4-0 out of 5 stars Floormate
I had the old floormate model 3000 for 2 years..But the switch that controls the wash and dry vacuum would get stuck..and finally the vaccuum wouldn't dry up the foor or wet it.I bought the new 800 floormate and they redid the switch..made it a knob..which I think is better.The new floormate seems to work alot better..the base is a lot wider..and the attachments make it easiler to get into tight spaces like behind tables..The only thing is the cord gets in the way while cleaning..Otherwise it's great for tile floors.

4-0 out of 5 stars Dirty Floors No More!
I just got my SpinScrub 800 today (4-22-05)I have never had more fun cleaning my floors.I have over 600 sq ft of porceilin tile, the Floormate cleaned them all.

As for any new product make sure to read the manual to learn how to operate properly.At first I was using the wrong solution, and brushes.For tile you use the grout solution, and the grey spinscrub brushes.

I have all new tile that had a lot of grout residue, and the SpinScrub 800 took it almost all off.There were a few places that I had to use a rag to get up the heavy grout residue.Overall the machine worked graet.

I have not used the attachments yet, but plan to, and they look like they will do the small corners great.

I would have given it a 5 stars, but they scimped with the cleaning solution.Hoover only gives you two 8 oz bottles for $204.00.They should give you the 32 oz for that kind of money.

I used to use a Siffer Wet Jet, and this does a much better job.Not to mention that the FloorMate does all the work.No more pushing back, and forth (Hard on the Back).I had back surjury six months ago, and I need something that was going to easy to use in a physical sense.The SpinScrub 800 will definately do the job.

I was able to get the Top of the Line model for the same price as the middle model.Amazon had a $25.00 coupon, free shipping, and no tax.

Thanks,
Amazon

2-0 out of 5 stars Easy to use, but doesn't do a great job.
The floormate 800 is very easy to use. You fill the clean tank with water and solution, turn it on and start scrubbing. However, the scrubbing brushes barely touch the floor.This machine does a great job on moderately dirty floors, but if there's any sort of heavy dirt - the floormate does not scrub it away.I've been using the floormate to do the general cleaning on my floors, but then I have to get on my hands and knees and manually scrub all of the tough stains. A Mr. Clean Magic Easer took out every stain that the floor mate could not.
As for the scrubbing attachments, they do work well (especially the grout tool) but they seem a liitle flimsy and I hope they last.

5-0 out of 5 stars Forget the mop and bucket this is so much better!
We're a 2 person 2 cat 1 wheelchair household. We track in a lot of dirt and mud (especially with my wheelchair).After reading the reviews on the Hoover H3000 Floormate, (pros and con's) we decided to go up one step as the info on the box mentioned many things that would have made even the people giving negative reviews on the 3000 Floormate happy.There is a new grout cleaner attachment and hose/extension wand attachment for vacuming and wet cleaning that works great.We don't have much grout, just in our bathroom. We do have sealed hard wood floors through most of the house and either tile or vinyl in the rest.All we want is to keep it clean with minimum work.The idea of mopping the old fashioned way just seems outdated and it really doesn't get things clean when you put dirty water back onto the floor.This though was a splurge - meaning it isn't necessary to life, it's a convenience.

Wow, are we impressed! We expected the vacuum to not be powerful but it is! It picked up everything, cat food, people food, cat hair, dust bunnies, cat litter, you name it. Then, you simply dump the dry crud out of the bottom refuse tank and add water and cleaner to the top tank.Then just wet clean.It's a fantastic change from lugging around a mop and bucket of any kind.It gets our floors squeeky clean and shiny. We both have asthma and THIS enables us to clean more often.We run it on dry almost every day and on wet a couple times a week at least, aside from picking up spills.I can't tell you what a change this is. We've gone from barely keeping up with the floors to a "eat off the floors mama would be proud" type of clean. Best part is it only takes about 10 - 15 minutes to complete both the vacuum and wet cleaning.

Perfectionist alert - We left our italian marble floors, perfect grout etc for the maid in our mansion in Florida. (joking) If you want perfection with grout or anything it takes more than any machine normally, it takes a person with a toothbrush you pay to clean it.Do yourself a favor and do what my grandmother did for 20 years and use a solution of bleach and water and just pour it on it, it gets white in a minute with no scrubing.Of course, colored grout is a different matter.

No machine will be perfect. This though does the job you buy it for - to clean floors.It's great for everyday normal families and anyone who doesn't expect perfection.As for the review before this one that says the suction is bad and the brushes don't work, they must have bought a defective machine because this one works perfectly and cleans great. We're never going back to mopping with a mop and bucket again.

2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed in supposedly basic capabilities
I just purchased my Floormate 800 (3060) yesterday (March 23,2005) and used it the same day (was excited to test it out on my predominantly Italian porcelain tile/marble diamond living room/bathrooms).Even with the dial correctly in place, it did not suction in even lightweight dust balls or confetti.So I just manually swept the entire living room and performed the wash/scrub feature.It unfortunately did not scrub the floor stains well- I had to leave the vacuum on top of the stain fora longer period of time and apply pressure so the brushes can actually remove the stain (simple water stain).It appears there is not enough pressure applied by the spinning brushes onto the floor.I tried the neat grout tool with the Hoover grout cleaining solution - it didn't remove the grey water stain (from mopping)- my grout color is beige and was initially sealed. I'll try it again today - give it one more shot.It looks like a return.I hope Dyson can produce a similar vacuum that works.But Dyson is too expensive while the hose and plastic parts do not appear to resist wear and tear for long.I wish the hose was a little more thicker.I'm afraid the metal spring/coil in the plastic hose will readily wear the plastic hose out. ...

Perfect for deep cleaning without excessive strain, the self-propelled Hoover WindTunnel Ultra upright takes charge of its own locomotion both coming and going. In addition, Hoover’s WindTunnel technology creates a powerful double air path for maximum suction and cleaning. The vacuum even provides feedback on cleaning progress with the Embedded Dirt Finder--a feature that scans the floor for debris, signaling you if there’s still dirt to be picked up. You can operate the Dirt Finder on a regular setting for your routine cleaning or on a high setting for your deep-cleaning sprees.

The WindTunnel Ultra is designed for both bare floors and carpets, with a 15-inch cleaning path and three adjustable nozzle heights to accommodate variation in carpet depth. Dirt collection is bagged using Hoover’s Microfiltration system, and a helpful indicator signal keeps you posted on the bag’s status. A HEPA filter assists the bag, trapping 100 percent of dust mites and 99.98 percent of ragweed and common grass pollens.

The vacuum comes handsomely equipped for attachment cleaning with a stretch hose, two extension wands, a crevice tool, an upholstery tool, and a dusting brush all on board. (The Dirt Finder does not work with the attachments.) The most rigorous attachment is a powered hand tool with its own rotating brushroll--great for carpeted stairs and durable upholstery. Other useful elements include quick-release cord hooks, a carrying handle, a headlight, and a view window over the brush roll. Hoover covers the machine with a one-year warranty. --Emily Bedard ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Thought it was good, but SO disappointing
I thought for the money this would be a good vacuum. Easy to push, suction to pick up cat hair and dust. Boy, was I wrong. The suction never really was that great, and the self-propel feature stopped working about 2 years after purchase. What a disappointment.

