Hoover Air Steerable WindTunnel (UH72400) Vacuum Review

Hoover UH72400 WindTunnel Air Steerable Bagless Upright Vacuum CleanerThe Hoover WindTunnel Air Steerable Bagless Upright Vacuum is a state of the art vacuum cleaner which really demonstrates why Hoover are still an industry leader, and a must have brand when it comes to cleaning appliance.

As the name suggests, it is a bagless upright vacuum with unprecedented suction power and it is lightweight enough for most consumers to carry around the house. It does everything that you would expect a quality vacuum cleaner would do.

Design

The Hoover Air Steerable Upright Vacuum is an all in one upright cleaning tool, so the base, the dust chamber and the handle are all built into one. The handle cannot be separated from the base, however it is so lightweight and maneuverable that this would not be an issue.

The fact that it is upright means that it takes very little space to store – all it needs is a small corner or small section in a cupboard.

There are also two handles – the main handle at the end for controlling it when the vacuum is in use, and another handle around the middle where the dust chamber is, which makes it comfortable to carry. This is perfect if you want to carry it up stairs or over an obstacle.

Because it is bagless there are clearly no bags needed, so there is a dust chamber instead where the dust and whatever else you vacuum is collected. The dust chamber in the Hoover WindTunnel Upright Vacuum is cleverly designed so that it can be separated from the main part of the vacuum cleaner and emptied straight into the bin where it belongs.

Features

The main feature that separates the Hoover WindTunnel Air Steerable Bagless Upright Vacuum from the others in the market is its exclusive Wind Tunnel feature. This is basically a special technology where a specially designed vacuum head uses 3 channels of powerful suction to bring up deeply embedded dust particles from your floors. Even floors that you thought were already spotless will become cleaner when using this quality vacuum. The swivel feature in the base of the vacuum cleaner is what makes this one extra steerable – it is able to ultimately turn on the spot, so even sharp corners are no match.

This vacuum cleaner does more than just pick up dirt and dust – it actually has a massive 8 cyclones to filter the dust, so that harmful particles will not sent back out – perfect for asthmatics or those sensitive to dust.

It also comes with a range of accessories for any job – a stretch hose to extend to up to 14 feet, a crevice tool for getting into hard to reach places, and a brush tool for vacuuming smaller areas such as behind appliances.

Usability

Because upright vacuums are notoriously bulky and hard to steer, Hoover have really concentrated on those factors to design an all in one vacuum that is not only lightweight and easy to steer, but is also effective and functional. It actually uses the word ‘steerable’ in the product title, and this is a testament to just how easy it is to steer and manoeuvre. It is very user friendly and it can get into surprisingly small spaces considering its size – including being able to go almost completely flat to vacuum underneath tables and other furnishings. There are also accessories that can be purchased for different cleaning uses so no matter what you want to vacuum (whether it be the couch, blinds or between two pieces of furniture), there will be an accessory to assist.

There are also no confusing buttons or controls – simply one button to turn the vacuum on and off, and another to switch between carpet mode and hard floor mode. So no accessories or major settings need to be changed to go from carpet to tiles – simply press the button and you are good to go.

Verdict

There are quite a few bagless upright vacuum cleaners appearing on the market, and the Hoover Hoover WindTunnel Air Steerable Bagless Upright Vacuum is definitely one of the better ones, especially when using it to vacuum carpets. It has great suction and filtration incorporated into this quality, yet affordable vacuum cleaner. Hoover is one of the real innovators in the vacuum cleaning industry, and it is clear that they are still an industry leader.
