    Terrific Vacuum!

    Customer review by JBecker

    5.0 stars by JBecker

    Hoover Platinum Lightweight Bagged Upright with Canister (UH30010COM) (3/14/09) Overall, this is a terrific vacuum. The person who will be happiest with this combination is the person who: (1) wants a lightweight vacuum, (2) has mostly carpet in their home, (3) has carpeted stairs, and (4) uses attachments. I liked my old vacuum, so using the LBU has been an eye-opening experience for me: I didn’t realize how much effort I was exerting with my old upright with attachments - not only heavier, but so much bending and stooping to change settings or get tools. At 11 pounds, the LBU is 2 to 3 pounds heavier - but less expensive - than competing models. Bonuses: it has a longer cord and a stair cleaning handle. Competing models – Hoover LBU, 11 lbs list $400/retail $400 (includes canister), 6 yr warranty Riccar RSL5; 8 lbs list $710/ retail $500 (without canister), 3 yr warranty Oreck XL Gold: 9 lbs list $600/ retail $500 (includes canister), 5/10 warranty Oreck XL Platinum: 9 lbs list $800/ retail $600 (includes canister), 10 yr warranty All are similar to commercial models, but you don’t get the same auto carpet height adjustment, lifetime belt, HEPA filtration, and warranty on commercial models. The supplementary canister has a strap & 25 foot cord. The canister carries the crevice and brush attachments on board, so switching is easy, and the wand is extendable. (I don’t use the floor tool, because I use a stick vac on my hardwoods.) PROS FINGERTIP CONTROLS – Wonderful. Many models have this type of control now, and now that I have used it I wouldn’t buy one that didn’t have it. HEPA SYSTEM – Remarkable. My old vacuum was a HEPA model with HEPA bags, but there is no comparison to this model. The air on this vacuum comes out smelling fabulous. I bought and returned a top rated Kenmore canister that had the exact same amazingly clean exhaust (turns out I don’t like using a canister), so I think this is the new hallmark of quality vacuums. AUTO CARPET HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT - Works beautifully. I used to have to stoop down to change the carpet height adjustment on different rugs, but the LBU self-adjustment really works – no problem pushing vacuum over even the thickest pile. CORD PLACEMENT – Smart! It comes out the behind the top of the bag rather than the bottom. This means I have even more useable cord, because I don’t have to hold part of the cord up to avoid running over it. CLEANING ABILITY - VERY effective carpet cleaner, my 15 year-old carpets look & feel remarkably cleaner & newer. Excellent at removing pet hair from carpet. The upright is 5.5 amps with direct air flow, like the Riccar & Oreck models listed. The canister is 7 amps. (The combined total is listed in the product description – very confusing. I suppose Hoover thought consumers want a 12 amp machine, but amps are like gas mileage; if you get more suction for less amperage it’s like getting better mileage. That’s good, not bad. Plus you won’t blow your fuses!) EASILY MANEUVERABLE – One expects this of a lightweight model, and all the models I tried handled easily, but the Riccar & Orecks I tried had to be kicked or tipped up over the edge of an area rug placed onto another carpet. In my home I have area rugs in several rooms on top of the wall-to-wall carpeting, and the LBU moves seamlessly over the edges (even on my thickest area rug) without needing a kick or an extra hard push. LIFETIME LED HEADLIGHT – Brilliant! (Literally!) It is brighter than any other light I have ever had on a vacuum, and is it actually aimed at the carpet! I think having the LEDs has allowed them to aim the light better than with a standard bulb. I am sure other LED equipped models are comparable, so look for this feature, LIFETIME BELT - YES! I’ve replaced SO many belts over the years and I won’t have to do THAT anymore, thank goodness. STAIR-CLEANING HANDLE – Finally. It is comfortably shaped & works well. To use competitors’ models on stairs, you have to hold them by the back tube, which I’ve tried, and it isn’t nearly as easy as using the handle. However, see cons below. CORD RELEASE – Doesn’t have one. This worked out to be a pro for me, because it caused me to wind up the 35’ cord on my arm and just plop it into the top cord holder. The LBU doesn’t threaten to tip over at all when I do this, so it works just great and saves yet another bend and stoop. CONS STAIR-CLEANING HANDLE – Good grief! I assume it really WAS necessary to vent the motor exhaust toward the stair-cleaning handle (!), so rather than curse the engineers, hold the handle on the right-hand side. It’s big enough to do that, thank goodness. Or vacuum the stairs first, before the motor gets warm. NO BRUSH ROLL ON/OFF – Hmmm. This is in the description (and competitors’ models are the same), so it means that the vacuum is intended ONLY for people with mostly carpet. I have about 80/20 carpet/bare floor, so it works for me. I use a stick vac on my hardwood, and the other person I talked to that has hardwood floors and this vacuum says she doesn’t care because her hardwood floors aren’t new anyway. But if you have brand-spankin’-new hardwood floors, will you really want to use a brush-roll on them? EXPENSIVE BAGS – Really, $5 each? But they are huge, and they are the very high quality type with fabric-like paper, so we’ll see. I used to have to change my old ones ($3) fairly often, so maybe this will work out the same or even cheaper. CORD RELEASE – Doesn’t have one. But see pros above. CARRY-STRAP FOR CANISTER – Not padded. Anyone know where I can buy a pad for a 1 ½ inch strap? Sorry for the length, but since there are so few reviews out there as yet, I wanted to be thorough.

