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 truly a humble beginning.

Rated 2 out of 5 by smells when it's running i bought this from [@]. my husband started using it but he didn't notice the moldy smell coming from vacuum. we had just had our first baby so i was busy with the baby and didn't care to look at the vacuum. once i started using it which was 3 months after we had purchased it and that's when i noticed the strong moldy smell coming from the vacuum. we have hardwood floors on first floor and carpet on second floor. we used the vacuum every 3 weeks (which is not often) and we have no pets. It's just a 3 family house. we don't wear shoes in the house either. so I have no idea how this happened. I am thinking it was already that way when we purchased it but my husband probably ignored it (he's not as sensitive or picky as i am). But I don't think it is healthy for our family to have this moldy smell. we've changed the bags multiple times but the smell is still there. we cannot return to [@] bc we are past the date of return. I only wish i had used it the first few times instead so I could have returned it right away. this cost [$] and i wish this had not happened so soon.. such a waste of money. 1/22/12
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love the vacuum but very noisy! I use this vacuum every day. Have carpet mostly. Picks up cat hair great. The only thing negative about this product is that it is very noisy. Other wise a great vacuum and I love the canister, very light weight and easy to use. 2/18/12
Rated 4 out of 5 by Still Great After Several Years I have had this vacuum for over two years. I like to wait to review a product until I have used it for a period of time. This vacuum is lightweight and easy to bring up and down stairs, can be lifted to do a quick job on stairs, is powerful with great suction and pretty easy to maneuver. It is a bit noisy, but not much more than any other vacuum. The bags are easy to change and last for a long time. It is so lightweight I even use it to vacuum the seats of furniture (getting rid of cat hair). Durable, efficient and well worth the money! The canister vacuum that came with the unit is very noisy and OK for hard surfaces and corners. However I find that the edge suction on the upright does a great job so I only have to concentrate on the corners about once a month. 3/30/12
Rated 1 out of 5 by Hate It I've always loved Hoover till this one. Who would design a high end vacuum that doesn't adjust for different carpet hieghts, and you have to drag out the smaller shoulder vacuum in order to clean the corners, baseboards... what...not convenient, very agravating... definitely not well thought out. I would not have bought it... my husband did because it had good reviews... now I'm searching for another vacuum... so it was a waste of money. God Bless for trying... 3/31/12
