3 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Brush Tool

The Classic 55 does not have a brush tool, although keep in mind that most of the other vacuums that have been available for more than a year also do not have a brush tool.

There are a number of alternative vacuums which also have a brush tool which you might also want to consider including the Hoover CH30000[plb_3121061_price]; or the Dyson DC44[plb_2665422_price].

Not Good in Terms of Size

Two customers said in their reviews that it was not heavy and bulky. A few weeks ago Doha mentioned in their review of the Polti Classic 55 “I next tried it on a heavy curtain.”. Doha also mentioned “Handles heavy duty”.

One Polti Classic 55 reviewer who bought the Polti Classic 55 considered that it was not thick. In October Red On Black wrote on Amazon “The real transformation in terms of use can we the Polti was let loose inside the car” however they still gave it a rating of 4 stars.

One customer who bought it considered that it was not thin. Peter Piper mentioned in October this year “The very fine steam jet just meant I was drawing thin lines on a dirty surface when trying to steam clean larger areas” in his review of the Polti Classic 55.

One Polti Classic 55 reviewer thought the product was not a good body shape. Doha mentioned in their Polti Classic 55 review on Amazon “There aren't any useful markings on the body itself”.

Not Cordless

The Classic 55 is not cordless, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other vacuums that came out around the same time as the Classic 55 are also not cordless.

Vacuums which are cordless that might also be worth looking at include the Electrolux ZB3102[plb_3185337_price], or the Polti SR 25.9_Plus[plb_3145555_price] which is also cheaper.
