The smallest member of Numatic’s increasingly popular Henry Hoover family of vacuum cleaners, don’t let the size of the James Hoover fool you—this product still has more than enough cleaning power and sucking strength to tackle even deep cleaning tasks. James comes in yellow and obviously still features the same smiling face that has made Numatic International’s Henry vacuum cleaners a household name, just in a more compact, lighter package.
Save Time and Energy with James Hoover
This small, bagged cylinder vacuum cleaner features an 800 watt motor, as compared to the standard 1200 watt motor available on all of the other models in the range. However, it also makes use of Numatic’s popular Autosave technology. When you turn the vacuum on, it automatically starts in economy power-save mode, which only uses nearly half of the energy (500 watts) and produces much less noise. Still, for those deeper or tougher jobs, all you have to do is press a button and James will power up to full strength. It’simple to tell which mode you’re in, as the light will be green in economy mode and change to red when you crank the power up to high. The power-save mode ensures that this model can last for years and years, while still having the necessary strength to take on those tougher cleaning jobs when required.
The other major difference between James and the other models, and really the only negative about this particular product, is the fact that the cord on this model isn’t retractable like it is on the others. Still, the unique carrying caddy top on the James Hoover allows you to easily wrap the cord up for compact storage, while also doubling as a place to keep all of your tools and accessories within easy reach. In addition, the cable is also easily replaceable should it ever become damaged.
