    Very good product – thus far, March 23, 2014

    References to keep handy.

    To be fair about my assessment, I am comparing this to my 17-year old Kenmore (Sears) Whisper-tone Deluxe (re-braned from Panasonic). Purchased in 1997, it was the ‘top-of-the-line upright which Sears had to offer, ~$275. It was time to get a new one. So as I write this review, keep in mind the benchmark is a much older unit.

    – Lighter than Whisper-tone
    – Just as quiet as whisper tone. I noticed that uprights >$150 seem to be well insulated – with respect to noise and suction.
    – Multiple tools
    – Extended hose has good length, 6-8ft vs 11ft on my sears
    – Incredible suction on bare and carpeted floors.
    – Storage of on-board tools are placed well
    – rubber pads at intake to protect furniture, walls, etc
    – extra long power cord – this beats my Sears – and it had a long cord
    – Extension wand has a torque lock to prevent collapsing
    – Parts are more reasonably priced compared to kenmore (heap filter $18, Belt
    – handle is a bit flimsy when torquing or changing direction of vacuum.
    – Hose and power cord tend to twist around each other due to confined spacing at handle
    – Air powered hand tool is difficult to remove/place on the storage hooks – I’ll assumed this will be the first item to break.
    – plastic body and handle not as thick as sears (sears seem to be studier) however plastic technology and durability have improved in 17 years
    – Crevice tool not designed to be an extension for telescoping wand – this made my old sears upright more efficient

    Over all: I just used it for the 1st time today – I will update as necessary.

    RATING: I would give this a 4.5 stars (5-to round up) due to the durability of the handle and overwhelming plastic parts. If this survives more than 5-years… I’ll be happy.

    BTW:I bought this unit from Walmart for $157 not Amazon – at the time of this review, Amazon lists for $206 .

    It’s a BEAST- in a good way!, April 27, 2014
    Leigh Little (NV, United States) –

    This review is from: Hoover High Performance Bagless Upright Vacuum, UH72600 (Kitchen)
    I purchased this vacuum yesterday from Walmart for $119 (on sale from $168). I am not sure why the price is so high here on Amazon. This is replacing my 8-year-old Dyson Slim, and I live with my husband, two sons, two large dogs, and a cat. Needless to say, keeping the carpet clean is like brushing your teeth while eating Oreos.

    I chose this model over the Dyson, Shark, Panasonic, and Eureka because it is so similar to the Dyson, only larger. If you are looking for a wimpy vacuum that is light-weight, doesn’t have the suction to pick everything up, and cheaply made, stop reading now.

    When you go to the gym for a work-out, you want to FEEL IT! When I vacuum, I want something that FEELS like I am getting every last pet hair and speck of dirt off my floor. You don’t go to the gym for a stroll on the treadmill, right? This Hoover cleaned like I had not vacuumed in months! So I am highly impressed so far. Here’s my pros and cons:

    -A work horse!
    -Tremendous suction!
    -Easy to operate
    -Super long power cord
    -Large collection canister
    -Washable filter
    -Many attachment tools
    -Typical vacuum volume
    -Multi-surface floor capability
    -Many carpet length settings
    -Hose/Vacuum switch
    -All tools have no loss of suction
    -Rubber wheels
    -Easy to assemble and clean

    -The hose is rather short. When doing my stairs, I had to do halfway up, then go halfway down to reach all the stairs. Not a big deal to me.
    -The Pet Tool has the potential to take off a finger if you get it close to the plastic blades. (It is a great tool, though.)
    -The tools fall off easily, so I am just leaving them in the closet until I need them. I’m not going to complain about something I can rectify quickly and easily.
    -This model is very hard to push/pull if you do not get the carpet length set just right. That’s why I called it a Beast! I got a workout until I figured out the problem.
    -A bit heavy, but not unreasonable for the performance.
    -Buy it at Walmart for the cheaper price.

    THIS IS A SERIOUS VACUUM! If you are not in good shape, do not buy this. If you are up for a great performance with a little arm strength- go for it! You won’t be let down.

