The best vacuum cleaners have to be completely reliable when you need to do a complete sweep of your carpet and floors. Innovations in technology are always bringing new features in this dynamic industry so you should try and keep in touch with the latest vacuum cleaner trends and models to make household chores easier. Going cordless is one of the latest developments in the floor-care industry, so it’s essential to look at both corded and cordless options out there.

You have to admit that Hoover has some of the best lightweight vacuum cleaners available on the market. As a leader in the floor-care industry, their job is to manufacture high-performance vacuums for home and commercial use. Their line of vacuum cleaners consists of general and special-purpose uprights, deep cleaners and hard surface cleaners.

Hoover vacuum cleaners suck, but in a good way. Let’s take a look at some of the best Hoover cleaners available for 2018.

Hoover Vacuum Cleaner Linx Bagless Corded SH20030 Review

This stick vacuum is a handy tool for cleaning apartments or small houses. At around 9 lbs, it’s an extremely lightweight and maneuverable cleaner for everyday vacuuming. It has an amazing reclining handle so reaching under furniture or other hard-to-access spots can be cleaned in a breeze.

Hoover Vacuum Cleaner Linx Bagless Corded SH20030 Review

Don’t think that the compact size of the unit means less suctioning power or cleaning efficiency. This is a well-designed vacuum cleaner by Hoover which uses WindTunnel Technology for deep cleansing of any carpet or hard surface. The powered Brushroll with Cyclonic Technology allows users to switch seamlessly from hard surface cleaning to carpet cleaning. One problem with the switch is that it’s inconveniently placed at the front of the machine, meaning you’ll have to move positions to switch modes. This isn’t too big a deal but it does become annoying over time.

Pet owners can benefit from the Hoover SH20030 as it does a perfect job in picking up stray pet hair and large pieces of debris. Another good feature is that the multi-cyclonic suction keeps the washable foam filters clean for longer and prevents a decrease in suction power.

Hoover Vacuum Cleaner Linx Bagless Corded SH20030 Review

The SH20030 is bagless so all dust particles and debris will be placed in a small dust cup of about one quart capacity. Removing the dust cup is done with a press of a button. However, some users have complained of the quart-sized dust cup being too small and needs to be emptied after each use of a full house cleaning. Remember that this is a compact vacuum cleaner, and the dust cup will also be compact in size to reduce weight.

Hoover Cruise Ultra Light Cordless Vacuum, BH52210 Review

This is a versatile vacuum cleaner that really gives Dyson vacuum cleaners a run for their money. They look similar, and have some of the same features, but the Hoover BH52210 is much lighter on your wallet, whereas a similar Dyson model can cost you upwards of $200.

Hoover Cruise Ultra Light Cordless Vacuum, BH52210 Review

The first thing worth noting is the design. It’s vital that the design of a light cordless vacuum completely supports cleaning hard to reach places. With the BH52210, you shouldn’t have any problems. Its light build and extra long pole also makes it easy to handle when reaching high spots.

Some vacuum cleaners specialize in cleaning hard floors or carpets, but this Hoover model does well in both worlds. Maneuvering can become limited with certain models, making it extremely important to find one unit that can perform well on both surfaces. The BH52210 is that model. Transit from hard surfaces to low pile carpeting is done with switching the brush modes specifically built for each surface.

Accessories are also another important factor in choosing the right vacuum cleaner. This unit comes with an upholstery tool, dusting brush, crevice tool, and a wall mount. The comprehensive selection of accessories makes doing a thorough cleaning of the house much easier.

Hoover Cruise Ultra Light Cordless Vacuum, BH52210 Review

In an ideal world, a machine like this wouldn’t have any drawbacks. Unfortunately, we live in the real world where nothing is perfect. One common problem that customers have with the BH52210 is its maneuvering head for cleaning around furniture. Sometimes the swivel acts on its own accord and makes unexpected turns. Another issue is the suction power which, although it’s strong on carpets, seems pretty weak on flat surfaces. Some people have to run over a spot repeatedly in order to pick up every last hair or dust particle.

