Hoover Windtunnel T Series Rewind Plus UH70120 Review
This Hoover UH70120 became a top-selling upright vacuum the moment it came out. The vacuum owes its popularity to some major upgrades over the previous T series models. Unlike other vacuums, it comes with an air-powered hand tool which will be an expense if you buy it separately.
T series vacuums like UH30600 do not feature the automatic height adjustment according to the floor types. Small upgrades such as the indicator light for filter replacement and onboard tool storage make UH70120 a perfect vacuum cleaner package.
While vacuums face difficulty with high-pile carpets and the deeply embedded debris in them, UH70120 features great suction for all kinds of carpet floors. On top of all this, it has been priced just right for the value it offers when we compare it with other Hoover T Series models.
The stand-out feature in the design of this bagless vacuum has to be its color scheme. It seems like an avocado-colored junk with clunky technology at first look. Take a step further, and then you realize its fine build, shiny and durable body, and compact design.
It uses two major colons: gray and dirty green from the avocado family, with hints and lines of red at two to three spots. The red really gives a pop of color to the dull but classic design. The vacuum looks like a heavy upright vacuum, but it comes with a sturdy handle to carry it around easily.
The cord-rewind feature makes it a compact one for better storage and carriage. Also, all the cleaning tools such as the upholstery tool, wand, and nozzle go on the vacuum itself. The vacuum also features a holder to keep the hose in place while operating.
The Hoover upright vacuum measures 44 inches in height and 16 inches in width, making it an average-sized vacuum cleaner. The vacuum body also features a knob with clear demarcations for changing cleaning modes. A light indicator on the front signals when the HEPA filter needs to be changed.
Features of Hoover UH70120
Hoover Windtunnel Rewind Plus has the following prominent features:
Hoover UH70120 features an operating noise level of around 88 decibels. This is no doubt above average, but it does not sound unbearable. Besides, Hoover gets its job done in no time, so you will not be keeping up with the noise for long.
Long, Retractable Power Cord
Hoover Windtunnel Rewind Plus features a dependably long 27-inch power cord, which provides sufficient reach without changing sockets. The fact that it is retractable really adds to its compact design and convenience. Just press a button, and the power cord zips inside. The retract button is placed on the foot end to make it effortless as ever.
This vacuum uses two filters. The one on the top of the dirt compartment is washable. So, you can simply wash it instead of replacing it whenever it gets dirty. The one at the bottom is the anti-allergen HEPA filter that flawlessly prevents the dirt and particles from escaping back into the air.
The second filter cannot be washed but is removable. It needs to be tapped to keep it clean. Hoover says, if the filter is maintained well, it can go as long as two years. After that, the vacuum will tell you to replace it with the indicator light on the front.
Floor Cleaning Options
Hoover Windtunnel Rewind Plus offers five different cleaning options. You get to choose height adjustment and cleaning options for different floor types such as hardwood, high-pile, and low-pile carpets.
8-Foot Stretch Hose
The hose can be stretched up to 8 feet to reach tall heights. This will help vacuum the walls and top of the shelves and cupboards. Besides, you can vacuum a large space without having to limit the reach or changing sockets.
Hoover WindTunnel Technology
Hoover uses its unique Windtunnel technology, which creates deep suction for removing the surface debris as well as the dirt, particles, and allergens deeply embedded in the carpets and furniture.
This is paired up with the multi-cyclonic HEPA filtration system, which seals and locks the dirt and debris once it is sucked and segregated in the dirt compartment. Together, these make our Hoover Windtunnel a hard-to-miss cleaning package.
Hoover Windtunnel Rewind Plus comes with four additional attachments to fulfill your cleaning needs:
- A 12-inch extension wand
- A crevice tool
- Dusting brush or the upholstery tool
- An accessory clip to hold the additional tools on the vacuum itself
- A motorized brush roll
Performance of Hoover UH70120
Hoover UH70120 is your champion vacuum if you have a lot of carpeting in your home or workspace. The suction power is just fine, and it uses a motorized brush tool to lift deeply embedded dirt and debris. The same brush performs really well in cleaning pet hair and vacuuming spaces like stairs and upholstery, thanks to the attachment tools that accompany it.
We also tested the UH70120 on bare floors, and the performance is not as extraordinary as it is on carpets. The main reason for this is that the brush cannot be turned off. So, all it does on hardwood or bare floors are spread and scatter the dirt and won’t let the vacuum suck it.
Besides, the vacuum lacks edge cleaning brushes or even a swivel steering. So, to clean the edges along the walls, you will need the crevice tool.
Hoover Windtunnel offers a fair degree of maneuverability given its optimum weight of only around 16 pounds, which is a great pro compared to other upright vacuums. The hose is 8-feet long and is stretchable, which pairs up with the 27-inch-long power cord to provide maximum reach.
This Hoover vacuum does not feature a swivel steering which does limit its maneuverability. But its lightweight and flexible hose almost makes up for it.
Maintenance costs are only mediocre with the Hoover Windtunnel because the primary filter is washable, and the other one is a high-quality HEPA filter. If you maintain both the filters well with regular emptying of the compartment, the filters can stay as far as a year.
On average, if you vacuum your space frequently, you may need to replace your HEPA filter after six months. Another important maintenance cost is the stretch belt or the vacuum belt. You will need to replace it after 12 months.
Hoover UH70120 is easy to set up. You only need a screwdriver and almost 10 minutes to get it started. After that, all you have to do is plug it in and test vacuum your place! It is quite convenient when it comes to different floor types.
It transitions effortlessly from carpets to hardwood and back to the carpet. All you have to do is adjust the knob to your desired floor type, and the vacuum will adjust its height and function accordingly.
Benefits of Hoover UH70120
Hoover Windtunnel provides a compact, presentable, classic-looking upright vacuum cleaner for your house and workplace. The retractable power cord, hose holder, and the accessory clip that keeps the cleaning tools in place together make it compact and easily manageable.
The vacuum can adjust the height of the vacuum head according to the carpet height. The suction power also varies accordingly so that high-demand areas get the required efficiency for impeccable vacuuming. The vacuum is great for getting rid of pet hair in particular.
The filter on the top of the dirt compartment can be maintained for a long. The HEPA filter is located at the bottom and houses allergen seal technology. As far as the HEPA filter is concerned, the light indicator will turn red from green to signal the replacement of the filter.
Hoover UH70120 performs exceptionally well on all kinds of carpets. It is actually a carpet specialist. You can adjust the height of the vacuum by simply rotating the knob located just on the front. The motorized brush specifically lifts the dirt and debris for suction.
