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.
