Hoover – H-FREE 300 (HF322HM)

Hoover, the founder of the vacuum cleaner, has used its knowledge and experience to create a great value versatile cordless model that combines performance with ease of use.

Adding to its cordless vacuum portfolio, the H-FREE 300 is a multifunctional model that provides effective performance for hard floors and carpets alike, as well as in handheld mode. 


Operating three times quieter than previous models* thanks to reduced friction and quieter vibrations, the H-FREE 300 provides consistent power output through a highly-efficient motor that picks up dust and debris effectively.

Hoover’s R&D department has worked hard to deliver a battery time that will allow consumers to vacuum the whole house before needing to charge. The H-FREE 300 provides up to 40-minutes cleaning time in Auto Mode, whilst the battery pack is removable, meaning that it can be charged anywhere with ease.

With cyclonic separation technology and the additional level of filtration by the pre-motor filter – which separates and traps even the finest particles of dust inside the easy empty 0.7L bin, the H-FREE 300 ensures a high quality of air is re-emitted back into the living environment. 


Specially designed to deliver a deeper home clean, the H-FREE 300 benefits from a brushless Direct Impulse Motor and Dual LED DustLocator Lights to detect hidden dust and clean thoroughly throughout the home. 

The new cordless model also includes Hoover’s renowned H-LAB Flat&Drive Floor Nozzle which allows for 180-degree swivel and 90-degree recline, gliding under sofas or around table legs with ease.

The lightweight vacuum is easy to handle, with intuitive fingertip controls and a power boost button for extra suction when tackling tough cleaning tasks. It can also stand up on its own thanks to ‘Quick Park and Go’ functionality, for times users need to take a quick break to answer the phone or the door.

The savvy model comes with a Safety Protection System where the frontal LED lights on the nozzle will turn red to alert users that maintenance is needed. Cleaning the floorhead is quick to do, as the easy brush release system allows instant access, with no need for a screwdriver or coin to unlock.
