Hoover WindTunnel T-Series Rewind Review
Best Features and Quick Overview
The Hoover WindTunnel T-Series Pet Rewind Plus Upright Vacuum was definitely built with convenience in mind. It folds up easily, so storage will never be an issue. It comes with 27 feet worth of cord, letting you plug it in one place and then clean all over. Plus, once you’re done, the cord quickly winds up automatically.
Another handy feature is that it lets you know when its rinsable filter needs cleaning. It also features carbon and HEAP filters.

How Does The WindTunnel Perform on Hardwoods or Carpet?
With the WindTunnel T-Series Pet Rewind Plus Upright Vacuum, you won’t experience any issues transferring from carpets to hard floors. It has the option of shutting off the brush roller and turning it to hard floors, so you won’t miss a second going from one to the other.
Carpet rugs aren’t an issue either, for the same reason. However, if your rug features small tassels, the WindTunnel T-Series Pet Rewind Plus Upright Vacuum will definitely try sucking them up and long ones can get tangled inside the head. Fortunately, it doesn’t prove difficult unwinding it, but it’s still something to keep in mind.
This vacuum will have no problem with pet hair. But you’ll need to get out the specific extension made for it. Fortunately, the applicable wand has a 12 inch extension, so you can reach every nook and cranny your pet has gotten to.
Hoover WindTunnel Bag System
The WindTunnel T-Series Pet Rewind Plus Upright Vacuum is a bagless device. It relies on windtunnel technology to pull up dirt, debris and dust into its inner chamber. So it functions just as well as a traditional vacuum, minus the cumbersome process of emptying the bag.
This machine comes with three different filter functions. You have the normal vacuum filter, then a carbon filter and a HEPA filter. So you’re getting your carpet clean and the rest of your home at the same time. Best of all, you get an alert when the filters need to be checked or cleaned. Having the main filter washable makes a huge difference.
Emptying the vacuum just requires you to pop the canister out and dump it. However, you might want to do this more regularly than normal. Dirt can easily pile up toward the top, meaning when you pop the canister, it gets everywhere. That pretty much defeats the purpose of having a bagless system. But if you keep an eye on it, this shouldn’t be a problem.
Amps = Power and Suction
This machine has 12 amps working hard inside it. That, combined with how flush the WindTunnel T-Series Pet Rewind Plus Upright Vacuum can sit to the floor provides excellent suction power. The way it effortlessly handles pet hair is probably the single best example of this.
What About Attachments
Hoover supplied this machine with plenty of rubber blades and rubber brushes to give you all the options you need to get your carpets and hard floors as clean as possible.
Easily the best one is the pet hair extension. It leverages the suction provided by the 12 amp engine, but gives you 12 inches extra to reach so you can get wherever the hair is. Thanks to the suction, it grabs everything without becoming tangled in the process.
What We Like Best About The Hoover WindTunnel T-Series
There is a lot to like about the WindTunnel T-Series Pet Rewind Plus Upright Vacuum. One of the best parts about it, though, is its price. The Dyson DC41 Animal Upright is great but it is not even in the same price range as the WindTunenl. Given the fact that it’s bagless and uses a cyclonic suction system, this vacuum could probably command a lot more than it’s selling for. It’s also nice how easily stored away this powerful machine is.
What It Could Do Better
It’s definitely an unfortunate drawback that the inner container isn’t always easy to cleanly pop and empty. The WindTunnel T-Series Pet Rewind Plus Upright Vacuum is otherwise such a great machine that to have that one issue seems almost amateurish—an unsightly blemish on an otherwise great device.
Hoover WindTunnel T-Series Rewind Review Summary
If you’re in the market for a vacuum, you can walk away with a huge steal with this one. It comes with a number of great attachments that add to an already competent machine. Best of all, it’s priced to sell.
