Hoover vs Dyson
Hoover has been around for more than 100 years, having been established in 1908 in Ohio when they brought the first upright vacuum cleaner to the market, invented by James Spangler. Their dominance of the vacuum cleaner market during the early and mid twentieth century led to their brand name "Hoover" becoming synonymous with vacuum cleaners and vacuuming in the UK and Ireland.
Dyson in contrast are a much newer company having been founded by James Dyson in 1993 in the UK. However it didn't take Dyson long to take the market share from Hoover as they took the world by storm with their innovative vacuum cleaner technology.
But how do their latest vacuum cleaner models compare?
Firstly, the Hoover range of vacuum cleaners is much larger than Dyson's. Hoover offer lots of different models including both bagged and bagless models, whereas Dyson have built their brand around bagless cleaners, which is all that they produce. Hoover also produce a number of commercial vacuum cleaners, however Dyson concentrate purely on the domestic market.
