I find it annoying when it dawns on me that although I have spent on a vacuum, I will still have to spend on replacement filters and bags after a period of use. If you think of it, over the lifetime of your vacuum, you may be spending the same amount of money you spent to purchase the vacuum, on purchasing replacements. Well with the Hoover L2310 GUV ProGrade Garage Wall Mounted Vacuum, that should not be a concern since it comes with a lifetime self-cleaning filter which will last the entire lifespan of the vacuum. There are a number of other features that make this vacuum a good choice.
Who is it made for?
This is a typical garage vacuum, with a wall mount and long hose so it would be suited for the car owner with a garage and like most garage vacuums, it can also serve as a workshop vacuum. Personally, I use the garage as a workshop as well so it is pretty much the same thing.
Features of the Hoover L2310 GUV ProGrade Garage Wall Mounted Vacuum
Lifetime self-cleaning filter
The filter in this vacuum is designed to last the entire lifespan of the vacuum. The entire vacuum actually is intended to be durable so you should not have to worry about replacements and since it is self-cleaning, it will last longer because many times I realize I may forget to clean the filter and that may get it clogged, but with a self-cleaning filter the risk of clogging is down to a minimum as it ensures a continuous flow. There is also no need for replacement bags which saves you an added expense.
The Hoover L2310 is intended to be used mounted on the wall, it comes with an easy to install wall bracket and it is not just the canister that hangs on the wall, the accessory tools have a pouch that can also be hanged on the wall together with the hose. This design ensures a clutter free garage and the canister takes up less floor space. I also like the fact that I would not have to drag the unit around as I vacuum.
The hose on this vacuum is 30 feet long, this is sufficient length to ensure that you can vacuum all corners of the garage as well as all around and inside the car. When you add the extension wands you get even more reach so if you would like to vacuum cobwebs on the ceiling, it would be easier even without a ladder or standing on a stool which you could fall off. You probably should also know that even if you walked over or drove over the hose, it will not be damaged.
The vacuum comes with a number of accessory tools which include a dusting brush, floor nozzles, upholstery nozzle, crevice tools and extension wands. These tools give you the ability to clean different surfaces, for example when cleaning the car you will need the upholstery nozzles to clean the chairs, the brush to clean the dashboard and crevice tool for crevices and tight spots. This versatility helps you do more with a single vacuum as opposed to having to buy more tools to handle different jobs.
This vacuum has a 10 amp motor that produces powerful suction. There is probably no job in the garage that may be too big for the suction it provides. You can use it for aggressive suction to rid your floor mats of dirt or in the workshop to deal with sawdust and wood shavings. If you are worried that a powerful vacuum will translate into noisy operation, don’t be, this GUV is actually quieter than so many others.

Durability seems to be the strong point of this GUV Hoover so if you are looking for a one-off spending over a long period, then you could consider this instead of vacuums that need replacement filters and collection bags. With the wall mount feature, you will also save floor space as well as avoid clutter.
