    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.

    Not Happy With it Lately

    By Julie57

    from Baltimore, MD, United States

    Comments about Hoover WindTunnel® Air™ Bagless Upright Vacuum:

    I purchased this vacuum less than two years ago.  As others have said, I have always bought Hoover because my mother did.  My WindTunnel machines in the long-ago past were great.  This one, not so much!  Yes, cleaning the filters and the bagless canister has been annoying and taking the screws out to remove the brush and cut off all the things that wind around it is very frustrating.  BUT the WORST thing (for the past three months) is not being able to turn it on and off normally.  Once my husband has gotten it going buy pressing the button a million times, I have to leave the vacuum on when I am finished.  I simply unplug the vacuum to turn it off.  Yesterday, I forgot to unplug it and I turned it off with the button.  NOW IT WON'T WORK AT ALL!  My husband, who is very handy with all things mechanical and electrical can't get it started no matter what he does.  He has opened the assembly near the switch and tried most reasonable things he can think of but to no avail.   This has been the final straw in the humiliation of owning this machine.  I've ordered a new vacuum and it isn't a Hoover.

    wonderful vac

    By catsmother

    Comments about Hoover WindTunnel® Air™ Bagless Upright Vacuum:

    I got this vac 3 or 4 yrs ago. Still going strong. I have replaced the hose, the foam filter and the filter in the bottom of the cannister. Easily. The only "problem" is that it has too much suction power! it takes dirt out of carpets like you wouldn't believe. Easy to clean. Very easy meneuverability (sp?). I love it.

    Broke on first try, but worked OK while working

    Comments about Hoover WindTunnel® Air™ Bagless Upright Vacuum:

    Returned it the same day I bought it. Was cleaning great until the roller brushes stopped. Pulled bits of pet hair off them, but wasn't much so did not disassemble the brushes. The warning light that was supposed to flash didn't flash. Tried all sorts of checks and connect-unconnects of hoses, to no avail. Since the dirt cup really was too small, I decided it wasn't worth the hassle. Did like how long the cord was, and how long the vacuum tube was to get at the ceiling fan.

    The machine breaks often

    By Justme_85

    from Mississauga, ON, Canada

    Comments about Hoover WindTunnel® Air™ Bagless Upright Vacuum:

    I purchased this machine November 2013... Everything was great at first... The unit did what it was supposed to do. It is lightweight and seemed to pick up "mostly" everything in the carpet. Fast forward to 6 months.... I was vacuuming when I could smell something burning. I unplugged the unit, turned it upside down to inspect the roller and saw that black pieces at the end of the roller that allows the roller to spin in the assembly had melted. So I contacted Hoover Customer Support and by Monday morning at 5:30am, I had an email asking me to send in my manufacture code/unit number and they would ship me a new roller. Great! I was thrilled!! I received the roller and decided I would be EXTRA careful with this roller as it seems this unit is very fragile. I live in 800sqft with carpet in my living room, hallway and bedroom. After vacuuming only my living room, I would clean the roller, same thing with my hallway and bedroom, just to make sure nothing would happen to this roller. Even though I have been diligent the past 6 months caring for the unit and cleaning the roller far more than anyone should ever have to maintain a roller, it melted again last night. I contact Hoover Customer Support again, however I did not get the fast reply like last time. This time, they wanted me to call into their call centre. I called and was told I will need to send them my unit where they will inspect it. So here I am, preparing to send in my unit to be inspected where I am fearing I will be told it going to be "user" error and not the unit with the Hoover name where they should be building a product to withstand a good carpet cleaning. I will update as soon as I get my unit back.

    Brush stopped spinning after one month

    By cavincent

    from Oakland, CA, United States

    Comments about Hoover WindTunnel® Air™ Bagless Upright Vacuum:

    Worked great until the brush stopped working. Right out of the box the brush would work intermittently then yesterday it stopped moving completely. Took it apart, cleaned it, checked the belts and everything looks fine. Brush still wont engage. Disappointed.
