I have had many Hoover vacuums. this one does the job and I was drawn to it because of the flexible dust brush. I find the flexible part is great but the size of the brush is large and it is difficult to place the whole attachment flat and get good suction, as in doing mouldings. I do miss the headlight, but didn't want the bigger vacuum. i like the weight and it brushes up the nap on the carpet great. I would order an additional filter as it is rinseable but takes long to dry.
I bought this vacuum 6 months ago and it worked well till tonight. We went to plug it in and nothing, wont start. We know it’s not our outlet as we tried it on multiple outlets and plugs in other items that worked with the outlet. Vacuum never fell and has been cleaned properly. 6 months isn’t long for a vacuum. Super bummed, might go back to dirt devil.
This vacuum is heavy, but seems to do excellent job of cleaning. I bought it for the additional wand length to keep me from stooping and bending to clean corners and edges with my bad lower back.
I bought it to help clean up after shedding dog and it works!
