Summary: Unfortunately, we had to return the vacuum and won't replace it with another. It worked fine until we got to the Persian rug in our living area. My husband could barely push it and I could not push it at all. He said he had the same problem on another area rug we have. The wall-to-wall carpeting in the bedroom was not a problem. He spoke with the Hoover representative who explained there was only on level of suction.
Summary: I have this vacuum and I must say I HATE IT! Last year all of my carpeting had been replaced with newer rugs and using this vacuum is a workout for your arms! My living room has a thicker rug and it can be difficult to vacuum. The rugs that were taken out it did fine on (very thin rugs with no padding under them) it was as if I was vacuuming a hardwood floor which also does great on by the way. But if you have thicker rugs, don't waste your money!
Summary: While I did not purchase mine here at Walmart, was purchased at my local Target store, I wanted to share my experience with this vacuum. I really wanted to give this at least a 4 but that would be a lie. For some reason, the suction on this thing is great on carpet, compared to a Kirby I purchased. However, when it came to vacuuming the linoleum in my kitchen, not so great.
Summary: This is a very light upright vacuumed cleaner, but the material is very fragile. The lever that held the power cord together was crack the moment I opened the box. Absolute not what I expected. I returned only after 3 days in use.
Summary: I bought this vacuum a couple of months ago and was very pleased with it until the main suction hose broke. I have a small house and with 2 little kids, a husband and a dog, my house get's very messy with all kinds of debris. This little vacuum was easy to quickly grab and pick up messes being that it is so light. It also has very good suction and is easy to handle and clean.
Excerpt: It is noisy and uncomfortably loud. The wind tunnel fell apart and and whistles. I have had to use stretch cords to keep it together.ManeuverabilityIt is ok, but very heavy.Ease of MaintenanceIt is easy to empty the container, but a nusiance to remove the stretch cord and then replace it after emptying the containerlSuction PerformanceI cleans both carpet and hard floors well.VersatilityIt can be used on both carpet and hard floorsDesignThe dirt cup must be attached with...
Summary: I bought this one since it was lightweight and the cord was 30 feet long. But, like other buyers, I agree that the attachments were flimsy and did not stay on the vacuum. plus, the cord hook did not hold the cord, kept falling off during vacuuming. The suction was not that great, finally realized that it was only a 11 amp machine, so I returned it to a nearby store.
Excerpt: At first I was excited about this vacuum,it is lightweight,good suction,however I was soon disappointed when the hoses started falling apart,the hose was fixed but,I soon had to duck tape the hose together!
Canister is very small and needs to be emptied frequently.
Dust and lint gets caught above the bristles where it is hard to clean without taking it apart.
Summary: Well it say is shoould include: On Board Tools 3-in-1 Combination Tool 2.5' Extension Wand – extends reach of the hose to 14" Crevice Tool – helps clean nooks and crannies Upholstery/Dusting Brush – helps get furniture clean But I did not see them when they arrived, no the 3-1 tools
