As a housekeeper this was my vaccuum of choice
May 11, 2017
Ive used hundreds of vaccuum models, and this is hands down the best value for your money purchase. This vacuum has powerful suction, is easy to maneuver, and is lightweight. I used to think that to really get a good vacuum you had to spend $500 on a Dyson. I think Shark really changed the vacuum market. I was going to purchase a shark, but a client bought this model and I used it and was very impressed. It sucked up larger things like receipt balls and is very powerful. It was $45 cheaper than the shark model i was looking at so I went with it and am very happy with it.
POWER!
March 16, 2017
I bought and returned 3 vacuums before I found this one.... it is a dream! It's a little heavy to be lugging up and down the stairs, but the power and suction are well worth it. The cord is long enough that I can vacuum the entire upstairs without moving the plug. This product has made me a Hoover Fan for life!
Great for the size
November 13, 2016
Great for the size. Easy and lift enough for the children in the house to use as well. We have hardwood floors and it picks up times well. Easy to clean and empty out contents into the trash.
Love, love, love
March 13, 2015
Love, love, love my new little vac! So glad I read the reviews and comparison shopped on Amazon. So light and so strong. I have 2 large, short-haired dogs -- and they shed a lot. This lovely vac gets it all. It is so powerful it practically ate my little rubber-backed door mats (that is the only down-side for me). I love the steering!! I was buying a backup for my Shark NV22L that balked when I bought it new filters. It is now the "backup." I am considering buying another one of these. I had no idea that vacs had changed so much over the past few years. The Shark is so yesterday. These light weight Hoovers are fabulous! I wish I had known about all the improvements earlier. Unfortunately, most of us only buy a vacuum when our current one fails. I now plan to keep up with the technology. The only reason I may not buy a "spare" one of these is because I'm afraid they may make even more improvements by the time I really need another.
The one down-side on this unit is that I have to empty the cup after each housecleaning. I have about 1000 sq feet -- mostly carpeted. But since my garbage cans are right outside the back door, emptying the cup is no big deal.
Also, am I the only one who would like to see a curly, stretch cord on vacuums? Like an old landline telephone. Probably would take down a lamp or other breakable, but I would sure like to try it.
If you are in the market, buy this Hoover now.
Excellent Vacuum Without Breaking The Bank!
January 4, 2015
I have had this vacuum for about 6 months. The first time I used it was in my old apartment that had not been cleaned for at least 1-1/2 years by a carpet cleaning crew before I moved in. I vacuumed using a $50 vacuum that had a bag and rolled along behind the hose. I thought my carpets were mostly clean because I used the $50 vacuum to vacuum once every week or other week and picked up a good amount of dust and hair each time (about half a bag). This Hoover WindTunnel Air Steerable made me realize just how disgusting the carpet actually was and how useless the $50 vacuum was too. I filled up and emptied the Hoover canister at least ten times for only 700 square feet of carpet! It was fine dust, dirt, and a lot more human and pet hair (that didn't belong to my little dog) that I vacuumed up right after using the other vacuum. The other $50 vacuum I had was sent to goodwill. After seeing the performance of the Hoover, I will never go "cheap" on a vacuum again. I then had a professional carpet cleaning company come in and clean the carpets. There was dirt embedded in the high traffic areas of the carpets that anyone could see that the hoover could not pick up. Only a good professional shampoo and steam cleaner could get it out. However, the carpet guy only removed about a small coffee can size worth of hair and other large particles after he cleaned. The hoover removed almost all of it before he showed up.

I vacuumed again about three days after the professional left and filled up another canister with fine dust and dirt that was loosened up from the professional cleaning and a very small amount of hair. The carpets looked almost brand new and I felt that they were finally clean. I used the hoover about every two weeks and picked up half a canister each time. I was able to maintain the carpet for three months before moving out and I was not charged a cleaning fee by the apartment complex because of how clean the Hoover was able to maintain the carpets after the professional cleaner did his work a few months before.

