Hoover WindTunnel T-Series UH70210 Review


Frugal pet owners unite around the Hoover T-Series WindTunnel Pet Rewind UH70210 bagless upright, according to hundreds of reviews. At both Walmart and Amazon, users rave about the powerful suction that rids carpets, furniture, and bare floors of hair left behind by cats and dogs, even in multiple-pet households. Numerous Hoover T-Series WindTunnel Pet Rewind UH70210 reviews tell of writers' amazement at the amount of dirt and hair collected in the container after a pass over a carpet they thought was clean. They say this model thoroughly revives rugs, and one reviewer notes that her carpet hasn't looked so inviting since the day she moved in. Users also commend the rubber blades on the special pet tool, which collects pet hair from sofas and chairs, and the convenience of the retractable cord.

What some Hoover T-Series WindTunnel Pet Rewind UH70210 reviews gripe about is the struggle to empty the bottom-release dirt container when packed full of pet hair; some resort to a bent coat hanger and others to their fingers. The hose takes a bit of heat, as well, for being stiff, awkward to use, and resistant to stretching its full 8-foot length. A handful of lemons presented problems like fluctuating suction and a finicky cord rewind.

The Hoover T-Series WindTunnel Pet Rewind Bagless UH70210 (starting at $129, Amazon) sports a 27-foot power cord -- a bit longer than standard in the budget range -- a 13.5-inch cleaning path, and the usual 12-amp motor. It also features a rinsable HEPA filter and a carbon filter that absorbs pet odors, an indicator light for cleaning/checking the filter, and a headlight on the base. The height can be set to one of five positions and the roller brush can be turned off for hard-surface vacuuming. The unit weighs 17.8 pounds and comes with an air-powered pet hand tool and a pet upholstery tool (both with rubber grips), a crevice tool, and 12-inch extension wand. It is backed by a two-year warranty.

This model seems to be the one for pet owners with serious bad hair days. The vast majority of users are thrilled with the Hoover T-Series WindTunnel Pet Rewind's performance, save for some digs at the hose. And the budget price seals the deal.
