Our old Dirt Devil needed to be replaced. The upright lock was broken. I put in a new filter and vacuumed the bed room and upstairs. Then my wife agreed to go and buy this model. Our main floor has a short wool carpet and it looked not too bad. Plugged in the Hover and I immediately noticed that it was a lot quieter than the Devil. The amount of dirt that it removed was impressive. I cleaned the unit and went back upstairs to see if this unit would pick up anything more. The amount of dirt that it pulled out was very impressive. We had a oval wool rug on the Hardwood and it now looks very clean. The only thing that it seems to be missing is the upholstery tool (the square one). At this price point you would think that it would be included. We did get the crevice and the thin tool but not the wide upholstery tool. This is definitely an upgrade over the DD. My wife thinks that it is heavy, but it only weighs about the same as our miniature German Schnauzer. It rolls very nicely and is much easier to use than the DD. As our two dogs have wool, and not hair, we did not have to remove dog hair.The clear roller brush window is a real plus to see that it is working along with a switch to turn it off (finally).I have bought a few vacs over the past 40 years and this is about the best price point (it was on sale for[$]) for this type. Who wants to pay $600 for a vac? It has a lot more suction than the DD also.

We have had this vacuum (well same exact one but at the time of purchase it was just called the Wind Tunnel Cyclone â€" but even the parts are the same as this one) for 3 1/2 years now. After about two months it started loosing suction power and shutting off on its own and wouldn't turn back on. I realized that there was another filter in the vacuum up under the top of where the canister bin sits. I took that out, washed it and let it air dry, put it back and it worked great! About 1 1/2 years after we bought the vacuum, the roller stopped spinning while on the carpet. When it would try to spin, it would make a horrible, loud squeaking sound, almost a chirping. It would spin if you lifted it up but that isn't going to do any good to vacuum the dog fur off the carpet. So (even though it is advertised that you should never had to replace the belts) I ordered the 2 new belts and new filters; replaced everything and spent about $35 to do it. It helped some but now it wont spin at all if it is touching the floor. I have now taken the bottom of the vacuum apart 5 or 6 times in the 3 1/2 years I have owned it. It still has suction but isn't any good to us if we cant vacuum up the dog fur. I have cut my losses and my the [$] cost of the vacuum and bought a new one that will hopefully last longer. I cannot justify putting more money into this one when it isn't going to fix the issues anyhow. I have also been told that Hoover doesn't make the quality vacuums and products they used to, they do not last as long. I was rather disappointed with how this all turned out especially since I did like the vacuum. Better luck to me next time I guess. I had even spoke so highly of the vacuum when I got it, I talked my mother-in-law into buying them for her other 2 sons who just bought houses. I hope theirs lasts longer than mine!

Best Vacuum Ever
from Chesterfield, VA, United States
I've had this vacuum for nearly 8 years. Not one problem! I truly don't get all the negative reviews here. My only complaint is that the unit is very heavy .... though when I lived in a 4-story home when I got it, the hose along with the wand attachments allowed me to vacuum the staircases with ease & I no longer had to carry a vacuum up/down stairs.

I bought the vacuum about 2-3 months ago. I used it regularly because I have 4 dogs. The vacuum sucked up a string in the carpet..I could smell burning rubber. I assumed the belt got fried. I let it cool opened it up the belt was still in tact put it back together.. and tried it again.. the roller would only turn slightly then stop (figured the belt got stretched from the heat)... so .. the next day I purchased 2 extra belts.. Installed a new one and put it back together.. same results.. I had cleaned off all of the strings and anything that may stop it.. It will only turn the roller a little and then the smell of burning rubber... I have had a vacuum last this short of time with all of the pets I have had over the years.. so disappointing and a waste of money.
Not very goos
from Chicago, IL, United States
This broke in 6 years. The "pet tool" never really worked well.
from Centralia, MO, United States
Have had this vacuum for years and has been awesome. However, the hose that connects base to upright section has broke and I can't find a replacement. It isn't even listed in the parts section on the website. Would like to fix. However, wife is pushing for a Kirby.
Hoover Perfect for Pets
Picks up pet hairs but nothing else. Possibly the most worthless piece of equipment I have had the misfortune to purchase. Must too heavy and unmanageable.
Used for three years
from Pennsylvania, United States
I have had this vac for 3+ years and have loved it! It does what it is advertised to do, and did an awesome job on my "previously thought-to-be clean" carpet. If I ever need to buy a new one, I hope they're still making this one!
Great for dog hair !!!
from Bolingbrook, il
Have had for almost 7 yrs., it has been wonderful picking up dog hair !!!
from St. Pete Beach, FL, United States
No other vacuum has ever picked up every last piece of hair like this one. We have one Golden Retriever and two German Shepherds. This one gets all the hair up easily - easy to empty the canister, easy to push and just keeps going! Have had this one two years and just thinking it is time to do something with the brushes as some hair is stuck in there; but it still works great and picks it all up. Love it - prefer to replace parts but would have no problem paying for a new one if I had to - worth every penny!
I LOVE MY HOOVER!
from San Diego, CA, United States
Years ago I had a Hoover I bought off an old couple who couldn't push it around any more. Hoovers have always had excellent suction and this one is no exception. This Hoover has great suction but it seems to almost propel itself. I have cats. I'm amazed at how much hair and dirt it picks up. I first tried the Shark Navigator because the professional reviewers liked it best. Then I brought this one home for a side by side comparison. The Hoover won hands down! I ran the Hoover over the same area as the Shark and it picked up tons more dirt left behind by the Shark. Then I ran the Hoover over an area not swept and followed with the Shark. The Shark didn't pick up anything! I love the retractable cord, too. I don't like the clean-up from the bagless but it's the same with all the bagless vacs. Hoover, if you're listening, would you consider making a clean-out brush for the canister? Other than that, you're the tops!
