Rated 3 out of 5Â by SweepingBeauty pros and cons
I like the fact that this vacuum can go under beds unlike my cannister vac. The suction is amazing without sending dust bunnies flying up in the air. There are some great attachments for cleaning upholstery and stairs, but this machine weighs a LOT and when you use the hose attachments, the vac falls over. The self propelling is fine on carpets, but when you transition to hardwood the vac zips away from you and seems to have a life of its own. The black rubber around the edge of the vac marks baseboards, so you have to follow up with a magic eraser. I though I would like the wider base, but it's a bit clunky and hard to maneuver in smaller spaces.

I had a Hoover wind tunnel and my husband decided to buy me a higher rated vacuum, according to Consumer reports. It was more expensive. I fought with that thing for a few years. It never picked up well, the hose kept falling off, and the dog hair was impossible to remove from the furniture using it. The only thing I liked about it was the long hose for doing steps. So I bought another wind tunnel and I love it. The dog hair on the couch is gone! The carpets are cleaner then they have been in years. I wish the hose was longer but I can't complain as it cleans so well. It is easy to use, easy to assemble and I don't mind vacuuming again!

I replaced my 25 year old Hoover WindTunnel last year only because the roller bristles had worn down through misuse on the part of a family member who will remain unnamed. I bought this updated model last year and still love it - so much so, that I just bought one each for my son and daughter who recently moved into their own places.