The suction and mobility with the steerable function are awesome. The tools and the handle extension with the long hose makes it easy to reach any place and very good for couches and furniture. It can get high hard to reach spots as well. My only gripe is the little tool with the brush does not have a very good plastic so the plastic push button to hold the brush out sometimes pushes in and allows the brush to slide back exposing only the plastic edge. I have been able to push the button out and bend it some to hold the brush in place. Also, the brush rollers on the bottom are not too easy to clean as a lot of hair gets tied up around them. I just use a sharp pocket knife to cut the hair and pull it out when too much gets clogged up. The filter is easy to wash and clean and is supposed to be a lifetime filter. It is a very nice feature to have and I love having a bagless vacuum.

The true test of this vacuum was when I moved into my new apartment. It smelled like smoke even after the carpet was "professionally" cleaned (paying the special $60 carpet cleaning guys is a waste of money to get a job done right). I spread a few boxes worth of baking soda out on all of the carpet areas rubbed it in. I let the baking soda sit for a few days and then came back with the Hoover. After vacuuming up most of the super fine baking soda, I was able to get most of the cigarrete smoke smell out of the apartment. I would not have been able to get it with the old vacuum because the baking soda was too fine and deep in the carpet to pickup. It was not a problem for the hoover. I just washed the filter when I was done and it was clean and ready to go again.

I would highly recommend this vacuum for its value and its performance. The expensive Dyson may work better (have never used it) but the Hoover does the job and doesn't break the bank. I have used it on carpet and laminate and it works at getting anything loose out including the dust that is deep in the carpet. I wouldn't go with anything less in performance than this product.

It fits!
September 24, 2017
Guess what? couldn't find that size at Sears where i bought the vacuum cleaner. at Amazon i got a package with two belts and it was less than the one non-matching belt from Sears that i bought first. now i have one to spare. it was a cinch putting the belt in and it's working just fine.
follow the directions

Why am I writing a review on a belt?
June 4, 2017
Geez, they're belts and they work. They do have kind of a rubbery stink when first installed in a Hoover Wind Tunnel vacuum, but once they stretch a bit they are OK.
A Good Replacement Drive Belt
May 26, 2017
This was a good, cost-effective purchase of a replacement drive belt for a Windtunnel vacuum. These belts will separate occasionally, especially when the agitator jams, and these belts are a good, easy-to-install replacement.
Forget bagless! Happily back to vacuums WITH bags!
December 6, 2015
Do not buy a bagless vacuum!After purchasing both dyson and then Hoover bag less vacuums (about 5) over the past 10 years I finally went back to a unit with bags. I believe that it is pure marketing hype that bagless vacuums are less work to maintain or use. I am sick (and tired) of taking them apart to wash the internal filters every other month. :-). Changing bags every few weeks takes 30 seconds.This Hoover With bags unit I purchased is Great. Forget about bagless hype ... You will hate cleaning those things.Hoover execs, by the way, you should learn from this.... I did!
Finally the RIGHT SIZE WINDTUNNEL BELT
February 28, 2014
I could ot believe it --- i NEARLY BREAK FINGERS trying to get these belts on this cleaner - always running over something that cuts the belts...and thenI saw AMAZON had the RIGHT SIZE HOOVER BELT - only I did not know it but for years have used the wrong size - this one size fits all stuff with offbeat brands because it is difficult for me to shop about to find these.I put this Hoover belt in in minutes ---- the secret to easy installatin after it is in place ready to put around the brush roll is to pull the thing down and pushed down on the left side and right side at the same time --- THEN ADJUSTING THE RIGHT SIDE ......IT TAKES STRONGER FINGERS BUT AFTER USING THESE OTHER BELTS this was easy for I DETEST PUTTING BELTS IN THIS CLEANER --- no wonder ---- this one size fits all is not cracked up what it is said to do.So I can recommend this to those who have a Hoover Windtunnel --- I bought four of these and now watch before I turn on vacuum to be sure changing these belts is a nuisance but this Hoover I remember from the time I was a child in the 1930 time frame and prefer to a DYSON ANY DAY.Connie the seller delivered as promised -- price is good --- AND ITS THE RIGHT SIZE

