Hoover Tempo Widepath Bagged Vacuum: U5140-900

15 Sep Posted by in vacuum | 8 comments

This sale caught my eye because the Hoover Tempo has over 1400 four and a half star ratings on Amazon. A sufficient sample size to say the least.  Consumer Reports also provides glowing support for the value the Hoover Tempo Upright Vacuum provides (normally 100$ – on sale for just 68$ + FREE SHIPPING at Amazon).

First impressions upon getting it ready to go was how light it was. That said, the Hoover Tempo did a much better job with pet hair compared to our older Bissell machine. It’s about as loud as the more expensive vacuums but also is similar in power to them too, which is a good thing if you like more dirt / hair being pulled out from the deepest depths of the rug. I would guarantee that most people randomly buying this vacuum are going to underestimate the power they are getting for the price. One neat feature I noticed is that most of the vacuum cleaners start to have a terrible odor that emanates from the air being blown out as you vacuum, but that was not the case with the Hoover Tempo.

The Tempo is serviceable on hard wood floors; certainly not perfect, but most vacuums aren’t, especially the more powerful ones. Only other issue we’ve noticed is that belts will need to be replaced after some time, but you can the Hoover 40201160 WindTunnel Agitator Belts for just $2.50 at Amazon. If you buy a few extra belts with the initial Hoover Tempo purchase, you’ll be saving even more money.

One more good idea before you go – grab the Hoover WindTunnel Type Y Vacuum Bags Microfiltration (with closure). It’s a 9 pack for $8 to keep you set for a while.
