Worst vac ever


Don't waste your money. Continually tips over, the filter falls out on one of the wheels every time I use it, and the head section either falls out while you're using it, or it's so tight you can't separate it to put it away. Worst vacuum I've ever had.

Purchased at Godfreys for $159.00.

Pocket rocket!


My mum has owned Hoover vacuum cleaners for decades.. Couldn't beat them.
With that philosophy in mind, I knew what I wanted for my apartment.
For the price, this little pocket rocket is amazing. It's bagless, compact, has a sturdy, powerful motor (at times too powerful - it will suck small items unnecessarily if not careful) that won't overheat after 15 mins use, and comes with some attachments.At around $180, it was superb value for money. Highly recommended for at least a one bedroom apartment.

A cute little all-rounder vacuum cleaner


It's not a Dyson or a super powered suction machine, but my little Hoover all rounder from Godfreys does me nicely. Light and easy to move round,simple to empty and clean,I love it. It is usually used in two rooms only. My only issue is the occasional item that too easily clogs the tube,but that is not a frequent occurrence and easy to fix. I hadn't realised until now that the 2 years have just passed (out of warranty) but that Hoover 5011 All-Rounder Bagless Vacuum keeps on going.

Great little bag-less vacuum that has continued to work great for 6 months so far. Just remember to empty and clean all filters after or before each use as with any Vacuum. Great for the cost, especially if you grab one on sale. Would not recommend for heavy duty cleaning.

Well built and good suction


This vacuum cleaner has good suction, but it obviously doesn't compete with higher end vacuum cleaners. It's small and light, so it's easy to store and move around. The 5011 is beautifully built and very easy to take apart to empty and clean. I use it for an apartment, but I've also used it in a medium sized, two story home and had no problem with the range.

Work perfectly fine. Small house.


It's got strong suction and takes anything. My house is small and so is the vacuum. I only have rugs and mats in my home. The power cord is short but its fine for my house. I don't have the power head also. Don't need it .
I use it about once a week. No problems so far.
No issues so far

Most frustrating and useless vac have ever had


It blows the filter and cover off the moment it's started, so dust is going back into the room. These are fitted in a wheel.
Value for money - a dust buster is less bulky to store so probably a better buy.
Stands on its end too easily.
Too small a dust container.
Maybe suitable for a tiny apartment but not carpeted bedrooms in a house.
Wouldn't bother with Hoover again.

It's a great machine but......


Fantastic suction. The bulky thing on the handle to hold the attachments gets hooked on whatever you're wearing all the time. It does stand on its end a lot while you're using it which is annoying. The filter on the wheel drops off constantly but the suction is amazing....definitely worth it

terrible could easily live without it!


Very disappointed with this product. Particularly paying $300 not the $99 some others seem to pay. The cord is frustratingly SHORT not something you would discover at the store Barrel is difficult to clean and takes quite some time to clean properly. Bought the turbo head as well thank goodness as the others are quite ineffective. The small brush is USELESS. Does anyone ever read these reviews and use them to improve their product or is it just a place to vent!!!

A good unit


Two of the biggest issues we have with vacuum cleaners in our household is their noise and their cleaning ability. Having tried several cleaners over the years we were yet to find one which could meet both of these requirements. After some online research, we were looking at the Hoover and the Miele. We tried both brands in the shop and decided to purchase the Hoover 5011. That was 2 years ago and the unit is still performing as expected. Maintenance is straightforward. I've washed the filters twice in that time - you need a couple of warm days to dry them. The 'axle' holding the small jockey wheel in place regularly comes adrift on ours (possible design fault) but it hasn't detracted from its overall performance.

What is the angled bit in the handle?

It's a nozzle attachment. Brush head and angled. Used for architrave and corners, tight spots etc
