Hoover WindTunnel Ultra Upright Vacuum U6434900

Rating: 5 out of 5
  • Currently 5.0/5.0

The Hoover WindTunnel Ultra Upright Vacuum U6434900 is in a league of its own. The vacuum uses Hoover's patented wind tunnel technology which results in a cleaner environment since more dirt is removed than if you use a vacuum from another manufacturer. The vacuum also uses a self-propel feature that makes vacuum almost effortless. If you are allergy prone or live in a dusty environment, this vacuum will make your life easier.

The cleaner has a carpet adjustment feature and an embedded Dirt Finder that checks to see if the area is clean and tells you if it is not. The bag has a HEPA filter which traps dust and dust mites. The vacuum also has a monitor to let you know the bag needs to be changed. Included accessories are a stretch hose, two extension wands, a crevice tool, upholstery too, and a dusting brush.

I could not believe the amount of dirt this machine extracted. I completely filled the bag when I vacuumed one room. I have used other vacuums with HEPA technology and I can honestly say that this vacuum is worth the purchase. An air freshener tablet keeps the air smelling fresh as you vacuum. The vacuum will also shut off if it overheats.

All of the replacement parts are affordable. I have not had a need to replace anything other than the filter and the bag, but it is nice to know that I will not go broke replacing anything else. I have read about the problems other users have had, but I have had no problems. The user manual is detailed and easy to follow. The vacuum cost $295 dollars and comes with a one year warranty.
