Nice Simple Vacuum. Read Review if you need a hose that fits.
3 May 2013
Summary: As many others have said, this is a no frills vacuum, but one that has good suction and gets the job done. It does an excellent job cleaning carpets and does well on hardwood floors too. I have not experienced any scratching or scuffing of the hardwood floors from the beater bar as some people have mentioned. The vacuum is loud, but that's the price you pay for a large motor and thin (light weight) plastic housing.
Summary: This is a great little lightweight vacuum. It's perfect for little messes around the house especially if you have no pets and no children. I did not give it 5 stars because I was a bit surprised that it didn't come with a hose and there's a slot for one. You'd think you'd at least get that and one tool, but no...just the vacuum. Also, the description states that the color is green, and it's not. You get the color you see in the pictures with that rather ugly orange cord.
Summary: I have had hoovers forever! I have a commercial cleaning service and love this vac. Easy to fix and handle. One problem though is that their commercial line does not last as long as their regular line which is not made anymore. The commercial motors go bad really fast. I have about 5 or 6 commercial vac bodies that need a motor. My regular ones never had motor issues. And they say you pay more for the commercial because it is stronger and lasts. Not true :(.
Summary: This vacuum sucks! ...just like it's supposed to. It's a no-frills basic floor cleaner that does what's expected of it. It's light weight, has no tools or ability to connect to tools, so an ability to clean edges, ceiling fans, etc, doesn't apply here. We use it on all carpeted areas as well as area rugs on the hardwood floor and it does a really good job - much better than the heavy Windtunnel it replaces. We have two dogs and it seems to do a great job with hair.
Summary: I've had it for about a month only but I can tell it does the job. It does an excellent job. If you want a vacuum to clean your carpet well this does the job. Period. Picks up everything that is supposed to. It is light. Before this one I had a horrible vacuum. One of those that pretend to do a lot of things (hose for windows, etc) but do not do anything right. The only disavantage I found was the power cable. It does not have a very stable anchor.
Summary: I wanted to replace our older, heavier upright vacuum (that produced bad smells with every use) with something lightweight and good for pet hair, but also good for both carpet AND wood floors. Consumer Reports liked several different Hoover models, but after reading a bunch of other reviews as well, I chose this one. Pros: 1. 48% off retail price - so you get commercial-grade power for consumer-level price ($119); 2.
Summary: As someone else said this is the 1st real vacuum cleaner I have purchased. I had multiple cheaper bagless before. I wanted something with HEPA filtering options. HEPA bags look to be cheaper even if you have to replace one a month vs replacing HEPA filters every 1-3 months. I am dealing with a mite (and other pest issues). The last vacuum I had a non HEPA washable filter. I was using bug killing powder (Diatomaceous earth).
Summary: I tried lots of vaccums ,this one is different, it has enough power to make my carpets real clean, although there are some down sides to that: the cord is orange which is a very sharp color for a vaccume,it doesn.t have accessories to clean the corners and makes a lot of noise, but with all of these minor negative points , i would still buy it one more time....
You can leave this out in the rain...but I don't recommend it!

Summary: I purchased this vacuum to use for resort cleaning at the beach. I have several places that I work and the vacuums are never reliable. I thought this would do the trick. With the first use at home for the "kick-ff" I proceeded to vacuum up fresh puppy poop and had a time getting it off the beater bar and surrounding areas and the smell was not too good. There was no residue being left behind so I decided to continue using. I changed the bag and went my way.
