Rated 5 out of 5 by from A solution to my German Shepherd's excessive shedding. Finally a pet vaccum that works! We have all hardwood floors and a German Shepherd (aka German Shedder). I was fighting a losing battle with the fur, but now I have not only won the battle, but the war. The cord rewind is very cool and the attachments are easy to use and very effective.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Vacuum Ever I purchased this vacuum about 6 - 8 months ago. It replaced my old Shark, which I gave to my daughter when she moved out on her own and she is still using it. I have all hardwood and ceramic tile floor with the exception of one area rug under my table and one walk in closet with carpet. The vacuum has NO suction. I have taken it apart including removing the hoses, running a broom handle down the hose, which there was nothing in the hose, and still NO suction. The belt is brand new you can even still read the writing on the belt if that tells you how NEW this machine is. I am replacing this vacuum tomorrow but it will NOT be with another Hoover! I'm going back to being a Shark customer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well designed and rugged for home use UH70210 I bought this over 7 years ago and today is the first day I have had to replace the belt. Having kept it clean, washing the washable filter regularly and emptying it after each go through the house it is on to its second dog. It cleans my laminate floors, oriental carpets and wall to wall carpeting well. I only knew the belt needed replacing when I saw the brush stopped turning whenever I pulled back as I swept the carpets. Keep making them Hoover they make having Australian Cattle Dogs easy, at least in the hair removal task.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this vacuum back in 2010. I loved it from the minute I bought it. The suction is wonderful and never lets up. I have 3 dogs, 2 cats and a bird. I don't pick up my bird feathers like I probably should and I only vacuum once a week. This vacuum is a beast and cuts through dog hair and feathers with ease. I DO dump the container often (about 1-2 times per room) because it is on the small side and I also make sure that the little holes that lead to the filter stay clean. I have NEVER had a clog on my vacuum. It might be luck but I think it is because I have kept up with maintenance. The only issue that has recently occurred (within the last month) is with the plug, it does not want to stay out. I think that is to be expected though since the vacuum is coming up on three years old. I just put a hair clip on it and go with it. I still love my vacuum just like I did on day one and if something happens to this one I will buy another one just like it, if I find one available. I do and have recommend this product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works great but design flaws This Hoover works so well and i wish i could give it 5 stars, but there are just a couple of design issues i experience every time i use it. The Hose, even with the extension attached, is just not long enough and it tries to retract all the time, you really have to pull hard to use it. I am a homemaker and vacuum daily, as i have a cat i really looked to get the Dyson pet but went for this cheaper version as i had good experiences with hoover in the past. My brother-in-law has the dyson pet and the hoover is just as powerful as the dyson for a much more reasonable price. But as someone that likes to thoroughly vacuum, using the hose is a daily struggle. I also find it overheats every time i use it for 20 mins or more, it has an automatic shut off, so i have to stop and start frequently. As it really works so well, I would definitely recommend it to someone who'd rarely use the hose

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Terrible Canister Design for Multiple Shedding Pets I really want to love this vacuum - it's fantastic in every way but one of the most crucial for my household. It's powerful and picks up dirt, hair and debris like a champ. It's one of the only models I've had where the "bare floor" setting is effective - huge bonus for the option to turn off brush rotation! The handtools and hose accessibility are decent. It's easy to clean the vacuum itself. This could be phenomenal if the dirt cup design were different. I admittedly have multiple dogs that shed quite a bit. They also track a fair amount of dirt in from the yard. Vacuuming is literally a daily to every other day chore. Hair constantly ends up around the filter so I have to separate the top portion of the canister to remove it. Hair in the cup clumps in the very narrow channel it has, so it cannot "fall out" of the bottom as it is supposed to be designed to do. I have to manually pull it out. Even doing a very small area with only a little hair picked up, I still have to do this as it clumps even a small amount in a ball... or I have to bang the heck out of the canister, scattering dust and dirt into the air. The "no touch" feature is useless If you have pets with longer hair. I have two friends with this model and similar problems. I purchased on the recommendation of one of them, who later admitted she had the same issue. Very frustrating. The vacuum performs excellently ... unfortunately the design of the dirt canister makes it all but a completely unnecessary chore to use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thrilling Amazing suction! Pulls dust out of carpet superbly, including through the attachments! No wasteful bags. Easy-to-wash filter. Cord winds itself up like a charm. The only (small) drawbacks are that: 1) it's louder than other vacuums 2) the wand is short and thus not ergonomic. Even when you attach the Crevice Tool you still have to lean over while holding the wand or the end of the tube doesn't touch the floor at most angles.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Clogs alot I bought this vacuum quite a while back. I have pets so I thought that I'd give it a try. Not really impressed with it. It gets clogged very easily. Also doesn't seem to have good suction.

What is the noise level of this vacuum-is it real noisy?

Am considering purchasing this vacuum based on what I have read thus far; however, can you tell me the noise level of this Hoover?
Asked by: Anonymous
Initially no, it is not noisy however after 2 monthes it becomes noisy! My son is scared of vacuums and this noise only makes it worse. My mother has the same issue with this vacuum.

Can this be used on hardwood floors?

Are you able to switch over to use on hardwood floors, so that the brushes stop rotating? I bought the cheaper one and had to return it because it did not have this feature. If this does have this feature you should say so in your description.
Asked by: Zinsy
Yes, there is a switch that you push down and it switches right over.
