I have had about 6 of this model Floormate, and will be upset if I have to eventually move to another model, as this one PERFECT! It has a 27 ft cord, and can take a real beating. I am a rescuer and petsitter with 5 dogs of our own, and I can't imagine ANYONE using their Floormate more than I do. In Florida, with all tile floors, and at least 24 dirty little feet running in and out all day, I could not maintain my reputation as a clean freak without my Floormate. It is SO easy to use, barely different than a vacuum cleaner, and there just isn't another machine out there that can clean every stroke with clean water and suck the dirty water away. The floor dries in about 4-5 minutes, and if you use the cleaning solution made for this type of machine (Hoover's own or Pledge Floor Care no-rinse formula, Walmart/Home Depot/grocery stores) you won't have streaks or water marks left behind. It blows me away that there's ANYONE still out there who swishes around a mop in a bucket of dirty water and swabs their floors with it. GROSS! I couldn't live the life I love without mine.
