Summary: I read the reviews and was excited to get it however, I had to order it on line and when I finally got it almost a week later, there were 2 parts missing. I returned it to the store and was told I had to reorder it on line. Yes, another week of waiting on a new vacuum. Frustrated, I looked all over San Antonio and was unable to find this vacuum and they were sold out on line. I settled for an alternate Hoover vacuum.
Summary: This is the 3rd Hoover vacuum I purchased for Christmas. This one is used mainly on the 2nd floor and needed to easily switch from carpet to floor. This one does that and is also powerful enough to get the carpeting clean. It is lightweight enough for me to easily use.
Summary: This was purchased for our office and we chose this brand because of its reputation and dependability. Have a self propelled Hoover at home and wouldn't trade it. The only thing that I would change would be to add another piece of tubing for 2 so that it would extent the hose further.
Summary: My house is majority hardwood flooring and I have 5 cats that shed a lot so I needed a vacuum that would handle all of that as well as reach my ceiling fans on my 9 foot ceiling. This vacuum went together easily and when I vacuumed it picked up not only the pet hair but also all the glitter that was on the floor from wrapping our Christmas presents. It is a great vacuum and one that I would recommend to anyone.
