This vacuum SUCKS!!! (In a GOOD way)

This is by far the suckiest vacuum I have ever used...but I mean it sucks in a way a vacuum is supposed to suck...My carpet was horriblly dirty I vacuumed 3 times a day for 10 days straight and it was still picking stuff up...it changed the color of my carpet, kinda like a carpet shampooer is supposed to. The filter is easy to empty/clean, and me as a quite tall person, it is a comfortable height for me, and has enough range in the handle to lower enough for my wife whom is over a foot shorter than me. The clean/dirty light seems to be a bit inaccurate, but I expected that from the get go. I mean, really, how can a vacuum tell if it is picking upo dirt, ot if it is the carpet fibers being fluffed up. Though all those times I said I vacuumed, I waited for the light to say clean...but I could go back over after a few hours and pick more up (and no kids to kick stuff up.) I haven't had a chance to use the attachments much, but what little I did with them, they seem to work about as good as my shop vac out in the garage...which is good to me, cuz I have never had a vacuum with a hose attachment work as good as a shop vac. I love this vacuum and I have used Kirby's, Dyson's, and ElectroLux's.

Wonderful value for a great vacuum

I had my doubts when I ordered this vacuum to replace a cyclonic Eureka that I had been using, but I was pleasantly surprised. First of all, it was incredibly easy to put together...just two phillips head screws to secure the handle, put the attachments on board and you are ready to go. The exterior seemed very durable and aesthetically pleasing. The best surprise was when I actually turned it on though. The power was unbelievable!!! It also has a indicator to let you know when the carpet is clean or still dirty. The first time that I used the vacuum I was completely disgusted by what my older vacuum had left behind. This thing is a monster!! The only problem I have had at all is that on occasion when I let the bottom of the dustbin down, the assembly holding the bottom on at the hinge has come apart, but given that this is refurbished, I just figure that might have been an earlier issue or something. I would find it hard to believe that you could find a better vacuum for the price, or for that matter, for a hundred dollars more. It has to rival Dyson in every respect as far as cleaning power. Definite grand slam with this one!

Great Vacuum, but Heavy...

I gave this a 4 only because it is HEAVY! Other than that so far it is a great vacuum. It is certainly a lot quieter than the screaming demon that I had prior to this vacuum. I like the way you can just take out the hose from where it attaches and use it immediately..... there is no hooking up another hose, or stopping to re-configure..... just pops out and BAM! Then grab the tool that is conveniently attached to the vacuum in an inconspicuous way..... by that I mean they are on it, but sort of tucked away so that you don't catch the cord on them and then they pop off and get lost in the shuffle.... (like I have had experience with.) One thing that I still have to get used to is the push button on/off switch.... I am so used to the foot pedal that I try to shut this one off with it and end up knocking the vacuum over. (Actually quite funny to watch.) I am not sure about the CLEAN/DIRTY thing..... but I noticed that it makes me vacuum more and longer trying to get the light to change. LOL..... and then the kids like to vacuum for the same reasons! So that in itself is worth the money! Plus paying 1/2 price at that! I got my money's worth. (Just wish it was lighter) Oh... one last thing... I wish there was a clip to hold the cord up by the handle....I just have it wrapped through the handle to keep it up and out of the way. Hope this is helpful! (P.S. I am a real person!)
Great Vacumn It pickup so much dirt ,I have dog and cats and that means hair it does a wonderful job picking it up . Super power , really quit compared to my other windtunnel , empty it is much easier . all around I love my new cleaner .

Excellent Vac with more responsibilities

This vac has to be the most powerful I ever purchased. The thing that I see will allow this vaccume to last longer is that if you clean it on a regular then it will last longer. I normally just used to vaccume the carpet and just keep going but I see that in order for the vaccume to be here for sometime, taking ones time in clearing it out will allow the vac to be here for sometime. In terms of performance, literally it turned my plush rug into a brand new carpet. The device has some weight on it plus the vac is so powerful it pulls the vaccume forward so be prepared for that as well. The reason I chose the reconditioned model is that I just couldn't afford this vac as a brand new unit and when the recondition arrived it had a few marks on it like scratch marks but then again, I wasn't expecting a used item to be like new. The unit works fine in my eyes. I would recommend this vacumme to the individuals with the plush or very thick carpets just because it really gets down deep in there. IWhat the kids like is the sensor to tell you when the area is clean.

It is really refurbished

this refurbished vacuum cleaner has so many scratches. i was about to return it, but i was lazy to to pack and take it to the store. it works as described. but it is heavy and not as good as dyson. original price is about/over three hunderds dollar. it is not worth three hundreds dollars.
Needed a good vacuum on a budget, this unit works really well, great suction, bagless so no more bags to buy. I was a bit worried about buying refurbished - but it looks and works just like brand new. Extremely fast shipping.


i ordered this vacuum because of the price and the good reviews, it shipped pretty quickly and i went to get it from the store as soon as i got the email telling me it was available at the store. as soon as i got home i lugged it inside, opened the box and mentally prepared myself with the tedious task of assembling a vacuum, but to my delight it came together withing 3 steps, i only had to attach the handle, pop the screws in and stick the hose into its container. bravo! next i vacuumed, a little monitor tells you when the floor is clean and dirty, the vacuum is very powerful, a little loud but seems to move itself. emptying the container was simple, i didnt even have to look at the pamphlet and it picked up alot of dust and fur (i have a dog) that my other old vacuum missed. instructions on how to clean the filter were provided on the dust canister itself for added convenience. i have used this product at least 2 or 3 more times and am pleased with the results, sometimes it will miss a big piece of debris but if i change the level the vacuum is set at (low, med high, bare floor..only takes the push of a button) it resolves this problem. i have terrible luck with vacuums but am hoping this will prove to be an end to at least one of my domestic woes. this product is great so far because 1. easy to assemble 2. easy to use 3. consistently functioning to my satisfaction as a bonus it lights up and looks cool too.

Returned Vaccum

1. The screws were missing that connect the handle.  2. The wand part of the vaccum was very short, even with the hose connected. You would have to bend over in order to use on te floor. Also tool was missing but I found out they may come without it as they are reconditioned.  I called in and had a very nice conversation with customer service. After listening to my superficial needs she suggested that possibly the Hoover Air would be more what I was looking for. So I ordered one from her. I returned the other one the same day I received it. I was very disappointed that I had to pay the return shipping, which came to $51.00! I had no choice but to pay it. I was actually shocked at the return fee. I really felt it should have been a no charge return.  It was very very disappointing to say the least.  My brand new Air arrived yesterday and the Customer service person was right. I like this machine already!  I bought from Hoover because I purchased the Hoover Floormate Delux earlier this year and I dearly dearly LOVE it! Buying this machine prompted me to try Hoover for a new vaccum. 

Excellent vacuum-save money and buy refurbished !

This vacuum does a great job, and best of all it is much cheaper because it is refurbished. Has helped make my house much cleaner because it removes a lot more dirt than most vacuums. It is the vacuum for you if you need to pick up as much pet hair as I do. Couldn't be happier with my purchase !