    I was chosen to participate in a case study with this vacuum through a site called Cafemom. I fell in love with this product. I have a zoo in my house and it can get rather hairy. It picks up the hair with no issues and is easy to push around. Hi and low settings for different parts of the house and also has an indicator letting you know when to change your bags. The second little gadget that goes with it is easy to cart around and helps with getting gunk off the edges around the baseboards.

    Customer review by VaGadgetGuy

    5.0 stars by VaGadgetGuy

    After days of reading reviews and driving sales people nuts I finally purchased this Hoover over the Simplicity Freedom 3600. Up front the Simplicity is at least two pounds lighter, pulls about the same or maybe better, is made in the USA, has a 3 year warranty, is more expensive, does not come with a portable canister, and, “made in the USA” or not, they have a horrible business model (try purchasing one on-line, you can’t). My old Windtunnel dual V has dual counter rotating brushes and a 12 amp “clean air” motor (air is drawn through the filter before the motor). The new lightweight has a 5.5 amp “direct air” motor (air is drawn in through the motor and blown into the filter). Before taking the new lightweight out of the box, I cleaned the brush rollers and filter on the old dual V and thoroughly vacuumed the downstairs carpets. I immediately cleaned them again with the new lightweight. The new vacuum did pull more dirt and cat hair up but it wasn’t a shocking amount. The verdict is it’s a great vacuum that is quieter, uses less energy, cleans better, and is far easier to lug upstairs than the heavy old dual V. I must respectfully disagree with a few earlier posts about this product though. The large plastic wheels in the back have hard rubber tires on them. The unit also has rubber rollers under the front. Since the brush roller has no “beater bar” (probably a thing of the past now) I have no reservations about using this vacuum on my hard floors. A close look at the balance weights driven into the brush roller reveals that the brush roller is painted wood not plastic. It does in fact have a cord release although poorly designed. I was reluctant to apply the required force to the upper wrung for fear it would break but it did finally rotate. I was puzzled why the powered brush roller always ran even when upright until I went to clean the stairs. For stair cleaning I found it easier to use the unit upright holding it by the stair handle and the rear lifting handle. Holding the unit this way is awkward at first but will keep your hand away from the motor vent. Moving the unit parallel with the stair will also clean closer to the back of the stair. The LED lights do cast a shadow just in front of the cleaning head but it’s in near constant motion so it didn’t bother me. If I could change the design I would place the LEDs on the front (like most competitors). They are probably less than 1 watt each so I’d run them all the time instead of only when the machine is running.

    • I do have the platinum clordless upright as well. If I had only hardwood, I'd just use that one, since it's a lightweight dream.

    • I don't see why you can't use it on hardwoods. It adjusts pretty low and when you turn it on floor instead of carpet the beater bar motor turns off.

    • I use it on my tile floor, however if you have no carpet, you might want to go with a different unit where you can turn off the brush. This vacuum will not let you turn off the brush, which can cause the debris on the floor to get thrown around instead of sucked up. You could use the canister vacuum that comes with it and use an attachment, but that is not as easy as a push style vacuum with the brush turned off.

    • I use both on my wood floors. I put the vacuum on "Lo," to vacuum my floors. Both machines do a great job, but I have to say that obviously the hand vac will get into the tight spots and overhead. But yes, you can use both units on non-carpeted areas.

    • I have found that any vacuum in which the "beater bar" cannot be turned off has difficulty on harwood, however, this vacuum does better than most. Although it will still sling a poptart crumb from time to time. Its suction is so strong though that most any dirt will get sucked up eventually. Also, I have not seen any brush marks on my hardwood from the vacuum.

    • I don't see why you couldn't use the upright on hardwood floors. The suction power doesn't seem overbearing & you can adjust the height. I'd use it on tile or lineoleum also. Using the upright instead of the canister, I'd think would be easier.

    • I put the upright vacuum on the "lo" setting and it works fine. It leaves no scratches on my hardwood floors. I think you will be very pleased with this vacuum. I actually enjoy vacumming now. Is that possible? It has been from me. This is the best vacuum I have purchased in years. I have high hopes for many, many years of use.

    • It seems that the upright vacuum does not have a switch to turn off the brushroll. This is from Hoover's website as well as the owner's manual. I don't actually own it, though.

    How loud is this vac. We have a Hoover bagless twin-chamber which my wife hates. It sounds like a tornado & throws out as much dust as it picks up almost. Will never buy another bagless.

    • we had a Hoover bagless twin-chamber vac and hated it too. this is MUCH nicer. It is not nearly as loud, but it's not quiet either. Both upright and canister are medium loud. certainly better in sound (and in all respects) that what we had.

    • I had a Electrulux upright I returned because it was loud, and the Dirtdevil I have is very loud, and the previous Hoovers I have had were Loud, But this Vacum is much quieter than any I have owed, I do not know why some say it is loud, this is one reason why I purchased it and kept it because it is not loud, and it is the Lightest I have ever had.

It is so nice and a pleasure to use !! I bought the electrulux that is suppose to be quiet, NOT, this is quiet, and I hate loud vacums. This is the BEST HOOVER VACUM, I Love it, QUIET and LIGHT WEIGHT !!!! and no dust flying around

    • The upright is quieter than my old Hoover; the handheld seems louder because of the powerful motor, but it's tolerable because it's such a good vacuum. I wouldn't like it if it were any louder, but don't regret buying it.
