camera buy 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.
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
Easy to put together
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.
