Description
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 Hoover Platinum Collection Bagless Cyclonic Canister features a Multi-Stage Cyclonic Filtration System, which means that the air going thru the filter is cleaner than the air that was pulled into the vacuum so that the filter will stay clean longer, and the vacuum will have no loss of suction when cleaning. The patented WindTunnel Technology features three distinct air tunnels to lift and remove dirt from carpet, preventing dirt from scattering back onto your clean floor. A detachable telescopic wand and a variety of on-board tools make it the only vacuum you'll need for a floor-to-ceiling clean. The HEPA Media filter traps 99.97% of dirt, dust, and pollens down to 0.3 microns. The Power button, suction control and brush roll on/off switch located are all conveniently located on the handle for even easier use. The easy foot pedal control adjusts the nozzle to accommodate different carpet heights and floor types.

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Really Not Happy This vacuum does not pick up alot of stuff. I am sure that the dirt in my house isn't that different from anyone else's. Everytime I vacuum, at some point I have to stop and clean out the glop of dirt, dust, and dog hair from the neck between the regular vacuum floor attachment and the tube of the vacuum. It is way more work that it should be considering what we paid for this vacuum. Highly disappointed! 3/28/12
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does it's job! This vacuum works very well on carpets and especially if you have dog hair! Its a GREAT price for a great working vacuum 3/27/12
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE LOVE LOVE I am thrilled with the vacuum itself as well as the whole order proceedure. Very nice people to deal with, and even got a discount AND FREE DELIVERY to Canada. Could not get much better than that. I went to the consumer report to find the best recommended vacuum and it was HOOVER!! I bought this vac site unseen, and when it arrived 5 days later.. (including Christmas), I was totally thrilled with everything about it.. the suction is amazing, but the best thing to me was the extented wand for vacuuming.. I am tall and NEVER found a vac that extented this far.. I have nothing bad to say about the whole experience. I thank HOOVER for the great service as well as the great vacuum.. I only hope if anything goes wrong with it, (which I doubt), that I will continue to get the same excellent service.. thank you again.. signed, one happy Canadian customer.. 12/26/12
