    Comments about Hoover® Wind Tunnel Upright Vacuum (U5491900):

    I have used many different brands such as Dirt devil, Bissell and so on. I have always come back to hoover. I bought the older version of this in 2001, and had it until november of 2012. My son bought me this for christmas a month after. Still my favorite vacuum. Only thing I would ask is for hoover to make a longer hose. But thanks for such a nice machine.

      Comments about Hoover® Wind Tunnel Upright Vacuum (U5491900):

      This vacuum has the most powerful suction of any vacuum I have used. I don't understand the complaints of a short cord. I had a 2 bdr 900 sq ft apartment and could reach almost the whole place from 1 outlet. The attachments are conveniently stored and very easy to use. With the attachments on the hose I can reach the ceiling to vacuum cobwebs. As my carpet got older, the light on the dirt finder did start staying red most of the time. But I think that just shows that it was probably detecting more dirt that was deep down in the fibers. Overall, I don't know if you could find a better vacuum for the price. One word of advice, I buy my bags and filters directly from Hoover. The HEPA bags (AH10040) work great with my dust and pollen allergies. I could not find the HEPA bags in stores that truly fit this model.

          Comments about Hoover® Wind Tunnel Upright Vacuum (U5491900):

          This vacuum could be designed much better. The hose that detaches at one end is too short to serve any purpose. You must purchase a longer hose to use the accessories. I am now having problems with the embedded dirt finder light. It stays lit red all the time. I have cleaned everything, and I even consulted Hoover tech support. They could not/would not give advice to help me solve the problem, and told me to take it in for repair. Also, the plastic tip on the handle keeps pulling off in my hand. When using the tools with the attached short hose, the vacuum often tips over at the smallest pull on the hose. Due to poor customer support, and poor and cheap design features, I will not purchase another Hoover vacuum. I have used Hoover vacuums all my life, but no more.

              Very poor design. Cord not long enough. Hose attachment is too short and not flexable, every time I try to use it the vacumn tips over or falls on me! When using the hose attachment you cannot reach high and by the time you are finished vacumning you are pooped out! The attachments always fall out because it is so short and not flexable enough. I'm sorry but I will never buy another one!

              Comments about Hoover® Wind Tunnel Upright Vacuum (U5491900):

              I use this vacuum to clean my apartment. I haven't experienced the problems other reviewers have mentioned. I have owned this product for about 2 years now, and it's still under warranty.

              The suction seems strong, and I really like the on-board tools that attach easily and even have their own compartments on the vacuum. The light also helps so you can see what you are vacuuming on the floor. There is a dirt indicator that supposedly tells you if the patch of carpet you are going over is clean or not. Red for dirty, and green for clean. The other good thing is that this vacuum uses bags so dust and dirt is less likely to fly around when you change bags. There is also a mechanical "bag full" indicator. I haven't changed the bag once for the time I have owned this vacuum. (I only vacuum once a month, but the bag also seems large.) There is a carpet height adjustment switch, and the on-off switch is easily accessible on the handle. The cord is long, but is not retractable. There is space and notches on the vacuum so you can wind and store the cord, however.

              The only problem I ever had was that the brush belt fell off recently, but I just put it back on. I had to unscrew the bottom plate to get to the belt, but it was not difficult at all using the owner's manual.

              The other good thing is the 3 year warranty. If anything goes wrong during that period, Hoover is supposed to fix it, though I haven't tried to make a claim yet.

              The downsides of this vacuum: heavy (not self-propelled), noisy, and no off switch for the brush so you can't use it to clean delicate surfaces like wood.

              Overall, I think the pros far outweigh the cons. This vacuum performs well and is reliable. Though it's not perfect, it is a great value for the price. I recently looked at some vacuums that costs hundreds of dollars, and the only real difference between this vacuum and those other ones is that there is an off switch for the brush agitator on the expensive vacuums.

              tried to turn off the vacuumn and it would not turn off. took the handle apart and some kind of a plastic arm is suppose to shut the switch off inside the handle but is too weak to work. very poor excuse for a switch control. would not recomend this cleaner to anyone
