Worse vacuum I have ever used ... .I regret buying this have had nothing but trouble don't waist your money....
Carpet and tiles both it doesn't clean at all it doesn't tip over its quite heavy looks good but isn't im very unhappy with this product wish I didn't waist my money. I bought it from Godfrey at St martins Village Blacktown nsw
Purchased in May 2018 at Godfreys for $650.00.
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.
Purchased in March 2020 at Godfreys Online Store for $349.00.
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!

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.

The most versatile vacuum cleaner I have ever had
I don't often call into shopping mall based vacuum cleaner shops, so this was a first. Our treasured Shark vacuum cleaner died and needed replacement. I spent ages on the internet building a short list and then happened on the Hoover Action powerhead. The shop associate (Godfrey's) was extremely helpful and really understood my needs which were: super compact yet powerful, easy to put away, long and retractable cord, motorised head, quiet when in use, good suction, bagless, stable when in use (ie. no tipping). Not too ugly. Well, the colour is...a bit garish but every other box was ticked and more. The floor LED lights are bright and handy. We have 2 rooms of carpet, the rest wood and tiles. Perfect. Our old accessories fitted so I don't need Hoover's rather lightweight ones. Long hose, adjustable wand, comfy handle and so very easy to empty and clean. It is mid-range price-wise but good value due to its quality. My 2 year old grand-daughter can even use it. And it tucks away neatly into a very small space. Very happy with the choice (and got a trade in for the broken Shark as well).
Purchased in September 2019 at Godfrey's Doncaster Westfield for $329.00.
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.

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.
