Hoover REACT is a recent vacuum line from Hoover with advanced technologies and Shark Rotator Lift
Away is one of the 10 best-rated vacuum cleaners in 2017.
Both models offers similar cleaning efficiency and optimized for the home with pets.
Let’s compare the Hoover REACT with Shark Rotator model to see the pros and cons of them.
To make it simple we will discuss in detail 2 models:
- Hoover REACT line: Hoover REACT Professional Pet Plus Bagless Upright Vacuum UH73220PC
- Shark Rotator line: Shark Rotator Powered Lift-Away TruePet Upright Vacuum, Bordeaux (NV752)
These two models sharing a lot of similarities especially in the machine construction targeted users (pet owners) and price range.
Similarities and difference Between
Hoover React And Shark Rotator
- Machine Design
Interestingly, both models have very a similar design: an upright vacuum with a detachable canister allowing for more flexibility to clean under furniture and hard to reach areas, they have swivel steering head and use HEPA filter for air filtration (both are bagless designs).
They also have tools for pet hair cleaning, and both are slightly heavy weight machines.
Both machines have high power rating suitable for a standard upright vacuum cleaner, although Hoover React model is a bit higher than Shark Rotator.
When using in realities, both machines give somehow equal suction abilities when testing with powder on the low pile carpets.
- Hoover REACT Professional Pet: 11.5 amps
- Shark Rotator Powered Lift-Away TruePet: 9.2 amps
- Cleaning Performance
When testing these two models, both of them give powerful suction capacity across different surface types. However, when considering about the benefits, each model has its own advantage that we will discuss later on.
- Multi-Floor Cleaning
Hoover REACT is the newest model therefore it has a lot of advanced features. It uses micro-sensors in the vacuum head to detect the surface types and change the brush roll speed to optimize for cleaning.
Besides, it uses multi-cyclonic air system to give no-loss suction (similar to Dyson technology- you can read detail comparison Hoover REACT with Dyson Animal Ball upright vacuum here).
With these new technologies, Hoover REACT is ensured to move from one surface to another type without losing suction which is one of the most compliant about old vacuums.
Shark Rotator on the other hands does not have such feature, meaning that you can’t adjust the suction power by anyway when moving from one floor type to another.
Winner of floor flexibility: Hoover REACT
- Air Filtration Efficiency
Hoover REACT use 2 filter layers: the first one for capture the dust and prevent them to be released back to home. Based on Hoover testing, this model can capture and contain up to 99% of dust ( the size larger than 0.5 microns, ASTMF1977 standard). T
he second layer is carbon HEPA for odor management. Both layers are rinsable and replaceable.
With such filtering technology, Hoover REACT ensures to be friendly to people with allergies ( at the moment this product does not have asthma certification like Dyson unit, but it is safe for users with allergies).
Shark Rotator has similar technologies for air filtering (Anti Allergen Complete Seal Technology + HEPA filter).
Mentioned by the brand, Shark Rotator can trap up to 99.9 % of dust (size between 0.3 -0.5 micron, ASTMF1977 standard).
Moreover, it has 2 foam filters to manage the dust and prevent it coming back to the air.
If you are serious about the released air quality and having asthma, then Shark Rotator gives a better level, otherwise, Hoover REACT is sufficient for users with allergies already.
