I purchased this Hoover Widepath FoldAway Upright from Wal-Mart fro about sixty dollars and have been very happy with it. It is bagless, which I really like. I have several animals and this vacuum really hold up to the test. It does not clog easliy. It was very easy to put together and just as easy to use. You can adjust the carpet height settings. It has a wand to get to those small places where the vacuum cannot get to.
It is easy to empty and clean the filter. I luckily have not had to replace any belts, so it holds up very well. It is lightweight and easy to transport. You can even use this vacuum to clean stairs. This Hoover picks up well and is extremely durable. It has a twelve amp motor. It comes with a full year warranty from Hoover. I would highly recommend this vacuum.