Hoover Linx Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner, BH50010 Review

Living in a small home or apartment means needing a compact vacuum cleaner that does thorough cleaning. Looking at this unit, it seems to be the right size for fitting in small places. The BH50010 is perfect for small home cleaning and it’s lightweight enough to do it efficiently.

Hoover Linx Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner, BH50010 Review

It has an 11-inch clearing path which means it covers a whole lot of ground in one sweep. The brushes found at the bottom of the head gets caked-on pieces off the ground with ease, and the unit can suck it right up. That’s the genius of the two operation modes: suction only, and suction plus brushroll.

There are several features of the BH50010 that make it a likable vacuum cleaner. Those are the LED status bar which reminds the user how much power the battery has, reclining handle for getting into those hard to reach places under furniture and beds, and the cleaning mode switch for the aforementioned suction and brushrolll modes.

Hoover Linx Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner, BH50010 Review

When you think of taking a swing at vacuuming the house, convenience is top priority. Who likes having to move cables around or trip over extensions so your vacuum can get into all the rooms? The convenience this model comes with is the cordless design and 20-minute battery power for quick and thorough cleaning. However, 20 minutes can also be a problem if you can’t get all the work done in that time frame, especially if you have a large house.

Hoover BH50020PC Linx Signature Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner Review

The BH50020PC by Hoover is an inexpensive cordless cleaner, useful for cleaning messes in a small to medium sized area. The Li-ion battery can be removed to charge separately from the unit or while still inside of the vacuum cleaner. You should be able to get 15 minutes tops out of use in one charge.

Hoover BH50020PC Linx Signature Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner Review

This cordless model by Hoover makes cleaning the house extra convenient. Going wireless means not having to wrestle with tangled cables in order to thoroughly clean your floors and furniture. This unit was built for small home and apartment owners who need maximum cleaning in a limited area.

The lightweight design makes working the vacuum cleaner in all of your rooms a breeze. You won’t have to worry about lugging around a piece of equipment to get the job done. With this easy to handle vacuum, you’ll find yourself able to do a full sweep and hardly break a sweat.

The reclining design of the handle also makes for easy cleaning under furniture pieces and beds. Lifting or shifting heavy sofas for a comprehensive carpet cleaning is a thing of the past. The two options for cleaning carpets and smooth surfaces is also a handy feature, and the suction power of the BH50020 makes vacuuming both surfaces easy to do.

Hoover BH50020PC Linx Signature Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner Review

The good thing about the battery is that you can remove it from the unit and charge separately in a charging dock, or you can charge it directly from the vacuum cleaner. This feature is available for many Hoover cordless models, but it’s still worth mentioning.

However, a common problem people have with this lightweight cordless model is its inability to handle flat items like stamps or shreds of paper. They often experience clogging, meaning manually removing the piece from the brushes before resuming work.

Hoover BH52100PC Stick Vacuum Cleaner Review

Hoover boasts of the BH52100PC’s consistent suction power in both upright mode and handheld mode. Their WindTunnel technology makes sure of this, and it’s guaranteed to perform as well as other Hoover upright-only models. It’s suction power is decent, but you might have to run over the same spot repeatedly to pick up every single last piece of dust or hair.

Hoover BH52100PC Stick Vacuum Cleaner Review

The BH52100PC is a compact cordless vacuum cleaner which can run for about 15 minutes on a single charge, long enough to do a quick sweep of a small home or apartment. Unfortunately, it takes an astounding 9 hours to charge to full capacity before draining the battery.

A neat feature of this cordless model is its LED lights which not only illuminate dark spaces for catching little piece of debris, but it also shines light on small dust particles, making it easier to perform a thorough cleaning on both smooth and carpet surfaces.

At a push of a button, you can remove the handheld portion of the BH52100PC to clean upholstery. It does reasonably well cleaning couch cushions and whatnot, but requires an extra accessory (sold separately) for sucking up pet hair and lint.

Hoover BH52100PC Stick Vacuum Cleaner Review

To make the unit more compact, Hoover had to reduce the size of its dust cup for this bagless cordless model. Unfortunately, many users find the dust cup to be too small and had to empty it out midway or right after vacuuming. This shouldn’t be too much of an issue, but it does sort of reduce the convenience that a small vacuum cleaner is supposed to have.

