Hoover has put a lot of effort to keep pace with Dyson and Shark in the cordless vacuum industry. Hoover cordless vacuums are now not only affordable, but also have advanced features comparable to Dyson models such as:
- Cleans from floor to ceiling
- Convert into a handvac easily
- Ultra-lightweight, large dust cup
- Powerful suction and long run time
The Blade MAX™ is Hovers’s most powerful cordless vacuum, but with that comes a premium price tag of about $350 the last time we checked (although we did find it on sale at Amazon for less). Is the investment worth it? Absolutely if you need that type of cleaning power.