2-0 out of 5 stars Please withdraw my review
Please withdraw my review of this product (evh70) since, although I believed that is was accurated when I posted, I discovered that it contains errors.

1-0 out of 5 stars 9 months old - dead as a door nail
I picked one of these up August 2003 and I turned it on this afternoon: nothing happened. I checked the off/on switch with an ohm meter and it seems to be working. The "helpful" troubleshooting guide suggested that maybe there was a problem with my house's electrical system or that the cleaner I had not used for several days was overheated -- wrong! I suspect that the thermostat to detect overheating is broken. I agree with the other reviewers that the product is bulky, heavy and awkward. I cannot get in under the coffee table to clean because it is so large. It also tends to fall over when I use the applicances, also mentioned by another reviewer. The only really cool feature is the air-powered beater brush extension -- which I will not be using today because the Hoover does not suck...Avoid this over-priced piece of junk. Next time I will go with cannister vaccuum like the Kenmoore I had that lasted 15 years.

4-0 out of 5 stars Hoover - Good Performance
Have had this Hoover for over 2 years - purchased online. This Hoover has been a reliable product and has the best suction of any machine I have used/seen. My prior Eureka Christian Klingspore signature upright model had significant durability problems and not near the cleaning power which drove me to evaluate the Hoover based on the Consumer Reports rating. Am satisfied with its overall performance - good suction (not through the motor), good tool set with power brush, and is reasonably quiet, although it is a bit heavy (carry handle is conveniently placed).

Downside: When using the tools with the short hose, the vacuum tips too easily and can easily hit you, or nearby walls or furniture potentially causing damage (scratches/scuff marks).

I am satisfied with this product and would consider purchase of another many years from now, as all functions/features still work as when new.

1-0 out of 5 stars Worst Vacuum Ever!
DO NOT BUY this vacuum. It needs the belt replaced every few weeks and constantly smells of burning rubber even when you have just replaced the belt. The roller bar constantly gets stuck. After about 10 minutes of vacuuming (if you can stand the burning rubber smell) the vacuum gets too hot and turns its self off. It is very heavy to lug up and down stairs and it doesn't get into the corner of the carpets at all. All I wanted was a good vacuum that would work and even if this vacuum was cheap (which it isn't) it is still the worst vacuum ever!!! ... Read more

This powerful home steam vacuum saves you the expense and hassle of having to rent a steam cleaner and keeps rugs, upholstery, and bare floors (other than hardwoods) looking like new. The powerful 12-amp motor combined with five spinning brushes that operate at either high or low speed lift the usual dirt and grime out of carpets. By pulling on the trigger in the comfortable upright handle, this deep cleaner releases the included carpet/upholstery cleaner and hot tap water. For more stubborn stains or for high-traffic areas, this SteamVac also has a Clean Surge feature, which sends an extra blast of cleaning solution into the stain by simply pressing a button on the handle. When cleaning is complete, release the trigger and the SteamVac forces hot air into the cleaning path so you can do a few dry strokes over the stain. This deep cleaner has two separate water tanks to keep clean water apart from dirty water. The top tank holds the detergent and 1 gallon of hot water and automatically mixes the two so you don’t need to get your hands wet. The lower tank holds the dirty solution picked up from the carpet and unlatches to easily pour out into a sink without spilling.

For cleaning stairs or upholstery, this deep cleaner has a long 8-foot hose and a special stair/upholstery nozzle that scrubs out spots. Other attachments include a bare floor nozzle and a powered hand tool that is also ideal for upholstery or small carpet areas. All tools are mounted on the front of the vac in a handy case. Other features of this deep cleaner include a brush indicator, which informs you that the brushes are spinning; an on/off foot pedal; a handle release pedal; and a 27-inch wraparound cord. The Hoover SteamVac is covered by a full one-year warranty. --Cristina Vaamonde ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Hoover F5914-900 SteamVac is awsome machine
Hoover F5914-900 SteamVac is the best. I had Regina SteamCleaner for about 9 years until I bought Hoover F5914-900 yesterday. Hoover is made in USA and the quality shows in overall design and operation. This is as close as it gets to the Hoover pro machine I rented once that sells for $1099. Amazing cleaning power with 12amp motor and ease of operation. Quality heavy duty durable plastics used, makes it a better value all together. Consumer product still made in USA, not China or Mexico is worth the price tag itself, you will not find a better value in this price range. I looked at Bissell machines also but did not like its overall design, somewhat cheap thin shiny plastic look and low web review ratings.

Use as directed with hot water to loosen the dirt, and go slow give the machine chance to break the dirt and suck it out from the rug. Tanks are smaller than in the pro machine, but machine is lighter and smaller than $1099 Pro Hoover SteamVac monster.

1-0 out of 5 stars Only worked once
Because my Hoover, Model F5866-900, very similar to this one, had such poor relaiability, and, the machine only worked fair one time, then didn't work right again, I vowed to insure people knew they had better use the machine a lot during the first year after purchase. It was unfortunate, but after doing a thorough cleaning, I had my carpets professionally cleaned six months later, and didn't get back to the Hoover for over a year. I would have had to schlep it 200 miles to their service center, and then pay again for a machine that was pretty bad by my estimation. One use is pretty expensive.

5-0 out of 5 stars awesome
Let me say that I have never written an online review before, but this product merits it. I borrowed this cleaner from a friend. We have a beige colored carpet and have never cleaned it in 3 years. I thought it wasn't that dirty because we remove our shoes in the house. Well, this vacuum made me realize that it was really dirty. I put hot water in and did not use cleaner(Ididn't want to leave a residue). I went to work. It does a great job of sucking up the majority of the water. The spin brushes made my carpet stand up and look newer again. I did pre treat the bad spots, but it got up most of the small spots on it's own. I thought it was easy to fill and empty. The reward I got from looking at all that grimey water was all the reward I needed. Needless to say, I will be purchasing this from Amazon. My friend has had it for 2 years and uses it all the time. So will I.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Vacuum!!!
I purchased the Hoover steam vac to help clean up all the puppy stains in my carpet. I have tried those portable vacuums that you can get in the pet shops, I must say this hoover vacuum did wonders for my floors and stairs. It is very easy to use while cleaning. The only reason I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 is because it is hard to take the canisters off and put back on for dumping and filling. I would defentley recommend this product over those portable vacuums.

5-0 out of 5 stars Run - Don't Walk and get this machine
I have two dogs and messy people in our home. After contacting a local carpet cleaner to do a wool area rug I have at the exhorbitant price of $180, I decided that for that price, I could get a steam cleaner and do it myself. I did a lot of research before getting this.

What a great machine this is because of the turbo brushes. They get deep down into the fibers and really scrub and clean the rug. The colors popped as if new again. I did every rug in the house. I too boiled some the water I added to the machine so it would stay hot while I worked. It is pretty easy to set up and use as well.

To the person who gave this a bad rating I say " This is not a Vacuum Cleaner." This is a carpet steamer/cleaner. You have to vacuum your rugs BEFORE your clean them..... Read the instructions.

