Hoover Pet Rewind Plus

Hoover Pet Rewind PlusThe Hoover Pet Rewind Plus vacuum is a bagless upright model, designed specifically for animal owners. The exterior is nice looking, but possibly on the bulky side. In this review of the Pet Rewind Plus, I’ll go over this model’s strengths and weaknesses, then decide if it’s worth buying. Currently, it’s selling for around $160 – which is very reasonable when compared to similar models. Here’s a rundown of the main features you’ll find on this unit: a no-scuff bumper, 5 height setting adjustments, a 28 ft power cord, power controls at your fingertips, auto rewind cord, Pet Power Brush, a brush roll with an on and off switch, and this vacuum also features the WindTunnel technology. You do get a 1 year warranty when you buy this model, which is at least something.

OK, onto the negative aspects of the Hoover Pet Rewind Plus. A few users mentioned that their wheels got squeaky after a few times using it. I also wish the power cord were just a little longer. I would have loved a 35 ft cord on this unit, but the one it has isn’t horrible. As I mentioned earlier, I think it’s just a little too bulky. The hose sticks out on the side, and the head is a little bulkier than I would have liked as well. There were a couple random users who said their model broke down after a few months of usage, but I believe this was a bit of a fluke. Overall, I really like the Hoover Pet Rewind Plus vacuum cleaner. It has good suction, and the tools work great. Also, I like that it’s a lot cheaper than some of the competition. I’m giving this unit  4.3 / 5 star rating.

Hoover Elite Cyclonic

Hoover Elite CyclonicThe Hoover Elite Cyclonic is a canister vacuum, which is actually quite stylish. Currently it’s priced around $200, so it’s not super cheap. In my review of the Hoover Elite Cyclonic, I’ll go over this model’s strengths and weaknesses, then decide if it’s a good buy. As I just mentioned, I think they did a wonderful job on the exterior – it looks very stylish and the colors are great. Here’s a quick rundown of the features you’ll get with this unit: motorized brush roll, headlight, retractable power cord, stretch hose, telescoping wand with multiple attachment tools, 12 amp motor, 25 ft power cord, HEPA filter, fingertip controls, and an easy-empty dirt container. What I really like about this vacuum is that it has a fairly long power cord, as well as a decent stretch hose. This gives a lot of breathing room, instead of having to re-plug the cord in every 20 ft.

OK, onto the negative aspects of the Hoover Elite Cyclonic vacuum. Unfortunately, there are a good number of owners of this model out there who’ve had problems with it breaking down. The break down issues range from the cyclonic action no longer works properly, to the stretch hose clogging up. If these incidents were more random, I wouldn’t have a problem. However, there are many owners of this model that have had these types of issues. Also, when it does break down, customer support hasn’t been top-notch. Maybe the manufacturer is working to fix the problems on the Hoover Elite Cyclonic vacuum cleaner – however, I can’t give this model a very good recommendation as is. Overall, I’m giving it a 3.2 / 5 star rating.

Hoover Agility Review

Hoover AgilityThe Hoover Agility vacuum is an upright model, which is also fairly inexpensive. Currently, you can buy it for as low as $90 – even though the list price is $120. In this review of the Hoover Agility vacuum cleaner, I’ll go over the positive and negative aspects of this model, then decide if it’s worth buying. Here’s a quick rundown of the features you’ll find on this unit: dual cyclone technology, 5 height adjustments, a 12 ft hose with wand, headlight, crevice tool, dusting brush, powered hand tool, and a couple on-board tools. I wouldn’t say this vacuum is packed with the greatest features, but it at least covers most of the basics. I do like that it has a couple extra tools, such as the powered hand one.

OK, onto the negative aspects of the Hoover Agility vacuum. First off, the cord is not all that long, and it doesn’t have an auto cord rewind feature. Another issue I have with this model is that it has no brush roll on and off switch. Without the switch, it tends to spread dirt around on bare floors. Also, the materials used to make it are not the highest quality. I’m not saying it’s going to break after your first time using it, but it does seem to be cheaply built. Lastly, the suction power is only so-so. Overall, the Hoover Agility seems to be a slightly above average vacuum cleaner. If you can get it very cheap, it could be a good bargain. However, if you are going to spend $120, I think there are plenty of higher quality models out there. I’m giving it a 3.8 / 5 star rating.

