Rated 5 out of 5 by Riccio Great if you have pets!
I had a lighter weight Hoover Wind Tunnel, and got a promo to buy this model at a really GREAT price so decided to go for it. Right out of the box, it was immediatly apparent that this was a heavier duty unit. Easy to assemble, lots of nice 'bells and whistles- really like the fold down handle and the retractable cord - and it's about 8 ft longer than my previous Hoover which is really helpful - not having to run around changing from power outlet to power outlet as you work.. Now here's the reason you buy a vacuum - suction power. Decided to give my living area a once over with the 'old' Hoover (which I thought was just great and did a good job) and then follow it up with the new one - this one - and was honestly AMAZED at how much more dog hair and dirt this vacuum pulled out of the carpets - right after vacuuming with my old Hoover vacuum. That said - it is pretty heavy, and takes more effort to use it - but - totally worth it for the results. Highly recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Michael I Very happy!
Prior to purchasing the Hoover, we only had a stick vac. We have hardwood floors throughout the house, so there was never a need for much more. Then we rescued are two doggies, and so began the daily battle with dog hair. Any rug, couch, pillow, etc. was covered, along with tumbleweeds of hair floating around the floor. So far we are really pleased with the Hoover. We could never get anything hair free, and our couches were also a chore. Since we've gotten the Hoover, we can actually get the rugs and floors hair free. The couch has still been a chore. The hand tool works well, and I venture to say that it's truly the first time we've gotten that much hair off the couch. But the tool itself could be a little stronger, not sure if it's suction or the strength of the blades. We bought the Hoover on super sale, so for the price we purchased it for, it really can't be beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by QuiteByte So far I love it
You know your getting old when you get excited about a new vacuum.....lol I purchased this vacuum as a replacement for my old very expensive cyclone vacuum. I love how much more suction this vacuum has. When i take it onto a flat floor, the suction is so well that it can suck down onto the floor it sticks. The better-bar works so well that you can see when I have been on the carpet. I live with my wife and two girls so I was cleaning hair out of my old vacuum every time I used it. I am not sure why, but I have used this vacuum four times now and the bar still looks clear. I think one of my favorite options so far is the auto rewind on the power cord. My back often hurts so I often would just pick my old vacuum up and set it on my bed to wind the cord. Now I can just use my foot to push down the lever and the cor auto winds into the bottom.

I I recently purchased my Hoover Wind Tunnel Max Pet Plus Multi Cyclonic Bagless Upright and received it about a week ago. I have 4 full blooded German Shepherds & they shed all the time. I've used this vacuum twice and so far I love it. I knew we weren't getting all the dog hair up with the other vacuum plus it kept giving us problems so it was time for a new vacuum. I love how you can use it on hardwood floors, carpet, your upholstery & has an extention so you can suck up sidereal webs & stuff like that in the ceiling, corners, etc..... After I used it my rug looked almost new. I like how you can wash the filter & compartment that that dirt goes in but I'm working is there a way you can clean where the rolling thing is because I pulled off a lot of dog hair & stuff stuck up in there & if I'm able to keep it cleaned I feel it will last a lot longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LaurieD19 Amazing Suction!!
So far so good - I haven't had it very long. The first time my husband used it I knew it was a gem when I could see everything the Dyson had missed over the years filling up the cup quickly. I can't even describe the difference. Mind you, the Dyson is almost 8 years old now, but it never seemed to work this good and we were always disappointed in parts on it that wore out quickly. Do you see the lines in my picture? See the dirt filling up the cup? That's 2/3's of the front room rug when we normally use a Dyson and thought it was picking up dirt. Obviously it's just been moving it around all these years. So disappointing on the Dyson, and we got a great deal on this Hoover. So excited so far!

Rated 5 out of 5 by FranSea Picks upmore than our old vacuum - for sure
I've used this swice. It was easy to assemble and I'm liking all of the attachments. We have a cat with long black fur and a dog and white carpets... This cleaned up way better than our other vacuum. I wish the cord was on the opposite side. This seems like a lefty's vacuum. Or maybe I just got too used to having the cord on the left.

Rated 5 out of 5 by klwood2000 This thing sucks! (in a good way)
We purchased this model on special to replace a 7 year old Hoover that we loved, but is starting to fall apart. We have a dog, 3 cats, 3 kids and various other creatures, hence the PetPlus model choice. My wife decided to try out the vacuum on a wool rug we had in our living room. The prior vacuum cleaned pretty well. This one pulled out a solid 2 containers worth of material (various animal hair, broken wool fibers, dust, dirt, etc). She was very impressed. The only complaint is with the wand attachment. We have wood/tile floors in the majority of our house, so use the wand attachment all the time. We found the wand attachment a little short and will bother your back over time. She also said it was short a couple of attachments compared to our old vacuum. Not missing, just never included as part of the package. We would buy again, but these last two items diminish the overall view of the vaccum.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Katie K Bye bye pet hair!
I had been searching for a vacuum for quite some time that met my price point and extreme pet hair removal needs. I have two cats that I have developed an allergy to so vacuuming is a constant must. This one does the trick! The cord is extremely long and retractable which is a great feature. The hose attachment is very flexible and long. I was blown away by the sucking power and it does a great job on my bare floors too. The only and I mean only negative thing I could say about this vacuum is it is very heavy. If you are a frail person that would need to carry this up and down the stairs then I would not recommend it. I am very happy with my purchase and am still impressed after a month of using this product.
