Summary: I needed a vacuum that would pick up dog hair. This vacuum was the ONLY one the reviewers claimed that it did. IT DOES! I have chow chows and it is so nice to just vacuum up the hair on the first pass! I've never had a vacuum do that. I've tried most brands and all have problems with dog hair.
Pros: picks up dog hair one pass., easy to handle., lightweight.
Summary: Ok so I read all the reviews and was torn....to buy or not to buy. I had a top of the line Hoover years ago and loved it, but it died in a house remodel. Since then I have gone through two others, the most recent a bagless (not Hoover) that only lasted a couple years.
Summary: Obviously this is a very affordable vacuum cleaner. It is very loud. It is heavy and is not that easy to push. However, it cleans well and gets the job done. Unfortunately my son sucked up a sock. It came back out but it was over - it hasn't worked since.
Summary: Initially this vacuum seemed to have great suction. I found it to be very heavy and difficult to push,and maneuver. I had sore muscles even in my legs the day after using it,not to mention quite bit of back pain. The vacuum started to spit up"dust balls" right away , on occasion.
Summary: Love this vacuum. Went from a Bissel for pet hair, which was awful. Read many reviews on this hoover and they were all excellent. It cleans up our pet hair no problem. It propels itself but is light enough to lift up the stairs. This is the perfect vacuum for the price!!!
