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.

Belt driving brush falls off.
Cleans Carpets Well
Belt Difficult To Install
Belt Falls Off
Best Uses
Had the vacuum for over 3 years now. Motor and such still running, still cleans carpets fairly well. The included attachments are fairly weak examples of the things you need to clean a home. The suction powered scrubber came to a grinding halt after maybe an hour of cumulative use over several weeks cleaning cat hair off of a couch. The belt that drives the carpet brush/beater bar is constantly falling off rendering the unit useless until reinstalled. I cannot recommend this unit based on our experience but I refuse to trash it due to it's price.

good vacuum but not for the long haul
Breaks Easily
Best Uses
CR lested this as a great buy. It does everything CR listed. The cons this vacuum does not do great for long extensive cleanings. it over heats if used over a period of time. The casing has broken down less then 9 months into use. The electric cord began to fray within 3 months. The retractable cord options gave out in 5 months. now the casing its self is breaking down. or longer

Best Uses
Excellent on carpet, especially pet hair. Average on hard floors. Too many functional problems. Dirt cup fills up too fast and I have to use another tool to dig it all out because it gets stuck when dumping, even when I dump often. Doesn't pick up well on wall edges. Hard floor particles constantly scatter due to brush not being able to turn off. Rewind gets stuck every other time I use it. Hose design is great so it doesn't fall off it's hook, but it does not stretch well when using extension tools.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