I think you will use and like this machine and be very glad you got one. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

A high-powered vacuum for high traffic areas, this 12 amp Hoover WindTunnel V2 upright delivers efficient design and versatile performance. The machine features a special duct system to prevent dirt from returning to the floor, and its dual air path suction and side groomers deliver optimum edge cleaning. Adjustable for bare floors and three levels of carpet, the floor nozzle has a 15-inch cleaning path and double brush rolls to get at the dirt between carpet fibers. The vacuum is conveniently bagless and collects debris in a generously sized double-sided dirt cup. A screen between the chambers keeps large particles on one side, sending small debris and dust into the second chamber where it's trapped in the HEPA filter. When the dirt cup is full, sliding it out and emptying it is simple, thanks to the sturdy handle and secure lid. The cup's HEPA filter can be tapped clean to extend its life, while the machine's prefilter and exhaust filter can be hand washed for repeated use.

For above-floor and spot cleaning, the vacuum comes with a ready-to-go hose and onboard attachments, including an extension wand, two crevice wands in different lengths, a dusting brush, and an upholstery tool. These are stored in side clips and a tidy front hatch. Beltless for easy maintenance, the vacuum also includes helpful extras, including quick-release cord hooks, a carrying handle, a 31-foot power cord,nonmarring wheels, a furniture guard, and a headlight. The power switch is in the handle, and the three handle positions are controlled with a foot pedal. Hoover backs up this unit with a full one-year warranty. --Emily Bedard ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great vacuum!
I just received this vacuum today, and have already worn myself out cleaning with it! It was time to upgrade the vacuum--the old one had had it. With a new baby on the way, we knew we had to make the investment. We decided to try Hoover's latest model. I have a Hoover SteamVac and have been happy with Hoover's quality and reputation.

The V2 is fantastic so far. It is a little hard to push on carpet on the lowest setting, but I attribute this to the powerful suction and will deal with it because it's getting my carpet clean! I have a large amount of tile floors, and it works wonderfully on them as well (you just turn off the rollers with the touch of a button). It also glides really well on hard surfaces. The non-marring "soft wheels" are great! No more thick plastic wheels that are noisy as you roll them or to scratch surfaces.

I've tried out the various attachments, and the suction is fantastic! I cleaned the stairs with the upholstery tool, and used the crevice tools with great success. I love the way the tools are conveniently stored, but out of the way when you're not using them.

You can push the foot pedal to make the vacuum lie completely flat to get underneath furniture, etc. Emptying the dust bin and filter is really easy too. The other great thing is that it doesn't fill up really quickly. I've vacuumed almost the entire house without ever reaching anywhere near the capacity of the dust bin, although I emptied it anyway just to have it completely empty.

In short, if you're considering making an investment in a new vacuum, you can't go wrong with this Hoover. It makes cleaning so much easier!

CONS LOUD, LOUD, LOUD

Roller on-off switch not easily accessible

I bought this vacuum after trying out a friend's Windtunnel that worked very well. I decided to go with the V2 after much research because of the beltless feature. I unpacked the vacuum put it all together (VERY easy, even my husband could do it). I vacuumed my living room with my old vacuum and then with the new one and got up so much dog hair, dust and carpet fiber! I thought this thing is awsome, but a little loud. After vacuuming the whole downstairs of my house I just couldn't take it anymore, the thing was shrieking like a banshee! I tried changing the hieght settings and it didn't help. It must be the gear system because it only does it when the brush rolers are on.

I called customer service this am (another problem - no toll free number and the website's no help) and explained the vacuum was whining loudly - is this normal? She states " Well the gears do whine a little bit." I said " NO, this is very loud." She says "Yes it is a little loud." Needless to say, I returned it this morning.

Also, while the on-off brush feature is nice, it is hard to get to. It is down on the front of the vacuum with the carpet height adjustment, and both swithches are recessed in to a hollow, so you can't use your foot. So you have to bend over every time you go from carpet to hard floor.

If you can live with the loudness and bending over, this vacuum cleans great! But this wasn't the vacuum for me!

5-0 out of 5 stars Wedding gift makes complete "sweep"
Bought as a wedding gift and the Bride is thrilled with it. I, personally wouldn't want a "bagless" vaccuum - seems like it wouldn't clean as well, but I could be wrong, lol.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money!
My husband and I registered for this vacuum for our wedding and I wish we had read the reviews beforehand because it was terrible from day one! First of all, it's so heavy I refuse to use it for fear of hurting my back and because it's aggravating. Of course that leaves it up to my husband to vacuum. You can imagine how often it gets done!

His complaints: It CONSTANTLY shuts down which means it can take the whole day to vacuum even our little apartment. The main vacuum head doesn't pick up anything, so you wind up on your hands and knees trying to vacuum a big area with a little attachment. It's difficult to empty because the canister is hard to get in and out of its holder. Also, the HEPA filter clogs very easily and the tank must be emptied when it gets about half full or the vacuum power just gets even worse & it'll just shut down. We have only one cat, but it doesn't even take care of his fur. Even after we vacuum if you lean down to look across the carpet you can see a thin layer of cat hair. It's as if you did nothing all day in spite of all the aggravation you went through to try to get the thing to work in the first place!

We will NEVER purchase another HOOVER product! In fact, we're getting a Dyson -this time we read the reviews.

1-0 out of 5 stars No bargain
In less than a year, the brushes had to be replaced twice because the interior was plastic and quickly stripped out. Now the lever that adjusts the height will not remain in place and to fix it the entire body has to be replaced. Though it cleaned well, the breakage is unforgivable. My grandmother and mother are using their very old, very original models while my "modern" version is headed for the junk heap.

Another once-respected name sold out to plastic. ... Read more

With its 15-inch cleaning path, microfiltration system, and HEPA allergen filtration, this upright vacuum traps 100-percent of all dust mites and 99.98-percent of all ragweed and common grass pollens. To maximize its ability to pick up dirt, it features a powerful 12-amp motor and Windtunnel technology, which uses computer-designed air duct engineering to provide a powerful dual air stream. This unit is not only able to get out deeply imbedded dirt, it is also self-propelled, moving itself both forwards and backwards, for easy maneuverability. Other features include an attached hose, onboard tools, front headlight, and brush roll switch-off for hard floors and tool use. This 16- by 14- by 43-inch vacuum carries a 6-month warranty. --Catie Unger ... Read more

This isn't right! I ordered this on 6-1 and was just notified ship date will be between 7-9 to 7-22. If I would have known I would of had to wait this long I would have got one somewhere else, now im not sure if I will receive this after hearing others having the same problem. Not a happy shopper with Amazon!

1-0 out of 5 stars False Advertising
I ordered this on May 24th, Today June 30th I get an e-mail that it will be shipped by JULY 23rd. Two MONTHS after I ordered it. How do they have the right to say item will ship in 1-2 weeks. Now they have the nerve to state the item will ship in 1-2 business days as of today I have been waiting 29 business days. Companies like amazon complain when the government get in there business but when they out right lie to the public we have no other recourse but to look for the feds to help with misleading statements and advertisements by companies like amazon!! I am going to check with the FTC and see if there is someway to prevent these kinds of lies

I ordered this product from Amazon.com on 6/1/2004. I was just advised by Amazon it will not ship until 7/7 to 7/15. The product ad still shows the item will ship in 1 to 2 weaks. At this juncture I would consider that to be false advertising.

