Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Vacuum on the Market I am a cleaning maven and I have tried all the major vacuum brands out there and this Hoover wind tunnel model is the BEST ever. It's powerful and beats my friend's expensive Kirby any day of the week. I love the hose attachment as its easy to use and have great suction. The upholstery attachment works very well and the vacuum is light enough to maneuver easily, yet heavy enough to feel like it's not made of junk. It works extremely well on my wood and tile floors as well! I just love this vacuum. I have bought 3 of them; one for my garage and outside courtyard, one for my second story and one for downstairs. My housekeeper really should be the one writing this review because she agrees it's her favorite vacuum of all of her clients' vacuums and that says a lot! Worth every penny of what you pay and not sure why it's so hard to find this model recently!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE THIS VACUUM! I've had a bagless vacuum for many years. I'm not sure why I switched over. But, I absolutely HATE them! They're dirty, time consuming and just a major pain! I've wanted to go back to a bagged vacuum for a long time. I finally just decided one day that I had had enough with the mess and hassle of my current one. I have cats and a parrot and there is always hair and bird food on the floor. I'm constantly cleaning up after them and it doesn't take long to fill a bagless. I got online and started researching. This vacuum had so many good reviews and it had features that I liked, so it was easy to make this decision. I had forgotten how well a real vacuum works. The suction is strong. It has so many features. The dirt indicator lights, the self propel action, the height level that takes it flat so you can get under beds and my coffee table is amazing! But, for me the best feature hands down, is the BAG!! I will NEVER own a bagless vacuum again! I just love it! :0) I will definitely be a Hoover customer from now on...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Hoover Winner Having used a Hoover self propelled sweeper since 1985, I was so very pleased to find a replacement for my tired one. It is even easier to use and has the attachments on board. I am 82 and the self propelled feature is as asset to my living alone.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Shag Rug Performance is Poor I just received this vacuum cleaner to use on a shag rug. I bought it because I already have one at my other house and it works great. At my other house where I am using this one the vacuum cleaner replaced an Oreck with no carpet height adjustment. It was very difficult to vacuum the shag rug even though the Oreck is much lighter. My thoughts were the self propelled feature and carpet height adjustment would make vacuuming the shag rug much easier to vacuum. I just tested it and it is marginally better than the Oreck. The Oreck really struggled and I know the brush belt was overheating. This Hoover model was also struggling but not as much. I had the carpet height adjuster and high and the self propelled feature on. If you are looking to use this vacuum cleaner on a shag rug I say move on and keep looking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from hoover and customer service I, like other reviewers, bought his vacuum based on consumer reports testing results. I, also like other customers had problems with the unit. I have purchased two of these units since approximately 2003. I had the same problems with both of the vacuums. The first unit, I figured, was just a manufacturing problem. I had the exact same problem with the second unit. The problem seems to be the mechanism that holds the handle in the upright position. I have not read other reviews that state this problem. The problems I had had nothing to do with the suction aspect of the machine. This vacuum is excellent at cleaning. the suction on this machine is very strong. The tools are convenient to use and store easily on the vacuum. I gave extra stars for the customer service I received from Hoover. I contacted Hoover, and within a short time a representative reached out to me. Hoover was very anxious to make things right and I applaud them for doing so. I recently received a new vacuum which is performing as well as I expect. Thank you Hoover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! This is our 2nd Hoover Windtunnel. Our first one we simply wore it out and when it came time to replace it we looked at other brands but came back to the Windtunnel mainly because it is self-propelled and easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A real work horse! I bought my first Windtunnel Self-Propelled vacuum about 13 years ago. When my son got his own place a year later, I gave him my vacuum and bought a new one. Two months ago, the agitator brush wasn't turning well after I put on a new belt. Since the machine was about 12 years old, I decided to get a new one rather than getting it repaired. After I assembled the new vacuum, I thought I would put another new belt on the old vacuum. It works like new again! It turns out that the first belt I out on was the wrong one. I don't know how long it's going to last but I have a brand new one to take over as soon as it 'calls it quits'. There are two features that I love about this machine; 1) self-propelled, and 2) HEPA. When pollen season comes, my sinuses appreciate the clean, filtered air after the floors have been cleaned. And, at 67 years old, I appreciate the self-propelled help around the house. It's almost fun to vacuum! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Hi Coll! The WindTunnel Self-Propelled will come with one bag. The bag should be replaced every 1-2 months depending on usage. This model takes any Hoover Type Y bag. We hope this helps! ~Kenya, Hoover Customer Care

Answer: 
Yes, the vacuum came with one bag. I haven't had to buy replacement bags yet, but the bag it came with is a Hepa Type Y so that is what I will purchase.
