    Packaging was impressive with only 3 pieces of styrofoam and a few bags that were protecting the vacuum. I was able to get it out of the box easily and assemble it. Our house consists of laminate hardwoods with large area rugs downstairs. While upstairs is all carpet (except for the bathrooms and laundry room). I tend to run the vacuum (my wonderful old Hoover WindTunnel2-I am a Hoover girl) once or twice a week. We have a dog and her fur tends to float here and there. The vacuum is the only thing that picks it up completely. One of the first things I noticed (in comparison to my other Hoover) is the size. The base is only 12 inches wide so it can fit into tight spaces. It has been tough for the past few years getting under end tables and behind certain furniture. This swivels right into those small spaces with ease. The vacuum handle also reclines to get under the beds or couches! The vacuum only weighs only 12.4 pounds...but don't let it's size fool you! I must say, the suction is amazing! One of our area rugs is hard to clean and I have never felt it was really vacuumed. The WindTunnel Air got it looking great! It is now the off-white it should be! There are two more features of this vacuum that I personally love. The first is the long cord...30 feet long! My last one was definitely not that long so I had to break up the house into sections. This one I can complete the downstairs with only one move. The other feature that is a must have for me is the brush-roller shut off. Having hardwoods I need the ability to turn on or off the rollers. The switch is at the top of the canister which is convenient. I must mention this vacuum is bagless!!! Have you ever priced vacuum bags? They are expensive and unless it is a new vacuum you have to order them online. (I know this from experience!) You can rinse out the filter yourself. I am liking being able to discard the dust bunnies right into the garbage! Did the vacuum have any cons? Only one. I had a hard time figuring out the hoses but once I read the instruction manual, I was good to go. Would I buy this vacuum if I was shopping for one? Absolutely! The performance gets an A from me!

    The good news about this vacuum is that it is super powerful, awesome suction and I was really pleased with how much dirt it picked up on both floors and carpets. With 2 cats in the home, we were really pleased with the cleaning results. Easy to lift, very portable for different areas of the home, great for stairs and smaller rooms like bathroom. Rather quiet too. Unfortunately I had to give it a poor rating due to the construction of the vacuum itself. Within months we went through two of them and both had the same issue. It seems the hose and extension attachment part are poorly glued and with very little tension and stretching they broke off both vacuums. The first time the hose became detached from the main body/canister, it just snapped off. The second one broke on the extension hose, the part you clip the attachment brushes on also snapped off the hose. Both looked like is was cheaply glued. The retailer we purchased from exchanged the first one and we opted for a refund on the second one after it broke again. I can't understand how this integral part could be so poorly designed. Needless to say we will not be purchasing this model again. Too bad, because overall it did a really great job. Hoover, you need to put more effort in the construction of the vacuum itself so parts don't become detached so easily rendering it useless. Probably a good idea to spend the extra on a better model.

    Great Vacuum, not so much the Tools

    By Caper5611

    from Nova Scotia, Canada

    Comments about Hoover WindTunnel® Air™ Bagless Upright Vacuum:

    I bought this unit a month ago and I'm very happy with the suction, the batteries, and overall performance, except for the on board tool/hose. I switched to this vacuum because I am developing arthritis in my hands, and my Electrolux Epic handle is just too big for me now. The handle on the Hoover is very comfortable, but trying to attach the hose to use the dust tool is way too difficult. If you're just looking to vacuum, this unit is fabulous, but if you have need for the dusting tool as well, be ready for difficulty attaching and re-attaching... it isn't easy.

    Comments about Hoover WindTunnel® Air™ Bagless Upright Vacuum:

    I bought this for our office. We have 3 dogs who come to work each day and shed quite a lot.
    The WindTunnel does a marvelous job of picking up the dog hair.
    It's super easy to empty!
    Another great feature is that it is light weight, easy to maneuver and has cleaning tools on board for various needs.

    We got hosed!

    By Anonymous

    from Houston, TX

    Comments about Hoover WindTunnel® Air™ Bagless Upright Vacuum:

    I was so excited to find this vacuum for our pet hair issues. I LOVED it and my daughter actually liked vacuuming because it was "her size". I had my vacuum for less than a month when the hose that is attached to the vacuum itself came unglued. I was devastated because this was working so well and my daughter actually had a quality vacuum (so i thought) that wasn't too heavy for her to push and did more than what we expected. So I found some duct tape to try to put it back together and it worked for 1 more house cleaning then came off again. I resorted to duct tape AND rubberbands to keep it together so I could finish cleaning my house. The tape lasted only 10 minutes and started letting air in before falling apart .. again. This has happened at least 6 times now and i'm tired of having to keep temporarily "fixing" it. So now it stays in the closet permanently. I hate not being able to use something that I thought was so wonderful but what can I do? So my not-too-old vacuum that I was really excited about now looks like junk taped together with silver duct tape and i'm embarrassed to have anyone even SEE it. The only person that you've made happy is my daughter who now doesn't have to vacuum anymore because we don't have a working vacuum in the house. My mother swore by Hoover which is the only reason that I didn't look at any other brand. But i've got to say, the quality of Hoovers 10, 20 or 30 years ago has definitely suffered and I don't think I can look at them with the same admiration that I once did. Sorry Mom. I really miss my vacuum, though. It was "the perfect one" that had everything we wanted and more - until the hose severed my love for it.

    Pure Junk!

    By TerryS

    from St. John's NL

    Comments about Hoover WindTunnel® Air™ Bagless Upright Vacuum:

    Works great till the motor burns up - usually in about six months. Then you wait 4 to 6 weeks for a new one, which lasts about another six months...and the cycle rrepeats until your two year warranty expires. Then you go buy something decent with a better built motor.

    Comments about Hoover WindTunnel® Air™ Bagless Upright Vacuum:

    I love my Hoover Wind Tunnel Vacuum. It is so easy to maneuver and it has great suction. I was amazed at what it picked up. It is a little inconvenient to have to attach the hose to use the attachment but that is my only problem with it. I am very satisfied.
