So last week, I ordered myself a 10 pack Sebo micro hepa filter bags after watching one of YouTuber Hooverlux’s videos of his Hoover Senior and Australian Convertible. Can’t wait see how well these bags will perform! I’m planning on using these bags on my other classic Convertibles that uses bottom fill bag tubes!

in my opinion, hepa is way over rated and trusted. the only 3 ply green vintage hoover c bags filter plenty fine.

Here’s what it looks like after trying to put in place for like 15 mins. A little short but does anybody know if there’s any longer Sebo bags?

The bag inflates well but the vacuum is hugging the carpet! Excellent!

That is a terrific idea to make a HEPA Cloth bag for a Hoover Convertible. If you want a longer bag, I would think a generic Miele U HEPA Cloth upright bag would be slightly longer, & you could modify it the same way to work in the Hoover.

What an awesome idea. I've always hated the Hoover Convertible because the single-ply bags clog almost immediately, and belch dust. I might actually like one of my Convertibles after all. Thanks for the heads-up.

Kirbylux77, I think the Miele bags you mentioned are the same length of the bags I have. Maybe soon I’ll try out the Hoover type Q hepa bags.

Absolutely love it! I’m all about finding creative ways of shoving HEPA bags into old vacuums!

I forgot to mention this like over a year ago but I did use a Kirby micro hepa cloth bag on my Deluxe Convertible U4189 and Eureka HotShot and I think they performed very well still. I learned it from a vacuumland member, air-waycharlie.

I say to hell with Hoover C bags! They’re so messy to change! I use Eureka F&G bags with my Hoover U4003.
