Great power but wand design isn't too good

Very powerful and easy maintenance. This units power is better than my Dyson. The only disappointing thing is they could've done a better job on the extension wand design. You must use your free hand to control the tension caused from extending the wand tube to keep the whole unit from tipping over. Here's a couple helpful tips... After washing the filters, put them in your washer and use the spin cycle to wring them out. Wrap the cord around the handle, the top cord clip isn't strong enough to keep it from falling out.

I am SEVER OCD. I sweep my house at least five times a day, everyday. When I bought this sweeper, I read the reviews and searched for days. When I brought this home I was amazed! One push forward and one strip later the container was FULL of dirt and puppy hair. I was disgusted! I sweep so many times and I thought my house was SO clean until I started using this vacuum. Not only did it do a great job but it made my house smell amazingly clean also!! When emptying the canister, it was very easy! I was able to wash everything out ( that I was able too ) that way the vacuum would stay nice for a very long time. I bought this sweeper for about 95$ after tax and honestly, I would have paid over 400! AMAZING vacuum. The only disadvantage I can think of is that the hose extension is VERY short and it has a thick crust cleaner so you can not get into the cracks good enough. The hose is also kind of short. I HIGHLY, HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend this! It does such a fantastic job!

My carpet is cleaner than it has been in a long time. I have vacuumed my house 4 times it works better for me each time. I replaced my 15 year old self propelled wind tunnel with this smaller, easer to operate, lighter vacuum. This makes it easer to get into close places. I like the long hose but it has no extention pipes so I use the ones from my old Windtunnel. The 25' power cord is shorter than the 30' on my old vacuum but I use a 20', 14 gauge, extention to cover my entire home from one outlet. It would be nice if they had put a light on it but I don't run it in the dark anyway. I like the clear dust container so I can look to see if I have picked up a small valuable object before I dump it. It is very lite and easy to push. The top clip for the cord does not hold very well so I run the cord through the hand hold at the top of the handle. I also like the low price.

We have only owned Bissel vacuums and we've always run into the same exact problems with each one. We decided to go with this brand based on the good reviews and we were not let down! I vacuum at least twice a week and I love that this Hoover is able to hold all the dirt/pet hair/etc. I also love the attachments it comes with. I love using the turbo tool on our couches, it picks up every single one of our pets hair and our couches look brand new because of it, you'd never guess we own two dogs because of how clean it got our couches. I also love using the brush attachment because that is excellent at cleaning our air vents throughout our house, I used to hate cleaning through every single slat with soapy water because it was very time consuming but with the brush attachment on this vacuum, it only takes seconds to thoroughly rid the vents of dust! I love this vacuum and Hoover has gained happy customers because of it and I definitely recommend this vacuum, especially to those that are obsessed with clean, soft carpets like we are!

After reading reviews on MANY vacuums, most high dollar, I came across nothing but good reviews about this one so we decided for $88 we would try it out (much cheaper then the dyson etc...and much higher reviews!) WE LOVE IT! It has such great suction, it literally picks up EVERYTHING! Before we had to go around picking up little pieces of fuzz etc. that our old vacuum wouldn't pick up, but not with this one!! I dont know if the canister is small or if it just picked up so much dust/dirt that our old vacuum didnt, but we had to empty it after vacuuming every room of our house (which we were just glad to see it working so well). It has a very long cord so you dont have to switch outlets often and it comes with a furniture/pet attachment (so no need to purchase the hoover elite for pets for $30 more because they basically come with the same stuff!). We have only owned this for about a week, but so far no complaints!

We've had several vacuum's over the last 8 years or so. Latest is a Hoover Elite Max, model UH72011, 12 amp. I cant imagine a better vacuum! Filters in all the right places and easy to clean/reusable, havn't had to disassemble for stuck toothpick like things in a year and a half. Huge dirt cup! Brush hasn't needed hair cut off it to date. Turbo brush actually works very well. (Competitor's turbo brush things are useless) All manner of surfaes to be leaned in our house It doesnt come with a long wand, and could use a longer cord would be my only complaints. We have 2 Bloodhounds, 1 cat, and 2 parrots, a real mess most days. Thought I was just buying an inexpensive vacuum to get by, as our previous one up and died, but I would definitely replace this vacuum with the same model

Honestly, I never thought I'd be excited about a vacuum cleaner, but this thing is GREAT! First room of the house had to empty the canister...not because it was too small, but because the vacuum picked us soooo much "stuff" the other vacuum left behind. At first I thought it was carpet fiber residue, but not so; it was pet hair and dirt and grime, and this on carpet only 1 year old. Simply amazing (and kind of disturbing) how much dirt this vacuum picked up. I've used the attachments, and they work great too. The only slight negatives (and not enough to lower the rating) is it's a little heavy, the handle angle is going to take a while to get used to, and the hose for attachments is a little short. But the positives way outweight the slight negatives. Cleans great (#1 need in a vacuum), large canister that's easy to dump, easy transition to wood floor (and has a screen to assist pickup on wood), easy to use, nice attachment, rolls easy (nice wheels with rubber outside, not cheap plastic ones), and a great price. Not sure what the long term holds on this vacuum, but if you're in the market and don't want to spend hgndreds of $, I highly recommend.

