    Poor dirt canister design

    Posted
    Microx10

    The vacuum does a good job picking up dirt however it is a pain to empty the canister. Dog hair tends to stay stuck in the canister upon emptying which requires sticking one's hand in to remove contents. The canister is emptied regularly and before it is full and still it is troublesome. I feel I should shower after vacuuming. Not a good design in my opinion.

      Hi Microx10! There is a fill line on the side of the canister, that if it is filled beyond that point, it may be harder to empty out your dirt cup. Hope this helps! -Michael, Hoover Customer Care Hoover

    the cord length is perfect for my apartment and it has a one touch wind up feature. I vacuumed up three canisters full of dirt on two bedrooms worth of carpet....it really is the most powerful vacuum I have ever owned. The only thing I can even remotely complain about is the length of the hose...it would be hard to use it for curtains or celings....and the bagless canister could be easier to empty...... but.....for an apartment dweller that can dust celings with a duster and then vacuum.......this hoover wind tunnel two is ......allllll good! can't beat the price.

    Bag less with good suction

    Many nice features like bag less, great suction, one touch button automatic retractable cord, easy on/off button, several attachments. Negative is that though there's a one touch button, bottom release to empty the canister when full, the contents do not easily drop out of the bottom without manually pulling it out to get it started.

    Messy clean up

    The vacuum picks up great. It's the emptying of the canister that's the issue. You are supposed to be able to press a release button that opens the bottom of the canister and releases the contents of the canister. The issue is that the debris often gets stuck around the filter assembly so you have to unlock to canister and use your hand to remove the remainder of the debris. I don't like having to remove the debris with my hand. I would not recommend this to anyone that has the slightest bit of allergies.

      Hi JJ2005! You shouldn't have to use your hands to remove the dirt. The dirt cup has a Max Fill Line. Once the dirt reaches this level the dirt/hair will begin to wrap around the cyclone. Once the dirt reaches the Max Fill Line you'll want to empty it. Hope this helps! ~Kenya, Hoover Customer Care Hoover

    The vacuum performs really well and is great with pet hair. I have had the machine for about a month and the only drawback so far is the bagless canister is somewhat difficult to empty.

    This replaced our aging Dyson of 13 yrs. All in all a really good vacuum. Suction is good, on-board tools are handy, auto cord real is a neat feature and it just works well. One thing that's a bit frustrating is the way the canister is designed. It makes it very difficult to empty without making a mess. We have a golden retriever so we suck up a lot of hair. The canister will not empty on its own because of its design. The hair gets suck up inside the canister and I have to pull it out by hand which is messy. The only other thing is while the auto cord retract feature is super convenient the cord itself is too short. I feel like I have to use way more outlets with this vacuum compared to my last one to vacuum the same areas. Other than that's it has been great. For the price point would definitely recommend.

    I love how easy it is to push around. Does a great job of picking up. Only draw back is how hard it is to empty canister.

    Already Broken after 13 Months

    We purchased this vacuum in late April 2015, the cord no longer rewinds and the unit will not turn off at the switch, we need to plug and unplug it to turn it off. We moved into a new home that had homes being developed around us so we had dust being tracked on our floors. When we initially used the vacuum it picked up the fine dust but that only lasted a couple of months, it no longer picks up everything on the floor. To start off, this is an awful design, the holes in the canister stops up. I have had to unscrew the entire canister to clean it out which is not an easy feat. We are 65 years old and do not have pets or high traffic so this should have lasted longer than it did. Our last Hoover lasted 22 years with an occasional belt change. Save you money and get a Sharp!

    Well balanced, easy to remove canister to empty and get right back to work. Good suction with the tools and easy to move under low tables. The step on lever to retract the cord is a dream come true.

    We are very happy with this vacuum cleaner. After just one pass, we saw much more dirt in the canister than expected. It's very easy to use, and the attachments are intuitive as well. Also, we love not having to wind up the cord - great feature.

    Replaced a 20+ yr old Hoover with a dust bag. I was shocked how much material came up with the new Hoover even after I had just run the old Hoover. Carpet looks brighter and feels softer. Emptying the dust cup is a little tricky as I have to pull out the debris--it doesn't just fall out and there is always a little dust left on the mechanism.

    We had another Hoover model previous to this one. The "guts" were good but the canister assembly was pretty cheap. Hoover has done it better this time, all the external components feel much more solid. Hopefully the internal mechanicals are as good!

    This vacuum is light weight, maneuvers well and picks up the dirt that my previous vacuum could not. Easy to remove canister and rinse filter make maintenance of it simple and efficient. Retractable cord is long enough so you don't have to keep plugging it somewhere else to finish a room. Easy enough to operate to rewind, just push a button. Very please with this product.

    excellent vacuum for picking up dirt

    Posted

    I was amazed how much dirt the vacuum picked up the first time out -- I realized how bad a job my old vacuum had been doing! I ordered two wands separately, to extend my reach so I can get cobwebs off the ceiling. This was a good move. The only problem is re-positioning the canister, once I had finished rinsing it after it had gotten particularly dirty. Overall, I am very satisfied with this product.

    Great basic vacuum for an apartment

    I think that this vacuum is perfect for everyone however I'm using it in an apartment. Don't get me wrong, this isn't a Dyson but it also doesn't come with that huge Dyson price. Overall for the price and performance this is a winning product. It cleans better than most of my past vacuums, has a great cord rewind built in which saves from that terrible old way of wrapping the cord, and the easy to clean filters / canister without bags is perfect. If you're looking for a great quality vacuum that does a great job, this is the vacuum for you!

    This vacuum has great suction. Love the way that I can detach the canister and press a button to empty it out. No doubt about it that this is a great vacuum for the money. It is great for cleaning different carpets and tile floors. I would recommend this for any one looking to get another replacement vacuum.

    I bought this for my first apartment, and so far I am pleased. It vaccums very easily and you don't need to go through a spot many times to get rid of the dirt. With one pass it gets the job done. It is really easy to unload the dirt form the dirt compartment so that you don't need to get your hands dirty. The LONG retractable cord helps a lot so you don't need to be moving the plug from one room to the other.

    I've had this vacuum for a little over a month and have found it to be a great household vacuum. It has wonderful suction and I really like the auto-rewind of the power cord. One thing that is a bit of a pain is having to reach in to completely empty the canister. Not all of the contents fall out when the door opens. Other than that, it's a nice vacuum cleaner that gets the job done.

    Good suction, but LOUD and messy

    This model can vacuum well, but we are returning it. This vacuum is so loud, my wife and children refuse to use it. In a small bathroom with hardwoods, it is unbelievably loud and truly to loud to use. Also, with no brush shutoff on hardwoods and tile flooring, it spits out small debris. Lastly, emptying the canister is filthy and dust gets everywhere. Sorry for the negative review, but wanted to share.

    This vacuum works great. It has lots of power and the cord retraction works well. My only problem has been the plastic hinge on the bottom of the dirt canister. It breaks VERY EASILY! If you contact support at hover, they say its not a warranty item even if the vacuum is 2 weeks old. Hint, a local dealer might be able to do more toward replacing it, crazy as that sounds....IT IS STILL A SUPER GREAT VACUUM AND I AM STILL SUPRISED AT IS POWER
