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.

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.

It's an ok vacuum

By Debbie402

from Granville, OH, United States

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.

love-hate it

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.

Very disappointed! It did not perform like HSN showed in there segment. It was bogus!! Then 6 months after i purchased it the main hose broke, with normal usage. The warrenty refused to repair it. 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!

Makes an AWESOME modern art conversation piece if you don't need to clean !!

By TJudd

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

Yup - this baby works great if you want to sit it in the corner and use for a coat rack, or draw a smiley face on the canister while you contemplate the good old days a year ago when it used to work, or even use it as a reminder that it's time to stop buying things with limited warranty because you'll just find yourself here trying to figure out how to fix it. She was happy when she first got it because she's my super freak - cleaning freak that is, and oddly enough loves to clean - and that works for us because admittedly I'm kind of a slob. Hey, I'm working on it and remembered to take off my shoes before writing this review - so there's progress =) Who could have know that it would require more time trying to figure out issues than actually using it? Sometimes, limited suction as I gave it a pep talk and said " Come on baby - you can pick up that feather " and with motor over matter and focused concentration, humming along " I think I can, I think I can " - it often did like the little vacuum that could. Then the brushes stopped turning, but being a glass half full kind of guy, I searched the net to find this great site with videos to try that did nothing to solve the problem but at least I met you, so there's that! It looks like I'm now part of the growing Windtunnel regret club. Was I supposed to bring a dish to pass? What happened to Hoover from our younger days when the name itself was synonymous with quality and what we thought of when someone said vacuum, like we do now with facial tissues and just say Kleenex for any kind? (Note to self - my UK friends still say "Hoover it" instead of vacuum it, even if it's a Dyson - but then again they weigh things in stones and are obsessed with tea time - so we should just let that go, don't ya think?) Well, back on topic as I sometimes have the attention span of fruit fly, I tried all the suggestions, checking for obstructions, making sure the brushes moved freely, and even - while feeling like it might be a Hoover practical joke like hunting snipe, unplugged it and held down the brush button to see if it reset. Then tried it again, and again. Nothing, zero, ziltch, nada, the poor brush motor must have given up the ghost and is now in a better place in brush motor heaven, but still sad to lose him in his youth as the vacuum was not very old. Can we have a moment of silence for all the Windtunnel vacuums and parts that had their lives cut short while still young? And maybe another for those that really loved the Hoover brand but found they are now out of luck. No canned reply needed from customer service as I've already tried to give it VPR, a version of CPR for the poor Windtunnel, live no where near a service center, and don't keep receipts for things I have confidence will last. May it rest in peace.

Hoover Delivers Again!

By Duc Bui

from Kent, WA, United States

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

I bought a Hoover Windtunnel Air Lite as a second vacuum cleaner for quick cleanup, kitchen floor and stairs. Loved the weight and easy mobility. However, I gave my mom the Windtunnel Air Lite and missed it much. My full size vacuum is intended for the big jobs and whole house cleaning. When there was an opportunity to grab a deal, I purchased the Windtunnel Air. It's a bit larger than the Air Lite model but fits me better. Love the adjustable handle. The design Air model and use is very similar to Air Lite so it was easy to put together and use right out of the box. For the price point, the Windtunnel Air is an excellent vacuum and performs well for the light jobs I expect it to perform. I am giving it a 4 out of 5 because the Air model does not have the steerable feature.

Best sweeper EVER!!

By Cheri Lou

from Saegertown, PA, United States

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

I never ever write reviews, I read them before purchasing a product but just never took the time to write one myself until now. I purchased the Hoover Windtunnel Air because the reviews sounded promising. I had a Dyson which I did love until I met the Hoover Windtunnel Air. This thing is unbelievable. The main reason I bought it was because I have two long hair dogs, and after I ran the sweeper I could still see hair on my carpet, well not anymore, this new sweeper is like magic! It picks up every dog hair, it looks like a brand new carpet! I am so impressed! And its very lightweight which is a bonus. I have told everyone I could about this sweeper and what an amazing job it does. And you CANNOT bet the price!!!

Works great!

By Susan Carr

from California, United States

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

I bought this vacuum a few weeks ago and I absolutely love it! I knew my old vacuum was awful but I didn't realize how dirty my house was until I started using this vacuum. Every time I use it I get tons of hair, dirt and dust off my floors and carpets. Works great on my hardwood floors and tile too, and I have 4 dogs. The only thing I wish this had is a solid pole extension instead of just a hose extension. Since there is no pole extension I can't get the hard-to-reach spots under my bed and on the ceiling. Otherwise, I highly recommend!

The vacuum is light and small but works great! I bought one awhile ago for my mom and decided to get myself one for my new house. It works great on both hardwood and carpet. A lot of vacuums seem to just spit out on wood floors/tile, But this one doesn't. I will always keep using this vacuum.

Light and powerful

By Zaji Rima

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

Purchased about a month ago for our condo in Colorado. Turns out this is a pretty powerful unit for the price. It is small and lightweight enough to carry up a small, winding staircase. I cannot attest to durability at this time. Hope it lasts for years and, if so, will be back to Hoover for more.

So impressed right now! We've only had it a couple of weeks so it's durability is yet to be seen. But we love how it cleans right now and we can move from carpet to hardwoods with no issues.
