    AMAZING Vacuum

    Posted

    I just adopted a great pyrenees and they shed A LOT. All my old vacuum did was push the hair around on the floor so I decided it was time for a new vacuum. After looking at various vacuums I almost ended up just buying a cheap one at Wal-Mart because I didn't expect one within my price range(less than $100) would work much better than one around $50-$60. Boy was I wrong!! I decided to invest in this one with high hopes because of the great reviews that I read and it has greatly exceeded my expectations. You can actually feel the suction power as you're pushing it and it gets the long dog hair out of the carpet and off of the sofa with ease! The suction is so powerful though it is a little bit of a forearm work out maneuvering it but I don't mind! If it can maintain this level of suction throughout it's life span I will buy this particular vacuum again and again until they no longer make them. If you're even the least bit hesitant, I say go for it and try it! You will not regret it. Attached is a picture of how much stuff it got off of my living room floor in one use, AFTER first going over it with my old vacuum.

    I read a lot of reviews before this purchase. I didn't want to spend a lot but wanted something that still did the job well. This vacuum is actually pretty amazing. The suction is crazy good! I really like that all the attachments are stored right on the vacuum and so are easy to access and attach and work wonderfully. Other reviewers said it was loud but I do not find it louder than any other vacuum I've used or had in the past - the noise is normal. I also like that it's bagless and easy to empty. Some reviewers said you had to empty it often but that hasn't been the case for me. Granted I'm in a small one bedroom, but hadn't vacuumed in weeks and got my whole apartment clean only needing to empty it when I was completely done - and even then I probably could have waited. The only cons I would say are that 1) it does feel just a tad heavy to push but no that big a deal to me and 2) that the accordion hose the attachments latch onto, while it does stretch, it requires a little extra strength to pull on it if you want to stretch it long when you're reaching up high or farther behind furniture, but again it's not a huge negative for me. The pros far outweigh the cons and I'm really happy with my purchase.

    A cat hair eating beast!

    We LOVE this vacuum! We have 2 cats who love to shed all over the house. I hate cat hair and dander, but love the cats. We got this model and have been amazed how much it picks up! We ran it the first time and it was nearly half-full with dust and hair that I didn't even know we had! My wife likes that it has an adjustable level so that she can use it on both the carpets in the house and the vinyl in the kitchen and bathrooms. It also has nice attachments for cleaning the bedding and couches after the cats sleep on them. I am glad we got this unit that does not have the retractable cord. First, because I am lazy and I don't have to empty this one as often because the dirt container is bigger because it doesn't need the room for the cord retraction part. Second, I've know a few people who had vacuums with retractable cords. While those units are easier to put away without winding the cord, they inevitably broke within a year or two (usually right after the warranty expired). The manual cord is a little more work, but lasts alot longer if you take care of it. This is definitely a light vacuum that can do some serious work!

    Powerful vacuum at a great price

    I purchased this Hoover as a replacement for a problematic Bissell that required constant adjustment related to the pulley for the brush. As the reviews on Best Buy were positive, I decided to give Hoover a chance. The larger capacity of the bin allows the dirtiest of rooms to be tacked with less time spent emptying what this beast is able to pick up. The five levels of adjustment for floor/carpet height are simple and intuitive to use. The lighter weight of this vacuum compared to competing units is a benefit if you'll need to clean multiple floors. The only minor quibble I have with this model relates to the power cord. While length is ample, the placement in relation to the back of the vacuum is sub-optimal. You'll constantly need to be aware of where it's lying in relation to the path that you're cleaning. Otherwise, you'll risk tangling the cord and/or running over it. This is certainly a stronger bargain/value compared to vacuums costing at least twice as much. Highly recommended!

