Cons of Hoover WindTunnel Anniversary Upright Vacuum U5491900:

  • Hose is short and tight, does not stretch out easily. When you try to use the hose and the attachments to reach a bit far, you easily pull the unit and it tips over.
  • No switch to turn off the brush roller, it does not stop spinning while using the hose. Remember to turn off the vacuum cleaner before disconnecting and connecting the hose to hose tube, or it will blow dirt and hair out.
  • Does not work well on hard floors. Some people complained that it spits dirt and kitty litter while vacuuming hardwood and tile floors.
  • No auto cord rewinding function.
