7 Reasons For

Has a Brush Tool

The Philips FC99 has a brush tool, unlike most of the other vacuums of this age and spec which do not have a brush tool.

Other vacuums with a brush tool currently available which you might want to look at include because of it's better review score, the Philips FC847, or the Dyson DC52.

Alternative vacuum cleaners which also have a brush tool that you might want to consider include the Sebo Airbelt K3 Premium.

Quite Big Operating Radius

With an operating radius of 11 meters, the Philips FC99 has one of the bigger operating radii amongst vacuums of this age. High maximum input power vacuums that were released around the same time as the FC99 have operating radii of between 2.5m and 27m.

We compared all the other 11m operating radius vacuum cleaners to this vacuum and we think a cheaper vacuum such as the Rowenta RO5565 or you might consider a higher rated vacuum such as the Thomas Aqua+ Pet & Family are also worth considering.

Vacuums with a bigger operating radius that might also be worth considering include the Metabo ASR 25 L SC (11.2m and cheaper).