    I just purchased this vacuum today, and I cannot be more happy with this decision. I had a dyson vacuum before and it took a dump last week. I needed a new one, so while my husband and I were shopping in the store, we decided to look at the vacuum section and this one was on sale so we looked it up online to check out the reviews real quick and saw the ratings were good,so we grabbed it. When I got home, the assembly was super easy and when I vacuumed, I was soooo amazed and disgusted at how much stuff this thing pulled out of my carpet. We live in a small 900 square foot apartment and I had to empty this thing out before I even finished the whole place! I was so shocked. I NEVER had to do that with my dyson, and I would only vacuum once a week. As long as this vacuum lasts us a couple years, I will forever buy hoovers. Great product.

    Excellent pet vacuum for its decent price

    I was debating whether to get a dyson pet vacuum or this vacuum since we have two dogs at home - one siberian husky and one is a german shepherd husky mix. By reading numerous reviews I decided to give this Hoover vacuum a try since it's incredibly cheap when comapred to the dyson vacuums. After my first time vacuuming, I have to say what everyone wrote on the reviews is true. It picks up dirt and fur very well. The attachments come in handy. The only down side is, yes, the hose is a bit short when compared with many other vacuums. But that's not a problem for me at all after considering its price and sucking ability. I only have had it for a day so I can't say much about its durability. But there's a 2-year warranty. I'm not all that worried. I would like to thank those of you who wrote detailed reviews! Super helpful!

    I am a repeat Hoover Windtunnel buyer. I love the technology! My old Hoover did a great job but was heavy. This one is super light (I love that). I have two dogs and two horse and two kids and we live in the desert, so I have ALOT of animal fur, dust, and dirt to pick up and the pet tools work great. I really like the bagless feature. I don't have to wait to dump the bag, and I love being able to see everything it picked up. The HEPA filter is also a plus. You can clean it yourself. I also like the new hose. My old one was made of a plastic material and eventually got permanent kinks in it. This one doesn't kink and stretches farther (about 12ft.) Great quality for the price (less than $100).

    This Vacuum Really Sucks - But In A Good Way

    My wife and I were looking at many Dyson models and other vacuums in our pursuit to replace our aging hand-me-down model we were then using. After much research, we decided what the heck, this vacuum was made by Hoover and they have been selling vacuums forever, it felt like a nice vacuum in store and had a similar look to the Dyson vacuums, and - arguably best of all - it was about 1/5 of the price of the Dyson's. After having owned it now for a couple months, we truly love the vacuum. It has 90% of the features of a Dyson and I would submit to you that it works almost or just as good in terms of performance. If you are in the market for a vacuum and don't want to spend more than you did on your living room TV, give this vacuum a look.

    i got my vac yesterday. i started out using the aboveground accessories, and the room was very sunny. i noticed some pet hair and dust coming from (blowing out of) the hole where you would "click in" the hose when you're done with it, but even more so when you turn it back on. the static from the unit caused all of that dust and hair to collect an the outside of the canister. this happens every time, even after emptying the canister. i called hoover customer service, and they were no help at all. i love everything about my new vac that i resolved to just stuff a rag in the hole when i'm using the hose. i have 2 dogs and 8 cats (all indoor/outdoor) and had neglected my carpets for a long time. i am amazed how much crud it pulled out of my carpet!

    This is a great vacuum cleaner... we have 3 large dogs in the house, all of which shed A LOT (one is 120 lbs and has hair that is 4-6" long) and this vacuum handles all the hair with no problem. Very impressive suction and the high capacity canister is super easy to release, empty and put back on. It's also relatively light weight, so it's easy to maneuver. I even bought a second one for my mom (who has a couple dogs as well) because she could easily handle it even with her arthritis. It's hard to beat a Dyson, but if you don't want to shell out that kind of money, this is the way to go... this thing gets the job done almost as well for WAY less money.

    So with the cats I have (3) I needed something that would allow me to get the immense amount of fur these furballs shed all over the house. I had a "cheapy" sweeper that I used from Wal-mart, and when it finally died I invested in this one...... HOLY COW THIS THING IS AWESOME! It definitely does it's job with getting the pet hair/dander up, my allergies have even lessened since buying this, and my house is staying cleaner! I was seriously grossed out the first week I bought it by what I picked up that my old sweeper had missed. PLUS I love that you can wash everything out to keep it even MORE clean! Gah just an overall amazing investment! LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE!

