Product Details

Hoover WindTunnel Air Bagless Canister Vacuum, Model SH40070

The Hoover® Air™ Canister Vacuum will make you believe performance comes in all sizes. Powered by WindTunnel® 3 Technology, the Air™ canister is lightweight, steerable and versatile for all your multi-floor surfaces.

    Up to 11 feet of cleaning reach with wand and tool
    • Telescoping Extension Wand

    I waited almost a month for this vacuum to available for sale. I saw it over a year ago in England as a "Vax", but Europeans don't have power nozzles. This vacuum actually uses a combination of Shark single cyclone dirt separation in the main canister - and Dyson multi cyclonic separation for the fine dust. VERY efficient separation, keeps the pre-motor filter almost spotless. The power nozzle deep cleans very well, the only drawback (and it's slight) is that long cat hair tends to wrap around the brush roller. IF you'll make the effort to keep the brush bar clean before putting it away EACH TIME, you'll never have a problem with it. It empties very easily, and the lower bin's 'cup design' means very little flying dust. You can empty it in the house if you wish. The bare floor brush is vastly improved from the Platinum Edition's brush, it cleans in one stroke. The dusting tool/combination brush works OK, but full size attachments are getting harder to come by these days. Still, it performs well and dust the register vents with ease. The hose swivels at the handle end, and I LOVE the fact there's no circuit boards in the hose handle. The telescopic wand is now steel, and very sturdy. This is a light, compact vacuum. If you have a large carpeted area, you'll probably need to empty it during your cleaning. As easy as that is, you shouldn't mind. I love that the power nozzle can be placed on the end of the hose, making cleaning my sofa easy, and it removes my border collie's hair in one pass. Overall, very good machine. Wish the cord was longer, but we can't have everything.

    I bought this vacuum cleaner three weeks ago. Overall I am satisfied, it is lightweight, but I could use a longer cord, I have to unplug and plug for each room (I own three bedroom house). Also emptying the dust container is very awkward, the bottom lid does not open all the way so I have to actually pull the dirt out when I want to empty it completely and get dirty every time I am cleaning it. Wheels do not move very easily, have to pull hard.

    Not worth the money!

    By 

    from Pittsburgh, PA, United States

    Comments about Hoover WindTunnel Air Bagless Canister Vacuum:

    I bought this vacuum at Target in June 2014, I have had it for less than a year and have only used it less than 10 times. I have mostly hardwood floors so this was to be strictly for the bedrooms with carpet. The motor completely died on the vacuum. It will not even start. I tried cleaning it all out and it still will not start. This product is not worth the money I spent. I paid more hoping for a good canister vacuum to last me at 3 years and I got less than a year out of it. I am very upset and will never buy another Hoover again.

    Comments about Hoover WindTunnel Air Bagless Canister Vacuum:

    This vacuum cleaner is a piece of junk! It only works for a very short time before overheating and stopping. It has no suction when it does work. The buttons to push to separate the wands are hard to push. The accessories don't work. The filters clog up immediately. Did I mention it has no suction!!!! IT has no suction!!! It does not Vacuum!!! What a piece of junk. DO NOT BUY!!!!

    Unfair reviews - great vac for the price

    By 

    from Ottawa, ON, Canada

    Comments about Hoover WindTunnel Air Bagless Canister Vacuum:

    I've had this vac for over a year and still love it. However, I can see why some people have run into issues because without regular cleaning it will start to run hot. For the first few months I thought was the best thing ever, then it started to lose suction. However, I found that the top main filter was clogged and needed a wash, which I did and everything was back to normal. To keep this machine running like new, all you have to do is empty both the dirt catcher AND the red baffle inside it after EVERY session. It takes two seconds and the parts are designed to be removed easily to allow this. Every couple months, remove and rinse the filter which you can do under a warm tap. I came to Hoover.com to find a replacement HEPA filter, which is a second filter in the wheel assembly, which was clogged with very fine dust. As I say, mine's over a year old and I just replaced it for the first time... Now it's running like the day I bought it. Recommended.

    Great suction -WHEN NOT CLOGGED!

    By 

    from New York, NY, United States

    Comments about Hoover WindTunnel Air Bagless Canister Vacuum:

    When I first got this vacuum I was amazed at the suction and how much it picked up. After a few months (and cleaning the way it was recommended) I found I spent more time unclogging all sorts of areas of the vacuum. 5 months after I bought it the head of the vacuum broke (the connection area where the pole goes in) I mean it just cracked! I went online to find out about warranty and nothing! So to replace the head I would have to pay almost 75% of what I paid for the vacuum itself!! Then the filter in the wheel base cracked and makes this awful whistle when its on. Oh and let me not forget to mention that it over heats sometimes. I have read a lot of reviews on this and I am so sorry that I purchased it.

    Not for long hair

    By 

    from MA

    Comments about Hoover WindTunnel Air Bagless Canister Vacuum:

    I was given this vacuum as a Christmas present. It cleans our carpets GREAT. The only problem is that after EVERY use I need to take it apart and cut all the hair from the rotating brush and from inside the "red" part of the canister, otherwise it starts to lose suction and smells like it is burning. We have girls with long hair, and really thought the problem would get better after all the "old" hair was removed; its not, and this is too much work to do every week.

    Good suction

    By 

    from Roanoke, VA, United States

    Comments about Hoover WindTunnel Air Bagless Canister Vacuum:

    I have used our new Hoover 4 times now on tile, laminate, sofa cushions & throw rugs. I do wish it would roll better on floors & I wish the hose would swivel. The little side wheels on the hardwood floor attachment pick up my long hair, cat hair & clump up but other than that it is fine. it's light weight, the handle fits my hand fine & operates smoothly. I found I did have to put the attachment on the lowest setting for throw rugs as it eats them up. Good suction! I don't care for the way of dumping the container but I knew that when purchasing. If I cover with a plastic bag it's alright. Instructions were very clear. I like the cord return especially with the markings for the limit to extend. I also like having the large plug as with arthritis it makes it easier to remove from the wall socket. This was where my 20 yr old Rainbow vacuum broke. I do miss my Rainbow but the price was to high to purchase another.

    Motor dead already??

    Comments about Hoover WindTunnel Air Bagless Canister Vacuum:

    I bought this vacuum about 1 month ago and was really happy with it at first but 1 month in and already having issues with the motor. Vacuum will turn on but then shuts down. Can't find clogs and the receptacle is empty. I'm at a loss, both on how to fix it and for the money spent!

    Gets the job done!

    By 

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Hoover WindTunnel Air Bagless Canister Vacuum:

    The windtunnel 3 gets the job done perfectly. I have used my unit 4 times and I am very impressed. Just one suggestion. I wish that the little rollers in the cleaning head were removable for cleaning. When hair gets caught in the roller shaft the rollers won't turn and the hair gets wrapped around the shaft very tight. Even with this little drawback I still give this unit a perfect excellent rating.

    RETURNING THIS FOR A REFUND

    By 

    from Toronto, ON, Canada

    Comments about Hoover WindTunnel Air Bagless Canister Vacuum:

    Saw this on sale for $199 without looking at reviews. Scared to even open the box after finding out about over heating issues. There's quite a lot of bad reviews about it. Will be returning it first thing tomorrow and will purchase Dyson instead.

    After the second or third time running this vacuum it overheated and won't turn on - my wife was vacuuming for less than 5 minutes, I was in the room.
