About this deal

The action of agitating the tool against the carpet shifts a fair bit of debris – but again, you need some arm strength to do it. It has a 25 minute run time so it’s great whether you’re tidying a little mess or cleaning the whole house.

The tool complement is complete with an extension tube and a basic, but again very serviceable, crevice tool. Richard has more than 20 years experience as a technology journalist, writing and editing on a vast number of publications. Lifting it up to clean anything above the floor, or even moving from room to room, does require quite a feat of wrist strength. Smart charging also means that you can leave it on charge permanently to ensure it’s always ready for cleaning duties.With the floor-head attached directly to the body, it is possible to leap up the stairs gazelle-like without fear of coming a cropper on a trailing cable. If you have the wrist strength and energy to manoeuvre the Hoover Freedom, it’s actually quite handy for stairs. In either hand, the one thing we can guarantee after 20+ minutes of cleaning is wrist-ache and a few areas of soreness where plastic has been digging into your hand. Clean all over your home with the freedom of portability and the power of cyclonic cleaning thanks to the Freedom 2in1 Cordless Stick from Hoover. Freedom cleans your floors beautifully thanks to its rotating brush bar, but it can also be used as a handheld vacuum in your car, on your stairs or on just about any other surface in the home.

Hearst UK is the trading name of the National Magazine Company Ltd, 30 Panton Street, Leicester Square, London, SW1Y 4AJ. A soft and good-sized dusting brush that clips to this, and looks suitable for battling high-rise cobwebs. There was a fair-sized band close to the skirting that remained untouched, and the cleaner didn’t do a great job of picking up the heavier granules of carpet freshening powder. The pistol grip at the rear of the cleaner with motor, battery and bin in front give the Freedom a very front-heavy design. The latter will take a little DIY to install, but holds the cleaner with extension tube and floor-head attached, plus a tool each side.The Hoover Freedom Pets certainly lives up to its name with excellent pet hair pick-up when using the main floor head, as well as when using the mini turbo nozzle.

Getting those high cobwebs with the extension tube and tool attached is definitely a two-handed operation. A continuous power mode provides an extra boost for larger vacuuming tasks with no risk of aching fingers from holding the trigger. Its cleaning power on carpets and hard floors is equally limited, however, and its disappointing build quality and poor ergonomics make it an ongoing challenge to use. We love that it can be used as an upright stick as well as a handheld unit and there are plenty of useful attachments that make it even more versatile, such as the 2-in-1 nozzle that is hinged to help you get into awkward areas. In addition a handheld pole provides an extra-long reach for ceilings corners so you don't miss a spot.A crevice tool is included to tackle all sorts of jobs, such as vacuuming dust up from skirting boards. Although this happened less frequently with the Hoover than on the Vax, it was often enough to suggest that this cleaner is far from pet-friendly. The main cleaner is almost identical to the woeful Vax SlimVac we tested in December, so the Freedom suffers similar issues with handling, pet hairs and low-quality build. It’s a lithium battery pack, so putting it on charge even if it’s only half depleted won’t affect the long-term performance of the battery. This stick vacuum offers convenient cordless cleaning throughout your home, with powerful 22v lithium performance.
