Ideal for deep cleaning!

Comments about Hoover Max Extract 60 Pressure Pro Carpet Deep Cleaner:

The Hoover MaxExtract is for heavy duty cleaning - the kind you would devote the day to accomplish. We have a townhome with a mix of rugs and wall to wall carpet, and we found that the MaxExtract got the job done nicely using water pressure to wet the carpet fibers then suck the water back up into the machine. You can see the dirt in the water so you know it is working, and the carpets were visibly cleaner. This is a substitute for the kind of cleaners you would rent at the hardware or grocery store. Definitely recommend if you have a home that is large enough to store an appliance you will use only occasionally. I work at Viewpoints and wrote this more extensive review including video which you can read here: http://www.viewpoints.com/thegoods/Hoover-MaxExtract-60-PressurePro-Carpet-Washer-Review

Maneuverability
This vacuum comes with attachments to use on stairs and tight places since the unit itself is fairly large. The machine is substantial but was not difficult to use.

Ease of Maintenance
There are compartments for the solution (a small bottle provided) and the water which are easy to reach and empty. You need to empty fairly often, however, so be prepared for that. I have only used the vacuum once so beyond that, cannot comment on repair history, etc.

Suction Performance
Very good suction. In fact, when I got near the edge of my wool rug, the machine almost choked on it. You can also hear the power.

Versatility
Worked on Flor tiles in my entryway and kitchen, a rug in my living room (on wood floors) as well as carpeted stairs.

Design
No issues. It seems to be well thought-out in terms of where the levers are and compartments for water/solution. The cord was long enough, but not too long. Looks like a vacuum cleaner, but sleek.

Durability
This is a difficult area to grade because I've used the appliance once only but with the name of Hoover you have to assume if will stand the test of time!

MaxExtract lives up to its name and effectively cleans carpets.

By 

from Arlington Heights, IL

Comments about Hoover Max Extract 60 Pressure Pro Carpet Deep Cleaner:

The Hoover MaxExtract 60 is an easy to use, highly effective carpet cleaner. Water extraction is very good allowing carpets to dry in 2-4 hours (depending on airflow in the room). It is important to make multiple SLOW dry strokes to maximize water extraction. The collection tank is very easy to empty without leaking/dripping dirty water. The placement of the water dispensing jets has been moved forward of the spinbrushes, which I believe to be an improvement over their earlier designs. I appreciate the built in accessory hose - it makes it so much quicker and easier to use this carpet washer to clean up spills, small stains, and use the upholstery attachment.

Maneuverability
Not self-propelled, but its light weight and large wheels make it as maneuverable as any carpet washer on the market.

Ease of Maintenance
Easy to empty the collection tank with getting dirty water on yourself or floors. The small screen filter is easy to access and clean. The spinbrush cartridge is easy to remove/replace to clean out trapped fibers.

Suction Performance
The suction is very good, but the key is to make SLOW multiple passes.

Versatility
Cleans both low and high pile carpets and upholstery. Not for use on hard wood floors.

Design
The placement of the water jets seems more effective and the placement of the water and collection tanks simplify filling and emptying.

Durability
so far so good - no issues after 6 months of use (1-2 times/month, 3 x 700 square foot rooms) - frequent use due to pets.

Great for Houses with a lot of Carpet

By 

from Springville, NY

Comments about Hoover Max Extract 60 Pressure Pro Carpet Deep Cleaner:

I bought the Hoover Max Extract Carpet Cleaner Model FH50220 after I saw my sister in law had one. Our home in almost entirely carpeted and I needed something that would deep clean the carpet since I had a baby an had pets as well. This carpet cleaner works great n cleaning the carpet. It is easy to use and gets the job done. It works good as well to clean upholstery and small spills.There is two setting on this shampooer. There is a wash and rinse setting. There is an automatic shut off feature as well which is nice. When the dirty water tank is full it automatically shut itself off. The only thing I have discovered is that it takes forever for my carpets to dry using this cleaning on humid days. Other than that this is a great product.
