Avg. consumer rating = 82/100 


Owners of the Hoover UH70210 WindTunnel Pet Vacuum give it very good marks for its ability to pick up unruly pet hair.  They are also pleased with its strong suction and washable HEPA filter.   However some find the hose a little short and the dirt canister tricky to empty.  All-in-all consumer reviews are quite favorable, giving the UH70210 consistently 4 out of 5 stars or better.

A review of consumer comments from quality sites provided the following UH70210 likes and dislikes:

 

PROS
- Very good on pet hair
- Powerful suction (many comments about this)
- Long power cord (many indicate this although 27 feet isn’t exceptionally long)
- Effective on both hard surfaces and carpet
- Easy to assemble
- Auto-rewind power cord
- Washable HEPA filter
- Brushbar can be turned off

CONS
- Short hose
- Attachments are average
- Dirt canister is a bit small and can be tricky to empty
- Light is not very bright

Consumers, in general, like the Hoover UH70210 despite a few grumblings.  Ratings from several sites are provided below.

Out of the box the Hoover UH70210 does require some assembly (via screwdriver), however owners have indicated that this is very easy to do and the vacuum is up and running quite quickly.  It is powered by a 12 amp motor and consumers agree that the UH70210 has very powerful suction.   Like many vacuums these days it is a bagless unit that uses cyclonic filtration.  Cyclonic filtration spins the air very quickly pushing the dirt out of the airpath.  This approach also limits the amount of dirt that the filters are exposed to – keeping the filters cleaner much longer.

A HEPA filter comes with this Hoover.  HEPA stands for “High Efficiency Particulate Air” and this level of filtration removes 99.97% of all airborne particles with a diameter of 0.3 microns or greater.  This typically includes dust, pet dander, pollen, dust mite feces, etc.   The HEPA filter on the UH70210 is washable and can be reused over and over.  This approach saves money over time.  A filter check indicator on the vacuum indicates when the filter needs to be checked or cleaned.  The unit also comes with a carbon filter.  Carbon is very effective at removing odors, including musty pet smells, from the air. 

A myriad of attachments is provided with the Hoover UH70210. These include:

 

- A Pet Contour Tool
- A Pet Turbo-Brush (air powered)
- An Upholstery Tool
- A Brush Tool
- A Dusting Brush
- A Crevice Tool
- A 12 inch extension wand

The power cord is 27 feet long.  This is fairly long – we always believe a power cord should be at least 30 feet in length but 27 isn’t far from the mark.  The power cord has an auto-rewind function (activated via a foot pedal) which is appreciated by consumers.  The weight of the UH70210 is 17. 8 lbs and owner reviews and comments allude to this vacuum being both “light” and “heavy”.  The vacuum weight is about average and consumer comments appear to be a function of the individual – if you are a large, strong person you do not find this vacuum heavy, but a smaller person may.  For those who do not like lifting (especially with a multi-level dwelling) a lighter vacuum is always a good idea.

The hose on this Hoover is 8 feet in length.  This has caused some negative comments as many owner’s would like more reach.  The UH70210 also comes with 5 different carpet height adjustments and this allows for effective transition from one floor type to another.  Also, the brushbar on the unit can be turned on or off.  This is a very useful feature as one usually wants the brushbar ON when vacuuming carpet, and OFF when vacuuming hard surfaces.  In addition, cleaning of the brushroll is made easy because the UH70210 has an “easy access” system whereby flipping two levers provides access to the brushroll and the belt (for easy changing should it be needed).

For an average-cost upright the Hoover UH70210 is quite feature rich and it also includes a handle that folds down making for easy storage, a headlight, and a soft bumper to ensure no marring of furniture or walls.  The cleaning path of the vacuum is 13.5 inches wide (about average width), and it carries a limited 2 year warranty

Can and should either an extension to or a longer, replacement hose be purchased for this vacuum?

This product is a piece of cr--! it won\'t pick up anything on a bare floor. Does a so so job on carpeting. I had a Hoover wind tunnel for years--loved it and bought this one thinking it would be great. Ha! It\'s a piece of junk and that\'s where I\'d sending it--to the junk pile.

We just bought one and love it! We picked up 4 canisters full of dirt in two large area rugs - amazing suction and with the dial, it was easy to switch from low pile carpets to tile. Love the attachments, we tried them all out on curtains, crevices, fireplace rocks, and staircase. Excellent vacuum, and I\'d give it 5/5 stars.
