Vacuum Highlights

  • Patented WindTunnel Technology features three distinct air tunnels to lift and remove dirt from carpet, preventing dirt from scattering back onto your clean floor.

  • Multi-stage cyclonic filtration system means that the air going thru the filter is cleaner than the air that was pulled into the vacuum so that the filter will stay clean longer, and the vacuum will have no loss of suction when cleaning.

  • Filter made with HEPA media. HEPA media traps 99.97% of dirt, dust, and pollens down to 0.3 microns, for cleaner air than standard or allergen media.

  • Power button, suction control and brush-roll on/off switch located conveniently in handle. Easy foot pedal control adjusts nozzle to accommodate different carpet heights and floor types.

  • Detachable telescopic wand, variety of on-board tools, and Hoover's best six-year warranty.

Hoover S3865 Pros and Cons
MSRP$399 This vacuum is priced about average when compared to other canister vacuums.
Premium Features9 This vacuum cleaner has an average number of premium features when compared to other canister vacuums.
Variable Suction Control Variable suction control allows you to increase power as needed on deep, dirty carpets, or lower the suction when vacuuming delicate rugs and bare floors.
Finger-Tip Controls Some or all of the vacuum controls are conveniently located at the top of the vacuuming wand so you can operate the vacuum without stopping or bending over.
Noise ReductionNo Special noise reduction features have not been incorporated and noise levels are typical of your standard vacuum cleaner.
HEPA Filter True or absolute HEPA filters are best. They can capture 97.99% of particles down to 0.3 microns including dust, pet dander, and allergens.
Absorb OdorsNo Charcoal filters are not common, but if you're a cat or dog owner, they do help absorb odors out of the carpet.
Auto Cord Rewind Auto-rewind is a convenient feature that allows you to rewind the cord with just the press of a button. It saves time and keeps your vacuum neat and organized.
Wand StorageNo Without onboard wand storage it takes a little additional effort to keep the vacuum organized and securely stored when not using it.
Special FeaturesNo Like most vacuums, this vacuum cleaner does not have any special features that are unique to this brand.
Indicator LightsNo Does not have indicator lights to alert you when required maintenance operations need attention such as filter or bag changing.
Edge CleaningNo Without edge cleaners, greater care must be taken to ensure room edges are vacuumed along the baseboard. Crevice tools in particular can help keep the edges dirt-free.
Longer Cord Length Cord length is greater than 25 feet which is adequate for most room sizes in a standard home and reduces the frequency of switching outlets.
Headlight Headlights are optional features, but they are nice for vacuuming in the evening, or trying to see in narrow areas or corners.
Longer Warranty This vacuum is backed by a warranty that is two years or longer. The standard vacuum warranty is only one year and is one of the indicators for design and quality.
Motorized Brush-Roll A motorized brush-roll helps agitate the carpet and loosen dirt so that the vacuum can suction up the debris more effectively.
Turbo Brush Includes a turbo brush attachment that helps remove pet hair, dust, and dirt from furniture, stairways, and window coverings.
Weight (lbs)27 This vacuum cleaner is heavier than average and ranks in the top 8% of canister vacuums.
