The Duros S3590 is a bagged canister vacuum cleaner of Hoover. It is less expensive that the average competition, but maintains reasonably good performances.
Technical Specifications :
- Power nozzle
- Round swivel brush
- Dusting brush
- Crevice tool
The power nozzle contains a rotating brush. Its cleaning path is 14 inches wide. There are headlights on the front. The brush agitator (and headlights) can be switched on or off from controls on the wand. A pedal on the power nozzle can also be used to switch between the “Rug” and “Hard floor” settings. For hard floors there is suction but no agitator action.
The round swivel brush and dusting brush can be stored on the extension wand, while the crevice tool can be stored inside the canister, in an on-board compartment.
The Duros S3590 doesn’t have any advanced filter, but uses allergen filtration bags (reference 401010SR) which are supposed to improve the level of filtration for small particles. There is also a water washable secondary filter before the motor, and a another water washable filter after the motor and before the exhaust. Both are permanent and shouldn’t need to be replaced.
- The suction is good on rugs and carpets. It is average on hard floors.
- The suction force can be adjusted from a power selector on the the canister.
- The swivel hose can rotate at 360° to increase the maneuverability of the canister.
- An indicator warns you when the dust bag is full.
- Automatic cord retraction.
- The Duros S3590 is noisy.
- The two attachment tools stored on the wand can fall if you bump into something.
- The power cord is too short, which is a problem if you have large rooms.
- No hard floor attachment. Even if the power head can be used on these floors (after turning off the brush agitator), it is heavier and not as practical.
|I needed an inexpensive canister vacuum for my summer house. This little Hoover is a price performer. It is rather loud especially in enclosed areas such as closets, but the noise is evidently a byproduct of it’s power. Tons of suction and a pretty useful beater bar. You can easily switch from beater to straight suction with a touch of the toe. The tools are adequate, though small, again directing more powerful suction. The provided storage of the tools on the handle though does not work. The tools are always falling off and are in the way.|
|This vacuum is great when it is new – powerful suction and great flexibility, switching easily from wood floors, tile and carpet. The tool storage on the handle is not very convenient, but that is not a deal breaker. My mother and I each bought a Duros canister vacuum 2 years ago. Her Duros died after one year, when the hose coupling broke and the repair shop told her not to bother fixing it. Mine is still working decently, (after my awesome husband, who likes to edit my reviews, did a complete tear-down looking for intermittent power loss only to replace the shorting wall plug) but the suction quality has declined appreciably and the noise has increased appreciably. It’s just not as great anymore.|
For the price, it is isn’t a bad purchase, but I would not buy this vacuum again.
Our advice :
The Hoover Duros S3590 is cheap and reasonably efficient. It’s a good choice if you have a limited budget, small rooms, and are aware that the performances and accessories won’t be as good as more expensive vacuum cleaners. Overall, you will probably find a better value for your money somewhere else.
