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 WindTunnel Bagless canister vacuum cleaner offers superior cleaning performance delivered by the WindTunnel power nozzle, convenient bagless design, and the electronic speed controls right at your fingertips. The WindTunnel Bagless has an ultra-quiet bagless canister, with a HEPA Media filter to reduce the amount of dust, pollen and pet dander in the air. The patented WindTunnel technology lifts and traps the dirt, so it won't scatter back into your carpet. Dirt ends up in your cleaner, not on your floor.

Rated 3 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good for a few years, then problems. We have had this unit for 5 years and it worked great for the first three, but then in about year 4 the power nozzle brush stopped working on carpet. It spins very fast when you lift the unit above the carpet, but will not spin on the carpet. Now we have a nice vacum for our tile, but not for carpet. I think there is a problem with the motor. 8/31/12
Rated 5 out of 5 by This would be one I would buy again I have bought two of these models. This is the best brand of vacuum cleaners I have had. The suction surpasses all other vacuums including the Dyson pet model the most expensive Dyson you can buy. The suction on the Dyson was very poor, to the point that it could not even pick up small pieces of bird food that went on my hardwood floor let alone the dog hairs. The only problem I had with this model was that the power bar kept turning off, when it did, the whole unit turned off. This must have been a manufacturing problem on the power bar. The company provided me with a new vacuum, their top of the line platinum model, which was great of them to give me their top model but I would have been happy with the same vacuum. I don't like this one very much because they have the small tools on the handle which makes vacuuming harder because it makes it heavier and the tools keep falling off as you are moving the wand back and forth. Also it's not easy to clean the container because the top has to be taken off with a screwdriver when the dirt gets stuck further up. I am considering ordering this model again and selling the one I have. If you have dogs, and I have three Shelties this is by far the best vacuum you will ever buy, and the price is incredible for what it does. 10/22/11
Rated 2 out of 5 by Control Handle is Poor Ergonomics I am so sorry I bought this unit! It is so combersome and awkward to use in reference to the CONTROL HANDLE! I am always changing the suction by accident or shutting it off. Lifting and moving the hole unit around is easy. I wish I would of kept my Celebrity '3' which I bought 40 years ago. Very dissapointed in this style of vacuum cleaner. Hoover better come up with better ERGONOMIC DESIGN that is easy to control. If they do, I'll throw this one away and buy the newly ergonomicly designed or another name brand, I prefer staying with Hoover, but I can change! 9/29/11
Rated 2 out of 5 by Carpet Tool Motor Fails <3 Years Later We have been faithful owners of Hoover for over 20 years but this product leaves our relationship with doubts. Vacuuming our home twice a week shouldn't result in the carpet tool motor weakening after 2 years of use, resulting in repeated stalling out (with the belt subsequently coming loose and needing repair). Replacing the belt and carpet brush did not fix the problem. 12/24/11