Hoover Windtunnel Air Review

Hoover Windtunnel AirThe Hoover Windtunnel Air vacuum is an upright model, which claims to clean the air going through the filter, so there won’t be a loss of suction power. In this review of the Hoover Windtunnel Air vacuum cleaner, I’ll go over this model’s strengths and weaknesses, then decide if it’s worth the $200 price tag. The exterior looks pretty nice, and somewhat reminds me of a Dyson. I love the fact that you can lay the unit at a 180 degree angle, which really helps to get under beds and furniture. Here’s a quick rundown of the features you’ll get on this model: a deluxe stretch hose with extension wand, 30 ft power cord, fingertip power controls, telescoping handle, rotating brush roll with an on and off switch, and a cyclonic technology which helps clean the air moving through the filter. This cyclonic action is supposed to keep it from losing suction, and I think they accomplished this to some degree. I also like the fact that this vacuum weighs only 12 lbs. This is light enough to drag up and down stairs with ease.

Now I’ll go over the negative aspects of the Hoover Windtunnel Air vacuum. One thing I don’t like is the number of attachments that come with this unit. Basically, all you get is a stretch hose and the wand attachment – which isn’t much to speak of. I also wish it had an automatic cord rewind, but I suppose it’s not that big of a deal. Lastly, I think the main reason this model is so light is because it’s made with pretty cheap materials. I don’t think it will fall apart or anything, but you can tell it’s not made with the highest grade materials. However, I don’t mean to sound too pessimistic about the Hoover Windtunnel Air vacuum cleaner, because it’s really a good little unit. It has great suction, is very stylish, lightweight, and has a fair amount of features. Overall, I’m giving this model a 4 / 5 star rating.

Hoover Windtunnel Pet Bagged Review

Hoover Windtunnel Pet BaggedThe Hoover Windtunnel Pet Bagged vacuum is a nice looking upright model, which is geared specifically towards the multitudes of animal owners. In this review of the Hoover Windtunnel Pet Bagged vacuum cleaner, I’ll go over the strengths and weaknesses of this model – then decide if it’s worth the $150 price tag. As I mentioned earlier, I think the exterior on this unit looks pretty good. But, it doesn’t quite have the finesse of a Dyson. Here’s a quick rundown of the features found on this model: an air powered pet hand tool, pet upholstery tool, a stretch hose with extension wand, a hands off clean-drop bag release system, fingertip power controls, a motorized brush roll with on and off button, 5 height adjustments, 30 ft power cord, HEPA media filter, a headlight and this vacuum also has the patented Windtunnel technology. On paper, this model has almost everything you would need to get that pet hair out of your house. Next, we’ll see if everything works as well as it sounds.

OK, onto the negative aspects of the Hoover Windtunnel Pet Bagged vacuum. First off, when you are using the hand-held pet tool, the stretch hose tends to shrink in size. So in reality, you only have about 6 ft of hose instead of 12. Another thing is that the push button power switch can be a little hard to press. A couple more items I don’t like about this model: you have to buy bags which can get expensive, only one short extension wand is included, and the suction power is just above average. All in all, I do still like the Hoover Windtunnel Pet Bagged vacuum cleaner. There are definitely better models out there, but most of them are double or triple the price of this one. At the $150 price point, you won’t find a much better unit than this – which is why I’m giving it a 4.3 / 5 star rating.

Hoover Duros Review

Hoover DurosThe Hoover Duros vacuum is a canister model currently selling for around $150. The name suggests power and durability, but we’ll see if that’s actually true. In this review of the Hoover Duros vacuum cleaner, I’ll go over this model’s strengths and weaknesses, then decide if it’s worth investing your money on. As far as features go, here’s a quick rundown of what to expect: a 360 degree swivel feature, 18 ft power cord, brushed edge cleaning, three height adjustments, headlight, dusting brush and crevice tool, auto cord rewind, a 14 inch head, an allergen-reducing bag filter and also a bag indicator light. This isn’t a bad set of features on this vacuum – and, I really like the 360 degree swivel feature. Also, it only weighs 22 lbs, which is a little below average for a canister model.

