This is my first experience owning a Hoover vacuum cleaner. For my comprehensive review, I will compare the Hoover Wind Tunnel Max Steerable Upright Vacuum UH72450 head to head with the current one I own which is a Dyson DC25 Ball All-Floors Upright Vacuum Cleaner. The Dyson DC25 has great suction power and the cyclonic technology maintains its no-loss suction. Upon opening the box, the Hoover Wind Tunnel Max needed minimal assembly, the 2-in-one crevice tool attachments goes into the slot and the handle bar/extension wand goes into a slot in the main vacuum unit and you are ready to use it. The vacuum unit is accented with green on mainly dark gray color and the turbo cleaning tool comes standard with the attachments. My thoughts (as compared to the Dyson DC25 All Floors): DESIGN: the Hoover Wind Tunnel Max Steerable Upright Vacuum UH72450 sports a similar modern design just like the Dyson DC25 All Floors MINUS the ball. In place of the ball is a pivoting hinge where all the twisting and turning is performed in the unit. Both vacuum cleaners are based on the Cyclonic Technology which was pioneered by Dyson and this technology is suppose to maintain a no-loss of suction in your vacuum cleaner. It is both bagless with a dirt cup/dust bin but Hoover's has a much larger capacity, around 25 percent larger than Dyson's. A larger capacity dirt cup translates to less emptying and provides longer cleaning time. Both have a clear, transparent nozzle/cleaning head where you can see the rolling of the brushes. This is very useful where you can visually inspect if the brush has a lot of debris entanglements without turning the unit over. The Hoover which weighs less than 15.6 lbs is a tad lighter than the Dyson DC25 which weighs just over 16 lbs. MANEUVERABILITY/STEERABILITY: this is where things start taking off for the Hoover. Although Dyson "invented" the ball design where the vacuum's directional path can be changed with a simple twist of your wrist, Hoover created a smooth pivoting hinge where swiveling and turning is SIGNIFICANTLY easier and smoother compared to Dyson's ball concept. There is more fluidity in motion with the Hoover in going over your vacuuming path. And Hoover's weight-to-steering ratio compensates for any kind of over-steering as you twist and turn, push and pull the vacuum cleaner. Since the Hoover doesn't have a ball, it is able to reach deeper in tight places with no interference. Hoover has a no brainer advantage when it comes to the vacuum's reach and maneuverability. SUCTION POWER: this is where the WOW factor kicks in. The Hoover Wind Tunnel Max Steerable Upright Vacuum UH72450 provides a lot of power despite being light. My rough estimates conclude that the Hoover has at least 30-40 percent more suction power compared to the Dyson. I can attest to this fact when vacuuming, the Hoover sometimes SUCKS THE CARPET IN! And I am talking about permanently placed carpets just like the ones in your living room or bedroom. Despite its light weight and this particular Hoover vacuum is geared towards ordinary household use, it gives out industrial strength suction power. Hands down, the Hoover Wind Tunnel Max Steerable Upright Vacuum UH72450 beats the Dyson DC25 All Floors in the suction department. And just like the Dyson, it is totally sealed, no dust coming out from the unit. You can tell just by sniffing: there are no "dust-smell" that lingers in the air right after using the Hoover. FUNCTIONALITY: there is an air valve dial in the Hoover Wind Tunnel Max Steerable Upright Vacuum UH72450 where you can toggle or re-direct suction power from floor to hose. This is a new feature I have seen in a vacuum cleaner and once this feature is engaged, it gives you the ability to concentrate suction strength to the hose, giving an extra kick for those tight in-between cleanings. MAINTENANCE: both the Hoover and the Dyson are bagless, equipped with a dirt cup/dust bin. After your vacuuming chore, simply detach the dirt cup/dust bin and press a button to release all the accumulated dirt. Hoover's dirt cup is larger than the Dyson's. Both has a lifetime washable HEPA filter in it and a pre-motor filter. Though the claims of "lifetime" are a bit of an overkill, most of us know that filters degrade over time and replacing it would be more of a necessity to keep the vacuum cleaner running at its optimum efficiency. Hoover's owner's manual makes a light reference to cleaning the dirt cup by brushing it down with the dusting tool. This is basically the same with the Dyson. But as with the Dyson, Hoover's dirt cup assembly, including the cyclones inside it are made of high-impact plastic materials. After carefully examining it and since Hoover already makes mention in the owner's manual that this can be disassembled, cleaning it under running water totally dislodges any kind of debris accumulation in the dirt cup assembly. All that needs to be done is to let it drip and totally dry it before attaching it back to the main unit. Now, you have a totally clean dirt cup/dust bin, ready to tackle another vacuuming chore. Both units has a nozzle/cleaning head that is transparent, you can visually inspect the roll brush for debris entanglements without turning the vacuum cleaner over. If the roll brush does have a lot of debris entanglements, both Hoover and Dyson made it easy for the consumer to clean it out. Just turn over the vacuum unit on its underside, loosen a few screws, take the roll brush out and clean it, insert it back, tighten the screws and you have clean roll brush. It is easier to take out Dyson's roll brush compared to Hoover's. Dyson's roll brush can be taken out by just loosening one screw and taking the whole roll brush out while in the Hoover, you have to loosen six screws and the roll brush is attached to a belt that makes the brush rotate. You have to detach the belt before you can take the brush out for any kind of cleaning and put it back in the same manner you took it out. It may be complicated at first glance with all the screws and the belt detachment but you get the hang of it fairly quickly. Many vacuum unit nowadays are manufactured to enable owners do their basic maintenance work to keep the unit functioning properly. Not including motor problems which needs to be serviced by a certified technician, being able to do your own basic maintenance work is cost-saving in the long run. CONCLUSION: before getting the chance of owning the Hoover Wind Tunnel Max Steerable Upright Vacuum UH72450, I was very much impressed with my Dyson DC25's suction power. I've owned a couple of vacuum cleaners before and they never got close to Dyson's performance of maneuverability and suction power. This particular Hoover vacuum cleaner just changed that belief. I love how easily you can maneuver the Hoover and the suction power just gives you that deep cleaning with an extra kick. In this head-to-head comparison, the Dyson DC25 just doesn't cut it if we solely base this review on maneuverability and suction power alone. Although Dyson pioneered the ball, the twist steering concept and the Cyclonic Technology, I just can't help but be awed by the suction power and steerability of the Hoover Wind Tunnel Max Steerable Upright Vacuum UH72450. Hoover got that specific aspect of this comparison right down to pat. Hoover's hose is light, bendable and very easy to manage while Dyson's hose is very stiff. Comparing the hoses between these two brands is like night and day. This is one area where the convenience part of the vacuum was well thought out by Hoover. Another thing worth noting is Hoover's power cord is longer than the Dyson's by 5 feet and the Turbo Tool comes standard with the Hoover where it is an option in the Dyson DC25. Warranty is the same for a new unit which is 5 years. If price is a major consideration, a brand new Hoover Wind Tunnel Max Steerable Upright Vacuum UH72450 is 50 percent less expensive than a brand new Dyson DC25 All Floors. WISHFUL THINKING (if the folks at Hoover are reading this): In my opinion (and this is strictly my opinion ONLY), this would have been the best vacuum cleaner ever if they had put headlights on it. After everything's been said, I am now a proud owner of a Hoover!

