Hoover Wind Tunnel Review



Hoover® is thrilled to introduce the new WindTunnel® Air™ Bagless Upright with a multi-cylonic filtration system, which cleans the air moving through the filter to ensure no loss of suction*. The WindTunnel® Air™ Bagless Upright vacuum features patented Hoover® WindTunnel® technology that removes embedded dirt** and minimizes blowback or scatter on carpet. While extremely lightweight at only 12.4 pounds, this vacuum offers all the power needed to get floors truly clean, and is perfect for small spaces.

This vacuum is designed with a telescopic handle with built-in wand that detaches with one simple touch. Simply connect the stair hose to the built-in hose and easily clean stairs without having to lift and carry the vacuum. Other intuitive features include convenient power and brushroll controls, a carry handle on top of the dirt cup, and a clear nozzle with no-scuff bumper. The body reclines all the way to the floor, so you can reach under furniture easily, and the brushroll automatically stops when you put the vacuum back in the upright position.

Requiring minimal maintenance, the Hoover® WindTunnel® Air™ Bagless Upright has a rinsable filter that can be easily cleaned under running water and a high-quality filter made with HEPA media - neither of which will need to be replaced during the warranty period with proper care.

I literally jumped up and down when I found out that I was going to get to review the Hoover Wind Tunnel!!!

Yes I am a weirdo, getting very excited about cleaning, but come on, why wouldn't you!!!

With two kids, three rabbits and many rugs in my house, I go through vacuums like normal people go through sliced bread!!


I let Ben put the vacuum together. He's good at those things!!! It took him about 10 minutes to set up, and figure out how to use it.



He even read the directions!!!


This vacuum is so light weight. Our old vacuum had to be carried with two hands. This one I could lift with one, and not worry about breaking my arm!!!

At first it was a little confusing on how to start the brushes at the bottom. Then we realized you needed to tilt the vacuum like you were about to start pushing for the brushes to move. I like that feature a lot. With two very curious boys, I feel safer knowing they can't activate the vacuum without my help!!




The vacuum is extremely powerful. The bunnies throw their shaving all over the floor. Normally I have to get out the vacuum wand to pick up the clippings. With the Hoover Wind Tunnel, one swipe was all it took.

The wand feature on this vacuum is a little confusing. You have to detach the hose from the bottom of the vacuum to then connect the wand.

After we figured out the wand, it was actually not that hard to use, and made the vacuum even lighter. Perfect for if you have cobwebs in the corner or are carrying it up the stairs.

See I even video taped us cleaning. We do do it!!!




If you are looking for a light weight, powerful Vacuum, the Hoover Wind Tunnel is for you!!

**All opinions expressed are 100% my own. I was not compensated for this post. I was given the above vacuum for this review.**
