Product Details

Hoover Platinum Cyclonic Bagless Canister - S3865

The Hoover Platinum Collection™ Bagless Cyclonic Canister features a Multi-Stage Cyclonic sealed Filtration System and patented WindTunnel™ Technology. A detachable telescopic wand and a variety of on-board tools make it the only vacuum you'll need for a floor-to-ceiling clean!

Features:

Windtunnel Technology

  • Patented Windtunnel Technology™ features three distinct air tunnels to lift and remove dirt from carpet***, preventing dirt from scattering back onto your clean floor.

No Loss of Suction

  • Multi-stage cyclonic filtration system means that the air going thru the filter is cleaner than the air that was pulled into the vacuum so that the filter will stay clean longer, and the vacuum will have no loss of suction*.

Sealed HEPA Filtration system

  • The Hoover Platinum Collection™ Bagless Cyclonic Canister features a Multi-Stage Cyclonic sealed Filtration System made with HEPA media. HEPA media traps 99.97% of dirt, dust, and pollens down to 0.3 microns, for cleaner air than standard or allergen media**.

Intuitive Controls

  • Power button, suction control and brush-roll on/off switch located conveniently in handle.
    Easy foot pedal control adjusts nozzle to accommodate different carpet heights and floor types.

Easy Cleaning

  • Swivel neck design nozzle allows for easy steering.
    Automatic cord rewind - Retracts quickly and easily at the push of a button.

Bare floor tool -- poor design -- get rid of the brissles -- have to vacuum the brissles often while using it. I love the vacuum itself, but my little upholstery piece has broken and need to order a new one. Wish that piece was larger also. You might think about pairing up with Swiffer -- the Swiffer dusters work well in cleaning the turbo canister after vacuuming.

i prefer a canister over an upright for floors, furniture,drapes, ect., but an upright for carpet. my kenmore bagless upright quit after only 2 years. i needed a vacuum with an extended warrany without paying extra for it. the hoover model s3865 has a 6 year warranty. great for hardwood floors, but doesn't have the suction for carpet. does not have an upholstery brush wand is only 6inches long verses 12 floor tool has to fit in groove a certain way or it will fall off power button can accidently be turned off can not completely clean canister(can use swiffter wand but will not reach corners) but the NUMBER ONE COMPLAINT is that it does not have the suction power for carpets. if i did not already have money invested, i would go back to the kenmore direct drive progressive bagless upright and buy an extended warranty.

Really good.

By 

from Baltimore, MD, United States

Comments about Hoover Platinum Cyclonic Bagless Canister:

With our previous vacuum cleaner dying and a shedding pet in the house, we did our research for a new one. We wanted a bagless canister that's good on pet hair. Within those criteria, Consumer Reports recommended the S3865 highly, and we bought one. We've been very happy with this unit in the few years we've had it now. It works wonderfully on dust and pet hair, it's remarkably quiet, comes apart easily for cleaning, and reassembles solidly. The power switch is very conveniently located. We've had one very minor problem: The cord wind-up mechanism -- that allows the pulled-out cord to stay extended until you step on the take-up pedal -- doesn't work, and the cord draws in leaving only six feet sticking out. As an engineer, I know that this is an unpredictable fluke, a one-off not likely to come up again. It doesn't affect the machine doing what it is supposed to do, and it happened months after we bought it. Advice to the designers: Move the Power Brush light from on the wand connection to the very front of the power brush. It's not well located where it is.

Why get rid of a good thing?

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Hoover Platinum Cyclonic Bagless Canister:

I bought this 5 years ago for over $400 and a part broke. I love it! It worked better than dyson and 4 other vacuums I tried with wool area rugs and my Bernese Mountain dog. They don't have the part and want to replace it. The only other canisters they have are cheap and have bad reviews. When you made a top rated vacuum, according to consumer reports, why would you get rid of it? I have hardwoods throughout 2000 sq foot home with area rugs. I went through 6 vacuums($300-$800 range) in 3 months to find this one.

Hoover S3865 Platinum collection Cannister Vaccum

By 

from Surprise, AZ, United States

Comments about Hoover Platinum Cyclonic Bagless Canister:

I bought this vacuum year ago in a warranty exchange from Hoover. This is one of the best vacuum cleaner I have ever used. Although it is expensive but a good investment better than other brand names. I will recommend tis vacuum if money is not the criteria.

Perfect, no smells

By 

from Atlanta, Georgia, United States

Comments about Hoover Platinum Cyclonic Bagless Canister:

I bought this just about a year ago, it has been the best vacuum I have ever used and owned. It is very awesome, very high suction, no smells, cleans easily, no dust. It comes apart for cleaning well, the filters are easily accessed. I have cats... litter and hair are completely eliminated (until a cat comes into the room and sheds some more).

Comments about Hoover Platinum Cyclonic Bagless Canister:

not great suction, poor maneuvering so it hits my baseboard molding.  Heavy and bulky.  & within 2 yrs of owning it, the motor now does not go on.  I have to take it to a repair place 15 miles from me to get it fixed.  Hoover did not build this one right.

Love This Vacuum!

By 

from Edmonton, AB

Comments about Hoover Platinum Cyclonic Bagless Canister:

I bought this vacuum two and a half years ago, and I've loved it ever since.  I've had no problem with the suction - I have carpets and a long-haired cat, and I've never had to spend a lot of time on any specific area.  The cord is long enough for me to vacuum the entire apartment using only one electrical outlet, and the controls are easy to access (as compared to some of the other models I've used).  It was worth every penny.

Dirtiest Vacuum

By 

from Albany, New York

Comments about Hoover Platinum Cyclonic Bagless Canister:

This vacuum is bulky and doesn't store well. It loses suction by the time you vacuum one room. You have to empty and clean every filter and canister to resume suction. Have your screw driver handy along with a garbage can. YDebris gets caught in the hose, canister compartment and head.You end up getting filthy by the time you are done vacuuming. The vacuum has never worked on the floor. FYI...We don't have pets, wear shoes in the house, and only have area area rugs.

Worst vacuum cleaner EVER

By 

from Ft Collins, CO

Comments about Hoover Platinum Cyclonic Bagless Canister:

I got this model for FREE when my previous Hoover was recalled, and I still feel like I got ripped off. Worst vacuum cleaner EVER! Every single time my husband or I use this thing, we find ourselves discussing at length how much we absolutely hate hate hate it. The retractable cord has never worked, refusing to lock when the cord is out and instead constantly in retract mode, pulling with enough force to unplug the #@$! thing. And the part where the wand attaches to the vacuum part comes apart several times every time I use it. It's fairly easy to cram all the wires back in and jam it all together really hard so it latches, but after 6 months of this, the wires running through this part are frayed and torn. Definitely a fire hazard.
