Rated 5 out of 5 by alisonmayne Amazing!
I bought this vacuum at a big box store because I had a gift card. I have 2 long haired dogs and I was using a much smaller vacuum that worked for both the hardwood and carpet I had. The second dog coming in changed the whole dynamic and I needed to upgrade the vacuum. We read some reviews and decided to try this vacuum and I'm so glad we did! This vacuum is awesome! The pet hair attachment has little rubber fins that pick up loose hair like a charm. It works so well on the couch cover and the duvet cover and it is super quick and easy. The crevice tool is really long, so it's actually effective and it has an extender which puts it right over the edge for me. We read some reviews that say this vacuum is loud, but once I saw how effective and easy it is, the volume did not matter at all. I actually never found it that loud. It goes from carpet to hardwood very easily and since the floor brush is so wide, it cleans more area at once and that is fantastic. I bought this 9 days ago and I've probably vacuumed 4 or 5 times because I'm so happy with the results.

I replaced another windtunnel that i had for 5 years and this new one is very good, does a great job. Light and easy to navigate thru my furniture. No bags and easy to clean retractable cord.

I needed a durable, lightweight vacuum cleaner that was easy to use, the canister is easy to empty and my boys actually will vacuum now. Great product for the price

Rated 4 out of 5 by JAF1960 Recommended with one caveat
I bought this vacuum after much shopping and comparing and my decision came down to the fact that Consumer Reports rated this particular model very highly. I got a great deal through JCP. When I went to assemble the vacuum the screw that attaches the neck to the unit was not the correct screw. It worked without the neck attached, the screw went into the threads correctly, but once the neck was into the slot the screw was not long enough to meet the threads. I called the 800 # on the vacuum and the young man that helped me was very courteous. He did acknowledge that occasionally there will be the wrong screw included and he is sending me a correct screw. In the mean while I used a screw from my own tool box, which worked beautifully. The vacuum lives up to everything that CR said and I really like it a lot. Easy to use and empty. So, as long as you are not taken by surprise by the possibility of a screw for a different model being in your delivered model... I can highly recommend this model. BTW, this is the 2nd Hoover I have owned, the last one worked beautifully from 1997-2012. Hoover is excellent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by cleaningkatie Would buy this brand and model again
I'm very happy with the Hoover Wind Tunnel Upright Vacuum UH70210. I am a cleaning freak and vacuum daily. We have a combination of hardwood floors lower level and carpet upstairs. We have three dogs who shed. This machine is capable of removing all the dog hair in the carpet and so far has never clogged or had decreased suction capabilities due to heavy use. Very impressed with the ease in emptying the canister too! The machine was easy to put together out of the box, has excellent suction, is lightweight and easy to maneuver. I recommend the electrical cord be longer and attached at the top of the unit rather than at the bottom. I also recommend a softer plastic material be used for the attachment hose...it is stiff and a little hard to manage. Overall I'm very pleased with this vacuum and will replace with another one if and when the time comes.

The brush roll on/off pedal broke on the third use and my vacuum began smoking.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Bjett SO FRUSTRATING!!
My husband bought me this vacuum a little over a year ago as a gift. It worked for all of one month. I am CONSTANTLY unclogging it after every use. I have taken it completely apart multiple times, checked the belt, checked the filters, checked the hose for clogs. Even after thouroughly cleaning, it works half par. It has no suction and shuts off after a few minutes. A short vacuuming for an apartment that should take 15 minutes takes multiple days of frustration trying to get the vacuum to work. It is junk and will be going to the dumpster. I refuse to buy another Hoover vacuum after this experience! Too much time, trouble, and frustration. It is pretty clear from other reviews that these complaints are not user errors, they are simply a result of terrible equipment. If I could give this review no stars at all I would. A new vacuum will be added to my Christmas list.
