    Good powerful vacuum cleaner

    I had to buy a new vacuum cleaner. My ex girlfriend took her hoover nano vacuum with her when she left. Before she left I cleaned the carpets in the house the nano pulled dust hair dirt out of the carpets. The carpet looked clean. After getting the new sweeper i was interested in seeing if the new sweeper would pull out more dirt from the carpet. I used the sweeper for the first time and it pulled so much more dirt out of the carpet i was very impressed. I also picked up a second one because my mom's first generation hoover rewind had a motor bearing wear out and killed the sweeper. That sweeper was 13 years old. This new rewind is much heaver than the old model which imo means the motor is stronger and should last for a long time. My only problem with buying the vacuums was the store sales staff at my local store. Long story short I checked online to make sure my store had the sweeper in stock. I went there they don't have the vacuum on display i was able to look the model up faster on my cell phone then their fancy tablet. I was the one who spotted the the vacuum up on the extra inventory rack. The sales person was unable to lift the up and carry it down the movable staircase. She had to call over another sales person to help get them down. Finally Best buy gave me a code that could be for 5 dollars off up to 5000 dollars off. The sales person was unable to check me out and sent me up to the regular check out after spending 10 minutes trying to check me out in the back of the store. the code was good for the 5 dollars off but next time i will just order online and lose out on the extra savings if it means wasting an extra 30 minutes in the store

    A great vacuum at a great price

    We've had this vacuum for few months now, and it has been nothing short of great. This Hoover replaced a four year old Oreck that was in poor shape at the end of it's short life. The suction and cleaning power of this Hoover was amazing in comparison to the Oreck. The first time we used this vacuum it sucked an inordinate amount of fuzz, dirt, and other unspeakable horrors from our (what we thought was) well maintained five year old carpet. We don't have any pets, nor do we wear shoes in our house, but the amount of stuff that this Hoover removed was simply amazing. We thought the Oreck worked well until we saw both what it had left behind along with what the Hoover removed in it's first use. The Oreck was $400 new, and this Hoover was purchased on sale at $99.99. The washable hepa filter is a nice feature, as is the auto-retracting cord. Speaking of the cord - this is my only minor gripe with this vacuum - it's about ten feet shorter than what we were used to on the old Oreck, but I can still use the same outlets as before without issue. As stated, this is just a minor thing and not a deal breaker by any means. We also like the bagless setup for it's ease of use as well as the lack of need to purchase bags. I've had to clean some hair caught on the carpet brush, but due to the shape it's fairly easy to clean without any disassembly. It is quite heavy when compared to our old Oreck, but we don't have stairs to lug it up, so this really is a non issue. We like the attachment hose and accessories as they help clean the furniture surfaces and random kid messes with ease. We highly recommend this vacuum. If you're looking at an Oreck or comparable vacuum, please consider this one first.

    I purchased this in Denver, Colorado and brought it back to Brazil with me. Mounting it could not be easier. When used it on "cleaned" rugs with an American Vac (10 years old, bag) I was amazed. The amount of cat hair and dust (I called it cement dust as just like it) that it sucked up. About every 10 to 12 square meters (about 140 square feet) of carpet, I had to dump it as it was that full. I went back over the rugs a week later, and very little more. I could say it got years of polution, dust, dirt, out of the rugs, and the first time cleaned. During cleaning of the entire house, the filter indicator (I call it suction efficiency) went to half red, I stopped and cleaned it by using the old vacuum cleaner to suck it out. Could not wash it as would be wet for a while, and I needed to continue cleaning rugs and some tapestries. For a hundred dollar vacuum cleaner (got it with a good promotion discount) I do not see how it could be better. For sure all the power and amazing cleaning that people state, is true. It is a good for the value product. I brought it back to São Paulo Brazil as normal baggage and no issues as it is well protected in it´s original box.

    Best Vacuum we've used, EVER!

    We have used the Dyson (Animal) and went through two of those. Before that, it was a Kirby. When we got married, we bought a Hoover canister. It's still going strong, and vacuuming up after 3 cats on a lower floor. On the upper floor, we have 9 inside dogs (rescues), on carpet. I purchased this Hoover upright for 1/5 of the cost of the Dysons. Best Vacuum Ever. It's indestructible, and believe me, I know what it takes to destroy vacuum sweepers. Don't even hesitate, because as long as you keep the reusable filter clean (by washing it under the tap water faucet and allowing to air dry) it can handle anything NINE dogs can do to my house. Your toddler, pre-teen or teen can't hold a candle to the messes this vac can handle. YAY Hoover!!