2-0 out of 5 stars Nothing like my old Hoover.
After a year of owning and using this vacuum we are very dissappointed in it. We have not had any brake downs like others but it just does not seem well designed. The unit is EXTREMELY LOUD especially when I am using the hose. The units tips easy when using the hose. Where the belt is to drive the brushes it does not pick up dirt so you have to retrace that step every time. I also have a lot of trouble with it trying to eat thinner carpets and other things I am trying to clean. We also have noticed the design flaws other have pointed out here. None of these things were a problem with the old Hoover Spirit which was a wonderful machine. The Windtunnel Supreme does clean very well with the exception noted above. We cannot return ours at this point but I would suggest you could do much better.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great vaccum--It really sucks
This is a great vaccum in terms of sucking power. It picks up dirt well and really perks up our tired old carpet.When I first got the vaccum, I treated the "dirt finder lights" feature as sheer gimmick. But I've come to like it. The hose on this unit is extremely flexible and extends to several feet. With the extension attachments, I can leave the vaccum on the bottom of the stairs and reach up to 5 or 6 steps up.

A couple of minor things I don't like about this unit: You connect an attachment to the hose by pushing it on--no actual mechanism that snaps or clicks in place to keep the attachment on the hose. So very frequently I have to re-attach the attachment as it falls off during the vaccuming. Also, to use the hose, one plugs it out of the "seat" (vaccumed dust gets sucked up through the "seat" tube into the hose and then into the bag). But one has to push the "seat cover" tight so that dust does not get blown out of the "seat" itself during vaccuming. For all the allergy prevention measures Hoover put into this vaccum, somehow Hoover didn't bother to find a better way to ensure that vaccumed dust gets into the bag.

These may be standard features with all Hoover uprights, and other people may not find them as inconvenient. All in all, though, this vaccum does suck, really well.

1-0 out of 5 stars Waste of Time and Money
Bought the Hoover Windtunnel Supreme two years ago. It performed okay for the first month or so. But the need to stop and unclog the hose, at least two or three times before I finish vacuuming, buying replacement belts for the power head (at least ten belts have been replaced in two years- my husband is a mechanic and he has a difficult time installing them)and the bags. As long as you change the bag before it is half-full, the vacuum will suck (if it isn't clogged). Both my sister and mother have this vacuum as well- all of us are looking for new vacuums to buy.

5-0 out of 5 stars beware model differences
I bought the "Supreme" model in 1999. I did not want the self-propelled feature because it was a heavier unit that I would have to lug up and down the stairs... and besides, pushing a vacuum around just isn't all that hard (unless perhaps you have a deep shag carpet). I was surprised at the more negative reviews, but I see that they are the same for the Supreme and the Ultra. I think maybe that is where a lot of the disparity is arising. I LOVE this vacuum (the Supreme). The only reason I am considering a new purchase is to replace the shoddy (granted, cheap) Eureka that I bought for my office, which broke in 6 months (and I will now replace with my trusty old Hoover). I have never had to unclog a plugged hose... but I wonder if the Ultra model is the one w/the clogging problem, since it has a 20' hose (with more bends & such). I don't have a problem with the vacuum falling over when I am cleaning with the hose... but again - it doesn't have the extra long (and heavier?) hose. It's suction is great! The extension wands DO fall off very easily, the cord needs a clip at the top so you don't have to bend over and grab it off the floor every time you turn around... the bag-full indicator is probably as unreliable as people say - but I don't use it. Instead I just pop the door open and check. What people say about changing the bag I find true also. The bag is longer than the bag-area so you have to sort-of push and finesse the bag in while closing the compartment - this really could be designed better. The dirt-detection feature seems to work pretty well. I have one cat and one dog and 2 toddlers. The pets have short hair, so that helps. When I had long-haired animals I still had to brush them every couple of days because NO VACUUM I know of will handle large volumes of long pet hair. In spite of the small annoyances (extension tubes, power cord, bag changing) 5 years later I would (may) still buy this vacuum. I really wanted the extended hose for cleaning... but now I wonder if the complaints surrounding clogging and tipping are related to the longer hose. Anyone have some insight?

5-0 out of 5 stars better than given credit for . . .
I know sometimes you can get a lemon but some of the reviews seem a little harsh. We have always used hoover vacuums and they have always been great. This one is no exception. It has great attatchments, is easy to use and does a great job of picking up dirt and debri. My older son who is always trying to take things apart managed to take off some screws that we could not find. We emailed to company and within a few days had the replacement parts at no cost. We have been very happy and have no complaints at all about this vacuum. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Hoover's Even Better the Second Time
Up until 1997, I didn't give vacuum cleaners much thought. Then I saw the Hoover Wind Tunnel TV commercials, bought a Wind Tunnel, and came to appreciate what a difference a good vacuum cleaner makes.

Now, 6 years later, it was time to get a newer vacuum to take advantage of features such as bagless and self propulsion. After comparing specs and reading reviews, including those in Consumer Reports, another Hoover seemed to be the logical choice. I ended up getting the U6660-900, which is the same as the U6630 with the exception of an extended warranty and an additional flex hose.

This is a wonderful vacuum cleaner! Self propulsion makes this 24 lber feel like it only weighs 5 lbs. The amount of dirt it picks up is remarkable - the dirt finder feature gives you the confidence that you have thoroughly cleaned an area. Bagless is the only way to go - emptying the canister is very easy. The filtration system is most effective - you don't get that vacuum smell associated with 'dirty air' cleaners. Plus, the frequency with which filters need to be replaced with this model is much less than other makes (3 years for the Hepa filter).

Other nice touches include the ability to turn off the brush roller when cleaning floors; the turbo tool that does a nice job on upholstery; the 35' power cord that minimizes the need to change outlets; and the thoughtful placement of the on board tools and extension hose.

Overall, you just can't go wrong with this top of the line Hoover product. Based on the good experience with my previous Wind Tunnel, I expect this model will also provide years of trouble free service.

4-0 out of 5 stars Kirby vs. Hoover
I bought a Kirby vacuum cleaner for a hefty price over 20 years ago. Although, it's made to last a lifetime, the weight of it makes it very cumbersome & it's a real pain to attach the attachments. With regular maintenance, it's lost it's suction power. My husband bought me a Hoover Self-Propelled Bagless Windtunnel almost a year ago & I LOVE it! It has great suction power (even when using the hose), the Self-Propelled feature is wonderful, I love not having to buy & change bags & the onboard attachments are real convenient. I have to empty the canister & clean the filter about once a month. If you have major dirt, animal hair, etc., you may have to clean it more often. The downside to this vacuum is the hose for the attachments doesn't stretch enough & the small brush attachment is too small. The bristles need to be longer & thicker.

1-0 out of 5 stars Probably the worst vacuum cleaner ever
I ordered this vacuum and received it about a month ago. I have used the vacuum cleaner maybe 12 -15 times or so, as I vacuum every few days and it has already malfunctioned in two ways. The self-propel mechanism has already started failing intermittently and the switch that is used to turn the brush off has broken off. Broken off is not exactly the correct phrase, as the plastic didn't break, the switch just came apart and fell into the body of the vacuum. Do yourself a favor and do not buy this vacuum.

