Rated 2 out of 5 by from Design Flaw I bought a Windtunnel Max in November 2016 as a replacement for an earlier version of the same product. We use it mainly on tiled floors for picking up cat litter! The old MAX worked really well, but the new one lacked the suction to pick up the litter. We took it to a repair shop and they replaced the main housing under warranty. It didn’t cure the problem. I put the old and new MAX machines side by side and realized that the new one sat higher than the old one, reducing the suction effect on hard floors. Upon further examination, I discovered that the new MAX has bigger front wheels making the front of the machine sit about ¼” higher than the old MAX. I was able to exchange the wheels between the machines so that the new MAX would sit lower. That cured the problem and the new MAX with the old front wheels now does a great job picking up cat litter on tile floors! That means there is a design flaw in the newer version of the Windtunnnel MAX Model # UH30600.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great vacuum with wonderful features and a very good price. I am very happy with my new Hoover vacuum! I decided to go back to a vacuum with a bag because I hated the mess of emptying a bag less vacuum. The features on this model are very nice: the electrical cord is longer than on my Dyson. Also the attached hose for using the dusting brush is flexible and stretches to reach high areas. This is another feature that is much better than on my Dyson. The on/off switch is in a very good location on the handle. The suction power is great. The height adjustment works well too. I have everything from bare floors to a medium plush carpet in my home and the vacuum worked great on everything. Noise is about the same as most other vacuums I have had. My only negative comments are: the light is useless, because it is located too high to even light up the floor. Also I don't like the dusting/upholstery brush. I use mine to dust the walls in my log home and the bristles are too short. I solved this problem by buying two additional brush attachments with longer, softer bristles at an online site. I almost forgot to mention the power attachment is awesome, it works great on my stairs and upholstered furniture! Over my almost 40 years of marriage I have had several vacuums- everything from a canister to a Rainbow (that collected the dirt in a container of water), to bagged and bag less machines. I do believe this is the best vacuum I have ever owned and I still can't believe the great price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This vacuum is simply amazing! I vacuum almost every day because we have two inside dogs. We have a lot of fur - on the couches, on the carpets, and on the tile. I chose Hoover because I have a bagless T-Series, but it is starting to pick up the dog smell. I started looking for a bagged vacuum because I've never had a bagged machine pick up a permanent smell. This vacuum far exceeded my expectations the moment I turned it on. The suction is incredible. The hose is super long (I think it would be great for stairs). The vacuum is not self-propelled, but it seems like it. The brushroll turns off and on so it can be used effectively on hard floors. I highly recommend this vacuum. The only thing I would change is the place the cord comes out of the machine. It comes out of the bottom, but I prefer for my cord to come out of the top.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect replacement This was a replacement for a twelve year old vacuum that quit working. We wanted a replacement that was exactly the same and this vacuum was perfect. It has more power than our old vacuum and is as easy to use and push over our carpets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent vacuum cleaner! I bought this vacuum because I wanted to switch back from bagless to bagged.  This vacuum is AWESOME!  It's incredibly powerful.  The brushroll can be turned off for floor cleaning.  The HEPA bags have excellent filtration.  There's not one sign of dust in the bag compartment or on the filters.  If you buy this vacuum, which I highly recommend you do, you should know two things:  1.  It's HEAVY (like Kirby heavy), but how often does one lift the vacuum cleaner unless you have stairs?  2.  Be prepared to buy bags...often.  The bag lasts me about 2 weeks.  It's so powerful they fill up fast.  Also, although I've completely filled up each bag I've put in this vacuum, the check bag indicator has yet to turn red, so you do have to check the bag every so often.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from VERY disappointed I did a fair amount of research before purchasing this vacuum. Supposedly it had high ratings! However, as others have stated, it clogs with dust between the plastic and the roller. I called customer service and explained the issue. They said it was not a product defect, and not covered under warranty. I could still use the vacuum since there was no hazard of shock or fire. They would send me a handy "clean out tool" so I could take the vacuum apart after each use and clean out the dust clog! I am sorry -- but I have a different definition of a product defect than they do. If a vacuum that is supposed to have excellent suction has two of the three suction channels clog and you have to take it apart to clean it out after each use, THAT IS A PRODUCT DEFECT! I asked the customer service person I spoke with if she purchased a vacuum that had this issue, would she consider it a good product, or one with a defect? She skirted the issue despite a few attempts to get an answer. Hoover says they stand behind their products. Well, it sure does not seem that way. I won't buy another Hoover.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Vacuum Great vacuum. Picks up cat hair very well and is very versatile - going from thick carpet to hardwoods is a breeze. It is a little heavy but not nearly as heavy as my other vacuum (which we nicknamed the beast due to it's heavy weight and hard maneuverability - it's like wrestling a polar bear). It is still light enough to use on the stairs and the long hose makes it even easier to vacuum without having to pick up the whole vacuum to get to the top of the stairs. I prefer a bagged vacuum (much easier to empty than trying to clean out a bagless model) and this one is very easy and simple with just a push of a button. I would definitely recommend this vacuum.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hoover Only Hoover vacuums all the way since the days of the early 80's. Nevertheless, the manufacturing process has definitely changed now that cheaper quality parts are being used; not necessarily a bad thing, either. But just like many other products, quality manufacturing is not the same as many years ago. Hoover is no exception. Three pets make for frequent vacuuming, and I bought this for its ability to clean both carpets and hardwood floors quickly. Going from bagless to bag vacuuming is much easier to handle. It is one step I do not want to deal with. The suction is very good (a brand new machine should be great); the chord length is sufficient, and this machine is relatively quiet. The roller suspension is key for not scattering dirt & debris.
