Bought the Hoover Pet Action to replace the wonderful little Hoover Smart. I explained that I had a small apartment style living where storage was a consideration to purchase. I was told that this was an upgrade to the Smart.
Totally disappointed with the Hoover Action Pet. Suction was acceptable however
1. The cleaner is heavy and not very maneuverable. It would frequently tip over onto its side or back
2. The head is so large that it would not easily fit under furniture
3. It is bulky to store, requiring to be broken down into individual parts before stowing. This made the cleaning process less convenient.
The Hoover Smart had just as good suction, and none of the issues mentioned above.
Purchased in July 2018 for $479.00.
Good for carpet, useless for everything else.
First the good: Extremely good with the power head on carpets, does what it is meant to do.
Now for the bad: its bulky, tips over easy, the cord is WAY to short, its hard to get into any small area, the power head is only good on carpet, on tiles it is frustratingly terrible at suction to the point that I find it quicker to bend over and pick up anything other than dust. I had always used Dyson before and got suckered into buying this from a very persuasive saleperson. I am now going to buy another Dyson and throw this thing in the cupboard to be forgotten about.
If its only for carpet I would rate it 3 out of 5 deducting stars for the short cord, bulkiness and habit of it tipping over
Hard to move around
As others have said its hard to move, a bit heavy, and the hose always seems to some how get twisted and kink, which is annoying. Cord an extra 2 metres would be useful. Hard to get it to stand up stable for storage. Persuasive salesman talked us up from a more basic barrel model and i regret it. The powerhead feature looks impressive but im not sure how much it really does or if its more of a gimmick.
Hoover Action Powerhead
I was very happy with it for months but it just doesn’t have the power it had when we first got it. It blocks up easily too. It does work great with the small turbo head we purchased for an extra $30! Simply not worth what we paid for it. Disappointed.
Very impressed with the lightness of the powerhead, unfortunately that is about where it ends. For the price of this vacuum I expected a lot more. My previous vacuum was also a hoover and lasted a long time, this one after 12 months I am replacing it. Not only am I continually cleaning the filters but it is always blocked. Now you would think, okay it is blocked because they are vacuuming up things that shouldn't be - if only. It is blocked with just usual fluff and dust from the carpet, to me it can't be sucking as good as it should be a...nd the fluff and dust is accumulating and getting stuck. We can clear the hose and pipe and there can still be suckage problems, sometimes think the angle of the handle doesn't help. I would suggest for the money look at something else.
Gets clogged constantly
I would have done better with a $100 vacuum than this one. Forever trying unclogged everytime I vacuum.. I've only got a small house and this vacuum can't even cope with it. Very disappointed. I will not buy this brand again. I would not recommend this vacuum to anyone I know.

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.
