The Hoover Tempo is a classic unit that is built on one of their more durable platforms. It is a very easy vacuum to use and it works well as it doesn't have any complicated features. A simple on and off switch turns the vacuum on and it has 5 levels of carpet height adjustment. For above floor cleaning you will get two extension wands, a dusting brush, a crevice tool and an upholstery tool. A strong and reliable motor is the heart of the vacuum running at 12 amps. This is a bagged vacuum and it uses the Hoover Y style of bag which are very easy to change. They easily push on to a spout inside the dust compartment and are also easy to remove which keeps the dust from flying everywhere. For bare floor cleaning we suggest purchasing a seperate bare floor brush as this model doesn't have the agitator shut off function.
