Summary: I've had 3 Hoover vacuums over the past 9 years. Two of them have been self-propelled, one a regular push (or walk behind). All models have been WindTunnel bagless vacuums with the extra tools on-board. I choose this vacuum over and over again for many reasons.
Summary: I had the previous version of this Hoover and loved it. When it got to a point where it would be cheaper to buy a new vacuum than keep fixing my old one, I looked to Hoover again. This one was on sale at Newegg. I love Newegg, I loved Hoover, sounded like a match made in heaven!
Pros: Wide cleaning path, beater bars REALLY BEAT!, powerful suction on the floor, good size canister, self propelled.
Cons: Hardly any suction through attachment hose! There's not even enough to get the furniture/stair attachment to spin! In so many words... it S.U.C.K.S... or NOT?! Disappointed in that respect only.
Excerpt: I bought this vacuum as a second vacuum to my Kirby. I use it mostly on my furniture and for cleaning high up. the attachments are not as good as I hoped they would be. I need longer attachments but they work O.K.
Summary: I've owned a Hoover Wind Tunnel vacuum for years and years. They are the best ever!! But I decided that bags were a hassle and would try a bagless version this time. Big mistake... The bagless does not have the same suction power as the same vacuum with a bag.
Summary: This is my second Hoover Windtunnel. My first one, which is still working, was a bagged vacuum. This is my first bagless vacuum. I did a lot of research before purchase this vacuum. I had great success with my first Hoover Windtunnel.
Excerpt: I purchased this vacuum about a year ago. We had been through about a new vacuum every 2 years, and I was tired of it. I searched the reviews, and when we found this one on clearance at Sams Club, I reviewed it and decided it would be ok. I mean I was still paying $200+ for it, it should be good.
