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.

Very nice

By 

from Illinois

Comments about Hoover WindTunnel Air Bagless Canister Vacuum:

I am finding this canister very nice. It has very good suction, a very strong motor yet still light enough to be versatile and convenient. I have only had it for a little over a month, but actually like vacuuming with it. I have all hard flooring ( wood and ceramic) so I can't give an opinion as to its use on carpet but on my surfaces it is great. If your design and development department would like suggestions, these are mine. 1. The multi-tool holder up on the handle doesn't hold the tool tight and it falls off easily. I would suggest making the multi-tool so that it will park in the slot down on the machine where the power nozzle parks. 2. The on/off button might be more easily identified if it was a different color (not the same as the cord return button. It is easy to hit the cord return button instead of the off button by mistake). Maybe make it the same color as the red on the Hoover logo. 3. A longer cord as has been suggested would be nice. 4. As nice as the multi-tool is, an additional/optional longer crevices tool would be very nice for those of us who use the tool to clean the car.

Unhappy customer

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Hoover WindTunnel Air Bagless Canister Vacuum:

I was very excited to get another Hoover canister. I use to have SH40060 model and loved it. It had a great suction. I was very upset when I didn't see it anymore. So I purchased this canister instead. I am very unhappy. It is Very cheaply made! The hose ripped at the top only after a few months of use. I wanted to order a replacement but it comes out cheaper to just to buy a new canister all in its self. Very unsatisfied!

first vacuum trial today

By 

from Arkansas, United States

Comments about Hoover WindTunnel Air Bagless Canister Vacuum:

This is an additional vacuum for under beds and dressers, etc. I have a Shark small vac which works great and has a 20+ foot cord. But in the first bedroom - a double sized kids room - 14 x 14...a little problem after another. The right wheel with the filter will not stay on. The exhaust air bursts out there and any little bump will release the filter and cap. I finally just vacuumed without it....I know, dust into the air, but the cup caught the hair and carpet lint. Also when I was finished, the bucket was really full and I discovered as many others have, if you carry the apparatus by the top handle it doesn't take much for that handle to come off and your bucket of lint and dirt is on the floor. I swept it up and wheeled the vacuum to the kitchen where I could mop if it happened again. That 'bowl' shaped bottom is a bad design. It doesn't empty, even if you shake the the canister. You have to tilt it over and over to empty it. When I finished with the hall, and was emptying again, I realized that the red cyclonic filter had lint and long hair wrapped around it inside a plastic casing. I found that the instruction booklet has pictures of a past model and had to call HELP to figure out how to work the red filter loose. A very nice lady answered 13 minutes later and with help from her materials, we figured it out. It wasn't hard, the models were just slightly different and confusing. So short cord. loose top handle. bucket that doesn't really empty. wheel filter that pops free. HOT. Yes, hot to the touch. PRO: I need to clean under beds. Kids are kids. A cat is a cat and is going to hide there on stormy days. I will tape the loose parts together and use it in the bedrooms only. But I'm using the Shark lightweight upright for the rest of the house. Recommendation: How badly do you need to get under furniture? That's what this is good for. Yes Minus rating.

Big disappointment

By 

from Montreal, QC, Canada

Comments about Hoover WindTunnel Air Bagless Canister Vacuum:

Bought this vacuum in late 2013. Worked great for the first several months. But it's been a cascade of maintenance and trouble ever since. Inexplicable clogs, accessories breaking, and now a complete shutdown of the motor. There's nothing extraordinary about what we're doing with this vacuum--no pets, no use outside our home, weekly use at most. Not impressive.

Not worth it

By 

from British Columbia, Canada

Comments about Hoover WindTunnel Air Bagless Canister Vacuum:

We bought this vacuum a Month ago. The cord barely has enough length to vacuum two rooms I have to keep unplugging and plugging it back in to change rooms. Also the bristles seems to just push the dirt away when vacuuming hardwood you have to lift the attachment and place it right over the visible dirt in order to suction it up. My honest opinion it's a terrible vacuum and no where near worth the price.

Stopped working.

By 

from Los Angeles, CA, United States

Comments about Hoover WindTunnel Air Bagless Canister Vacuum:

I don't know if it overheated but it just stopped working. I keep it very clean. There are no clogs. I went ahead and cleaned all the filters (and thoroughly rinsed the dirt cup filter). Pulled out the cord and let it sit for 24 hours. Still won't work. I don't even use it that often.

Comments about Hoover WindTunnel Air Bagless Canister Vacuum:

Purchased this a few weeks ago and have put it to good use, Overall it's a great vacuum. Suction is fantastic and it easily goes from my hardwood floors to rugs to the carpeted stairs. The only draw backs are the cord length, I need to switch outlets to make it down the stairs (few inches!), and the attachment tool, which keeps falling off its little spot and driving me nuts.

Disappointing

By

Verified Buyer

Comments about Hoover WindTunnel Air Bagless Canister Vacuum:

I wish this was a better machine. It works well~~while it works! But it is fairly high-maintenance to care for the HEPA filter. Do not make the mistake of vacuuming too much of an area for too long a time, as the motor will overheat and simply QUIT, never to run again. After many uses, no matter how clean you keep it, it will emit a stink of dust, a foul smell, when you turn it on. But it does do a fantastic job of picking up dust & dirt invisible to the human eye, both smooth & carpeted surfaces (we have tile, hardwood, berber carpet).

Never had a great vacuum like this! Never going cheap again

By 

from NY

Comments about Hoover WindTunnel Air Bagless Canister Vacuum:

Never figured a vacuum could clean this well. When I started it the first time, I was amazed at how powerful the suction was. Additionally, the rotor is very well designed - it almost sucks the head to the carpet and pulls it forward. I had used another vacuum recently on carpet, but this vacuum picked up 10x more tiny dust particles the other one never could reach. I live in a small apartment - this vacuum breaks down into its individual components so you can stuff it in any closet area.

worst vacuum ever

By 

from Montréal, QC, Canada

Comments about Hoover WindTunnel Air Bagless Canister Vacuum:

I have this vacuum for a year or less and the motor gets really hot and the vacuum suddenly stops after less than 10 min operating. It is a cheap vacuum and the quality goes with it. Never again, ill buy a Hoover vacuum again. Ive learned my lesson.
