answer 9
Asked by
sparkman
Virginia
April 6, 2013
The simple answer is yes it includes wooden and ceramic floor. The feature "bare floor" simply means that the rotating brush used in the carpet mode is turned off. The brush will then not mar the "bare floor". If it rotates (spins) when using on any type of bare flooring it could scratch or mar the surface. The suction continues to pick up any loose material.
The feature works as it should and the vacume does not cause any damage to any type of hard surface.

This is my second purchase of this model. The first one lasted over 10 years until I wore the brush out, and the suction lessened. I would not try to vacuum without these features.

Hi Mamacass616! The WindTunnel Self-Propelled will work for pet hair. That is not a problem. With your conditions the Self-Propelled feature is very convenient and easy to use. In regards to the high pile carpeting the WindTunnel Self-Propelled has a manual height adjustment feature, which will raise the base of the cleaner for high pile carpeting. Hope this helps!

My wife and I have owned a Hoover Wind Tunnel self-propelled upright vacuum cleaner for over four years. We're both 68 and we've used it on thick carpet, high pile, low pile, hard floors and have never had any difficulty with the self-propelled feature. It is heavy, so carrying the vacuum up and down stairs can be a challenge. We don't have any experience with the vacuum and pets but I have heard the Wind Tunnel is not great with pet hair.

There is a hose on the machine. You pull it off, add your attachments and continue. You do not need to turn it off when switching to attachments.
There is a longer extension hose you can use for stairs. You need to purchase this separately as it is not included with the vacuum. It makes life easier for those long reach locations, i.e., drapes, ceilings, etc,

We suggest you go with something that is more sleek and lightweight, such as model-UH70400 WindTunnel® Air™ Bagless Upright. It has a low profile design, maneuverable, and has the ability to lay flat so that you can reach under furniture. Check it out on our website and let us know your thoughts, we're all ears!
