Hoover vacuums are generally a smart solution for most homes, offering effective multipurpose cleaning in a lightweight and compact design, and at an affordable price. Hoover Sprint QuickVac confirms this theory. It is one of the most affordable, yet highly-rated, upright vacuums of this brand. Read below to find out more about it.
Corded Upright Bagless
10 amps (multi-cyclone technology)
Extension wand, combination crevice/brush tool
Hoover vacuum cleaners have become synonymous with quality and performance. This particular model has gathered thousands of user reviews, most of them positive.
They average a rating of 3.7 stars out of 5. This is not bad, considering many Hoover vacuum reviews focus on performance only, and fail to correlate it with the price.
Hoover Sprint does a great job on most surfaces, and many Hoover upright vacuum reviews confirm it. With the height of the cleaning head adjusted correspondingly and the proper tool attached, it can clean more than carpets and hard floors. This also makes it good for furniture, upholstery, and other above-floor surfaces.
Hoover Sprint QuickVac is an easy to handle device. It weighs 14.75, a little more by some standards, yet less than many upright vacuum cleaners.
Its wheels make it easy to steer and push around. The handle works as a quick-release system as well. The brush roll has an On/Off pedal that makes it easy to turn the device on and off.
The 23 feet cord length may not be enough for large homes. But, it will meet the needs of most condos, apartments, and small homes. Or, if you don't mind changing the cord every once in awhile, it won't be a big deal either.
The cleaning head features a roll-button that adjusts the height to the floor, optimizing the cleaning process according to the type of floor the device is used on. All controls are intuitive, although some Hoover vacuum reviews criticize their placement.
As mentioned above, the QuickVac is powered by a 10 amp motor and features the innovative multi-cyclone technology. On one hand, this means it provides considerable suction power and, on the other hand, it means it traps and retains even small dust and dirt particles.
Its latest function is supported by the two filters. The main one is made of foam and washable. The secondary one is a HEPA filter meant to avoid the release of particles greater than 0.3 microns back into the air.
A performance indicator warns when the filters need cleaning. Dirt is collected in a small but easy to remove and clean cup.
Although it does not come with many accessories, the Hoover Sprint QuickVac does its job. The height of the standard brush roll can be adjusted to three different positions. This can match the surface it is used on, like carpet or bare floor.
The extension wand and the 5 feet stretch hose make it useful for cleaning under the furniture and above the floor, up to a height of 7 feet. With the help of the combination crevice/brush tool, cleaning furniture and narrow areas is not an issue either.
This vacuum cleaner is quite affordable, especially for its specifications and suction power. Moreover, since it does not require filter and bag replacement, it helps users save even more money in the long run.
This vacuum cleaner has numerous strengths, representing a worthwhile investment for many homeowners. It is quite comfortable and easy to use for an upright vacuum. It has a wide cleaning path and a powerful motor featuring innovative dirt-trapping technology.
Its filters are highly effective at trapping and retaining dirt particles, and they are washable, eliminating the need to buy replacements. The performance indicator announces when the filters need washing so users do not need to worry about clogs or poor cleaning results.
Despite the fact that it does not feature special pet tools, this unit seems to clean pet hairs from the floor quite well. This is due to the smart design of its brush roll and its impressive suction power. All these strengths and more make it an attractive acquisition, especially given its surprisingly low price.
Indeed, a cheap upright vacuum like this one has to have its share of flaws. Luckily, they are neither many nor important. They do not impact the unit’s performance or value for the money. Instead, they are a matter of convenience and user-perception.
For example, some users complain about the lack of an automatic rewind function for the power cord. However, wrapping the cord around the dedicated hooks is very easy and takes only seconds. A rewind mechanism would surely add to the product’s price and weight and would, therefore, represent an unnecessary expense.
Another weakness of this unit would be the small size of the dirt cup. Although many users assured the dirt cup is large enough to store the dirt obtained during a full-house cleaning session, others claimed otherwise. A bigger cup would indeed increase the device’s dirt storage capacity. But, it is not an immediate necessity, considering the available cup is very easy to remove, empty, and even wash.
Finally, another complaint common to many Hoover vacuum cleaners is the noise level. Indeed, the QuickVac is not the most silent unit in its category, but it is not extremely noisy either. The noise is the direct result of the high suction power. Users will not have to put up with it for too long, given the fact that the unit is very efficient and the cleaning session will not last more than a few minutes.
An affordable yet powerful and efficient bagless upright vacuum cleaner, the Hoover Sprint QuickVac represents an investment worth considering for many households, especially small ones, where pet hairs are not an issue.
Affordable yet highly-rated, easy to use upright vacuum suitable for pet owners.
