Rated 5 out of 5Â by Dobermomma Hoover Max Extract
I bought another carpet cleaner( I won't mention names because I don't want to knock another brand) BUT I can tell you this, it was nothing like the Hoover...I have 4 extra large Doberman Pinscher's inside. I have one giant rug in the room where they spend most of their time... The rug is beautiful but I thought it was ruined. I bought the other brand and it didn't clean well at all... This rug has a snow white rim about 12 inches wide all the way around it...After using the other machine it was more like tan'ish ... After using the Hoover Max Extract it was once again snow white....and it was NOT soaking wet... Thanks Hoover...You built a great machine....
Rated 4 out of 5Â by thatsnotfashion Cleans great, but failure on first time using
Easy to setup and change tanks. Cleaned my carpets very well. HOWEVER, just as I was cleaning the last stair tread, the spray nozzle on the hose would not stop spraying solution! I had to wrap a baggie around the end nozzle while I finished cleaning the flat surfaces because even as I pulled the trigger on the uprght handle, it also caused the hose to engage and spray water/solution over my floors. I am taking it to a repair place and they assured me at Hoover that if it couldn't be fixed, they'd replace...but it's a hassle. Haven't gotten it loaded into my car and driven over there, but at least if Hoover doesn't stand by their product, Kohl's will. Great comfort in their no hassle return policy
Rated 1 out of 5Â by honestmom Very dissappointed
Our old hoover cleaner of 15 years stopped spraying soultion so we purchased this one to replace it. I cleaned a small area of carpet to try out the new model. The carpet was soaked! The new one does not have the suction power/quality of our old cleaner. We actually used the old cleaner to suction the liquid left behind by the new model. We got several cups of additional liquid with the old model. Needless to say, the new model was returned. Very dissappointed with the quality of the new hoover machines. We liked the idea of separate compartments for the soap and clean water. We also liked the idea of being able to remove the waste water tank without having to use the handle release. Ideas are worthless if the basics (suction) aren't effective.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by Danaaaaaa it broke on the second use
This carpet cleaner broke the second time I used it-- the clip that keeps the handle upright when not in use snapped off-- so it wouldn't stand up and was very difficult to carry. I returned it.
