Pros & Cons
The Hoover WindTunnel UH70120, a bagless upright vacuum cleaner offers a powerful cleaning experience by combining superior performance and lightweight design at just 16.5 pounds. This unit is powered with a 12 amp motor and features a System Check Indicator to indicate the time to clean the dust cup to maintain its peak performance. The WindTunnel offers a patented technology featuring air passage, along with the unit’s five – position carpet height adjustment, that help maintain suction power and traps dirt and channels into the dirt cup thus allowing effective cleaning of all floor types.
It comes with a 8-foot long flexible hose, 12-inch extension wand, a crevice tool and an upholstery / dusting brush. It also includes a powered hand tool for removing dust, dirt and hair from hard to reach places. The unit requires minimal maintenance due to its rinse-clean filter and high quality permanent HEPA filter. This filter can be rinsed and reused thus making it more cost effective. Some other highlights include a comfort-grip handle, 13.5 inch wide nozzle, no- scuff bumper to protect the furniture when in hurry and an intuitive fingertip control for easy and flexible operation. The unit has a quick cord-rewind mode with a pedal to activate, thus making it easy to store.
Many reviewers report that the hose is short and requires frequent cleaning to avoid clogging of dirt. It was also noticed that the suction power is low, and the canister’s trap door spills the dirt all over while emptying it out. Another major complaint is that the belts and some small plastic are not durable and break off often.
Overall, the Hoover WindTunnel UH70120 is a good vacuum cleaner with sleek design and superior cleaning power for carpeted floor or bare floors. The WindTunnel T-Series vacuums feature patented Hoover WindTunnel technology that removes embedded dirt and minimizes blowback or scatter on carpet.
