I am so happy with my new Hoover Air Lift Light vacuum. I've never owned a Hoover and I can guarantee after having one I will continue to buy Hoover products. This vacuum has great suction there is a button that says brush on the side and you push that when using on carpet. I love that I can use this vacuum on hard wood or carpet. I couldn't believe how much dirt that came up after using this vacuum and I vacuum everyday it just proves the suction is amazing and it gets deep down in the carpet. Another amazing feature with this vacuum is the bag less canister comes off and I can carry it with me while cleaning my furniture and my ceilings. I am in love with the long handle attachment that reaches my ceiling so I can make sure o have no more cob webs or dust absolutely wonderful feature that this Hoover has. It comes with attachments to vacuum your furniture too. One problem I've had with my last vacuum is the cord was not long enough, well again another great feature with this Hoover is much longer and I don't have to unplug it and move the plug to another plug in. The swivel that this vacuum has saved me a lot of time when I'm cleaning it's really nice and makes the job easier. I've never been so excited to bring out the vacuum my husband even loves it. This is the purchase you want to make when selecting a vacuum that has a lot of features it's light weight and really gets the job done. This vacuum is wonderful for getting rid of cat hair off your furniture too.
