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.

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.

Gets really hot

By 

from California, United States

Comments about Hoover WindTunnel Air Bagless Canister Vacuum:

I bought this about a month ago and I do like that it is light weight and easy to carry around but it gets really hot around the wheel area where the hepa filter is. I even took the filter off thinking it was dirty or something but it wasnt. Now after hearing a weird noise my husband cleaned out the hose and everything thinking there was a clog I was vacuuming and all of a sudden the main part of the vacuum stopped working but the attachment was still running and it was super hot. I turned it off and hope it turns on when the motor cools off.

Terribly Disappointed

By 

from Montreal, Quebec, Canada

Comments about Hoover WindTunnel Air Bagless Canister Vacuum:

I own this vacuum for close to a year. The main problem is that there is a small red piece in the center of the vacuum, that acts as a filter I suppose. It has a very small area with holes that allows air flow. This constantly gets clogged especially with hair or fur causing the machine to over head. I find sometimes I have to clean the machine 3 times if I am vacuuming the whole house. The canister will not be full but this piece will be covered with dust or hair. Besides the main problem the attachment pieces are very poor quality have broken. I do NOT recommend this product.

Motor broke in 3 months from regular use

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Hoover WindTunnel Air Bagless Canister Vacuum:

Purchased this to vacuum sales floor of small apparel boutique. After 3 months the motor stopped functioning and I had to take it to be repaired. Made the mistake of chit chatting with the repairman about the store, and he said since it was used anywhere outside of the home that the warranty is void. I read the warranty, and it says "This Warranty does not cover: use of the product in a commercial operation (such as maid, janitorial and equipment rental services)". I am not a janitorial service, I'm using a vacuum for its intended purpose and it just so happens to be in a clothing boutique instead of my home. Very disappointed by Hoover's product and their warranty. I'll stick to Dyson the next time I need to buy a vacuum. The Dyson canister vacuum I have in my other store has worked wonderfully without issue for years!

A solid Vacuum with great suction and ease of use.

By 

from Edmonton, AB

Comments about Hoover WindTunnel Air Bagless Canister Vacuum:

We've had this vacuum for two years don't see any reason why we would look to replace it in the near future. Its reasonably light, moves around easy enough, and has great suction. Its not super quiet, and it does let off a bit of heat, but it does a really great job picking up alot of dust and dirt. I do wish the wind up cord was a bit longer (6 feet or so), and that the hose was a few feet longer for stairs. Its a great vacuum, and I think alot of the negative reviews are from people with higher expectations regarding maintenance. Nothing is maintenance free, and certainly not a vacuum at this price range. The filters need to be washed on a regular basis, and after alot of heavy usage, it is best to replace the filters. We replaced them after two years of use, and its like brand new again with suction. Don't let those negative ratings worry you, as long as you are willing to spend 5 to 10 minutes the odd time to make sure its running tip top. I'll be buying a few extra filters now just incase they change the style.

overheating and clogging up

By 

from Nova Scotia, Canada

Comments about Hoover WindTunnel Air Bagless Canister Vacuum:

I purchased this machine 9 months ago. Worked fine for the first few months and I always emptied the canister after each use. Then it started to clog up and get very warm and stop. I took it apart and thoroughly cleaned every part of it so it was like new but still clogs after about five minutes and then overheats and shuts off. The filter is clean and no clogs in the hose and the canister is almost empty, so what gives. This is very frustrating. Wish I had read the reviews first. I will go back to a Kenmore.
