The Hoover Self Propelled WindTunnel Bagless Upright U6634900 is a vacuum cleaner with bagless technology and a HEPA filter that filters out practically 100% of allergens. With a powered pet hair tool that is able to be used on upholstered furniture and stairs and an embedded DirtFINDER that turns green when the carpet is clean, this is a Hoover vacuum cleaner that is billed as a serious cleaning machine.
The Hoover Self Propelled WindTunnel has a 15″ cleaning path with a dual brush agitator and brush roll shut-off feature. This is a self-propelled machine that makes vacuuming large carpeted areas much easier, with less wear and tear on the operator. There is a generously sized twin chamber bagless system and a long-life HEPA filter cartridge. The bagless system and long-life HEPA filter are really cost effective features, ensuring the owner that costly bags are a thing of the past and the filter only needs periodic replacement. There is an on-board tool kit that has a crevice tool, dusting brush and 3 extension wands that fit together. The included pet hair tool is powered and has its own rotating brush. The cord length of this Hoover vacuum is 31′ which is standard on most of the vacuum cleaners that Hoover makes.
This Hoover vacuum cleaner is a terrific model. The suction of this machine is incredible and makes removing pet hair a breeze. As it is self-propelled, pushing this vacuum is really easy which is a good thing considering that it is a heavier machine. Priced at around $200 dollars and including Hoover’s 1-year warranty, this particular model of Hoover vacuum cleaner is a pretty good deal. The multiple height adjustments make this machine effective on hard floors as well as on carpeted surfaces and the pet hair tool is really useful because it is motorized, making it like a miniature upright for use on furniture or stairs. The extension wands fit together quickly to allow the operator the ability to reach into corners or under furniture.
There are some problems with this machine, the main one being with the dual brush agitator. While this is usually an asset, it can be an issue when it comes to changing the belts because there are two belts. There are certainly quieter machines on the market, but the suction is good enough that the sound may not bother some owners. There are some other problems, including frustration with the cord, the length of the hose and the dirt cup. The cord on this machine is pretty stiff at first and may frustrate some until it is broken in a little. The suction hose is on the too-short side, although the extension wands help expand the total reach. Another issue is that the dirt cup can be a pain to empty and can be messy. This Hoover vacuum cleaner also needs to be assembled out of the packaging.
For the money, the Hoover Self Propelled WindTunnel Bagless Upright U6634900 is a good value. Because it is bagless and has filters that don’t need to be constantly changed, the owner will find that this vacuum can save a lot of money in the long run, although belts will still need replacing when they become loose or damaged. For people looking for a vacuum cleaner that offers terrific allergen removal, this Hoover vacuum is a good choice.
