3 Reasons For

Fairly Long Cord Length

Across all the similar spec vacuum cleaners that are a comparable age to the U-40 the cord lengths range from 2.5m to 12m, and the average cord length is 7.2m. The Thorne Electric U-40 has one of the longer cord lengths (10 meters) amongst low maximum input power vacuums of this age.

Chart Edit

Fairly Large Dust Capacity

When compared to other vacuum cleaners of a similar age and spec to the U-40 that we have assessed the dust capacity of, the Thorne Electric U-40's dust capacity of 17 liters is one of the largest. The dust capacities of low maximum input power vacuums that were released more than two years ago range from 0.1L to 100L, and the average dust capacity is 3.8L.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The noise levels of comparable spec vacuum cleaners that have been around for more than two years range from 50dB to 89dB. The Thorne Electric U-40 has one of the quietest noise levels (only 63.3 decibels) amongst low maximum input power vacuums of this age.
