The 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.
