Hoover has always made great vacuum cleaners. Some are really cheap and basic while others are at the higher end of the price spectrum. In all cases, Hoover vacuums offer outstanding value for money. Their cheap models aren’t nasty, like so many cheap vacuums from lesser known brands. When it comes to the high-end products, expensive Hoover vacuum cleaners aren’t the most expensive that you’ll find, but offer very much the same quality and a lot of the features that you’ll find on really expensive machines.
The Hoover PowerDrive Pet Bagless vacuum cleaner (model UH74210PC) fits neatly into the middle of their price range. So this is a very affordable pet hair vacuum cleaner with a level of build quality and many great features that come close to their top of the range offerings. In a nutshell, if you’re looking for a good pet hair vacuum cleaner that’s not going to break the bank, the Hoover PowerDrive Pet should certainly grab your attention. This review is going to shed some light on this remarkable upright vacuum cleaner and allow you to decide if this very popular machine is the right one for you.
The Hoover PowerDrive Pet vacuum cleaner has incredible suction. The cleaning head has been expertly designed, using wind tunnel technology to give it improved suction. In addition to this, the multi-cyclonic suction system keeps the suction constant and perfectly strong. The high-powered suction of the Hoover PowerDrive Pet vacuum is aided by a really effective brush roll that can be switched off for an easy transition to hard floors. The switch for controlling the brush roll is at your fingertips, so this is made as easy as it can be.
The 13-foot extended wand makes it super easy to reach difficult and high places. It has a really comfortable handle with a good grip, so it’s no hassle when working above head height. There are three fantastic attachments that you can use with the wand. You’ll get the usual crevice tool and dusting brush attachments and a very effective pet hair removal tool – perfect for removing pet hair and fine debris from your furniture and hard to reach areas.
As far as upright vacuum cleaners go, the Hoover PowerDrive Pet is really easy to use. It has swivel steering and bright LED lights on the cleaning head. The roller brush does not easily become clogged with hair – another advantage for pet owners. It’s reasonably light at 16-pounds but may be a little bulky. This means that the Hoover PowerDrive isn’t as easy to use under furniture as a sleeker vacuum cleaner with a low profile suction head. If I were to look for a downside to the beautiful Hoover, this would be it.
It’s a bagless vacuum cleaner with washable filters, so there are basically no additional running costs. The dust cup is really quick and easy to empty and just as hygienic. The filters are excellent and perfect for people with allergies, removing dust and airborne particles down to 0.5 microns.
The Hoover brand has been trusted in homes around the world for over a century. This certainly plays in favor of the Hoover Pet vacuum cleaner and this is one of their better offerings. With the assurance of a brand that is serious about quality and after sales service, I wouldn’t hesitate to buy a Hoover vacuum cleaner. This model is particularly attractive for its spec level, build quality and affordability.
