Good suction; not for bare floors
Comments about Hoover T-Series Windtunnel Upright Vacuum:
This vacuum had great suction -- the week that I had it. I have bare floors. I saw that you couldn't turn off the roller brush when I bought the vacuum, but since it had settings for bare floors, I thought it wouldn't be a problem. The first time I used it, I noticed that little bits of trash were hitting my shins. I can't really use a vacuum that spits trash at me, but if you have carpet, it might work great.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Checked out Consumer Report recommendation
from Las Vegas, NV
I am glad I read the report and got the Hoover that I am loving to use. Very easy to put together. Love the way the old rugs nap fluffed after using it. It worked very well on hard tile floors as well.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Fatal flaws in engineering doom this vacuum cleaner
The design team for this vacuum cleaner should simply be fired. It has so many basic engineering flaws that prevent reliable long-term use. There is a "crook" in the plastic attachment coming out of the roller suction (and before the flexible hose) that catches pet hair and soon clogs the hose. Even when this crook is cleared the hose itself was so crammed with pet hair (maybe from the way the accordian hose is designed) that that also gets clogged (so badly in fact that we had to use a broom handle to ream out the hair after we detached the hose). Suction may initially test sufficiently but over time the suction on this vacuum cleaner seems to diminish even with maintenance of the parts. Bottom line: You should not have to disassemble and clean the hose parts after a few uses. If you have pets, especially, this vacuum cleaner is not for you.

Just got it today. Very easy to assemble, price was reasonable. Did price match at Best Buy because I like their warranty.
Excited but need to test it over time
By Chigger Lick
I just got my new Windtunnel bagless upright. Pretty easy to assemble. Good clear instructions on assembly and use. Shocked at how much it picked up in one small area! Delighted at its power. Don't even mind the ugly color! Now, if it will just last a good long time...
upholstery tool is a joke
from Northwest Washington
I love most things about this vacuum, but the upholstery tool keeps losing suction. I've cleared out any blockages, made sure the belt is not hindered, cleaned the brush section - nothing helps. I've now gone through 2 tools! Disappointed in this feature. Vacuum is less than a year old.
Well made, easy to clean, RETRACTABLE LONG CORD!
from Waynesboro, PA, United States
This is a great vacuum for the money! All plastic, lightweight, bagless, easy to clean and wash and best of all, a long retractable cord. I don't know where this was made but four years ago we bought a basic well made in America cleaner...no accessories. The bags cost what we pay for a decent meal for two at Ruby Tuesday's. And it was heavy and didn't pick up. Our new Hoover almost runs itself, like our self propelled mower. And the "pet furniture" attachment is good, although if you sink it into the furniture too much, the motor in the attachment suits. That, slowdown, and the fact that the hose is short and just hangs on the back with nothing to secure it to, are the reason for a four, not a five.
Worst vacuum I have ever owned
We bought this vacuum less than a year ago and while at first I thought it was doing a good job, I could see the amount of pet hair in the cannister, it has simply turned out to be a headache. The contents in the cannister do not rotate around when on so there is no suction. The attachment tools have NEVER worked, can't even suction up a piece of fuzz. When I hold the tool to my hand I dont even feel suction. We literally kept our old broken vacuum (the bottom rotator belt snapped but attachments worked fine) so we could use those attachments since this one was useless. When I vacuum my bare floors I can visibly see the vacuum spitting dirt backwards towards my feet. I am trying to clean my house before we move out and there is a lot of visible dirt on the floors from the movers...yet I see it just being spewed around and very little is getting picked up. When I turn off the vacuum, if I move it I can see a nice little pile of dirt and debris that was rotating around the brush but not getting picked up. I was going to donate this to Goodwill but I think it better belongs in the trash. The one redeeming part was the retractable cord, never had a problem with it getting stuck and not going all the way in like other vacuums I have owned.
Great deep carpet cleaner
from Maryland, United States
I bought this vac. 2 years ago at Home Depot. I'm very pleased with the deep cleaning of carpets .
Joy to use!
from Marietta, GA
I'm a senior and was reluctant to buy the wind tunnel after years with a cannister. What a pleasant surprise! This is a powerful, easy to use machine.
