Hoover generously donated 2 of the Platinum Collection Lightweight Bagged Upright with Portable Canister Vacuums (Retail Price $399.99). One for review and another for one very very very lucky Mom Fuse Reader! Keep reading for your chance to win!
Before I get to the details ladies, I just wanted to let you know how awesome this vacuum is. When hubby got home from the store I already had the vacuum out of the box and was trying it out. When my husband walked in and saw how much fun I was having his first words were “Here let me see that thing.” So I let him check it out and try it out. I never got it back! He was having such a good time he ended up vacuuming the entire downstairs himself and then asked if I had done the upstairs yet. Trust me, I wouldn’t have believed it myself if I didn’t see it with my own two eyes! In the years we’ve been together I’ve seen him vacuum once, now twice, and NEVER had I heard him ask me if he could do more… never!
Before hubby took over the first thing I noticed was how light the vacuum is. Weighing in at 10 lbs, it is lighter than my one of my 7 month old twins – they weigh in at 16 lbs. Remember those old vacuums that were so heavy and hard to move around? Oh I how I dreaded sweeping the upstairs at that time! Well, with the Hoover Platinum Collection Lightweight Bagged Upright it’s a breeze to maneuver and transport.
With the WindTunnel Technology, this bagged upright has some major power to back it up. It may be a lightweight vacuum but it’s definitely powerful. We have a dog who sheds a lot and with our old vacuum I had to go over the same spot a couple of times just to get all of the hair, with the Hoover it only took one time and it picked up everything. It’s also easy to maneuver because it almost glides itself over the carpet. I barely did any pushing, just helped it navigate really.
It has a check bag light indicator so you know that your bag is full. The bag itself is self-sealing so you don’t have to worry about those pesky dirt puffs escaping.
The portable canister that is included with the sweeper is smaller and has the same power. It works anywhere and is great for cleaning up those little messes. The canister also comes with attachments to make cleaning in those tough to reach corners a snap. I even used it to reach the top of the ceiling fan to get a few dust balls off there. I could never have done this with any of our old vacuums. It has a detachable shoulder strap making it easy to transport and it’s light enough that it doesn’t hurt your back.
This is no doubt the best vacuum on the market, definitely worth the price, and once you’ve tried it you will wonder how you managed without it.
