Keeps giving and giving

published

Bought it almost 5 years ago and it is still going strong. Suction power is still incredible. At some point last year it felt like it was losing power so I replaced the filters (very cheap) and after doing that it was like brand new.

Purchased at Godfreys.

I LOVE it!!

published

I have been through so many vacuums in my time that I can’t even name half of the ones I have bought. I saw the Hoover online with some great reviews and because of the covid lockdown I knew I had to buy something based on reviews alone. The vacuum was also on sale which was great but even without the sale it was really reasonably priced. I have spent $1000s on vacuums over the years only to have them not have the strength to pick up everything in the carpets or to clog up really quickly. I can happily say I have finally found a vacuum that I am happy with that actually WORKS! I will never spend huge amounts of money on the ‘big fancy brands’ again. This one is a winner for me

Purchased at Godfreys for $200.

1800Watt, Very Good Suction Vacuum Cleaner

published

Very good suction on carpet, timber floors and even if you have pets inside.
Maintenance and taking care is very important of any products, washing and drying or replacing filters would keep the vacuum cleaner for pro long use with good suction.
Highly recommend this powerful 1800Watt Hoover Vacuum cleaner

Purchased in at Godfreys for $149.

Terrible made in China product

published

Only after using it for less than 3 months the suction level drops. Cleaned many times, nothing helps. This vacuum frustrates enormously. Vacuums back from the 80s were much bother. The Hoover company and brand lost my respect and trust.

Purchased in at Godfreys for $99.

Useless

published

After 1 month lost all suction, even though we cleaned the filters, impossible to get your floors clean, this is definitely the worst vacuum cleaner I have ever had so will avoid this brand in the future for sure

Excellent

published

Fantastic works exceptionally well on a tiled floor. Picks all the pet hair, it's quite, light weight. It sucks better than my dyson upright, only downside is the short cord but that's easily fixed with extension cord. Dust bin holds alot no need to empty before finishing the house even with all the pet hair which is bad now as it's summer one big dog & three cat's two of cats have long hair. No regrets purchasing this at $99 on sale was a bargain.

Great unit!

published

Previously had a Samsung vacuum which was a great unit, but if had electronic controls on the handle, which after a while broke, so could only control it by plugging it in at the wall outlet to turn it on. Eventually it literally blew up.

I wasn't sure what to expect from the Hoover tornado. It didn't really seem to give the appearance of being anything special.

When I got it home though, I was, and still am, very impressed! Great suction, easy to move around, great filter, and nice big chamber. I can do my whole apartment and still not need to empty the chamber.

Very pleased with this guy.

Purchased in at Godfreys for $249.

It is apparent that I have the same problem as many others with this vacuum suddenly suffering the loss of power and overheating when it has no blockages anywhere and has always been well cleaned. There is obviously a common fault they can suffer from which the manufacturer must know by now. I don't have original purchase details and would only ask that the experts tell me what part in particular fails so I can get it fixed as there are no Godfrey dealers out here. Thank you.

Hi, I was cleaning the cone filter and the silver part came away from the rest of the cone filter. Is this suppose to detach from the filter? Tried to put it back together, but it won't stay on. Can see that theres little lugs that match up? Any help would be appreciated, Thanks Sharon
