Summary: I have had three of these vacuums. I have had others and always go back to this product. I hope they never get rid of it. I still have one of my old ones from 12 years ago. I keep it in my garage for my car. The on board attachments are the best. Fast and easy to use. Better than any LG, DYSON, etc. I have owned these vacuums and gave them to good will. LG is so hard to use (attachments) and the bag less vacuum did not pick up anything. Had no suction.
Summary: So far so good - these reviews would be a lot more useful if they were solicited six months to a year after purchase. Product seems to work pretty well. Self propelled feature is nice. Vacuum is a little heavy but that's probably unavoidable with the self propelled mechanism added to the standard configuration.
Summary: Great suction and pick up. Excellent accessories, especially the pet hair tool works like a charm at getting pet hair up from furniture. I had an expensive Dyson vacuum before my better half killed the motor by sucking up a large screw and this model Hoover works just as well. The only draw back is that it is heavy. However, it works so well that I don't care how much it weighs!
Summary: I hope this vacuum last me 15 years like my last canister Hoover. I decided on an upright this time because of the wind tunnel and self-propelled features. While this vacuum is heavy, the self-propelled feature takes the work out of it, so I hope that part lasts. The hand-held pet hair feature works wonderful on the sofa and chairs. Again, I just hope the self-propelled feature keeps working, otherwise it will be heavy to push.
