and age to the Globe GL71. The average operating radius of vacuums that were released more than two years ago is 12m, and the operating radiuss range from 5m to 89m.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 13m operating radius vacuum cleaners currently available including the Bosch BSG81000[plb_1875674_price], the Dirt Devil M3310[plb_1908286_price], or the Siemens VSQ5X12M1[plb_2348453_price] which has better reviews.

If this vacuum operating radius is too small for you then you might want to look at the BSGL5ZOO2[pl_2530995_price] (15m), or the BGL8ZOO[pl_2651844_price] (15m) both from Bosch or the TriStar SZ-1930[plb_2531319_price] (15m) which is also higher rated.

11 Reasons Against

User Reviews Are Poor

On average, based on 35 user reviews the average user rating of this vacuum is 61 out of 100. That puts this Hoover vacuum in the bottom 15% of all the vacuum cleaners of a similar age and spec.

Does Not Have a Brush Tool

The Globe GL71 does not have a brush tool, although keep in mind that most of the other vacuum cleaners of a similar age and spec to the Globe GL71 also do not have a brush tool.

We think you might also be interested in other vacuums which also have a brush tool including the Numatic HVR200-22[plb_421130_price], the Bomann BS 9011 CB[plb_2543076_price], or the Miele Complete C1 Parquet[plb_2538533_price] which also has a higher rating.