On the positive side, it does have a really good hand tool.

1-0 out of 5 stars Hoover Bagless? We call it the Hoover Worthless!
We quickly discovered our Hoover Bagless machine had problems, but not until the store's 30 day return policy had expired. Repeated e-mails asking for advice/help turned into repeated e-mails from us complaining of problems with both the product and the total lack of response from Hoover. We've attempted to discuss our problems with Hoover, but we've received no response back. The Hoover has been relegated to cleaning the floors in the garage where I keep my antique car collection. We bought a different brand for the house.

Each time we started the Hoover, we first had to position the suction hose near the dirt cannister to catch the dust that flew out whenever the unit was first turned on. With 2 cats, we too were lured by advertising hoopla into the idea that this unit could handle the cat hair. Sure it can, but it means replacing an expensive ($30) filter about 6 to 8 times a year. You do the math - in a couple of years the cost of filters exceeds the cost of the Hoover!

Cleaning the "bagless cannister" is very messy, make sure you do it outside and on a calm day! We'll take a "bag type" anyday!
We've noticed that in all the Hoover bagless advetising we've seen on tv, The person using the bagless Hoover is picking up what looks like confetti. That's right, little pieces of paper. Not dirt, pet hair. etc. Any vac can pick up pieces of paper!

3-0 out of 5 stars Great picker upper but.........fragile
We have 2 St. Bernards and our other vacuum was not picking up all the hair and our carpeting was not looking like it was even vacuumed. I read some very good reviews from dog owners and decided to go with it. It was the greatest thing since sliced bread for the first 6-8 months. Now all is does is break. I have had it to an authorized service 6 times in the past 8 months and I still have the same problems so now I am stuck with an expensive vacuum that has to go for a regular maintenance every 4-6 weeks. Love the pick up but not the problems!! ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Made for high-traffic areas and serious above-floor cleaning, this WindTunnel V2 bagless upright with hand tool from Hoover combines smart construction with versatile functionality. Built with a 12 amp motor, the vacuum can handle a wide range of surface types, from bare floor to deep-pile carpet. A special duct system prevents dirt from returning to the floor, and dual air path suction and side groomers deliver optimum edge cleaning. The floor nozzle has a 15-inch cleaning path for covering ground efficiently and double brush rolls to get at the dirt between carpet fibers. The vacuum is conveniently bagless and collects debris in a generously sized double-sided dirt cup. A screen between the chambers keeps large particles on one side and sends small debris and dust into the second chamber where they're trapped in the HEPA filter. When the dirt cup is full, you slide it out and empty it--a simple process thanks to the cup's sturdy handle and secure lid. The vacuum's HEPA filter can be tapped clean to extend its life, while the machine's prefilter and exhaust filter can be hand washed for repeated use.

For above-floor and spot cleaning, the vacuum's best feature is a powered hand tool that attaches to the hose and comes complete with its own rotating brush roll. Other attachments include an extension wand, a crevice wand, a dusting brush, and an upholstery tool. These are all stored onboard in side clips and a tidy front hatch. Beltless for easy maintenance, this model also includes handy extras, such as quick-release cord hooks, nonmarring wheels, a carrying handle, a 31-foot power cord, a furniture guard, and a headlight. The power switch is in the handle, and the three handle positions are controlled with a foot pedal. Hoover backs up the vacuum with a full one-year warranty. --Emily Bedard ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Worst Vacuum Ever!!!
I would have given it *0* stars if I could have!!!
I bought this vacuum thinking it was going to be so great. It was one of the most expensive ones at the store. It broke after 1 week. I had already thrown the box away and I couldn't find my receipt anywhere. I have a long haired cat and also long hair myself. Two of the brushes got tangled up with hair and the cheap plastic brushes melted. So I ordered 4 replacement brushes online (anticipating more problems so I ordered 2 extra brushes) At least the new replacement had metal inside the brush so the didn't melt like the other original 2. I replaced all 4. Now everytime I vacuum I have to alot out about 10 minutes after I finish vacuuming to clean the vacuum. Needless to say I hate vacuuming even more now. It takes up too much time!

I am now getting what I should have from the beginning THE DYSON ANIMAL!!! Never to buy another Hoover again!!!!

3-0 out of 5 stars Really cleans up but has its issues
This vacuum really does a good job of getting up dust and pet hair. We have a large dog who sheds like crazy and 2 cats who do the same. It really cleans up the hair and the onboard tool is pretty cool - it also sucks up hair from the couch in no time. That eliminated my need to use a separate small vac on the furniture. But it IS extremely heavy and I'm surprised it doesn't have the "easy-push" feature most new vacuums come with. We bought this vacuum in March and by December (just as one other reviewer commented) one side of the brushes stopped working. Part of the problem (with this, and most vac's, I've noticed) is that my long hair gets tangled around the brush heads and then burn out the whole thing. Can they NOT come up with a way to fix this? There's no way to avoid vacuuming up your own hair! I was hoping the beltless feature would mean less hassle but we still have problems with this vac. And it's pretty expensive. The noise really isn't an issue for us as I expect a vacuum to be loud. We also like that you can turn off the rotating brushes to vacuum floors and small rugs. But there's just too much room for improvement to justify spending this much on a vacuum. We're just glad that the store we bought it from (Kohl's) has such a great return policy. If it breaks, we take it back. So I don't even mess with trying ot fix it - we just replaced the whole thing when it DID break down. Bottom line - look for a bagless w/HEPA that's easy push for a lower price and you'll probably be happier.

1-0 out of 5 stars WHAT A LEMON!!!
We bought this vacuum because we thought Hoover had a good reputation. What a mistake! The first time we used it, the motor burned out. Hoover replaced the motor. It worked okay for a year (nothing spectacular) and then the suction stopped working. We got it in to be repaired just before the warranty expired. We used it twice after the repair and now it smells like it's burning when we use it. Our cheapo Eureka that is 10 years old works better than this vacuum. I wish I had read the reviews on here before wasting my money.

1-0 out of 5 stars Pathetic vacuum w/ poor workmanship
I bought this vacuum couple of weeks back and the unit will not turn on for some reason. So I returned it for a replacement, the other unit failed the very second day yielding extremely poor vacuum. Amazon denied replacment of the same again stating that this problem seems to be more widespread than expected so they cannot give another`replacement but I wonder` why they are still selling it especially for such a high price! But I must say, amazon has a great customer service since they have paid for shipping the item 4 times considering the fact that this item is heavy and weighs 30 pounds!

BUY anything from amazon BUT this Hoover!

