Comparing Hoover Cruise to Dyson DC44 Animal

3.0 out of 5.0 by Js on September 26, 2016
3 and a half stars for the Cruise, really, because money matters.

This review is based on vacuuming hardwood floors with a few scatter rugs. While we still shudder at the price of the Dyson V6, (we bought it refurbished and it was STILL expensive) we prefer it over the Hoover. The Hoover Cruise is less expensive than the Dyson, and is pretty good, but on close inspection we opt for the Dyson. It was fascinating to compare the two devices and see how the Hoover engineers had come in with a... let us call it "homage" to the Dyson concept. They came up with their own solutions and delivered a vacuum with just as much power that cost much less. However...

Comparing the two devices:

Battery: I like the way the Hoover Cruise lets you simply click a button to pull the battery and presumably replace it in the future. This is much tougher with the Dyson, where you have to look on YouTube to figure out how to disassemble, then find the hidden serial #, then search the internet for an aftermarket replacement, which are available.

Noise: Dyson.
While the two are within 2 dB of each other (88-90 at 3” above the handle for the Dyson, 90-92 for the Hoover), the Dyson is subjectively quieter. The Hoover has a high, whiny pitch. However, neither is bad.

Maneuverability: The Dyson is smoother. The Hoover swivels just as much, if not more, but it swivels unexpectedly, when you are trying to go straight, for instance; steering is touchy.

On/Off switch: Hoover.
The Hoover has a lever that can be pushed to hold the on button in the on position. Which is good, because there is a hard edge that hurts the top of my hand when I hold down the on button, so using the lever allows me to move my hand away from that edge.
One has to hold down the on button for the Dyson all the time, but that actually hasn’t ever bothered me.

Dust bin: This one is a tie.
The Dyson has a smaller bin, and the hinge for the “lid” for it is set back from the edge of the opening (sorry, hard to describe), but suffice it to say the issue comes in with fine dust accumulating in the hinge area. I use a toothbrush to brush that area out, which is about 1/4” deep.
The Hoover seems to have a slightly larger dust bin, and its lid and hinge are better designed and have a nicer, firmer snap when closing. However, when popping open the base of the dust bin, the filter doesn’t release cat hair or dust bunnies. One then has to disassemble the entire dust bin in order to pull off the lighter debris. That reattachment is a finicky task.

Powered beater brush: Dyson wins.
The Hoover has an on/off switch, so the beater brush can be turned off on wood floors. It is very easy to remove to clean by simply pulling back on an arrowed section of the base (no instructions needed) and popping the brush out. This is superior to Dyson’s design. The Hoover Cruise beater single brush has soft blue tufts that appear to be spaced just slightly apart, so the tufts may not cover 100% of the floor or rug. But if you’re thinking that you’re protecting your floors, take a look at the close-up photo of the beater brushes to compare, and see the scratches (after just one use!) on the bottom piece of plastic that slides on the floor. I think adhesive-backed felt would be an easy fix that is not even necessary if you are just vacuuming tile. Hoover could fix this easily with a piece of padding.

By contrast, the Dyson designers have gone to much more effort. There are little rollers front and back and padding all around. There are two sets of brushes, one set of black, very soft, slightly longer brushes that are spread quite uniformly (instead of in tufts) across the width of the tube. Then there are some red, very stiff tufts, that would seem to be far more effective at beating a rug or carpet. See the Photo. The stiff tufts would hit the surface of a wood floor, but very lightly. In the 4 months of using the Dyson, we have not yet noticed any wear on the floor. The Dyson beater brush is on all the time. It is slightly less easy to clean, requiring a coin to insert into a slot to rotate, then the brush has to be pulled out of the resulting hole; it takes some time. On the Hoover Cruise, you slide a piece and pull out the brush- easy.

In examining the lower area of the machines, we noticed that the Hoover had, after just one use, accumulated quite a bit of softer, fuzzier debris along its corrugated tubing that is closest to the floor. The Dyson protects that area with some rounded plastic, and did not appear to have any accumulation, after 4-5 months of use.

Weight: a tie.

Suction: Close! The Hoover cleans well but the Dyson sucks harder.

Instructions and Intuitive Operation is a Hoover Win: Hoover Cruise wins by far. Unlike those pretentious and puzzling pictographs Dyson is fond of, there are actual English instructions, and labeled pictures. Also, there are helpful little labels on the vacuum itself.

Accessories: Dyson has a bit of an edge here with an included smaller beater head for stairs but the Hoover is pretty easy to use on stairs with its regular head, so no big deal.

