Good Value


A thought on the shampoo they supply. I ran a pro carpet cleaning company for 15 years, we had 5 full-time crews, did over 200 restaurants plus office buildings, etc. I purchased carpet shampoo in 55 gallon drums. I know what is in that stuff. Don't...

Works good, good spray power and good vacuum, doesn't leave the rug overly wet. Easy to use and refill the container. The brushes rotate which I feel does a more thorough action than a simple "back & forth" action as some other machines have. Has a 12...

As I see it, the weakness of this machine is it's physical structure, not the engineering. You have to treat this thing like a new-born baby. Everything except the motor is plastic, and not high-impact plastic either. All hinges are plastic, most are...

Poorly Made


Sence buying this I found out that Dirt Devil owns Hoover and we all know what junk they make!!!

It does clean well

The handles on both water tanks broke and the cord is not long enought

Even the cons on this carpet cleaner are no big deal. I'm quite impressed with the design and performance of this relatively inexpensive carpet cleaner. I would recommend this for anyone. New Egg has a fantastic deal on this item. (I checked out...

Easy to put together. It came with a "use it now" instruction sheet. Put it together in less than 15 minutes and was using it within half an hour. The clean and dirty tanks are insanely easy to remove and replace. In fact, this item is so easy to use...

It's a little heavy but glides back and forth like a dream. It almost feels like it's self-propelled. The instructions say that using any but Hoover cleaning products in the machine will damage it. I would like to have the option to use a cleaner of my...

Excellent Machine


We researched carpet cleaners extensively for several months before we finally committed to a purchase. We would recommend the same for others. Buy a cleaner based on what you need it to do. And, once you find the right one... definitely buy it from...

Very easy to use. Simply fill the tank, put in a little soap (we don't always use the soap, and the carpets come out great), and off you go! Follow the techniques shown in the manual and you will end up with a gloriously clean carpet. We were amazed at...

The only difficult part is cleaning the brushes and the suction piece on the front after you're finished cleaning the carpet. Understandably, it is probably just as difficult to clean any other carpet cleaner, so we're not sure if this is really a con,...

Great machine


I have the cheaper version sold on this site, and i love it. But, this one is a better unit and holds more water. Given the slight price difference this unit may be your best bet.

Great machine, this is an unbelievable price from NewEgg. I think we paid a lot more. This machine works great on carpets and upholstry.

Ours came with a previous clean water tank design that leaked everywhere. This model sold here HAS the newer tank, so I wouldn't hesitate to buy this one at all.

Great cleaner


I bought this cleaner for my kids for Christmas. They have 3 kids and have to clean up a lot of messes. Not only does this do an amazing job it's also very dependable. I would recommend this for any type of house that has carpet!

Only used this 20 times over 5 years and motor burnt out.


We fully expected to use this vacuum for the next 5 years or so, but the motor just burnt out on us. We are very disappointed, because we highly depend on this vacuum to keep our rug clean (since we have 3 dogs and a 7 year old boy). Since it's around...

Hoover Steam Vac Dual V carpet cleaner is defective.


First, the Hoover Steam Vac Dual V carpet cleaner has a defective valve at the bottom of the water tank that results in water pouring from it.  Hoover is aware of this defect & will replace the tank with a better engineered version by contacting...
