4 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Brush Tool

The Kärcher VC 6 Premium does not have a brush tool, although it is worth noting that most of the other vacuums that have been available for a comparable time to the VC 6 Premium also do not have a brush tool.

Chart Edit

Quite Short Cord Length

The shortest cord length of vacuum cleaners of a comparable age and type to the VC 6 Premium is 1.5m and the longest is 15m. The VC 6 Premium has a very short cord length (only 2.3 meters) compared to most of the other comparable spec vacuum cleaners that are a similar age to the VC 6 Premium.

Chart Edit

Not Cordless

Most similar spec vacuum cleaners that were launched around the same time as the VC 6 Premium are not cordless. The Kärcher VC 6 Premium is no exception to this as it too is not cordless.

Chart Edit

Only D Hard Floor Cleaning Performance Class

4 Other reasons to consider the Kärcher VC 6 Premium

Average Weight

At 6.6 kilograms, the Kärcher VC 6 Premium has a relatively standard weight compared to most of the other vacuums of this type and age.

If you would consider a vacuum with a heavier weight then you might want to look at the AEG ASP7120 (£112.22) (6.4kg), the Hoover PU71EN01001 (£82.99) (6.5kg), or the Numatic Henry Hoover HVR200A (6.6kg).

Average Operating Radius

With an operating radius of 10 meters, the VC 6 Premium has a fairly standard operating radius compared to most of the other low maximum input power vacuums that have been around for a comparable time to the VC 6 Premium.

We compared all the other 10m operating radius vacuums to this vacuum cleaner and we think because of it's better review score, the Samsung VC4000 (£89.99), and the Miele Complete C2 Celebration is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a vacuum cleaner with a bigger operating radius then you might want to look at the Philips FC9920/69 (£179.99) (11m), or the Electrolux UltraFlex ZUFGREEN (£198.19) (12m).

Dry Cleaning Type

The cleaning type of this vacuum cleaner is Dry, which is typical of many vacuums of a similar spec and age to it.

If the cleaning type of this Kärcher vacuum is not good enough for you then you might also want to consider the VAX Powermax VRS18W (£57.49) (Wet), or the Hoover SE71SZ04001 (Wet) which also has a higher rating.
