Most people probably hate spending money on having your car detailed and vacuumed. But it needs to be done, so what do you do? Well, you can clean your car at home, but it’s a real pain with a regular house vacuum and many of the so-called “shop vacs” are just as clumsy.
After years of searching, you might finally find the perfect solution like the customers who have tried Hoover WindTunnel 2 5-Gallon Garage Utility Vacuum.
Before I get into my experiences with this amazing utility vacuum though, let’s take a quick look at the product specs.
Features of Hoover Vacuum Cleaner WindTunnel
The Hoover WindTunnel 2 is a 5-gallon utility vacuum that features a powerful yet quiet 10 amp motor. And thanks to the 30-foot crushproof hose, you can take advantage of the powerful suction this vacuum delivers all over your garage, including inside your car, truck or RV.
In addition to the extensive reach, this vacuum also features all-steel construction and a lifetime filter that never needs replacing.
It also comes with a variety of attachments including two extension wands, crevice tool, utility nozzle, dusting brush, and a large 14-inch deluxe wheeled floor nozzle.
Best of all, the entire unit including vacuum, hose, and accessories is compact and wall-mountable (mount included), so that it doesn’t take up valuable space in your garage or shop.
User Experiences with Hoover WindTunnel 2
Some people can get pretty fanatical when it comes to keeping my garage and cars clean, so you’ll need the best tool for the job. Fortunately, the Hoover WindTunnel 2 easily takes care of both of those jobs.
I’ve tried many different garage, shop and utility vacs over the years and this is the only one that I can honestly say lives up to the marketing hype.
Reviewers reported using the Hoover vacuum cleaner on an almost daily basis to keep the garage floor clean of dirt and debris that gets tracked in.
I also use it to give both cars a thorough cleaning every weekend, which is a breeze thanks to the extra-long hose and all of the various attachments. It’s very easy to clean the car vents, console, dashboard, upholstery, seat crevices and trunk.
It even takes care of leaves, seeds and other debris that falls down into the gap between the windshield and the hood. Best of all, you don’t have to feed this thing quarters to keep it running like at the car wash and wrangle with a short, bulky hose.
Pros and Cons!
Let’s have a look at a few pros and cons of this vacuum cleaner.
- Powerful yet very quiet
- Extra-long 30-foot hose
- Wall mountable to save space
- Lifetime filter never needs replacement and is easy to empty/clean
- Tons of attachments for a variety of jobs
- The power cord is a little short so make sure you mount it close to an outlet
- The instructions are a little vague when it comes to attaching the hose and bag but it’s not too difficult to figure out
