The suction on this vacuum is amazing! It's lightweight easy to slide around and is relatively quiet. It's super easy to clean and it's filters are very practical. the arrangement of different attachments come in handy and make this vacuum very versatile. I love it! I have a dog inside and it never fails to suck all of the hair out of my rugs and couch! I use it everywhere and I cannot fault it.
Amazing cleaning power
I love this vacuum cleaner, well worth the money. I also bought a filter attachment for the hose so I don’t ruin the engine when my darling child tips out flour on my carpet. Very easy to use, love the motorised foot. I have vacuumed my lounge three times now and it is still picking up dirt and dust that my precious vacuum cleaner left behind. Totally in love with this product. I actually look forward to vacuuming now!
Very happy customer - excellent product and great value for money - easy to move around on carpet and timber floors - great customer service when I purchased it - power head is wonderful - would highly recommend this product to family and friends looking to purchase a new vacuum
The performance of the suction was the best I've ever seen/ used. Having a dog that's breed is Alaskan malamute (meaning it sheds A LOT), has meant that our carpets were covered with dog hair. Other vacuums prior to this wouldn't do well enough. The hoover we purchased not only easily picked up the masses of hair but was powerful enough to suction up the embedded hairs as well and everything deeper in the carpet.
I highly recommend this product, for a deep clean to your carpets and has been extremely easy and stress free to use.
Does a great job!
This is a great vacuum cleaner. The powerhead works really well, especially for our cat's hair (ragdoll with LOTS of fur). Overall has very good suction, and easy to use. Sometimes hose kinks, but probably no more than other similar style vacuums. I'd buy this one again. Great all rounder.
I like this vacuum
I purchased this from Godfreys earlier this year and I am quite happy with its performance. The blue light on the power head is a really great feature that I would have not thought necessary but is probably my favourite thing about the vacuum because it shows areas that you may have missed. The powerhead itself is great and helps lift more dust from your carpet. This vacuum is so quiet!! I can vacuum late at night without disturbing the neighbours or the rest of the household. One downside is that it's not bagless however we have the bag saver ...attachment on the vacuum pole and rarely need to change the vacuum bag itself. i have a really messy partner who doesn't think to take his shoes off at the door and tends to make a lot of mess in general, crumbs etc, so we use this vacuum several times a day in a 4bedroom house and there has been no loss of suction. I would buy another one if it were on sale, I wouldnt say I love it but I like it a lot.
A great vacuum cleaner to own if you have carpets or pets (or both)
After my piranha died, I knew it was the last time I'd buy a cheap vacuum cleaner, so, my partner and I went to our nearest Godfrey's to look for a decent one. I originally wanted a stick vacuum cleaner, because I find them easier to deal with physically. When we were told that all of the stick vacuum cleaners were sold out, the sales person directed us toward Hoover after asking us what we were looking for. (He tried to sell us a 700+ dollar one, but that was beyond our budget) Then he showed us this one, and told us all about the powerhead te...chnology, gave us a demonstration and all that too. I was not only impressed with what it could do, but also that it was bagged, and the prettiest turquoise colour! Naturally, we bought it and took it home. It brought the carpets up to almost new! The vibrating head and the LED lights on it make it almost a complete joy to use. It has different suction levels for the types of floors, rugs, curtains and upholstry you can use it on, which is both really nice and innovative as i have never seen another vacuum cleaner do this. For me, there are cons as well though. As mentioned above, I prefer stick vacuums, and even with the Hoover, that remains the case. I find that the drum is akward and almost unstable when in use. It does not move very well, and for me, it requires fair amounts of yanking on the hose to bring it closer to me because it's quite heavy. It's also horrible for turning around corners as it will either collide with the wall (which I don't like, because the house is a rental), or will flat out fall over either onto it's side or roll onto it's back. Lastly, the hose is also known to kink, which is also very annoying. Having said all that, we now also own a stick Dyson, and I now use that more often than the Hoover, but having used both, I can tell you that in terms of actual vacuuming, the Hoover definitely stands up for itself. As far as I'm concerned, there is next to no difference in the end result between the two. I really only use the Dyson more because it's easier for me to use. I still bring out the Hoover and use it when I feel like it, and will alternate between the two. All-in-all, it's a very, very good vacuum cleaner, and I am glad we bought it.
A shockingly bad design.
This is without doubt the worse designed appliance that I have had the misfortune to use.
1. It's 'Action' head inlet shape is just one big trap for even the smallest item, so needs constant clearing.
2. the expandable handle is also a serious trap, which also needs constant clearing.
3. The cord id ridiculously short requiring the user to replug in every room.
I think Hoover should have the design team of the 'Action Pets' model swap places with the buildings cleaners for six months, that way we would probably get really well designed and ...
Trusty vacuum that picks up so much dust
The main things I was looking for from this vacuum were to pick up hair and dust. This vacuum does both of those things very well. The salesperson at Godfreys initially sold this to me as he asked whether anyone in my family has allergies (yes - two family members) and suggested we try this and see if symptoms improve. My son's sniffles stopped within a few days of vacuuming his room with this.
We now use this vacuum every few days, and it is both satisfying and scary to see how much it picks up. Could not live without this.
Looks like a toy but is a real adult joy.
I had a Dyson which would not pick up pet hair. One would have to go over and over and over again to get it to pick up dog hair from the carpet. But not so the Hoover Action. One sweep and it's almost gone. Two sweeps and like magic,no hairs. This Hoover model is perfect for anyone with a dog. I would say that it has about 5 percent less suction that a Dyson but I find that the suction on the Hoover is more than adequate. I like the 'Guy Mitchell blue' colour which gives it a bit of a 'toy ' look. But a toy it is not. It is easy to manoeuvre a...nd the power head is just a credit in the design department. I have not had the opportunity yet to wash or replace the filter. On my particular model Dyson it did not have a washable filter. I prefer a washable filter then you know that once washed, it will be clean. Only one problem with this machine is that the extension cord could do with an extra metre. Good value for the money. Why pay a couple of hundred dollars more when you obtain this particular model that will do the same job?
This was a really good vacuum when I first purchased it. It collected Everything! It started to lose a bit of suction within the first six months so I had it serviced. Still not as good as when I first purchased it but it seems to get the job done

