Summary of the Hoover WindTunnel Pet Rewind UH70210

Build Quality of the Hoover WindTunnel Pet Rewind

The overall build quality of the Hoover WindTunnel Pet Rewind “t” Series Rewind is generally good for a pet hair vacuum in this price range.  Like other manufactures Hoover uses a lot of recycled plastic in their injection molded parts to cut down on costs. This results in parts that are not as strong as parts molded from virgin thermo resins like some of the much higher-priced pet hair vacuums.

Watch this Cool VIDEO Demo!

However, because of the otherwise good engineering, the UH70210 Hoover WindTunnel Pet Rewind is quite sturdy and does not have that mushy feeling common in many lower-priced vacuums.
The motor is the same motor used in my old Hoover WindTunnel Rewind (not the Pet version) and mine has been running strong since 2008 with heavy use.

(UPDATED April 16, 2017 I still use my old Hoover WindTunnel every day!)

Vacuum Power and Performance

The Hoover proprietary system of channeling the air from the vacuum nozzle to the capture reservoir called WindTunnel Technology is a proven system.  This means it will clean as well on either side as well as it cleans in the middle of the vacuum head.

What most people don’t realize is that it doesn’t take a lot of vacuum suction power to lift up dirt, most debris, and pet hair once it is loosened from the carpet fibers and set in motion by the beater brush or roll brush. However, the vacuum power created by the 12 amp motor on the Hoover WindTunnel Pet Rewind is well in excess of the power necessary to operate the brush bar without stalling in deep carpet pile plus lift the loosened dirt, debris, and hair out of the carpet and transport it to the dirt bin reservoir.
So the combination of a well-designed air flow system, a properly adjusted brush bar, and a powerful motor are the necessary ingredients for good cleaning characteristics and the 70210 Hoover the WindTunnel Pet Rewind has all Three!  It does an excellent job of vacuuming up Pet Hair from carpet!

Wood and Hard Floor Vacuuming

The 70210 Hoover WindTunnel Pet Rewind features a 5 Position manually adjustable Brush Roll (which I prefer instead of Automatic).  This allows you to set the vacuum head down to where the brush roll is just contacting the floor. It also has a Foot-Operated On/Off pedal which disengages the brush roll so it doesn’t fling dirt and debris away from the vacuum head.

My old Hoover WindTunnel does a very good job of picking up all the debris that ends up on my hardwood floors and tile floors from my 4 parrots (fancy chickens) when used like this.
However, it does leave some of fine dust behind that is held there by static electricity.

The 70210 Hoover WindTunnel Pet Rewind is not the Best Vacuum for Hardwood Floors but it does do a very decent job when used correctly like I described.

Pros

    • 5 Position manually adjustable Beater Brush is a feature which I consider very important.
    • Engage/Disengage Selector Pedal that allows you to disengage the beater brush when vacuuming hard floor so the brush doesn’t fling dirt and debris out the back. This is also an excellent feature to have when you want to vacuum a light weight mat or throw rug so it doesn’t get tangled up.
    • Auto-Disengage Beater Brush when you raise the handle to the upright position. This allows you to use the extension hose and attachments without the brush rubbing on your carpet and I think every upright vacuum should have this feature!
    • Auto-Rewind for the 27 foot long power cord is another feature I have really appreciated on my old Hoover. Hoover has about the most dependable auto-rewind system available.
      Fold-Down Handle is a very unique feature which makes for easy storage.
    • Easy Access to clean the beater brush and change the belt when it eventually breaks.
    • High-Capacity cleanable Charcoal Filter that absorbs the smelly pet odors. Washable HEPA filter that does a good job of trapping allergy causing pet dander and dust mite feces and saves you money not having to buy a replacement.
    • System Check Indicator alerts the user when the rinsable filter, HEPA and Carbon filters need to be cleaned or checked. This can also alert you to a blockage which is common when vacuuming clumps of pet hair.
    • The Turbo-Tool has molded rubber-like blades instead of bristles that really does an excellent job of removing pet hair from upholstery and carpeted stairs.
    • Power Controls are at your fingertips where they should be! This may not seem like a dealmaker for you but this feature allows you to keep your attention on your cleaning and not have to look away for the switch like many other vacuums.
    • No-Scuff Bumpers help protect your furniture.
    • Built-In Dirt Finder utilizes Sonic Technology that lets you know when you are vacuuming up dirt or if you are wasting time vacuuming clean carpet.

Cons

    • Every vacuum I have ever reviewed has had some shortcomings that resulted in customer complaints. I really appreciate customer feedback because it can be very helpful. But it can also unintentionally misrepresent an otherwise good product because the customer didn’t read the instruction manual.
    • A lot of customers complain that the extension hose is too short at only 8 feet fully expanded and that it can cause the vacuum to tip over. All you have to do is simply turn the vacuum to face you while you are using the hose and it won’t tip over. Another solution is investing in an extension hose (Available Below) that allows you to park the vacuum in the middle of the room and be able to reach every corner of a large room and top to bottom of stairs without tipping it over.
    • Some customers complain that the Dirt Bin isn’t handy to dump. Like most other bagless vacuums it does require two hands to operate. As is pointed out in the Video, dirt, debris, and hair can get stuck around the cyclone in the dirt bin, but a simple stick or coat hanger easily removes it.
    • “The Attachments or Accessories are only average in quality” but adequate! This is a symptom of the economics. With reasonable care they will last like mine have.
    • Some complain because the Auto-Rewind feature allows the cord to exit the vacuum near the bottom which can get under foot. If you Read the Instruction Manual you will see there is a little hook or clip on the back of the vacuum just below the handle. This will keep the cord out of your way.

The 17.8 pounds is lighter than average for a full size upright pet hair vacuum but may be a bit heavy for a physically challenged person or if your home is multi-level.

My old Hoover WindTunnel has seen a lot of hard use and has never let me down. 6 (Updated 10) years of service is a good record for any vacuum at any price.

Hoover has not changed the basics including the motor so with a little care yours should last you a long time also.

My personal experience with my 6 (Updated 10) year old Hoover WindTunnel is that the vacuum power and cleaning performance is as good as my expensive commercial vacuum.

All considered the Hoover WindTunnel Pet Rewind UH70210 is one of the top rated pet hair vacuums priced under $150.
