Summary: I owned a Bissell before and it lost suction after a year or so even with constant cleaning. The belt also breaks down quickly and if not replaced you need to keep raising the wheel adjustment to get the brush to turn but then the suction for deep dirt is lost. So I tried a Hoover this time.
Summary: Have had this vacuum for about 2 months. It is light weight and easy to use, seems to do a good job picking up dirt and hair from our carpet. The downside is cleaning out the tank, which takes some time and the short self winding cord.
Summary: I love my new vacuum cleaner, the Hoover wind tunnel, that I bought from Walmart. It does everything I want it to do, is very light (I am 78 yrs old) to carry up and down stairs, and I just love the automatic rewind cord. I am a very happy customer.
Summary: This is the quietest vacuum I have ever own. The cord retraction is great and cleaning is a plus also. I have use Hoover vacuum cleaner for years. This is the most improved above the other ones!
