Let me start of by saying, having 4 animals that shed, I vacuum daily...sometimes tiwce. I want to say this Hoover is an Awesome vacuum! It has excellent power! Some people complained that the vacuum is loud. Actually, is is not louder than the other 3 uprights I own. The only problem I have had with it is that I broke the cheap plastic piece that holds the powered hand tool on the front of the vacuum on its second use! So be gentle with it when you remove the hand tool! Surely Hoover could have designed that piece a little better. It is literally a tiny piece of plastic that the hand tool is suppsed to snap in and out of. Problem solved however with a small piece of velcro on the back of the hand tool. Having had several newer vacuums, incuding a Bissel Lift off pet that is a COMPLETE DISASTER and actually heavier than this self propelled Hoover, I can say this is the best mid priced model on the market. It is extremely easy to manuever around the house. You just have to get used to the fact that when you get close to furniture or in tight areas, you should turn the power drive off. Besides the Bissel, the other bagless vacuum we have is a Eureka Whirlwind which was a cheap model we purchaed for the second floor but has held up well. It however, has a a very awakward dust cup that you have to remove a filter inside the cup to empty it. The Bissel has an extremely small dust cup that has to be emptied 2 to 3 times per use (and I live in a town house). Lets just say that after my experience with these two vacuums, I have had enough of the mess and inconvenience that bagless vacuums are, not to mention the filters you are always either washing or replacing! Why did I choose the Windtunnel? Well, I recently was given my grandmothers Hoover Concept one with powerdrive which has to be at least 30 years old. It still works great by the way after installing a new bag and belts. This vacuum has Hoover's "Power Drive" (self propelled) which as a kid, I remember being facinated with. It was the 80's what can I say...lol Unfortunately, Hoover has decided to discontinue making the brushrolls for this excellent model so although it is still going strong, it misses some ares of the carpet due to the worrn brushes. After using it for the first time in years, I thought to myself, wow, I don't have to go out to the garage and dump or shake anything! What I decided I liked most about this vacuum was that it used bags and was self propelled. So I decided to start looking for a replacement with the things I new I wanted. This is why I decided to go with the Hoover Windtunnel. My only negative fellings toward Hoover is that they abandoned manufacturing in the US a few years ago [@]. But after reading the reviews on a few sites, checking out the fact that it has a 3 year warrenty, and knowing the quality of my other newer vacuums from different manufacturers, I figured what the heck, I'll give Hoover a try again. I am glad I did! After looking at many online retailers, including the big box stores, I discoverd that the Hoover website offerred the exact same model at significant savings! The bags on the Hoover site are also cheaper than almost everywere else, espeically when discounted for buying more than 1. So my impressions of this machine so far a very good. IT is exactly what I was looking for. It pulled up the carpet pile up very well and sucked all the dog and cat hair off the furniture with ease. AFter flipping over the new vacuum and the old Hoover Concept, (I know, I'm a nerd, but I was curious) I was pleasantly surprised to see that the self propelled unit on the new vacuum looks to be almost exactly the same as the one on the sturdy old Concept 1. Looks like Hoover must have know a good thing when they saw it! That is about all that is similar. Is it a sturdy American made product that you remember Hoovers being? No, but if you look around, it is much better than the current competition at this price. I am so far very pleased with this vacuum! Sorry for the run on's and the long review.

We have had two of these. We liked the self-propelled feature and the powerful suction,so when the first one broke, we returned it and got another one. When the second one broke too, both had the carpet/hard floor selector switch break, we realized it must have been a design flaw. We are not willing to gamble on a third one. Currently looking for a dependable/reliable replacement.

      Comments about Hoover WindTunnel Bagged Blue Upright Vacuum:

      Compared to the past few vacuums I owned, this one feels as it grips the carpet and removes the dirt. I did not get this feeling of clean with other vacuums.

      Service and delivery comments:

      We brought it home with us. Extremely easy to assemble.

      Comments about Hoover WindTunnel Bagged Blue Upright Vacuum:

      I bought this vacuum about a month ago. It is almost exactly the same as one I had previously that finally died (after about 10 years of use). Vacuum works great but registering it was challenging. The information on the plate which is located near the bottom of the vacuum is small and for older people both the location of the plate and the print size is challenging. Can't you put that information in a more easily accessible location and with larger print.

      Best Vacuum on the Market

      By 

      from San Diego

      Comments about Hoover WindTunnel Bagged Blue Upright Vacuum:

      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!

      Comments about Hoover WindTunnel Bagged Blue Upright Vacuum:

      Having used a Hoover self propelled sweeper since 1985, I was so very pleased to find a replacement for my tired one. It is even easier to use and has the attachments on board. I am 82 and the self propelled feature is as asset to my living alone.

      Comments about Hoover WindTunnel Bagged Blue Upright Vacuum:

      This is our 2nd Hoover Windtunnel. Our first one we simply wore it out and when it came time to replace it we looked at other brands but came back to the Windtunnel mainly because it is self-propelled and easy to use.

      Very disappointed

      By 

      from Grafton, WI, United States

      Comments about Hoover WindTunnel Bagged Blue Upright Vacuum:

      While this machine looks good and has a good rating from most sources, I found no mention of carpet height concerns. This machine works well on hard floors and lower pile carpets using one of the three height settings. However, the highest of three settings is VERY INSUFFICIENT for a carpet pile height of 5/8". This machine was purchased purposely for use on a new plush carpet and the combination is a huge disappointment. The cleaner setting cannot be elevated high enough, which results in too much suction pulling on the carpet and too much effort to move the machine, even with the power assist. The concern is that the carpet may eventually be ruined and/or the machine may experience an early death. This machine was a very poor purchase.

      Great Sweeper

      By 

      from Pennsylvania, United States

      Comments about Hoover WindTunnel Bagged Blue Upright Vacuum:

      I did a lot of searching before I chose this sweeper and I am so glad I did. This is a great sweeper. I have COPD, and running the sweeper can be difficult at times but with the self propelled feature this sweeper has, running the vacuum is a breeze.

      Two stars for two years

      By 

      from Oak Ridge, TN, United States

      Comments about Hoover WindTunnel Bagged Blue Upright Vacuum:

      Mine just died- motor burned out in a cloud of smoke. It lasted just over two years. I expected more. We use it for weekly cleaning of short pile and Berber carpets in an average sized home. The front brush attachment broke right after we bought this; it was noisy while it worked but did clean ok. If you've ever tried to take one of these apart you've found they aren't made to be repaired. More junk in the landfill.
