I bought this vacuum at a big box store because I had a gift card. I have 2 long haired dogs and I was using a much smaller vacuum that worked for both the hardwood and carpet I had. The second dog coming in changed the whole dynamic and I needed to upgrade the vacuum. We read some reviews and decided to try this vacuum and I'm so glad we did! This vacuum is awesome! The pet hair attachment has little rubber fins that pick up loose hair like a charm. It works so well on the couch cover and the duvet cover and it is super quick and easy. The crevice tool is really long, so it's actually effective and it has an extender which puts it right over the edge for me. We read some reviews that say this vacuum is loud, but once I saw how effective and easy it is, the volume did not matter at all. I actually never found it that loud. It goes from carpet to hardwood very easily and since the floor brush is so wide, it cleans more area at once and that is fantastic. I bought this 9 days ago and I've probably vacuumed 4 or 5 times because I'm so happy with the results.

Would highly recommend this vacuum, especially if you have pets. Very durable, great suction, retractable cord, easy to clean.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JAF1960 Recommended with one caveat
I bought this vacuum after much shopping and comparing and my decision came down to the fact that Consumer Reports rated this particular model very highly. I got a great deal through JCP. When I went to assemble the vacuum the screw that attaches the neck to the unit was not the correct screw. It worked without the neck attached, the screw went into the threads correctly, but once the neck was into the slot the screw was not long enough to meet the threads. I called the 800 # on the vacuum and the young man that helped me was very courteous. He did acknowledge that occasionally there will be the wrong screw included and he is sending me a correct screw. In the mean while I used a screw from my own tool box, which worked beautifully. The vacuum lives up to everything that CR said and I really like it a lot. Easy to use and empty. So, as long as you are not taken by surprise by the possibility of a screw for a different model being in your delivered model... I can highly recommend this model. BTW, this is the 2nd Hoover I have owned, the last one worked beautifully from 1997-2012. Hoover is excellent.

Its a okay vacume wish it had some more power and it was able to be broken down a little smaller so it would not take up most of my closet space.

Rated 4 out of 5 by cleaningkatie Would buy this brand and model again
I'm very happy with the Hoover Wind Tunnel Upright Vacuum UH70210. I am a cleaning freak and vacuum daily. We have a combination of hardwood floors lower level and carpet upstairs. We have three dogs who shed. This machine is capable of removing all the dog hair in the carpet and so far has never clogged or had decreased suction capabilities due to heavy use. Very impressed with the ease in emptying the canister too! The machine was easy to put together out of the box, has excellent suction, is lightweight and easy to maneuver. I recommend the electrical cord be longer and attached at the top of the unit rather than at the bottom. I also recommend a softer plastic material be used for the attachment hose...it is stiff and a little hard to manage. Overall I'm very pleased with this vacuum and will replace with another one if and when the time comes.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Suck it up Great Vacuum....when it works
This product served me for three years. Lifted pet hair from the carpet quite easily. Powerful vacuum. One issue was length of hose that was used to clean small areas. Not long enough. Today this machine died. Motor quit. Thought it might be clogged but not so. Won't be buying this product again. Sounds almost like planned obsolesence. Sorry Hoover no more money from this kid.

Rated 1 out of 5 by 4 Kids2 Dogs3 cats Why can't I get replacement parts!????
I've had this for a few years now and because everything is made from plastic, I need to replace the dirt cup. I have checked for months now and they are always out of stock. After repeated uses (which you have to empty the dirt out, right?) The latch has broken off, which means I am using duct tape to keep it closed until I empty it. I really like the vacuum, especially the rubber pet attachment which removes fur off the furniture quickly and easily.

I have been a hoover user for years. I was looking to replace a 20yr old Hoover wind Tunnel that I could no longer get parts or filters for. Since I have both a dog and 2 cats, I decided on this one. So far it has worked perfectly and seems to be keeping my carpet as clean as my last vacuum. I love it so far. Great suction power