Now, onto the negative aspects of the Hoover Duros vacuum. I’m not really sure what the manufacturer meant by it’s name, but unfortunately it is not very durable. The exterior materials seem a little cheap, and some users say their units actually broke. A couple other things: I think the wand is a little too heavy, the tool caddy is a little weak, and the power cord is too short. All in all, the Hoover Duros vacuum cleaner is lacking in some areas. However, the suction power is good and it does have some other nice features. Even with it’s issues, I’m still giving this little model a 3.5 / 5 star rating.

Hoover Pet Cyclonic Review

Hoover Pet CyclonicThe Hoover Pet Cyclonic vacuum is part of the Windtunnel family, but geared specifically for pet owners. I think the maroon and gray colored exterior looks classy. In this review of the Hoover Pet Cyclonic vacuum cleaner, I’ll go over the best and worst this model has to offer, then decide if it’s worth the $170 asking price. First off, here’s a rundown of the better features found on this unit: a hand-held turbo brush powered by the suction, lifetime HEPA filter, headlight, 28 ft power cord, automatic cord rewind, 1-touch brush roll control, dual stage cyclonic technology, a bottom-release dirt container, wand and stretch hose, 15 inch cleaning path, crevice tool and a dusting brush. This is not a bad set of features on this vacuum, but it’s not overly impressive either.

OK, onto the negative aspects of the Hoover Pet Cyclonic vacuum. First off, the filter can be a little hard to get to and a pain to clean off. Also, I’m not a huge fan of the hand-held turbo brush. Since it’s one of the main selling points of this model, I was hoping it would work spectacularly, but it’s just average in my opinion. Another thing is that it’s a little heavy, especially if you are trying to lug it up and down stairs. It would also have been nice to have an extra extension for the hose.The dirt container can be a little messy to empty as well. Overall, I’m quite impressed with the suction power and ease of use with the Hoover Pet Cyclonic vacuum cleaner. It does have some short comings, but it’s still a pretty good unit. I’m giving it a 3.8 / 5 star rating.

Hoover Blue Elite Cyclonic Canister Review

Hoover Blue Elite Cyclonic CanisterThe Hoover Blue Elite Cyclonic canister vacuum is a bagless model, which is currently selling for around $200. The styling on it is tremendous, I really like the color scheme. In this review of the Hoover Blue Elite Cyclonic canister vacuum cleaner, I’ll go over the strengths and weaknesses of this model, then decide it it’s actually worth the price tag. First off, here’s a rundown of features you can expect to find on this unit: extra long hose, back-saver wand, 25 ft power cord, HEPA filter, motorized brush roll with fingertip controls, easy empty dirt container, retractable power cord, headlight, crevice tool, a flat out head, and it has a 13 inch cleaning path. Overall, this is pretty good feature set.

OK, now I’ll go over the negative aspects of the Hoover Blue Elite Cyclonic canister vacuum. First off, emptying the canister can be messy and a pain. Another thing is that it’s on the heavier side, at 25 lbs. In my opinion, the attachments aren’t that great either. A couple users have had problems with the retractable power cord. Also, there are a few people who say the suction power goes down after a few months of use. While I think the last two claims could be true, I also would consider them somewhat of a fluke, since most users don’t have problems with these things. Overall, I think the Hoover Blue Elite Cyclonic canister vacuum cleaner is a decent enough model, although nothing too special. I’m giving it a 3.8 / 5 star rating.

Hoover WindTunnel Rewind Review

Hoover WindTunnel RewindThe Hoover WindTunnel Rewind vacuum is a classic upright model with a lot of style, and it’s even reasonably priced – at around $130. In this review of the Hoover WindTunnel Rewind, we’ll go over this vacuum cleaner’s strengths and weaknesses. Here’s a quick rundown of the features you’ll find on this model: HEPA filter, 27 ft retractable power cord, motorized and adjustable-height brush roll, headlight, a 13.5 inch cleaning path, mini turbine head and a couple other on-board attachment tools. The suction power on this vacuum is very good, but not quite on the level of a Dyson. I also like the fact that this is a bagless model, so you won’t have to keep buying expensive bags.