1-0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY THIS VACUUM!!!!!!
Its heavy and loud. You might be okay if you dont have kids, animals and a head of hair. It gets clogged and you have to take the whole vacuum apart to unclog. Than it just clogs again. And hair get wrapped around the bearings on the brushes and then melts and fuses the bearing together than you have a wonderful option of paying 90 bucks to have it fixed or just throw the junk away!!! Dont buy this vacuum!!! And if you write Hoover with your problem, they will not respond!! ... Read more

Keep that new slate entry hall or tiled bathroom floor looking as clean as the day it was laid with the Hoover Floor Mate. Designed especially for cleaning hard, sealed floors, including stone, wood, and laminate, the Floor Mate performs a triple-whammy: it vacuums, washes, and dries. Dual tank design for wet or dry cleaning, a deluxe grip with solution trigger, and a 13-inch cleaning path make cleaning a snap. Four rows of soft brushes safely and gently clean floors with the included 8-ounce bottles of Lysol and Old English concentrated solutions. The brush assembly and nozzle squeegee remove for cleaning, and the EZ-empty recovery tank automatically shuts off when full. Soft wheels mean no worries about dents or scratches on those gleaming floors. The Floor Mate measures approximately 29 by 10 by 15 inches, weighs 18 pounds, and is covered by a one-year warranty. --Ann Bieri ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars If you want to get your dust wet and leave it as streaks ---
A miserable experience. I bought this through Amazon when I contracted to have my hardwood floors refinished. The contractor took way too long, so I didn't try to use it until yesterday. Only the dry vacuum function worked, and not very well. I tried to call Hoover. They don't have an 800 customer service number, so I had to pay for a looonnnnnggggg long distance call. Got a busy signal the first ten times, then was put in line ("Your call is important to us") for 47 minutes, a total of one hour 13 minutes before I got a human being. She first tried to tell me that she didn't know anything about their products and that I should take it to my local appliance repair shop. I insisted and she finally suggested that I unscrew the handle and screw it on again. I did. Nothing, though I noticed that the internal "controls" are a couple of flimsey plastic sticks, the very essence of nineteenth century technology, but with cheaper materials. Ever heard of a switch?

I then drove across the county to my Hoover dealer. He told me that there were two screws missing, which should have been installed at the factory, and replaced them. He also pointed out that the "scrub" function is a misnomer -- the thing doesn't scrub; its brushes aren't designed to move at all. He assured me that the tiny dribble of cleaning solution he managed to get out of it was all it needed.

I took my expensive toy home and tried it. The advertised three-way action is actually about a half dozen separate actions, only two of them (vacuuming and dribbling) done by the machine. You have to do the rest. First you have to dry vacuum the floor. Then you switch over to wet/scrub and three tiny streaks of fluid appear. Then you go back over it to spread the fluid around and, supposedly, to pick up the fluid and dirt. After a few minutes the floor dries and you see dirty streaks everywhere. Repeat process. Same thing. Repeat, repeat, repeat. Then go get a mop and do it properly.

As far as I can tell, the purpose of this appliance is to moisten dust, move it around a little and leave it on the floor as streaks. The machine has no effect whatever on dried spills, footprints, scuff marks, dirt or any of the other things that routinely find their way onto a floor. And the tanks are so small that you can only do about half a room before you have to empty and refill.

I have bought a lot of appliances since I started restoring my house. Some have been great (Bosch dishwasher, Mac woodchipper, Mikita powertools), most good (Amana gas range, ShopVac), but this Hoover is the biggest piece of crap, backed by the worst customer service, that I have enountered outside the former Soviet Union. I gave it one star only because you are not given the option of none. And now Amazon won't take it back because 30 days passed before I could use it.

4-0 out of 5 stars thought there was only one model
i too didn't realize there were diff.models [i researched it on the web] but saw it at brandsmart and thought i was getting a good buy. its not the magic bullet for tile but saves the mopping.who knew there were supposed to be spinning brushes?a little truth in advertising? problem is finding lysol concentrate for machine.is there somehing else to use?

3-0 out of 5 stars Get the FloorMate 3000 or 3010 for just a little more $$
We ordered the FloorMate 2800 model from the Home Shopping Network last week by mistake (paid $165, including shipping). We hadn't done enough prior research to realize there were THREE different FloorMate models, and this was the bottom-of-the-line model with immobile brushes.

It went together easily; probably 10 minutes and we were ready to go. Somehow we managed to get it out of the box and assembled without noticing the brush configuration (there was no need to turn it over during assembly).

I vacuumed and cleaned the white linoleum in our 500 sf kitchen in about an hour, using about 1.5 tanks of water + 3 oz of solution. It did a great job of picking up dog hair, pepper, sugar, etc, and did an OK job of cleaning the floor (still kind of dirty in the pits of the linoleum. I was disappointed that it took so long, but amazed at how filthy the water was, when we had just mopped a couple of days before.

While cleaning it out I discovered it didn't have the spinning brushes. After some quick research, we found that both the 3000 and 3010 models have the spinning brushes. The 3010 model (FloorMate Plus) has only been out since Sept 2003, costs only about $35 more than we paid, and also has a longer cord and extra set of brushes. It didn't take long to decide to send back the 2080 and get the 3010.

We weren't completely unhappy with the results of the 2080, but figured for $30 more, the 3010 would do even better.

5-0 out of 5 stars clean grout !!!!!!!!!!
I purchased this with a bit of scepticism. I'm not a cleaning fanatic, but I like a clean house. Well, the grout in our tile is now getting clean and the stained concrete porch with all the doggy footprints is getting clean as well. I highly recommend this product. I am so excited about it that I've told friends. I never talk about cleaning with my friends.

This is well worth the $!!!!!!!!!!

1-0 out of 5 stars So dissatisfied with performance I returned it.
I ordered this item on the basis of customer reviews. I tried to use it on both tile (in the bathroom), linoleum (in the kitchen), and hardwood floors. In none of these cases did it give satisfactory results. ... Read more

Combining 1,440 watts of power and Hoover's most advanced suction technology, this upright vacuum picks up dirt other vacuums would miss and captures it inside two sealed, hygienic chambers rather than a messy bag. Three filters--a prefilter, an anti-allergen HEPA cartridge filter, and a final filter--ensure that clean air returns to the room. The twin chambers of the dirt cup are easily removed for emptying. All three filters can be rinsed, and the final filter can be washed. Accompanying the vacuum is a powered hand tool for stairs, upholstery, and automobiles. Two other tools--an upholstery nozzle and a dusting brush--are included and can be stowed, along with the hand tool, in a handy compartment. Other features of the 44-inch-high vacuum include a headlight to illuminate the 15-inch cleaning swath, a carpet height adjustment, edge groomers to clean along baseboards, and a soft bumper to protect furniture. The vacuum assembles with four screws (included). --Fred Brack ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars PLEASE DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY
I purchased this vacuum because of all the great reviews it was getting on how well it picks up dirt, how much money I'll save on bags, and the supposed hepa filtration. Buy it if you must but let me give you an idea of what to expect.

When you first get it the vacuum WILL impress you with its suction and the way it makes your carpet look. It just feels powerful. The 3rd day the belt broke and by the end of the first week I had gone through 3 belts. This is not a flaw with the vacuum itself however. The belts are low quality and cheaply made. This problem was easily fixed by going to sears and buying a kenmore belt of comparable size. I have not changed the belt in the last 5 months.
Vacuuming hardwood floors is a waste of time as the roller continues to rotate and blows the dirt all over.
The first month the suction like I said was great. The 2nd month I noticed a sharp decline in this vacuums power. I could barely pick up the dirt and dust I swept from the hardwood floors. There were no leaks and no clogs so I figured it was the hepa filter and rinsed clean as per instructions, but to no avail. I then replaced the hepa filter at a cost of 34.95 which fixed the problem. I,m on my third filter in 5 months. Thats going to be considerably more expensive than bags.
If you are allergic to dust don't expect this vacuum to make it any better. Empty the canister just once and you will know what I mean, tapping it on the side of something will only send clouds of dust up in your face. This also is not a sealed hepa system so it really doesn't filter dust the way you would think it does.