Great for me except after Hurricane Chelsea and other disasters.
September 7, 2017
I first bought this model from HSC about five years ago for about $40 more than it costs now. Overall, it works out perfectly for my home as I don't have a lot of carpeting nor do I currently have any pets. It picks up food debris left by my teenage son in the living room, and all the dirt that a small family can grind into the rugs and hallway runners. It also is easy to convert into a canister vac for use on furniture and draperies etc. It only comes with one convertible attachment - a combination small brush and crevice tool that stores on the vacuum. On this model, you must remove the hose from it's holder and insert it into the vacuum intake; a pretty easy task. I think on the more expensive model you can just flick a switch but this is easy enough. What killed the vacuum in five years is what I call Hurricane Chelsea. Chelsea was a nice girl who lived in my finished basement and almost never picked up anything off the floor. She vacuumed up twist ties, hair extensions, baubles and bits of everything that fell off her bedazzled head and other places. She never once dumped out the dirt container and never ever cleaned out the roller brush. I truly believe that under normal human conditions, this vacuum would have lasted another five years. I can't really blame it's demise on an act of God but Hurricane Chelsea came pretty close to a real natural disaster. Four stars only because it is most definitely not capable of withstanding a real nuclear explosion. Let's just say I took one for the team and let it go at that.
Good sleek slim vacuum for the price!
June 24, 2017
We've had this vacuum for a over a year now and it still works good (no issues with reliability). We use it between 4-8 times per month. Our only complaint is that we seem to want to use this as a "portable solution" because of the slim shape on top but the weight and bottom portion seem to make it a traditional vacuum. For example, trying to clean the carpet stairs; I want to either use the hose but it seems very tedious (vacuuming by square-inch) or use the actual vacuum base but this seems awkward.
Not cheap, but inexpensive
March 25, 2017
Good price. Works as well as the Dyson animal DC28 we used to have. Turns and gets under things much easier. Typically I love a lot of attachments (DC28) in order to have more options, but I knew going into the purchase. Also, our home is less complicated as we've downsized things. Only complaint thus far (after 5 months); I can't adjust for different carpet depths or surfaces, so the suction being as strong as it is, will cause it to bog down when pulling the vac backwards toward the body. I'd recommend it.
I love this vacuum
November 14, 2016
I love this vacuum, but I did have a couple of issues. The left front wheel squeaks. I don't know what's wrong with it. The angled attachment would not hold the brush on - it kept slipping, but I called Hoover customer service and they sent me a new one right away. So I'd say the customer service was great. Everything else is so nice and easy to use.
I was amazed with first use at all the stuff that came ...
October 15, 2016
I would rate this vacuum 4.5 stars. I finally gave up on my old Oreck and purchased this one, partly for price, partly because it does not require bags. I was amazed with first use at all the stuff that came up from my carpet that the Oreck missed. This baby SUCKS! but in a good way as it is supposed to. Cleaning the dust chamber is easy. I am sure, down the road, there will be more maintenance, but for now, it is performing beautifully. It's louder than the Oreck, but that is minor.