    I read several reviews that were somewhat negative prior to my purchase. We were enticed by the low price of this vacuum when our old one decided it just wasn't going to work anymore. I believe we got this one on sale for $79.99. With some vacuums running upward of $400 or more, we found this to be a great price. Hoover is no new name on the vacuum market. They've been around for years for a reason. The design is sleek, the pet hair attachments seem to work well and the canister is super easy to take off for emptying. The only real negative about this vacuum is that the hose for the extensions could be about a foot (or two!) longer. All in all, a great product, especially if you're able to secure it at the same low price we did.

    I have used many vacuums over the years. All of them had decent features but the only one that was consistently reliable was my bagged Hoover. I was tired of changing the bags so I switched to a bagless. I bought the less expensive brands and the worked for a while then they would fry. Well now I've bought another Hoover and so far I am ecstatic! I bought the animal model not because I have animals, but because I have 3 girls with long hair, so I am hoping the clogging issues I've had with other brands will me nearly nonexistent with this vacuum!! This vacuum has power, and as long as it keeps the power, I will never buy another brand!!!

    I got this vacuum because I recently adopted a cat and wanted something that would keep the couch fur free. This vacuum definitely does the job. The two attachments that it comes with are really nice and they help get all of the hair off of the microfiber couch. The vacuum is also really easy to empty when it gets full. My only issue I have with it is that the on/off switch is in an awkward location and I have a hard time finding it when I'm not looking. I'm used to the pedal on/off switch so this might just be me and it's really not a big deal. Overall I really like this vacuum and I'm happy with how it works.

    I have tried high end and the low end ones. For the price this one works great! I have a German Shepherd and I was impressed with It's ability to pick up the hair on carpet as well as hard floors. It is fairly quiet running. Nice cord length. If I had to find a fault with it? It would be emptying the dirt can when you have a dog. You have to pull it out (It won't just fall out when you pop the lid) but, then I have had other ones that were just like this at 4 times the price. So if your just needing a great product at a great price that WORKS well then.... this is it!

    I took the plunge and bought this new vacuum since I just got a new dog and already have a cat. I wanted a strong vacuum with the capability to clean multiple surfaces. I did a lot of research beforehand and this vacuum seemed to fit my needs and be in the price range I wanted to be in. The vacuum works so great and is so powerful! I love the different attachments available so I can clean baseboards, stairs, etc. I actually enjoy vacuuming now because of how great this vacuum is!

    I was so tired of our upright vacuum that my husband kept trying to fix. It didn't pick up dust, debris - it would throw it! One day after my husband had cleaned it and checked everything I went to vacuum a scatter rug. That's when I threw up my hands and refused to spend ten minutes on what should have been a one minute chore. I had seen great reviews on this upright and thought that I would give it a try. I am so impressed with this Hoover. It does the job in no time, and I didn't have to spend a terrific amount of money. This is making vacuuming fun if you can believe it!!

    I have purchased 3 vacuums in the last year trying to find one that will pick up all the dog hair and dirt in my home. First was a Shark and it worked great but it lasted 2 weeks. It couldn't handle the amount of hair. Second was Eureka. Worked one time and then just stopped working. The Hoover has by far been my angel in purple. Picks up everything and has so much power. Not all that heavy. It may seem so cheap but so far the cheapest vacuum has been the best one with the best warranty. I highly recommend this for anyone with pets and lots of dirt. I can't see myself getting anything else again.

    I Love Love Love this vacuum cleaner. I have 3 dogs and a cat. With all wood floors and one rug, I was sweeping a lot!! The first time I used it on the rug, it almost filled up the canister!! I was shocked at the amount of hair, but very impressed. The long chord is great for going down hallways. The pet brush, grabs every hair. It also works great on the furniture, hard wood floors and here's the best part.....the long handle extensions allow me to clean the lint out of my dryer!!!! I got this on sale, which made it even better but I would pay full price because this thing is awesome!!
