Summary: This is the heaviest vacuum I've ever seen. It is hard to lift. It is hard to push. We have new thick carpet and even on the highest setting it does not move across the carpet. It takes two hands and all my force to push it.
Summary: The self-propelled feature is the best feature of this vac. However, the vac's wider base is fine if cleaning long expanses but difficult maneuvering around furniture. The cord windup is cumbersome.
Summary: This is an awesome and dependable vacuum. The filtration system is the best.. It is powerful and easy to use. Only drawback - (with most of the better vacuums) is that it is pretty heavy and you don't want to have to carry it up and down the stairs... Love it.
Summary: Haven't had it long enough to determine how it will hold up. But for two weeks has been giving excellent results. The bag was the essential reason for selecting this vacuum. The others, with hepa filters, still had to be emptied and the dust particles were causing problems. So far so good
Summary: We had the same Hoover self propelled vacuum for 15 years with only having to replace the brush drive belt twice. This vacuum works as well and the wife seems to think it has better suction than her older one. She likes the fact it will fit under the beds and is so easy to maneuver.
Summary: After eight great years , I am replacing my Hoover wind tunnel bagless self propelled upright with a bagged model . Same super pickup and edge cleaning , but neater with bags . I am handicapped and self propelled is important to me and works great . Outstanding price too !
