A vacuum cleaner is something that we all need to use at home but there are always so many different options to choose from that it can be hard to know what to pick or which model is best suited to your needs.
AO recently sent me the Hoover Velocity Evo Reach VE02 Bagless Upright Vacuum Cleaner worth £139, to try out at home. I have previously tried out a Dyson and a Shark at home so I was curious to see how the Hoover brand would compare to these two brands.
To really be able to try the Hoover Velocity Evo Reach VE02 Bagless Upright Vacuum Cleaner I thought it would be a great idea to take to my in-laws when they had the girls over to stay recently. As they have a dog and we don’t, I felt like using the vacuum cleaner in this environment would really put it to the test.
The box contains the following:
- 1xVelocity Evo Bagless Upright Vacuum
- 2-in-1 dusting brush/ crevice nozzle
- Long crevice
The Hoover Velocity Evo Reach VE02 Bagless Upright Vacuum Cleaner
Suitable for both carpets and wood flooring, this vacuum is perfect for all the floorings in your home giving the same performance throughout. The clever Intellicare technology protects your carpets, as the power output of the brush bar is reduced when the vacuum is stationary. The vacuum comes with a handy crevice tool for those hard to reach areas and a turbo tool for removing stubborn dirt and pet hairs. However, if you are in need of thorough carpet cleaning, I recommend you to use a professional cleaning service such as ProLux Carpet Cleaning.
- Bagless cleaning – easy to empty and no bags to buy
- Gives great results on both hard floors and carpets
- Special technology helps to protect carpet fibres
- Comes with a handy tool for corners and crevices
- Turbo Tool removes embedded dirt and pet hair
I was really interested in finding out what Nick’s parents thought of the vacuum when it came to picking up dog hairs. I, of course, gave it a test drive myself when we arrived to get a feel for how it manoeuvred around the home and tackled pet hair on the floor. Then I left it in the capable hands of Nick’s parents to report back me about how it performed over the course of a few weeks. Because you really can’t get a feel for something like this after just one use. You need to know how well it performs on a day to day basis after regular use.
How well did the Hoover Vacuum Perform?
“The vacuum picked up the bits up off the carpet well. It is a little bit noisy when you press the button to use on carpet but it definitely worked better on carpets with the button pressed. It did make Poppy (dog) run away at first, but she then got used to the noise. The vacuum stands up much better by itself without the cable on the back of it. All attachments fitted very well so they stay with the hoover. You can also have the cable fitted on the hook as suggested, to stop you running over it and it is a good long length too”
The Hoover Velocity Evo Reach VE02 Bagless Upright Vacuum Cleaner has some really great features which I liked:
- Great hoover for the carpets
- It is very powerful with a great 12 mt reach
- It comes with a large capacity 1.5L
- Performed well on both carpet and hard flooring
- Very good at picking up the dog hair
- Easy to move room to room
- The attachment suction is good
- Easy to empty
- It comes with a lot of pieces to put together to use extension
With these accessories, you can reach higher areas as well as corners and crevices
But also some which I didn’t like:
- It can be very heavy to push at times
- The vacuum won’t stand upright even if you don’t have the cable hanging on it which is a big issue for us. It just falls to the floor every time. I didn’t like this because it can also be an issue when you store it.
As you can see this vacuum cleaner performs well but it has a couple of things to be aware of which for some can be an issue but for others, it might be overseen by the fact that it performs well and does the job.
Are you looking for a new vacuum cleaner? What do you look for when buying a new vacuum cleaner?
*Disclosure: AO sent us this vacuum cleaner for the purpose of this review. However, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
Thanks for stopping by,
Love you all ❤️

I am very fussy when it comes to vacuum cleaners, I think the fact that this doesn’t stand well if the cable isn’t on correctly would put me off but other than that, it sounds great #kcacols
I know! That was definitely something that we didn’t like, 🙂 x

Looks good, hoovering up pet hairs can be impossible! #KCACOLS
Exactly! 🙂 x

This sounds great I’ll have to check it out. I bought a cordless vacuum around 6 months ago and it’s really not up to scratch. It gets clogged so easily and doesn’t pick up pet hair well. This sounds perfect for us. Thanks for the review. #KCACOLS
You are welcome lovely 🙂 x

looks great!! #kalcols
I’m on the lookout for a new vacuum cleaner, having a Jack Russell means hairs all over the place and the one I have is hard work, so I’ll be definitely looking into this one.
Check it out if the pet feature is your preority for sure! 🙂 x
This looks like it could be pretty nice. I love the pet hair thing. Pet hair can be brutal to get up. Thanks for sharing!! #KCACOLS
Yes the pet function was very good x

I love to vacuum, especially when I am stressed! Our vacuum is very heavy for stairways and such, not to bad on pushing. It would drive me batty if it wouldn’t stand up though! Argh! And, I know bagless is most all new hoovers, however I find them messy as all get out? Do you like a bag or bag-less? #kcacols
Yes that part was definitely annoying! I think I prefer the new bagless hoovers. For me the suction function needs to be strong. This is what I really go for 🙂 x

We have a Dyson, it’s good but bulky. To be honest I don’t use it that often. We have a cleaner that comes every other week and I use the rechargable one during the week #KCACOLS
I have a Dyson too but the battery is not working anymore so it lasts like 5 seconds which is annoying! X
We have a Shark and it’s amazing g but that doesn’t stand up on it’s own either! #kcacols
We have a Shark too. I like that it has lights! Mine does stand on its own.