I usually don't factor in cost in a comparison unless the difference is big. Well, it is big. Go with the Hoover Cruise to save money and get good performance. Go with a (refurbished) Dyson to get best performance.
A super-lightweight, versatile vac that picks up as much fine dirt / dander as the Roomba without the high cost ....

5.0 out of 5.0 by D. Fowler on September 16, 2016
A friend recently commented that I practically had one vacuum for every room I had. Well, each room in my house seems to hold a special challenge for me. I do have a mix of hardwood floors, both oak and wide pine, one laminate, ceramic tile, and a couple of oriental rugs. Add to that mix a couple of dogs and plenty of dirt and there you have the challenges. Throw in a mud pit of a dog pen and this old house can be a mess at times.

If you have plush pile rugs and think the Hoover Cruise will do the job, think again and take a pass. I do have all kinds of vacs (the friend wasn’t far off the mark) and will tell you right now that the Cruise has got to be the best cordless vac on the market. I have the Anker and the Monster, both excellent dust ‘n dirt chompers, but the power and the versatility of the Cruise has them beat hands down.

I even have a Roomba 800 series, but have retired him, Liam Neeson (Roomba wants us to name them), after a tumble down the stairs. The reason I even mention the Roomba is because the Hoover has one very interesting quality it has. When I was vacuuming, I noticed that the Cruise was picking up that very fine dander and dust that so plagues me. The allergies kick in big time if I’m not right up on it. Now, I vacuum, but now that I took my fans out of the window, figured a good fall cleaning was in order.

There wasn’t much in the line of “visible” dirt in the room I’d targeted to house the Cruise, but when I vacuumed I was shocked (and pleased) at the amount of fine dust it sucked up. It has that Roomba-like capability of drawing in that very fine dust and dander. For such a lightweight vac, the Cruise has the power of much more expensive vacs. Of course I’m getting ahead of myself, but I was so impressed with how much dust and dander the Cruise pulled and how rapidly I could fill that canister.

Assembly was quite intuitive and I only read the book after I did a thorough vacuuming in the bedrooms, which I need to really keep clean. The Hoover Cruise is a super-lightweight vac that is perfect for seniors or those who can’t push a lot of weight. I have a Miele and an Electrolux Silverado, but both of them are super heavy. And then there’s my Bissell Trilogy, the vac that’s touted as lightweight, but can’t even compare to the Cruise. AND all of these are attached to a cord. The Anker is cordless and I love it, but the Cruise even beats that by a mile.

The Cruise has an easy-to-empty canister and I can remove the whole thing to clean around the filter. I had to take it apart a couple of times because it was picking up so much fine dander. Lot’s of pollen and dust came through those window fans, settling on the entire room. It didn’t help that the road next to use was graded, sending up even more dirt. Another feature I really liked was the fact that it has an On / Off trigger or I could flip a “continuous power latch” for extended vacuuming. I do know my vacs, including Roombas, but of all the cordless ones I’ve tried, the Hoover Cruise is top of the line.


The Hoover Cruise has an onboard Li-on battery pack, a pack that clicked into the body of the back quite easily. Conversely, I was able to pull it back out easily so I could check out the specks. It’s a 21.6V 42.2Wh 2.0Ah battery pack. This brick is replaceable so not all is lost if it dies in a few years. Now, one of my Dirt Devil vacs was discontinued and I have to special order bags. This is one of the nice things about the canister style vacs I do love. No fuss, no muss, no bags.

Charging the vac itself is easy. There’s an AC charger (included) that is plugged into the charger inlet right on the body of the vac. It took no time at all to spot it. I was thinking that I’d prefer direct access to the Li-on brick so I could charge it on the counter, but everything comes apart and it’s not that difficult to charge. The Anker has to be placed in its base, a bit of a pain at times.


The dust bar can be pulled for cleaning with the flip of a switch. If I get threads or hair get hung up in the brush, they can be pulled or clipped. One interesting thing about the Cruise is the fact that everything is very well-designed and quite well thought out, making use almost intuitive. The Roomba’s brush bar needs much more tending to and in comparison I’m finding that the Cruise is much easier to work with.

The cup of the dust collector opens right up over the waste bit. If I want (and I did) I can remove the dirt cup entirely. It has a “Remove Dirt Cup” button that’s easy to spot. When I removed it, the filter was exposed and I could clean it off easily. That filter should be kept clean because with the finer dust and dander it can get quite clogged and the suction will go down.