Hoover REACT Whole Home Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner, BH53210 Review

The Hoover REACT model is an excellent piece of floor-cleaning technology. This is a relatively new line from Hoover which combines both upright and stick models for versatility. The motor is located on one end of the unit while the floor tool is found on the opposite end, allowing for easy switching from upright mode to handheld.

Hoover REACT Whole Home Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner, BH53210 Review

The FloorSense Technology in the BH53210 does a reasonably good job in automatically identifying which surface (smooth or carpet) the unit is currently vacuuming on. This helps optimize cleaning performance when moving from one surface to the other. On carpets, the brush roll spins at a quicker RPM than on hard surfaces, and it’s all automated so you won’t have to manually control the modes.

This unit is not able to stand on its own, but that’s what the wall mount is for. It also helps save space by lifting your Hoover off the ground. Unfortunately, it cannot be charged while hanging on the wall mount. You’ll have to remove the battery and place it in the charging dock.

Hoover REACT Whole Home Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner, BH53210 Review

Speaking of batteries, the BH53210 has a battery which can power the vacuum cleaner for about 30 minutes. This should be enough time to clean multiple rooms in a large home or even the whole floor of small houses and apartments. The rapid charging technology fully charges the battery in 3 hours.

Another interesting feature of this model is its smartphone app. The app shows the remaining battery and tutorials on how to perform simple maintenance tasks to keep your Hoover in perfect condition.

Hoover FUSION Max Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner, BH53110 Review

The FUSION series by Hoover is essentially the REACT with minute differences. However, some people may find these differences significant enough to purchase one over the other. Both are cordless and can clean for roughly 30 minutes on a full charge and recharge in 3 hours. Both are adequate at cleaning hard surfaces and carpets. And both are lightweight and can switch from upright mode to handheld mode for cleaning various places.

Hoover FUSION Max Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner, BH53110 Review

One difference between the REACT and FUSION is the smartphone app. The FUSION series does not have this app, and some customers appreciate this. It seems kind of pointless having an app which shows the remaining battery when you can see it from the handle display. Also, videos about simple maintenance tasks are on the YouTube so there’s no reason to open the app specifically to watch these videos.

This unit does not use FloorSense technology to automatically switch from carpet mode to hard surface mode. At a push of a button, you can manually control which surface mode you want to use. The dry nozzle head on the BH53110 is built for smooth surface suctioning but also works well on carpets. The brush roll window on the head means that you can see what’s being sucked up and what’s wrapped around the brush roll.

Hoover FUSION Max Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner, BH53110 Review

Something unique on this model is the interface which doesn’t just tell you the remaining battery power, but also reminds you when you need to empty the dust cup and when the foam filter needs to be washed or replaced. Another cool feature is the wall mount which don’t just keep your Hoover off the ground, but it also has special slots for your attachments.

Hoover Commercial Vacuum Cleaner CH20110 Review

This is a slightly beefier version of the Linx Stick by Hoover. Despite being larger, they both have the same suctioning power so you should expect the same performance. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, since the Linx does a thorough job with sweeping smooth surfaces and carpets.

Hoover Commercial Vacuum Cleaner CH20110 Review

This unit uses the same Wind Tunnel Technology for deep cleaning. This technology makes the vacuum brush roll able to pick up both small and large pieces of debris quickly and effectively. Some people have complained of having to run over the same spot more than once in order to pick every little piece of debris up off of smooth surfaces, but that’s a common problem in many stick vacuums.

This cordless cleaner comes with a 18V lithium-ion battery. The unit comes with an interchangeable battery and a charging dock so you can clean while the other battery charges in the dock. There’s no official running time per full charge released by Hoover but customers say it’s between 15 and 30 minutes. Not too bad for a commercial-sized cordless cleaner to be honest.

