It gave me the WOW factor VS my current vacuum cleaner!

Hoover WindTunnel Upright Vacuum UH72450

I have to start off by saying that I am directly comparing this to my current vacuum, the LG Kompressor. I have had it for 3.5 years, have gone thru 3 belts and one new roller..that thing is a beast! I bought that specific vac because I had 3 inside dogs and lots of shedding (it compacts the dirt compartment). Since I lost two of my dogs I have been wanting to downsize to something lighter and more maneuverable...and this Hoover fits that bill. First, it is super easy to put together, just snap on a few pieces and you are ready to go, no screwdriver required. It seemed a little flimsy compared to my monster LG, but it did an excellent job of picking up hair and dirt. There were actually times that it seems to suck into the carpet, this didn't make it hard to roll, you could just really see it working. I have plush wall-to-wall carpet and I know others seemed to have trouble with rugs, but I didn't have this trouble...even while vacuuming the throw rugs I have laying around on the hard flooring . I did have empty the canister half way thru the whole-house vacuum, but it is shedding season for my Border Collie and I can live with that. One thing I did love that it seems to self-adjust to flooring height on its one. This is very handy when going from carpet to hard flooring (and turning off the roller). I had to always adjust the carpet height before and that was a bit of a pain. One thing I didn't like so much was that you actually have to rotate the switch from flooring to the hose accessory. My LG did this automatically, but it truly isn't that huge of a deal. I will list the pro's and con's below as compared with my current machine.

Pro's:

Self adjusting flooring height
Turn brush roller on and off
Very light, very easy to turn
The vac head area is small and will fit under furniture nicely
You can really get the machine low to get under coffee tables without the head popping off the floor
Very long cord
No touch waste container empty
Nice edge-suction for vacuuming up against walls
The 2 in 1 tool is super nice and stays as one piece so you aren't losing parts
Reusable/Cleanable filter
Easy to put together
Fairly quiet

Con's:
Wish it had an auto-rewind cord rather than the standard loop-around holder
Have to hand switch it to hand tools
Brush seems a little small, I will have to clean the hair out each time I vacuum
It comes with an extra rotating hand tool brush but there is no place on the vac for it

So in conclusion, this vac will be a good substitute for my aging LG. I do love that it is the Hoover brand and I am assuming the belts will be available locally rather than having to order online.

  1. Have 1 1/2 " carpet in 3 rooms, whose condition required new suction. This vacuum, just out of the box April 17, 2013, does it for me and leaves nothing to be desired, as well as nothing superfluous involved. After vacuuming about 6 SQ YD, the container is filled to 1/3, something my Eureka LightSpeed Upright Vacuum, Bagless, 4700D, bought on March 19, 2010, left behind. The brush turns as fast as can be, the two settings for hardwood and carpet are easy to operate. The attachments work great. I especially love the way the wand is stored inside of the body and easily detached along with the handle for use of the brush, etc. Tilting and emptying it is easy. It's light, very low noise and swivels wonderfully. So, if you don't have any thin old rugs to vacuum, as the previous 2 reviews have denied its usability in such a case, you will find you are buying the most practical equipment for your buck.

  2. it's a fantastic vacuum well worth the price. Once you learn how to maneuver it's pretty easy to use and picks up everything leaving no dust behind. Although it is not required I empty the cup every time. It only takes seconds.

    A couple of months ago I was selected to try this Hoover Air Max vacuum, as well as a previous model of this vacuum. I was simply asked to take it from the box, assemble it (easy!), and use it on various floorings and on a couch. I must say, I LOVED everything about the vacuum, and was happy to see it is now being sold. It was easy to use, the swivel front was great, picked up well on both floors and carpets, and had great tools. I love the fact that the filter is washable, and I plan to order one based on my 'trial' version of this vacuum! I saw some reviews that stated it 'stuck' to thinner carpets, but I did not find that as a problem, although I only tried it on one length of carpet. The features were top notch, and Hoover is a brand I trust!

    My previous vacuum was a cheap Bissell that didn't have very good suction, clogged easily and was difficult to manuveur. This vacuum is obviously superior. It is lightweight and turns easily around furniture. The suction is so strong that you can really feel it when vacuuming. I have two dogs and a cat in an apartment, so this vacuum has made a huge difference in keeping the carpets looking nice.

    One thing I did notice about the vacuum that was odd is that it comes with an extra attachment that doesn't seem to have a place to go on the vacuum. If I am wrong on this please let me know. It's more of an inconvenience but doesn't take away from the performance of the vacuum. Unlike some of the other reviewers that seemed to have a problem with this on carpet, I haven't had any problem using it on my carpets and I think it works great.

    There is a lot to like in this Hoover vacuum cleaner. First, the way it bends to get under and around things - that ability addresses the main requirement in vacuum cleaners.

    Next thing is Easy Rinse Filter - that's just like a killer ap. No changing dusty bags or wondering when to change 'em. With this, you get immediate feedback as you can see the dusty junk pulled up. Seeing it makes the human brain want to get at more.

    The attachment lets us reach 15 feet to get at more things. Sucks up insects, no problem. It also has a 2-in-1 cleaning tool.

    All in all, it gets a lot of stars. It makes you want to take it up and down stairs - the biggest dread when using previous units.

    I recommend this vacuum cleaner highly. It does a great job.

  7. This is a great vacuum cleaner. It's light, maneuverable but still offers a lot of suction power and versatility. I've been using a Hoover WindTunnel T-Series Rewind Upright Vacuum, Bagless, UH70120 and it has served me well, with good cleaning power, too. But it is heavy, and after using the Air Pro for a while, I won't miss the T-Series's extra weight, especially since the newer Air Pro offers a few features to make it better. I especially love the way the hose attachment is built-in and easy to remove and use instantly.

    Despite the light weight, it does a great job on hardwood and carpets/rugs. As others mentioned, it can get a little tough to pull/push on thick pile rugs, but not impossible. It just take a bit more energy and effort. I like the fact that when you put the vacuum into its upright position, the brushroll stops rotating. It's a nice touch. The Air Pro also gives you the opportunity to switch between hose suction and floor suction, which the T-Series didn't. That way you get a lot of power to whatever tool you use. It's easy to empty as well. Though the process is exactly the same as the T-Series, the newer Air Pro seems to do a better job when emptying and seems to leave less dust in the air -- perhaps it's a different plastic material or perhaps it just doesn't stick so much to the canister's internal surface. I remember the T-Series needed to be emptied a lot and often.

    My wife jokingly suggested I knock off one star for the fact that this does not have a retractable cable (which we did love on the T-Series), but admittedly that would add more bulk and weight, even though I do miss that convenient feature.

    So, I'd definitely recommend the Air Pro, but the price is steep. Seeing as that T-Series can be had now for around $100 (or less) and this is over $200, the older model still does as good a job, but with the inconvenience of being heavier and not having such handy hose tools.
