I have had two other bagless vacuums (both Dyson); love Dyson, but even Dyson has had some issues requiring repair.
I decided to try this Hoover Windtunnel Max Multi Cyclonic and I have not been disappointed to date.
Fairly light in weight (even my mom finds it not too heavy); good suction, easy empty canister, variable floor options and an easy push down feature when going from carpet to floor.
Accessories are great and easy to attach from the onboard storage.
We have two dogs and it makes clean up easy.
Would highly recommend this vacuum for its suction, weight, easy empty-clean canister, multi surface and ease of same and of course cost.
Makes clean up a breeze! The only reason I didn't give it a '5' was even though the cord is quite long (aprox 28 ft), I would love it even longer.
