Hoover WindTunnel 2 UH71250 Review – Be Sure It Suits Your Needs.

Hoover WindTunnel 2 UH71250

If you are after an inexpensive bagless upright that is designed for whole home cleaning from floor to ceiling then the Hoover WindTunnel 2 UH71250 is the one for you. Obviously, it is not Dyson or Miele but for the most part the customer feedback for the floor-care product has proven to be encouraging. This article review will try and show the positives and negatives of the bagless upright vacuum cleaner.

Being moderately priced ($130 at this time of writing), the Hoover 71250 comes with a number of useful features to clean various floor types, above-floor and stairs. There are 5 carpet height settings to select, allowing you to maximize the suction for any carpet pile. Unlike new upright vacuums these days, this one does not offer auto-adjusting floor brush feature. However, this is not a serious issue.

The on off brushroll allows easy changing from carpet to hard floors. This will help prevent scattering of debris all over the room. Like many vacuums today, the Hoover WindTunnel 2 uses multi-cyclonic technology to separate dirt and debris from the air path before reaching the filter. This will maintain power as you vacuum your home. The suction is then channeled across the 13.5 inch cleaning path.

The Hoover UH71250 WindTunnel 2 is driven by a 12 amp motor. You know that the maximum amount of electricity you can pull out of a wall socket is 12.5 amps. That said, when it comes to vacuum cleaners, electrical power rating means nothing if the rest of the vac is not designed well. While other vacuums rely on just one channel, the Hoover WindTunnel comes with two channels of suction for better embedded dirt removal. Machines that offers three channels of suction are also offered by the company. Have a look at the WindTunnel 3 UH72400.

This particular cleaner can be a smart investment for pet owners. To minimize pet odors, the filter is made with an odor-absorbing carbon layer. With the pet Turbo tool, getting pet hair off of upholstery and carpeted stairs would not be a daunting task. Talking about attachment, crevice tool is also shipped with this cleaner. In addition to the air powered hand tool and the crevice tool, the Hoover UH71250 also comes with a pivoting dusting brush which is designed for cleaning ceiling fan blades.

A 12-foot stretch expansion hose is provided, a useful feature when dealing with stair cleaning. Another feature included is a telescoping wand that will make above floor cleaning easier. When used together, the hose and the telescopic wand give you a 16-foot reach. The power cord is also long enough, so there is less need to move to a different outlet. Even better, the vac features automatic cord rewind. No need to manually wrap a power cord each time you vacuum.

The width of the cleaning base is 13.5 Inches. Obviously, it is not a wide area vacuum. However, the cleaning path is relatively wide for a residential upright but is still narrow enough to get between furniture. This UH71250 model from Hoover does not provide swivel steering. Weighing 17 pounds, it is not the lightest of upright vacuum on the market. That said, it would not be that hard to maneuver.

The WindTunnel 2 Whole House is not a feature rich vacuum cleaner. There is no light to find dirt and debris more conveniently. Also consider to buy an optional smooth floor brush from the company if you want to use it for hardwood. With all that being said, the feedback from the reviewers at Amazon.com has generally been very positive. It currently has a review rating of 4.4/5 stars.

For the price, Hoover seems to have done a good job of equipping this bagless upright. The UH71250 WindTunnel 2 comes equipped with a 1.29 liter dirt cup. People have found that emptying and reassembling the dust cup on this machine is easy. There is a button on the top to open the bottom part of the container. The performance indicator light lets you know when to clean filters. Since it is a bagless model, there are no bags to replace.

Among other choices available out there, the Hoover WindTunnel 2 Whole House Rewind can be a good solution for many homeowners who have pets. There may be some features that are not quite as desirable. However, if you are looking for an inexpensive bagless vacuum for taking care of various cleaning situations typically found in a home, then the Hoover UH71250 is worth considering.
