6 Reasons For

Expert Reviews Are Average

This vacuum received an expert rating of 75% from toptenreviews.com.

Has a Brush Tool

The WindTunnel has a brush tool, which is unusual. Most of the other vacuums that came out more than two years ago do not have a brush tool.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other vacuums with a brush tool currently available including cheaper vacuum cleaners such as the AEG Ergorapido AG 18PLUS (£258.23).

Easy to Use

One customer said in their reviews that the Hoover WindTunnel was easy to use. Expert review site Toptenreviews.com mentioned “This vacuum has excellent filtration and is easy to use with its self-propelled action” in their review of the Hoover WindTunnel.

Good Technical Features

One Hoover WindTunnel reviewer considered that the Hoover WindTunnel had good features. Toptenreviews.com mentioned six years ago “This is a forceful vacuum with an abundance of useful features” in their Hoover WindTunnel review.

Owner Reviews Are Good

WindTunnel owners on average rated this vacuum cleaner 84 out of 100.

Hoover Vacuums Have Good Reviews

We calculated the average reviews for all Hoover vacuum cleaners and specifically for Hoover vacuums and found that in both cases Hoover had good reviews compared to other manufacturers.


4 Reasons Against

Not Good in Terms of Size

Two customers concluded that it was not heavy and bulky. Expert website Reviewed.com wrote “It's extremely heavy (20.26 pounds).” in their review of the Hoover WindTunnel. Reviewed.com also mentioned “Most heavy, wide vac”.

£72.49 Price Increase

Yesterday the price of the WindTunnel has increased by £72.49.

Expensive for a Vacuum of This Spec and Age

The price range of vacuums of this age and spec is from £51 to £930. We thought that this vacuum looks expensive for a vacuum of this spec and age.

Not Cordless

The WindTunnel is not cordless, although this is within the context that most of the other vacuums that have been around for a similar time to the WindTunnel are also not cordless.

Vacuums which are cordless that might also be worth considering include the ZB3010, or the ZB3006 both from Electrolux or the AEG Ergorapido AG 18PLUS (£258.23) which is also cheaper.
