WINDTUNNEL 3 High Performance Pet By Hoover!


If you have spent anytime at all here on Peanut Butter and Whine you have no doubt met our fur baby Gracie. A Golden Lab, yeah actually more like 100 pounds of shedding dog hair.  Having terra-cotta tile flooring throughout the house and it REALLY shows the dog hair! I can only imagine how bad the house would be if we had carpet!!

I am beyond thrilled to share with you my review of the new Hoover WINDTUNNEL 3 High Performance PET Vacuum.

Let’s Dig right in!!  The Hoover WINDTUNNEL 3 arrived well packaged with tools nestled snug in Styrofoam. Our vacuum arrived without a ding or scratch. I’m pleased to report that I only found 5 small, wayward pieces of foam after all the unpacking. (Is anyone else irritated when there is tiny balls of Styrofoam stuck to the product, the table, the floor and your person after unpacking products??)

VacuumAssembly was easy! Only one Phillips-head screw was needed to attach the handle everything else just snaps into place.

I truly never thought I would ever say this about a vacuum, but this is a sleek and oh so PRETTY vacuum!!!  Deep red and gleaming silver!

I couldn’t wait to turn this puppy on!! (YES! I know! I was EXCITED to vacuum? I’m scratching my head too!)

Whispering to my new vacuum “Oh dearest Hoover WINDTUNNEL 3,  have I got a challenge for you!!  Let’s see what you can do!!” because no matter how pretty and sleek a vacuum is, it’s the suction that counts.

This vacuum cleans on the first swipe using the exclusive WindTunnel® 3 Technology. What does that mean?? It means the wind tunnel creates 3 channels of suction to lift and remove surface debris and deep down embedded dirt. AND it does!! ONE swipe throughout the house collected a whole lotta dirt!! ONE SWIPE!!

Multi-Cyclonic Technology – Air passes through 13 powerful cyclones to filter dirt and debris from the air path with no loss of suction.

You can easily raise and lower the vacuum for carpet or tile. One click and you are using the hose.

Here is where I should be embarrassed. The Hoover picked up so much dirt, sand and dog hair that you would think we never vacuum or sweep our house! I swear it gets vacuumed twice a week. I swear!!

After the first room I stood back in awe! By the time I vacuumed our 1770 square foot house the hopper was gross and way too full!!  Seriously, can I just blame the dog?!? PLEASE!?!? We are empty nesters! It’s just The Husband, myself and Gracie. The floors just shouldn’t be this bad!!


Some of my favorite perks are the little sensor light that goes from green to red when it’s time to change the filter.

The filter itself is made with HEPA media and odor-absorbing carbon layer. HEPA media traps 99.97% of dirt, dust, and pollens down to 0.3 microns. Not just that but I can RINSE it clean and reuse the same filter!!
The hose clicks in. So it doesn’t accidentally come undone. A simple click on the button releases the hose.
The cord! OH the CORD!! It’s a glorious 40 feet long!! FORTY FOOT cord!! I can vacuum the house without stopping and plugging in elsewhere.

Bottom-Release Cup – Conveniently empty debris with the push of a button, without getting your hands dirty. Can I get a very loud HIP HIP HOORAY here!!

Does this vacuum do what’s advertised? Absolutely!!
Easy to use? Absolutely!!
Easy to go from tile to carpet?  We used the Hoover on our area rugs with great success so another Absolutely!!

    HA! Those little Styrofoam balls getting stuck to everything including me drives me crazy too! I thought I was the only one! LOL! Great review! I can relate all too well to all the pet hair, having two cats. The Windtunnel 3 High-Performance Pet Hoover looks like an awesome vacuum!

    We bought one a few years back and, yes, it was embarrassing, lol. Mom ran the attachment over the couch & the stuff that came off it was unbelievable! We were dumbstruck. Was all that on our couch??


    We got a Dyson last year and it was embarrassing! The hopper filled up with cat hair, including hair from one who died 2 years ago and yet, like you, I swear I do vacuum, it’s just the amazing suction!
