This vacuum is great for pet hair. We own a 80lb German shepherd that sheds everywhere. With a new baby in the house that crawls everywhere, it is imperative to keep the carpets clean. I was surprised how well it did. The cleanliness indicator was pretty sweet. I had no clue the vacuum was self propelled too. It was an added bonus. Bottom line: This is an EXCELLENT vacuum for the price. We have only owned it for 3 weeks. So time will tell how it holds up in the long run.

It's so powerful in pulling me around, my arm gets tired from pulling it back. I'm afraid to use it on my Berber carpet; it might cause a snag/pull on a loose carpet thread at the joined area.

Worked for a year

By 

from New York

Comments about Hoover U5491900 Anniversary WindTunnel Bagged Upright Vacuum:

Now all I smell is burnt.  It won't vacuum and the only suction is form the hose.  It won't pick up anything.  Now the front housing broke the bottom two clips when shutting it.  I tried replacing the belt still only problems.  Would wish for a vacuum that lasts longer than a year.

I WISH I could give it 5 Stars!

By 

from Stow, OH, United States

Comments about Hoover U5491900 Anniversary WindTunnel Bagged Upright Vacuum:

I'm glad I didn't have to pay for this one! (I inherited it.) The filters are just silly! When they get dirty the machine starts blowing dirty dust everywhere and I can't get the Hepa filter door to shut tightly! I'm 60, been using Hoover & Electrolux for 52 years. (That's right, 52 years, I was the one that kept our house cleaned up when I lived at home.But, my mom always used Electrolux & still does! With NO complaints!) When I moved out I bought a new Electrolux, of course, and I loved it so much I bought another one for my Aunt. But, as I got older I thought I'd try Hoover.(Kept the Electrolux canister for cleaning edges, furniture, cars, etc.) I loved my first Hoover, a Concept 2 Power Drive with ALL the bells and whistles, (and that was before they used the term "bells and whistles"!) It's STILL running after 35 years of HEAVY use, but the handle won't stay together & it's so old I can't get another one. So it's in the closet waiting for me to get up enough nerve to trash it. ;(   But this new Hoover, The WindTunnel, well, it picks up ok, but the filters are too much trouble and I agree with everyone else here - when I use the hose it causes the machine to fall over-even when I turn it around and pull it backwards! AND the cord is ALWAYS in the way - and yes Virginia, I know how to put it on the little hook - but it doesn't stay on the little hook! All in all I think I could find a better machine with fewer annoyances for the same amount. But I still like Hoover and Electrolux products.

Good cleaning on carpets.

By 

from Brooklyn, NY, United States

Comments about Hoover U5491900 Anniversary WindTunnel Bagged Upright Vacuum:

I had this vacuum since 2007. It never crashed. Once every couple of months the belt would rip, but can get fixed right away. Very easy to use and for the price.

Great sweeper!

By 

from Goleta, CA, United States

Comments about Hoover U5491900 Anniversary WindTunnel Bagged Upright Vacuum:

We have had our Hoover Windtunnel for almost six years.  We have never had to replace anything.  For the first time in the history of its use, we noticed a slight decline in suction and smelled a burning odor.  We opened it up, and found it very easy to remove parts, clean and reassemble.  The sweeper works as good as new now.  Looking to many more years of this reliable and affordable sweeper!

    Have had it for 2 years

    By 

    from Hawaii

    Comments about Hoover U5491900 Anniversary WindTunnel Bagged Upright Vacuum:

    I have had it for years and have always loved it. You won’t find thie vaccum in a repair shop. It’s easy to maintain. There is just only one concern I have. I have never even changed the “secondary filterâ€� on this website I went to go order one and the one it tells me is for this is actually for a “self propelledâ€� vacuum. Under the “specifications of this vacuum it says that it is NOT “self propelledâ€� so is the website wrong. I am a little confused. Even with me not even realizing I needed to change this “secondary filterâ€� it has done a really great job for me!

    totally broken

    By 

    from DANA, KY

    Comments about Hoover U5491900 Anniversary WindTunnel Bagged Upright Vacuum:

    The first one worked wonderful, except I have to unclog it every few months. It did not have the self propelled option. Transferred it to my small office and purchased this one for home. After 11 months a wheel fell off and the brush stopped turning. I call customer service and was told only the motor was under warranty. I got my papers out and it states that the machine has a full 3 year warranty. I am calling a service center to see what they tell me. It is a 70+ mile trip (one way) for the service center and I would not be willing to do this and pay. I have purchased Hoover for over 20 years including the carpet cleaners for my rentals. If this is not resolved, this will be my last.

    Comments about Hoover U5491900 Anniversary WindTunnel Bagged Upright Vacuum:

    This model seems like it is made of cheaper plastics and cheaper latches than my previous Windtunnel vacuum. The suction is ok, but not as good as I had before. Glad I saved my old vacuums upholstery brush with the wheel as this did not come with one. The cord is a bit shorter than my other model.
    I like having a bagged vacuum for ease of emptying dirt and bags are inexpensive and easy to apply. The price was reasonable I suppose, but I would not buy this again as it just isn't the same quality as the older model Windtunnel.

    Good strong vacuum

    Comments about Hoover U5491900 Anniversary WindTunnel Bagged Upright Vacuum:

    Have had for a year, have longer carpet that the automatic height adjusting vacuums would not work on, and this one does. Strong suction, cleans well. The attachment hose is to short for my use.
