    After 11 years, still going strong!

    Comments about Hoover Anniversary WindTunnel® Self-Propelled Bagged Upright:

    We bought this vacuum wen we bought our house in 2003. The pedal broke, the cord wore out, the cord holder fell off. Lol. The vacuum still ran great! We replaced the cord. My husband bought a Oreck dual cleaner team, it has no on-board tools. It has a separate hand-held machine instead. Because it uses  smaller motor for the tools, it would not pick up anything! We sold it. We finally got a new one and I looked for the same one because it worked so well. This is the best vacuum I've ever used! The lights for the "hidden dirt" work great! The bags are cheap and the oiginal filters to this vacuum were washed and re-used for 11 years! Excellent machine!

    Loud is good.

    Comments about Hoover Anniversary WindTunnel® Self-Propelled Bagged Upright:

    I own 2 of these wonderful machines. I bought a new one then I saw a refurbished one on a auction site for a very low price. I bought the refurb just to have for parts but as far as I can tell the new one won't ever wear out so I'll have 2 perfectly good ones for ever.  By the way the folks sniveling about the loudness need to understand why it's loud. It's loud because the motor is very, very powerful. The delicate, quiet ones won't do anything but just be quiet. Loud = power. Quiet = worthless.

    Too many problems

    By Eugene

    from Philadelphia, PA, United States

    Comments about Hoover Anniversary WindTunnel® Self-Propelled Bagged Upright:

    Not very old the vacumn would not move forward. Hoover had me take to a service center who made a height adjustment, and said it was fine. Took it home and same problem. Hoover said it was the belts, sent me the belts, I replaced, still didn't work. Hoover sent me to another repair location and I again told them that the self propel feature didn't work. Unit would just suck itself to a low pile carpet and was impossible to move forward or backward. Spent about a 5 weeks driving around, wasting my time and expense with this unit and it still don't work. Finally to Hoovers credit they are replacing the unit so I am waiting again. Hoover needs to get repair shops that know how to diagnose and repair the problems. The unit is still under warranty and these places charge Hoover but don't fix the problem. I suspect that they simply clean the debris and say it's OK. The problem is the self propel feature which is Hoovers fault, but I get to drive around to useless repair places, replace the belts, make calls and get nowhere. Doubt if I will buy a Hoover again.

    Very Disappointing

    By Herm24

    from Clarion, Pa.

    Comments about Hoover Anniversary WindTunnel® Self-Propelled Bagged Upright:

    Bought this self-propelled because the first one we purchased 5 years ago was so good. This one was sooo bad. Engine smoked and belt broke on first use ... didn't work well on thicker carpeting. After first repair - the unit broke again. Came back from repair and started smoking again. Going back - very disappointed in product and repair work.

    Some great features - Some not so great

    By Judy23

    from Gardnerville, Nevada

    Comments about Hoover Anniversary WindTunnel® Self-Propelled Bagged Upright:

    I have had my Hoover-Anniversary WindTunnel Self-Propelled Bagged Upright for almost eight months now and there are just some things that I am finding it hard to live with. The self-propelled feature does make vacuuming easier. I really like the way this vacuum picks up everything and leaves the carpet looking like new. The trouble is that it also pulls out carpet fibers that fill the bag up faster than it should and wrap around the brushes too. This can't be good for our carpet. I have it set on the highest level and that doesn't seem to help. I bought a lot of extra bags since I found out that I can only vacuum the house once before needing to replace the bag. The bags are quite expensive and, so far, I have spent almost half of what I paid for the vacuum on bags and I haven't even had it a year! A real problem is the noise level. We have to wear ear plugs when using the vacuum. The noise decibel level is terrible. I do like my vacuum, it does a good job but I think that it is harming my carpet and it it VERY expensive to buy a bag for each use.

    Disappointing

    By smallma

    Comments about Hoover Anniversary WindTunnel® Self-Propelled Bagged Upright:

    I have had this vacuum for several years and really dislike it. It's heavy (the self-propel broke) and the on-off switch is acting up now. It wants to tip when I use the attachments. Not a good design.

    Easy to Use

    By Maggiemae2034

    from New Haven, CT

    Comments about Hoover Anniversary WindTunnel® Self-Propelled Bagged Upright:

    I wanted a vacuum that was lightweight and easy to use, and I got it, but when it comes to picking up pet hair, it has failed me. When I run it over a carpet, it rolls the cat hair into little hairballs and blows them around,or leaves the hair on the edge of the carpet. I would appreciate any suggestions on how to remedy this.

    Great product...

    By Tish

    Comments about Hoover Anniversary WindTunnel® Self-Propelled Bagged Upright:

    I have owned 3 Hoover self propelled vacuums. Why 3 because I haven't found a better one. The first one purchased 20 years ago finally died. I had already purchased another. The third and final one we took to our vacation home. My dad purchased a Dyson animal and I still prefer my Hoover. Yes, belts are replaced, being self propelled. Never had any other problem. The anniversary edition, which I bought is no different other than color. Worked just like the others... It is heavy but worth it.

    I love Hoovers--just not this one.

    By Kandbfreekee

    from South Dakota

    Comments about Hoover Anniversary WindTunnel® Self-Propelled Bagged Upright:

    I bought this in December, and while all my other Hoovers have worked excellently--this one has been nothing but trouble! It is always getting clogged up and the belts are always somehow coming undone, etc. I am so disappointed in this certain type of vacuum!

    By carol47

    from Mesa, AZ, United States

    Comments about Hoover Anniversary WindTunnel® Self-Propelled Bagged Upright:

    I HAD TO TAKE THE FIRST ONE BACK IN 2 DAYS. THE SECOND ONE RUNS BUT EVERY 3 TO 4 TIMES IT BREAKS THE BELT. I HAVE NEVER BEEN SO RIPPED OFF IN MY LIFE. I HAVE ALWAYS BOUGHT HOOVER BUT WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER HOOVER PRODUCT. THIS ONE GOES IN THE TRASH  AND I RESEARCH FOR MY NEXT VACCUM. I ALSO BOUGHT THE HOOVER FLAIR BAGLESS TO USE IN THE KITCHEN. IT QUIT IN 3 MONTHS. I AM SO DONE!!
