Summary: This thing does a really great job. You think your rugs are clean and then you run this thing over it and surprise, surprise! My only issue with it is that with the self-propelled option it fights me sometimes when I am trying to turn or change directions. Other than that it is great.
Summary: Actually this is a very powerful good vacuum but first one i got started smoking and stopped working within a minute of plugging it in. Sent it back. The next one workrd awesome for about a week and broke. Its now in the repair shop as its under warranty. Anyway they don't make these the way they used to! The price wad great probably because these are defective.
Summary: Not only is Hoover still the best, but works exactly as described, with all the features and ease of use, as stated. On top of that, delivery was faster than estimated, and product was in excellent condition, which does not always happen with deliveries, in general. Buying from Walmart, continues to be a very easy and pleasant experience. Will continue to buy from Walmart, for all needs, when possible.
Summary: I had this unit for less than 3 mos and had 2 problems. First a plastic part broke internally to the suction valve for the flex tube so there was no suction power to that part of machine. Second the self propell mechanism would not function all the time. Poor Quality linkage apparently would not work that function sometimes.
Summary: The second time I used the vacuum the enbedded dirt finder light came on and wouldn`t go out , even when I cleaned the unit over and over. The 4th time I ran the vacuum the self propelled feature stopped working in forward motion, Had to call Hoover twice about unit they said they would replace it , will see if new one is any better, not enough service centers close by.
Summary: Both my wife and I have back problems and pushing and pulling a heavy vacuum cleaneris not fun. We had a hoover wind tunnel without th self propelled feature and this one is so much easier to use. I do recommend it.
Summary: I like the self propelled feature of this vacuum because I am an elderly person and have back issues. I tried a non self propelled wind tunnel vacuum but it was impossible for me to maneuver comfortably. However, the wind tunnel feature on this unit is not very efficient as it loses suction very quickly. The filters get coated with dust after vacuuming only half of my carpets.
Summary: I have had this vacuum for over two years now. All in all, I'm really glad I purchased it. I did a lot of research beforehand. Dyson and Miele were out of my price range at the time. I also have two cats that I am allergic to and live in a mostly carpeted apartment, so a good vacuum with a HEPA filter is absolutely essential. I chose this one because of a combination of a Consumer Reports rating and Amazon ratings... and the pet hair tool was a plus.
Summary: I have several vacuum cleaners, but this is my favorite. I like that you can adjust the height level and because of this it is the only one that works on my new carpet! I also love that it is self propelled because I have back issues.