There’s one additional post-motor filter that should be washed under running water periodically. I’ll be leaving that out to dry overnight because the vac certainly doesn’t need to smell. This particular filter is less fragile than the one in my Anker, but care still should be taken when cleaning any of them. I wiped down everything with a slightly damp microfiber cloth after I was done because the body of the vac was a dust magnet itself.

•► VACUUMING (Upright mode):

Vacuuming with the Hoover Cruise was a snap, but it took me a bit to get used to the swivel head. Now the swivel is a great feature because I can turn it to get under things and maneuver around things like my rocking chair or a desk. I do love the mobility, even more so than I have with the Anker, primarily because it’s lightweight and picks up more dust and dander. I think my house has the corner on fine dirt, just sayin’.

Right above the floor brush is a flex joint that turns readily. As I mentioned, I was able to maneuver it quite well as it has more flex than any of my vacs. It’s not at all stiff and the only thing is getting used to working with it. I was able to vacuum my bedrooms and hallway quite rapidly, especially since I didn’t have to worry about a cord. I really couldn’t believe how quickly the canister filled up with dust, dander, and fibers.

There are no speeds, but rather only one to deal with. The battery doesn’t take long to charge so there’s no need to conserve. I don’t need that power-saving mode and expect that if I need a charge, it won’t take long. The battery pack is quite solid and well-protected. There are plenty of cautionary notes in the user manual, but a little common sense goes a long way.

•► VACUUMING (Handheld mode):

With the Hoover Cruise, I also got a Dusting Brush, a Crevice Tool, and a Pet / Stair Tool. Using the Cruise in a handheld mode was especially easy because it is so incredibly lightweight. For example, I put the Dusting Brush on and was easily able to vac along each ceiling / wall met. I usually use a long, handheld duster, but rather than spread the dust around, it was collected in the canister.

Each tool goes right into the handheld portion readily because each one is marked. They only go one way. There are enough attachments to get a wide variety of jobs done. I was primarily interested in using the Cruise on the floor, but was quite pleased with the versatility. Of course there’s that couch. The Pet / Stair tool has silicone “teeth,” making this tool really effective for pulling up dog hair off the couch.

Once again, I need to impress upon the user that keeping those inner filters clean is a must for good suction. The Cruise is a light-duty vac, but for me it’s a nice, versatile heavy-duty cleaner for that lightweight niggling dust and dander. Anyone with allergies who needs to do battle with it will love this vac.


As I mentioned, I do have several vacs, including a Roomba, but each seems to have a different purpose. The Hoover Cruise has to be the best designed cordless I’ve seen. It’s quite easy to use and actually quite a powerful one with that 22V Lithium Ion battery. I was quite impressed with the amount of fine dirt and dander it picked up. In this regard, it does as well as my Roomba ever did, but with less maintenance.

The lightweight factor was yet another impressive feature. I had no problem holding up the vac with the Reach Wand in place to go along the ceiling edges. If I tried to do that with my Bissell ... well, let’s said I wouldn’t bother. The Cruise has taken the features of many of the best cordless vacs and improved on them. I don’t have a Dyson, so can’t comment on that, but I have enough vacs to say for certain that I’d recommend this one in a second.

Has Dyson Met Its Match?

4.0 out of 5.0 by takingadayoff on September 23, 2016
It's a given that I will only vacuum if I can do it without hauling a heavy, corded vacuum cleaner around. So it's all cordless, lightweight stick vacs for me. I've been through several types and the Dyson Motorhead is the best of all the ones I tried. I love it. However, it does have a few minor drawbacks and it was worthwhile for me to check out this new Hoover Cruise. The Hoover compares favorably although I can't quite call it better than the Dyson, it's as good overall.

It seems to be as effective at picking up dirt and dust and hair, which of course is the main thing. It holds a charge a lot longer than the Dyson -- the Dyson has never lasted more than twenty minutes on one charge at full power, but since I have a small apartment, twenty minutes is usually enough. On the other hand, the Hoover lasts twice that long, so if I get a bee in my bonnet and decide to do the furniture and blinds as well as the carpet, I'm set. Both machines easily convert to a handheld dustbuster and have the usual attachments. The Dyson handle is much more comfortable, even though the Hoover has a handy lock to keep your power switch depressed unlike the Dyson. The design of the handle made my hand tired on the Hoover, no problem with the Dyson. One thing I dislike about the Dyson is that the vents in the motor unit are arranged so that the air comes back at your face, especially if you are using the handheld option. The Hoover blows off to the sides, thank you very much.

Both machines are very light and maneuverable and about the same degree of yuckiness when it comes to emptying the dust basket. Not sure I am ready to toss the Dyson, but this Hoover is a close competitor at a nicer price.
Cheaply made with terrible suction.