Hoover Commercial Vacuum Cleaner CH20110 Review

In general, the CH20110 model by Hoover is an excellent choice for people with small or even large homes or apartments. It works well on both smooth surfaces and carpets, and picks up most of the debris in one single sweep. Despite being a beefier model, it’s still relatively lightweight and easy to maneuver around the house. The powerful 18V battery means the machine works at full power for a long period of time. The second battery that comes with the unit is also handy for when you have to clean large areas or multiple rooms.

Hoover PowerBrush Wind Tunnel Corded Bagless Cyclonic Stick Vacuum Review

The Wind Tunnel Technology on this Hoover stick vacuum cleaner means thorough cleaning for picking up dusty, medium-sized debris, and even messes that are embedded in your carpet. The 11A motor fully supports deep cleaning, so less repeated sweeps are needed for picking up every little particle.

Hoover PowerBrush Wind Tunnel Corded Bagless Cyclonic Stick Vacuum Review

This model comes with a 30-foot cord so re-plugging shouldn’t be too much of an issue. With 30 feet of cord, you can clean multiple rooms and large areas with ease, although it may be a hassle having to re-plug it into other outlets for a complete vacuuming.

This 3-in-1 cleaner comes with a 30-inch extension wand for suctioning curtains and other vertical objects, and an 8-foot stair hose for cleaning steps without lifting the vacuum cleaner. The hose for quick cleaning releases with a touch of a button for above-floor cleaning.

This 12 lbs vacuum cleaner is relatively light and maneuvers with ease. Users won’t have too much of an issue lugging this thing around, though it is significantly heavier than the cordless models Hoover produces. Still, with the features and extra hoses, you won’t have to lift the cleaner up over your head for thorough cleaning.

Hoover PowerBrush Wind Tunnel Corded Bagless Cyclonic Stick Vacuum Review

The dirt cup is also detached with a push of a button. You’ll have to empty the cup out regularly to prevent overheating which, some customers say, can reduce suction power and ultimately damage the unit, requiring professional repairs to get it working perfectly again.

One problem that people have with this vacuum cleaner by Hoover is its limited reclining which unexpectedly snaps back to the upright position. This should be a problem if you’re careful and prevent it from going too far up when operating, but it’s still a problem nonetheless.

Hoover Presto 2-in-1 Cordless Stick Vacuum, Grey Review

This 2-in-1 cordless vacuum by Hoover is a handy cleaner for vacuuming every space in your house. Whether it’s just the floor that needs a sweep (either hard wood or carpet), or above-floor spaces, this vacuum cleaner can do it all.

Hoover Presto 2-in-1 Cordless Stick Vacuum, Grey Review

The 14.4V motor is pretty decent for a 2-in-1 machine, though it’s not as powerful as some upright models. However, in handheld mode, it performs beautifully. In fact, it’s probably a better handheld device than it is an upright one. This can be seen by the suctioning power: you’ll have to go over one spot repeatedly on a smooth surface to pick ever dust particle up, but it performs well when cleaning curtains.

The battery is a weak point of the model. It runs for 20 minutes – enough for multiple rooms or one large area – but requires six to eight hours of charging before reaching full capacity. You’ll either need a second battery to keep up the flow of constant vacuuming, or you’ll have to wait forever before resuming work.

This Presto model by Hoover comes with an HEPA filter, which means that the filter can be used to trap particles that non-HEPA filters usually shoot back into the air. This is a plus for catching pet dander and other airborne allergens.

Hoover Presto 2-in-1 Cordless Stick Vacuum, Grey Review

Overall, this device probably won’t be enough to clean a large house, but its 20-minute charge should do a thorough job for many rooms. The HEPA-grade filter is an amazing feature on a device that performs somewhat decently. This is probably best to be kept as a secondary vacuum cleaner for light messes.

Conclusion

And this concludes the list of Hoover vacuum cleaners. For a century-old company, they do a great job in keeping up with the times with floor-cleaning innovations. Whether you’re in the market for a cordless cleaner or a corded option with a cable long enough to support room-to-room cleaning, Hoover has it all.

Whatever features you want from your vacuum, rest assured that they won’t leave a large dent on your finances. There’s very little that can go wrong with these inexpensive lightweight vacuum cleaners.
