Excerpt: My old Hoover Concept One I ran into the ground vacuuming farm dirt and the fall-out from raising six kids. For two years, I used a light upright belonging to my daughter. Last month I bought the Windtunnel, and I could not believe how quickly I filled the dirt cup!
Excerpt: We had a 15 year old Rainbow, witch I hated but the cost of it couldn't just throw it out, until I told the G/F it had to go. So I was looking for about a month before we brought this one, Now I'm happy, happy happy.
Excerpt: When the sweeper arrived it only required one screw to complete assembly. I immediately started sweeping the carpet and was amazed at how easy it was to operate. It seemed light and glided over the carpet and what good suction it had!
Excerpt: I bought the Hoover WindTunnel 2 on a neighbors recommendation and I'm glad I did. I never realized how much dust and dirt I was not picking up with my old vacuum. I'M GLAD I BOUGHT THIS ONE.....
Excerpt: I bought this vacuum because of the rave reviews and needless to say was disappointed from the beginning. I purchased this 3 days ago, put it together and the power switch did not work!!l So, I called the 1 800 number and am told to go on the Hoover website.
Excerpt: This started out as a wonderful machine but has lost suction over the past 8 months and now does not have suction at all.....scrapes up some stuff off of the carpet then spits it back out elsewhere causing more messes and work...
Summary: I bought this vacuum after reading reviews in Consumer Reports. I'm very happy with the purchase. I saw complaints in other reviews that the hose is too short, and it's true--this is the main drawback, but it's not enough for me to take away a star.
