Hmm, Was good to start off with.
I got this vacuum about 8 months ago. At first it was really good the suction was great. But after a few months the suction became less and less powerful. I have cleaned it out several times, Going to see if I take it to godfreys and if they can service it or clean it out for me or something.
Good suction but build quality poor
Had issue with handle on dust container breaking. don't even touch it, its for cosmetics only. had it replaced under warranty. vacuum head not built to last, mechanism that joins the head to telescopic pole jams up inside and therefore it wont flex. was impressed to start with before all the issues.
Dust container handle not built to last. vacuum head cheap quality.
Cant get parts
Seemed to go alright but lost cone filter fell out when empting dust box now told by godfreys that may not be able to get new one,cant use with out it, what a gib.whats the point of buying something that they cant service,i thought that was against the law.
good when going
cant get parts
I was "sold" this vac about 9 months ago by Godfreys. I did check the reviews after buying and I was really scared! But so far so good! The suction is great.It is light and compact! My problems with this machine are: loose handles, and noise! and recently the engine makes a funny noise it's like something is broken inside!!
Strong suction, light, easy move around and change bags
Noise, loose handles
compact, great suction
Like every bagless vac it needs maintenence. If you are a clean person it will be the right machine for you for a low price. If you dont like to clean your vacuum buy the one with bag. In my family we have both (I like the bagless so i have that my mum uses the baged one) and any of us really happy with it. If we need any help we just go to the store where we bouth from and they always really happy to help.
small, strong, duble HEPA filter, easy to clean
The handle underneath tha machine is a bit small
Not that bad?
I also was "sold" on htis one by a Godfreys store - and was pretty worried when I saw all of these negative reviews. However I have to disagree - haven't had a problem yet (6 months later) wit the bagless model. It has great suction, is compact. It .... vacuums ....? Sure it needs to be emptied often, but I can live with that.
Needs to be cleaned after each use, and yes the handle isn't the most secure feeling.
So far, so good.. Cleans well, sucks hard.. Needs to be emptied after each vacuum as is a little small but just means is cleaned Regally ! But all in all has been a good vacuum to date. But probably wouldn't buy the same one again as was after a more powerful one for next time
Easy to clean
Well nothing as of yet, but after reading others reviews I'm kinda waiting for sum thing to go wrong now :/
From ok to just wish I'd never bothered !!!
I have brought a Hoover smart bagless and im having the same problem as every one below, i am constantly cleaning the turbo head and cleaning filter!! It is so much maitnence and still does so little. After every vaccuume i am emptying it and cleaning it, and sometimes before and inbetween! I feel like i have wasted my money !! It was so good when i tried it in the shops.
I am very disappointed !! It is only 5mths old. When i run over crumbs it doesnt vaccume them ... it spits them out the back and the side of the turbo head, i have too vac...cume over it really slow too see a result if i am lucky! ....i would say it Sucks but it actually doesn't. :( no handle too carry, turbo head gets clogged too easy, filter gets clogged too easy, constant maintence, expensive for the fact it doesnt do much, false advertisment saying it has no suction loss
This is the worst vacuum cleaner in the history of vacuum cleaners. I feel complete ripped off. It simply doesn't work. It doesn't even pick up a spec of grit on the floor, you literally have to take the head off and put whatever you are trying to vaccum inside the tube. The only way it even picks up hair or dust bunnies is because the brushes on the head gather it up. You may as well just use a broom, which is what I have resorted to until I buy something that actually works.
It doesn't work.
Absolutley horrible!! Going to purshase a new Vacuum today after putting up with this rubbisg today. It is a great vacuum if you adore emptying out the filters after every use, having the wand pop out and hit you on your toes, and if you dont want suction. It doesnt do fluff too...i have had to resort to picking up the rubbish off the floor and putting it directly in the suction hole. Also, it has this little red light that is meant to alert to blockages (Ibelieve), well that little light stays on all the time...even when the power is turned down to half. Rubbish. Great for wasting money, that is all. (And I believe I am being nice here.) :)
Hoover Smart Vacuum Cleaner
This product is absolute rubbish!!! Not only is it cheaply constructed but a real pain to use. I have 4 bedrooms to clean only and it constantly needs to have the filters cleaned out. The dust pan is only ever half full and there is no longer suction available due to the filters blocking up. I have even tried buying new filters and still after use on two bedrooms I'm back with no suction. Such a disappointment for $ 250. I will see how much longer I can tolerate it before resorting to a dyson.