I am going back to bags as my allergies and my wallet just can't take this vacuum anymore.

5-0 out of 5 stars Cleans incredibly well, but one caveat!
Like another reviewer, I decided to 'test' this vacuum myself . . .. I couldn't believe the amount of dirt it picked up, even *right* after vacuuming with my old vac (which, I had previously thought worked perfectly well)! I actually apologized to my family for how filthy the house had been (not really, but from the amount of dirt this thing picked up you'd have thought so!)!

My only warning/complaint (and the Hoover booklet already tells you, but I missed it my first time through and wanted to 'save' someone else the belt if they 'miss' it too!): when the vacuum is upright and you're using the onboard tools (say, to vacuum the furniture), the main floor brush continues to spin (unlike my old vac where if it was fully 'upright' the main vacuum shut off and sent all power to the wand). Not a problem so long as you're aware of this and don't place it on the edge of a rug (where it burns the belt off trying to suck the rug up into the vacuum!). The good news is: they include an extra belt with the original packaging (so I didn't need to wait on shipping a spare)!

So, it took a little getting used to, but the cleaning power of this thing was WELL worth it!

5-0 out of 5 stars Glad I bought it before reading the reveiws!!!
I absolutely LOVE this vacuum!

I bought it at my local Sears, and paid more than it costs here. After reading the reviews here I am glad I bought it before I saw them, I probably wouldn't have bought it with some of the things posted!

I have lived in my apartment for over a year and had new carpet at the time we moved in. Now my daughter is 7mos and crawling. I noticed that the tops of her feet and hands were so dirty, and I was vacuuming EVERYDAY. I also noticed that when I would sit on the floor and play with her I would be covered in carpet lint.

I finally decided that my 3yr old Eureka (that smelt of burnt hair) needed to retire. I did some research elsewhere and decided to get this vacuum. I took it home and put it together (four screws - very easy) and started to vacuum right away. It was amazing!

I had just vacuumed the day before with my old machine, but I filled the canister with just the living room and hall. I loved it so much I was going crazy and using the attachments to get the baseboards, furniture, cobwebs, dust... you name it! I have yet to see a dip in it's performance. I empty the canister after each use (by choice - it's kind of neat to see what I picked up). When using the attachments I set it to the highest setting to prevent undue carpet wear.

As for some of the negative reviews this model is NOT for bare floors, the saleslady said I could try but it probably just push the dust around. Also you may need to clean hair out of the brushes if you are like me with VERY long hair. I shed a lot and I am used to doing so.. it really isn't a big deal.

This vacuum is a great tool. I personally don't have $500 to spend - I have a new baby (with much cleaner feet by the way).

1-0 out of 5 stars The worst vacuum cleaner I've ever owned.
I bought the Hoover Windtunnel in Sept. of 2003 when we moved to Texas. What a mistake. (Guess I was suckered in by the ads). Anyway, while assembling it (with the assistance of the painters who were painting the interior of our house before we moved in) - I was immediately struck at how cheap it looked. Everything was made of plastic and didn't quite fit right. (Even the painters commented on that.) Since then, I've been extremely disappointed by the fact that the hose keeps coming off. Also, the clip that holds the pipe in place has been broken off by a minor collision with a door. Hair is continually stuck in the brushes and needs to be cut with scissors and drawn out manually (yuck). Also, the suction is way less than desirable. All in all this is without question the WORST vacuum cleaner I've ever owned. (I'm 50 years old and have owned quite a few in my life!)

1-0 out of 5 stars waste of money
The vaccum was great the first week or so. We have had it for a year now. The thing is louder than a train running through the house. It looses suction all the time. The filters are always clogging. Not to mention the cost adds up replacing them. Oh and the belts are ALWAYS breaking on it. We've gone through at least 2 belts a month since we bought it! Other vaccums we've had we NEVER had to replace the belts! It smells & it's dusty. It doesn't work on hardwood floors as it kicks all the dirt back at you! All the tools have broke. We've replaced the hose on it 2 times. It tears along the part where it attaches to the vaccum.

The vaccum finally died today....out in the trash it will go on Monday. Don't waste your time or money on this vaccum! ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars This vacuum sucks!
I have had this vacuum for over a year now and am unhappy with both the design and service. The vacuum has very powerful suction.<br /> <br /> So what's the problem you ask, well with the carpet brush engaged the gears make such a high pitched and hideous squeal that you need to wear hearing protection.<br /> <br /> The V tunnel is so narrow that the carpet fibers get clogged during normal use. I am not using the vacuum to do anything odd and I do not have any pets so there is no long hair. I have to remove the brush guard and use a wire clothes hanger to pull the fibers back out of the suction path. I literally spend more time cleaning the vacuum than the carpet.<br /> <br /> When I informed Hoover of the situation I was redirected to a service center for repairs at my one cost. The vacuum isn't damaged it is poorly designed. I didn't use the device for anything that it is not expressly intended for.<br /> <br /> Between the vacuum and the lack of interest on the part of Hoover I would not recommend this vacuum, unless you're a just sadist.

1-0 out of 5 stars The worst vaccum I ever owned !!!
This is with no doubt the worst vaccum out there. It doesn't put up the attachements don't work. And when you empty the dirt cup you get grease on your hands. Taking it back. This vaccum need alot of improving!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Everything you could ask for ......and more
My old vacuum went out and I spent weeks shopping,and doing net research.I have a dog and kids, one with asthma, so I knew what features were important. I knew what I wanted, but couldn't spend $500.00. Well, this one has it all! Easy to assemble,with a screwdriver-just 4 screws, dual brushes,good suction, carpet to bare floor in an instant,HEPA filter,can be used with bag or bagless,easy to remove and empty dust cup,door covering the on board tools-no falling off during vacuuming-like my old vacuum- hose is long and while you are using it, your vacuum does not fall over-again like my old vacuum.I bought it yesterday, and have tried everything, I love it!!

3-0 out of 5 stars Pleased, but not excited
I bought this vacuum and another at the same to really test out which of the two that I would prefer. Sadly, this was the one that got returned.

