Hoover Platinum Lightweight Bagged Upright with Canister (UH30010COM) (3/14/09)in general, this is a great vacuum. The person who will be happiest with this mix is the person who: (1) wants a lightweight vacuum, (2) has usually carpet in their home, (3) has carpeted stairs, and (4) uses attachments. I liked my old vacuum, so using the LBU was an eye-opening experience for me: I did not realize how much effort I was exerting with my old upright with attachments – not only heavier, however so much bending and stooping to change settings or get tools. At 11 pounds, the LBU is 2 to 3 pounds heavier- but less costly – than competing models. Bonuses: it has a longer cord and a stair cleaning handle. Competing models -Hoover LBU, 11 lbs list 300/retail 300 (will include canister), 6 yr warrantyRiccar RSL5; 8 lbs list 710/ retail 500 (without canister), 3 yr warrantyOreck XL Gold: 9 lbs list 600/ retail 500 (will include canister), 5/10 warrantyOreck XL Platinum: 9 lbs list 800/ retail 600 (will include canister), 10 yr warrantyAll of these uprights (as well as the LBU) are alike to commercial models, however you do not get the same auto carpet height modification, lifetime belt, HEPA filtration, and warranty on commercial models. The supplementary canister has a strap and a 25 food cord. I did not like it the 1st time I tried it, however the second time I adjusted the strap to fit me (DUH.),, then I LOVED it. The canister carries the crevice and brush attachments on board, so switching is easy, and the wand is extendable. (I do not use the floor tool, because I use a stick vac on my hardwoods. )ADDED ADVICE (9/9/09): I have been using my machine about 6 months.
1st, a notice of kinds. I am a long-term, died-in-the-wool Hoover evangelist. No, I do not work for Hoover, however I have generally used them religiously for over 30 years. I have tried switching off to other top-of-the-line brands (Oreck, Eureka, Kenmore, etc. ), but I generally return to Hoover for their unsurpassed cleaning power and dependability. That doesn’t, but, mean they were perfect. The Hoover WindTunnel U6439 bagged upright that I have had for the last some number of years could suck up a Buick. Unfortunately, it also rivaled a Buick in the weight group. Though it is supposedly a “self-propelled” model, I felt like I had to go into training to vacuum my house. It became something I could put off because I was not sure I had the strength to wrestle this bulky beast all over my house. The WindTunnel controls which let you to change the brush height from carpet to floor were manual, hard-to-move levers on the brush housing which obliged you to shut the machine off to properly control them. The HEPA filter on my old WindTunnel seemed to work only for the 1st few months. After that, all manner of airborne particles could fly around as I vacuumed, after I cleaned/replaced the filters. Lastly, sound of my last WindTunnel was something akin to a jet taking off. When I saw a TV commercial for the Hoover Platinum series machines, I was certainly intrigued. I loved the idea of to get two separate vacuums together for one price (smart marketing idea there, Hoover). But I was cynical; could the power of a Hoover really be housed in something that weighs only 11 pounds? I’d tried other lightweight vacuums in the past and their suction was doubtful at best.
We read the overwhelming positive reviews and decided, with confidence, to purchase our 1st nice vacuum. We were very happy with the upright vacuum. It is lightweight just as others had promised. It sucked up everything and felt cool to operate. Big bag, nice filtration, excellent light and comfy design. We were happy. Then came time to vacuum the hardwood, linoleum and stairs. I took out the “useful” shoulder-strapped canister, placed the floor tip on and went to work. OUCH. This thing is so deafening and bulky. The motor whines with a deafening high pitch when tools are on and it only does an average job of sucking up our normal dust and dirt. The on-board tools fall out every time you pick up the canister and there is no cord rewind at all. Just the cord. (No hooks & no rewind choice) The Hepa bag is tiny and fills now. The substitute bags are not cheap either. No way could I put up with this. We are normal people that require a versatile quality vacuum to keep up with normal demands and this two-part mix is unfortunately not worth the money. We returned it to Best purchase after 2 weeks. Nice job on the upright Hoover. BUT it is back to the R&D labs for the canister. We went to a local vacuum shop and bought a Riccar Vibrance with on board tools. It is heavier than the Hoover, however it has amazing suction, on-board tools and is made in the good ole USA. It came with a 3 year tune-up and 5-year warranty. I give 3 stars for the Hoover Platinum set only because of upright, however just can not go any higher due to crappy canister.
