A user’s Hoover U5268-970 TurboPower EmPower upright vacuum cleaner review says: “The Hoover U5268-970 TurboPower EmPower upright vacuum cleaner is a big improvement over my old machine. It picks up dog and cat hair wonderfully with it’s pet hair attachment. It also has good suction. I especially noticed a difference when I ran over the same carpet with this vacuum and my old one. This one picks up everything left behind by the old one – although some of that may just be because this vacuum is new. Lastly, I love that this unit is bag-less. It will save money and is less hassle.
One thing I wish they would improve is the length of the attachment hose. It’s just not long enough in my opinion, especially trying to drag it behind couches, etc. Also, the vacuum is hard to pull backwards sometimes. But even with those flaws, I would recommend the Hoover U5268-970 TurboPower EmPower upright vacuum cleaner to anyone.”
