A Stick Vac for All Surfaces!
The Hoover Linx Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner performs like a pro on hard floors. Whether it’s hardwood, tile or anything else, so long as you switch the bristles off, it’s no issue for this Hoover vacuum to clean up whatever is currently on them.
When it’s time to clean your carpets and rugs, this machine is still up to the challenge. Again, all it takes is a single push of your finger and the bristles come into play to help grab onto all the debris that’s littered across your floor. This feature is also great if you have plush carpeting. Other vacuums might struggle to get through those thick strands, but the Hoover Linx Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner won’t miss a beat.
Its dual hard floor and carpet/rug mode make the machine ideal for cleaning up after pets. There’s simply no where the hair can go that this Hoover can’t find it. In fact, its base was made with a low profile specifically so it could get under chair, sofas and loveseats and fetch any hair or other debris that might be hiding from you down there. Obviously its bristle technology also goes a long way in grabbing pet hair.
The Bag System
The Hoover Linx Cordless is bagless. Instead you get a prominently featured container running alongside the back of it. Being clear, you’ll always know how much material is inside and, thus, when you should empty it. Households can save a lot of money on bags with this machine.
This vacuum comes with a filter that’s three inches around and an inch-and-a-half thick. Instead of some flimsy paper tents, this vacuum’s filter is foam made of tiny cell designed to trap every fine particle that comes across it. The other great thing about this filter is that you can simply pop it out and wash it clean whenever it’s gotten too dirty. Hoover does recommend that you allow it to dry for 24 hours after you wash it though.
You won’t have an issue with emptying this machine. It’s nice that the container is clear, too, so you have an idea for when it needs to be done. But unlike other, similar vacuums, this one doesn’t spill its contents everywhere when you discharge the container.
18 Volts of Dirt Sucking Power
You get 18 volts worth of power with the Hoover Linx Cordless Stick Vac by way of a lithium ion battery. Many people like the fact that this machine is energy star compliant. If you need more power for bigger jobs then you might consider reading our Hoover WindTunnel T-Series Rewind review.
Don’t Get Attached
Unfortunately, this machine doesn’t come with any attachments. It’s very specific purpose is cleaning floors and not much else.
What We Like Best About Hoover Linx Cordless
It’s an extremely good stick vacuum cleaner. Compared to other stick cleaners, this one might be the best(see the best vacuum cleaner list), simply because you can take it onto carpets too and see results. Best of all, you just hit a witch and the bristles either activate or deactivate instead of taking some long, convoluted process toward altering it.
Hoover Linx Cons
Sadly, there are a lot of areas where the Hoover Linx Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner left important options on the table. It’s also pretty expensive considering how many competitors it has at less than half the price and how many traditional vacuums are only marginally more expensive.
The battery life is a big drawback on this machine. It’s a lithium battery and energy star approved, yet it only runs for 10 minutes. So get your cleaning done immediately. Some people might even say it was worth having a cord at that point. Plus, if you want to buy another battery so you can at least vacuum for 20 minutes at a time, it will cost you $70.
Wrapping up the Hoover Linx Cordless Stick Vacuum Review
There are a lot of positives about the Hoover Linx Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner, but maybe not enough to justify the price. Still, if you have a lot of pet hair on your hard floor and carpets, this might be a good bet. VacuumRank.com has many more Hoover Vacuum Cleaner reviews and highly researched reviews.
