Summary: I bought this product because of the Hoover name and the expectation that because it was advertised as "commercial" it would last. I was willing to pay the additional price expecting excellent performance. My disappointment can not be stated more emphatically! Within a week the light that let you know if you were on floor or carpet stopped working.
Summary: A remake of a classic that served me well for 30 years. Great for cleanup after small repairs. Very portable, but still matches a canister for suction. Collapsible hose is not an improvement. Motor has same amp rating, but smaller turbine than before. Cord is now too long to store wrapped around handle, also not an improvement. The older version was better and I would have paid a premium to get it.
Summary: I purchased this Hoover to replace my Shark VX3 V1950 Sweeper. The Sharks battery life was less than expected and the wheel broke off but during it's life span it was a work horse and cleaned significantly better than this Hoover toy they are trying to sell us as "Commercial" I have used this item 2 and it sits in the corner. I can do a better job with my hand vac. I am very dissatisfied with this product.
Summary: I don't understand all the good reviews for this sweeper, makes me wonder if people read descriptions. It says the hood is made of galvanized steel and it's not, is made of flimsy plastic and that it has four corner brushes and it doesn't, it has just one skimpy row in the front with no corner brushes anywhere. It's very weak and it doesn't pick up anything. What you receive is the item you see in the picture but it doesn't match the description.
Summary: I chose this sweeper because of the Hoover name. So far I'm happy. It glides across the floor and picks up everything. so quite I can sweep while husbands sleeps. My only disappointment was, I thought it had the side brushes but alas it does not. I guess i looked at so many I got them mixed up. But it does a GREAT job without them. And I believe I would buy this again. And I will tell all my friends about it.
