So do any of you all think that Hoover or should I say TTI will ever come out with a new upright bagged machine anytime soon possibly under the Hoover name?

Very Unlikely...

The only bagged Hoovers left are the Tempo, T Series and Platinum uprights, none of which are good. Those are likely to be phased out soon as well, as all consumers want these days are 1 year tools on board bagless cleaners. Eureka has already made the mistake of phasing out all of the bagged machines including the AirSpeed bagged, the Smart Vac and The Boss 1934B. A poor choice if you ask me. The Boss 1934B and Smart Vacs were decent uprights, and the only thing I ever liked that Eureka made. Now that they're gone, and with Hoover and Dirt Devil likely to follow suit, the ONLY bagged machine on the shelves at Wal-Mart will be the Bissell PowerForce Bagged. It's a decent machine, but the days of ubiquitous great bagged uprights are gone. I'd get a Tempo or something while you still can.

Hello. I think hoovers current bagged uprights aren't that bad. The tempo has been basically the same for the past 12 or 13 years they just removed the headlight, and it's a decent bagged vacuum I think. It's one heck of a deep cleaner, almost as good as the wind tunnel supreme. As for the t series and platinum, I don't mind them. The t series has problems with the base design, and the platinum is way too expensive for what it is. Although it would be nice to see a new refreshed design.

bagged canisters

I don't think Hoover or Eureka make any bagged canisters anymore either, that's really sad, because at one time both companies made some excellent bagged canisters that clean very well.

I have to respectfully disagree regarding the Hoover Platinum Bagged upright - I love mine! It is a simple, no frills vacuum that is easy to use and great at deep carpet cleaning. It reminds me of the bag-in-the-front Eureka Bravo I used to own except it has nicer conveniences like a 35-foot cord, headlight and 2-speed fingertip switch. It's also quieter than the Bravo. Yes it is more expensive, but I think it cleans deep carpets better than uprights costing twice as much.

Just wish TTI would sell it without the companion "PortaPower" canister which I find mediocre at best. They could knock off $50 on the price if they sold this great upright on its own.

I agree with Brian, I love my platinum series as well, imho it cleans better than an oreck and seems to be more durable. I have a t series bagged and it seems like it is a pretty decent cleaner as well Powerful, convenient and easy to use. As far as the tempo goes it is pretty much the same as a classic wind tunnel, powerful, easy to use and also durable. Cleaning personnel seem to like them for household and commercial cleaning although they are a household model they tend to hold up well let alone it is one of the longest running modern Hoover cleaners made.

I love my

12 year old Hoover Self-Propelled vac, and it's still going strong.. Just a great vacuum in general. It's my favorite from the WindTunnel series. At first I was under the assumption that this one was being discontinued. Last time I checked, it's still being sold.. even on the Hoover website, however I don't think I would buy another.. the quality just simply isn't what it used to be..

People still want bagged vacuums. If you read some product reviews they still want them. The problem is what stores like Walmart and Target want to carry. These stores want you to buy the bagless units because people won't think to clean the filters thus causing the vacuum to fail prematurely and then buy another one. If the vacuum is bagged and loses suction most people know to change the bag. With more people doing online shopping those who want a cheap bagged unit can do so from the likes of Amazon and eBay. Hoover tried to discontinue the Tempo once already and it failed because many people still wanted it. There was still demand for it. That means money for Hoover. Now don't get me wrong bagless is still very popular but slowly more people will return to bagged. It takes time to design and tool up for a new model. It also takes a lot of money. With Hoover making more money on their bagless units they are going to be slower on designing new bagged units. Most likely we will see some kind of redesign on the current bagged models.

Also there are always the commercial route. They may be more expensive but are usually more reliable than the household equivalent. My daily driver is a Sanitaire Duralux. Very bullet proof machine. It is heavier but if you can handle the weight it's very easy to use and a very good cleaner. The bags are a great size and are very simple to change just pull out the old one and drop in a new one. I believe Roger?, who runs the YouTube channel ibaisaic, did a real good review on the U.K version.

I feel the millenials are getting to us. Eureka killing off the 1934B and 4870 was dumb. Hoover bagged machines tend to be more popular in the refurb market. Same with Eureka.
