Summary: My wife bought this model # U6485900 Hoover Vacuum 15 years ago. Finally, the on / off switch broke and instead of fixing it, because of it's age, we decided to replace it with the same Model. We found it to be a great vacuum. The best feature - Self-Propelled. Even though most of the reviews have been positive, , my wife and I can't understand some of the negative comments.
Summary: my last WindTunnel lasted 15 years and cleaned better than my $1500 Kirby. This one cleans at least as well..great suction!..on board tools sometimes fall, but these are minor problems that can be fixed ( hang a bag over the handle to store tools )..If it lasts as long, I'm thrilled.
Summary: The model that this unit replaced had been worked very hard for several years, and finally wore out. When we found that this model was still available, we ordered it. We tried it out, and as a surprise to us, not only was the original quality still there, they had even managed to make improvements on what we had considered the best vacuum we had ever had. Yes, we love it and would happily recommend it to others. The self-propelled feature is a major plus.
Summary: I have had a couple of Hoover WindTunnel vacuum cleaners for both my home and my retail business in the past and have been very satisfied with the bang I got for my buck. I decided to try a different brand (more expensive) last time and regretted it almost immediately. The other brand lasted only about 4 months in a house full of girls with long hair! This is my first experience with the self-propelled model and I LOVE this feature!
Summary: I own two Hoover Wind Tunnel vacuums and was so happy to see one with a bag. It definitely lives up to the Hoover brand and quality. Love the cleaning power and suction. Most of all just happy there is a bag since I feel emptying a dirty cup is just not clean. Thanks Hoover for a nice bagged vacuum. I have not stopped vacuuming since I received it. Also it arrived as promised when I ordered online.
Summary: This is the third U6485900 model Hoover Wind Tunnel purchased for the State Attorney's office. It is an excellent vacuum cleaner for the low pile carpeting in our offices. The wand and attachments work very well too. Don't forget to purchase the Y/Z vacuum cleaner bags and extra hepa filters at the very beginning so you have them on hand.
Summary: This is our second unit the first one we bought 20 years ago and is still working. We wanted a second unit for upstairs. They have made nice improvements the new unit uses the same bag and drive belt. I would definitely buy a unit that has a bag to throw away and avoid the mess and dust of cleaning a bag less model.
