About This Brand
Hoover introduced its first vacuum in 1907 and has established itself as one of the most recognizable brands in America. More recently, Hoover was bought from Whirlpool by TTI Floor Care, the owners of Dirt Devil. Hoover sells a wide variety of uprights at mass-market retailers, with models ranging from as little as $50 to $300. It also makes hand and stick vacuums, canister models (about $80 to $300), deep cleaners, central vacuums, bare-floor cleaners, and an outdoor sweeper, though the company is best known for its uprights.
Bag Denotes whether the model has a disposable bag. A growing number of vacuums, particularly upright models, use a container that can be emptied, eliminating the bag. To capture fine-dirt particles, however, these models must use a filter (such as a HEPA filter) that can need routine cleaning or replacement. Replacement filters tend to be significantly more expensive than bags. While vacuums with bags may also use filters, the bag acts as a prefilter that helps to keep the fine-dirt filter cleaner, thus extending its performance until cleaning or replacement. Another caveat: Emptying the dustbin and cleaning a filter can be messy, and handling it may expose you to dust and other allergens.
Weight (lbs.) Weight of the vacuum cleaner, to the nearest pound.
Brush on/off An on/off switch for the rotating brush lets you stop the brush from rotating when using tools or cleaning bare floors. This helps eliminate scattered dirt on bare floors and reduces the risk of injury if the vacuum tips over during use. It also reduces the risk of damaging a carpet or the finish of a bare floor if the vacuum sits in place at the low-height setting.
Easy on/off A switch that's located on the handle or where your foot can activate it is more convenient than one on the body of the vacuum.
Manual-pile adjust Lets you adjust the height of the machine to a carpet's pile height to allow for easy movement and thorough cleaning. Adjustments are automatic on some models, but we prefer the manual control afforded by some models.
the worst experience ever, bought this last year, 3 months later it stopped working, Hoover replaced it after I wrote a negative feedback online, a month ago the replacement stopped working the same way the other one did, only this time Hoover Customer service was the worst you can ever imagine, very disrespectful of customer needs, finally they shipped a supposedly new machine but received a used machine with scratches and scuffs with a hose that is actually ripped.<br />called them again and they refused to pick it up and had to actually go a ship it back to them while they also refused to send me one until they received the shipped back one, now they are telling me that they can't do anything cause their wear-house closed for a week.<br />asked to speak to manager, they put me through to a tier 2 CS who would not even acknowledge the fact that they made a mistake by sending me a used broken machine and she kept saying that she is sorry I feel this way just like a robot for about 15 times.<br /><br />never buy a HOOVER product

Good Little Vacuum
Easy To Empty
Easy to Use
Long Power Cord
I use this on carpet, bare floors and for cleaning the cars. The wand is adjustable in height and can be removed allowing brush (which can be turned off with thumb switch) to be connected directly to hose for ease in vacuuming that cargo area and seats of cars/SUV's. Is quieter than most vacuums, easily reaches under coffee tables etc. and has enough suction to remove kitty hair from their carpeted 'towers'. Overall good little vacuum.