1.0 out of 5.0 by Rory Walsh on June 3, 2017
Poorly designed dyson knock off. The suction is very weak. The connection points between the canister and the extension bar is terrible; it wobbles and feels cheap. The connection between the extension bar and the power head is also wobbly. It feels like over time it would fall apart. I was looking forward to something you could just snap into place when you're done, but the wall mount and the power cord are not connected; You have to put the vacuum in the wall mounted dock and then take the power cord and connect it separately.
Okay but could be better

3.0 out of 5.0 by Pat on April 8, 2017
Bad features: Attachment connections are very flimsy, roller brush stops rotating sporadically. After using a couple times & charging, the battery life seemed to be longer. Good features: lever to keep trigger pulled for continuous power, switch to turn brush in head on & off, brush roller easy to remove for cleaning.
I've now tried 3 different brands of these rechargeable stick vacs - Hoover, Dibea & Bissell. Hoover had the best suction & good features, Dibea had the best construction but lacked features & Bissell had nothing good about it.

1.0 out of 5.0 by Lea Norris on June 18, 2017
Just ordered this in Feb of this year and it worked fine but it stop working in April. Did everything that the instructions said to do to keep it clean and when to charge it. I was only using it about once or twice a week since there is only my husband and I in the household. DO NOT ORDER THIS, BECAUSE ITS NOT WORTH IT, YOU THINK FOR $159 IT WOULD LAST LONGER THEN 3 MONTHS. VERY DISSAPPOINTED!!!!
It's great for spot cleaning but not a whole house cleaning

5.0 out of 5.0 by Amazon Customer on February 12, 2017
This unit is light weight but very powerful. It's great for spot cleaning but not a whole house cleaning. Works very well on cars too. Very easy to assemble. This is my 1st cordless unit so I can't compare to anything but my mother in law has the Dyson. She thought that's what it was at first and tried it out. Her first comment was Wow this is way more powerful than mine. She then looked at it and realized it was a Hoover. She was shocked when I told her the price since she paid $400 for hers. The big comment she said was the dust and pet hair clogs hers but did not have any effect on the Hoover. I would buy again.
Hoover Cruise Cordless Sweeper

5.0 out of 5.0 by Dee Dee on January 29, 2017
Love this sweeper. Light weight and doesn't hurt my back like my large Dyson. The Cruise is great on hardwood floor and not too bad on carpet. After using on the carpet for four or five times then I use the Dyson, which I really is heavy. Highly recommend this sweeper.
Fantastic for the price

4.0 out of 5.0 by K. Horton on March 30, 2017
This Hoover Cruise cordless works well. It picks up the dust, dirt, and dog hair on the wood floors. And, after turning on the rotating brush, I can give the area rugs a nice once-over. Plus, the battery life is just great. For the price, this stick vacuum really meets our needs of cleaning in-between deep cleanings.

There are a few issues to be aware of, however. As one reviewer noted, it is a bit like pushing a limp rag around. It is hard to control the path of the sweeper head. It has a mind of its own.

The other thing is that it loses suction after several uses. When that happens, the pick-up deteriorates and the roller will no longer turn. It requires more than just emptying the dust collector and removing hair on the roller to return the unit to good working order.

The good news is that you can tear the unit all the way down and clean all the components outside the motor. Once done, the vacuum works well again - until the next time. The big problem seems to be fine dust collecting on a plastic screen covering the intake.

Dis-assembly is pretty easy, except for removing the dust collector. One side releases easily, but the other side must be carefully giggled to complete the removal. Re-assembly can be a little difficult as well. Specifically, there is a rubber-like gasket that fits over the air intake. It tends to be pushed out of position when putting the pieces back together.

The bottom line is that it works pretty well. I just wish it was a little easier to keep clean.
I'm somewhat disappointed based on so many positive reviews......and it gets worse

1.0 out of 5.0 by Patrick J. Mansfield on February 19, 2017
I'm somewhat disappointed based on so many positive reviews. I'd say it's ok but nothing more. Suction is unimpressive and not even close to my regular vacuum. It won't pick up anything large, like a piece of straw or small stone. It does ok on dust and dirt and hair but just a small bit at a time. It is also fairly flimsy. The connection tolerances are just plain sloppy, so it flexes at the connection joints both at the top and bottom of the extension tube. It is very light weight and the battery holds a charge well.
Update after six months. I don't even both with it anymore. Suction was poor at first and gets worse. Even let a friend use it and she found it just as worthless.
