    I bought this to deal with cat hair, and it does a decent job. I did end up buying a Pet hair vacuum as well, just for the attachments. But this is my daily vacuum and nothing gives me more pleasure, than watching my husband use it.

  • Hoover vacuum
    Verified Purchase

    This Hoover is SO much better than the Eureka bag less it replaced. Suction is very good on both carpet and floor. The bag is easy to change and not messy and dusty like the bag lass vacuums. It doesn't require much effort to push. I do wish the hose was a bit more "stretchy" like the Hoover I had 6 years ago. The vacuum is well constructed and nothing has fallen off or broke in 6 months of use like the Eureka. I like the way the telescoping extension and crevice tool, store on the vacuum. Overall I'd say this one is a keeper.

    I wanted a bagged vacuum. I do not like the bag less versions and, I have always truly liked Hoover. Personally I miss my 1970's version but, this is still a good product.

    I loved bagged vacuums, and this one does the trick. It has great suction, and the cord is very long! Not too heavy to use on the stairs. Perfect!

  • This vacuum is simply amazing!

    I vacuum almost every day because we have two inside dogs. We have a lot of fur - on the couches, on the carpets, and on the tile. I chose Hoover because I have a bagless T-Series, but it is starting to pick up the dog smell. I started looking for a bagged vacuum because I've never had a bagged machine pick up a permanent smell. This vacuum far exceeded my expectations the moment I turned it on. The suction is incredible. The hose is super long (I think it would be great for stairs). The vacuum is not self-propelled, but it seems like it. The brushroll turns off and on so it can be used effectively on hard floors. I highly recommend this vacuum. The only thing I would change is the place the cord comes out of the machine. It comes out of the bottom, but I prefer for my cord to come out of the top.

  • Excellent vacuum cleaner!
    Reviewed at http://www.http://www.http://hoover.com/

    I bought this vacuum because I wanted to switch back from bagless to bagged.  This vacuum is AWESOME!  It's incredibly powerful.  The brushroll can be turned off for floor cleaning.  The HEPA bags have excellent filtration.  There's not one sign of dust in the bag compartment or on the filters.  If you buy this vacuum, which I highly recommend you do, you should know two things:  1.  It's HEAVY (like Kirby heavy), but how often does one lift the vacuum cleaner unless you have stairs?  2.  Be prepared to buy bags...often.  The bag lasts me about 2 weeks.  It's so powerful they fill up fast.  Also, although I've completely filled up each bag I've put in this vacuum, the check bag indicator has yet to turn red, so you do have to check the bag every so often.

  • Great Vacuum
    Reviewed at http://www.http://www.http://hoover.com/

    Great vacuum. Picks up cat hair very well and is very versatile - going from thick carpet to hardwoods is a breeze. It is a little heavy but not nearly as heavy as my other vacuum (which we nicknamed the beast due to it's heavy weight and hard maneuverability - it's like wrestling a polar bear). It is still light enough to use on the stairs and the long hose makes it even easier to vacuum without having to pick up the whole vacuum to get to the top of the stairs. I prefer a bagged vacuum (much easier to empty than trying to clean out a bagless model) and this one is very easy and simple with just a push of a button. I would definitely recommend this vacuum.

  • If tweaked, it'd be practically perfect
    Reviewed at http://www.http://www.http://hoover.com/

