About Hurricane Spin Broom

Published on: Mar 1, 2017

Hurricane Spin Broom is a handheld, cordless, lightweight spinning broom that promises to work on every hard floor, regardless whether it’s wood, laminate, or tile.

The manufacturer claims that Hurricane Spin Brush’s triple brush technology rotates with cyclonic action, allowing you to pick up any mess with ease in just one pass. In addition, Hurricane Spin Broom promises to deliver revolutionary swivel action for increased maneuverability and a no-touch, large-capacity bin that empties in seconds. Which should be a breeze, since the broom weighs less than two pounds.

You’re here because, once you sweep (pun intended) all the marketing hype aside, you want to know if Hurricane Spin Broom is the real deal, or if it will be a waste of your money.

Stick with us, and that's exactly what we’ll help you decide—starting with price.

How Much Does Hurricane Spin Broom Cost?

Hurricane Spin Broom is available through three different offers:

  • Main Offer – Includes 1 Hurricane Spin Broom for $19.99 plus $9.99 S&H. The deluxe offer adds 1 LED Light and 2 Extra Brush Heads for an additional $9.99 fee.
  • Special Offer – Includes 2 Hurricane Spin Brooms and 1 Sticky Buddy for $29.98 plus $9.99 S&H. The deluxe offer adds 1 LED Light and 2 Extra Brush Heads for an additional $19.98.
  • Spin Bundle – Includes 1 Hurricane Spin Mop, 1 Hurricane Spin Scrubber, and 1 Hurricane Spin Broom for $99.97, plus free S&H. The deluxe bundle adds 1 Sticky Buddy for an additional $19.98.

According to the manufacturer, Sticky Buddy is a reusable sticky roller that removes hair and lint, works on “virtually any other surface in your home,” and rinses clean when you’re done.

All Hurricane Spin Broom purchases come with a 30-day refund policy, less S&H. to request one, you’ll need to call Bulbhead (a division of Telebrands) customer service at 855-668-1655.

Can you get anything similar for this same price?

Are There Other Products Like Hurricane Spin Broom?

The HighYa team has reviewed more than 800 ASOTV products to date, so here’s a fun fact you might not have known: It’s not uncommon for companies to “share” products.

In other words, we regularly encounter two products from two different companies being sold at the same time, and which are often indistinguishable from one another.

In this instance, you can see that, except for some cosmetic differences, Hurricane Spin Broom appears to be functionally identical to Turbo Tiger Sweeper, as well as the EasyEdge Lightweight Hard Floor Sweeper sold on QVC.

While Turbo Tiger costs about the same as Hurricane Spin Broom, the EasyEdge is currently priced meaningfully lower at $16.44 plus $5.50 S&H.

Now, if you read our article for Turbo Tiger Sweeper, you know that we were left with several important—but answered—questions after our research. Is it the same scenario with Hurricane Spin Broom?

Our Experience With Hurricane Spin Broom Customer Support

We called Telebrands’ customer service number and spoke with a very friendly rep, who let us know that Hurricane Spin Broom is not powered, whether via replaceable or built-in batteries.

Instead, as it moves along the floor, the circular brushes are engaged based on the force of your motion. In our mind, this brings up two important points:

First, keep in mind that (while we didn’t test it firsthand), Hurricane Spin Broom’s lack of a motor could mean that it’s not very powerful. On the QVC website, you can see it in action for yourself—and based on this, we’d be concerned it wouldn’t pick up much more than flat, relatively lightweight items.

Second, while the manual power generated by Hurricane Spin Broom might technically create cyclonic action, it’s important to point out this isn’t the same as the cyclonic suction created by many modern vacuums.

Unfortunately, the service rep didn’t have any information about Hurricane Broom’s handle length or the dustbin size. Again, though, QVC lists the dimensions at 43"H x 12-3/4"W.

Finally, as you can see from the identical competition, as well as for other sweeping devices, Hurricane Spin Broom’s swivel steering technology doesn’t appear quite as “revolutionary” as the manufacturer might’ve made it seem.

Based on all these similar models, is there anything we can glean from their customer reviews?

Is There Customer Feedback For Hurricane Spin Broom’s Competition?

While Hurricane Spin Broom was too new at the time of our research, the EasyEdge Hard Floor Sweeper had 330+ customer reviews on QVC and an average rating of 3.7 stars.

There, most seemed pleased with the sweeper’s ease of use (especially if you have back problems), effectiveness at picking up a variety of items, ability to replace both the broom and the dustpan, and no need to replace batteries. In fact, one customer called it the “best value on QVC.”

On the other hand, common complaints referenced difficulty using, less-than-stellar quality, and that it didn’t perform as well as in the product demo.

Granted, EasyEdge and Hurricane Spin Broom seem to come from different manufacturers, so we’re not attempting to set up any expectations. Instead, we’re only reporting the facts.

What’s the Bottom Line About Hurricane Spin Broom?

Compared to Turbo Tiger, Hurricane Spin Broom’s customer service representative was able to provide us with some additional insight into the product. And what they weren’t able to assist with, we were able to glean from EasyEdge’s listing on QVC.com (including its extensive customer feedback).

