Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 61 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Almost perfect vacuum I have owned this vacuum cleaner for several years and have been mostly happy with it. Love that I can wear it and it's out of the way and can't bash into walls and furniture. Works well on all our terrazzo and tile floors, but it's hopeless on rugs. It's easy to maintain- I just shake out the cloth bag and wash it occasionally. I've tried the disposable paper bags but don't feel the suction is as good. Hate how messy it is to empty the bag and how the cord twists and tangles. Also, the shoulders straps have both broken and had to be restitched. Not a glamorous vac, but very functional.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great purchase This is the 3rd vacuum like this I have purchased over the last 8 years. It is really worth the money. It has great suction power and is light weight. The belt system makes it easy to wear without worrying about back pain later. Home Depot is the cheapest for this vacuum. Thanks Home Depot October 27, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Really like this product! I have purchased several of these vacuums for a commercial cleaning business, and they work very well. I have bought more expensive back pack vacuums, and found them lying around with my guys grabbing the hoovers saying they are lighter and all around better. I read where some people will knock them, but either apply them in the wrong setting, or don't properly know how to use them. They just need to be patient, they will grow to love them. By the way, very rare to see a company respond to a complaint like I notice Hoover doing, hats off to Hoover. I would work for this company if I ever get burned out in the cleaning business which I sometimes do. Excellent price, durable product, and light enough for a female. I will keep buying them.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by This really works This website wouldn't allow me to update my last review on the first vacuum I purchased so, just as a quick note, any other cheaper products will only give you a headache. This vacuum is amazing. It has the kind of powerful suction I was looking for, the material is made of is very strong and durable. It works great in all types of flooring in my house and has done wonderfully picking up my pets hair. I recommend this one over the one I posted a review about a couple or so months ago hands down!. Great product. March 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Well worth the $$$ Put it together and go. Word to the wise don't forget its back there in small spots or door ways or you may need some touch up paint for the wall. I plugged in once or twice instead of a half dozen. Works a lot better than pulling a canister around and bouncing it off the baseboards. Great suction easy clean-out. Thanks Hoover. April 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by VERY HAPPY I do not leave reviews very often unless it is worthy of it.. I own a restaurant that normally takes 45 minutes to vacuum to do a good job and still hard to get every spot. With this vacuum there is no lifting chairs.. I honestly get the whole place done in 10 to 15 minutes. A better job than my Kirby. My vacuum did not come with any paper bags. But doing my study before purchasing this I ordered bags for this machine off amazon. I also bought the washable filters.. This machine is made to last and very happy I chose this one. I feel this is one of my best investments. If I feel differently about this machine in 6 months to a year I will add to my review.. I am honestly pleased with everything. September 14, 2015
