Hoover Linx Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner BH50010 Review

If you are looking for a cordless, stick hardwood floor vacuum with a straightforward design, then the Hoover Linx Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner BH50010 is a model I highly recommend. Sure, the Hoover Linx may not have a trendy, cool looking design like some higher end Dyson vacuums and it does not come with many brush attachments, but what you will get is outstanding performance at a very affordable price.

What I Like About The Hoover Linx Cordless Stick

Simple, Straightforward Design : The Hoover Linx may look like a stripped version of an upright vacuum, in terms of design. When compared to upright vacuums, the Hoover Linx weighs merely 7.3 pounds, which means that it is relatively lighter. Even for a stick vacuum, it is not too heavy. As far as features are concerned, the Linx is certainly very simple. A lithium-ion battery powers this vacuum cleaner that can be charged using the separate charger that comes with it Apart from turning off this vacuum, it can also be switched between two different cleaning modes, namely the suction only mode for hardwood and the suction and brush roll mode for carpets.

Outstanding Usability : Apart from being more compact and lighter than conventional upright vacuums, you will not have to search for an outlet or trip over a cord since it is battery-powered. Unlike other stick vacuum models, you will not find it a chore using the Hoover Linx, the reason behind which is its simple design. The power switch can be easily reached since it present at the top of the handle. Whether the suction-only or suction-and-brush-roll is being currently used can be seen by taking a look at the light indicator. The front of this vacuum cleaner also has an LED status bar that indicates when the battery needs to be charged. Moreover, there are no accessories, so you will not need extra storage space and it can be conveniently stored in a closet. You will not need a dock to charge the entire vacuum since it comes with its own battery charger and the battery itself will last between 15 and 20 minutes after being fully charged for 3 hours.

Impressive Performance : Many vacuum cleaners find it challenging to pick up spilled edibles like Cheerios & Goldfish. The Hoover Linx will pick them up completely from various flooring surfaces, including hardwood, low-pile carpets and mid-pile carpets. The Hoover Linx effectively collects such larger particles every time you use it Some vacuum cleaners also find it tough to handle pet hair, but the Hoover Linx will not because it will again pick up all pet hair from the same flooring surfaces mentioned above. As for smaller particles, the Hoover Linx may come up short but will still effectively pick up such particles in one or two passes.

Hoover WindTunnel UH70210 Vacuum Review

The Hoover WindTunnel UH70210 vacuum is an upright, bagless model, that is made with pets in mind. This is one of the most popular models because it comes with a number of tools and features that make cleaning after pets easier.

Hoover WindTunnel UH70210 Upright Vacuum

With a weight of only 17.8 pounds, dual cyclonic air system and 12 amp motor, it makes vacuuming easy and fast. The Hoover patented WindTunnel technology traps and channels dirt into the dirt cup and minimizes scatter. These two systems ensure you get good suction and keep the dirt and particles from coming right back out after they’ve been picked up.

When you finish vacuuming, putting the machine away is quick and easy. The UH70210 comes with a 27-foot, auto rewind cord that works with just a tap of the pedal and the handle folds down for easy storage. All the hand tools are fit squarely onto different cabins on the device itself.

A foot pedal lets you turn off the spinning brush without having to bend. This feature makes the device able to work on both carpeted areas as well as hardwood and bare floors.

This model is particularly good for dealing with pet hair. It comes with an easy to clean air-powered pet hand tool. This tool features washable rubber blades and full suction to ensure that even the most stubborn pet hair is removed.

The Hoover WindTunnel UH70210 vacuum comes with three filters: a filter that can be rinsed and re-used, a high-quality HEPA filter, and a carbon filter that absorbs musty pet odors. In addition, the UH 70210 has a five-position height adjustment and controls that are right at your fingertips.

This model also features an eight-foot stretch hose, a 12-foot extension wand, as well as a number of onboard tools. These include a crevice tool, a dusting brush, and a powered hand tool, as well as the air-powered pet hand tool mentioned earlier.

The onboard tools, 8 foot hose and included attachments allow you to clean non-conventional areas like stairs, curtains and furniture

Taken together, these features allow you to move from carpets to bare floors to upholstery with ease and finally win the pet hair battle.

In order to keep this machine in tip top cleaning condition, you will need to do some maintenance. Hoover actually includes filter indicators where the sensor turns from green to red when the filter needs cleaning. The filter is reusable, so all it needs it rinsing through faucet water then dried off, saving you money over time.
