Great suction on all surfaces
I love this vacuum. I recently upgraded from an Electrolux bag less vacuum.
I have pets so I needed something that could clean efficiently and quickly and this does just that. I go from hard floor to carpet without needing to change the head. And with a flick of the switch I get extra power to deep clean the carpet.
Being a bagged vacuum its actually a much cleaner machine and doesn't need all the maintenance a bagless vacuum needs.
Only con is that it's a bit hard to maneuver around objects.

Was very surprised by the amount of dust sucked from my carpet the first time using the machine. Realised how much i was missing after my cheap kmart one broke. The power head is great for carpet, but the power needs to be turned down for rugs - or use the non powered head. Bagged which doesn't bother me. Does however have tendency to topple over with with little wheels.

Highly highly recommended
Wow, what a vaccuum cleaner. Cleans so neatly and nicely. So easy to carry around, even gets the hair out. Highly recommended. Been using it for more than 3 months and simply loving it.

I use this on thick carpets, hard wood floors and thin carpets. The suction is awesome and the vibrating function makes sure it picks up everything. The only downside is that it tips over easily and the pipe can get twisted. That aside, I still prefer having those extra clean surfaces!

it has so much suction power that it sucks up my cords aggressively enough to detach the whole plug from the wall
Carpet, tiles and floor boards. This vacuum cleaner works well on all these different types of flooring. The vacuum cleaner performs excellently on different surfaces it performed consistently regardless of what material the floor is made out of. It has no issues with tipping over.

An excellent product, I'm very happy with it.
I chose this in part because it has a bag, which I find cleaner and tidier. It has a large capacity so I have only needed to change the bag once in the 11 months I've had it. It's thorough, light to manoeuvre and picks up pet hair no trouble.

Don't think I could hate vacuuming more
Short chord, heavy body that flips over but reluctant to follow, small wheels so under carriage constantly gets stuck on chord!!!! (This is the most aggravating aspect). This is a cumbersome and awkward machine that make vacuuming unbearable. Power head on carpet does work well but were told we needed a separate standard head for hard surfaces as shouldn't use power head all the time /on hard and it actually doesn't work on hard, so you need to chop and change which is awkward and often difficult to remove. Advised the bagless version was not a...s good so stupidly went for bagged. Not only are the bags expensive, also got a separate chamber attachment at extra cost; this at least gives satisfaction of seeing dirt picked up. So the add on chamber is basically the only remote positive in this expensive saga. Clearly designed by someone who doesn't vacuum in the real world more than 1m Infront of them. After 18 months we all agreed ditch it on the curb for some other poor sucker to be tortured with and we now see the worth in spending extra money on a Dyson chordless.

Suction not great
After my Hoover core+ got downgraded to a shed vacuum due to it falling apart (no loss of suction) I decided it was time for a new one. My only option was to go another Hoover as my previous experiences are extremely positive. I purchased the Hoover Action with high expectations and it has been a disappointment. The handle and hose attachment are very flexible but I found the constant movement irritated my wrist and I was constantly untangling it. This vacuum has a lot less suction than my previous Hoover which I find frustrating, the power...head works fine on carpet but it takes some going over on my tiles and floor boards. Upon investigating the Hoover Action is 500w less than my previous one and boy you notice! The one positive for this vacuum is that it is very lightweight and the powerhead is more slimline. I am currently deciding whether to return tomorrow and pay an extra $200 for the bigger wattage Hoover....

We recently purchased a hoover action powerhead after owning a Dyson stick vacuum for a number of years. Wow! What a difference it makes to spend the money on a product that actually does the job well. We were recommended this product byt the salesman at Godfrey and we are so pleased we listened to his advice! Highly recommend.

Does the job
I bought this vacuum when I was living with my housemates dogs and cats. It managed to pick up hair best on carpet, but sometimes struggled sucking up items off the tiled/timber flooring. This vacuum has a vet short chord of maybe 3m. It makes for a very annoying chore having to unplug and use multiple powerpoints throughout the house. The vacuum comes with lots of different heads for cleaning cars etc.

The reviewer stated that an incentive was offered for this review
This vacuum cleaner is perfect for on all surfaces. Using the powerhead on carpet (only) gives an incredible clean and really lifts out the dirt. I can't compare or to any other vacuum cleaner I have used.
It is very compact and light weight, and makes storage easy.

Good Vacuum performance
The vacuum cleaner has great suction and definitely works well with the power head for dog hair. The power cord however is not long enough and I always need an extension cord attached. The wheels on it are very small and it tips over very easily. The flexi hose also kinks a lot as both ends don't swivel. It is a very efficient cleaner other than the other draw backs mentioned, but I also bought it on price and for the power head which is amazing. I also like the variable suction control for different uses, and it's very quiet.

Great Vacuum Purchase
Great vacuum if you have pets. Good suction and has a power head or normal head options. Works well in mats/rugs and hard flooring. Definitely sucks up all the pet hair. Relatively light and easy to drag around. Need to change bags but that isn’t a major problem for me.

Wish I'd read the other reviews before I bought it
I went along to buy another Nilfisk but listened to the salesperson and got sold the Hoover Action Pets instead. The cleaner head takes large amounts of pile off our (expensive) carpets. The machine's capacity is small so the bag doesn't fill properly and needs replacing after every clean. The cleaner head is too high and doesn't fit under some furniture and too wide so doesn't fit into some spaces. I still use the old Nilfisk floor tool on the tiles. There is no handle on top of the machine so moving it around is cumbersome. The hose gets a kink it. In short a waste of $400+. I'll abandon this machine and go and buy a Nilfisk, which I should have got in the first place.

Most useless vacuum cleaner I have ever owned
1. Very heavy and cumbersome.
2. Power cord too short.
3. Smooth floor head sweeps rather picks up dust, especially on tiles.
4. Always having to clean the brush on this head as keeps getting blocked up with dust and fluff.
5. Won’t roll over the cord as the wheels are too short.
6. The power head works ok on carpets but the other head is useless on carpets as doesn’t suck up small bits of fluff.
7. Tips over easily

we just bought a 5007ph action pets vac. what setting should the variable speed dial be set to?
The suction strength needed will be different for all flooring types.
There is a guide on the machine showing curtains, upholstery, rugs, carpet and hard floors, the images will light up as the dial is rotated.
