The Hoover UH30600 is a bagged upright model with multiple height adjustments and anti-allergen filtration. The machine is a budget option for those looking for a vacuum to make the everyday cleaning in an apartment or small house.
The Hoover WindTunnel Max Bagged Upright — UH30600 — has 15.7 x 12.5 x 31.8 inches in size and weighs 14.99 pounds. It is not a lightweight device. Still, all the heavier items usually feature larger suction power, and this model is not an exception. Besides, the vacuum boasts a long hose that reaches 17 feet with the extension wand. The 15-inch wide nozzle provides a wide cleaning path.
The Hoover WindTunnel UH30600 copes with any surface if the user chooses the right carpet height or a bare floor level for cleaning hard floors. This unit uses the WindTunnel MAX tech with 3 suction channels. That’s why the suction power leaves no chance for both large and fine dirt to remain on the floor or rug. At the same time, the device lacks suction control that might become a problem for delicate surfaces.
The anti-allergen HEPA filtration provides clean air in the room while vacuuming and no harmful particles in the working area. The secondary and last filters are washable. I’d recommend emptying the bag before it’s getting completely full to avoid clogging.
In this Hoover WindTunnel Max UH30600 review, I’d like to note the plastic vacuum base and other parts that look sturdy. The handle features two positions. It stays upright when the vacuum is not in use, being angled during the operation. The vacuum has a headlight, but it's located on the vertical part of the unit, pointing up at the wall instead of illuminating the working area. However, it lacks an automatically retracted cord.
The dial with 7 carpet height adjustments is in the center of the main vacuum head. The brush roll on/off pedal is on the right. The UH30600 Hoover has the bag check indicator right on the vacuum base to know when it’s time to empty the cloth bag or replace the paper one.
The Air-Powered hand tool and a clip to reach tight places and clean upholstered stairs, crevice, upholstery tools, and telescoping wand. All the vacuum’s extras are easy to install in a single click without wasting efforts on pushing them into place. However, they fall off the base sometimes. There are no spare Hoover UH30600 bags in the set of accessories, but they are easy to find.
This vacuum is a win-win solution for pet owners and those who have mostly bare floors and regular rugs. The nonadjustable suction power can damage expensive and delicate carpets. It’s a bit heavy for old people or children, but other users will be happy to see such a simple device.
