Product Description


From the Manufacturer

Hoover brings more than 100 years of powerfully designed, easy-to-use household cleaners to cover your floor to ceiling cleaning.

Hoover Anniversary WindTunnel Self-Propelled Bagged Upright

Ranked it #1 for upright vacuum ratings and reliability by a leading consumer magazine.

Leave the workout for the gym. This self-propelled, upright vacuum uses patented WindTunnel Technology to take a lot of the work out of housework.

Here's what makes this Hoover so remarkable.

1. More clean, less back strain: With WindTunnel Technology on your side, dirt doesn’t stand much of a chance. You’re ready to do a powerful, deep-cleaning battle with it. This self-propelled unit moves on its own both forward and reverse while trapping the dirt and not scattering it back on the floor.

2. Built with convenience in mind: With 31-foot power cord at your side and the power control at your fingertips, it’s time to clean without all of the hassle. Even if you have different carpet styles, the 3-position adjuster can handle them and even bare floors.

3. Got pets? No problem!: The attached deluxe stretch hose and full compliment of on-board tools include a pet-hair tool with rotating brushes remove stubborn pet hair and dirt from upholstery and carpeted stairs.

4. Don’t search for dirt, find it!: The embedded Dirt Finder alerts you to dirt you may not see. Red means there’s dirt lurking. Green means you’ve found it and it’s gone. Mission accomplished! The front headlight also helps guide you on your quest for clean.

5. This bag means business: The filtration systems traps 99.97-percent of dust and pollens down to 0.3 microns in size thanks to its HEPA media bag. No more guessing when the bag is full either thanks to an indicator light. Before the air comes back out of the vacuum, it passes through a fabulous filtration system so you can breathe easy.

Customer Reviews

I really like the self propelled feature, which makes it easy to move around.
L Anderson
Now 18 months after purchasing it it has stopped working but has a 3 year warranty so I'm working to see what Hoover can do for me.
All in all it's a good vacuum, easy to use, does a great job and is reasonably priced.

I purchased this vacuum from Amazon after I had just gotten a Bissell Momentum. I thought I would like the Bissell because it was bagless, but I soon discovered what a mess it would make every time I had to empty the canister. I finally got tired of getting fine particles of dirt all over the place and decided to go back to a bagged vacuum. I chose this vacuum based on the Consumer Reports review. I did about 3 weeks worth of research prior to deciding on this particular model. I also looked at the other two Hoovers (bagged models) recommended by Consumer Reports -- the Tempo Widepath U5140-900 and the cheaper WindTunnel Anniversary U5491-900. I came very close to getting the cheaper WindTunnel when I downloaded the user's manual from Hoover and discovered the placement of the hose relative to the cord hooks. It appears as though the cord has to be wound from a high point on the handle of the vacuum to a low point at the base of the vacuum at a diagonal angle. Additionally, the cord is situated so that it crosses over the hose, which looked like an entanglement problem waiting to happen. And I did recall another reviewer having this same problem and also mentioning the awkward placement of the tools on the back of the vacuum. So, I decided to take a look at the Tempo, which has hundreds of awesome reviews. I almost went with it, except for the fact that it lacked some of the features I wanted, like a bag-full indicator light, edge cleaning, and non-marring wheels. I also discovered that the Tempo appears to be a discontinued model which even Hoover is selling at a discounted price. I didn't want to risk the potential for needing a part that might not be manufactured anymore.Read more ›

While it worked, this vacuum was superb. But on the 21st day, it sounded a little odd and started to have a electric burn smell. I thought the the bag might be clogged, so I switched it out and gave it another go. A few minutes later, the vacuum made a little sizzle, gave up the ghost, and left more stink. It seems other reviewers had the same issue (although I didn't see the smoke).

I'm lucky to have bought it locally and will be exchanging it, tomorrow. Judging from the repeating smoke thing, If you have your heart set on this, you also might want to buy locally. I managed to get it on sale for $186 out the door from a department store.

The greats:

This is a very powerful vacuum and rated #1 with consumer reports, which was the main reason I chose this over it's little brother. I also liked the accessory hose position over lower model as you can use it without undoing all of the cord.

I did not buy this for the self propelled feature, as I'm a guy who has no problem with using a little muscle. But, as it turns out, I was using it every chance I got! It was really surprising how well and smoothly it functioned. As one reviewer said, it feels a little jerky at first, but as soon as you lean to use a gentle touch instead of the normal heavy hand, it does all of the work for you and glides along.

The dirt finder is great. At first I thought it wasn't working. I was vacuuming an area rug and it just wouldn't shut off. I'd leave it in the same place for a minute and it finally would, but then on it came again as soon as I moved it. I then lifted the rug and found a bunch of fine sand under it...the vacuum had been sucking dirt from under the rug!

How can you get excited about an appliance? When it serves the purpose for which it was purchased! This Hoover does that and I purposely waited awhile to write this until we had enough experience with it to recommend it (or not). First, let me say that I read all the Amazon reviews before we purchased this vacuum (from Amazon). One said their's was used when it arrived. Another that the box wasn't wrapped in another box for better protection. Well, let me put your mind at ease on those points. This machine was brand spanking new and the shipping container suffered zero shipping damage. Actually, like most products today, it was cleverly packed and could survive all but the most brutal handling in my opinion.

Now, the truth is, my wife picked this machine to replace a 20 year old Sears Kenmore. The primary reason she picked it was because she really loved the self-propelled feature of the Kenmore. If you check, there just aren't many self-propelled vacuums out there, so there are not many choices. Frankly, I think this is an absolutely essential feature myself, since I do about 1/2 of the vacuuming. Oh, and for the record, this unit uses easily replaceable bags. I just can't imagine a better method.

When the unit arrived, it was in two pieces. The top part of the handle, which includes the switches for power and propulsion mode must be assembled to the main handle (or post). It takes just a couple of minutes to fit the parts together and attach with the four screws provided. I think my wife could have figured it out on her own, but it would have taken some time. Once installed, the unit was ready to go.
