This Hoover Tempo wide path bagged vacuum is an overall decent vacuum to use. We got this as our second vacuum after having a hepa vacuum and thought that it would work out better for us. Though after having this for less than three months the motor on this vacuum went out on us. So we then had to have this repaired and it had to be worked on twice because it was still not working the first time. It has a great feature to pull the vacuum back once your propel it forward but sometimes it does not always work. It does perform well on suctioning when using this, however I have had many maintenance problems with this certain model and would not purchase again in the future. I would say that this vacuum is not very durable and kind of heavy and known to have many problems so I would not reccommend this to anyone looking to purchase a new vacuum cleaner in the future.
