I love it, the Hoover Vacuum Cleaner WindTunnel T-Series Rewind Plus Bagless Lightweight Corded Upright UH70120. I was wondering if anyone had a hack to make the brushroll turn off for hard floors. it currently doesnt have that option. Thank you!

some vacuums hav a separat motor for th brushes. A switch is an option here. Some vacs hav 1 motor for everything. These typically hav a drive belt to the brushes. Removing th belt is an option for these.

Use a switch...
If operated with the airstream drill a hole to add a locking pin....
Easiest escape would be to invest the 10 bucks and to get a hard floor attachment.
Most use the same pipe diameter so even the hard rubbish is an option here if you want to go cheap....
