    Can damage carpet when using attachments!

    I bought this vacuum after much research and hoped it would be a good investment. However, I immediately noticed that it is very LOUD. But my bigger issue with the vacuum is that it has damaged my carpet. When you use the attachments, the brush continues to spin. Even set at the second notch from the "hard floor" setting this caused deep grooved marks in my Berber carpet that I cannot repair. I contacted Customer Service about this issue and was told that there was nothing they can do about it. Don't buy this if you plan to ever use the attachments!!

    i chose this product because of consumer reports. it was purchased for use on area rugs and hardwood flooring along with a cat hair issue. very easy to assemble; 30 min tops. i find it hard to open the door to get to the filter bag, and the original bag sent with the vac is way different from the replacement. i haven't had to change the bag, but noticed this as i was looking it over. another review said to purchase the extra reach hose; at $31.19 i'm passing at this time as i don't see it's necessary. the hepa filters seem to make a good difference in keeping what ever is picked up in the bag. plus, it works well on hardwood/tile areas. regarding cat hair; it has done extremely well, and the attachment gets it off pillows. i was using an old kirby but this one so far has been money well spent. plus, i'm glad i didn't get the selfpropelled as this works like it already is! i'm giving all 5 stars, but keep in mind i haven't used it a lot, but am expecting many years of great service.

    I just got the Hoover Windtunnel Anniversary Edition and Love It! It arrived 1 day after I ordered it!!! It has a nice handle on it and it is light. I had another Windtunnel, but it was so heavy I hated to use it. Definitely order the extension cord, which you have to order separately; then you will be able to reach your ceilings, etc. It will take off on you when you start it up, so hang on! Make sure to turn the dirtfinder switch to H (High). It was easy to assemble, but they don't tell you how to put the hose handle on, make sure to snap the top notches on before the bottom piece snaps in. I love the Edger-It actually picks up the dirt along the edges without having to hook-up tools-yeh! It's a GREAT price for what you get. You can clean the filters with mild soap and water, so it isn't costing you money to replace them all the time. I always buy a 12 amp vaccum. I had bagless before and they are soooo messy, when you dump them out the dust scatters everywhere, bags do not do that, just pull out and throw away. It also has a place for your cord as you vacuum (cord clip) and a check bag indicator light. The handle has 3 positions, so you can get underneath beds, etc. It is loud, that is the downfall.

    My wife is very picky when it comes to vacuum cleaners. We are tough on them and go through about one per year. If it is really useless, I'll be buying another one before the end of the month. In this case, I think we found a winner. Useful features, well designed. Cleans both the carpets and the hardwood floors well. The wife is happy, I'm happy. The bag is a great feature that allows for rapid, easy maintenance. The light illuminates those dark corners. The single height control allows rapid transitions from wood floors to carpet. Powerful suction prevents dirt from being thrown around by the brush, yet the throw-down carpets are not being sucked up into the vacuum cleaner. The power switch on the handle is easily switched using your thumb. The long power chord minimizes the number of times you need to plug into another wall outlet. The unit is light enough to be carried up and down stairs. We even use this on the stairs. My 13 year old handles this unit with ease.

    I bought this vacuum 8 months ago after careful consideration of reviews online, as well as Consumer Reports. I have an average household with children, 2 cats, and a low-ish pile carpet due to dust allergies in the family. This Hoover Wind Tunnel model worked oh so well for the first 1-2 months. After that, I was unclogging it every time I went to use it. I had to pull it outside to unclog it every use because the clogs were so bad, they made huge messes-then the vacuum would not clean the mess after I unclogged each time! I replaced bags a 1/4 full. I finally called Hoover for a rerfund under warranty and they would not even talk to me without taking it to a service dealer. The service dealer also phoned Hoover, and Hoover refused to refund saying I could unclog it at home and I had the "wrong carpet"!!!!! There is nothing abnormal about my carpet! The warranty states "normal household use" - and only carpet fuzz and cat hair clogged it every time I used it! I am now stuck with a piece of junk and $160 loss. My previous $99 Hoover lasted 20 years! Very disappointed in the lack of customer service and lack of quality from Hoover.

    • A. Yes. A very nice cloth bag. However,my local warranty repair shop recommended that I discard the bag once it's full because dust is embedded in the cloth/paper and interferes with the cleaner's suction.They're probably correct but bag sellers make more money that way from selling bags. I've emptied mine several times each by hand and reused them for years.

    • A. This particular model is not self-propelled, but it seems like it is on hardwood floors. It runs with very little effort. I don't have carpet, so I can't attest to how it runs on carpet. Hoover does offer a self-propelled vac, but not this one.
