Hoover WindTunnel Air Bagless Upright Vacuum
Hoover WindTunnel Air
Bagless Upright Vacuum
I have to say, when I 1st pulled this out of the box, I was really wary if it could handle my house! We have 2 dogs, a cat & Ethan. Not to mention my crazy family that was visiting for 6 weeks! It’s SO lightweight I was doubting it’s ability. Good things come in small packages because this Hoover WindTunnel Vacuum really SUCKED!
Like, sucked all that dog hair right up. I went over the family room carpet and I think we picked up stuff that’s been there since the day we moved in! But, to give it a bit of a test, I did all four bedrooms with my Bissell (which I do love!) 1st to see if it picked up anything that was left behind. The Hoover WindTunnel picked up a ton of hair left behind. And honestly, I sort of felt guilty for letting the small fry play on the carpet this whole time thinking it was clean! It impressed me after that.
(GROSS! Left over hair from other vacuum)
I loved that it’s bag less & I don’t have to spend tons of money replacing those! I love that the Hoover WindTunnel has a super long cord, which makes the whole vacuuming chore go much quicker not stopping to replug constantly. Again, I LOVE how lightweight it is! It’s only 12 lbs! Being disabled puts a bit of restriction on what I’m able to lift, push, pull etc. The Hoover WindTunnel made it a breeze even for me sitting in my wheelchair.
I really also like that the Hoover WindTunnel has a HEPA media filter that traps 99.97% of dirt, dust and pollen. Ethan has horrible allergies. We can’t send the dog off because he’s my service dog and we can’t get rid of Ethan, so we’re vacuuming a lot! The fact that it traps so much gunk was great!
The hose attachment made getting in the corners very easy and I was able to grab that stray spider web that’s been hanging in the corner of my family room. The one thing I would have liked to see but not a deal breaker was a self-winding cord! Because it’s so long, it was a bit of a bummer not having that feature. Again, not a deal breaker but a nice bonus offered with some similar models.
The only thing that would make me chose a similar model over the Hoover WindTunnel is the brush attachment that allows you to do furniture etc. As I said, we have pets (looooong haired pets!) and I missed being able to grab the brush attachment to vacuum the hair off the couch. If all that added ‘hairiness’ isn’t an issue for you, I think you’ll be very happy!
The price is great for what you’re getting and I’d recommend the Hoover WindTunnel Air for sure! Especially sending those kiddos off to college or their first grown-up apartment! Small, lightweight, a good dirt sucker! They will have NO excuse not to keep things just as clean as mom does.
