Rated 5 out of 5 by from the power I bought this same machine several years ago when it first came out. I have owned bagged Windtunnel vacuums for at least 25 yrs. I have tried the Dyson and the Shark both bag less and they don't clean as well as the Windtunnel. I was tickled when the self propelled came out. I gave an older model to my daughter and she has been using it for 18 years. They just don't quit. I have 5 dogs, 2 cats and in the past pet birds. Oh did I mention we have North Carolina dust... I lived in Fl most of my life and I believe I would much rather deal with Fl sand rather than clay dust. My Windtunnel has never let me down and there is no babying this vacuum. The belts and agitator brush need replacing when worn. But that is just maintenance that keeps my machine working strong. So I just bought another Anniversary Self Propelled for my plant room. I am sure I will have a great vacuum cleaner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE THIS VACUUM! I've had a bagless vacuum for many years. I'm not sure why I switched over. But, I absolutely HATE them! They're dirty, time consuming and just a major pain! I've wanted to go back to a bagged vacuum for a long time. I finally just decided one day that I had had enough with the mess and hassle of my current one. I have cats and a parrot and there is always hair and bird food on the floor. I'm constantly cleaning up after them and it doesn't take long to fill a bagless. I got online and started researching. This vacuum had so many good reviews and it had features that I liked, so it was easy to make this decision. I had forgotten how well a real vacuum works. The suction is strong. It has so many features. The dirt indicator lights, the self propel action, the height level that takes it flat so you can get under beds and my coffee table is amazing! But, for me the best feature hands down, is the BAG!! I will NEVER own a bagless vacuum again! I just love it! :0) I will definitely be a Hoover customer from now on...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very GOOD CLEANER!! I think this is one of the better cleaners on the market and a great value. We did a lot of research before replacing an older Hoover WindTunnel, we decided buying another Hoover because of the features, past performance and value. A good rugged all around cleaner used on multiple surfaces putting the attachments to good use

Rated 5 out of 5 by from hoover and customer service I, like other reviewers, bought his vacuum based on consumer reports testing results. I, also like other customers had problems with the unit. I have purchased two of these units since approximately 2003. I had the same problems with both of the vacuums. The first unit, I figured, was just a manufacturing problem. I had the exact same problem with the second unit. The problem seems to be the mechanism that holds the handle in the upright position. I have not read other reviews that state this problem. The problems I had had nothing to do with the suction aspect of the machine. This vacuum is excellent at cleaning. the suction on this machine is very strong. The tools are convenient to use and store easily on the vacuum. I gave extra stars for the customer service I received from Hoover. I contacted Hoover, and within a short time a representative reached out to me. Hoover was very anxious to make things right and I applaud them for doing so. I recently received a new vacuum which is performing as well as I expect. Thank you Hoover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! This is my second Windtunnel vacuum. The first one I managed to wear out and it worked so good, it seemed a shame not to get another one just like it. I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a bagged unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Vacuum on the Market I am a cleaning maven and I have tried all the major vacuum brands out there and this Hoover wind tunnel model is the BEST ever. It's powerful and beats my friend's expensive Kirby any day of the week. I love the hose attachment as its easy to use and have great suction. The upholstery attachment works very well and the vacuum is light enough to maneuver easily, yet heavy enough to feel like it's not made of junk. It works extremely well on my wood and tile floors as well! I just love this vacuum. I have bought 3 of them; one for my garage and outside courtyard, one for my second story and one for downstairs. My housekeeper really should be the one writing this review because she agrees it's her favorite vacuum of all of her clients' vacuums and that says a lot! Worth every penny of what you pay and not sure why it's so hard to find this model recently!

I am ready to order this vacuum. Does it come with any bags? Also what bags do I buy as replacements.

Asked by: Coll
Hi Coll! The WindTunnel Self-Propelled will come with one bag. The bag should be replaced every 1-2 months depending on usage. This model takes any Hoover Type Y bag. We hope this helps! ~Kenya, Hoover Customer Care
