Hoover REACT is the latest vacuum cleaner line from Hoover brand in 2017 and there models share a lot of similarities with Dyson vacuum unit. Comparing between Hoover REACT and Dyson vacuum cleaner will be an interesting task to do.

To make it simple, let’s take the Hoover REACT upright vacuum (Hoover REACT Professional Pet Plus Bagless Upright Vacuum UH73220PC) and compare with Dyson Dyson Ball Animal 2 Upright Vacuum to see their pros and cons.

Similarities between Hoover REACT vs Dyson

Strong suction power

Dyson Animal has a 270aW motor and Hoover REACT uses 11 amps motor. Although 2 units use different measurement parameters both are powerful enough for an upright model. (generally, a vacuum cleaner with 170 aw-200aw or 10 amps is sufficient for suction power).

Self-adjusting cleaner head for moving from floor to another

Both models have unique technologies to make it versatile to move from hard floor to carpet, rug without losing suction.

Dyson Animal Ball 2 has an advanced self-adjusting cleaner head that automatically adjusts between carpets and hard floors and Hoover REACT upright has floorsense technology to give equal effects.

HEPA filtration

Hoover uses double filters with sealed allergen system to capture up to 99% of the dust size bigger than 0.5 microns, Dyson has a higher level of capturing up to 99.5% of the dust size bigger than 0.3 microns. Both are effective and good for people with allergies or asthma (Dyson Animal Ball 2 is certified for asthma friendly standard).

Designed for pet owners

Both models are exclusively made for pet owners. Hoover REACT passes it internal standards for Paws and Claws.

Cyclonic technology

Both models use multi-cyclonic air system for continuous suction dust, debris without losing power or getting clogged.

Noise level

Both models have similar noise level that is much quieter than cheap models.


Both models perform very well when testing with dust, fine powder on different surfaces such as floor and carpets. When testing with baking soda powder on the carpet, they both recover the same amount from the floor. However, the filter of Dyson is a bit cleaner than Hoover after vacuuming. (see the video)