Wonderful product with extreme high power
I'm editing my review after 6 months of usage...
It cleans really well, the motorized head cleans properly when using it on the carpet. We have used ones before where carpet appeared clean, after using this one, it sucked huge amount of dust from the carpets where we were able to tell the difference from the dust bag. It's really amazing with 5 different vacuum power modes.
We don't have pets so we haven't tried it vacuuming pet hair.
1- Affordable price. ($350-400)
2- Five different vacuuming power modes.
3- Can do really good job on floors and normal carpets.
Pet hair be-gone!
The suction for this product is fantastic and very easy to manouver around the house. With two dogs we find this product great in collecting the pet hair we are plagued with. We use this successfully in a three bedroom house with carpeted bedrooms and the rest is hardwood floors.

Great cleaner for the price. Got this cleaner for my sister as her other cleaners werent picking up the dog & cat hair. Love the powerhead , the suction is fantastic. Also love the attachment for the furniture as we can now sit on the couch without being covered in hair. Love the fact its got a bag as you then dont have dust going everywhere when you empty the vacuum.
Very good product
We are very happy with this product, it has additional motor for suction and it does a very good job. We got it from godfreys for $320, but found it cheaper in costco's.
Overall we are happy with the production and only minus is we should clean the drum quite often and hair structs.
This is a great vaccum.
This is the best vaccum we have owned it has a spinning head witch is great for picking up hair and even dirt that gets into the carpets. Its very powerful not like a lot of vaccums that don't pick up hardly anything it is also a bagless vaccum as I hate mucking around empting bags or changing bags. its well worth the extra few dollars we had to pay. Highly Recommended.
Great Hoover BUT .......
We were impressed with the demo for this Hoover and bought it there and then, had it a couple of months now and though it does a great job the drum is a massive pain to use if it can get caught any where it will it tips way too easily and chips the walls whenever it hits them, basically because of that we wouldn't buy another hoover with a drum an upright is a far better option and way less hassle.
Easy to use
Love this vacuum cleaner.It glides over the carpet making it easy to push.The turbo head is great and picks up a lot of dirt.The bags are cheap to buy which is a bonus.I love the fact all parts are solidly made and not with a flimsy plastic.Having adjustable suction for rugs and curtains is a great.
Carpet clesning is brilliant BUT..
Pros..Carpets never felt so clean...the power head gets up every little dog hair...love it. Very quiet and the bags hold heaps...
Cons...the hard floor head is a disappointment, only has brushes on one side, the other side is a rubber strip...luckily the head of my previous vac fits so i use that for hard floors.
The cord could be longer and it does topple over easily...
Every time i hear something rattle up the pipe i worry that it might damage the wiring, only time will tell.
All in all, i am pretty happy with it thus far...the power head makes it a real winner if you have pets.

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.
