Bought the new Hurricane HP2305 July 1213. Within a couple of weeks the drive belt had broken.( We are now on our third belt) Changing the belt is fiddly too many screws; old Fashioned in it's design. The previous vacuum's belt only had to be changed once in the 8 years that we had it. Two months on, the handle catch broke off. A replacement with a much better quality handle. The new handle has a height adjustment feature which is a better idea. The cable is positioned at floor level. It… Read Full Review

There are really no elements that I actually like about this hoover with the exception of the bagless bit. It's so noisy it gives me headache and I can't count the number of times it has hit my legs or fallen over because the nozzle does not have any 'give'. I contacted Hoover about the noise and the nozzle but got an incomprehensible reply much along the lines of, you want it lightweight, it will be noisy. This hoover is no doubt a serious accident waiting to happen - those buying because… Read Full Review

This vacuum cleaner is a design disaster! Here's why..... *The vacuum is so light and the suction so powerful when using the hose, that the vacuum constantly topples over. *The flex is far too short to vac even a whole bedroom. *The flex runs from the base of the vacuum so it's easy to run over it and chew up. *The flex holder is far too small to hold it properly. *The only tool, a brush, constantly falls off its holder. *The dust cylinder is so small that it needs emptying after every… Read Full Review

It has great suction, that's it's only plus point. Annoying - The heat it gives out is incredible it is more like a massive hair dryer and so noisy I have thought of ear defenders. The thing tips over all the time if you dare to use the hose and hits you or worse in my case the TV. It has sucked the cable up and partially set on fire after blowing the house fuses. The pet hair attachment is broken and so is the belt after six weeks of light use it is going to the tip, there is no point of… Read Full Review

Worst vacumn cleaner I have ever come across and I work as a cleaning lady too. Didn't get on with it right from the start, flex unwieldy, on hard floors it just chewed up and spat out again. Been through 4 belts, taking it down the tip this weekend… Read Full Review

Although I have had no problems with the belts or the pet hair tool breaking, there was always a lot of movement in the handle and the clip eventually wore away. The flex is far to short. On the plus side, the suction was incredible if you kept the fiters clean, far better than any dyson I had used. Just a shame about the design fault. I bought mine through direct vacuums who refunded the cost so no blame attached to them… Read Full Review

i was bought this hoover as a christmas present not even two weeks ago. the hoover belt has snapped twice, i have only used it three times. when it comes to replacing the belt it near impossible to find hoover parts in the shops. the over all look of the product is good but not a patch on my electrilux. and after reading the reviews on this site, it seems things will only get worse… Read Full Review

THis is such a bad vacuum cleaner, we have used 3 belts in 6 weeks....simply by catching the edge of a rug!!
How can Hoover create a vacuum with such a short flex and a flex which comes out at the bottom, so you run over it if you are not very careful.
Also the belt design is a nonsense as is the dark red plastic dust holder, impossible to see when full.
A complete waste of money.....and I haven't mentioned the jet engine noise leve!!!!!. DON'T BUY THIS!!!!
We are returning to Dyson… Read Full Review

Bought this about 18 mnths ago via Tesco. Pet hair brush worked a couple times then failed....so did the replacement. The small brush attachment is a joke and the person who designed it has hopefully changed their career path. Also the attachments are oval so that you cannot use rounded attachments ......well you can if you take the tube fitting of an old vac. What a pile off rubbish....hoover should refund everybody whom purchased this product… Read Full Review

DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!
Bought in May 2010 and by the end of July it had broken down twice. Two broken belts later and a number of conversations with a terribly rude 'customer services' team I have had enough and will never buy a Hoover product again. This Hoover is not fit for purpose after only a couple of uses. I was told the reason it broke was because "I had probably hoovered something up with it." DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS PRODUCT… Read Full Review

We saved up for a new vacuum cleaner and decided to buy the Hoover Hurricane because my grandmother had one for years, it had a high power (2000W) and could cope with pet hair. However, soon after buying it, we found that the pet hair tool was completely ineffective. Later on the suctioning decreased because it was unable to clean the carpet as effectively when we first bought it. The dust should collect below the maximum mark but despite cleaning the filters regularly, the dust is… Read Full Review
