Customer Reviews

Anniversary WindTunnel Self-Propelled Bagged Upright Vacuum Cleaner is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 776.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Vacuum I ever had I love the Windtunnel vacuum, and have been using this model of vacuum for 20 years or so. My current unit was purchased in 2005. It is only now (2019) needing some replacement accessories parts, that I am considering a new purchase. I recently got a hole in the extra long hose I normally use. I still had the shorter hose so I am using that, but it hard to go back after having the super long hose! The only other issue is the extension wand's plastic connections are starting to break down and chip, but is still usable. I have given this vacuum a lot of use and it has been a workhorse. I highly recommend the Wind Tunnel Anniversary model. It is bagged with hepa filter bags and has additional hepa filters, which have really helped with my allergies all theae years. The Y bags and hepa filters are readily available and reasonably priced. Truly a 5+ star product built to last.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from problems from the first This Vacuum is Very Loud. I have to use ear plugs, it is a high whining sound, awful. The hand attachments kept falling out of their storage areas, I used Velcro to hold them in, bad design. You cannot carry by handle, must carry from special carrying handle. The self-propel can go to fast (out of control) this feature not so good for me. For lightweight rugs you need to do leg acrobats to keep rug from clinging to cleaner, really hard to use on lightweight rugs. You have to have a screwdriver to remove the screws from the bottom plate which is not handy for removing debris/pet hair/threads that impede the cleaning process. It is really hard to replace the belts, there are no instructions on getting the flat belt out, need small hands and good eyes. If you are assembling be sure you read how to "Attach Handle" 1000 times, I suggest you contact Hoover for the complete instructions as the instructions in the manual left out a few things.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love all the features I love my new Ann. Self-Propelled Wind Tunnel Bagged Upright Vacuum. I love the utensils to use when I need them. I especially love that it has the self-propelled feature. Makes it so much faster and easier to vacuum. I love that it has the lights that let you know if that specific area is clean or not. I also love that it has the feature that lets you know how full the bag is. I like the different settings for carpet and hard floors with the selections of height levels. I have loved all my Wind Tunnels that I have ever bought. I have given my daughter one that I had bought last year and she was so excited to get a Hoover. I gave my granddaughter one of my vacuum cleaners that was also a Hoover that was probably about 4 yrs. old and she was so excited to have a really good vacuum cleaner and not a cheap vacuum that she had bought. And yes, I buy a lot of vacuum cleaners and I always buy Hoover Wind Tunnels. I think they are the best vacuum cleaners I have ever used!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The last REAL vacuum cleaner out there. This is our third Hoover Windtunnel power drive vacuum that we have purchased in 20 years. It is the only vacuum that we used that doesn’t stink, and I mean stink, all these so called bagless vacuums out there smell after a short time, no matter how frequently you empty the container or wash the filter. I love the fact that you just throw away the bag and insert a new one. This machine never loses suction and it always smells fresh. The fact that it is power drive is great, it is almost effortless to use it. The dusting brush is a little flimsy but we use one from one of our other vacuum cleaners. It would be nice if the hose accommodated an additional hose to couple together to allow the use of the 2 wands with a conventional floor brush. A hose that is of non Slinky like material. We like it so much we bought 2 more and have them stored away Incase one of our machines finally needs replacing. I feel it is one of the finest vacuums out there for the money. Please don’t discontinue this model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome!!! This is a very great vacuum for the price!!! I recently bought this vacuum at the store for a very cheap price! It actually really doesn't matter if it's remanufactured or not because it's pretty much brand new. Also when I bought it, it came in green, not blue like in the stock photo. Anyways, I love the self- propelled and the suction on this thing!! Wow!! And other nice things are the Embedded Dirt Finder, bright headlight, on/ off brushroll switch, nice long cord, and the suction on the hose. The tools are also easy to use. When the self-propelled feature is on, it actually really pulls you and takes you back too!! And usually, I would prefer bagged from bagless. It's even better then a Dyson!! I have owned Hoovers all my life and this one is definitely one of the best ones that I have owned. The ONLY thing I don't like is the weight. It's a little bit on the heavy side so I wouldn't recommend this to a person with a bad back. Other than that, great vacuum and I totally recommend it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Features Well Suited to High Rise Homes I own two of these uprights, one in Chicago and one in Lauderdale, and I think they are the best in class for a propelled upright with on board multisurface capabilities for homes without easy access to an external or well ventilated dumpster. Relatively light weight with a well placed hand grip, it is easy to lift, reposition and operation. In self propelled, it responds to the light push/pull of the hand to provide serioua movement across deep or tightly woven carpets Its impressive suction is restored to highest possible level each time you change the onboard HEPA filtering bag, which can be easily changed withou lost dirt. (By contrast. It is not possible to properly clean a bagless vacuum's dirt chamber within he confines of a high rise refuse drop chute.. The variety and placement of cleaning accessories allows claaning of most siurfaces without resort to other devices. The primary annoiancds are: height level switch drops to "low" during use; the catch to lock the handle in upeigtt prosition becomes more difficult to engage; hand tools tend to fall out of parking clips when handle is held low.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from hoover and customer service I, like other reviewers, bought his vacuum based on consumer reports testing results. I, also like other customers had problems with the unit. I have purchased two of these units since approximately 2003. I had the same problems with both of the vacuums. The first unit, I figured, was just a manufacturing problem. I had the exact same problem with the second unit. The problem seems to be the mechanism that holds the handle in the upright position. I have not read other reviews that state this problem. The problems I had had nothing to do with the suction aspect of the machine. This vacuum is excellent at cleaning. the suction on this machine is very strong. The tools are convenient to use and store easily on the vacuum. I gave extra stars for the customer service I received from Hoover. I contacted Hoover, and within a short time a representative reached out to me. Hoover was very anxious to make things right and I applaud them for doing so. I recently received a new vacuum which is performing as well as I expect. Thank you Hoover.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A real big headache! After owning a Self Propelled Concept II, which had no cleaning tools, I decided to purchase a new self-propelled vacuum cleaner.  It worked fine for all of three months, and then it wouldn't "drive itself." I have zero strenght due to a broken back, so I have had to really struggle with this machine.  It went through so many belts, I quit counting, and was in the shop a lot.  The spinning pet brush had to be taken apart all of the time due to poor engineering, and I even had to replace it, because the screws would not hold the cover together, and the machine's brush roller never cut off when upright, so the smell of burning rubber made me have to cut off the power, as smoke would often come from the bottom.  As of right now, I am downright angry that I've had to replace this vacuum cleaner with another one that actually works.  Sad that the integrity of this machine cannot come near to that of the Concept II, which still works after decades.
