Packaging was impressive with only 3 pieces of styrofoam and a few bags that were protecting the vacuum. I was able to get it out of the box easily and assemble it. Our house consists of laminate hardwoods with large area rugs downstairs. While upstairs is all carpet (except for the bathrooms and laundry room). I tend to run the vacuum (my wonderful old Hoover WindTunnel2-I am a Hoover girl) once or twice a week. We have a dog and her fur tends to float here and there. The vacuum is the only thing that picks it up completely. One of the first things I noticed (in comparison to my other Hoover) is the size. The base is only 12 inches wide so it can fit into tight spaces. It has been tough for the past few years getting under end tables and behind certain furniture. This swivels right into those small spaces with ease. The vacuum handle also reclines to get under the beds or couches! The vacuum only weighs only 12.4 pounds...but don't let it's size fool you! I must say, the suction is amazing! One of our area rugs is hard to clean and I have never felt it was really vacuumed. The WindTunnel Air got it looking great! It is now the off-white it should be! There are two more features of this vacuum that I personally love. The first is the long cord...30 feet long! My last one was definitely not that long so I had to break up the house into sections. This one I can complete the downstairs with only one move. The other feature that is a must have for me is the brush-roller shut off. Having hardwoods I need the ability to turn on or off the rollers. The switch is at the top of the canister which is convenient. I must mention this vacuum is bagless!!! Have you ever priced vacuum bags? They are expensive and unless it is a new vacuum you have to order them online. (I know this from experience!) You can rinse out the filter yourself. I am liking being able to discard the dust bunnies right into the garbage! Did the vacuum have any cons? Only one. I had a hard time figuring out the hoses but once I read the instruction manual, I was good to go. Would I buy this vacuum if I was shopping for one? Absolutely! The performance gets an A from me!

The good news about this vacuum is that it is super powerful, awesome suction and I was really pleased with how much dirt it picked up on both floors and carpets. With 2 cats in the home, we were really pleased with the cleaning results. Easy to lift, very portable for different areas of the home, great for stairs and smaller rooms like bathroom. Rather quiet too. Unfortunately I had to give it a poor rating due to the construction of the vacuum itself. Within months we went through two of them and both had the same issue. It seems the hose and extension attachment part are poorly glued and with very little tension and stretching they broke off both vacuums. The first time the hose became detached from the main body/canister, it just snapped off. The second one broke on the extension hose, the part you clip the attachment brushes on also snapped off the hose. Both looked like is was cheaply glued. The retailer we purchased from exchanged the first one and we opted for a refund on the second one after it broke again. I can't understand how this integral part could be so poorly designed. Needless to say we will not be purchasing this model again. Too bad, because overall it did a really great job. Hoover, you need to put more effort in the construction of the vacuum itself so parts don't become detached so easily rendering it useless. Probably a good idea to spend the extra on a better model.

Old Windtunnels better

By CHS1

from Albuquerque, NM, United States

Comments about Hoover Windtunnel Air Multi-Cyclonic Bagless Upright Vacuum (UH70400):

This is my 3rd Windtunnel and I am disappointed this time. I don't like having to use a switch to go from hose to floor settings because I frequently go back and forth between those settings, never had to on the old models. The switch to go from flor to hose sits very low and out of easy reach and is very stiff. Another poor design is with the crevice tool, it sits inside the hose so it is in the way and must be removed every time the hose is used. The old Windtunnels would lie flat on the floor to reach under beds and the new one does not. Need I go on?

Awful!!!,

By Maym

from Charlotte, NC, United States

Comments about Hoover Windtunnel Air Multi-Cyclonic Bagless Upright Vacuum (UH70400):

My husbamd bought this for me and it works ok on carpet but on hard surfaces it's awful. The venting for the air blows out the front and down so you chase the dirt and dog hair across the floor. It takes twice as long to vacuum and it's still dirty. All the attachments fall off as you vacuum. I'm a second generation Hoover only vacuum purchaser. I've never owned any other brand and this is only my 3rd one in 25 years but I hate this vacuum and dpent way too much for it.

The little vacuum that could

By Cbc0201

from Las Vegas, NV, United States

Comments about Hoover Windtunnel Air Multi-Cyclonic Bagless Upright Vacuum (UH70400):

Perfect for my needs. My place is rather small so I didn't want a full-size vacuum, but I still wanted something decent. First, it's a quality vacuum. Well constructed and just feels like a quality product. It's light and small which means it has a small canister. You can turn the brush-head in or off and the wand / handle plus extension works really.

