Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Outdoorsman82 Beast mode vacuum
After years of my wife buying hideously awful machines from other sources I finally decided I was getting a good commercial unit. I had previously purchased the Hoover PortaPower commercial to take care of our tile, hardwood and furniture. That unit is a powerhouse so I was expecting nothing less. It came almost ready to go. Attach the handle, plug in and go. This thing eradicates pet hair and I love that it's bagged! No dumping out dirt cups to spread allergens back around your house. Just throw the whole mess away. It even came with 10 extra bags and a belt.
Very happy with this unit. Would buy again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TommyB Gift to replace
Just recently bought this as a gift for my wife to replace her Riccar upright vacuum. Her old vacuum still works great after 20 plus years just needed a belt replaced recently and the cord replaced a few years ago, will use it downstairs in finished basement. This new vacuum is great only problem is the storage of chair nozzle the clip is loose and will not hold it in place so we store it in a drawer. So far vacuum is well worth the choice and price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sadie absolutely the best
having owned a lot of sweepers and spending a lot of money only to be disappointed I finally found the right sweeper for all my floors. It works great on all levels of carpeting and rugs and bare floors. I've tried everything from kirbys and less expensive sweepers only to be disappointed. This sweeper also works great removing cat hair,dog hair and parrot feathers. My only regret is not finding it sooner. It also is very well made (heavy duty) and seems to have fixed the on/off switch problem I have had in the past with previous hoovers. Buy this sweeper now,you won't believe it til you use it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Owl78654 Assembly and Registration only
Assembly relatively simple. Instruction book is difficult to read, fonts are TOO SMALL. Pictures helpful but difficult to figure out the position of the vacuum in some cases. Had to put pressure on the handle to get the holes to line up for the bolts to pass through. The orange cord would not fit into the "clip", which was designed for a much smaller cord. I modified the little notch where the cord is supposed to fit. I do not recommend this modification for most people. I am an experienced handyman and very good with tools. I had to more than double the size of the notch for the cord, before it would fit. Observations: The unit looks sturdy, not cheap and flimsy. The weight seems reasonable. I have not used the vacuum yet, so cannot comment on performance.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lynn33 What else could you ask for?
I have been using Hoover vacuums for a long time. I recently purchased this model (C1703-900) and it is my favorite vacuum cleaner ever! It has great suction. I love that it is only 13" wide because it is so easy to use, it fits where others are just a little too wide and it is easy to carry. I also like the 35' power cord.

We have been using these vacuums in our cleaning business for about 10 years. Yes the body is made of plastic, but does this vacuum suck. Everyone that works for me now has one in their home. Just like any appliance you have to maintain it. We have heard rumors these are no longer being produced. We will be sad to see them go.

This is a rare bagged vacuum and we're very happy with it. It's powerful but easy to maneuver across our carpets. I like the rugged orange cord because it's very long. We've had it only a few weeks, so it is hard to talk about durability, but I like what I see so far.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hmazar very good
Nice vacuum. It is noisy but it definitely does a good job at an affordable cost. Purchased this for our church cleaning and now maybe thinking to purchase another one