Hoover Windtunnel
March 9, 2014
I would give this five stars because it REALLY picks up the dirt, but its suction is so powerful that it also sucked up my throw rugs (even the room size one with the dinning table on top of it) which made it impossible to push the vacuum. I tried having my husband stand on the rug, etc., but nothing worked. Hoover customer service suggested that I use the upholstery brush to vacuum the rugs. The suction was still too strong. Even if it would have worked, it would take forever. I used a floor attachment to another vac and bought some parts in the plumbing department at the local building store to make it work. Problem solved.
So far, so good.
February 19, 2013
The genuine Hoover belts work well when they don't break! This could have been the fault of the vacuum...not sure yet. These belts fit nice and snug and work well to rotate the vacuum brush. First one broke. This one is holding on...so far. Again, the fault could be a snag somewhere within the vacuum unit. (Hoover WindTunnel T-Series Pet Upright Vacuum, Bagged, UH30310 )
Hoover sucks! Really. It's OK it's what we want it to do.
December 12, 2011
This is my second Hoover Wind tunnel. Had the first one for 15 years of so and definitely got my money's worth. Got the same one because of the suction. It really is a powerful little upright and for the money it is great. The quality of the plastic housing and the hose appear to be of a lesser quality than the first one. That's probably one way they kept prices down. The plastic housing looks like it may still be durable enough but the hose has me skeptical about it's longevity. It dents if you squeeze it too tight so it leaves me feeling it may fail before long but for now it's great. I definitely recommend it for the money b/c it really does suck well! Worth the try if you're not going to go for the Dyson or one of the other pricey brands.

The most unusual vacuum cleaner I've ever owned
July 24, 2017
The suction on this vacuum cleaner is so extreme that it literally picks up the 8ft x 10ft decorative rugs that we lay across our carpet. Yet, it does not pick up strings and other very light weight items like feathers and felt (after a day of crafting). The instructions for use are unclear, so I have not used the detachable hose though another member of our household figured it out. It works well on stray kitty litter, some hair and the occasional crumb.
It is a vaccum
March 28, 2017
This is a very basic vaccum. I paid 99 for it and it isnt worth any more than that. It does its job, but my complaints are that the canister is way too small. For some reason they designed the filter to take up over half of the thing. My old vaccum was the same size, but the debris portion of the canister was much larger. So I have to stop and empty the darn thing at least three times. My house isn't that big, it is 1626 sq ft. I have only one small bedroom that is carpet, the rest is tile. I vaccum twice a week, 3 if it needs it. The roller also needs to be cleaned after every use. It tangles hair like I've never seen. I decided to keep it because it does work and it suctions well, it is just high maintenance and a pain in the butt.
Wonderful vacuum, terrible with long hair.
July 2, 2016
We've had this for over a year now.

We have no animals, one long-haired adult and one short-haired adult, and the brush gets covered with hair very quickly, which is disappointing. It will occasionally smell of burning hair when running too hot.

Other than that, it's attractive, and I LOVE how light it is for pushing and even carrying around. There's even a handle to carry it by, and it's so easy to get up the stairs. It's exceedingly simple to empty, which I like very much. I can switch it from "push" mode to "accessory" mode in seconds, I don't even have to think about it and switch around often while cleaning the house.
IT'S OK*** BUT NO DREAM MACHINE
May 15, 2016
Not totally dissatisfied but it's far from perfect. I have an Irish Setter, long hair and dog dander are an issue...it has quite good suction. Emptying it requires manual content removal if you have dog hair, You have to take it totally apart if you want to clean it well. I have found that the filters need cleaning more often than stated in the directions.It will lose suction if you do not keep filters clean. Cleaning the filters is fairly easy. However, I found reassembling it difficult. IMPORTANT>You need to align the arrow in the center between lock and unlock. and then it will lock. It took me quite awhile to figure that out but maybe that's just me. I do not like the fact you have to remove screws to get the beater brush off to clean it..that's a bit of a hassle>wish it had clips. Personally, I do not think it turns all that easily. I find myself struggling with it more than I think I should be ..having to pick it up to move it in position. The fact you can stop the roller from turning is a nice feature, however, without the beater brush propelling the vacuum forward,, it is very hard to move about on anything but bare floor. You cannot make it flat and it does not go under most low furniture. I cannot get it under my bed which is about 12" off the ground. The only realistic way to clean under things is to use the hose .The hose vacuum works fairly well although it is quite short and you have to unattach it and reattach it to another outlet in the vacuum..I'm lazy and would rather not have to go through the extra work to undo and reattach the hose.. The cord is connected very low and I am always stepping on it if I do not hold it in my hand. Maybe that's just me, as well..It seems sturdily built. Much better than more expensive vacuums I have owned. It's OK..I've had it more than 6 months and it still works..that's a plus! However I will continue to look for a better inexpensive vacuum..a life long quest!!!
Great except for its power
March 24, 2015
I got my vaccum through Amazon warehouse deals. It was rated "good" but was brand new. It was just missing the box and the manual. Not a problem as I put it together in just a minute or two. The exterior is very nice although the pictures make it look a bit bigger than it really is.