Second review

By RN Educator

from Mt Vernon, VA, United States

Comments about Hoover Windtunnel Air Multi-Cyclonic Bagless Upright Vacuum (UH70400):

I posted an honest review regarding my two Wind Tunnel vacuums. It was denied bc I added details about plastic parts and breakage. Warranty is fine. Covered handle breaking off from roller and clip breaking on hose. Called online number and brought it in. Machines were under two years old. Reposted with less to ensure review is accepted. Reviews are only accepted if favorable, perhaps. Will not purchase again.

Wish it had manual carpet height adjustment

By BJ8986

from Wisconsin, United States

Comments about Hoover Windtunnel Air Multi-Cyclonic Bagless Upright Vacuum (UH70400):

This vacuum is light and quiet and has tremendous suction. We have 3 different carpet pile heights in our home; two of which it works splendidly on, the third, which is just a slightly higher pile, causes the red light to come on and the brush to stop. I wish there were a manual height adjustment to eliminate this from happening. Also, the crevice tool (which is integral to all the other on-board tools) broke the second time we used it and is out of stock currently on the website. Whether or not to recommend to others would depend on what type of carpet they have. Would definitely suggest trying it first if possible. I bought online, so didn't have the chance to do so.

Surprisingly powerful

By Granny K

from West Lafayette, IN

Comments about Hoover Windtunnel Air Multi-Cyclonic Bagless Upright Vacuum (UH70400):

I can't remember when I bought this vacuum, it must have been four or five years ago. As soon as I tried this new vacuum I sent my heavy, bulky Dyson to the basement. This Hoover is amazingly lightweight and easy to use yet has tons of power. Contrary to many of the other reviews, I have never had to replace a belt or any other parts. Clips, hoses, everything is all original. The easy adjusting handle is fantastic. I like the low-profile base of it because it cleans under the edges of my cabinets easily. My Dyson was too bulky and I could never get to those spaces. My only issue has been the poor quality attachments and the way they will not stay attached to the back as designed. I prefer an old round duster brush from a '70's Sears vac. I use this vacuum for everything - carpets, tile, wood floors and even cleaning out my car.

Worked great but losing suction

By Jwill

from West Linn, OR, United States

Comments about Hoover Windtunnel Air Multi-Cyclonic Bagless Upright Vacuum (UH70400):

We've had our vacuum for 2 years now and it's worked great but now the removable dirt canister doesn't stay in place. I have to push down on the top of the canister (the handle you use to carry it around) while I vacuum or it pops up from the bottom near the filter and loses suction and increases the noise volume. My back can't take it anymore. I'm not sure what the fix is or what to do because the motor still works great.

I hate this horrible vacuum cleaner

By CHERYLE618

from Orlando, FL, United States

Comments about Hoover Windtunnel Air Multi-Cyclonic Bagless Upright Vacuum (UH70400):

I've had it just under a year and thought it would just take some time getting used to compared to my old Hoover non steerable vacuum. But every time I use it the more I dislike it. It's heavy for its size, and it is very unwieldy to Move It from place to place even when the head is locked into position. When you pick it up to move it over a stair for example the head drops down. It is not good on hard flooring. It just doesn't seem to pick up dog hair off of hard floors. The attachments are always falling off of the unit and if you're using the tube into the hose, it almost always comes out every time you stretch it even slightly. Even though it says you have 15 feet of reach, even if you barely pull on the hose the entire vacuum cleaner will fall over. the attachment head that is bendable does not lock into place, so even the slightest bit of pressure will cause it to bend at the angle you do not want it to be. You have to hold it in position with your hand in order to get enough pressure to vacuum a bookshelf without it bending. It's far too expensive for what you get. I've had it too long to return it so I have to just live with it.

Love the power/unhappy with the cheap plastic parts

By KimberlyU

from Massachusetts, United States

Comments about Hoover Windtunnel Air Multi-Cyclonic Bagless Upright Vacuum (UH70400):

When I bought this I absolutely LOVED it. The power is GREAT, it maneuvers GREAT, I WAS SO happy with it. After 1 month (which is 4 times vacuuming my very small apartment), a little plastic clip broke off. This clip is literally the ONLY thing that connects the handle of the vacuum to the body of the vacuum. Now I can't pick it up by the handle because the whole container comes up with the handle. It is so sad that I have to pick up my entire vacuum and carry it like a baby just to bring it to the next room. Not only that but I have to detach the hose every time I carry it like a baby into the next room because it is next to impossible to carry it with the hose attached. I don't understand why on this great and powerful vacuum, they ruined it by using a teeny cheap piece of plastic to hold it all together. I'm very disappointed.

