The vacuum has good suction, but most new vacuums do. I got this on line- store pick up. My vacuum died and I had promised to clean the office the next morning, I had to get a vacuum! There was not one available to see hands on so went on the description. I was swayed to this one because it advertised a floor setting that blocked the debris from shooting out the back of the vacuum, sounded good. It works fine, I like that function, HOWEVER There is no "stop" on the handle between all the way up and all the way down. A stop between would be great. I never had a vacuum that didn't do that. Nothing about that in the description. Makes it difficult to tip the vacuum when I have to roll over cords or edges of throw rugs and runners, have to bend all the way to the floor almost. I clean an office, lots of cords on the floors.
The edge wand is a joke, very short, about 12 inches and in order to use it I have to stoop way over or get on my hands and knees. There is no extension tube to help. All my other vacuums have had an extension tube so you can vacuum the edges pretty much standing straight. It's tough on the back! The bagless system is good, easy to empty. The cord is shorter than on my other vacuums, again, inconvenient, have to unplug and plug in room to room, I added an extension cord, helpful but not the best solution. I haven't bought a hoover in years, have used another brand. After I cleaned the office, my home and a neighbors home with this vacuum the day after I bought it, I had had enough. I had to go out and buy another vacuum to suit my needs. Will never buy a vacuum on line again. Have to see it, try it in the store then decide. I did go to a Walmart store to have a hands on when I got a second vacuum but could get nobody to help. The vacuums were tied down to the shelf so I couldn't test the "stops" of the handle or see the backs of the vacuums or the on board tools, as the tools were not displayed with the vacuums. This vacuum is OK if all you want to do is vacuum the floor, not so hot for edges or having to tip it to go over throw rugs or the like. A waste of money for me. I have not used it since the first day.
