1 Reason For

Very Short

At only 236.22 millimeters, the 3M 497ABF is quite short compared to most of the other vacuum cleaners of a similar age and spec to the 497ABF. The shortest comparable spec vacuum that has been around for around the same time as the 497ABF is 170mm tall and the tallest is 1,300mm.

2 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Brush Tool

The 3M 497ABF does not have a brush tool, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other vacuums of a similar age and spec to the 497ABF also do not have a brush tool.

Chart Edit

Not Cordless

Most vacuums that were released more than two years ago are not cordless. The 3M 497ABF is no exception to this as it too is not cordless.

Vacuum cleaners which are cordless that might also be worth looking at include the Electrolux ZB3012, or the DeLonghi Colombina Cordless.

2 Other reasons to consider the 3M 497ABF

Dry Cleaning Type

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

We compared this vacuum cleaner to all the other Dry vacuum cleaners and we think the Dyson DC52 Allergy which has better reviews; or the DeLonghi Colombina Cordless, and the Hoover SH40070 ($144.99) which is cheaper are also worth considering.

If the cleaning type of this vacuum is too bad for you then you might want to consider the Electrolux ZB3012 (Wet), or the Hoover FH40160 ($125.49) (Wet) which is also cheaper.