I just purchased this vacuum with high expectations.  It work great on my dining room area rug which has a short loose pile.  Then I tried it on my living room area rug, which as a dense low pile.  Now, you would think I would be thrilled with the strength of the suction, but the suction was so strong, it clung to the carpet.  I had to put my full strength against it to get it to move.  I was wrestling with the vacuum to get it to move.  There is no rug height adjustment, & the call I placed to Hoover was no help.  I told the customer service rep. that it looks like it will have to go back. She agreed.  I bought this vacuum, because the ads made it looks so easy.  It isn't.  Also, there is no light on the front.

Defective

By 

from Pomona, CA, United States

Comments about Hoover Air Steerable Bagless Upright Vacuum:

The first time I used it, the rollers would not come on. I thought I did something wrong but half way into it, they turned on then turned back off on their own. After taking it apart, checking the belt and rollers (on a NEW machine), I tried again and nothing. A few days later, I tried again. This time, they turned on and I vacuumed 1.5 rooms before the rollers turned off again. I checked the belt again, cleaned the rollers- this time some debris was caught, but the rollers would not come on. I called Hoover for repair and it is now in the shop after two sorry attempts at use getting the board and motor replaced. They were both burned out? How is this possible?- Either I got the ONE vacuum that was defective or this machine, that was not cheap, isn't any good. The next step is to return it if it doesn't work after getting fixed.

I like it, but it fills up quickly

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Hoover Air Steerable Bagless Upright Vacuum:

Is it because our floors were dirtier than we realized? Or because it is so easy to use it makes vacuuming less of a chore and we do it more frequently ? Not sure but it does seem to reach the fill line quickly and not evenly in the canister. So one side will be completely full and the other side almost empty....

        I love the job that this cleaner does. My carpets look brand new. I find that the cleaner handles very well. I am satisfied with my purchase. I can only find fault in that it appears to be a little heavy for me to push. This was one of the lightest weight cleaners I could find as the problem may be that my carpet is a thick weave

        Not a great system for shedding pets

        By 

        from Cincinnati, OH, United States

        Comments about Hoover Air Steerable Bagless Upright Vacuum:

        We bought this vaccuum after our Dyson dc07 finally died. While it does pick up pet hair fairly well, you have to empty and clean the system out after every use. The upper filters continue to clog very quickly with hair and reduces the airflow causing the system to over heat after using for 10 minutes and causing a thermal shutdown. I wish we had bought another Dyson. The price was attractive and it does clean well for 10 minutes at a time.

        Very difficult to push around short pile rugs

        By 

        from San Jose, CA, United States

        Comments about Hoover Air Steerable Bagless Upright Vacuum:

        We've had this vacuum about 7 months and have disliked using it since the day we bought it. We have several short pile rugs which should be easy to manage with any vacuum. The suction is so great that it literally sticks to the rug, and requires a significant amount of force to push it along. We've taken to pulling rather than pushing (which is easier), but we should never have had to resort to this. The other issue we have is that the vacuum barely stands up on its own. Any slight pressure and it will fall over, which has left a few minor gashes in our hardwood floors. All in all, this is a very poorly designed product, and makes me wonder what the Hoover engineers have been up to.