I had looked at kohls and target before ordering online. The prices in store were 199 and 189 respectively. When I found this online for 86 including tax and free shipping (I am a prime member) I jumped at the chance. I ordered it on Sunday and it arrive Tuesday morning. Doesn't get much better than that!

However, the sucking power isn't the best. It's no where near as good as my old Hoover. The reason I wanted to replace the vacuum is because my other one was too heavy. It hurt my arm to do one room let alone the whole house. Therefore I am perfectly fine going over the carpet twice if not three times. Yes, sometimes you will need to go over a patch more than twice. I'm all right with that, especially since the unit is quieter than my older model. I rated it a 3 based on the sucking power being so poor on carpet. It worked perfectly on hardwood floors though.

Not all Hoovers
March 30, 2014
I bought this for my Windtunnel Hoover....it is working but is actually to small (tight) for my particular model of Windtunnel. It keeps the roller engaged even when the handle is up as well as when I want to do wood floors. Could be I didn't research well enough. Either way...it is a good product.
Consummable Replacement Item
March 1, 2014
What can I say? These belts wear out and need to be replaced periodically. They work until they don't and are cheap. (These are sacrificial so a mechanical part won't be broken on your vacuum cleaner.) They are inexpensive and arrive quickly. This won't be the sexiest purchase you will ever make, but when you do, the value is commensurate to the purpose.
never used it
December 18, 2013
when i bought a hoover vacuum cleaner, i read everywhere i should buy these belts because they will break eventually, and it will be a pain to find them. well, i ended up never using these spare ones i bought, and ended up giving them away when i sold the vacuum cleaner. so this is not really a review about the performance of the product. sorry.

BRUS MOVEMENT NOT CONSTANT, ONLY MOVES AS YOU MOVE SWEEPER IN FORWARD MOTION.
March 24, 2017
Got this last year,so I am a little late in review. However,we purchased this to clean carpeted areas in basement, and some upstairs areas. Biggest problem was the brushes would turn,but only moved if you moved sweeper forward. If you stopped moving brushes stopped turning. Also if you move the sweeper backward the brushes wouldn't turn,or spin hardly at all. Rarely had to clean out canister, because it simply was not giving carpet a steady constant brush spin. When you move the sweeper forward,the brushes turn,seems like movement was propelled wheel movement,rather than operating on its own. We have a Dyson, for main floors of house, it cleans.
I recognize comparison to Dyson out of question, and never expected that, but the movement of brushes dependent on your physical movement of sweeper, can't do the job. Or at least in our case didn't.
Works great for the first year, then continually dies.
March 15, 2017
Purchased this vacuum almost 2 years ago now and honestly for the first year it worked GREAT! But a little after a year in it started randomly dying when only a couple minutes into vacuuming a room, which at first I chalked up to overheating since I live in a bigger house now and had more room to cover while cleaning. But then it kept dying every time I would start vacuuming and would need to sit for 5 minutes or so before working again, thus turning a simple 15 minute cleaning process into 30+ minutes. I always empty and thoroughly clean the compartments when needed, so there's no reason it should be dying like this a few minutes into use. It has now completely died on me (after leaving a mess of debris on my carpet, yuck!!), so I guess it looks like I'll be splurging on a Dyson now :/
Not an upgrade on the cheaper UH70400
May 13, 2016
Not too impressed so far. We had The Hoover WindTunnel UH70400 for years. It was less expensive. This steerable version is not as good.

The Pros: Low profile. Light. Easy to empty canister and clean filter. Can detach hand tool so you don't have to use the full wand.

