Kärcher released the CV 38/2 in December 2014.


Price

Expensive

After checking the price of 101 vacuum cleaners that were released more than two years ago they range in price from £30 to £840. We think that this Kärcher vacuum cleaner looks expensive compared to other vacuum cleaners that were released more than two years ago.


Weight & Dimensions

Heavy

With a weight of 9.5 kilograms, the CV 38/2 is one of the heavier high maximum input power vacuums that are a comparable age to this vacuum amongst high maximum input power vacuums of this age. High maximum input power vacuums that were released more than two years ago have weights of between 5g and 110kg, and the average weight is 7.2kg.

If you would consider a vacuum cleaner with a heavier weight then you might want to look at the Makita VC2510LX1 (£309.88) (10.5kg and cheaper), or the Kärcher MV6 (£251.39) (9.1kg and cheaper).

Power

1,200 Watt Maximum Input Power

This is a 1,200 Watt vacuum cleaner.

We compared this vacuum to all the other 1,200W vacuum cleaners and we think the Numatic PPH320A (£284.08) which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If this vacuum cleaner maximum input power is too low for you then you might want to look at the Metabo ASR 25 L SC (£259) (1,400W) which is also cheaper.
