Product Description

Keeping The Standard For Clean Set On HIGH™, the Hoover Platinum Collection features six products designed to get floors truly clean – quickly and easily – so you can move on to the other parts of your life.

With the Hoover Platinum Collection Cyclonic Bagless Canister you have a great all-around vacuum for a thorough floor-to-ceiling clean, especially if you have a higher ratio of hard flooring in your home. Designed with a detachable telescopic wand and on-board tools including an Air-Powered Hand Tool for hard to reach areas, and a power nozzle with swivel neck to reach around furniture legs and corners with ease.

Hoover Canister Vacuum
A combination of Hoover's WindTunnel Technology and a multi-cyclonic filtration system results in a platinum clean with no loss of suction
Equipped with Hoover's patented WindTunnel technology and three distinct air tunnels, this bagless canister vacuum cleaner effectively lifts and removes dirt and debris, trapping it inside the cleaner instead of scattered back out on the floor.

The Cyclonic Bagless Canister features a Multi-Stage Cyclonic Filtration System, which cleans the air moving through the filter to ensure no loss of suction, with all the power needed to get floors truly clean. Its fingertip controls offer comfortable access to the power button, suction control, and brush-roll switch.

Turn the rotating brush on when vacuuming low- to high-pile carpets and rugs; flip the switch off for safely cleaning hardwood and other bare-floor surfaces. A foot-petal control adjusts the nozzle to accommodate different carpet heights and floor types.

For above-floor cleaning, the vacuum provides a 7-foot hose, a detachable telescopic wand, and a variety of on-board tools. Use the turbo tool for stairs; the crevice tool for between couch cushions or other tight spots; the dusting brush for bookshelves, vents, and lamp shades; and the upholstery brush for curtains, living-room chairs, couches, and more.

The unit's multi-stage cyclonic filtration system keeps the air that moves through the filter substantially cleaner than the air being pulled into the vacuum, which helps ensure the vacuum doesn't lose suction power when cleaning. Plus, its filter comes with HEPA media, which effectively traps 99.97-percent of dirt, dust, and pollens down to 0.3 microns in size.

Other highlights include a 14-inch-wide nozzle, swivel casters for smooth maneuverability, a headlight, an easy-empty dirt cup (no bags to buy), a 25-foot power cord, and automatic cord rewind at the push of a button. The 12 amp canister vacuum cleaner measures approximately 25-3/5 by 14 by 17 inches and carries a five-year limited warranty.

To start, I should mention that I'm hard on vacuums. We have different flooring types, multiple levels in the house, animals, long hair and children, as well as living in a never ending construction zone in the center of allergy alley. Thus, I need a fairly heavy performing vacuum that manages flooring transitions as well as being able to do stairs and furniture.

If that weren't asking a lot already, I need it to be heavy enough to be multifiltered and high powered, but light enough that I can tote it up the stairs.

I've had the Platinum Hoover Canister for a 3 months now, and I've been pleased with the performance. This one replaced a previous Windtunnel, and while I miss a few things from the old version (like different power settings), all in all, the new version outperforms the older version.

Suction is fantastic. Transitioning from area rugs to hardwoods and then to carpet is easy. Super long power cord lets you do multiple areas without having to unplug and replug. Filters, filters, filters. Allergies in the house have become noticeably better with this unit. It's a lot more quiet that previous versions. Powerhead is fantastic for getting critter hair off the furniture and drapes. Reset button on the main head is a wonderful thing, if like me, you have ninja shoelaces in unlikely places; such as those cleverly hidden by small children who have kicked their shoes under the couch. Almost no dust escapes the vacuum while it is running, and while it is all in one unit...but that leads us to the cons...

Emptying this vacuum is not for the wheezy. You will get dirty, you will have a cloud of dust, you will curse yourself and the Hoover engineers if you make the mistake of emptying it in the house. Trust me on this one.

This was purchased because of the positive reviews & Consumer Report's recommendation.

I was amazed at the performance of this product. I wanted to get a higher priced vac & was glad I first. It sucked up animal hair & stray cat litter with great efficiency on both carpet & wood floors.

It was also the quietest vac I've ever fact, on the 8th attempt to use it, there was no noise AT ALL!

After vacuuming a 2 bedroom house 7 times, it wouldn't start. The power got to the machine but pushing the start button did nothing.

Since I live in a rural town between 2 major cities to the north & south, I'd have to drive at least 45 miles to get this repaired. So I contacted "Hoover's Exclusive Platinum Collection (TM) Member Services Line" ....impressive,eh?...I hope the folks working there get paid by their title, because all they do (& can do) is punch in your ZIP & tell u the location of the service center.

They told me that the nearest service was 32 miles away in Tehachapi, CA. I replied, "That is almost 100 miles & a 2 hour drive away" Their response? "Well, that's what it says on our computer" So much for "Hoover's Exclusive Platinum Collection (TM) Member Services"... it's just a call-center sweat shop.

There is no repair available in Bakersfield or Santa Clarita. It took a drive of 75 miles & 1hr 45min to Los Angeles to get service.

The repair center told me that Hoover is just a name & no longer a manufacturer. They also stated Hoovers are poorly made. The hose needs replacing on my vac. I asked how a hose can go bad after a couple of hours of use..."Poor quality" was their answer. It takes "weeks" for them to get authorization to do a warranty repair & to get parts.

I received this Vacuum about a month ago. This is the first canister vacuum I have ever owned. The suction works great on carpet and my hard wood floor as well. It does not kick dust and debri back out like my old vacuum did. It fits nicely under my couches, beds, and dining room table. I love that you can adjust the level of suction so you can use it on different throw rugs in the house. The dirt trap needs to be emptied often. I carry a plastic bag with me and empty when needed. It helps keep dust down. The hose detaches easily at the top near handle or at the bottom at the touch of a button with your foot. It is not loud either. Overall I am very happy with this vacuum. I am glad I purchased after reading tons of other reviews on other vacuums.

If I could give this vacuum 0 Stars, that's really what I would have given it!! All I can say is Buyer Beware!

I bought this vacuum (which was expensive!!) thinking I was going to get a quality vacuum. It comes with a 6-year manufacturer warranty, so I thought that there wouldn't be any issues for at least 6-years, because that seems to be how warranties are, right? WRONG!!! I had this vacuum for 1 day, and the power on/off button & powerhead on/off button failed. For some reason, the buttons wouldn't turn off at the handset -- they just stayed lit up. And no, I did not abuse this machine in any way. I emptied the cannister several times during vacuuming thru my house.
Here's how it went: I spent about 30 minutes on my downstairs and then let the unit rest (so I could rest); and then went to do the upstairs about 20 minutes later. After running the vacuum for about 5 minutes, I couldn't operate the handset control buttons (on/off and powerhead). So I unpluged the unit from the outlet and then plugged it back in and the control buttons wouldn't work at all (now they wouldn't even light up). After doing a little research on this (which I should have done more of to begin with), I found out that other people had the same issue. Some had it from when they just put the vacuum together and tried to use it for the first time. Others had it happen within the first month or two. So my recommendation to you is DON'T BUY THIS ITEM!

I wouldn't be surprised if Hoover ends up doing a recall on this piece of junk (which I'm putting nicely). In an attempt to find out how long I would be without a vacuum, I called the closest Hoover warranty service center (which was about 24 miles away). The shop guy told me that they are no longer a service center for Hoover, and apologized.
