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. A humble beginning indeed.

Product Reviews
Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 Disappointed I was excited about this vac since the reviews stated it went well from carpet to tile to hardwood floors. Well on carpet it was great!! But on my tile and hardwood floors not so much....I could feel the debris shooting back and hitting me on my legs and feet!! It did pick up things like a piece of hard cat food but anything smaller it shot back at me. 10/29/12
Rated 5 out of 5 by Greatest Vacuum Ever! Not that my other vacuum cleaners are junk, but I found this vacuum on the side of the street with all the attachments and it is now the best vacuum I have. I put a new bag, filter and belt on it and it worked like a champ! 12/7/12
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great so far!! Works great so far...got as a gift!!! 3/9/12
Rated 5 out of 5 by My best vacuum so far - after 5 years I use this daily and what I love about it is its power and suction. I have a D**on and this is still my favorite vacuum. The only drawback for me is changing the belt. It is not user friendly - you need screwdrivers and a place to change it. I wish it would just pop off and replace a belt easily, yet almost all the vacuums are hard to change the belts now. Now with the bags having Febreze - it leaves a fresh smelling room as well. I am on this site to buy a filter - it is so rare it needs one that I forget which one to buy. It just gets the job done and we have a Lab, so again, I use it daily. :) 9/8/12
