We have 3 indoor dogs, 2 are long hair golden retrievers. We've put up with hair and debris on the carpets because we couldn't find a vacuum with enough suction. Even our $1,200 Kirby couldn't get the job done. But, when I borrowed my neighbor's Hoover Platinum I knew my prayers were answered! Mine was on back order, but well worth the wait. My carpets look like new again and we've added another golden to the mix! THANKS ABT for great service and the best price [$] devlivered!!!

I lke the way it cleans carpets, but only so-so on bare floors. Only two attachments, and light weight ones at that. No wand extention availble so if you have drapes or spider webs on the ceiling you can't reach them. Also unit is too large to fit under and around furniture, so the lack of an extension for the hose, and a smaller power brush is a very large negative. Apparently the accountants who cut manufacturing costs on this unit never consulted the engineering department about its lack of standard cleaning applications that every home owners uses. For the price and the name I expected a premium Hoover vacumn cleaner, but my older $100.00 Hoover out performed this model, and is built out of more heavy duty and metal parts, with more cleaning tools and a longer hose. I don't advise this unit for anyone who wishes to clean their home. Its like a car with no doors, seats, window glass, or hood or trunk lid. The basis rug cleaning works, but nothing else works properly because of lack of good design.

5 years and still going strong!

Comments about Hoover Platinum Collection Cyclonic Bagless Upright Vacuum:
Bought this bagless upright around 5 years ago and it's been the BEST vacuum I've ever owned! I have a tri-level house so we have a dyson on the lowest level, and our Hoover on the highest. The Hoover has out performed the dyson! I recommend any Hoover product to anyone shopping for a vacuum.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Stopped picking up
from Lake Lure, NC
My husband bought me this for Christmas. I have used it several times but today it stopped picking up dirt on the hardwood floors and the suction coming from the handheld house is not good. I turned it over to see if there was any blockage but there is no red dial on the bottom of the vacuum. Also, the handheld house no longer clicks into place.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Burn smell when its on.
from GA, United States
We got this vacuum for our wedding and after dumping out the contents and starting the vacuum back up I noticed a strong burning smell. I checked the filters and bought new ones because they were pretty dirty. After changing them the vacuum still smells like burning plastic.
bare floor feature doesn't work
from Fostoria, OH
I bought this vacuum a few months ago because I purchased shag carpet and I couldn't push my Dyson through it. I also have laminate floors that I cannot use the beater brush on. I push the button but it will not stay down therefore the beaters keep spinning. Tried to call and left callback number, but no return call yet.
I bought this vacuum as a replacement and I am "Highly Disappointed". Same this is happening to me as several other owners. Very, very hard to push and the cord is now acting up. I am sorry I bought it. If I could take it back I would. When I know that I have to clean I get aggravated that I have to use it knowing how hard it is to push.
hate this vac
from Rutland, MA, United States
I bought this vac about a year ago, it worked good for about a week then it started with this annoying sqeek that won't go away, it is very hard to push and have to go over the same spot many times, I have a few very low pile rugs that it won't push on no matter what setting I use it also leaves dust marks on the carpet where ever you pull it back and then push forward again. The bare floor button makes the vac suction the floor. I can't stress enough how much I hate this thing but have to keep using it because can't afford to buy another one. oh yeah when I empty it of dog fur I have to reach my hands and fingers to to pull all the fur out of it. Worst vac I ever owned.
from PA, United States
Bought this unit to replace an older Wind Tunnel. Great while it lasted (about 4 months) and then the switch broke.
Excellent Hoover !
from Atlanta, GA, United States
After careful research I purchased this beautiful Hoover UH70600 and I am very pleased with this vacuum. It is extremely powerful and picked up deep down dust from my carpet that my other high end vacuum missed the day before. The nice retractable cord reaches very far and the reach of the stretch hose is really impressive. The handle mounted on/off switch is very convenient, as is the quick disconnect/connect hose for the great attachments. The dirt chamber is very easy to empty and clean. Really like the carpet fluffing brush roll pattern and the HEPA filtration. I added optional pet accessories for a truly great cleaning machine.
The BEST Vacuum I've ever owned or used!!!
from South Dakota, United States
I have done cleaning for a living using very expensive commercial vacuums, and I've even had the cheap one's at home, and never before have I been this happy and impressed by any vacuum to date. We decided to upgrade our vacuum and got this one a week ago, and we only managed to get through one room and filled the canister twice before plugging up the washable filter. One pass and it was making a very noticeable and clean difference, by the time I got done in that one room it was looking like we got new carpet. Finally got through another room today with it emptying the canister 3-times in the dinning room alone and again had to stop because the washable filter was plugged. Our last vacuum was a bag vacuum and then it had a Hepa changeable filter we had to change pretty often, but you could still see the fine country air dust still blowing by making it look like you hadn't ever dusted your home. Not with this vacuum, I'm going to buy a 2nd washable filter for it, because it keeps getting plugged up, but its simply because this vacuum is really doing the job that no vacuum I've had to date can or will do. I've read the other reviews and then looked at the replacement parts for this vacuum and saw they are reasonably priced. So even if I wear out a part on it I can still afford to buy another replacement part for it. Not to mention seeing how clean it gets things is simply amazing, I vacuumed today after dusting and I didn't have to go back and dust again, so I'm not complaining I plugged up the washable filter because seriously it did its job!!! I am so glad I bought this vacuum, best investment I've made this year!

impossible to clean
from Encinitas, CA, United States
Vacuumed fine, but it is impossible to get the bottom basket off. My boyfriend got it off 3 times with a lot of difficulty. This time it will not come off. The vacuum is useless at this point. I wish I had returned it the first time I tried to clean it. I've had it at this point, next vacuum I get I will know to look for this problem.