The Cons: Top heavy! Cannot adjust handle height.

I feel this is a decent vacuum. If you haven't used a WindTunnel before, you might like it more than we did. For us, it's not as good as the older model, so I gave a lower rating. The UH70400 had an adjustable handle. My wife and I have a pretty big height difference. This Hoover has a heavier handle that cannot be adjusted. It's okay for me, high for my wife. And that makes it top heavy. If you are using the hand cleaning tool, you need to hold the canister or IT WILL FALL OVER! Being steerable with such a small vacuum doesn't make much of a difference. All the pros from the steerable can be applied to the cheaper model except for the detachable hand tool. Save some $$$, buy the UH70400. Well worth it for a budget vacuum.
Better to see it than read descriptions online:
May 5, 2016
Was excited to try this new vacuum. I've had it for 3 months now, and find that I don't care for it.
(+) it is lightweight and self propelled; easy to change from roller brush to hose use; can see when bag is full.
(-) it has no adjustable carpet height, which means that it doesn't pick up certain objects my 20 yr-old Kenmore did; items such as popcorn and small candy wrappers get stuck in bagless dirt canister & difficult to remove; long hair clogs around the roller brush so badly that I have to clean it every time I vacuum, which is once a week(2 girls in family with midlength hair).
Recommendation: get something with adjustable carpet height, something that can handle kids. I changed the 2 filters on my old Kenmore, and it now works better than this new one. I'd take this to Goodwill, but my husband would be mad because I said we needed a new vacuum. Only thing I could see this thing working on is in an elderly apartment where grandkids don't visit.
Good for ONE time...hoping for quick repair
October 4, 2015
Update: 4/10/16 I did get a replacement vacuum. But I still have issue with the roller brush turning off when vacuuming area rugs, rugs by the door. It does have great suction, but just wish roller brush would stay ON.

This review I will hopefully be able to Update after calling for help.
I got this vacuum on Friday..and eagerly started using. (Yes, I am a dork)
However, after one full container of dirt, I emptied, and put away. Yesterday, I went to use again, and the brush roll will not turn on. I went through the manual for trouble shooting tips. Nothing worked. And of course, helpline only available M-F. So I went to YouTube (the videos have been incredible for previous issues) and found videos on helpful tips. In every case, if the brush roll won't work, then need to get motor replaced via Hoover.
So....for now my house isn't clean, and will have to call on Monday. Hoping Hoover customer service is as wonderful as Amazon's!
It's okay
September 12, 2015
The pros for this vacuum cleaner are as described. It's lightweight, heavy suction, low profile, the price on Amazon is good. There are several cons though. It definitely pulled hair and dirt out of my rugs that I think my previous vacuum wasn't able to do, but there is only one level and running it over thicker higher pile AND thinner carpet is difficult. It's almost impossible to run it over thicker carpet in a smooth manner without it skipping along and because of the heavy suction thinner carpets are pulled up making the vacuum job last longer having to straighten it out mid run. It's also very top heavy and can not be pulled along using the attachment without it falling over. It only has one accessory of a small brush, an extender wand would be helpful. I don't trust the reviews that describe picking up crumbs and dirt on hardwood floors really well. It does an okay job, but a Swiffer seems to do better. Regarding the maneuverability, it's not as smooth as you would think. Because of the heavy suction trying to either slow or speed up the motion over the rugs (depending on carpet thickness) can sometimes turn the vacuum without wanting to. Also, it fits farther under furniture than most, but it doesn't lat flat and won't allow for vacuuming completely under a sofa or bed. Overall, for the price, it's good enough and I like the slimness of it, but if I had an option to buy another I would.

1 out of 2 ain't bad?
October 3, 2017
The belts I received were in Hoover packaging. They contained the same model number as the broken belt. Before installing, I allowed the belts to acclimate to the temperature in my home. The first belt broke immediately after the vacuum was started. So far, the second belt has lasted long enough to vacuum an area rug. I hope it continues to hold up. We've probably had the vacuum for 10 years, and this is the first time we've needed to replace a belt. I had read so many reviews about belts breaking, that I decided to order a 2-pack. I'm glad I did! I just hope I don't need to order more.

