Rated 5 out of 5 by Really! Best Purchase Ever We have a Golden Retriever that spreads hair all over the house and this vac gets into every corner and under furniture that other vacs cannot. I've used the dyson and gtech which work good but not like this vac.Superior suction and utility. It's well made and I use it just about every other day. November 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by solid value...great performance Easy to use. Weight is not an issue for me. Works well for a tall person(6'4"). Easy to dump out and you have a second chance to retrieve those small Lego pieces or other small treasures before dumping. Bit dusty to dump content is a minor thing ...so don't empty inside. Sucked up Christmas tree needles without lodging...so good suction. Attachments make it easy to use for first pass on dusting. Super easy to vacuum edges of carpet against walls. Wont replace regular vacuum for carpet but perfect for all else.not particularly loud but if used for work recommend ear protection. Cord lenght allows for access over large areas. December 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Now On 3rd. Hoover c2401 First off. I had difficulty figuring out switching out floor attachments on first Hoover c2401. Once figured this out I was blown away by this machine. I purchased first one about 18 months ago. Second one 1 year ago, third one about four months ago, and will order another within two weeks. All machines still work great although I am also needing to order a few 14 inch floor brushes as we use these a lot. I own a small cleaning and janitorial company and can tell you that these machines (on average) will allow you to (vacuum/sweep) a floor around 3x-4x faster in a commercial setting than a non-backpack vacuum. They make cleaning of tile/rubber, concrete and wood floors 3 x to 4x as fast as regular sweeping as well. On thick pile or super plush or shaggy carpet they will be totally worthless as they have no beater bar. We are in Florida so this thick "NORTHERNER" carpet is super rare for us to come across anyway. If you have a cleaning business, these will save you thousands per month in labor costs and they are virtually indestructible with even the most "challenged" or "destructive" individual using it. We give them the two floor attachments and throw away the rest to avoid employees dropping and then tripping over a circular attachments. I think this vacuum is by far the best commercial vacuum I've seen with by far the best warranty that covers commercial use (i.e. several thousand hours) per year of harsh use for two years. For consumers and household users though, I would still recommend a commercial rated push vacuum as this vacuum is really intended for cleaning companies. August 19, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Perfect solution Performs and achieves our needs perfectly! Light, easy to use and vacuums effectively. October 21, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Vacuum Honestly I was a little scared to spend so much on a product with a lot of mixed reviews. But Im glad I went with it. Its a great product. Lacks in the instruction department but you dont have to be a genius to figure out how to take stuff apart and put it together. Bags for it are difficult to find though so I had to order off of amazon. But its a great product and does fantastic work!!!! Love it! March 14, 2014
