The Hoover WindTunnel 2 Whole House Rewind upright vacuum is a versatile bagged unit that adjusts to match hardwood floors or rugs and copes with even the thickest carpets. It is very powerful and easy to use, removing dirt and unpleasant odors.
The vacuum's size is 13 x 13.5 x 44.5 inches, and its weight is 16.1 pounds. The Hoover UH71250 has a power cord of 25 feet long and the cleaning reach of 16 feet that is enough to clean ceilings and other hard-to-reach places in the room. The dust cup capacity is low – 1.29 liters only.
The Hoover WindTunnel 2 is made for cleaning all types of bare and carpet flooring, but the carpet cleaning is more impressive, as the device leaves some debris on hard surfaces. Still, the unit is packed with such advanced features as the Allergen Block Technology, the HEPA filtration to make cleaning safe for people with allergies, and the Odor-Absorbing Carbon tech helps remove smells (it works as adsorbent).
The cleaning suction has two stages to lift particles of all sizes and fractions from the floor and to suck them inside the device. The unit doesn’t lose power when it toggles between floor and carpet cleaning thanks to the Multi-Cyclonic tech. It has a hard floor level and up to five levels to select the necessary one from the bare floor to a thick rug.
The Hoover WindTunnel 2 Rewind vacuum has an automatic shutdown feature that protects the motor from damage if it is clogged or overheated. Nevertheless, it’s easy to avoid such troubles since the indicator switches from green to red to notify the user that the canister has reached its full capacity. Note that except for emptying and rinsing the tank, it's necessary to wash a filter. The latter needs up to 36 hours to dry before being put back into the vacuum.
The UH71250 vacuum is designed in blue or red colors. It has two main wheels at the back and wide rollers behind the rotating brush. They are made of hard plastic that might be a problem for delicate floors.
The power cable retracts in a second and the easily stretched hose provides high mobility. There is no problem with the frequent unwanted detaching, unlike many other low-cost models. However, the connection between the hose and the canister with a rubber piece pressed against the canister looks flimsy. The tank is detached from the device through a single release of a button. When the vacuum is upright, a lever on the side turns on and shuts the rollers off, so they don't automatically go on.
The Hoover UH71250 comes with several attachments:
Besides, there is a wand in the package to add length to a hose.
The Hoover WindTunnel 2 Whole House Rewind is the appropriate choice for those having many rugs, drapes, and other soft surfaces/items in the rooms. Due to the implemented techs, the entry-level but still quality device has a great value for pet owners that have to struggle with the stubborn fur and hair.
