i just thought id let you all know that in my personal opinion the new hoover turbos are jank i got mine just before christmas after domestic and general wrote my maytag windtunnel off (same as the bagless american hoover windtunnel with the dual chamber) when i picked it up i got home and was really excited put it all together and then my bubble burst cheap TTI made crap it was heavy extremely hard to push on my carpets the machine fell over evrytime you used the hose the the hard floor tool could only used with the crevice nozzle the turbo brush was not very turbo and all the inside got jammed up with animal hair and the whole cyclone unit had to come apart it was very noisy and the cable was annoying as it came out the bottom of the machine, the tool holders on the sides broke and the duster brush snapped needless to say its now sat in my friends loft i wouldnt recommend them at all mine was the tol model what a load of old shit

That isn't good news about the Turbo Power. I wasn't aware that Candy (Hoover's home company) were making TTI machines - Hoover U.S are a different company under that merger and they don't have a U.S equivalent of that machine - yet.

the hoover multi cyclonic windtunnels are very similar just a design variation for the uk i think i can safely say it was the vacuum ive ever used dont get me wrong its got loads of suction but its also got a lot of noise to go with it. this thing was so heavy to push i had to use both hands to push it around oh well there are probably people out there that have bought them and think they are exellent lol

I doubt it is any harder to push than my 1993 Philips U800! That thing sticks to the floor like super glue.
