Summary: Had a bagless Hoover. Worked okay I guess, but lacked a headlight and after less than three years use it would simply stop running - a short in the switch or overheating in the motor - was not worth having repaired.
Summary: Overall this vac does a good job. I have owned several Hoover Vacs in the past and trust the brand. It is very light (in the past I have owned the self-driven) and questioned perhaps I should have bought that model again. But I am very please with how easy this one is to navigate.
Summary: Boy, does this thing suck ! This is a good vacuum cleaner. Grooms my carpet nicely. Strong suction. One thing though, I have 2 cats and they shed a fair amount. The upholstery cleaner attachment starts off fine but soon stops because the fur gets wound around the brush spool and stops the spinning...
Summary: After owning numerous brands of Vacuum cleaners, this is by far the best I have owned to date. 99% of my previous cleaners were not bagged, and with the ease and cleanliness of this bagged vacuum, I will never go back.
