About this deal

After ridding our stairs and landing of enough hair to produce a human-sized wig, there was no ick-inducing unclogging required. Suction power is only one of a suite of factors that make a decent vacuum cleaner, so I also tested it with our usual barrage of cleaning tasks. With its larger capacity and extra accessories, it’s much better suited to larger homes and more demanding jobs. This test is particularly important for serious allergy sufferers who want to remove all of the fine dust and allergens they can from their home.

The dust bin element with the prism to catch hair was especially similar, and one of my favourite features in the Stratos, so I was excited to see how this fared. It's the most important thing when it comes to any vacuum: just how good it is at picking up all of the debris and dust around your home. Also in the box is a motorised suction head with anti-twist brush and front lights, wand, two-in-one dusting/upholstery tool, crevice tool, cleaning tool (small brush with hook), wall mount with nails, and charger. This vacuum is twice as powerful as Shark’s best-selling cordless vacuum, in fact, its efficient power management and powerful brushless motor will clean 120sqm of hard floor and carpet, with no loss of suction, from a single battery pack. This score shows how well the vacuum cleaner sucks up fine Arizona desert sand from deep within the pile of Wilton carpets.Unlike the pared-back Hoover HF500, which came with only a crevice tool, the basic HF9 is better equipped.

However, it has a more powerful suction than both the Vax Blade 5 and the Henry Quick, as you can see in the graph, below. We didn’t really notice it in the upright mode but the handheld mode definitely got our muscles aching. It’s far from unbearable, and emanates more of a hum rather than anything remotely industrial, but can still become a little annoying.

Its upstanding form helped a lot when storing the otherwise large device easily in a corner of my small flat instead of having to prop it up in a cupboard. HF9 delivers optimised runtime of 30 minutes* - long enough to clean your entire home, with no drop in performance (according to EN 60312-1 clause 5. Still, with 65% collected in a single pass, I was left with no doubt that it was capable of capturing the remainder without having to make too many more passes.

The HF9’s removable battery pack can be charged on or off the vacuum and can reach 100% charged in just 3.

The HF9 isn’t Hoover’s first foray into the cordless vacuum cleaning market but it does appear to be its most sturdy and powerful yet.