    We vacuum weekly or less. No shedding pets, house is 1400 sq ft. Overall, we are satisfied with this machine. THE BASICS: 1) I bought the WindTunnelMAX in Sept 2011 to replace a 17-yr old Hoover. The old one is so loud we need protective earmuffs or earplugs when we use it, but it still runs well even though parts are falling off of it. We've delegated it to the garage for vacuuming out the cars. The WindTunnelMAX is so much quieter than the old one that it is a joy to vacuum now. I would not say that it is quiet; it is a vacuum cleaner after all. It doesn't hurt my ears to use it and we don't have to shout over the noise to be heard. 2) The suction is great, maybe even a bit too much at times. If the bag needs changing, the suction drops off. (This happens about when the change-bag indicator shows a hint of red and only when the vacuum is running.) If I vacuum the kitchen floor (vinyl sheet) using the bare floor setting, it actually pulls up the vinyl, so I use a carpet setting in there. On wood and tile floors, it works great using the bare floor setting. However, I can't vacuum drapes or curtains because it just sucks the fabric into the wand attachment. There is no way that I can see to adjust the suction. SOME REALLY NICE, ELEGANTLY ENGINEERED FEATURES: 3)The brushroll on/off is foot controlled, the brushroll does not operate when the vacuum is engaged in the locked-upright position, and when the unit is released from the locked position, the brushroll engages automatically. When I vacuum the hardwood floors, if I've put it in the upright position, I have to be sure to step on the control to disengage the agitator when I resume vacuuming. 4)The extra long hose for tools locks into place. Our old one was held in place by friction, so after a couple years of wear, it kept pulling out of its resting place, dangling at the side, making the suction drop whenever you moved the vacuum. This hose is a good length. I would not want a shorter one. I'm not sure it's a full 15 feet in *usable* length, but it is long enough for normal use. I can't quite do the entire length of our stairs with the hose and attachments, but I can get the last 2 or 3 steps done from the other end without having the unit resting on the stairs at any point. 5) Changing the belt and getting tangled stuff off the roller is incredibly easy. The access cover to the brushroll and belt is very easy to take off without any tools, and goes back on just as easily. We have not had to replace the belt yet. We don't have pets, but we do have a lot of threads and yarns that collect in the sewing and living areas so I've had the brush roll off about every other time we vacuum. I think that keeping the roller free of debris has extended the belt life, but perhaps we don't vacuum as much as the folks who have to replace belts every two months (!?). As for clogs that others have mentioned, I can't say that it is a real issue. If hair or something hangs up at the nozzle intake, lint will collect there, but it is very easy to clean out when I clean the brushroll of collected debris. (hint: it's best to put the belt end of the roller in place, then the other end. It's a lot easier than trying to stretch the belt into place after the other side is secured.) 6) The air-powered brush attachment is very easy to take apart and clean out, then goes back together easily. It works reasonably well if you don't press too hard when vacuuming carpet. It is not a powered agitator like the brushroll because it has no motor driving it, so enough force on the brush can stop it from turning. 7) The machine maneuvers well on any floor, doesn't tip over when I use the hose and tools unless I pull hose longer than it is designed to go. It is not self-propelled, but it doesn't take a lot of muscle to make it move, except for the stairs, and those I can vacuum with the hose and tools. NOT-SO-GOOD FEATURES: 8)The telescoping wand is much too short and it collapses too easily when it is extended. I'd like either two separate wand pieces for the extra length, or a longer telescoping wand with an active locking mechanism. The telescoping thing allows for variable length of the wand, but the wand is just too short for that to matter. When fully extended without an attachment, it is only 20 inches beyond the end of the hose. The purpose of the wand is to extend the reach of my hand. Having a long hose allows me to use the tools far from the unit, but only getting a couple more feet in length beyond my hand when I use the wand isn't sufficient to relieve my back or shoulders of strain from bending over or to avoid kneeling to get at low areas. The wand and extension from my old machine gave me enough length to get into corners of the ceiling. I am average height for a woman, and I can't reach that far with this wand unless I put the crevice tool on or I stand on a stepstool. My tall husband and son can reach, but they can reach the ceiling without any wand. 9) The crevice tool is long, which is nice, but it has a funny, thick end. It is not great for actually getting the end into a crevice, so it must rely on the suction at 1/2 inch from the crevice being adequate enough to pull dirt out. I don't know if it works well enough. The end is shaped in such a way as to reduce suction around the tip of the tool. Maybe the suction of the machine is too much with a straight, thin-edged crevice tool? Also, the end is too fat to get into areas that I used to clean with the old, thinner-ended crevice tool, such as the radiators around and behind the fins. Unfortunately, the tools from our old machine don't fit this hose or wand. 10) The crevice tool fits into the wand when stored on the machine, but if I use the wand with another attachment, the crevice tool doesn't stay put on the machine. The base fits on the spot for the wand, but there is nothing to hold the upper part stable, so it flops around and falls off if the machine moves. If there was a longer base or something to hold the tool there, it would work well. Maybe I'll try a rubber band to hold it to the large clip that holds the wand when it it stored. Hadn't thought of that until I started this review! 11) I miss the small upholstery nozzle. It comes with a small upholstery brush and an air-powered brush that almost make up for it, but I would like the simpler tool better for some tasks. The bristles of the upholstery brush are short and fairly stiff. I wouldn't use it for dusting, as I could use the old one. I am used to one with longer, more flexible bristles, so it was a mild adjustment in how best to use this one. 12) It is awkward to use the machine on stairs. It is a bit too heavy for using on each step, and I have to bend over in order to maneuver the agitator for each step, which is bad for the back and I feel like I'm going to lose my balance. This isn't much different from the old machine we had, but it feels more awkward or off balance to vacuum the steps with this one, I think because it is a taller machine. 13) The places to grab the unit for carrying up and downstairs allow for a balanced carry, but they aren't well-positioned for actually using the machine on the stairs. 14) Our old vacuum cleaner had a power cord that came out from the top of the unit just below the handle. This one has a cord that exits from the bottom. There is a clip just below the handle to hold the cord up out of the way, but I think it would have been better to have the cord come out above the hose area so the cord and hose don't have to overlap each other. The clip wouldn't be needed and you wouldn't have the probability of running over the cord as much if the cord were at the top of the unit. 15) At 15 inches, the front end of the nozzle is very wide, and it doesn't actually capture all of that width in the suction. The nozzle leaves about an inch of carpet on the sides and at the front of the nozzle unvacuumed. The front of the nozzle goes just under the edge of the couch and chair, but the area actually vacuumed is about 1/2 inch out from the edge of the furniture. I have to move the furniture to get that small strip, but sometimes I just want to run the vacuum quickly without shoving furniture around. The width is good for broad areas of carpet, but maneuvering the vacuum into narrower areas is impossible. I guess the style these days is for wider and wider nozzles, but I'd prefer a nozzle that is a couple inches narrower for getting around some of the furniture. 16) I don't particularly like the D-shaped handle because I can't control the cord as easily during use. With the straight handle of the old machine, I could just hold the cord and handle together in one hand. It's possible that a large hand could hold the cord in the lower part of the handle where there is a groove, but my hands are too small to hold the handle that way and be able to maneuver the machine. If the cord is in the clip, it works okay, but the cord is controlled better when I have it in my hand. I lose some cord length and hold the cord at the handle awkwardly instead. WISHLIST: 17) I would love to have a true powered tool, like canister vacs usually have, to do the stairs. The air-powered brush doesn't really agitate the carpet to bring up dirt from deeper layers, though it works well enough on the surface and the suction seems fine. 18) If it had the Dirt-Finder feature, better Edge Cleaning with a narrower nozzle (perhaps 12 or 13 inches), and a longer, stable wand, it would be practically perfect in every way.

