The 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.
