The Hoover Windtunnel Vacuum is a lifesaver when it comes to vacuuming up pet hair. I have a long-haired cat that sheds often and I've gone through vacuums more times than I can count. I bought this particular vacuum because it is rated exceptionally well when it comes to cleaning up pet hair. This vacuum is durable and I've had it for well over 3 years now. It is a noisy vacuum though. My favorite feature is the retractable cord. The cord is long enough and this vacuum is easy to maneuver. The only trouble I've had with this vacuum is when we vacuumed Christmas tree pine needles. That seemed to clog up the vacuum and we had a struggle to take the vacuum apart to clean it out well. Once we figured out how to do that, the vacuum has been working well since then. If you have pets or hard to clean areas, this little vacuum gets the job done. For the price, I'd say this is a great bargain.