    Hoover vacuum user again

    I have had hoover commercial vacuum before and my satisfaction led me to choose Hoover once again. This vacuum is quite powerful, sturdy, flexible and work the value. Despite of a little heavy weight, it works awesome on rugs and floor I have. The add on suction pipes and hand roller are the perfect to the need for everyone, and they works without any negotiation. I still have not had opened the bottom brush roller to clean up, but I guess, it would not be complicated. I have not use the sofa and seats fabric suction add on but looks needy and useful. The wire rolling back feature with one push button is an awesome feature, but the only thing that would be a concern of alert is, if we keep even a small piece of wire in wire roll space while using, it gets heated a lot with motor head heat. so it is advisable to pull out entire wire and use vacuum to avoid possible wire burn/ heat

    A great Vacuum Cleaner for Apartment or Home

    I was able to order it online and was lucky that they had it in stock so I picked up conveniently at my local Best Buy store!. I brought it home and quickly perused the instructions and inserted the HEPA filter and was vacuuming away! My apartment hadn't been vacuumed in awhile due to my old machine being broken so needless to say this one had its work cut out for it. This vacuum cleaner did a really great job on my rug and cleaned down deep like advertised. The wand and crevice tool came in handy on the hard to reach edges and under the floating closet doors where usually nothing would reach! The price was right and the quality and design were very good. The best part is (and I'm a life-long sufferer of Asthma) the HEPA filter made vacuuming bearable without having to sit down and use my inhaler afterwards or open a window to let in some fresh air! I wasn't ever able to vacuum without that on my old one. Good riddance old vacuum cleaner--hello WindTunnel 2 Rewind!

    Bought this vacuum over the Dyson set vacuums, was so hooked onto Dyson and its technology I almost didn't buy this vacuum. Turned out the choice of buying this Hoover vacuum was one I will never regret. It is so easy to set up out the box and it works miracles from the moment I turned it on. It sucked up every single hair, crumb, dust and grey particles you can't even see with your eyes. My carpet turned from a hard compact carpet to a very loose and clean feeling carpet. I also slept in my room much better as I didn't wake up sneezing or coughing as much as I normally do. I was so amazed at the power of the vacuum, I even did a couple of rooms twice to see if I would still suck up something and it didn't pick up anything again, it works excellent vacuuming the room or area just once. The attachments work miracles as well and are just as good as using the vacuuming normally. This totally changes my outlook on Hoover and I was super satisfied and very impressed. This one is a keeper.

    More value than expected on a real sucker!

    Researched (a lot!) and almost bought a Shark. Decided on this vacuum instead and glad of it. Not near as noisy as our Rainbow! It is easy to maneuver, really pulls dirt and pet hair up into the collection tank and is so easy to empty. If you park it on the carpet to use the hose, just remember to park it in the full upright position and it locks the beater brushes high and up off the carpet. They may run,but they don't really damage or bother the carpet. One would expect that the engineers would think about such a thing and they did. Only when you release the head to pull the handle back does the main head go down on the floor to do the great job of sucking up all that pet hair and very fine dirt. Runs wonderful!!

    We recently had new carpet installed and it's significantly thicker than any other carpet we've had. Our Dyson, which is an all floors vacuum, is very difficult to push - it gets suctioned to the carpet. I called dyson and they had me remove a foam gasket that helped a little but not enough to make vacuuming a workout. I found myself in the market for a new vacuum just for my living room. Obviously, I didn't want to spend a lot of money. My online research led my to this model. The adjustable height setting worked perfect for my situation. It vacuums nicely, has an automatic retractable cord - which is a nice feature - and is bagless. Overall, I'm very pleased with this vacuum.

    We are strictly a HOOVER FAMILY, my parents, my children and I all have Hoover wind tunnels. This vacuum has great suction and is easy to maneuver, especially with the handle designed to fit comfortably no matter what you're cleaning. whether it's under the bed, behind the frig or ceiling corners. And the extra long cord and attachments that can reach ceilings with ease and those hard to reach a/c ceiling grilles. Steps are easy to clean and pet hairs can't escape the wind tunnel. The bagless feature makes it just that more convenient to use anytime without that messy vacuum bag mishaps. You won't believe how much dirt is hidden in your carpets and runners till you use this wind tunnel. You will be amazed!! Love, love, LOVE IT!!!

