Product Review

The Hoover Tempo Widepath U5140-900 gets the most support from more than 1,000 owners who have posted reviews at It's also included in Consumer Reports magazine's more scientific roundup of vacuum cleaners. We found a few interesting posts on and some video reviews at

Overall, owners of the Hoover Tempo Widepath U5140-900 upright vacuum are very happy with their purchase. They cite the vac's low weight (only 16 pounds) compared to others, which makes it easier to push and to carry up and down stairs. Owners are also pleased with the included allergen filter. The Hoover Tempo Widepath gets better feedback from owners than more-expensive vacuums in Hoover's lineup. Because the brush roll can't be turned off, the Widepath isn't the best choice for bare floors because the brush roll can spit debris back out. The Eureka Boss SmartVac 4870MZ (*est. $150) costs more, but its brush roll can be turned off, making it a better choice for vacuuming bare floors.

Product Description Review

The Tempo WidePath features a 15-inch cleaning path for super fast vacuuming when you need it the most. Plus, the WidePath cleans indoor air while you vacuum, thanks to an innovative allergen filtration system that traps 100 percent of dust mites, 99.98 percent of ragweed, and common grass pollens for cleaner breathing and fresher air. A powerful, 12 amp motor provides ample suction and doesn't leave anything behind. A brilliant headlight illuminates the cleaning path to ensure thorough vacuuming. Onboard tool storage keeps attachments, such as a dusting brush, furniture nozzle, crevice tool, and two extension wands in close reach. A smaller profile (approximately 33-1/4 by 18-1/2 by 9-1/2 inches) and lighter overall weight makes the Tempo WidePath easy to push, and easier to maneuver around and under furniture, too. And, your purchase is covered by a Hoover one-year warranty. Get a Tempo WidePath, and never get behind on the housework again! --Brian Olson
