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.

Comment:
This unit is useless on bare floors. The suction is so powerful that the brush head gets sucked to the floor making it impossible to push. <br /><br />Also the extension wand is two peices that are permanently connected. You rotate one and friction holds it in place. But the friction isn't strong enough when pushing it so it constantly slips.<br /><br />Why CU scored it higher than the Eureka Boss, which I have owned for years, I don't know. The Eureka is rated better at cleaning carpet than this unit. What does one buy a vacuum cleaner for but to clean carpet.<br />I bought this for my son when he moved into an apartment and he recently returned it to me because he's moving out of town and had no way to take it with him. I wouldn't recomment this to anyone.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Bad Design - Carry Hndle atch Bag Cover

Carpet

Comment:
Bad Design - Carry Handle Attaches to Bag Cover <br />If you carry the vacuum by its carry handle and don't keep the vacuum perfectly vertical, you end up holding the carry handle with the bag cover and bag and the vacuum separates and falls. I had my vacuum for four months and while carrying it down the basement stairs, the vacuum separated from the carry handle and hit the stairs and the basement floor and ended in many pieces. Hoover will pay for the labor but not the parts - because its a customer error. Vacuum is too expensive to repair - expensive lesson learned.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I don't know what some people are complaining about. At this price point this unit rocks the house! Everything works as designed and it cleans my carpets just fine. The expanding hose works good however you may not reach the top of a long stairwell. Overall very pleased!
