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
