I am a cleaning maven and I have tried all the major vacuum brands out there and this Hoover wind tunnel model is the BEST ever. It's powerful and beats my friend's expensive Kirby any day of the week. I love the hose attachment as its easy to use and have great suction. The upholstery attachment works very well and the vacuum is light enough to maneuver easily, yet heavy enough to feel like it's not made of junk. It works extremely well on my wood and tile floors as well! I just love this vacuum. I have bought 3 of them; one for my garage and outside courtyard, one for my second story and one for downstairs. My housekeeper really should be the one writing this review because she agrees it's her favorite vacuum of all of her clients' vacuums and that says a lot! Worth every penny of what you pay and not sure why it's so hard to find this model recently!
This vacuum is everything I was looking for. It's lightweight, powerful, easy to maneuver and easy to store. The cord is very long and the canister has protective bumpers keep walls and mouldings safe. All the tools fit inside. The floor brush is slim to fit under furniture and couches. It's gentle on wood floors. The upholstery tool works wonderfully on my couches. I had a Dyson Animal prior to this. Although it cleaned well, it was too heavy and bulky. As well as difficult to use when cleaning stairs or the hose tool. I love this new Miele.
I have owned several vacuums over the years and this one by far is the BEST vacuum of all! We LOVE our DYSON Big Ball Animal Upright Vacuum! It is amazing how much suction this vacuum has. I never cease to be amazed at how much comes out of our rugs and furniture and I consider myself extremely OCD about keeping my home white glove clean. I don't know where all the dirt and lint comes from, but this vacuum does a great job of getting everything! With many vacuums, when you need to use the attachments, it is a struggle to do so. With some of the expensive vacuums, you have to remove or detach the head in order to attach the hose and then attach individual tools; but, this isn't the case with Dyson. The hose is easily pulled from the handle and you simply attach the tool you wish to use. When you are finished using the tools, the hose can be easily placed back into the handle area and you are ready to use the vacuum head again. You can see the dirt receptacle so you can easily tell when it is getting full. And, when the receptacle is full, you can easily detach it from the vacuum with a simple press of a button. It has a convenient open handle on it you can use to easily carry the receptacle to wherever it is you choose to empty it. Depending on the weather, I prefer to step out onto my deck or into our garage to open the receptacle over a bag so I need not worry about the dirt or dust becoming airborne when I do this. The receptacle is enclosed and all you need to do is to press a trigger button which opens the spring loaded Bottom of the container causing it to empty. I just tie the bag off after doing this and toss it into the garbage and the receptacle is ready to be easily placed back onto the vacuum. It is very easy to empty. This vacuum comes with all the necessary tools for keeping your rugs, blinds, upholstery, and floor edges clean and dust free. I don't know about you, but I prefer to let my vacuum do the work instead of me and the Dyson has become my favorite vacuum of all time.
Everything about this upright Vacuum is the BEST... SO Versatile, you can unhinge the center (see through part) attach wands, etc, and carry easily for upholstery, etc. the suction is powerful, and there are Hepa and other filters... most can be removed and washed (do that sooner than later or it will take several washes). bought one for our daughter, and she LOVES it! Me, too!