These were the wrong replacement belts to go with this vacuum. Need to change your suggestions.
Was a back up belt to be used for vacuum ...

Was a back up belt to be used for vacuum that was returned, vacuum was defective. Some one should do there homeworkbefore making these inquiries
Wrong belts
June 5, 2014
The belts I received were not the ones I thought I ordered. I searched for belts to fit a model of self-propelled Hoover upright. I made the unfortunate assumption that Amazon's search engine would produce the proper belt. When these popped up I ordered them. It turns out that the belts are for a Hoover that is not self propelled. As I was the one who made the mistake, I would have to pay shipping charges that amount to more than 50 percent of the purchase price of the items to return them. So I didn't return them. I'll just pick some up at my local Walmart and consider that this order was part of my education on the limits of trusting a website search engine. Lesson learned.I suspect that the belts I received would work well on the vac for which they were intended.
no so good quality
April 11, 2013
If you want good quality belts find the original these two didnt las t a week together....dont waste your money
Bigger Size than the original
April 10, 2012
This product is bigger in size than the original Hoover Belt. Though the advertisement said it is the original Hoover Belt. In reality it is nothing close to original especially the bigger size of the belt. Unable to use them.

Overheated 2 minutes out of the box
October 13, 2017
Believe the bad reviews you read. You may get lucky but why risk it? Took this out of the box and got it all set up. Tried vacuuming the dining room and 2 minutes later the motor slowed down and it had a really bad burning smell coming from it. Really sad since I was looking forward to this vacuum as a possible good replacement.Other minor issues included the wheels being very squeaky. Every time I pulled back, they would squeak this awful noise. I could have looked past that had it worked.Also, though I didn't have much time to test it, the vacuum didn't seem to suck very strongly. My old Hoover was much stronger and it was a cheaper one from Walmart.Lastly, should mention the packaging. Just came in the box without any external packaging. The box was really dented on one corner and nearly shredded open. Will likely buy a vacuum from a store instead of online..
Really bad vacuum cleaner!
October 12, 2017
I have owned this vacuum for approximately 9 months, and it has been a total waste of money. In trying to vacuum an 8x10 area rug, I have to push the button to re-engage the brush at least ten times in order to complete a small area. The worst Hoover that I have ever owned.
Problems
June 27, 2017
This works well, until the major piece of plastic between the upper and lower part breaks. Hoover sent a replacement, but it too broke within a week! The last replacement is fine so far, but I'm glad I bought an extended warranty in case it breaks again.
Well this Hoover is at least twice as bad at half the weight
April 26, 2017
Bought this thing to replace my old heavy Eureka that just killed my back with every use. Well this Hoover is at least twice as bad at half the weight.. It just does not move easily regardless of the type of floor. It's got a lot of suction, but because of that it just wants to stick wherever it stops. I had sweat rolling down my face by the time I was halfway done with the living room. And my back was shot long before I ever finished. If you want to use the attachment, you have to disconnect the base of the hose and insert it into another opening. Just not that user friendly when you have to reconfigure the whole machine just to use an attachment. And lastly when I went to empty the canister the top handle popped off the canister which fell and made a mess. I hate this thing and am going back to using my old vacuum.
Way too much suction - Can barely move it across carpet!
September 8, 2016
The suction was SO strong it made it difficult for me to push it or pull it across our 8x10 area rug. My husband laughed at me when he got home and I had it pushed off to the side, disappointed that all my research ended up with a return of an item. So I said to him, "You try it!" He laughed, walked over to the "WindTunnel" and turned it on with a grin, and within seconds, his entire facial expression changed to surprise and his goofy grin turned into disbelief. He was shoving it and pulling it and saying "Whoa, this thing mega-sucks!" We both laughed at that point, and decided that either we are just a couple of middle-aged wimps, or this suction is far too much for a normal 8x10 carpet from Home Depot.
Poor Quality and Poorer Customer Service
March 23, 2016
I was amazed to find that this vacuum cleaner was very poor in picking up anything at all since I've always found Hoover vacuums to be very high quality. As a few other reviews noted, after picking up debris like lint and dirt, the vacuum spits it back out on to the carpet. I have tried to see if the cleaner was not put together correctly but everything seems to fit. Also as someone noted, I was unsuccessful in contacting Hoover. I left my phone number for a callback which never came so not only is the product inferior but their customer service is just as bad. I would have returned the vacuum but as I am a procrastinator, I probably waited too long so I guess I'lll donate it to goodwill and buy another brand and take this as a "lesson learned."