Everything. Construction and poor suction.
Ok Small vacuum cleaner
Bought this 9 months ago, have a two bedroom + living-room/dinning-room apartment that's fully carpeted so need to empty the vacuum cleaner after each go.
After using it a few times the power dropped right out and I was going to bring it back, but decided to try cleaning out the filters first. Emptying it isn't enough you also need to take out three of the filters and clean them. Gets to be a bit of a headache as its not the easiest to clean and have to clean the filters every other time to maintain suction power. The vacuum does its job and as long as you don't mind the extra work to keep it going it'll save you on buying bags.
Keeps the floor clean
Not easy to clean, expensive
Who would of thought Hoover would make such a useless Hoover!?!
I had a Kambrook Jaguar that was a million times better than this & was half the price. I'm annoyed I allowed myself to be talked out of repairing it by the Godfrey salesman. I thought $250 would get me a good quality vacuum. I have a 2 year old, a long pile rug & this [censore] piece of equipment - very frustrating combination. I will never shop at Godfreys again. They must have vested interests in what they sell - or they never actually use a vacuum.
everything - don't waste your money. spend half the amount at target or kmart & get better quality/performance.
Used the 'Smart' Hoover for the first time today after the hard sell from Godfrey's (must have shares in the company. Wanted a Meile which was the best medium price vac according to Choice but they said it was rubbish and this was tops. Also talked into a Turbo head $25) and a Turbo Dust Filter attachment ($50) which doesn't even fit! Only way to pick up anything from my wool carpet (short pile) is to drag the vac one way only otherwise picks it up and then deposits it back onto carpet.
All the dust, poodle wool (not hair) etc gets caught in the brushes and stays there until manually removed
Don't bother even considering.
Needing a vacuum that was good for pet hair (I have two cats and a long haired Border Collie) but not wanting to spend $800+ on a Dyson, I was talked into buying this one, with a turbo head attachment. I ended up with the bagged model as the sales guy said the bagless would get clogged with all the fur...? Got home and tried it out. Had good suction with the turbo head but then it started electric shocking me, tried to use the normal head and it doesn't even fit. Also when trying to empty the bag you need to actually stick your fingers in to pu...ll out the dirt/fur, or I guess just buy new bags everytime you use it. And it has no handle so you can't carry it, good thing this house doesn't have stairs! Absolute junk. Taking it back today to get a refund and am just gonna spend the extra on a Dyson instead. good suction for pet hair poor design. attachments don't fit. bag is poor. no carry handle. electric shocks you.
waste of money
Smart by name but not by design .Got talked into spending $250.00 for a bagless 2000 watt vacuum cleaner. I normally do lots of research on this site which is an awesome resource, but this was an urgent purchase and I thought spending so much would get quality - that's what the sales guy said. It's just awful. It's got limited suction, the build quality is shocking, it's got no usable handle so carrying it upstairs is dangerous, the wand and hand piece are such a poor fit that unless you're a muscleman you can't push them together tightly enou...gh, so the metal wand just drops onto the floor ( or the furniture or my foot!!!) at random times, the suction varying slide on the hand piece doesn't slot into the groove properly so it whistles loudly unless you squeeze it closed with your thumb the entire time you're vacuuming. The bagless mechanism has a sieve like conical filter which gets so blocked so quickly I have to keep dismantling the whole thing and tearing the fluff and fibres out by hand. The piece on the wand for the attachments to clip onto totally negates any ability to get under or beside or behind narrow spaces because even if you leave the attachments off it's still a bulky lump so now I can't vacuum under my couch, beside the fridge or behind the hydronic heating radiators. But they even scripmed on the cord. I have to either leave an extension cord permanently plugged into it or disconnect when i get half way along the living room or the passage because the cord is so short, which I have never had to do in the past. Can't for the life of me work out what aspect of this is "Smart".

My parents have a Hoover All Rounder T4012. They didnt know about the filters and collection chamber in the main barrel. Long story, short - I discovered this and emptied it and cleaned the grey sponge filter. They dont have the manual. I need to know how to put it back together properly. Thanks
