This model of Hoover features a chiropractor-designed harness and it collects dust and debris in the canister which you wear like a backpack. This allows for obstruction-free cleaning. So, it gives you an easy and comfortable way of keeping your house clean.
At just 9.2 pounds, the C2401 is light and has an ergonomic harness which allows you to carry almost 95% of the load without much effort. The vacuum’s dust collection bag can hold up to 6.4 quarts of dust. The dust collection bag has a clear dome lid. This allows you to check the bag regularly so that you know when it is time to empty it.
The lid with the hose attachment can be rotated left or right. This means that the vacuum is suitable for left-handed and right-handed users. The C2401 has a shake-out cloth liner which can be used to collect the dust and dirt. For those who prefer removable bags, you can choose to use disposable paper bag inserts.
The 48 foot power cord is very long so you are able to connect the vacuum to one outlet and complete a lot of area before you change power outlets. The 1 ½ inch attachment kit includes the following:
With a variety of tools, the Hoover C2401 efficiently cleans residential as well as commercial areas. It also comes with a wheeled floor tool which you can use with an optional turbo brush tool.
This Hoover vac is easy to carry around they are very quiet. With most of the other vacuums you may find it pretty daunting to keep a conversation going, but this one gives you no troubles when it is operating. If you live in a house which has a lot of furniture and less space to manoeuvre, this vacuum can be a great choice.
It has a strong suction and it is very convenient to use because it does not involve the difficulties of pushing an upright or manoeuvring a canister. While there is no doubt that the vacuum is light in weight, we found that you may find it a little difficult to use for extended periods of time because of the strain it may cause on your back.
If you are not used to a backpack model, it may take time for you to get habituated to using it. It may also get fairly hot when used for long periods of time. While we find the liner cloth is good for trapping dust and debris, it may get a little messy when you try to empty it.
It works extremely well on bare floors and low pile carpets. Therefore, the high pile carpets are not suited for this vacuum. Sometime, it may be a little difficult to lock the adjustments in place and you may have to try it a couple of times to get it right.
The 8.5 amp motor provides enough power for a good amount of cleaning. The ability of the hose to swivel around for added convenience to those who would like to switch hands while using the vac.
This vacuum is great for people who may find it difficult to push around uprights or canisters. The ability to move around freely while carrying the vac as a back pack is easy and comfortable as well. It comes with a number of attachments for various degrees of cleaning. You can also cover different types of fabrics. The dust canister may be a little small for you depending on the size of your house. This means you may end up emptying the dust cup after each use. The Hoover C2401 Backpack Vacuum Review is aimed at covering the strong and weak points of the vac so that you can decide if it will be suitable for you.