Comments about Hoover Windtunnel Air Multi-Cyclonic Bagless Upright Vacuum (UH70400):

I have had this a month after having another lightweight vacuum for 6 years This is only an ok vacuum has good suction and does well on bare floors.. I do not recommend it for carpet because while it glides nicely on bare floors you have to push very hard on carpet.. I have not found where there is any kind of height adjustment when vacuuming carpet

Love this machine!

By Little Rascal

from Michigan, United States

Comments about Hoover Windtunnel Air Multi-Cyclonic Bagless Upright Vacuum (UH70400):

I have looked at this machine a few times before, but past it up for a few reasons that actually turned out to be the main reasons I purchased it this time. It's small, light weight and has an automatic height adjustment. I was so sure it couldn't possibly have enough suction to actually clean well though and was I wrong on it's cleaning ability. This baby works better than my last four vacuums combined! It's a breeze to empty, has plenty of cord length, it's light weight to carry upstairs to do cleaning on the second floor and does she have power! *And she's quieter than any other machine I've owned! I love the adjustable hand height as well as the ability to turn off the brush roller when I clean furniture and my wood floors. (dog hair, GONE!) I also love the low profile for cleaning under furniture as well as the narrower power head that fits between dining-room chair legs so I'm not always pulling the chairs out. I had read the reviews on this machine and the ratings many times before, but opted for other machines because of it's smaller size. I have only had her for a week but so far this vacuum is the best purchase I have made and I'm so glad I took a chance on the Hoover Wind Tunnel this time. Love this machine!

My second wind tunnel purchase

By BJS56

from Costa Mesa, California

Comments about Hoover Windtunnel Air Multi-Cyclonic Bagless Upright Vacuum (UH70400):

I bought this model for my 94 yr old Mother in Ohio. She needed a light weight vacuum. I was amazed the first time we ran this vacuum over the carpet. I had to empty the canister twice. Needless to say the old vacuum was not cleaning properly. I was so pleased that after I returned home to California I purchased one for myself.

Model UH 70400

By doodang

from Vermont, United States

Comments about Hoover Windtunnel Air Multi-Cyclonic Bagless Upright Vacuum (UH70400):

I purchased this unit a few weeks ago and just recently got it out of the box. It operates well except for 1 important feature. There is NO height adjustment for vacuuming carpets or area rugs. I read the manual and no where was there a explanation of how to adjust the height for carpets. So, I called the 800 # provided. After a considerably LONG wait ,I was finally connected to a representivitive only to find out it is a "automatic" feature of the vacuum. How it works is beyond me. Seems to always be at one level, low. Live and learn. Something I wish was conveyed to us prior to purchasing. Other than it not having the carpet height adjustment feature, the unit seems to be ok. Time will tell.

By rch60

from Springfield, VA, United States

Comments about Hoover Windtunnel Air Multi-Cyclonic Bagless Upright Vacuum (UH70400):

This vacuum is great when it comes to cleaning- the suction is awesome and picks up so much debris. On the other hand, I am now looking to get ANOTHER replacement hose because of the cheap plastic clips that break with normal use. I have had it break down at the brush area, so I couldn't use it at all. Now the clip on the attachment has broken and I can't use it until it is replaced. I am really disappointed because I really like how it cleans but frustrated because it is rendered useless until it's repaired. If Hoover can improve upon this issue, it would be a much better product.

Even thiu is was a 2 years warrenty. And HSN would not take it back. I feel i was scammed. I expected better from Hoover.

DO NOT BUY THIS VACUUM!

By DD312

from Indiana, United States

Comments about Hoover Windtunnel Air Multi-Cyclonic Bagless Upright Vacuum (UH70400):

I purchased this vacuum due to it being on sale a a price of $69.99 which was $100. off the normal price. It had good reviews and seemed a great deal. After using this cheap piece of junk I would NOT purchase another. Its made of cheap plastic and you cannot adjust the floor/carpet roller. It sucks very well, as a matter of fact because it sucks so hard you cannot maneuver it on carpet. IF it had a height adjustment for carpet it would be much better. Its made VERY CHEAP and I urge you to STAY AWAY from this unit. I've learned my lesson......when you buy cheap, you get cheap!
