Rated 2 out of 5Â by 95395982 After five years the on button gets stuck and I have to unplug it to turn it off. Now, I just got new carpets and it won't even move across rug while on the highest setting.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by dtamm44 Broke on the 3rd use
This vacuum worked great the first three times I used it. Then, it broke. I have read that this is not so uncommon with this vacuum. But, I determined to give it a second chance and exchanged it for a new one. The new one, was in factory packaging, but when I opened it, there was electrical tape on the cord. Mystified, I pulled off the electrical tape and found a damaged cord. Since no customer could package a vacuum that perfectly, I must conclude that someone at Hoover just covered the damaged cord with electrical tape and called it good. Really unimpressive in my opinion.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Nanaxthree Great cleaning power,easy to use
This is my second Hoover self propelled wind tunnel. My other is 11 years old and still works fine. Now it is for upstairs and the new one is for downstairs. It has great suction, and the self propelled function makes it easy to use. It is definitely worth the extra cost to get self propelled. The new one has some user friendly improvements, but same Hoover quality. Also I like the fact that it has bags. They are hepa filtered and when full just take out and throw away. I know the bagless vacuums are trendy now, but emptying and cleaning the filter is a hassle in my opinion.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Jen07 The best vaccum!
I owned this same vaccum for over 6 years before it started having problems. (I do vacuum my house twice a day) I thought about buying a Dyson, but there were so many mixed reviews, so I decided to stay with what I know works! I put the vacuum together in about 5 minutes and was amazed at how easy it was to push, if my pinky could navigate the vacuum it would have worked! The suction is awesome as my previous one was; the only difference is the cord, it's a little bit shorter than the old Hoover, but for all the positives, this tiny detail is no bother! Love it!
