  • Great product.

I've been cleaning houses for going on 10 years and this is the ONLY handheld canister I will use. It's powerful, has all the attachments you need, lightweight, long cord, and can do everything an upright can do and more such as getting in all the tight spots and under most pieces of furniture. I also like that it has a washable bag. This is my 3rd one in 10 years because I use them EVERY day...a lot. The motors still work on all 3, I am rough on them and break parts on them...I cut a cord on the last one and ran over the hose on another.

  • This is my 3rd one. We were always Hoover...

This is my 3rd one. We were always Hoover fanatics because of their strength and performance. We killed the previous two by trying to suck water out of inflatables. Oops. The beauty of this little beast is that it can both suck and blow, better than a Shop Vac. I can blow out my pool lines.

Bought it for wife who used to have cleaning business using an over the shoulder Dirt Devil 18 years ago. That one got yard sold when wife changed careers to substitute teacher. Now both retired and aging accordingly. Wife doesn't like pushing and pulling around Dyson Ball lightweight which I use all the time. Preferred to use broom and dustpan on hardwoods and slate tiles. Wanted lightweight over shoulder strapped vacuum to do better job and retire broom and dustpan. So I bought this unit which she loves even more than the trusty old Dirt Devil she thought so highly of and used in her cleaning services business years ago. Thanks Hoover!

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.

I like to use it when vacuuming stairs because I can hang onto it like I'm carrying a purse - the canister only weighs about 8 lbs. I like the attachments and that it can handle both hard flooring and carpeting.

This product was something my exboyfriend had here at my house and it was surely missed when he left and took it with him. I scoured online to make sure to get one exactly like it for the least expensive. Home Depot won and sent it to me promptly. I couldn't be happier.

  • Great vacuum, but I have to go elsewhere for accessories?

Lightweight, well-made and powerful little vaccum: does a great job on my hard floors and just as good on the stair carpeting (and isn't a wrestling match like my 15-year-old canister vac was.) It's also quieter by comparison (though it can seem loud since I'm generally toting it over my shoulder) and doesn't make the lights dim when I switch it on. I'm pretty sure one of my grandmothers had a previous version of this, and it looks like Hoover's still building them to the same standards. The only reason this is a four-star review instead of five: the PortaPower comes with a reusable/cleanable cloth vacuum bag, which is not a joy to deal with if you have a cat. That's not the issue: the vac can be converted to use disposable Type N bags...but Home Depot doesn't sell the adapter kit or the paper bags. I would have ordered them with the vacuum in the first place if I could have; as it is, I had to find other sources. (Including a local hardware store that had the bags on sale for $1 for a 5-pack, so I'm now good for a year at least.)

  • Great purchase as far as I know. It was bought for one of our other facilities and I don't actually use it, but haven't heard anything negative.

This product is similar, only newer as one we have been using for a few years. Very helpful. Good size.
