do not recommend.
within a few weeks the head broke. I was sent a replacement head (not original and not meant for this vacuum) which falls off at least ten times while vacuuming my house.
I have never experienced this with any other vacuum.
Purchased in January 2021 at eBay for $150.
Not worth the money. Doesn't work on carpet.
Bought this vacuum a few months ago primarily because I have one long haired cat. The turbo head does not move when placed in carpet. I'm the cleaning of the head is fiddly. taking back for a refund.

Great vacuum but some design flaws
This is my 3rd Hoover. The first was definitely the best. The second- the wheels broke off. This one, so far so good but again- the cord is nowhere near long enough. Have had to add an extension lead. The biggest failing with this one is there is nowhere to store the accessories! Very annoying.
Nice & quiet & sucks well.

Great suction does the job well. Not easy to clean and can not imagine cleaning it if I did not have a air compressor.Still very happy with it. Good value for the price.
Purchased in May 2020 at Godfreys Online Store for $199.
For the price this is a great affordable vacuum cleaner. Does the job quite well and the suction power is excellent on carpet and hard floors. Has a selection of attachments including a turbo head which is great. Can definitely recommend this little beauty.

A great buy
So happy with my purchase the other day from the godfreys $149, I thought a little bit pricey for something that won't last long.
But seriously the best vacuum every , swear on it I have 3x cats and children the mess can get bad but it's worth ever can't

I hate this vacuum cleaner. It sucks 5 hairs & gets stuck & when you try to fix it the dust makes your house messier.
If is terrible and doesn’t pick up any hair. Lots of tiny parts that gets hair stuck after 10 minutes of use. I’m so over this product it makes me actually angry.

Great little vacuum
We use this on hard floors and soft floors, with two inside pets a long haired cat and a shar pei who both lose a lot of fur, this vacuum has been a blessing. Easy to use, and clean. It is pretty powerful for its size and has a nice little turbo sound.
Purchased in August 2019 for $129.
Light, easy and good price
My last vaccum died and I rushed to Godfreys and wanted to buy a good vaccum under $200. I saw this vaccum on special at godfreys and I have a dog with lots of hair all over the house so bought this one. It is great, I love it. Great suction, easy to move around, light and quiet. I recommend it and has a turbo head.

Quieter than I thought
We purchased this as a "stop gap" cleaner whilst we saved for a new Dyson as we already have the Dyson stick and love it so we were going to buy a new Dyson but our other full cleaner died.
This was on sale for $99 at Godfreys' so we thought as it had a HEPA filter we thought it worth trying.
We have found it excellent for both carpets and tiled areas. Very effective at collecting the dirt that gets walked in including sand and pet hair. The adjustable suction control to reduce power when doing tiles areas is an advantage. I did note one per...son commented on lack of suction maybe they should check where theirs is set at. Filter is easy to clean and clearly visible when it starts getting full. The best part was the shock of how quite is was compared to our previous cleaner (not a Dyson by the way) I'm not saying its quiet but it is compared to our previous one. We were so pleased we purchased one for our daughter who had just moved into her new home and the dust from the surrounding new development was everywhere. Her previous one simply did not get all the fine dirt up.

Questions & Answers
Hi, there is a small valve at the top of the barrel, in between the two ends of the handle. 1. What is this for? 2. Recently, the valve opens a few seconds after I turn on the vacuum, which makes the vacuum start sucking from the valve instead of the usual nozzle. How do I stop this?
Is this the part on the handle above the silver rod?
The Hoover Team
Hi Godfrey! No, it’s on the lid to access the HEPA filter and looks like a small circle with two lines. I didn’t even know it was a valve of some kind until it started opening on its own. I have circled it in the picture here https://imgur.com/a/1QZbPWB
Thank you for confirming.
This valve will basically tell you if there is a blockage in the machine the needs to be cleared.
Blockages can occur in the head, rod, hose, canister and filters.
The filters may also be due for replacement, we do recommend replacing them every 6-9 months.
The Hoover Team
How do I clean the dirt canister?
The canister can be gleaned out with a damp cloth or air compressor.
We do also recommend booking the machine in through Godfreys for servicing at least every 12 months.
The Hoover Team
The vacuum is very powerful. Love it! But can't find the suction control slider. In the manual, page 3, 10. Suction Control Slider (not shown). Please advise.
Unfortunately this is a misprint in the machine and has been corrected for future prints.
The only suction slider on this machine is the one on the handle.