Now we’ll go over the negative aspects of the Hoover WindTunnel Rewind vacuum. The attachment wand seems a little short to me. And, I don’t like where the cord is stored on the unit – seems like it’s too low. Another thing is that it doesn’t do edges very well, but at least you can use the hand tool for tighter areas. Quite a few people have had problems with the belt breaking within a short time, which I find very unacceptable. Other than those couple issues, I can’t really think of any problems with the Hoover WindTunnel Rewind. It’s a pretty good unit for the price you pay. I’m giving it a 3.8 / 5 star rating.

Hoover Windtunnel Pet Rewind Review

Hoover Windtunnel Pet RewindThe Hoover Windtunnel Pet Rewind vacuum is an upright, bagless model with a lot of style. It’s currently selling for around $160, so we’ll review the Hoover Windtunnel Pet Rewind vacuum and see if it’s actually worth the asking price. First off, here’s a rundown of the best features found on this model: motorized brush roll, adjustable height on the brush roll, a 13.5 inch cleaning path, HEPA filter, pet contour tool, pet turbobrush, retractable 27 ft power cord, folding handle, and a couple other cleaning attachments. As I mentioned earlier, I really like the look of this vacuum. The red color is stylish, but this model also comes in blue. I also like that it has a scuff guard bumper to keep it from getting all scratched up.

Now I’ll take a look at the negative aspects of the Hoover Windtunnel Pet Rewind vacuum cleaner. The canister seems to be the main complaint amongst users. If you suck up a lot of pet hair, you may have to dig it out of the canister after you finish. Also, the canister is a little small if you have a bigger house. The cord rewind seems a little on the cheap side – like it could possibly break after a few months use. Other than those minor issues, I don’t have much to complain about with the Hoover Windtunnel Pet Rewind. I’m giving this vacuum a 4 / 5 star rating.

Hoover UH70120 Review

Hoover UH70120The Hoover UH70120 vacuum is a bagless upright model, which sells for right around $100. The overall look of this model is pretty nice, and I really like the green-colored exterior. In this review of the Hoover UH70120 vacuum cleaner, I’ll go over the best and worst features this model has to offer. First off, here’s a rundown of the better features you’ll find: a 27 ft power cord, power controls at your fingertips, 5-height adjustment, cord rewind, a system check indicator light, a regular filter that can be rinsed off and a HEPA filter, an 8 ft stretch hose, and a couple on-board tools. I also love how light this model is – just 16.5 lbs. Plus, if you ever need to change the belt, it’s pretty easy to get to and replace.

Now, onto the negative aspects of the Hoover UH70120 vacuum cleaner. If you are sucking up a lot of pet hair, beware that the canister will be harder to empty. You’ll most likely have to pull it out by hand, as it get’s stuck in there. Also, I wish the roller brush had an off button. It can spread dirt around on bare floors, if you aren’t careful. Another issue that quite a number of users had with this vacuum was with the belt coming off or breaking. I know this won’t happen to everyone, but it does seem to happen often enough. Overall, I like the Hoover UH70120 well enough, and am giving it a 3.8 / 5 star rating.

Hoover Purely Clean Vacuum Review

Hoover Purely CleanThe Hoover Purely Clean vacuum cleaner is a bagless upright model which costs right around $120. In this review, I’ll go over the best features on the Hoover Purely Clean vacuum, and also it’s biggest weaknesses. As far as looks go, I think this model is beautiful. The design gives it the look of a much more expensive model. Here’s a rundown of the features you’ll find on this vac: cord rewind, folding handle, bottom release dirt cup, multi-height adjustments, 12 amp motor, and a rinse-able HEPA filter. This model also comes with a few tools for cleaning curtains, stairs and upholstery.

