The Hoover story begins in 1907. Murray Spangler, an inventor who worked nights as a janitor, had an asthma problem. He called upon his inventor's creativity to find a solution to the dust that aggravated his asthma as he swept up at night. Spangler gathered a tin soap box, a fan, a sateen pillow case and a broom handle, and assembled an odd-looking, cumbersome contraption that managed to pull the dust away from the air he breathed. He quickly realized that this "suction sweeper," as he called it, had enormous sales potential, and he began seeking financial backing. W.H. "Boss" Hoover, owner of a leather goods manufacturing shop, bought the patent from Spangler in 1908, retained him as a partner, and soon had six employees assembling six units a day in a corner of the leather goods shop. Now that's a humble beginning.

The fade-free power of the Platinum Cordless Stick Vacuum and its interchangeable 18 Volt Lithium Ion battery is nearly unrivaled. It ensures the battery sustains power until it is completely drained. The Platinum Cordless Stick Vac is the first cordless stick vacuum with Hoover's patented WindTunnel Technology, which utilizes 3 suction tunnels to lift and remove even the hidden dirt on carpet. In addition to its lightweight design, this top notch vacuum cleaner lets you easily move between carpets and bare floors with the one-touch brush roll activation, and the edge cleaning bristles for closer access to walls and corners. The Hoover Platinum Collection Cordless Stick Vacuum combines cordless convenience with powerful upright performance.

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 195 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Outstanding product for quick clean-ups! EXCELLENT design. Make no mistake. This IS the same power as an upright with the convenience of a cordless stick vac. Their WindTunnel design is also the same (a good thing) as on Hoover's traditional vacs. I was pleasantly surprised at the run time per charge - up to about 15 minutes in my tests. I would advise paying attention to the small, foam filter at the top of the dirt cup, cleaning it fairly regularly. It's easy to do. Remove it, wet it under running water, add a few drops of dish soap and mush it up like you would a sponge. Rinse thoroughly, squeeze well between a couple of paper towels until as dry as you can make it. Re-assemble at the end of the day and it will be dry and ready to use the next morning. Also, the central part in the dirt cup is easily removed with a little twist counter-clockwise. Take it out to remove debris and put it back. REALLY EASY. And also pay attention to removing wrapped-around matter from the brush in the head. That's all the maintenance required. Hardly a problem, but important to mention because no product in this category can be made maintenance free. The warranty is also excellent at SIX YEARS (except for the battery and charger that have their own generous two-year warranty). [...] The bottom line - this is an EXCELLENT product. Their handheld version has the same power and benefits, though there is no powered brush. Both products revolutionize their categories with best-of-breed offerings that will not disappoint. 1/1/09
Rated 4 out of 5 by I love the convenience!! I love that I can just grab it and clean up crumbs from my kids all around our hardwoods. And especially that it does so well switching to the carpet and rugs also!! It doesn't take all day for the battery to charge up...only a few hours. The convenience of it being cordless is just priceless for our function of it. The only thing is I wish the battery kept going just a little longer, but that's really my only complaint. Thanks Hoover for another great product!! :) 12/31/08
Rated 5 out of 5 by Outstanding Cordless Vacuum Cleaner We were furtunate to be able to obtain an advance model of this outstanding vacuum cleaner. We now use this vacuum for all our household cleaning needs. It has a two way switch so you can use it with or without its rotating brush, for hard floors or carpet. Dirt emptying and filter cleaning is a breeze. Has good suction for our short nap carpet, is light, relatively quiet, and the 18 volt battery provides good power. I intend to add an extra battery so whole house deep cleaning can be done without interruption. Initial assembly is a breeze, with only one bolt needed to complete installation.. This vacuum is highly recommended. 1/4/09
Rated 5 out of 5 by A cordless vac that actually works The price for this vacuum is much higher than other manufacturers; however, after paying less for other brands, which didn't have much suction, I figured I would pay the higher price for this Hoover product. It was well worth it. If I ever have to buy another one, I will buy this one, or the then-current Hoover model that is comparable to this one. 1/2/09
