Rated 5 out of 5 by SRXguy Great vacuum
I bought this vacuum to replace my 10 month old Dyson DC65 animal upright. I've tried several Dyson vacuums over the years and realized they weren't doing a very good job. I wanted to go back to a bagged vacuum with a manual height adjustment. I like adjusting the height and knowing the vacuum is digging into the carpet and cleaning it good. In my opinion when you can't adjust the vacuum height the vacuum just cleans the top of the carpet. And when you empty a bagless vacuum dust gets everywhere. I really like this new Hoover. It does a great job and my carpets are really clean. My only complaint would be I wish the light was brighter.

great suction . love the small tool that has a brush that rotates for stairs. it is a little heavy. wish it was lighter to carry up stairs. but love it just the same.nice long hose.

My old Kirby finally died so I was skeptical that I could find something adequate to replace it. The Hoover WindTunnel Max has much better suction that I expected. I found that I had to raise the beaters above the carpet a bit since the suction was so intense at the lower settings that I could hardly push it. Also, when using the hose to vacuum stairs the suction is so intense the hose shrinks up. Wow. I do wish they had made the fittings out of heavier plastic. They feel a bit flimsy. You can't bear down on the tube when it is extended--the joint can't take it. I was a bit concerned that I had to dismantle the beater attachment the first time I used it to clean out a wood chip that jammed the gears. All-in-all an excellent buy for the money and SO much lighter than that old Kirby!

I HAVE ALWAYS USED HOOVER FOR MY VACCUMS AND I'VE BEEN NOT UNHAPPY WITH ANY OF THEM. YOU SELL TOP OF THE LINE FOR ME AND I LOVE IT.

I bought a Windtunnel Max in November 2016 as a replacement for an earlier version of the same product. We use it mainly on tiled floors for picking up cat litter! The old MAX worked really well, but the new one lacked the suction to pick up the litter. We took it to a repair shop and they replaced the main housing under warranty. It didn’t cure the problem.
I put the old and new MAX machines side by side and realized that the new one sat higher than the old one, reducing the suction effect on hard floors. Upon further examination, I discovered that the new MAX has bigger front wheels making the front of the machine sit about ¼” higher than the old MAX.
I was able to exchange the wheels between the machines so that the new MAX would sit lower. That cured the problem and the new MAX with the old front wheels now does a great job picking up cat litter on tile floors!
That means there is a design flaw in the newer version of the Windtunnnel MAX Model # UH30600.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Loree Great vacuum with wonderful features and a very good price.
I am very happy with my new Hoover vacuum! I decided to go back to a vacuum with a bag because I hated the mess of emptying a bag less vacuum. The features on this model are very nice: the electrical cord is longer than on my Dyson. Also the attached hose for using the dusting brush is flexible and stretches to reach high areas. This is another feature that is much better than on my Dyson. The on/off switch is in a very good location on the handle. The suction power is great. The height adjustment works well too. I have everything from bare floors to a medium plush carpet in my home and the vacuum worked
great on everything. Noise is about the same as most other vacuums I have had.
My only negative comments are: the light is useless, because it is located too high to even light up the floor. Also I don't like the dusting/upholstery brush. I use mine to dust the walls in my log home and the bristles are too short. I solved this problem by buying two additional brush attachments with longer, softer bristles at
an online site. I almost forgot to mention the power attachment is awesome, it works great on my stairs and upholstered furniture!
Over my almost 40 years of marriage I have had several vacuums- everything from a canister to a Rainbow (that collected the dirt in a container of water), to bagged and bag less machines. I do believe this is the best vacuum I have ever owned and I still can't believe the great price!
