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.

Rated 2.7 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Needs a upgrade..... Purchased this product for a client and it is not what I expected. Does not come with everything you need..... Does not do well on any carpet that has any kind of pile other than flat. Needs a power head with revolving brush. The hose and extension do not stay together well. - had to tape together. Suction is pretty good, but not great. Am disappointed in this vac..... 1/27/12
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Basic Canister for Quick Cleanups I was not expecting a lot from a low priced product like this. However...it has surprised me. Pet hair pickup is actually pretty good for a suction only vacuum and it is surprisingly quiet when running. The vacuum is very light and easy to use. I noticed people complaining about the tools falling off. That did not happen with me because I gave them a slight twist when attaching them....all nonlocking tools need that. Personally...I like this little vacuum. It is great for quick cleanups and a real treat to use if you have a bad back like me. A real bargain for a good little canister. 3/21/12
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for my needs I live in a tri-level in the country and am often invaded by bugs - most notably Asian ladybugs and box elders. The best way to get rid of them is by vacuuming. Research does not find any efficient pesticides or other methods. I have one of these vacuums on each level. When the bugs are here, I don't have time to run up and down stairs to retrieve my vacuum and plug in, etc. Suction is great for bugs and other loose objects or stuff like loose pet hair laying around. I do not use as a vacuum for my carpets. My main use is for bugs and vacuuming out the car, etc. Handy for the stairs - carpeted or not. 4/2/12
Rated 1 out of 5 by Poor design The wand is too short when fully extended. I'm only 5'5" and I have to bend over to hold the wand. Usually in 20 to 30 minutes of vacuuming, the hose will come off the wand 2 to 5 time. Very fustrating. After only about year of use, retractable cord stopped working, couldn't get it out. Had to use an extension cord to use then vacuum. Husband tried to fix it, but couldn't get the canister apart. Cord is also shorter than most other vacuums we've had, so have to change electrical outlets more often. When pulling the canister by the hose it would often flip on it's side or back. 12/1/12
