Hoover's cheap junk - I have to have the HEPA


We read Consumer Reports article and it said the attachments really had great suction (or did it just say it sucked?). Sorry, some puns need to be put out there. I am 100% disabled, on morphine, a ventilator, oxygen and 19 prescriptions at the ...

HEPA for air in and out. Nothing else. Costco helped us a lot.

Cheap plastic, bad warranty, 800 number worthless, see 5 gripes.

Trust me, I have owned 30 vacuum cleaners in the past. I'm in the area rug business and I finally tore this pile of junk apart to try and repair the on/off switch which stayed on regardless if you switched it off. We had to plug it in and out to turn...

What's the point? Read the review.

Please, I'm too tired to rip it anymore.

Plastic piece of junk


I researched looking for a 'bagged' wind tunnel type of vacuume and found this one for around $145. At first it worked beautifully! Then, the on/off switch began to stay in the ON position. I took it apart and repaired it several times, then just gave ...

Product Specifications

Perfect for deep cleaning without excessive strain, the self-propelled Hoover WindTunnel Ultra upright takes charge of its own locomotion both coming and going. In addition, Hoovers WindTunnel technology creates a powerful double air path for maximum suction and cleaning. The vacuum even provides feedback on cleaning progress with the Embedded Dirt Finder--a feature that scans the floor for debris, signaling you if theres still dirt to be picked up. You can operate the Dirt Finder on a regular setting for your routine cleaning or on a high setting for your deep-cleaning sprees. The WindTunnel Ultra is designed for both bare floors and carpets, with a 15-inch cleaning path and three adjustable nozzle heights to accommodate variation in carpet depth. Dirt collection is bagged using Hoovers Microfiltration system, and a helpful indicator signal keeps you posted on the bags status. A HEPA filter assists the bag, trapping 100 percent of dust mites and 99.98 percent of ragweed and common grass pollens. The vacuum comes handsomely equipped for attachment cleaning with a stretch hose, two extension wands, a crevice tool, an upholstery tool, and a dusting brush all on board. (The Dirt Finder does not work with the attachments.) The most rigorous attachment is a powered hand tool with its own rotating brush roll--great for carpeted stairs and durable upholstery. Other useful elements include quick-release cord hooks, a carrying handle, a headlight, and a view window over the brush roll. Hoover covers the machine with a one-year warranty.
