Rated 5 out of 5Â by sludge Powerful, versatile
Needed a replacement for a Hoover Wind Tunnel bagged vac that finally gave it up after 10+ years, and wanted to get away from bags. Over 2500 ft2 of hardwood, stone and tile, needed something that could handle multiple surfaces and still do area rugs. We have dogs and cats so needed something to handle all the fur and dirt that accompanies them. So far I'm impressed - looks like I should have been emptying my old bagged vac weekly if what I pick up with this one is indicative. It leaves all surfaces dirt free, and seeing how much fur I'm picking up reassures me that I'm getting the house clean.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by JLS Just bought it--Love it.
Just bought this Vacuum today, replaced old Hoover from 2004. First time using it, my wife and I could tell this product worked much better than our old one. Very quiet, great suction and dirt canister was full after just a few minutes--and we vacuum at least 2 times per week. Our old Hoover was great, but obviously was not working very well. Huge difference with this one! Canister was easy to clean, but had to reach in for small clump of pet hair--but still 100 times better than old Hoover with internal filter. We did some research first, and are very happy so far. Highly recommend you go get one.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by Verified Reviewer Not sure I like this
Just retired a Hoover that was over 30 years old...yes it was heavy but also self propelled. Pros on new one. Does not lose suction and does well on pet hair. This new one for the money seems cheaply made...everything plastic. ON/OFF switch must be pushed hard to get it to turn off (even then you may have to push it several times). Seems to get hot very quickly. The lever to turn off the beater sticks at times in the beater off position even when you have the handle all the way disengaged. I love Hoover products and was hoping this one would last as long as the other I have.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by British rewind cord will not retract
We bought this 3 months ago and it seems to work fine except the cord will not retract and cannot figure out how to get it to rewind. I cannot find any way to get reel off without going through major issues. UH70600 is model number. Really why bother making it retractable if its not easy to access to rewind it. My lawn mower, I can do it. My power washer ,I can do it . And now when button would not work and could not take enough apart to get at it I, pulled some more to if it would snap back and now I see red tape which I assume is point of no return . Poor design.
