4 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Brush Tool

Like most of the other vacuum cleaners of this spec and age, the Philips FC872 does not have a brush tool.

We compared this vacuum to all the other vacuums with a brush tool and we think the Miele Complete C3 Silence[plb_2437121_price], or the Siemens VSQ8SIL66A[plb_2769339_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