Unfortunately, the Hoover Purely Clean vacuum does have a couple negative aspects. I think the main issue customers have with this model is the durability of it. It’s definitely not made of the highest quality materials, but I wouldn’t say it’s cheap either. It’s also a little troublesome using the hose, because this vacuum has such strong suction that it pulls the unit too close. I’ve heard of a small percentage of users that had the Hoover Purely Clean break down on them within a year. While I don’t think this is common, it is definitely something to think about. Overall, I’m giving this vacuum cleaner a 3.8 / 5 star rating.

Hoover LiNX Vacuum Review

Hoover LiNXThe Hoover LiNX vacuum cleaner is a super thin model from the Platinum Collection set. In this review, I’ll go over some of the Hoover LiNX vacuum’s best features, as well as it’s worst. From a purely aesthetic point of view, this model is spectacular. Here’s a rundown of it’s best features: 11 inch cleaning path, Energy Star approved, easy empty dirt cup, low battery indicator light, WindTunnel technology, powerful 18v battery, and one-touch brush roll activation. The suction power on the LiNX is amazing – especially when you’re used to cheaper stick vacuums.

Now I’ll go over a few things I’m not too fond of. First off, the $180 price tag is definitely on the high end. In fact, the Hoover LiNX is probably double the price of most other decent stick models. Another issue is that the battery life is super short – probably around 20 minutes. This isn’t uncommon among stick vacuums though. Lastly, it’s not that great on pet hair. Other than those few problems, I would highly recommend the Hoover LiNX vacuum. I’m giving it a 4.4 / 5 star rating.

Hoover Pet Rewind Review

Hoover Pet RewindOur Hoover Pet Rewind review: Having both style and great functionality, it’s no wonder why the Hoover WindTunnel Pet Rewind vacuum is so popular. It is a bagless model, with the canister clearly visible in the front (to show you how much dirt it’s picking up, I suppose). I really like that the cord is long enough so you shouldn’t need to plug in more than once for larger rooms – it’s 27 ft long. The 13.5 inch cleaning path is also very useful for larger rooms, which helps get your vacuuming done quicker. A few other nice features on the Hoover Pet Rewind include: a HEPA filter, motorized brush roll, retractable cord, lifetime filter, headlight, adjustable height and it has six seperate tools on-board. The tools it comes with are very useful – especially for picking up pet hair.

Now I’ll go over a couple things I don’t like about the Hoover Pet Rewind vacuum. First off, the 2 year warranty isn’t the best. This seems a little short, especially if you don’t use your vacuum that often. Another issue is that it weighs almost 18 lbs. This makes the Hoover Pet Rewind just heavy enough to be annoying when dragging up the stairs. If you have a ton of pet fur and dirt to pick up, just be aware that you may have to dig the hair out of the cup by hand (which is nasty). Most of these issues are very minor, so don’t get the idea that it’s a problem vacuum cleaner – it’s not. Overall, I’m giving this model a 4.5 / 5 star rating.

Hoover U5491900 Review

Hoover U5491900Our Hoover U5491900 review: There aren’t very many vacuum models which have been around as long as the Hoover U5491900 WindTunnel Bagged Upright vacuum. It’s not that this model is super fancy, it’s just a consistently solid performer. A few features you’ll find on this unit are: HEPA media bag, DirtFinder sensor, 31 ft power cord, a headlight, 5 setting height adjustment, on-off motorized brush, and an on-board tool kit. Also when you buy this vacuum, you get a 3-year manufacturer warranty. That’s not the best warranty on the market, but it’s still very nice to have.

Unfortunately, the Hoover U5491900 vacuum is a bit noisy. Most people don’t seem to mind it, but it is a little louder than average. Also, since this is a bagged model, you’ll have to spend some money replacing bags. And while it does a great job on carpet, I think there are much better models for bare floors. However, since you can turn the roller brush off when vacuuming the bare floors, it does do an OK job of it. Last complaint I have of the Hoover U5491900 WindTunnel Bagged Upright model is the build quality. The plastic is on the cheaper side. Even with these complaints, this vacuum is still a solid performer. You can buy it for around $115, which is a very reasonable price. I’m giving it a 4.5/5 star rating.
