3 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Brush Tool

Most low maximum input power vacuum cleaners that have been on the market for more than two years do not have a brush tool. The Bosch GL40 is no exception to this as it too does not have a brush tool.

Alternative vacuum cleaners which also have a brush tool that you might also want to consider include the Samsung VC06H70[plb_2572164_price], the Hoover Telios Plus TE[plb_2557716_price], or the Taurus Civic 2500[plb_2724582_price] which is also cheaper.

There are a number of alternative Dry vacuums currently available that you might also want to look at including cheaper vacuum cleaners such as the Nilfisk Bravo Energy[plb_2437338_price], or the AEG Vampyr CE PW24TRE+[plb_2495204_price].

4 Other reasons to consider the Bosch GL40

Average Operating Radius

The Bosch GL40 has a pretty typical operating radius (10 meters) compared to most of the other low maximum input power vacuum cleaners that have been on the market for more than two years.

We compared all the other 10m operating radius vacuum cleaners to this vacuum cleaner and we think the AEG Vampyr CE PW24TRE+[plb_2495204_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Vacuums with a bigger operating radius that might be worth considering include the Numatic Harry Hoover HHR200-A2[plb_2665505_price] (27m) which also has a higher rating.
