4 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Brush Tool

The Purepower PU71 does not have a brush tool, although it is worth noting that most of the other comparable spec vacuum cleaners that were launched around the same time as the Purepower PU71 also do not have a brush tool.

We compared this vacuum cleaner to all the other vacuum cleaners with a brush tool and we think the Bestron Ecosenzo[plb_2508553_price], the VAX U89-MA-L[plb_3207793_price], or the Nilfisk Buddy II 12[plb_2382193_price] is also worth considering.

In the last 17 days the Purepower PU71 has increased in price by £13.49.

Not Cordless

The Purepower PU71 is not cordless, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other medium maximum input power vacuum cleaners that have been around for more than two years are also not cordless.

Chart Edit

Very Loud Noise Level

When compared to other vacuums that were launched around the same time as the Purepower PU71 that we have assessed, the Hoover Purepower PU71's noise level of 89 decibels is one of the loudest. The average noise level of medium maximum input power vacuum cleaners that were released more than two years ago is 76dB.

If you are not bothered about having a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Philips FC932[plb_2376948_price] (79dB), the Zelmer Voyager Twix[plb_2546933_price] (80dB), or the Bestron Ecosenzo[plb_2508553_price] (80dB) which also has a higher rating.
