The Hoover story begins in 1907. Murray Spangler, an inventor who worked nights as a janitor, had an asthma problem. He called upon his inventor's creativity to find a solution to the dust that aggravated his asthma as he swept up at night. Spangler gathered a tin soap box, a fan, a sateen pillow case and a broom handle, and assembled an odd-looking, cumbersome contraption that managed to pull the dust away from the air he breathed. He quickly realized that this "suction sweeper," as he called it, had enormous sales potential, and he began seeking financial backing. W.H. "Boss" Hoover, owner of a leather goods manufacturing shop, bought the patent from Spangler in 1908, retained him as a partner, and soon had six employees assembling six units a day in a corner of the leather goods shop. A humble beginning indeed. The Tempo Bagged upright vacuum cleaner is a top-rated cleaning machine with a great deal to offer. It has a powerful 12 amp motor , which provides powerful cleaning performance. The 4 layer allergen filtration system helps reduce dust mites and pet dander, and the bag traps 99.9% of dust and pollen down to 5 microns. The Tempo Bagged also boasts a filter bag-check indicator for optimum cleaning performance. Not only does the Tempo Bagged have a 15-inch wide path for faster cleaning, it also is the highest rated lightweight/low cost upright.The patented WindTunnel Technology utilizes three distinct air channels to lift and remove the hidden, deep down dirt that other vacuums leave behind.

Review 1 for Hoover Upright Vacuum Cleaner U5140900
"I wanted a vacuum that was versatile and still lightweight so I could haul it around easily. I have had the power version of this vacuum in the past and like the HEPA features including the dust bag. It works great! I wish there were more color options, but then, it is a vacuum. It is an excellent value for the price."
