I have had this vacuum for about three years. Looked at Consumer Reports which had this vacuum highly rated and owned a Hoover for about 12 years. (Should have kept that antique) After only a couple of months I had to take it in for repair because it ...

Tools, Suction immediately after it's cleaned

Excellent Bagless Self-Propelled


Over the years I have gone back and forth between upright vs. canister and, more recently, filter bag vs. bagless. Since we both have severe allergies, I decided to take the plunge and go for a bagless vac with a HEPA filter. I had been using a ...

"Dirt Finder" very useful, excellent suction, great accessory tools

No automatic height adjustment, cleanup is messy.

Hoover U6617-900 Windtunnel Bagless Self-propelled Upright


The problems I have with this vac are: 1. EMPTYING THE DIRT CUP * If you vacuum up a lot of hair - animal or human, and especially long hair - you will most likely have to pull it out of the chamber with your hand at some point. * When you spin ...

COVERED ON-BOARD TOOLS ; Self-Propelled ; Auto Brush Shut Off ; Decent Suction

Don't buy this vacuum...after 3 years repairs cost more than vacuum


Original cost was reasonable approx. $275

Replacement parts cost more than vacuum after 3 years, 2 rooms with carpet

Never Hoover Again


My first vacuum (20 years ago) was a Hoover and I loved it. It lasted almost 15 years and when it finally died, I went right out and bought another Hoover. It was not so great and I needed a new one in 3 years. Still loyal, I bought the Hoover ...

handy attachments

frequent breakdowns, inconsistent performance, a lot of money for a poor performer

Dr. Jekyll, Mr. Hyde


It started out as a passionate love affair. I couldn't wait to vacuum with my new Windtunnel. It was so powerful & made me feel like I had accomplished wonders with all the stuff it picked up. I had "researched" which vacuum I would buy quite ...

Worked first.

Not a long term investment. Hoover, you should be ashamed of yourself.