    This is my second Hoover WindTunnel vacuum cleaner. The first was the first generation, which was great, although sometimes the belt would slip off. This one is the WindTunnel 2 and it's great! The suction power seems to be stronger than the original, so that's been a great improvement. The canister is easy to empty (no bags needed here), the filter is easy to clean, and the power cord automatically retracts at the push of a handle. For the price, this vacuum is absolutely wonderful. My only gripe is that I wish that the power cord could be a little bit longer. I'm also not sure why they moved the power button down further on the stalk, but that's not a huge deal.

    The Hoover Bag-less Wind Tunnel upright vacuum is intended for cleaning carpets, bare floors, and upholstery It is a vacuum cleaner that has height adjustment to keep the fibers from tangling around the brush even if your carpet is shag. It has great suction & flexibility, helping you clean from bare floor to any type of carpet It has a relatively quiet motor. With this cleaner it is possible to vacuum curtains just as effortlessly as the interior of a vehicle. I really appreciate the practical size, retractable cord, and comparative low weight.

    I bought this vacuum while it was on sale, and I'm so glad I did. It was well worth the money, and I would definitely recommend it. When I originally bought this vacuum I was in the process of moving out of my carpeted apartment, and needed a good vacuum to get all the dirt my old bissel had been leaving behind, and boy did it do the trick! I didn't realize how much I had been missing with my old vacuum. The carpets looked great by the time I was done, and I was very impressed. My new home isn't carpeted, but the vacuum still comes into great use with its hard wood setting and it's upholstery attachment! It's really helped keep the allergens at bay.

    I had to "reset up" a house hold again, and needed to buy a vacuum. I saw cheaper models, and was about to buy one until I checked with Best Buy and saw this one on sale, so I was able to buy a better vacuum that I had planned. I saw it other places for the off-sale price, so I knew it was a good bargain. There are a lot of more expensive vacuums, but this one works wonderfully. It picks up dirt real well, isn't as loud as some vacuums, is easy to empty, and what I didn't even know until I got it home was that it has a retractable cord...what a lovely surprise. Vacuuming doesn't seem as dreadful a job with this machine...which looks very nice, too.

    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!

    I've had this vacuum for almost 2 months now and have been quite pleased with it in my time of use. It does a pretty good job of sucking up most undesirables around my apartment and haven't had any problem of any sort with this vacuum whatsoever. The rewind option is a true blessing in disguise and makes moving it around the apartment that much easier. For an inexpensive vacuum, it does a tremendous job. The only drawback that I can say about it is that it is heavy. Despite that, it is easy to clean, has a cleanable/ reusable HEPA filter, and I think it completely overshadows the weight issue altogether.

    I originally came with the intent to buy another vacuum, but could not bring myself to pay over $100 for one. I researched this vacuum online and found several good reviews on the features and performance. The HEPA filtration prevents all dust even pollen from coming back into the air through the exhaust. I left my windows open to test the effectiveness of the filter and all of the pollen was visible in the cartridge when I emptied it. I love the automatic cord retriever, the furniture/stairs tool, and the fact that I can empty it with the push of a button.

    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.

    Love this vacuum. My old vacuum broke and it had been awhile since my floor had been cleaned. I got this hoover and it cleaned the floor quickly and easily. Admittedly I haven't had it for more than a few months, so I don't know if it'll last for year to come; however it's lasted longer than my $30 bissel from Wal-mart ;) The only thing I would watch on it is the dust bin. If you have a lot of fuzz coming out of your carpet it will be hesitant to fall out when emptying the bin. All you have to do is pull it out by hand. Not hard to do, just use your hand, no special tools required :D

    The retractable cord is a first for me and a real benefit for keeping the cord neatly stored on the vacuum. The pathway may not be as wide as my old vacuum but it is so lightweight that the few inches difference are negligible. It is easy to put together; I did it myself without assistance. The action for emptying the canister is different than my old one yet once you get the hang of it, it is just as convenient. Also it inhales everything in its path no matter what type of floor surface you are vacuuming. I am extremely glad I bought this vacuum.