    Great on floors, but not so much on furniture, April 13, 2014
    mom1214 (AZ) –

    This review is from: Hoover High Performance Bagless Upright Vacuum, UH72600 (Kitchen)

    I just bought this vacuum yesterday at Walmart for $156 and I’ve already vacuumed my whole house (about 1,300 sq ft).

    The suction on this vacuum stayed strong throughout cleaning the entire house. It was easy to switch the carpet level (low to high when switching rooms or onto rugs). There is also a foot switch to change between carpet and hardwood floors – I switched this to clean onto my tile and it worked very well. My son always eats Cheerios and Froot Loops, so instead of picking them up I tried to vacuum them up. The cereal got picked up and didn’t get crunched up and spit out of the vacuum. The suction is strong enough to pick up the cat hair that hides silently on the carpet and gets pushed into the carpet.

    Our cat never seems to shed much (he’s part Persian, we believe, so he has fine hair). The vacuum picked up all the hair in the carpet that we didn’t even know was there. Our cat loves to lay on a blanket we set on the top of our couch cushions for him. Instead of washing the blanket and getting some fur clumped up and stuck everywhere, I decided to vacuum the blanket with the hand tools. I tried using the upholstery tool (the one with 3 red “flaps” on it) and it didn’t suck up any hair. the suction from the hose was very strong, but all this tool did was scrape up the hair to get stuck on one of the “flaps.” The turbo tool doesn’t have bristles on it to scrape up and bunch up the pet hair, but the plastic beater brush on the inside did bunch up the hair. It just didn’t seem to suck up any hair. We attempted using both tools on the couch itself and had the same issues. The tools just didn’t seem to pick up the hair, so I don’t recommend using the tools unless you need to clean along baseboards with the crevice tool (this works very well!)

    The filters in this vacuum are very easy to clean as well. The cyclonic filters on the inside are easy to wash out. Just flicking a button unlatches the bottom and is easy to empty out. You can further disassemble the filter and rinse it clean. After you clean the cyclonic filter, it’s very easy to assemble once it’s been dried. The rinsable filter is easy to clean as well – it just needs 24-48 hours to completely dry before you replace it, so that’s another con. But unless your house is super dirty all the time, it isn’t too big of a problem – just remembering to replace the filter before you vacuum next time is all that’s needed. I will always check the filters after each vacuum to keep it running at it’s optimal performance.

    Here are my pros and cons as of 04/13/14:
    1. Amazing cord length at 40 feet
    2. The suction power is very strong right now
    3. Filters and beater bar are easy to clean
    4. 7 floor height adjustments as well as carpet-hardwood adjustments

    1. Upholstery tools don’t work well for pet hair
    2. There are many parts to disassembling the cyclonic filter to clean

    Updates will be written every few months.
    UPDATE 7/9/14:
    A few months ago, I went to clean out the beater brush inside the vacuum. That involved taking off a rubber belt from the brush and a metal pin inside. Once I took it off and put it back on, my vacuum was making a weird noise – it sounded like smacking and clanging. I noticed that the one end of the rubber belt that went around the metal pin in the back wasn’t center on the part of the beater brush that it sits on. It was like it kept sliding to the side and not fully rotating the brush. I took apart the beater brush and belt combo and realized the belt had become too stretched. I waited for the vacuum to cool off before cleaning the beater brush, but the rubber may still have been very warm which caused it to over-stretch. I had to buy a new rubber belt from Amazon – I could get a 2 pack with shipping for the price of 1 without sipping from the Hoover website. After I received it and put it on, the vacuum still works great and there are no issues since with the belt.

    We’ve used this vacuum on our tile and carpet and it transitions very easily. The suction is still very strong, but after each use, I empty out the container and clean the filters. One of the main things to owning a vacuum is properly cleaning it out.

    I highly suggest this: Once a month or every other month, I’ve been taking apart the entire filter including the case around the multi-cyclonic filter inside. I thoroughly wash every part and carefully put it back together once it’s fully dry. Still no issues and everything runs smoothly. It’s a lot of work, but if you put the effort in this vacuum should last years.

    As for the pet attachments, nothing has improved. I rarely use them anymore because they don’t clean up fine hair from our cat as well…
