Hoover Blaze SP81BL03001 Review – Negatives Outweigh Positives



The Hoover Blaze SP81BL03001 is a compact bagless cylinder vacuum cleaner that is targeted for smaller spaces and starter homes. It is also available in a rather easy-to-access price point. It contains an 850-watt motor, and it has a good-sized 1.7-liter dust bin. It also has neat accessories in the standard packaging such as an additional smatter Pets Turbo Brush head. It is also quite light and easy to tow around due to the large diameters wheels as well as the single castor underneath the unit. There’s also the flip-up carry handle which makes stair climbing a breeze. While it may all sound well and good, it does have its own set of negative aspects, which may even push the positives over the cliff.

The Hoover Blaze SP81BL03001 Has a Teeny-Tiny Crevice Tool

While there are vacuum cleaners that can destroy bank accounts, the Hoover Blaze SP81BL03001 comes in with a pleasing price tag. If you’re on a tight budget, then this particular vacuum cleaner might definitely catch your fancy.

It has telescopic metal tubes which are a nice touch, plus it does give the device an overall solid feel, albeit the hose and handle do feel a bit on the lighter side. Also, while they are made of metal, they do feel plasticky in comparison to its rivals.

For its handle and tools, they all fit together with a simple push-fit. Also, there is a suction release slider on the handle that is quite handy for when you accidentally vacuumed something by mistake, like your cat. There’s also an automatic cable rewind, which is a nice touch, albeit the cable is awfully short as it is just over 4-meters in length.

When you turn on the SP81BL03001, you would immediately know that it is working because of the loud noise it makes. In fact, your friend from down the block would even know that you’re doing your Saturday cleaning because that’s how loud this vacuum cleaner is. People in your household would have to shout at each other just to communicate properly when this thing is turned on.

The noise of the motor on the Hoover Blaze SP81BL03001 does mean a pretty good vacuum-action. In terms of sucking prowess alone, this sure can suck, and that’s a positive note. However, since there is no way to reduce the power of the carpet head, it will suck down onto a short-pile carpet like a limpet. This gives you a ton of effort just to push it back-and-forth. Hence, for a small package, good suction power, and a relatively good price point, vacuuming with it brings in a lot more effort than what your traditional vacuum cleaner might give you.