Did not fit,....
October 30, 2017
Did not fit vacuum as advertised, could not return, time expired.
not for the windtunnel pet vacuum
July 31, 2016
this belt was supposed to fit my Hoover vacuum but it didn't. I took the old one off and this belt shipped from Amazon did not match. Of course, now it's too late to return as I'm past my 30 days. I would say to doublecheck the part number and don't rely on Amazon's list of models it fits.
Buy this and keep it in a drawer forever. Your vacuum belt won't break if you have a spare on hand.
December 15, 2013
I bought this vacuum cleaner belt because I do not need it. Have you ever needed a vacuum cleaner belt? Have you ever needed one IN A HURRY? I had a Kenmore that was the best carpet vacuum I have ever seen, but the belt broke. I didn't have another. I put off looking for one. I moved to an apartment with all wood floors and discarded the Kenmore. Now I have area rugs and a Hoover that just isn't as nice and I can't find bags for it anywhere but Amazon. So I bought the bags here, and the belt too because it was inexpensive and I have bad memories of lacking the vacuum cleaner belt. So now I have this Hoover that I hate too. And if it breaks its belt, I have one on hand so I can go on hating this vacuum cleaner for ever. I even ordered a new hose for it.
Bum Scoop
October 13, 2012
Amazon paired this belt with the Hoover vacuum model UH70210. No reason to doubt that Amazon would do such a thing if it wasn't the right belt. Wrong... Got the belts a few days before the vacuum arrived and was confused when the users manual stated the proper belt was AH20065 not this 40201160/38528033 2-pack. E-mailed Hoover and they responded that these are completely two different belts in lenght and the AH20065 was the right one for my model with the beater bar cutout switch. Shame on Amazon for recommending the wrong product on their site.
Keeps on Breaking
May 12, 2012
Belts do not come in hoover package. It keeps on breaking. I got 6 belts in last 2-3 months and only 1 is left. I do not use the vaccumn cleaner that much may be once in 2 weeks.
Beware of aftermarket belts
January 8, 2012
Unless your order comes in the original Hoover packaging, you may receive aftermarket belts which may or may not work on your vacuum. I ordered these belts and received 2 belts which came individually (not wrapped) with just an invoice in a mailing envelope. The belts themselves were marked "Hoover Belt 38528-033" in three horizontal lines on each belt. This was the correct part number for my vacuum, but the belts I received had virtually no stretch to them and I could not install them.I brought the belts and vacuum to a local vacuum cleaner store and the owner of the store told me these belts were dried out and had lost their elasticity (he called it "dry rot," which refers to the deterioration of rubber). The belts I purchased in person from the vacuum store ($4.99 for two) were marked with a trademark symbol "Hoover® Belt 38528-033" and also were marked "Assemble this side out," whereas the generic belts only had "Hoover Belt 38528-033" three times as noted above. The genuine Hoover belt was also thinner than the generic belt, which made it easier to stretch to fit on the vacuum.As you can read in some other reviews, people have sometimes had a problem with these belts breaking easily after they were installed. This may be why. For a couple of bucks difference, it might be worth it to buy these belts from a local store unless you can request when you place your Amazon order that the seller send you Hoover belts in their unopened original packaging.