I purchased this vacuum for my son and his wife as a gift. They are DELIGHTED with everything about it! The suction amazed them and they couldn't believe how many times they had to empty the dust cup; not because it was too small....but because it pulled up THAT MUCH DIRT from the carpet. AN EXCELLENT PRODUCT!

This is one heavy duty vacuum cleaner! I love that it's bagless so it doesn't make a mess and cleanup is a breeze. The suction power on this thing is amazing and I vacumming is actually fun. The cord isn't too short, the vacuum isn't too heavy and it looks really nice. I love that it really deep cleans and does amazing on my wooden floors. This vacuum is a great value and I highly recommend it!

This vacuum was very helpful when I was doing a deep clean of my carpet. I had to put down cleaning powder and my ENTIRE house is carpet. My Oreck couln't handle the powder and the filter was clogged immediately. The hoover was able to handle a lot more powder (and get deeper into the carpet). Also, the handheld attachment includes a spinning brush that was great for my stairs and other hard to reach places. Eventually, the dust did block the Hoover's filter, but this wasn't a problem because it is easily removed. You just wash it and let it dry and the vacuum is up and running again. I, honestly, would not have been able to get the dust out of my carpet if it hadn't been for this vacuum. I'm so impressed! Great product for the price!

I purchased my Hoover online from a big retail outlet on clearance. I shopped many competing brands and finally decided on the Hoover - Elite® Max Capacity Bagless Upright and am very glad I did. This product exceeded my expectations and was amazed at how much my Central VS left behind! How much? Just under my queen sized bed alone, it picked up approximately 2 cups of dust and dirt (not compressed). Yes, I could smell the difference in the air quality immediately. This model is not only powerful but has many user friendly features; the main one being an easy to reach and clean, re-usable HEPA filter. It also has an easy to clean one click unlocking clear housing catch (up front) container with convenient hinged bottom that allows you to empty the mess and return it to the main vacuum body and lock in place with one easy click. Actually there are many many more features that make this a so very well designed vacuum for use that really help maintain the machine in optimum condition for the next use. Now for the kicker, my Grandma owned Hoover's for the majority of her life and I never remembered her having experienced any problems with them. This is a fine product IMO and am very satisfied with my purchase.

I tried fancier, more expensive vacuums, but some of them were heavy and didn't live up to the hype. When I relocated, I had to get another vacuum and didn't want to spend a lot of money or sacrifice quality. I tried this vacuum three years ago and was very happy. I became worried when it began losing power, but I realized that the hose was clogged with shipping material I tried to clean up. Almost four years later it is still working well, so I purchased another for my mom this Christmas--thus this review! She called me a few weeks later and said that she was very happy with the product as well. Need I say more...

Never have I been so happy with a vacuum. I love this. I have all hardwood floors and to find a vacuum that worked well without having the dirt be kicked back at me and having to clean the same area multiple times wasn't going well until I got this. Picks up everything without any issue. Gets deep down in the cracks in the floors without needing to use the hose either. My young kids love to use it and not really loud so they don't get upset and run and hid when it is used. ***Extremely easy to put together (three screws), not a really loud vacuums, light weight, doesn't kick any dirt back at you, bagless, and reusable filter. Everything I needed in a vacuum. I have absolutely no complaints for this vacuum.

Last vacuum died and needed one right away while I shopped around. We have a pet that sheds blond, short, prickly (sticks to everything) hair in unbelievable amounts - part shepherd, part lab. Did a little research first, but did not have time to really dig in and figured I'd get something to hold us over and then when another purchased, keep this for back up. It is really ineffective for our needs. I stress this due to others that may have no pets at all and only vacuum rarely an area rug, this may be fine (remember the roller brush does not turn off, so floor vacuuming not good for this reason alone). So: Pros: Lightweight, easy to put together, washable filter Cons: hair swirls to a fixed point in canister and stays - then catches rest that is picked up, so emptying the canister repeatedly is necessary. Power cord way too short. Hose too short and too tight, thus tips onto you when utilized, thereby rendering it useless. "Pet brush" attachment air driven, not belt driven, so this renders it useless for upholstery vacuuming. Prongs (that hold power cord in place), flimsy plastic and one broke very first use - immediately. It simply wasn't worth the effort even for short term use.
