I just love this carpet cleaner. I find it easy to use. As you use the cleaning solution, the dirty water replaces it in a bladder next to it, so you only need to do one empty/fill at the same time. It is really easy to push, and does an excellent job of cleaning. I haven't used the handbrush yet, but it looks like a great attachment for furniture or stairs (my furniture is leather, and no stairs). Does a much better job of picking up the water than the old I had, so it dries nice and quick! I bought this because I had a very naughty puppy that had been going into a bedroom that had boxes stored in it (unbeknownst to me!) and had really made a terrible mess. I thought the carpet was RUINED, but I shampooed and let it dry in-between several times, and it was actually good! Wow! This was a great purchase. Thank you!!!
I just used my project cleaner for the first time. I like that it has dual brushes but I'm not sure if it is getting up all the water I sprayed on my carpet. When I went to go empty the tank, there was barely any water in it. It is picking up lint and some water. Any suggestions?
The unit was well packed and assembled like a breeze (One screw- how easy does it get). The dirty water and clean water tanks are very well balanced and fill and empty easily. The tanks are very easy to install and remove from the unit. Previously submitted reviews on water leakage were not a problem with this unit for me. It didnâ€™t leak. The MaxExtract® 77 Rug Cleaner lays down some serious amounts of water / cleaning solution. Following the cleaning instructions here is very important. (I canâ€™t imagine a situation where I would need to use the clean surge button) After having used other rug cleaners all I can say about the Hoover® MaxExtract® 77 Rug Cleaner is that it got my rugs the cleanest I have ever seen. There are some concerns; The SpinScrub® 77 Brush Assembly has one hexagonal drive post and takes some considerable force to turn by hand (Perhaps there should have been two hexagonal drive posts to lessen the load on the drive assembly). The internal part of the brush assembly is hard to clean because of how itâ€™s designed. The weight and balance of the unit I think needs some work. When the clean water tank is full and you are using the cleaner there is considerable weight on the handle for the user. Alternatively, when cleaning while the waste water tank is nearly empty there is insufficient weight on the nozzle suction end to effectively extract water from the carpet. In my opinion, it is only until the waste water tank is partially full that the unit does a satisfactory job of picking up the waste water out of the carpet. When cleaning the Waste water tank where you unlatch clean out cover latch and remove cover then - Rinse inside and dry. When drying; seals came right out of the detents in the tank and had to be re-installed by hand. (This is not desirable and the seals on the waste water tank seem somewhat flimsy. The seal should be held in place in the unit by adhesive or by seal design) Power cord stowage hooks could be placed further apart to decrease the number of wraps you have to make to stow the cord. The SpinScrub® Hand Tool falls out of its stowed position in the handle.
My carpet's look new again. I have 2 Australian Shepherds and a lot of dog hair and fine dirt. This Vacuum works great and picks up everything. The carpet in my living room is 2 years old and looks just like it did when it was installed. My other room's carpet is old and it looks so much better now.
