Hoover Vacuum Reviews

Hoover started in the early 1900's in the USA. While popular in the US the vacuums were even more popular in the UK and Ireland - so much so that in the UK a vacuum cleaner is still known colloquially as a Hoover. Hoover manufacture a wide array of home cleaning machine including both bagged and bagless uprights and canisters, as well as stick vacs, handhelds, carpet cleaners and hard floor cleaners. There are a huge number of different machines and models and costs tend to be about average.

Hoover U5491-900 Windtunnel Anniversary Bagged Upright Vacuum Cleaner

Avg. consumer rating = 81/100 

The U5491-900 is a bagged upright vacuum cleaner that is not too expensive and gets quite good reviews.  It does not use a dirt-container like many of the bagless machines today, but instead uses a disposable bag. There is a long standing debate about whether bagged or bagless vacuum cleaners being better – bagged tend to make it easier to dispose of the collected dirt and it is cleaner to throw away the bag and put a new one in.  Bagless do not require purchasing and throwing away bags but it should be noted that they often have filters that need to be maintained or replaced and they rely on seals to prevent the dirt-container from leaking.

Hoover UH30010COM Platinum Lightweight Bagged Upright Vacuum Cleaner with Canister

Avg. consumer rating = 86/100 

This is a very popular upright and it is a bagged vacuum which we are seeing less of these days. – It also comes with a supplementary canister vacuum that you can wear over your shoulder.  This machine gets high marks for power, maneuverability, lightweight construction, and a 5-year warranty.  There is very little negative written about the Hoover UH30010COM.  However one should know that the brushroll in the upright cannot be turned off.

Avg. consumer rating = 80/100 

When deciding on a steam vacuum many consumers price the cost of having a professional cleaning company come in and do their carpets.  The pricing is often about the same as the price of the Hoover F7411-900 SteamVac Dual V Widepath Carpet Cleaner – if you can get a good deal on the vacuum then it is often less.  Granted that you have to do the work yourself if you own the cleaner but at least you can use it many times.  If you have the desire (and the energy) one of these babies is the way to go, and the Hoover F7411-900 gets pretty good marks from consumers.

Hoover U5786900 Vacuum Cleaner Review

Avg. consumer rating = 75/100 

Hoover is a very well established brand.  So much so that the British often refer to a vacuum cleaner as a “hoover”.  The company manufacturers many electrical household items and has been around since the early 1900’s.  They have recently released a series of vacuums coined “anniversary”.  This is to commemorate their 100th anniversary - and one of the popular anniversary vacuums is the “Hoover U5786900 Windtunnel Anniversary Bagless Upright Vacuum Cleaner”.

Rating the Hoover U5507-900 Elite Auto-Rewind Bagless Vacuum Cleaner


Avg. consumer rating = 79/100 

W.H. "Boss" Hoover bought the patent for the “suction sweeper” from an inventor in 1908.  Since then Hoover engineers have been improving upon the basic design, creating a comprehensive range of vacuum cleaner models for both general and specialized cleaning.  In this vacuum cleaner rating we look at another in the long line of Hoover cleaning machines; namely the Hoover U5507-900.  This bagless vacuum cleaner offers “widepath” cleaning – providing a 14.5 inch sweep, a HEPA filter, stretch hose, several add-on cleaning tools, a headlight (a first developed by Hoover engineers years ago), a furniture guard and a 24 foot retractable cord…

Hoover S3765-040 WindTunnel Bagless Canister Vacuum Cleaner Rating


Avg. consumer rating = 69/100 

The Hoover S3765-040 uses Hoover’'s patented WindTunnel technology.   Hoover does not go into great detail about how the WindTunnel technology works other than to say their engineers went to great lengths to develop a system that lifts and traps dirt very efficiently without any scattering. Reviews and ratings on this vacuum seem to vary widely, from good on Walmart to below average on Amazon.

Hoover Vacuums - An Overview

Hoover products are undoubtedly some of the most established in the vacuum and household appliance industry at the moment. The brand is so established that British individuals call the vacuum the “hoover” rather than referring to it with the proper and accepted term for the appliance. Despite the fact that the company has been going for an extensive period of time (100 years or so), it is still one of the industry leaders and continues to produce reasonably high quality products.  Also, the Hoover vacuum cleaner range is very wide...

Who Are Hoover?

Hoover is a brand name that is almost exclusively associated with the vacuum cleaner today, despite the fact that the company actually manufactures many other electrical household items and experiences great success doing so year in year out. The fact that a vacuum cleaner is also known colloquially as a Hoover in the UK pays testament to this. The history of the Hoover company is long and complex and we will explore it in some detail here before taking a look at what the company has to offer in terms of the modern day vacuum cleaner...
