Has a Brush Tool

The Air Compact C88-AM-B has a brush tool. Most of the other comparable spec vacuum cleaners that are a similar age to this vacuum cleaner also have a brush tool.

We compared this vacuum cleaner to all the other vacuums with a brush tool and we think the TriStar SZ-2131 (£89.12) which is cheaper is also worth considering.

It is worth considering alternative vacuum cleaners which also have a brush tool including the Rowenta RO52 (£111.29).
