Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Cleaner!!! Just received my Guardsman! Power and cleaning capabilities are awesome. The carpet is clean and groomed. This is a modern incarnation of the American Classic, the Hoover Convertible. It is well built...metal handle and handle bail. The 50 ft cord makes it possible to clean long distances with having to plug the cleaner into every outlet in the room. I wish Hoover would make belts more readily available. Anyone who puts this cleaner down must have no experience in vacuuming floors. Well worth the money! Not the cheap bag less, filter dirtying, dust chugging vacuum like what everyone buys today.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by These clean better than the yuppie vacuums This is our second commercial grade vacuum. There is more suction and more beater bar control than vacuums four times the price. There are no attachments that you never use. Wish the on off switch was more convenient. The power cord is long enough to do several rooms. February 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A to Z clean I got this vaccume starting out in my cleaning business and i love it! It is light weight and very easy to use. It gets the job done right. After using this vacuume I would not want to use any other for the job at hand. January 3, 2010
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good product runs well easy replacement bag access like the on off button placement & cord length. Easy to put together nice features good cord length, on off switch in a good spot October 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This product is great for cleaning under low objects! I was looking for something that was heavy duty, light weight, and could go under and in between church pews. This was the best choice for the job. If you want a good vacuum and don't need attachments then this is an excellent choice. July 4, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Vacumm for the larger home. I was looking for a cleaner without all the attachments. Took me awhile and I am very happy that I stayed with the search. I am very happy with my new cleaner. One problem that I have with it is that it has a 35 foot cord and really nowhere to store it. I coil it up and the weight of the cord tips the cleaner over. Other than this, I am very happy with it and it cleans very well. February 20, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Basic, Good Value Vacuum Cleaner We bought a $200 vacuum with a canister thing for our apartment building and used it every day for a year. Well, it died on us and I decided we needed something a little more durable / commercial. So far, so good. This is a bare bones cleaner, but I'm hopeful that it will last us for years, not months. Easy to assemble and easy to use with no annoying attachments. June 4, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Vacuum Appears Durable, Powerful I assembled this vacuum and delivered it as a gift. Assembly was easy. Vacuum appears quite durable. A quick test confirmed strong brush action and suction. Not too many features, but I didn't expect much on this basic model. Fewer gizmos to go wrong! December 25, 2012
