Product Description

Product Description

Patented WindTunnel technology picks-up more dirt than any other upright, period. As tested per ASTM Intl. test F608, the only recognized industry standard.

Vacuuming becomes a pleasure, not a chore, with this self-propelled bagless upright. A special switch activates the self-propel function, allowing the vacuum to glide with little effort over floors and carpet. The function may be switched off for greater control in tight spaces, such as under tables or chairs. A separate but stored-on-board power hand tool is perfect for cleaning carpeted stairs and upholstery; it simply attaches to the vacuum hose, which stretches to five times its length and gains further reach with the included extension wands (an additional 20-foot hose can be purchased separately). Other tools include a dusting brush for books, lamps, and blinds; a furniture nozzle for upholstered furniture, drapes, clothing, and automobile interiors; and a crevice wand for edges along baseboards, dressers, and between sofa cushions. The height of the cleaner can be adjusted for use on both thick carpet and wood or linoleum floors, and a headlamp illuminates dark areas under furniture and in closets.

Dust and dirt are suctioned up thoroughly with this powerful12-amp vacuum. The patented WindTunnel technology with dual air stream and special ducts ensures that particles aren’t sent back out onto the floor but are captured by three filters. The pre-filter screens larger particles, the HEPA cartridge traps tiny particles of allergens such as dust mites, grass pollen, and ragweed, and the final filter assists in returning clean air to the room. The pre-filter and HEPA cartridge can be removed for periodic cleaning, though the HEPA will need to be replaced every three years or so. To empty the dirt cup, simply remove, shake contents into a trash bin, and press back into place. A one-year warranty covers the vacuum against defects.

I bought this just today, so if something happens adversely in the future, I'll update my review. However, just for today, I am DELIGHTED with this machine. Very powerful suction, and the "bagless" feature allows you to see exactly how dirty your carpet really is! We vacuum regularly (2-3 times weekly) , but this machine picked up almost a full cannister of carpet fluff, plus about 1/4 cup of gritty dirt, just from the living room. The machine I had been using was anotherr Hoover upright, about 4 years old, but half the amperage of the new model. I decided to replace it because I wanted to try a bagless model.
The dirt collection/filter cannister is quite easy to remove and, since it's transparent, it makes it quite easy to see when you need to empty it. I look forward to saving $$$ on vacuum bags!
The "self-propulsion" feature is nice and does make a difference.
The attachments (hand tools) are good, especially the powerbrush. A nice feature is that you don't have to readjust the machine to "hard floor" setting from "carpet" when using the handtools--a convenient change from the other upright vacuums I've owned.
My reason for not giving this model four stars instead of five was in the relative awkwardness of using the handtools with this upright--but that is probably going to be true with any upright. Hoover offers the option of purchasing an extension to the hose, so I might try that.

I just got the Hoover windtunnel self propelled bagless upright and absolutely love it. I was going to get the hoover upright that wasn't self propelled, however, this one was on sale and the same price. I am so happy I did. I am no weakling, but the self propelled feature is wonderful to use. It doesn't move by itself, but assists as you gently guide it along. I never thought I would need or like self propelled but now I'm hooked.
We have 3 cats in our household so I clean several times a week. I filled the canister with cat "fuzz" just from the family room. I never realized just how poorly my old vacuum cleaned, or else this one cleans better than imaginable. The bagless feature is great, not only is it easy to remove and dump but I like the dial that cleans the hepa filter. You just turn the dial and dump the dust that is brushed off the filter, and there was a lot of dust! I never had a bagless vacuum before, but when I dumped the canister, I saw that I had vacuumed up some change and the back of an earing. If I had used a bagged model they would have been thrown away.
The hand held tools are so easy to use. Just put the hoover in the upright position and the suction goes to the hose. Everything is so easy and straight forward even my husband could use it without ever looking at the manual first. I don't think I will ever enjoy vacuuming, but now I don't consider it a chore.

I purchased this vacuum after my old Fantom one bit the dust (no pun intended). The Hoover vacuum has some really nice features that I looked for when researching which vacuum to buy. Some new features I liked was I didn't need to unravel the entire cord from the vacuum in order to get to use the on-board attachments (big plus), the canister to pulls out VERY easily to empty the dirt and loads back in VERY easily (unlike my old vacuum that I had to play with the cansiter for 5 minutes until it clicked into place). This Hoover vacuum also has the rotating brush attachment which is very nice for my staircase.The only things I would change if I could would have to be the weight of the vacuum (very heavy to lift up & down the stairs). I would also like to see the dirt empty out from the canister easier. There are too many little crevises for the dirt to attach to & it ends up not falling out properly so I have to get my hands dirt to empty it properly. Other than those two things, I am very happy with my purchase and highly recommend this model to anyone wanting a very good quality vacuum. Also, a top magazine company rated this vacuum excellent which is why I seeked out this model.

Purchased this vacuum and used it after I had already vacuumed with my current machine. I completely filled the canister on the first use. What a great machine!!!

I have had this vaccum for 3 months now and it sucks down to the concrete foundation! just kidding<br />
<br />
Seriously, I bought several vacuums, eureka, dirt devil vision, hoover savvy and this one. I kept them for a week and saved the receipts intending to keep the best one. This one happened to be the most expensive and the best. Far and above better than the eureka and dirt devil. <br />
<br />
It has much more suction than the other brands as evidenced by the quantity of debris in the dust recepticle. I cannot understand the reviewers who complain about the quantity of dust and debris, it seems to me that would be what the vacuum is intended to do. I have a little long-haired dog and a kitty but you'd never know it as this vacuum sucks up any tell-tale signs of them.<br />
<br />
I'm a neat-freak and appreciate the tools that are easy to use. <br />
<br />
If I had to complain about something it would just be that I think for the price they should include the long-reach extension hose instead of having it as an option. Also some type of attachment to get under low furniture would be a good thing. <br />
<br />
This vacuum is rated best by a leading independent, non-profit testing company for a reason, and the reason is that it simply is the best one made. <br />
<br />
I have researched extensively before I decided on the ones to put to the test myself, didn't include the dyson models because their reviews in england are no so good. Dyson has been used for many years in europe before it's recent introduction into the US.
