Hoover S3670 Anniversary WindTunnel Canister / Bagged / Windtunnel / Silver


Despite long carpet issues, the S3670 Anniversary WindTunnel handles well.

Excellent on hardwood and short carpet; Long extension wand

Bad on long carpet; Small dirt bag

Hoover U6485-900 Vacuum Review


Avg. consumer rating = 79/100 The Hoover U6485-900 Windtunnel Anniversary Vacuum Cleaner is a self-propelled, bagged upright with HEPA filtration. Many consumers are sold on the self-propelling feature and also report that their purchase was based on...

Self propel feature is good- Great suction- Very easy to assemble out of the box- Dirt finder feature is helpful- Not too expensive- Highly rated by Consumer Reports magazine

No retractable cord- Heavy vacuum – 21+ lbs- Vacuum hose is a little short- A few comments about the vacuum not being as good on hard surfaces (common upright complaint)

Many folks indicated that one should purchase the “extra-long flexible hose” for stairs as the onboard hose is short and lugging this rather heavy vacuum up stairs can be a chore. Also, like many vacuums today, there is a fair bit of plastic...

Hoover U5491-900 Windtunnel Anniversary Bagged Upright Vacuum Cleaner


Avg. consumer rating = 84/100 The U5491-900 is a bagged upright vacuum cleaner that is not too expensive and gets quite good reviews. It does not use a dirt-container like many of the bagless machines today, but instead uses a disposable bag. There is...

Light and easy to maneuver ; Not too expensive ; Powerful suction ; Many folks really like the fact that it is bagged

Loud (common complaint) ; Sometimes dirt sensor doesn’t seem to work ; The hose for the hand attachments could be a bit longer ; Hard to get under low furniture or beds ; Not as good on bare floors as it is on carpets

The Hoover U5491-900 also has HEPA filtration which is particularly popular with allergy sufferers. HEPA stands for High Efficiency Particulate Air and is a filter that removes 99.97% of all airborne particulates of 0.3 microns or larger that pass...

Newegg does it again! I got a great price too!

First the vacuum itself ; Great attachment, great suction, great on dog hair on the carpets , great on bare floors. You can turn off the *brushes* to do bare floors with a quick flip of the switch. Rolls around easy, long cord, hepa filter I could go on

Not really a total *con* but it has a LOT of plastic on it and I am just scared of breaking it. It works fine and doesn't seem to be an issue. All vacs I looked at are nowadays switching to plastic

Very happy with this Hover Vacum.

Easy to put together, light weight and motorized brush beater bar. The heavy dirt senor light is effective and handy. Was tired of my old vac not picking cat hair, and having to go back with a large tape roller to pickup all the hair it missed....

Hoover replacement HEPA bags/filters are not cheap, but they do a great job. Ordered 2x bag pack from (HOOVER HEPA TYPE Y B) and shipped to me for $16

powerful vacuum


Used a bagless vacuum before and was always a mess to clean. This vacuum is powerful and uses an excellent HEPA filtered bag. (Make sure you specify the HEPA bag and not the regular bag)...Finally, no mess!

Consumer review by: sujams (

Using attachments is dangerous!


I bought this vaccuum, the Hoover U 5491 900 hoping it would be a great Hoover product. I was very disappointed. The vaccuum does a poor job on hard surfaces. It just blows the dirt around. Using the attachments is a problem. The vaccuum is so...

Poor Design
