Answer: 
Only if you buy the disposable-bag adapter (not sold by HD) and use paper bags. The filter didn't foul on hair or the odd bit of cat litter, but cleaning the cloth bag free of pet hair was a chore.

Yes. I have pets and hair gets everywhere but with this vacuum i can pick it all up no problem. Ive even used it to get all the dust and hair off the refrigerant coils under the refrigerator, which has added a few more years of service out of it. I also use it to clean the hairs out of the car too. But it works well for any hard to reach place high or low. Works great on the ceiling fans and the tops of drapes. You can also use it as a blower, it really is a handy little tool that is easy to carry around the house with you. It has a very long cord so you don't need to keep moving the plug. The bag that comes with it is washable and I like that because I don't need to locate and purchase bags, but if you'd rather just toss the full bag out there are disposable ones available, but they are kinda small so Id stay with the washable one. Hope this helps. Read Less

Answer: 
unfortunately not and the cord reinforcements at the case brake down readily and the cord is easily damageable if not coiled properly and it then becomes a trip hazard to use

Answer: 
No. The vacuum comes with a pretty sturdy strap that snaps around the handle and has a second, larger snapped loop to stow the coiled cord when not in use. (It's ambidextrous, so you can stow the cord on either side.)

Answer: 
No. The combination rug/hard floor attachment has a spring-loaded "floating" main brush with a mechanical switch that either allows it to travel up and down completely (for rugs) or only halfway (for hard floors.) The vac also comes with a hard-floor-only attachment with a fixed brush, which seems to work better on the tile or slate surfaces in my house.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 117 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best small canister vac This canister vacuum is the best for small jobs such as stairs, furniture, and cars. It reaches very small spaces and has strong suction. It also has a long cord which helps in big rooms and the garage. August 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Powerful Little Vacuum I like the performance of the vacuum but don't like the hose at all. I actually took the hose off of my old vacuum, which I have had since 1976, because it is much better. With the exception of the hose I am very pleased with the vacuum. August 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best hard Floor Vacuum Perfect vacuum for above head cleaning and floor cleaning. July 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SMALL, BUT POWERFUL! If I need a new vacuum, the only company I will consider is Hoover for my purchase- NOTHING can compare to a Hoover! I needed a small, but powerful, portable vacuum to use on my carpeted stairs and for upholstery (I have 5 cats). I was also looking for a small vacuum for quick clean-ups instead of using my big Hoover Wind Tunnel. I was anxious to use my new PortaPower on my two cloth covered recliners (one is covered in a suede-like material). I attached the rubber brush- not the bristle brush, to use on the chairs. It wasn't 5 minutes before I had both chairs immaculately cleaned! Not only did ALL the hair come off quickly and thoroughly, but the fabric on the chairs was even brighter as though they had been shampooed! The suction is powerful! For this kind of cleaning, I did not want to use the cloth bag because of the hair, so I used the option of the Disposable Bag Adapter set (paper bags). REMOVE THE CLOTH BAG before inserting the the Disposable Bag Adapter set; you use one or the other, but not both at the same time! *The Disposable Bag Adapter set is a separate purchase. The PortaPower Vacuum comes with a WIDE variety of attachments at no additional cost! Stay with Hoover products- you'll always have peace of mind using such an outstanding and reliable product...and NO regrets!!! August 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love it... Easy to use,small but powerful,long power cord.Love that I don't have to move chairs ,tables,attachments are great... March 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by As good as the original Bought this to replace one we received 27 years ago that still works though the hose and plastic tubes broke. This one is more powerful and has worked very well in our home with lots of hardwood and dogs. It has a long cord and all the attachments we need for our floors. Tthe only downside is the hose is a bit funky, sort of slinky-like and i worry it will not hold up which is the only ding in quality. February 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A must have along with your upright carpet machine. If you understand the shoulder strap concept this is a great machine. The strap and long power cord gives you flexibility to move around and get up and down ladders to get at those dust collection areas that are tough to access and no dragging around the motor that hangs up on furniture. (PORTABLE-POWER) The wand extensions and brush heads lets you get to those ceiling fans and light fixture. I added a long (2 1/2"}, soft bristle brush to my setup and it really helps get into odd shaped items and shutters. Great for tile and hardwood floors and the attachments let you access areas around the refrigerator and washer/dryer. I have a bag less, power house, upright for the carpets and I use it's hose option to clean out the bag on my Hoover. December 13, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Portable Vacuum This is s fairly basic portable vac but has very good suction. I bought it for someone who has a small living space. I tried it out to clean my car. It is a bit bulky. The hose is not as flexible as I'd like it but the suction was very good. There is a motor smell when it's running, and not sure how this will be after several uses. The price is very reasonable. January 26, 2016