Pros:
1. Cleans well
2. Array of attachments that are all stored onboard
3. Hoover replacement parts availability
4. Solid construction
5. Good for larger areas with lots of carpet
6. Easy-access controls (except for height adjustment

Cons:
1. Wide footprint
2. Harder to manuver than other brands
3. Attachments not as easily acessable

4. More expensive than other comparably equipped brands
5. Has some lubricating gunk on the canister that gets off on your fingers
6. Canister is harder to remove than other canister-type vacuums (Pull to the side instead of straight out)
7. Assembly is a bit more difficult than other models, but not excessive. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Hoover has pretty much thought of everything with this versatile, 12-amp vacuum cleaner that comes fully assembled and is ready to use right out of the box. There's no need to wait until everyone is out of the house to clean anymore--the Hoover EmPower upright features a Hush mode for quiet cleaning anytime. Hard-to-clean messes quickly vanish with the to the Power Boost feature, while pollens and allergens are removed by the allergen filtration system and the long-lasting Teflon-coated HEPA filter. Instead of disposable bags, the system uses a dirt cup, which is see-through, so it's easy to tell when it needs to be emptied. The cleaner is easy to lift due to a convenient carrying handle, and for transporting, just put the handle in the upright position, tilt the cleaner back on the rear wheels, and push forward.

Several on-board tools are available for time-saving, efficient cleaning. The dusting brush is perfect for such items like carved furniture, tabletops, books, lamps, lighting fixtures, Venetian blinds, baseboards, shutters, and registers. The furniture nozzle works great for upholstered furniture, draperies, mattresses, clothing, automobile interiors, and carpeted stairs. The crevice wand, which stores inside the extension wand, helps with hard-to-reach spaces like corners or along edges in places like dresser drawers, upholstered furniture, stairs, and baseboards. It can also be used for extra reach with the dusting brush and/or extension wand. The extension wand gives extra length to the hose and can be used with any of the above tools. There's also a powered hand tool that makes carpeted stairs and upholstery easier to clean.

The vacuum's handle has three positions: upright when using the various cleaning tools; operating position for general cleaning of carpet and floors; and low for reaching under furniture like sofas or beds--just step on the handle-release pedal to lower or raise the handle. For easy storage, the upper handle folds down making the vacuum more compact; just press the upper-handle release button and fold the handle down into the storage position. To return the handle to its working position, simply raise it into its upright position until it locks into place.

Other features include a headlight for better visibility, a 15-inch-wide cleaning path, and five height-adjustment settings for easily moving from a throw rug to bare floors. Its 31-foot cord could be a little longer because once you get started, you won't want to have to stop and replug. An instruction manual is included to help you care for and get the most out of your Hoover EmPower. This vacuum carries a one-year warranty. --Catie Unger ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

With patented suction technology, the Hoover WindTunnel Plus is a tidy little vacuum that features scaled down versions of the perks of larger machines. Hoover's WindTunnel design includes a special duct behind the agitator cavity to keep particles and dirt from returning to the floor. Adjustable for bare floors and five heights of carpet, the machine boasts a 12 amp motor and a 13-inch cleaning path. The convenient front bag hatch lifts all the way off for changing and checking the bag, and the bag itself features double filtration layers for trapping dust, dander, and pollen. A washable exhaust filter--secured in a hinged case on the side--traps allergens before air inside the vacuum returns to the room. A third filter protects the motor from bits of debris. For attachment cleaning, the vacuum comes with an onboard stretch hose, two extension wands, an upholstery tool, a dusting brush, and a short crevice wand. Handy details include quick-release cord hooks, edge groomers, a headlight, a bag-check indicator light, a carrying handle, and a furniture guard. The three-position handle is foot-controlled, and the vacuum comes with a 31-foot power cord. Hoover provides a one-year warranty on this model. --Emily Bedard ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars This vacuum really sucks!
I bought this vacuum cleaner because I have had good luck with Hoover vacuum cleaners in the past and I wanted to get a BAG vacuum. I don't like the new bagless vacuum cleaners. My wife had a bagless vacuum when we got married and I hated it. This vacuum is light weight and I like the tool storage and the power of the vacuum is great. It really sucks! Mine came with a bonus power hand tool. It works great for cleaning furniture. However there are many annoying things. The dust brush is poorly designed the bristles are too short. The vacuum is very loud. BUT THE THING THAT REALLY MAKES ME MAD IS THE HOSE. IT IS MADE OUT OF CHEAP PLASTIC AND IS NOT VERY FLEXIBLE AND DOES NOT STRETCH like the hose on my old vacuum. The better hose like my old vacuum is included on the WindTunnel Supreme or you can buy it as an accessory! The cord reel on the back is poorly designed. There are little snaps to keep the cord organized that do not work. I used black electrical tape to tie it out of my way. My old vacuum also had handy holders for a spare bag and belt this does not. I AM UPDATING MY REVIEW. I ENDED UP TAKING THIS VACUUM BACK and getting the Windtunnel Supreme which has the better quality hose included. I think Hoover engineers think people do not use the hand tools very much and primarily use this for vacuuming the floor. I use my hand tools 50/50 as much as vacuuming the floor. I am really disgusted with the cheap quality of the hand tools on this.

5-0 out of 5 stars Light and easy to operate
After eight months of use, we are very pleased with our WindTunnel Plus. Some of the best features include:

1. Convenient placement of controls - power switch on handle, and foot pedal to lower handle operates easily.
2. Long power cord really speeds up cleaning.
3. Picks up pet hair or long hair without trouble.
4. Really cleans edges well - again a time saver.
5. On board storage of attachments is very handy and well designed.
6. Very light and easy to push/pull.
7. Not too high or bulky; reaches under beds and some furniture.
8. Filter bags are reasonably priced and easy to find. Allergen and motor filters are washable. Compare with a competing model with $... replacement cost vs washable.

We have had no problems with using attachments. It does not tip over. Hose does not clog. Goes from carpet to hardwood floors, and can clean throw rugs if care is taken to avoid sucking in the fringe.

If you are considering a bagless model, remember that the dirt cup must be emptied and a certain amount of dust escapes. After trying both, we really prefer the disposable bag. Removing the dust either way is unpleasant, but the bag requires attention less often.

Overall, based on price/value, this model gets 5 stars.

4-0 out of 5 stars After 4 years I did some maintenance
Well... Here's an update.
Replaced the agitator and belt.
Easy.

If you read my former big review I broke the top cord wrap.
I ordered a new one. Much better design; only cost a few bucks.
Snapped in place; newer ones shouldn't have this problem.

2 new belts, 1 agitator, new cord wrap hook, delivered(1 day) 28 bucks.

We have burber(sp?) carpet so it knocked out a lot of the bristles and I replaced the belt cause I was there. (lost the extra one that came with vac.)

Cleaned out the agitator area LOTS OF DIRT!!!

I still think for those of us with less than 5 cats this vacuum works great. I'm really amazed by those who complain it doesn't work or lacks suction. Like I said in my original review for me suction is the smallest issue of all!!!!

I've had this vac at least 4 years and besides some minor annoyances it works fine, especially for the money.

4-0 out of 5 stars Few vacuums can clean a Zoo!
If you read vaccuum cleaner reviews.
ALMOST all of those complaining have dogs and cats.
"it doesn't vaccuum the hair from my 4 cats and 3 dogs!"
DUH!
The odor you don't know YOU HAVE! Is a bigger problem than the vacuum cleaner; trust me.

2-0 out of 5 stars PEOPLE WHO DO NOT LIKE CATS WERE MICE IN ANOTHER LIFE!!!
Let me just say REGARDLESS of what animals you have if any the vacuum is not very good. It lacks the suction and for the price it is frankly not worth it. I would not buy another Hoover unless you plan on spending more money. ... Read more
