A vacuum cleaner that’s tough on dirt doesn’t always have to be tough on your back. Hoover promises a more pleasant cleaning experience with its T-Series WindTunnel Rewind Plus Bagless Upright Vacuum. It weighs 16.5 pounds, slightly heavier than other models, but since it is cleverly designed, its weight is evenly distributed and it doesn’t feel heavy to move around at all.
And with its generous 27-foot power cord, you won’t have to keep re-plugging when vacuuming a large area. The fact that it’s retractable is a great bonus too! Most important of all, this model also aims to continue Hoover’s long tradition of creating vacuum cleaners that really suck—and by that we mean vacuums that suck out dirt and dust efficiently.
- Lightweight at 16.5 pounds
- Boasts of a powerful WindTunnel Technology that effectively picks up stubborn dust and dirt
- 5-position height adjustment that lets you easily clean all types of floors. Also comes with a rinse-clean filter and a permanent HEPA filter.
- No-scuff bumper makes it kind to your bare floors and furniture
- 27-foot retractable power cord means no more frequent re-plugging
Hoover vacuums are usually consumer favorites and the Hoover T-Series WindTunnel Rewind Plus Bagless Upright Vacuum seems to be also well-received just like its brothers. It has earned a very decent average rating of 3.7 out of 5 stars on Amazon.com. More than 700 people left reviews about this product and 70 percent gave it a rating of 4 stars and higher.
First, the good—most customers agree that once again, Hoover has come up with a model that provides great suction power. Customers are impressed with how good this vacuum is at sucking out dust and dirt. Another favorite is the very convenient retractable cord. A lot of people also commented on how easy it is to move this vacuum around, it almost feels like it’s self propelled. Design-wise, most customers are also pleased with its looks.
Of course, you could never please everybody. Some customers don’t like the fact that there is no brushroll shutoff—which can admittedly be quite annoying when trying to clean bare floors. Others also say the canister could use a design improvement. Sometimes, pet hair and dust bunnies get stuck on the sides that you have to remove them with your own fingers.
Those who gave ratings below 3 stars seem to have received lemons—their units had belts that would frequently slip off or snap. Others also had units that stopped working in a matter of months.
If we just take a look at the numbers, there are definitely more people who claim that they are satisfied with their purchase. Reviews are mixed, yes, but we still think that this Hoover model is worth checking out. For a very good price, it performs just like (or even better than) more expensive models out there. Yes, there is some question about this particular Hoover vacuum’s durability, but perhaps if handled with a little extra care, this vacuum could keep working for longer than expected.