  • Hoover Only
    Reviewed at http://www.http://www.http://hoover.com/

    Hoover vacuums all the way since the days of the early 80's. Nevertheless, the manufacturing process has definitely changed now that cheaper quality parts are being used; not necessarily a bad thing, either. But just like many other products, quality manufacturing is not the same as many years ago. Hoover is no exception. Three pets make for frequent vacuuming, and I bought this for its ability to clean both carpets and hardwood floors quickly. Going from bagless to bag vacuuming is much easier to handle. It is one step I do not want to deal with. The suction is very good (a brand new machine should be great); the chord length is sufficient, and this machine is relatively quiet. The roller suspension is key for not scattering dirt & debris.

Questions & Answers

  • Q:

    "how well does it pick up pet hair; will it clean bare floors? Jerry, Timonium. MD"

    • A:

      It does a good job and works quite well on bare floors. It is because of pet hair that I chose this vacuum. In my experience, all vacuums, despite the cost, lose suction power in a couple of years. Pet hair kills the cheap and the expensive alike. That's why I stick with these Hoovers. They are excellent when new and replacing them is more affordable than getting those expensive ones repaired. Also, clearing the tube when it gets clogged has to be easy to do or I hate the vacuum. This one is easy.

    "Where does the hose come off for use with attachments? Most new ones with bags the hose has to be pulled from the base. The one I have now is easily accessed from the back."
