    Disappointing!

    By Kitten

    from Dallas, TX

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

    It's VERY loud, the mini vac attachment doesn't work most of the time, ditto on the self propeller and it's EXTREMELY heavy and cumbersome. An expensive piece of junk! I have owned Hoover's for years, yet this vacuum has cured me of ever wanting another Hoover product.

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

    I like most features about it. Have had it for a year and cannot release the air-powered hand tool so have never been able to use it. I am afraid to force it out and my hands are not very strong. How do I release it?

    Great machine

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

    I purchased this vacuum about 2 weeks ago. I am very impressed. I love how it has all the different attachments right in bored. Unlike other vacuums that have a "combo" tool that doesn't really work. The self propelled feature is great. Having back surgery pushing and pulling a vacuum was hard for me to do. The suction is great and gets all the mess up in one pass. Leaves beautiful carpet lines. Now for the few cons that I do have. The self propelled going in reverse is kind of loud. This is due to the wheels on the carpet. Not a huge complaint. The hose for above floor cleaning is really short. I wish they would of added a extended reach hose with this vacuum. And lastly I wish the cord was a bit longer. It says 35ft but doesn't seem to be. Over all great vacuum at a great value and helps with allergies!

    Hoover downunder.

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

    We live in Melbourne, Australia. 13 years ago, we purchased our USA made Hoover upright cleaner. It was a 240 volt model and has worked long and hard over it's lifetime.  Today, I stripped it down and found the  electric motor windings down to earth, many components  well worn and decided to consign the old workhorse to a decent burial in the vacuum cleaner graveyard. With no 240 volt equivalent Hoover model available here in Austarlia, we have just purchased our new Hoover Anniversary WindTunnel Self-Propelled Bagged Upright, U6485900 120 volt model direct from the USA. With our step down transformer, we trust we will get 13 years use out of our new Hoover upright too. Thank you from another satisfied Hoover customer. Tim O'Dempsey

    Great Vacuu

    By FloridaGirl

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

    I bought this vacuum as a Christmas gift from my husband because his health won't allow him to do any extensive store shopping and he isn't the kind of person that does on-line shopping so he told me to go ahead and get it which I did. When I received it at home I attached the handle as indicated and then gave it a test run. I really love the self-propelled part of this vacuum. I have purchased Hoover vacuums in the past and have always liked them but I never had a self propelled one. Because it is a Christmas gift I haven't really used it yet because I feel I shouldn't until after Christmas. I can hardly wait to use it. My old one still works but it isn't self propelled.

    I Love this vaccum, but...

    By Darryl

    from Falls Church, VA, United States

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

    I have gone through 5 of these over the last 3 years. I purchased one from a vacuum cleaner store and got a used one that was supposed to be new. I spent over $100 in repairs while I had this one. Then I purchased a brand new one in the box at Sears and ended up getting 3 others because of their incompetent repair service--I did not have to pay for the others, but it was an aggravation to say the least. Now the last one I got from Sears to replace the other broken one they could not fix is broke after less than 4 months. This is really a great vacuum, but unless I am just unlucky and keep getting lemons, they are not made very well at all.

    I love all the features on this vacuum! Self propelled motion helps greatly. Clean/Dirty indicated is a real plus. The bag quality is impressive. I could go on and on. Best vacuum I've had.

    Not what I expected from Hoover

    By AprilD

    from Spring Hill, Florida, United States

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

    I spent months researching which vacuum to purchase. Consumer Reports magazine rated the Hoover Anniversary Upright as one of their top picks. Three months into once a week use, I began having to either take the machine apart to put the roller drive belt back on from slipping off, or replace it completely. One year and four belts later I wish I had made a different choice for my home. Customer Care advised me that this was normal wear and tear. NOT what I expect from Hoover.

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

    I bought mine April 2009 and as of Nov 2014, I have had no problems with it.  I only replaced the belt twice.  It does a great job of cleaning, has strong suction from the sides also, and I like the red/green light that indicates when the area is clean.  I also like the filters.  MOST of all, I like the self propelled feature.  I have severe disc damage in my lower back, but I am able to use this vacuum
