If you’re looking for the lightest and slimmest upright vacuum on the market, then you have to consider this unit. It’s backed up by a motorized brush roll for improved cleaning efficiency, a slider that lets you easily transition from hard floors to low pile carpets and vice-versa, and also a 20” power cord that comes together with cord release functionality. You’ll also find out this unit lets you aspire even the bulkier things, such as “Cheerios”, but what’s truly impressive about this vacuum is its “extreme” recline level, which lets you get far under your sofa or cupboard.

The dirt cup has been neatly included on the unit back, and it’s been constructed of transparent plastic in order to let you see exactly when it’s filled up. This cup is also easier to empty thanks to the convenient release design. The multi-cyclonic core of this appliance (which is specific to the Hoover WindTunnel series) guarantees no loss of suction and increased efficiency. Also, the rinsable filter guarantees lifetime durability and no extra maintenance costs. All in all you can’t go wrong with this unit if power and simplicity is what you’re looking for.

How to Choose a Vacuum

Choices; they aren't always easy. Informed choices are. In the case of buying a vacuum there can be jargon to hop skip and jump over. As there are many vacuums to choose from but also many features. That's where this quick guide comes into play. Learn some of the common factors of vacuums so you can make an informed choice.


Power (in watts) is kind of a big deal when it comes to vacuums. If you don't have the right power for the job then it's not worth doing. Vacuums come with many power ranges. Some vacuums that don't have much power are still great while others aren't. Look out for the strength of the power behind that vacuum if you want to be sure it'll suck all that dirt up.

Upright or Cylinder

From a personal perspective upright is the better choice generally. The issue is upright vacuums are usually awkward when it comes to hard-to-reach areas. They do come with attachments usually, but the reach just isn't there as it is with cylinder vacuums  In essence  a cylinder vacuums is generally more versatile when it comes to nooks and crannies. Choose wisely, it could be a big regret.

Bag or Bagless?

Do you want to empty your vacuum regularly and not replace the bag? It's a huge money saver to not have a bagged vacuum  The better option usually being bagless. It's down to personal preference here, and probably again, maneuverability when it comes to the emptying process.

Filters (Allergies?)

A vacuum with a suitable filter can go a long way in any case. Though if you have an allergy, a filter will go an even longer way. There's a range of common filters to choose from, that each have their own advantages, either value for money or more allergy suitable:

Standard Filtration

Nothing out of the ordinary here, just a standard filter that will need replacing every now and then.

HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air)

This is actually a bit of a mouthful to say, never mind understand. All you really need to know about HEPA filters is that they are becoming industry standard, and claim to capture 99.7% of all particles taken in by the vacuum. Meaning that the air outflow is cleaner and especially cleaner for those with allergies.

Lifetime Filters

They say nothing lasts a lifetime, but have you ever owned one of those old Nokia phones? Lifetime filters come in both standard and HEPA, and can save on having to buy replacements which is great for saving money.

Size and Weight

Does size matter? Yes it does. When shopping be careful to check the dimensions of a product. Is it suitable for your storage? Suitable to carry? Will it be a big struggle or the perfect size for your needs? Speaking of size, there are vacuums that come as handhelds for small tasks; usually great for cleaning up after pets or that mess you leave after your artistic creations.

Wet, Dry & Steam

Depending on the surface; you may look into a wet, dry or steam powered vacuum. Check suitability of the surface for the vacuum you purchase  you may find that dry is better than steam or wet is better than both.