Taken together, it seems like we have a fairly clear picture of what you might expect from Hurricane Spin Broom (or, at least as clear as possible without testing it firsthand).

Are you looking for something that’s lightweight, doesn’t have to be charged, and can pick up relatively small items, especially near baseboards? If so, we can’t foresee any reason why Hurricane Spin Broom wouldn’t deliver.

But will it work exactly like the commercial makes it seem? Is there anything about it that’s “revolutionary”? This remains to be seen.

But if it doesn’t meet your expectations, you can always take advantage of Telebrands’ 30-day refund policy. Just remember that you’ll lose any S&H charges, as well as any fees associated with the deluxe offers.

    I read all the reviews after buying this before I used it. I expected total junk. Well, people are spoiled and expect gold. This was $20 at a local store. 20 bucks, can't expect much for that right? Well, don't, because this is cheaply made, and has quite a few issues that need improvement.

    That being said, IT WORKS. You have to apply some downward force for the wheels to get traction because the wheels spin the brushes mechanically. Once you get the feel of it, it does what it says it does. It turns a little awkwardly, may miss something here and there, but it picks up stuff well!

    Don't go off bad reviews. Try it for yourself. Remember it takes an effort to run it. I would recommend it for anyone who isn't short (below 5 ft), shorter people will find applying the downward force awkward. So all in all, not bad, not good. It's a cheap product at a cheap price. You get what you pay for.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Sad

    These are the cheapest made piece of junk. It is one week later and they will not spin. I have cleaned them out a dozen times, and they don't work. Off to the trash can. People don't buy this junk.

    The biggest waste of money ever! It is cheap and flimsy and does not do what the ad would have you believe. Extremely disappointed! I will never buy from this company again. My family refuses to use it, so it will be dumped in our bin next garbage pickup day.

    Does not work as advertised

    I bought the Spin Broom from the local discount store. It is so cheaply made, I should have returned it. The wheels that provide the power to turn the brushes do not get enough traction to spin them without a lot of force downward. There is no way that it picks up with one path. I basically use it for my dustpan, I sweep the floor, then use the spin broom to pick up the pile. Expensive dustpan. I would not recommend this. Save your money.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Joining the USELESS crowd

    • Breaux Bridge, LA,
    • Aug 16, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    I agree with all of the poor reviews and that the ads for this product are misleading if not full out fraud. It does not pick up hardly anything, and the cat hair that it does pick up is just stuck in the brushes which you have to spend time removing.

    Yes, it is very cheaply made and shame on Walmart for carrying this product to begin with. I should have read these reviews before I purchased it.

    Hurricane rubbish

    • Carine, Western Australia,
    • Aug 16, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    Just received the Hurricane Spin Broom. Well, I don't know what sort of proto type they were using in the info commercial I saw that prompted me to buy this, but it definitely wasn't the same one I have received. Mine is cheap plastic, very thin wobbly and doesn't seem to pick anything up. I have a tiled floor and it missed dog hair, human hair, and wouldnt pick up tea leaves that were spilled on the floor.

    It's amazing how these things can be sold legally. The mop is very rattly and extremely light, probably the reason it doesn't pick up anything on the floor. You can't get close to the edge of the floor as the thin brush just rolls up so anything around skirting boards don't get swept up. Consumer Protection should be examing these products on these info commercials!

    Absolute rubbish, now we have to pack the damn thing up and send it back for a refund. Another long wait at the Post Office.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    This sweeper does nothing like on the TV. It will not pick up anything. I will never buy from the TV again. It won't pickup and is very awkward to use. I can return it, but I have to pay for the post.

    Spin Broom no good, QVC Easy Edge great!

    I bought the Easy Edge sweeper from QVC.com a few month back. I absolutely love it. It works great on all my hard floors, including tile.

    I recently bought a Spin Broom with high expectations. It's terrible. Hard to empty, doesn't pick up, a lot more money, colors are ugly and makes a loud sound. I highly recommend the QVC.com sweeper for less money, and I would not buy the Spin Broom. This is my honest opinion.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

      Little confused. If the Easy Edge Sweeper works so well for you, why would you entertain purchasing a similar product from another company?

    The WORST product I've ever purchased!

    • Australia,
    • Jul 28, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    Why are TV shows allowed to advertise this crap product when they know it doesn't work?! I watched the advertisements on TV, and the product "seemed" to pick up everything in its path, including glass, but beware people! The advertisement is as fake as the product. The spin broom doesn't need a catcher because it doesn't CATCH ANYTHING. Take my advice, use a dustpan and broom (it really works). If you buy this useless junk, be prepared to use a lot of colorful language.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Very poor product

    I have recently read the bad reviews, and I agree with all of them as this product does not work. I have Arizona tile flooring, and the product DOES NOT work on it. If it does not pick up dust then how can it pick up a sandwich? The ad states no longer following the dust line, but it is still there, and now I have to get a dust pan to get it.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
