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 4 out of 5 by from Amazing suction My old Kirby finally died so I was skeptical that I could find something adequate to replace it. The Hoover WindTunnel Max has much better suction that I expected. I found that I had to raise the beaters above the carpet a bit since the suction was so intense at the lower settings that I could hardly push it. Also, when using the hose to vacuum stairs the suction is so intense the hose shrinks up. Wow. I do wish they had made the fittings out of heavier plastic. They feel a bit flimsy. You can't bear down on the tube when it is extended--the joint can't take it. I was a bit concerned that I had to dismantle the beater attachment the first time I used it to clean out a wood chip that jammed the gears. All-in-all an excellent buy for the money and SO much lighter than that old Kirby!

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 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.
